During my recent flight back home, Paul and I decided to fly Singapore Airlines. We have been flying budget the entire year so we thought that we might as well treat ourselves with a little comfort this holiday season. Was it worth it? Yes, Yes and YES!
Check out the meals that we had during the flights to Manila and back to Singapore:
SQ 912 : Singapore to Manila
I wanted to try something different during this leg so I specifically requested for an All-Seafood Meal. Yes, Singapore Airlines allows you to specify any dietary restrictions that you may have (low salt, no dairy, Halal, vegetarian, etc). Sadly there was no no-corn diet so I played safe and went for all-seafood.
The best thing about flying Singapore Airlines is the wide-array of drinks available. Despite flying Economy, we got to choose from their long list which includes wine, whiskey, vodka, beer, fruit juices, sodas, cocktails (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and coffee/tea. Our favorite is the Orange Cooler which we think is a mix of Ginger Ale and Orange Juice. We were also able to try the Fruit Spritzer which is a combination of Apple Juice and Sprite. The second drink was a tad too sweet for my taste so I normally just stick with the former.
SQ 919 : Manila to Singapore
The flight back to Manila was a bit more emotionally challenging for me. Having spent more than two weeks at home with my family and closest friends, it was quite hard to temporarily bid them good bye again. It's a good thing that we flew via Singapore Airlines again where the in-flight entertainer and good food somehow cheered me up.
Sadly, I had to skip the appetizer was it had quite a generous serving of corn with Smoked Duck and capsicum. I passed this little bowl over to Paul who happily enjoyed this extra serving. The dessert fell short of my expectations. I was actually excited to try the Ube Mousse Cake with Macapuno but it was too creamy for me.
Both flights were quick and turbulent-free. We barely noticed that we have been traveling for more than 3 hours thanks to the in-flight entertainment that got us both very busy. Finally, it was time to catch up on our favorite TV Shows and Movies.
The service was really good. I was just wondering why we weren't given any pack of nuts on both legs. I do remember enjoying those when I flew SQ to Hong Kong. Nonetheless, Singapore Airlines is now one of my favorite airlines and I can't wait to start booking my flights for 2015 with them.
