Australia - Singapore trip

Updated 6 Aug 2011

We just drove from Melbourne - Canberra - Sydney - Surfer's Paradise and flew to Singapore. Here is some stuff from the trip. I'm publishing it as I write so you can see it sooner.

We stayed at 94 Highett St. I recommend this place because it was comfortable, well-equipped (had air conditioning, fully equipped kitchen, BBQ and 2 car garage), had a good location and was cheap.

Stayed at Pinnacle Apartments Hotel, Ovens St Kingston. Rooms were big and each apartment had individual hot water tanks. Kitchen was a bit sparse

The Macleay Serviced Apartments
28 Macleay Street, Potts Point, SYDNEY
No pictures, but we wanted to stay in a 6-person room. I want to point out that this room has only 1 toilet, which is too little. In the end we took another 2-person room. Also, the carpark does not have enough spaces. The street seems to have a lot of bars/shops.

Surfer's Paradise
Mantra Crown Towers
5 - 19 Palm Avenue
Surfers Paradise
The rooms were huge and each room had an assigned parking lot, but it was hard to find as there was no order or map to their numbering. It's quite near to the main shopping district.

Brisbane - Singapore Flight
We flew Singapore Airlines, and this is their current in-flight entertainment system. The screen is huge. Does anyone know what the knob to the left of the screen is for? Currently they have:
  • video in (red, white and yellow jacks)
  • USB port that supports mass storage, to play your music files (tested for charging iPhone)
  • iPod port (needs their cable, untested)
  • international power sockets on the armrest (untested)
