Checked out at 6am and caught a taxi to Changi T3. The intent was to check-in our 2nd bag at the much talked about First Class section of T3 but things did not go so well. Factors came into play that caused us to completely miss the entrance i.e. our driver not understanding what first class entrance meant, me not doing my homework on where the entrance was and it was still dark outside when we drove up to the terminal. We were dropped outside the business class entrance and I went up to the the information desk to ask where the FC entrance was. She first said aisle 4 but what was SQ economy, then she said aisle 1 but it was some other airline and then she said aisle 6 also had a FC lane but that was not what I was looking for. After 15 minutes of walking around and my frustration building, I gave up and checked in at the Business class lane. I did end up finding it later on in our trip .. NOTE TO SELF - do whatever it takes to use SQ Changi FC entrance before I die.

Turn left after immigration/security to head to the SilverKris lounge. We took the first escalator up instead of the 2nd escalator and did the long walk around the KrisGold lounge to get to the SK lounge. Mrs.I pointed at the Gold lounge and said "That looks like a nice lounge", to which I replied "You know nothing, Jon Snow" and just made it out of the reach of her slap. :D

The lounge dragons guarding the front checking everyone's BP as they entered.

I showed one of the dragons our BPs along with the Golden Ticket and she inquired which flight we came off. I said Sydney and the answer was happily accepted. Escorted past the J lounge, through the F lounge and into Xanadu. All pictures in previous TR's (mine included) will never do justice to seeing the PR in person. She asked us if we would like to sit in the dining area or the lounge and we chose the dining area. A waiter immediately helped us by filling glasses with water and providing the menus. Mrs.I chose the Eggs Benedict while I chose the Roti Prata. I am happy to report that my choice was the hands down winner this time. :D

The lunch and dinner menus made me wish I went the previous night in addition to this morning. :D

As it was 7am-ish in the morning, there were quite a few people coming in for breakfast. This was the same for the First and Business class sections.

To any FT-er who will be visiting the PR for the first time or never has had the Roti Prata before - please, please, please try this. You will not regret it. Finger licking good.

After breakfast, we relaxed by the big screen area and watched the new about the London attack on Parliament.


Too bad for this stuff blocking views of the tarmac.

Mrs.I got bored and wanted to go walking around. Since our flight was out of T2, we left to take the train over. Took some pics of the F lounge as we walked out.



The madness of the Business Lounge. Hightailed it out of there.


Noticed the signage for the SQ lounge, soooo why not. :)

Showed BPs to the male dragon who pointed left to the business class lounge to which I replied if we had access to F lounge. He looked again and pointed right. :)

There was a "made to order" counter off to the left and I did notice Roti Prata being brought out by a waiter. Do I want another, hmmmmm? No, no, I did BTC and I wanted to have room.

After a quick bio, we left to make our way to the gate. Did not realize our gate was at the far end of the terminal and ran on the movators to make it in time as boarding was almost complete.

Our bird to Bali.

We were welcomed aboard and shown to our seats. The stewardess greeted us by our names and pointed out the menus for our meal selection. The captain came on and informed us of a 2.5 hr flight and would be pretty smooth all the way.

Wonderful angled lie flat seats - appropriate for this short haul leg.

while Mrs.I was filling out the immigration forms, I snapped the menu pics.

Funny enough, this was the same menu from Bali to Singapore. The rest of the menu was the standard alcoholic and non-alcoholic stuff, so I will not post it twice.

Once the seat belt sign was turned off, the cabin crew swung into action for the lunch service. The stewardess who greeted us earlier was taking meal orders on our side of the plane. When she came to us, she noted our BTC selections and wanted to confirm we were still ok. Oh hell yeah. :)

My choice was the Singapore Chicken Rice. It was my first time having chicken rice and OMG, it was phenomenal. The rice and chicken breast were perfectly moist and the 3 sauces (dark soy, garlic and chilli) accompanying the dish were perfect enhancements. In my zeal to try the chicken rice, I skipped the fruit altogther lol .. like who needs fruit right? The pannacotta dessert was good as well.

Mrs.I chose the chicken curry and it was also very good. It was tough to choose a winner as both dishes were really good.

After brunch, we were watching movies on the IFE. The system was old and clunky but servicable. 2 hours passed by pretty quick and we began the descent into Bali.

Made our way to immigration, collected our bags and went to find our Amankila rep.

Conclusion

Overall, the experience and service at the Private Room and our flight was very good. The wait staff and cabin crew were very friendly and attentive but never intrusive. Did I forget to mention that the female cabin crew were gorgeous? ... like "WOW, eyes popping out of my sockets" gorgeous. Mrs.I asked why I was wearing my sunglasses inside the cabin. :D
