Had a simple and tasty seafood dinner at See Good Seafood Restaurant. Apart from the usual seafood dishes, also ordered the popular wild fern "midin" dish, a must try when in Sarawak!
And a sweet ending with sinful cakes from Secret Recipe cafe.
Breakfast on the final day was at Choon Hui cafe, a very popular eatery in Kuching, famed for its Sarawak Laksa and touted as the best in Kuching. Even Anthony Bourdain is a fan of the laksa and visited the eatery twice to have it! The cafe only sells a few selection of items (toast, popiah, kolo mee and laksa), and we had it all. It was a long wait for the laksa, but was definitely worth it.
And the famed Choon Hui Sarawak Laksa arrived after more than 30min of waiting. Well worth the wait!
Our final meal in Kuching was a late lunch/early dinner at a busy eatery in Chinatown. Of course, also had my last bowl of Sarawak laksa before leaving Kuching!
Verdict: Sarawak Laksa and Kolo Mee are the staple dishes of Kuchingnites. All the ones I tried are pretty good and it is hard to determine the best as it is up to individual preferences, an the taste do vary among the many stalls. I must say that I have not been disappointed with any of the ones I have tried so far.
Proceeded to the airport for the evening Silkair flight back to Singapore. For unknown reasons, the check-in hall has yellowish lighting and was very dimly lit compared to the rest of the terminal. No queues for check-in even though it was a full flight. Due to overbooking, the flight was upgraded from the original A319 to an A320.
Boarding pass issued.
Departures for the evening.
30 October 2016 SilkAir MI 377 Kuching (KCH) - Singapore (SIN) A320 9V-SLO Economy Class Flight Time: 1H07M
Boarding was on-time and orderly.
Decent seat pitch. Blankets and pillows were available on request.
View out the window.
November edition of the inflight magazine.
SilkAir Studio wireless streaming IFE selection. Wet towels were distributed after boarding was completed.
Even though boarding was completed early, pushback was delayed due to a maintenance issue, as informed by the captain. Necessary paperwork was required after the issue was fixed, which resulted in a 30min delay.
Finally doors were closed and safety video played as we pushed back.
A quick taxi to the mid-section of the runway and departed into the night via Rwy25.
Very shortly after takeoff, refreshment service started immediately. Service was very good and crew responded to all requests swiftly even though the flight was full.
On offer today was a warm Chicken Masala Wrap, along with a full range of beverages. The wrap actually tasted rather good and portion was quite big too.
Very soon, we were approaching Changi from the north and landed very smoothly on Rwy20R. We were almost 20min late though due to the delayed departure from Kuching.
Taxied to Terminal 2 where we parked beside a Scoot Dreamliner.
Thanks for reading and hope you have enjoyed the food pictures!
Kuching - KCH
Singapore - SIN
A very comfortable flight on SilkAir, with good service and pretty decent catering on this short sector, and was made even sweeter with the price even lower than LCC AirAsia!
