    Heathrow was quite a mad house that evening. Fortunately, there was nobody waiting in line for SQ Business class check-in and I was served immediately.
    Overall, the lounge wasn't very big and it certainly could get very crowded indeed.

    Nice plane model at the stairwell, leading up to the Business Class section.

    By the time I got to the lounge, I was famished. Time was about 8pm and I hadn't had anything to eat since noon. This was what I got for my dinner. Spicy chicken wings and Nasi Lemak.

    Alright, I was rather greedy. So this was a second serving of food. This time spicy chicken wings with bee hoon.

    Condiments for the Nasi Lemak.

    The bar counter in the lounge. The wines and other liquor were kept behind the bar, so you had to ask the servers to help you.

    View of the lounge - not very big.

    Great videos! Thank you! I even felt the wheels shake a bit while slowing down on gear up after your takeoff out of HTW lol. I pay as much attention to detail as you do and as always a window seat. I noticed on the wine list a Portugal port which I suspect is Madeira. Very Very good and sweet like sherry. You might want to try a sip of that on your next flight. Thanks again!

    It went well. Thanks for your patience. Now that the weekend is here, I can start working on updating this post again. :)

    Thanks! You are absolutely right, I didn't try to port. Darn. Another reason to fly SQ Business class again. :)

    A few more pics of the SilverKris Heathrow T3 Lounge:
    There was some potato salad with a very small selection of sandwiches.
    [​IMG]
    Sandwich selection. Didn't look very enticing to me. Well, I am not sandwich type of person.

    This was the wine available in the lounge.

    Another view of the bar counter.

    After a good meal at the Lounge and a couple of drinks, I still had some time, so I decided to take a walk and buy some souvenirs at the transit area of Heathrow Terminal 3. The Terminal was very crowded and the shops and restaurants were all doing a very good business!!

    Table laid out for supper service.
    [​IMG]
    The first course, of Parma Ham and salad. I didn't care very much for this course, though I think I ate up the salad. Had some red wine.
    [​IMG]
    The Cantonese Duck with rice, a 'Book the Cook' selection. The duck was decent, however, I did regret ordering this dish because I had very good duck in a Chinese restaurant in London Chinatown the evening before.
    [​IMG]
    This was the dessert. A cheesecake that was very nice (and filling!). I skipped the cheese. I must make it a point to get that the next time, and ask for Port!
    [​IMG]
    These were the after dinner chocolates. I was so stuffed, I kept them and brought them home.

    After supper, it was time to get some sleep. I didn't sleep for very long, maybe 5-6 hours.
    When I got up, I felt hungry again, and asked for some noodles from the light bites menu.
    [​IMG]
    I decided to try this white wine that was featured in the menu. I soon discovered that it was way too sweet for me!
    [​IMG]
    Picture of the flight screen. Where are we right now? Still some way to get to Singapore.
    [​IMG]
    The King and his men needed some rest. The bed looked way too big for them though!
    [​IMG]
    Ok, time to get some rest.
    [​IMG]
    After I came back from the toilet, I found them here. Hey, aren't you guys supposed to be sleeping?

    It was time for breakfast, served about 2.5 hours before landing. The fruit selection.
    [​IMG]
    I got a cappucino - made to order.
    [​IMG]
    Also got some cereal. It was nice and filling.
    [​IMG]
    This was the asian noodles.
    [​IMG]
    After breakfast, it was time to prepare the cabin for landing.
    Overall, a good flight.
