Autumn in Big Apple

Following my blog post in June, my KF miles increased by 138k miles from 525k to 663k as of 31 Oct over the last 4 months. (You can tell that I have aged a lot from all the flying 😱). With two months to go, i am quite close to my Goal 8 target of 680k balance.

For those who have yet to take the longest flight ✈️ in the world (SQ 22 from Singapore to New York), the flight takes about 18 hours but it will soon be taken over by a 20 hours flight by Qantas from Sydney to New York.

For frequent travelers like myself, I actually don’t consume a lot while on flight. In fact, I sleep most of the time so that I can be fresh for meeting when I touch down. 😴

You can see that most of my meals are consumed in darkness as I try to time my sleep so that I have less jet lag when I arrive.

In any case, I am so “sick and tired” of "aeroplane ✈️ food" that I usually can’t finish the food. I don’t even turn on the in-flight entertainment ... 😵

While in New York, you can tell that Halloween 🎃 is a very big event 👻 and many houses would “dress up” for the “treat or trick” parties for the weekend.

Over the weekend, I  did a hike to Kaaterskill Falls.

I would recommend this day trip if you are in New York during autumn. The hike takes around 30 mins (one way) from the parking lot and you will be rewarded with an amazing view of a two-tiered waterfall.

It’s close to the end of the autumn 🍂 season and the golden yellow leaves 🍁 and cool weather made the hike pleasant and memorable. I do wish we have more such natural trails in Singapore.

Go do this trip if you are in New York City next time and Happy Halloween! 🎃


  1. Did you try the Canyon Ranch menu on the SG-NY direct flight?
    Do you get anything special if you hit 1 million KF miles?
