So here I am....

Posted February 6th, 2013 at 9:49 PM by Swolligator

Recently, I spent a month in China doing some sort of immersion course in order to garner more experience and level up in my Chinese. Suffice to say, my written Chinese has become a lot better than it was, but my spoken Chinese hasn't improved as drastically.

Last night, turned out my flight from Beijing was delayed by 40 WHOLE MINUTES. This wouldn't have been a bad thing if it meant not missing my connecting flight in Singapore to Auckland. Needless to say, the staff were somewhat empathetic and booked me another flight back.

Only problem: it's 12 HOURS after I landed. With 7 hours to go, I'm sitting in Singapore airport casually abusing what free Wi-Fi I can get my hands on.

If anyone else is in Singapore Airport at the moment, CONTACT ME! I need human interaction but people seems so uninterested in making conversation.

Oh, and I did a bit of freelance translation: Waiter was trying to tell these old, Japanese ladies about the seating arrangements of the different restaurants in English. They couldn't understand. ICHIRO TO THE RESCUE. After speaking Chinese for a month, it was hard getting back into another language, especially when I started thinking in Chinese.

So yeah, as you can see, I'm slowly going insane.
