So, last day of my overdue private trip is finally over, and I'm not gonna lie, I do love the idea of staying there for two weeks.

I mean, yes, I do have a great time, but just four days, is a bit… time-crunched. I mean, I even said to my friend, if I had another few days coming by, we can go to the zoo right next to River Safari.

On my last day, me and my friend went to River Safari in Mandai, and we do have a great time there (Try the Amazon ride! Seriously!), but it's already raining so we're not continuing our journey, but go straight to the hotel, pick up my luggage and straight to the airport instead.

Lion Air, Batik Air, Thai Lion and Malindo counters are located in T3 Changi Airport, and let's be real, I'm allowed to do an early check-in there, because my flight's a very long way ahead.

After lunch at Nando's in T2 and lounging around, it was time for me to go.

I got 8C on my flight, which is near the front door. Ooh lucky me.

The width of this seat is fine for 159 cm of me.

Please bear this in mind that Lion Air is a ULCC (ULTRA-LOW-COST-CARRIER). Unlike my last flight where they offer Duty-Free and stuff, they didn't sell anything. So for the next 1hr-45min flight, a complete boredom.

Oh by the way, is this even legal?

I mean, for Pete's sake, there's that magazine in every single seat!

Oh Lord have mercy! Anyway, here's the usual in-flight magazine below…

And the usual safety card, and praying card.

Cabin crew, they all hanging at the back. They're not even walking around. The only time they did during taxi was distributing the customs card. And only one person doing this for the whole drive!

Oh, anyway, I went to the toilet to pee… and…

Probably Bob the Drag Queen from RuPaul's Drag Race Season 8 will have a fit seeing this seat in real life.

Arrived at the airport, since it's Friday, the indoor traffic was pretty decent. I even get out from the immigration pretty early in fact.
