Shoes and socks packed, Christmas decorations stowed, on the eleven o’clock shuttle ferry and a four pound taxi ride to the airport, we settled to brunch – an excited Bear. Soon our A380-800 was backing out of her parking spot.

We head out, turn left at an original shoeshine stall, take the lift to 3a to find the covered walkway to the massive shopping centre that stretches through seemingly endless corridors below the Petronas Towers, Aquaria and huge Conference Facility – all modern and brightly lit.
