You are allotted 30 minutes of time in the shower spa and you have 5 minutes of running water.

While on other airlines the flight attendants will often refuse or be quite hesitant to heat up your own personal food on Singapore I had heard that was not that case and was counting on that. Indeed our flight attendant was overjoyed that we had our own food and was only too happy to heat up the food we brought from Carlos & Gabby’s. She even proactively offered to put the leftover food in the refrigerator for the remainder of the flight. That turned out to be great as we ate the same food on the airplane on the way home! On Cathay the flight attendants will very likely not be willing to heat up or refrigerate your food for you.

The food was not as good as I had in Chabad of Hong Kong Island, downtown Melbourne, Paris, or even Venice over shabbos but I don’t think anyone left hungry. On shabbos day after another lengthy davening the entire community eats together and it’s quite nice as well. Again, the food was nothing to write home about, but thanks to a decent cholent (something I’m told they don’t always have) we didn’t go hungry. The restaurant isn’t open on Saturday night, so we filled up at shalosh seudos which had surprisingly good food. … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: 2 Nights In Singapore And Back Home On A Korean A380
