PlaneSpotting


I dropped bag at airport  and spent some time at Terminal 1 viewing deck as It was too early in the morning to head to city. Shops open around 10 a,m and close late. As its very humid during day time, I planned to go to city later when it was cooler.

    Hello koresh!!

    Dosa!! Oh, how I miss dosa! I tried it when an Indian family invited me for lunch when I visited New Zealand years ago and I loved it! They even gave me some urad dal that I took back home with me and I preoared dosa for several weeks. I miss it so much.

    I loved all the plane spotting in your report. I can say that Jetstar's is my least favorite livery ever!!! It's hideous!! 🤣

    Thanks for sharing!!
