Aladdin's adventure on board M/T Roy Maersk



Wednesday 11th of September 2013 and my alarm was set to go off at 5 thirty in the morning. Of course, I had got exactly zero sleep. I went to bed at 10 o'clock yesterday evening, but I spent the night tossin' and turnin'. So it was kind of nice when my alarm went off, now I could get out of Aladdin's adventure at Suvarnabhumi International Airportbed and I had my breakfast. I went down with the garbage around 6 thirty and the car as waiting for me.

I told the driver that I was just going to get my bags and we could take of towards Suvarnabhumi and Singapore Airlines flight to Singapore. There were no people at Singapore Airlines check-in and immigration and security was empty so I was sitting with a pot of tea and a ham & cheese “SUB” in front of me in no time.

Singapore Airlines flight SQ 973 was departing from gate C3, just close by where the Thai Airways skidded of the runway 2 or 3 days ago. She lost the front wheel landing and according to the news the plane should have been removed yesterday and traffic back to normal. One runway blocked, or partly blocked and all departures and arrivals were delayed. Our flight was delayed by an hour or so, but by then I was asleep under a blanket.

There was a girl coming to pick me up at the gate and we had soon passed Immigration and Custom and I was dead tired by now even though I had been sleeping during the flight. But I was soon wide awake.
- Change of plans, you will have to stay at the hotel, the Driver said.

We took off towards Fuarama Hotel and I was making plans to go to buy a new computer at Sim Lim. I have been looking for a computer in Bangkok, but I have failed to find any lap top with a Aladdin's adventure in Singapore20" screen. I found a SAMSUNG 17" but only with a Thai keyboard so I never bought it. But in Singapore it should be possible to find a lap top with a screen big enough.

I checked-in and I went to my room where I brushed my teeth. I was ready to Yet another Smiley on www.aladdin.stleave, but I wanted to call our Agent for the latest updates and berthing prospects. Nothing but instant disappointment.
- They will take Pilot at 16:00
Our Agent called the driver and we decided to try to get me to the anchorage before the Pilot would board Roy Maersk. I looked at my wrist watch, it was past 3 o'clock. I checked out 10 minutes after checking in and I waited for the driver to take me to West Pier and the service launch to take me to Roy Maersk. Yes, I was disappointed.

But when I was onboard just after 4 o'clock it was pretty nice, well, very nice to be on board and I was glad I missed the hotel. Pilot came on board a few minutes after me so it was in the nick of time. Time for new adventures!
