Introduction

This trip was undertaken in 2009. After returning from Shanghai, spending few days in Singapore and Malaysia . Not a fan of day-flights as can't sleep and feeling of exhaustion at the end of the trip. Chose this flight as it was the best option of the available flights.

Flying past Indonesia

After breakfast, it was time for rest. Singapore Air has excellent in-flight entertainment product catering to its customer profile. I didn't watch any entertainment on the IFE. Had the flight information displayed throughout the flight.
