The return flight was 100% full! Thus it was very surprising that I could get such cheap deals 2 weeks before the flight.

Kuching Airport departure hall. Not too busy at this time of the evening.

MH B734, one of the very few planes parked at the terminal.

The Tiger has arrived. Slightly late arrival which I guess was due to congestion again at Changi. This time, we had the use of the aerobridge. Probably aerobridge charges are cheaper in the evening?

Boarding started very soon after the arriving passengers disembarked. The flight was packed to the max! 9V-TAF had the older clothed seats.

My seat had broken springs within the seat cushion which could be felt, making a very uncomfortable ride. Poor seat pitch at row 25 (avoid rows 25-30 on all budget airlines' A320s). No emex seat this time round…

Silkair arrived almost half hour late, thus reinforcing that the delay was due to Changi's congestion.

Took off from Rwy25 for the 70min flight to Changi.



Onboard service started but not many takers. Cabin view inflight.

Soon we were approaching Singapore. Descending over Batam.

Landing on Rwy02C, about 15min late. We made up quite a lot of lost time enroute.



Taxied to Budget Terminal Gate 1! Parked just beside Nancy-Bird Walton, due to return back in service in a couple of months.

Disembarking via stairs. It was a very very long walk to immigration from Gate 1!
