Dear friends and readers, thank you for voting for Alvinology for Maurice Lacroix’s The French Job as the Chinese Blogger representative. You would be glad to know I won in the end with the highest vote and was picked by the judges as the first choice Chinese blogger!
Nonetheless, I gave up the chance-in-a-lifetime all-expenses paid trip to Southern France for two weeks due to family and work commitment….
And also because I got invited to go on Scoot‘s inaugural flight to Sydney, Australia! I will be flying off in a few more hours at 11pm tonight.
Moreover, this flight is not just Scoot’s inaugural flight to Sydney, it is also Scoot’s inaugural passenger flight to anywhere in the world! I am glad to be among the passengers making history together with a fun airline brand and crew.

Fly with Scoot:
This would be my THIRD trip to Sydney, but I am still loving and discovering more of the city with each visit. If the weather permits, I would get to try sky-diving at Wollongong this time round. I chickened out on the second trip, but I regretted it when I got back to Singapore. This time, I am ready. 🙂
Stay tuned to this blog for more updates on both my flight experience with Scoot and travelogue in Sydney!
We’re an airline for the young, the young-at-heart and the value seeking. People who remember that travel is all about discovering, connecting, experiencing, and enjoying. Simply put, people with Scootitude™.
So come the middle of this year, we’ll bring you a new travel experience. We’ll start with a fleet of Boeing 777s and a safety, security and operational DNA reflecting our heritage. We’ll offer you new non-stop routes from Singapore, and a new price paradigm on some existing routes – Australia, China and ultimately the world.
We’ll deliver service with personality and a contemporary feel, and the choice to pay only what matters to YOU. And of course safety, reliability, punctuality and financial strength.
We announced ourselves to the world publicly on Nov 1 2011, and since then, a lot has happened. We’ve rallied a committed team together, with individuals with years of experience in each and every field, and a core focus on making sure we stick to our values and fulfil our promises to YOU.
