The next morning, we went to the very popular Thean Chun coffeeshop for breakfast. It was real crowded. We ordered from all the stalls within the coffeeshop.
Two styles of chee cheong fun.
Satay up next.
Kai see (shredded chicken) hor fun. This is the most popular, with a wait required of more than half hour for this bowl of simple dish.
Ipoh white coffee and caramel custard to end. What a heavy breakfast!!

Due to the rather warm and sunny weather, we chose to stayed within Ipoh Parade mall after checking out of the hotel. For a late lunch, we had some Penang fare at the Penang Road Teochew Chendol chain. Though not the original stall, the dishes still tasted rather authentic.
We left the hotel at nearly 4pm for the airport to catch the 5.20pm flight back. Airport was again a less than 10min cab ride away. It was the 'peak' hour with a Firefly and a Tiger flight departing for Singapore within an hour.
Receipt-style boarding pass.
After immigration and security, we were housed in this small and packed waiting lounge, which filled up nearly to capacity with the passengers of both Firefly and Tigerair SIN-bound flights.

24 January 2016 Tigerair TR 2483 Ipoh (IPH) - Singapore (SIN) A320 9V-TAF Budget Class Flight Time: 1h15m
With the early arrival of aircraft, boarding was called ahead of schedule as well. Priority Board-me-first, though announced, was not enforced as the waiting lounge was pathetically small and passengers were crowding to board. So much for priority boarding.
Again, a walk across the tarmac to board the aircraft.
Note the difference in colours on the engines and the tailfin. The fuselage and engines were repainted with the new corporate identity but not the tailfin.
Boarding in progress. The original cloth-cladded seats on this older aircraft was refitted with leather covers. Flight ended up rather full and overhead bins were filled up as most passengers did not have check-in luggage.
Out the window.
Legroom, was expected, budget-style tight.
Boarding completed and doors closed way ahead of the STD. Short taxi to Rwy22 for departure.
Taxi and takeoff from Rwy22, 7min ahead of schedule.
BOB was offered. Did not get anything but a few purchases were observed.
All too soon, we were descending. However due to congestion, we were put in a holding pattern for almost 20min!
Approaching Changi's Rwy02L.
Landing on Rwy02L, 12min ahead of schedule.
Taxi to Gate F31 at Terminal 2.
