Last Glimpses of Singapore

SINGAPORE | Monday, 1 September 2014 | Views [341]

Would these be my last glimpses of Singapore?


There was a lump in my throat as the plane lifted off and climbed out of Changi Airport.  Would that be my last view of Singapore?  The East Coast Park, disappearing through the fluffy white clouds?  I had enjoyed many an afternoon either rollerblading or just relaxing on the beach watching the planes come and go.


My last view of a mall being built as we first lost touch with the runway, and what I assume will one day be the "Jewel" in Changi airport's crown?  My last view of a HDB?  As the plane turned and the little red dot vanished from view?  


Last glimpses or not, the were gone in an instant as the plane rolled out and climbed up - a sea full of ships off Singapore's east coast was the last thing I saw.
