Wet and rainy evening with heavy rains as this TurkishAirline took from from SIN on schedule, first time on this airline. Decent deal RT tickets S$700+. So far no complains, lucky to have 3 seats on my own which will enable me to lie flat down for parts of the journey and hopefully get some cat-naps.

Tue: SIN-IST 12+hrs, including take-off and texting into the jet-way, arr into IST airport on schedule. Like NRT, one has to go thru’ security-check even for transfers. The only problem was that the line for the security-check was nearly an hour long and here I saw with my own eyes a custom officer opening a bottle of whisky and pouring it into a garbage container!!!

Have been in IST in 1966 and 1989, but first time in this airport. Enjoyed the shopping –  €57 (S$88). Even with an hour in line, still managed to buy all that, image what I can get with another hour 🙂

Flight from IST-OSL not full, managed to get a row of 3seats and got some rest. Food is pretty decent and the 4hrs flight flew by quickly with good views over the Black Sea, Romania, Ukraine, Belarus, Poland and Sweden.

Arr OSL on schedule, took the airport Xpress train RT NOK180 for senior (S$30) into town, left the baggage in the locker@the train station NOK60 (S$10) and walked to deliver some papers by Rådhuset. Absolutely hypnotizing beautiful and so tired that I could just fall asleep standing admiring the Wonders of Winterland. Good to see the family – dinner@Bicks.

Wed: delivered and picked Olai from the daycare. Spent some time playing games and building Lego with him, such a delightful child to be with. He liked the cookies and stamps.

Lovely clean-cut simple wooden church from the 1800s and was lucky enough to stumble into the pastor who showed me the interior. Pop here ca 1,000; area 102.45 km². Somehow, churches in many places seem to have the best location and sites, including this which over looks down to the lake, Mjøsa.

Feiringklinikken – a private cardiac hospital with my own hospital-hotel room and bathroom before the procedure. Will be moved to another room with all the med equipment etc hooked up after the procedure.

img_4225OK food, tonight’s dinner was chicken curry (more like chicken stew), salad, chocolate pudding with vanilla sauce. With all the tests completed and results cleared for non-invasive cardiac ablation procedure – even the needle is ready in place in the arm (or rather it was left there after one of the tests) for the whatever meds etc needed. With all these on-going needles, will at least be ‘holey’ at the end of this 🙂
