This is the final flight after spending 2 weeks in Europe for holiday. There are not many pictures as I was very tried and slept through most of the flight.

Arriving at Zurich Airport via the SBB trains, just two stop away from Zurich HB( Zurich Main Station). Extremely convenient! At check in, if i remembered correctly there was quite a queue but it moved fast and check in was completed in minutes.

A few planes spotted.

Today our flight is departing from terminal E. Boarding was smooth, carried out by boarding groups.

Taxi and take off was smooth and we reached our cruising altitude.

Peanuts and drinks was served after reaching cruising altitude.

As I was 15 years old at that time, the cabin crew came and ask for my choice first. She took our order for breakfast, think breakfast was to be served first (timezones differences). She soon realised and re-took our order.
Lunch was soon served. The menu for this flight is:

Appetiser: Waldorf salad - Apple & celery salad with shrimp

Main Course:
Pan-Fried Chicken Breast with Shallot Sauce - Served with spaetzle, chestnut & red cabbage
or
Stir-fried Pork in Oriental Sauce - with chinese greens, mushroom & egg noodles

Desert: Engadiner Nut Tart

I chose the Chicken option. The presentation could be improved but the taste was fine, cake was a bit hard though.

After lunch, I soon fell asleep. I did watch a few movies and visited the toilet. The toilet was kept clean throughout the flight.Cabin after lunch.

When I woke up, it was time for breakfast. The cabin crew that took my order for breakfast earlier on still remembered my choice and served it to me! I am impressed.
The selection are:
Fruits
Main course:
Oriental egg noodles with Braised Beef - served with Chinese greens and Mushroom
or
Egg Frittata with Bacon and Cheese - served with tomato salsa and roasted potatoes.

I went for the egg frittata option.

Once again presentation was so-so, but food was pretty good.

Our flight then neared Singapore, and was put into holding position but soon landed, marking an end to an awesome flight and holiday.

To summarise, the food was ok but not I excepted SQ to do better (maybe it's just my expectations?). IFE was excellent, Cabin was clean and Cabin Crew was outstanding as usual. Great flight!
