T5 still keeping me awake at night

T5 departure concourse

Day three and things are going a little better with T5, but still extremely ‘fragile’. Here is a photo I took on the first morning, before any problems emerged. It is still such a wonderful terminal, I just hope the systems start working more reliably soon.

T5

Well, only a few hours to go before T5 is finally open for business. The first flight scheduled to arrive in T5 left Hong Kong 4 minutes early, so we’re off to a good start. I’m away to bed, since I need to get up at 3:15am (!) tomorrow. An exciting day ahead.

Snailing

Very strange weather this weekend. OK, so it is Bank Holiday and we expect ghastly weather. But we seem to have managed sunshine, rain, snow, sleet, hail and gale force winds in quick succession.

Create your own annoying ringtone

Robert’s annoying ringtone

I thought I’d have a go at composing a ringtone for my phone. After all, how difficult could it be to produce something better than the ghastly annoying ringtones included with the phone? I needed something that started quiet (less embarrassing when accidentally left on in meetings), but became louder and more attention grabbing as time went by. I finally completed my masterpiece and uploaded it to my phone. I was just testing it when my daughter came in. “Thats really annoying”, she said. Gahh. Maybe I should take it up professionally.
