Breakfast was included in the room rate and it was a filling affair each morning.

Afternoon, we went to PVJ mall, and had lunch at Sagoo Kitchen.

Explored Rumah Mode outlet. A huge factory outlet very popular wth locals and tourists, and the selection is definitely huge!

The day ended with a relaxing spa treatment at Zen Family Spa. Very good massage and very cheap too!


Being at the second highest floor of the tallest building in the area, landing aircraft were literally sweeping across the rooftop!

On the day of departure, I received a message that the flight was retimed (again…) by 3hrs late. Apparently due to operational reasons again, which I believe was lack of aircraft.

Not that I minded though, allowing me a massage followed by a nice late lunch at Belachan restaurant.

Took Grab to the airport and checked in for the flight. We were the only international departure so late in the evening.

As part of service recovery for the retimed flight, SilkAir provided a meal for all passengers. It was nothing memorable though, but better than nothing.

The inbound aircraft arrived early and after a quick turnaround, boarding was called.

Refreshing towels were already placed on each seat. The flight would be very full.

Legroon on the A320 is slightly better than the B738.

Indonesian domestic carrier Expressair parked beside.

Even though the flight was full, boarding was completed rather swiftly.

Doors closed, safety video played and engines were started. There was no need for pushback.

Taxi out from the parking bay to the runway. It was literally just a turn from parking to the active runway.

Takeoff from Rwy29.




Meal service started soon after.

photo 33656135843_95909e1635_b


Choices were Fish with mashed potatoes or Chicken with rice. Again, it cam with fruits.

photo 33656139143_889c6f4440_b


The fish with mashed potatoes looked and tasted literally of a soggy and mushy dish.

The chicken with yellow rice dish was much better.

Rest of the flight was spent continuing on a movie on SilkAir Studio and soon descend started.
