Unfortunately it was time to leave Malaysia after just 4 days, I would gladly visit Malaysia again in the future. We booked a taxi via the Myteksi app and departed from our hotel at approximately 06:30 AM local time. The traffic was quite bad in KL at this time but it got better once we entered the motorway towards KLIA.
Our driver was very friendly and had a few chats with us, most notably with my dad.
One hour passed away and this Uzbekistan Airways B763 appeared from the window. I quickly grabbed my camera and managed to take a shot (a crappy one). The driver noticed me taking pictures of it and asked me whether I knew the airline. I told him it was Uzbekistan Airways.
Getting closer to KLIA.
Entering the departures area.
We arrived and came to a stop at 07:55 AM local time. The journey from our hotel in KL to KLIA took 1 h 25 minutes.
We entered the terminal bulding through the entry that was supposed to be close to the SQ check-in desks.
I snapped a few pics of the terminal before heading to the check-in desks.

Immigration was next up after check-in was completed. Immigration was quite efficient at KLIA.
Followed by security which was very smooth as well.
The famous model plane stand at KLIA.
FIDS at KLIA. Our gate was located in the satellite terminal which meant we'd had to take the skytrain/aerotrain to the satellite building.

Our flight was scheduled to depart from gate C2.
I know this shot is crappy but it was taken through three windows and the haze was horrendous. I didn't manage to get a decent amount of spotting pics from KLIA so I'll post whatever I have.

My ride arriving from SIN. This particular bird (9V-STG) was delivered to SQ in May 2009.
Airline: Singapore Airlines (SQ)
Flight number: SQ107
STD (Scheduled time of departure): 10:25
ATD (Actual time of departure): 10:41
STA (Scheduled time of arrival): 11:25
ATA (Actual time of arrival): 11:20
Scheduled flight time: 1 hour
Actual flight time: 39 minutes
Origin: Kuala Lumpur
Aircraft: Airbus A330-300 (A330-343)
Boarding was announced at 10:04 with all priorities respected. Y passengers were allowed to board from 10:07.
Legroom shot, the seat pitch was decent. The overall seat was quite comfortable though. Every seat had a footrest if I remember correctly.
Wing view from seat 37K.
Every seat had an AV input, a USB port and an iPod connector allowing passengers to listen to music or watch videos on their iPod or iPhone through the IFE screen.
The cabin started to fill up quite fast and our estimated load in Y was around 85-90%.
Pushback was done at 10:28, 3 minutes after our scheduled time of departure.
MH 388 in the distance.
MH 772, unfortunately these don't fly to DAC anymore. All 3 daily flights are operated by 738s nowadays. It used to be 2 daily 777 and 1 daily 738. It doesn't really surprise me as their current economic situation isn't positive. It's actually quite sad to see them in this position and all these parked heavies. MH has always been one of my favourite carriers since my childhood. I hope they'll manage to recover in the future.

Taxiing to the active runway for departures, an EK 77W was in front of us.
I have another friend in Indonesia that managed to track my flight and send these screenshots. Thank you so much!
Oman Air A333 rolling down the runway for a departure to Muscat. I barely managed to grab my camera and catch this one, another half of a second and I'd miss it.

Departure from runway 14L.
This particular PTV offered a good amount of movies, tv-programs and a decent amount of albums. No headphones were distributed on this flight due to the short flight time.
One side of the safety card, unfortunately I forgot to take a pic of the other side.
There was a small mirror on the tray table which I had never seen before.
The service began 10 minutes after departure. The flight attendants had to serve over 230 passengers in a few minutes and had to collect the trash before we started our descent. I could see they were slightly stressed but managed to serve everyone very professionally. They even managed to offer quite a few smiles along the way. We only had a drink service (coffee, tea or juice). I'm aware that MH also serves a bag of salted nuts on this route but they operate 738s with far less passengers. I was very impressed by the efficiency of the crew on this flight.
We began our descent into SIN 15 minutes after the drink service.
A nice cup holder.
Landing at Singapore.
We had a pretty rough landing in Singapore. Our plane had a short taxi to our gate shortly after we vacated the runway.
Garuda B738 in sight.
Two other SQ planes had arrived and parked at the same area shortly after we disembarked.
Changi T3 was very spacious and clean which wasn't surprising considering it's rated as the best airport in the world (Skytrax).
Despite its rating, immigration was the biggest letdown at SIN. It took us approximately 50 minutes to clear immigration and the lines weren't even long. Immigration at DEL, DMK, BKK and KUL was way more efficient, even DAC was slightly better. The process was very slow and my father wasn't impressed. There were customer feedback screens after clearing security and my father rated the immigration experience as 'very poor'.
A few shots after clearing immigration.
We stood in line for a taxi afterwards and were soon off to the city.
We arrived at the city after 20-25 minutes. I guess that's it for this FR, thank you for taking your time to read it :).
A nice Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.
Marina Bay Sands.
Wasn't so lucky with the weather.
Kuala Lumpur - KUL
Singapore - SIN
Summary is as follow:
Cabin comfort - Decent seat pitch and a comfortable seat overall. More than enough for this short sector.
Crew - Professional crew who did their job in a very efficient way.
Meal and catering - Many would think a bag of nuts or something could have been nice but one has to keep in mind the FAs have to deal with a lot of passengers in a short time, I have nothing to complain about here.
Entertainment - Great IFE with a good amount of content, the responsiveness could be better though.
On-time performance - Departed 16 minutes late and landed 5 minutes behind schedule.
