Singapore Airlines (SQ)

The return portion of a good trip always brings a distinct sense of ennui with it. You know you have to return to work, reality will soon set in and (if you’re anything like me) you’re also absurdly full from all the eating you’ve been doing.

I was actually a little worried that I wouldn’t get access to TPR, given that my onward journey was in Business (on a plane with an F cabin). I had heard conflicting reports on the SQ forum and this seems to be a policy that ebbs and flows and is very much dictated by the whims of the staff.

I thought I would try a little misdirection and handed over my First Class boarding pass on top, with the onward Business Class pass underneath.

This seemed to do the trick, the receptionist’s eyes lit up and she smiled, asking me to follow her to TPR.

In the late evening TPR is definitely busier but the staff are still very attentive and keen to ensure that you are well taken care of. Whilst the main sitting area was very full, the dining room was relatively empty

First things first, time for a glass of Dom and a counterbalancing bottle of Evian

I ordered the foie gras and quail egg burger, without a bun. The burger was fairly dry but the egg and foie were great.

Overall, I find the dining setup at TPR to be a little strange. There is a limited buffet (less choice than in the First Class lounge next door) and the food that is brought to you a la carte is not particularly inspiring. Maybe things have just moved on since TPR first opened, some of the wow factor is lost.

Personally I far prefer spending time in Cathay’s new Pier lounge at HKG.

After dinner I quickly caught up on some trip reports

Seeing as I had three hours to kill, I thought it would be an opportune moment to inspect the First class lounge next door
