Conclusion

Malaysian Airlines service was good for a short flight, flight did not have any entertainment system on board being an old aircraft. Was able to catch the connection even though the transit time was short. Kuala Lumpur airport was clean. Wasn't there for long to check the airport. Singapore Changi was efficient and easy to access.
