2 weeks after Phuket, I made a short 32hrs weekend getway to Kuala Lumpur. Tickets bought just slightly more than a week before departure was only S$40 on Tiger to KL and RM85 (or S$35) back to SIN on Jetstar. A great deal! More pictures and videos to do the talking.

Finally the Tiger is next to depart after the Lion. About 15-20min of waiting for departure.

Announcement after seatbelt signs were switched off.



First, immigration cards were distributed. Then the all gals cabin crew (1 Singaporean, 1 PRC and 2 Filipinos) came down with the BOB menu to take orders for snacks and drinks. Orders were then delivered from the galley. Guess it is more efficient for such a short flight than pushing the whole trolley down the aisle. Duty-free items were then offered for sale. Not many takers for the on-board sales though.
