Sing Air & Inflight Movies



A cloudy afternoon in Singapore. Taken from the window of Singapore Airlines economy seat no. 67B while approaching Changi airport on my way to Mumbai.

Picked "Kenny" on the inflight movie list. A brilliant australian film about a hardworking, dedicated, all out plumber who took an aeroplane for the first time to the "Plumbers World Expo" in the States. Yeah there is a real business in shit. Its all about the life of Kenny-- being single parent, taking care of his son and Dad, his passion at work and sorts of plumbing expertise, traveling to the expo and finding new love. A simple decent life which gives the movie a serious humbling message. All business executives should watch.

Another favorite inflight movie was Korean "Miracle on First St.". A typical Korean comic flick about a real estate executive who faced a challenge in trying to evict squatters for a planned commercial housing project.

Visited Singapore in the early 80's twice and held the distinction of "cleanest city in the world"! Hope that's still the case. Second cleanest at that time also, was Perth/Fremantle in Western Australia. Cheers....

Yup singapore should still be among the cleanest cities. But it was not in the latest top 25 cleanest city according to Mercer (or Forbes?). Auckland is in the list which, i think, is as clean as SG except for the better climate and density.

Ito pala yung Kenny na sinasabi mo hehe. Kailan kaya maging cleanest ang Manila, 100 years from now? Cheers..
