Having ordered special meal during booking, got served first. Many passengers skipped the meal as they had already slept by the time meal service started.
Special Hindu Non-Vegetarian Meal [HNML]
Fish curry, veggies and rice with dessert. Food was well made.
After the meal, lights were dimmed for resting. Like many others, I had two seats to stretch. Slept for the rest of the flight and woke closer to Mumbai. I didn't photo the inflight magazine as it was same as the Sydney - Singapore flight. I don't remember if menu was provided as I was served pre-ordered meal.

Landed on runway 27 and taxied past the domestic terminal 1A and 1B.
Immigration was quick with very few passengers as this flight arrives after the mid-night to early morning rush. Baggage took sometime to arrive as the Terminal was inaugurated a month earlier.

End of trip
Singapore - SIN
Mumbai - BOM
Singapore Airlines provided excellent service, being a red-eye flight once service was provided the cabin was darkened and almost the whole cabin was quiet including the crew resting. Hardly any service request was made, slept well to arrive fresh at the destination. Singapore Changi is efficient transit airport with enough facilities for transfer passengers. Mumbai Airport was newly constructed, everything was clean and tidy. Baggage took sometime to arrive. overall a satisfactory trip.
