Singapore Airport Lounge

30 March 2023

Emphysemic I hope?

Melbourne to Singapore on an Airbus A350

I do not have much time so lets crank this out.

The plane was completely full, do not let the photo below fool you, I do not think there was a spare seat. Not surprising given that it is the Easter weekend and School holidays. Normally I somehow avoid that despite flying in April most years?
Anyway, the guy next to me, coughed once every 0.6 seconds, for 7.5 hours straight. A very light cough, phlegm free. He only stopped while eating. I was wishing bad things upon him, I think he had emphysema, so bad things are coming for him anyway.
Surprisingly, it was time for a taste of the old days, with the in flight entertainment not working, and multiple reboots of the whole system required to get it going about 2 hours into the flight. This used to happen more often than not, but it is a rare thing these days. I was fine with this, as it provided me with entertainment, to watch everyone pressing their call bell to ask why they cannot get it to work, despite the announcements that it is not working. And each time the silly stewardess would try and get the individual screen to work despite fully knowing and being able to see that all 300 screens on the plane were not working.

Anyway, now I am in Singapore. I had a shower. I am hydrating in multiple locations. And I do not have much time. No time for my regular over long sentences.

Singapore-Airport-Lounge - I knew it was full, so I boarded first. Most people who's white privilege allows them to board first do not fly economy. But I do.

This was my first lounge stop in Singapore. I am rarely here during the day time as I normally take overnight flights. During the day they seem to have a noodles made to order stand, today I did not avail.

Instead I had some old rice noodles and the dim sum surprise, the bun still had the paper on the bottom, which I ate anyway. Are you supposed to? I have no idea. Now I am full of paper.


Singapore-Airport-Lounge - Proof of shower. They did not always have these in Singapore in the Kris flyer gold lounge that is available to people flying with 'Virgin status'.

And finally, my second lounge stop, the rare lounge on the far side of the airport that is smaller and darker and just as empty at this time of day.
The next update will be late, but will have the ultra important to everyone for seemingly inexplicable reasons 'hotel pictures', which will include photos of my single bed (I think I got upgraded to a twin room from a queen for free... I did not ask for that, sounds like an 'upgrade'). That is enough air quotes and brackets.
