We are in 2023 and I have not had a single post in 2022. 2022 had been a rough year for me, mainly from a life-changing health event. I fell sick in February and not long after, I had my right kidney removed due to a growth which turned out to be cancerous. Right now, I am undergoing 17 doses of immunotherapy (of which I had my 11th dose today).
I have been refraining from traveling (short of a short road trip to Kuala Lumpur in December 2022 to visit my mom) due to the side effects I experienced in my first few doses. With the returning to near normal for air travel, the itch just got more intense and when I chanced upon an opening on SQ322 Suites, I decided to jump on it.
After being grounded for almost 15 months, I will be flying again (finally) to London in February. Looking forward to the following:
- SQ 322 Suites
- SQ 305 First Class
- Intercontinental Park Lane (last stayed there in 2018)
- Club Intercontinental Park Lane
- The new SilverKris Lounge and The Private Room
- LHR First Class SilverKris Lounge
I hope that I can remain well and healthy for my upcoming trip! Really looking forward to it.

Oh, how 2020 had been an exciting year for all of us – we were introduced to many new things like toilet paper rush, queuing up and stocking up of food, safe distancing, circuit-breaker among the many new experiences. Now with 2020 drawing close, we have flight to nowhere, cruise to nowhere and fresh from Singapore Airlines – Dine@A380! Although I wasn’t keen on SIA@home, Dine@A380 was something that was harder to resist.
Many has written detailed reviews on how good the whole event was – which I have to agree it was an excellent job done by the crew who volunteered their time and effort for it. You can tell that those who were there that day were proud to be part of the event!
I shall then write on my experience on the bad and the good side of the whole experience starting from the booking process leading up to the event day.

There are currently 2 flights to Osaka daily (3rd one coming in April), either the red-eye at or a noon flight. Although I would have preferred to try out the Dreamliner, the timing was rather not conducive for my short travel as I end up losing one day. I opted instead for the ungodly hour of SQ618 which departs at 130am (for 5.5 hours flight).

I decided to put this up first as I felt that this review deserved the priority. I was initially booked on Business Class on both legs (SQ 618 and SQ 619) but 1.5 weeks out, Suites on the SQ 619 was still available and after some thoughts, I decided to make the plunge given the special nature of this trip (and giving in to my weak spot for Suites). I guess it was well worth it! What I experienced on this flight was a total contrast to my anniversary flight on SQ 308 last year.

26 October 2007, the historic flight of SQ380 – the inaugural of the world’s first double-decker plane. This was the day the Airbus A380 made its maiden flight with lots of publicity and fanfare. It was suppose to be the plane that will change how people travels in the future.
People from all over the world made bids to be the first to fly on this mighty beast, the plane that will overtake the Boeing 747 as the undisputed champion! For me back then, it was just another day and it happened that I watched the news from on-board Star Virgo where i was having a short holiday with my family.

I booked this trip for my family year end trip and the price was certainly attractive! I paid $470 per person (all inclusive) which is way cheaper than what I paid for my ticket to Wuhan. Both SQ 830 and SQ 833 is flown on the A380, specifically the new A38R. The last 5 A380-800 that was delivered last year spots the new Suites (6 Suites in the forward section of upper deck) and the all new Business Class (with the double bed at the bulkhead). The Premium Economy and Economy section however is the same as that of the 2015 and 2013 design. Besides Shanghai, the other destinations that utilizes the A38R include Hong Kong, Sydney, London and Zurich (I am still hoping for SQ25/26 to get this but I doubt this will be the case).

This is my 5th Suites flight in 6 years, the first 2 being regional (SQ866 and SQ802) followed by 2 long hauls (both SQ26 in 2015 and 2017) and now SQ308.
