Changi Airport

The last time I board a plane back to Penang from Changi, I had about 30 minutes to check-in, go through customs and boarding.

This time...

You see, my flight was 7pm, the plan was finish up my work at the sub-con's site around 4pm, and make a dash to the airport. In reality, I was too efficient, finished everything before lunch time, and ended up in the airport by 1pm.

Lots of free time... can lepak-lepak, finally can take some photos...

McCafe, you don't find this in Malaysia (at least not to my knowing lah)... they are McDonald's owned, but they don't sell burgers, they just sell coffee, like Starbucks...



Lunch at the famous Soup Restaurant. Famous according to my friends and colleague lah.. Nah they even have website one...


On the waitress's (quite pretty one) recommendation, I ordered a soup, a fish and a rice...

1. 淮山杞子参须顿鸡汤 Double Boiled Waisan & Ginseng Root Chicken Soup


2. 清蒸鳝鱼片 Steamed San Yu


3. 手剁肉饼砵子蒸饭 Beggar Bowl Steam Rice with Hand-chopped Minced Pork:


The soup was okay, the rice was forgettable, the fish.... AWESOME! AMAZING! SUGOI!!! I'll have it again if I go to Singapore again!

One good thing about Changi airport food is that the price here is the same as the price outside, unlike our beloved 1Malaysia where food at airport outlets are more expensive than outside food by a huge margin...

After lunch, there's still hours to kill, I was at Terminal 2, so I took the Skytrain to the newer and bigger Terminal 3, where all the long distance international flights take place...

Here I discovered a more interesting restaurant than the Soup Restaurant..

Ladies and gentleman, I present you...



Hahahaha... I regret not exploring more before making my choice of restaurant... Hmm, maybe next time I can eat here instead...

This restaurant, not just the name, even the decoration is like those that you see in the TVB ancient style dramas, with those wooden stools and tables.. Even the waiters and waitresses dress up like what you'd imagine of 店小二...

(店小二/Dian Xiao Er/Dim Siu Yi literally translates to Little Second of the Shop, is used to refer to the assistant of the restaurant's owner in ancient China)

Some more random photos from Terminal 3:




After tired of lepak-lepak around, there's still 3 hours to go till boarding time... so....


End up sitting around at Starbucks until 6pm boarding time... Starbucks and not McCafe because McCafe don't have power plug...

That's all I have from my recent Singapore business trip...
