Now running a Flightradar24 receiver in Singapore: T-WSAP38. Range is fairly limited due to surrounding buildings and not having an amplificator on the antenna. Not much I can do about that for now.

I guess I get to post now when flying to Brussels.
Flying SIN to BRU with Lufthansa.
BRU to MAD with Brussels Airlines (which I guess is now Lufthansa too) from 20/10 till 23/10.
BRU to BCN with Brussels Airlines from 27/10 till 31/10.
Leaving the 5th November to SIN again with Lufthansa and returning with Swiss (their brand new b777!) on July 6th.
Also changed blog timezone to Singapore.
My quest for opening a bank account in Singapore:
It’s also worth noting I didn’t receive my DBS text messages with my OTP in Belgium (Belgian number) while it worked in Singapore (same number). I assumed routing issues or my provider (Proximus) blocking their gateway. I tweeted them about the issue, they called me, tested alternate SMS routes while I was on the phone (“I sent several test messages, which one did you receive”) and they waited on the phone until I managed to do whatever I was trying to do and made sure I got the OTP via text message this time. Great customer service!
With FlatTurtle we have people working for us via a Singaporean company, outsourcing. So I already transfer money every month to Singapore with BNP Paribas Fortis (~€40 fee), but for my rent deposit I wanted to try something new: enter TranserWise. Works really well and fast, and needless to say, the fees are much lower (more than half).
While I’m at it, I’m also using a Revolut credit card when abroad and not dealing with euro’s. I use this card all the time when travelling (now that I have a local card in SG I won’t need it in SG anymore, obviously).
There. Relocating to Singapore for the time being. Becoming an expat.
Lufthansa BRU => FRA => SIN.
Back in Belgium in October for a bit though.
Auf wiedersehen for now. Be good Belgium.
Let’s see if it’s really world’s best airline*. 🙂
Having a quick citytrip to Hong Kong (not Cathay this time, but Scoot (B789 Dreamliner) & Jetstar (A320)) and then returning in a little over two weeks just before Pukkelpop with Turkish (A333 & A332), together with Leanne.
* apparently Qatar surpassed SIA? Always heard SIA was best… 😮
Edit: wrote this pre-terrorist attack and pre-coup… Quite less excited now.
