Finally this day has arrived. Waking up was easy, knowing full well that today is the day I will be on land, my homeland.
I came on deck and immediately felt the familiarity of these waters. The waters crowded with cargo ships, occasional glimpse of Singapore’s Maritime Authority and Navy ships, and not forgetting Pedra Blanca (Horsburgh Lighthouse) just a few miles away on our port (left) side.
Being the resident Singaporean on Team Mission Performance, I hoisted the Singapore flag as we entered Singapore waters. Soon enough, I spotted even more familiar sights; planes in & out of Changi Airport, Changi Naval Base, Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal, high-rise buildings along East Coast Park. It got even more exciting when the skyline of Singapore’s hub came into view; the Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Sands and Marina Bay Financial Centre.
This of course meant one thing, Singapore reception… 3G data coverage.. internet!
