Visited the nearby vintage-themed JJ Green Night Market as well.
Went for a Japanese buffet feast at Oishi Grand Buffet Restaurant at Siam Paragon. This is a buffet for all die-hard sashimi lovers!
There is actually a Merz-themed cafe at Siam Discovery Center.
After a relaxing massage session, we had a light dinner at Lek Seafood.
This was followed by the sinful yet must try After You Cafe dessert!
More local eats on the last day.
Lunch was at the popular Greyhound cafe, which recently also opened a branch in Singapore. That said, prices in Bangkok are said to be much lower than that of Singapore's. It was also my first visit to this popular jaunt in Bangkok and food was really good, though pricey by Bangkok standards (still very affordable by Singapore standards though).
To Suvanarbhumi Airport for the flight home in SQ Business Class. Check-in was quite with no queues at the Business class counters.
Premium pax were entitled to use the premium lane and a Premium Lane pass was issued together with the boarding pass. This was a godsend at BKK with the winding immigration and security queues at the normal lanes.
Proceeded to the Silver Kris Lounge. It was only a small lounge with minimal facilities, but with a very good quality buffet selection.
Grabbed some light bites and desserts.
27 December 2016 Singapore Airlines SQ 979 Bangkok (BKK) - Singapore (SIN) A330-300 9V-STD Business Class Flight Time: 2H06M
It was a short walk to the gate, where the Airbus A330 was still being prepped for departure.
Priority boarding was called and it seemed that 25% of the passengers were Business or PPS. Boarding through Door 1 and was welcomed by the Inflight Supervisor. Just a few steps to my seat at 12A. A blanket and pillow were already placed on each seat. As SQ's Regional Business Class seat has been reviewed countless times, I shall not elaborate too much on the seat itself.
Christmas decor in the cabin.
Inflight magazine, IFE guide and Krisshop mag. A selection of newspapers and magazines were also offered by the crew.
Welcome drinks and hot towels were offered. I chose the featured mix Royal Sparkle.
The menu has a holiday-themed cover.
Lets take a look at the menu:

Boarding was completed rather swiftly considering the very full flight this evening and doors were closed. Pushed back and safety video played.
A rather lengthy taxi to Rwy01R with aircraft departing ahead, and we took off about slightly behind schedule for the 2hr flight to Singapore.
Video of the departure.
Into the night sky
Started on the movie "9 Lives", which is short enough to view on this flight.
Dinner service started immediately after seatbelt signs were turned off. The IFS, a Leading Steward and a stewardess were conducting the service in the Business cabin. The only meal cart went down the right aisle first, followed by the left.
Meal cart coming down the aisle.
Due to the short flight, the Light Dinner would be a one-tray affair, with starter, main and dessert all on the tray. Luckily, my choice of the salmon was still available as it was a very populr choice. Had a Sauvignon Blanc to go with the meal.
Starter of Marinated Thai Style Prawn with spicy green papaya salad. The prawns were very fresh and plump.
Assorted breads were offered, where I chose a garlic bread and a lavosh.
For the main, I had the Salmon Dad-Diaw with Jaew Sauce - Thai style deep fried marinted salmon, sauteed vegetables and egg fried rice. As expected from BKK catering, this was a very tasty dish and portion was large as well.
Ending with a Moist Chocolate Cake with berry compote. The cake was rich and satisfying.
Rounding up the meal with a special festive tea, TWG Red Christmas Tea.
Slightly more than halfway through the flight after meal trays were cleared.
Visit to the lavatory, which is equipped with the usual Business Class amenities.
A pair of empty seats at the rear.
View of the cabin.
Got a pack of A350 playing cards from the nice crew. The crew serving in Business Class were all professional and efficient, attending to all requests promptly, keepng up with the high SQ standards.
Started a bit on a Taiwanese movie "Cafe No.6", which I would continue viewing on my next flight.
Descending into Singapore with cabin dimmed. I switched to the flight map.
Video of descend.
City skyline during the approach to Changi.
Landing on Singapore Changi Rwy02L right on schedule.
Only a short taxi to our gate at Terminal 3 and parked beside one of SQ's whale.
Hope you have enjoyed this report and all comments are welcomed.

This was my shortest ever flight in SQ Business Class and the high standards and offerings remained. The seats are perfectly fine for the short duration of flight and both catering and service are top-notch. A very pleasant way to fly regionally indeed!
