I was pretty much on time for my evening flight. Having checked-in at the counters, which were empty when I arrived at the airport, I whisked past security and was on board the moment boarding commenced.
I settled down into my assigned seat 1F for this 13-hour flight to Singapore. There were only two other passengers with me on this flight, which meant that the cabin crew to passenger ratio was far superior than usual.
I was offered a glass of orange juice prior to takeoff, a refreshing start to my journey.
Dinner service commenced just after takeoff, beginning with Singapore Airlines’ signature satay. The meat was tender and succulent as usual. More peanut sauce please!
Up next was a duck breast salad with citrus dressing, together with some garlic bread. It was delicious, but nothing special.
Call me crazy but I decided on the Thai green curry with rice for my main. Once again, the craving for comfort food trumped that for premium proteins.
The pastry with ice cream was a perfect way to complete the dinner service.
Soon it was time for bed. I headed to the lavatory to freshen up while the cabin crew offered the turndown service. What welcomed me when I returned to my seat was my fully-flat bed.
I managed to catch some decent programmes on my 23-inch flat screen television too.
The breakfast service commenced a couple of hours before touchdown, starting with a plate of fresh fruit.
Next was the yoghurt and buttery croissant.
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this after landing, so I decided to have the roti prata for my main.
Soon, the cabin crew began to prepare the cabin for arrival.
