In Western musical theory a cadence is a particular series of intervals or chords that ends a phrase, section, or piece of music. Cadences give phrases a distinctive ending. An analogy can be made with punctuation, with some weaker cadences acting as commas, indicating a pause or momentary rest, while a stronger cadence will then act as the period, indicating the end of the phrase or musical sentence.

Booking for My First Flight Ever

My VISA was granted on 29th March. I had been doing quite a bit of survey on flights to US. I had to go to Seattle for the conference and also visit Stanford. Further I had to meet my close friend Maggi in Singapore on my way back. So I chose to fly across pacific rather than atlantic. Since I had to break my journey I was of the notion that I had to make separate bookings between Chennai - Singapore and Singapore -San Francisco. However it turned out that, when I contacted a booking agent he told that I could take a break journey on my way back for how many ever days I want. This fixes my airline to be Singapore Airlines. I was expecting this to be a very costly affair but it turned out to be cheapest fare Rs 60,200 for the complete journey. Further Singapore airlines is well known for its food and other facilities. In addition I accidentally happen to see an agent called STIC travel who provides discount for ISIC cards. That saved me an other 800. Finally I got my ticket booked for the best airline at the cheapest rate. Further since my booking is till US I get a baggage allowance of 2 X 32 Kgs right from Chennai.
