The flights back home involved flying from Singapore to San Francisco via Taipei and then a next day flight from San Fran to Toronto. The flight to TPE would leave at 12pm, so we made it to Changi Terminal 3 for 9am. The plan was to check-in, hit up Shake Shack for the 10am opening and have enough time to pig out, get to the lounge and then the gate.

Got to SS and we were directed to the line-up for the actual line-up. Once SS opened at 10, the lines moved pretty quickly as there were multiple staff members available to take orders. Overall, it was a 20 minute wait to order and we got our food within 15 minutes of ordering. For perspective, on the night of the rain vortex light show, it was an hour wait just to order and then another 15-20 to get your food.

Bold statement!

Double bacon cheeseburger for me, regular cheeseburger for her plus cheese fries and Pandan shakes. Verdict – 2000% legit. I’m a big fan of Five Guys burgers and this is now my favourite. Waiting for when it comes to Canada - cross fingers. Speaking of coming to Canada, Chick-fil-A just opened up a couple days ago and now I have to do a taste test to see who is better. The Pandan shake was overly sweet for my liking and I would have been happier just sharing one instead.

Everyone well aware of this spot. We went in for a quick bio and water before heading to the gate

The crew were extreme friendly and welcomed us onboard. As usual, they made conversation with us which was well intentioned and engaging. They confirmed our BTC booking and started us off with PDBs.

With boarding, safety demo and other checks complete, we were on our way to Taipei.

With the lunch service complete, I reclined the seat to full flat angled mode and watched movies till landing. Like other flights during this trip, it was uneventful.

The pilots pulled off onto a side taxiway and had to hold for a bit as there was a China Airlines A330 still at our gate. After that, we pulled right in.

We wished the crew goodbye and made our way to transit. A good flight overall with a good crew who looked after us and was much appreciated.

Next up – Eva Air from Taipei to San Francisco

Conclusion

Airline - excellent service again by the SQ crew in J class - extremely friendly and engaging. The BTC order was on point and we were thoroughly satisfied with our choices.

SIN airport - whats not to love about this airport - seriously? :)

SIN lounge - still better than the AC lounge at YYZ! :)

TPE airport - going through transit was interesting and signs was slightly confusing at one point but we made it through. Lounge was decent but nothing great to write about. Did not even bother checking food options. Shower rooms were great.
