POPMART Leg 5: 1998, Australia, Japan, South Africa


'At home it's still yesterday...'

'At home it's still yesterday...'
Travel day.  London to Auckland (day 2)

Leg one of the journey completed and I headed for the B.A. lounge at Singapore€™s Changi Airport.  It€™s only an hour€™s stop-over but I took advantage of the free wifi, as there are some new renders of show video I needed to look at.   I also ran into Darren Hayes on iChat which was a nice surprise.  Skype & iChat make the world a much smaller place.

LHR-SIN was fine, I ate, I slept, I read (The Elegance of the Hedgehog €“ promising, but I€™m not sure it€™s in-flight friendly), I movied (The Kids are All Right which was€¦all right, and Shrek, Forever After which was hilarious.  The writing is so good.  When Eddie Murphy called the Gingerbread Man €œHey, cracker€, I snorted so loudly I woke up the bloke in the next seat.)

Met the lads back at Gate 26.  Next call is Sydney for a longer stop, I think.  Steff gets a monumentally long layover, though we don€™t know why.  Craig points out that it€™s already tomorrow in New Zealand, so therefore we are in the final day of this journey.  I phoned home, where it€™s still yesterday.  What time is it in the world?
