A short 3 nights stay and time to fly back home. Phuket Airport's current check-in and departure hall is really rather depressing. Small, old and crowded. Can't wait for the new terminal to open soon! SilkAir's check-in counters were quite empty even though the flight would be totally full in Economy again. However check-in queues for most other airlines were snaking and very long.

Departure immigration and security was not too bad and we soon ended up in the equally depressing departure lounge, with few shops and overpriced eateries.

SilkAir's newest aircraft would be flying me back. The plane had arrived slightly early from SIN.

Short features were played on the overhead screens. Seatbelt signs were switched on for most of the flight due to bouts of turbulences.

Meal service commenced and on offer were Nasi Lemak (coconut rice) with chicken, fish otah, french beans and omelette, or Fish in tomato sauce with pilaf rice. Went for the Nasi Lemak, which came with a container of spicy sambal sauce, and it was great! Very much better than the Nasi Lemaks I had on SQ, MH or AirAsia!! Easily match the better ones on ground!

Overflying Kuala Lumpur.

Starting the long descend and approach into Singapore. Due to traffic conditions, we slowed down a bit during the descend and approach, fadding on to the flight time.
