During the transit in KL, I proceeded to Plaza Premium Lounge again to waste the hours away. This time round, the lounge was not that crowded.

For my light dinner, I had a freshly prepared fish-cake noodles.

Some plane-spotting from the lounge. KLM B772ER departing for Jakarta. Lionair B739ER pushing back soon as well, most probably also heading to Jakarta?

Sri Lankan A343 taxiing for departure as well.

Just completed one of the shortest (or probably the shortest) scheduled A330 flight in the world.

Silkair A320 heading back to Changi.

After a couple of hours of lounging, I left the lounge, hopped onto the Skytrain and headed over to the Main Terminal for the final flight home.

Gatehold room was rather crowded. Looked like a full flight again!

Malindo taxiing pass.

Boarding started slightly late. Passed the Business Class cabin.

And into economy to my seat at 17A again. The legroom on the BSI aircraft seemed slightly less than the leased ones.

Welcome aboard! The only female stewardesses seen on this flight were on-screen as the flight had an all-male cabin crew!

Announcement after takeoff.




Flight map and inflight entertainment were switched on for this short flight. However you would need your own headphones if you needed sound. I stuck to the flightmap for this very short flight.

Again, peanuts and juices were served. I had an orange juice.

photo 9620081453_002298e3fe_c


A very short flight indeed! We were nearly there barely 10-15min after departure!

photo 9620081189_0d147c74ae_c


However, after nuts and juices were served, the crew came down again, offering these small boxes to passengers!

photo 9620080943_9ede20cfc0_c


The box contained a couple of dates. Guess this was a Hari Raya festive treat!

photo 9620080669_e6a7ec7cb8_c


We were nearing Changi, but the pilot came on and announced that due to congestion, we would have to slow down our approach. Thus we flew leisurely at 500km/h along the southern part of Singapore, offering some nice views as well! But this lengthened our flight time to 45min.


Passing Jurong Island.
