Black Pepper Chicken in SQ Econ Class

Wokfried chicken in black pepper sauce and fried vegetable rice

This was the "oriental selection" in SQ economy class tonight, the black pepper sauce of which was delightfully spicy and made eating the rice a breeze - so much that I wish I could have had more. The duck salad starter didn't quite agree with me, but I did like the little strawberry cookie, which reminded me a bit of pineapple tarts from Taiwan.

Perhaps more importantly, I finally got one of the 777-300ER's with the upgraded seats. Having laptop power and a 16:9 VOD system in economy class was a world of difference from the old school non-VOD plane that I got on the way up. For a while there, I was starting to think that SQ was dumping all of its planes with older seats on its Beijing route.

Great blog. Do you ever fly Cathay Pacific? How's the Mandarin Oriental in Singapore?

Try booking a Muslim meal 24 hours before departure. You'll be surprised what you'll get compared to the standard bland fare.
