Tough EU stance? It’s in Germany’s culture

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

BERLIN (AP) — Head to the checkout at an Ikea in Stockholm to pay for your new leather corner sofa and with the swipe of a Visa card it’s yours. Don’t try that in Berlin — that’ll be €1,699 ($2,080) up front please.

It’s that financial culture — a deep-seated aversion to debt and an emphasis on responsibility — that makes Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hardline approach to solving the European financial crisis so popular in Germany. Click to continue »

Oktoberfest Munich – Lufthansa Flight from Singapore

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

In october, I flew to Munich to go to the Oktoberfest. The flight from Singapore to Munich was in a Lufthansa A340. The service was very friendly, food was relatively good, seats were comfortable but, in-flight entertainment could have been better. There were only about 25 new release movies to choose from, compared to Singapore Airline’s 26. Other than that, everything went well, and the Oktoberfest was epic.
