I was a ball of energy when the fambam arrived at the NAIA Terminal 3. I can’t help but smile to myself because, in just a few hours, we’ll be arriving in Singapore after 8 long years! My son Tutapel was merely 3 when we first visited the place and although we were there for four days, we weren’t able to see much because of the rainy weather. (Note to self: Don’t fly to Singapore in late November to December.)
Another reason for my excitement was flying aboard Singapore Airlines for the very first time. I’ve heard quite a number of favorable reviews about this particular air carrier that’s why I can’t help but be curious about what sets it apart from the rest, at least, as far as economy flights are concerned.
One thing I noticed was that containers of complimentary earphones were stationed before boarding so you can have your pick right away.
A plethora of HD touchscreen monitors were peppered all throughout the plane quite similar to the set-up of Cathay Pacific.
What distinguished Singapore Airline’s inflight entertainment from Cathay Pacific’s was a more vast array of movies (yes, there are Korean and Bollywood, mind you), TV programs and games, available with just a touch on the screen.
As far as service was concerned, the flight attendants were indeed respectful, attentive, with an auto-pilot aim to please button and just down-right nice! Really!
While we were busy browsing through the game selections, Tutapel and I were chatting about the food. I told him I had a feeling that the food will be great so he better enjoy it as much as he can.
My cutesy nephew and niece were seated beside us and I thought it was really sweet that the three cousins from my husband’s side were photographed together while inside the plane which was a rather rare occurrence.
Tuts and I chose two different dishes so that we can try both types. The selections were tasty and the main dishes were served warm.
The sausage and potatoes topped with shredded onions were delish; but, the Fish with Noodles was a hands-down winner! I can still taste the noodles’ savory flavor paired with the meaty goodness from the fish.
It was indeed a hearty breakfast and a sophisticated initiation to the fastidious and discriminating taste of the air carrier even in its economy flights.
Selection # 1: Sausage with Omelette, Potatoes, and Beans
Selection # 2: Fish Fillet with Noodles
Singapore ➙ Manila
I was doing my own version of a happy dance at least inside my head because the dishes were different from what we had just days before.
The kids were served first; perhaps, to pacify their temperamental nature, if you know what I mean. Tutapel had his fair share of his Chicken Rice, a good thirty minutes before us, adults were served with our dinner choices.
Selection # 1: Chicken with Rice
And yes, my favorite ice cream bar was even part of dinner. What more can a girl ask for?
