This return journey to and from Taiwan gave me the opportunity to review both regional Business Class cabins currently offered by Singapore Airlines on the Boeing 787-10 and Airbus A330-300 respectively.
Fully aware that the regional Business Class on the Boeing 787-10 and Airbus A350-900 is far superior, I embarked on this journey giving the 2006 Business Class on the Airbus A330-300 the benefit of the doubt.
As the flight departed at 8-ish in the morning, I elected to reach Singapore's Changi Airport Terminal 3 at 5am to check out the Business Class section of the SilverKris lounge as my prior experiences have only ever been in The Private Room.
The iconic control tower at 5am.
An empty departures level.
For the first time ever, Business Class.
5 minutes from check-in to the SilverKris Lounge.
Turning left for the first time, instead of turning right to the First Class section and The Private Room.
The Breakfast buffet was still in full swing.
One gets to indulge when one is on vacation, I suppose.
Today's special was Mee Rebus. It paired surprisingly well with champagne.
As the boarding gate was in Terminal 1, I began the long trek but not before stopping at the cactus garden to get a preview of the aircraft that I was about to board.
The Boeing 787-10.
No First Class on this aircraft, unfortunately.
Just about to cross the threshold.
The newest regional Business Class seat in all its glory.
The futuristic interior of the Boeing 787-10.
Definitely proud to be Singaporean.
Crossing South Cross.
Fancy seat controls.
In case you need to know which runway your aircraft is using.
Morning rush hour.
The island nation of Singapore.

In case you forget which cabin your flying in.
In-flight Menu. But I had booked-the-cook.
First Course: Fruit platter.
Second Course: Museli.
Main: Bak Chor Mee (BTC-ed).
More champagne for everyone!
No more champagne.
Updated lavatory products across SQ's Business Class.
After breakfast, nothing could beat a mid-morning nap.

After the cabin lights were dimmed, I snuck in a movie.
I had timed it pretty well that by the time "Venom" was done, decent had begun into TPE.
Arrivals was a mess as there were a few flights landing together, coupled with limited immigration counters.

Singapore - SIN
Taipei - TPE
Singapore Airlines had once again delivered.
The crew, seats, meals, and entertainment options were adequate for a 4 hour regional flight within Asia.
