Singapore Airlines first class on the A380 is called “suites ” this flight was SQ232 from Sydney to Singapore. I have always wanted to fly Singapore Air’s A380 suites but have have never got the chance until now.
The Silver Kris lounge was recently renovated it still has that new feel to it , walking in there is a lounge area with seats / couches, in the middle is the dining area with the buffet plus some tables on the other side is some workstations & then seats by the windows overlooking the airport.

French toast with mixed berries - In addition to the buffet there is a small menu
Dom Pérignon Vintage 2004 - Apon boarding the plane you are greeted by the crew and shown to your suite & offered a pre departure drink
My Suite 1A – Suites are located at the front of the bottom deck of the A380 with a total of 12 suites in the cabin.
The seat itself is really comfy a wide soft leather recliner. On the window side of the seat is some storage compartments and a power outlet, two USB ports ,headphone jack and a video input.
Very spacious more than enough room to stretch out
The suite feels very private the doors are quite high so even when someone is walking buy they cant see inside

Table setting - the table slides out from the side
Menu for the flight - in addition to this there is a wine list , cocktail list, coffe & tea selections
All the food served on the flight was excellent restaurant quality. I don’t know how they make the food taste so fresh its like it was just cooked the meat moist and the greens crispy all presented beautifully on the plate.

Pumpkin velouté with mussels & creme fraiche

I had high expectations for this flight and I was not disappointed. The suite is self is super comfortable as a seat and when converted into a bed , the service from the crew was exceptional, professional whilst being very friendly. Needless to say I really enjoyed this flight it was great start to my holiday next I spent a few days in Singapore before flying onto Tokyo.

I recently spent a few weeks in Japan so I will break my blogging drought with this post. A small collection of pictures from my travels.
Itsukushima Shrine , Miyajima
Takoyaki balls simple batter with octopus pieces inside , such a tasty little snack
Tokyo at night is so cool!!
Okonomiyaki - savory pancake. So basically you eat off the hot plate (but its not hot where the eating position is)
The eating utensil
They look huge when they are being prepared but they get smaller once cooked
Ready to eat
I love the bullet train! Not sure exactly but I have ridden it 10+ times and I still act like a little boy when I see one pull into the station.
They even look good on the inside.

The “kitchen” right in front of you
Gyoza , beer & ramen the perfect late night feed
“choose the hard of the noodle”
Im a big fan of Ramen and Ippudo is right up on my list of favorite places to get it in Sydney. At $16 its certainly not the cheapest in town but considering it is in the Westfeilds food court where a sandwich can cost $14 I don’t think the $16 for a Ramen in a sit down table service place expensive. One thing I like about Ipudo is the ” Kae-dama” so you can another serve of noodles for $2 great for when your really hungry.
Akamaru Shinaji $16 - original Tonkotsu broth with miso paste
Karaka Men $17 - original Tonkotsu broth with special spicy miso & ground pork. This ramen looks much hotter than it really is, I would call it medium.
Steamed bun with braised pork $4 – love these pork buns! They are only small but have so much flavor.
Hakata-style pan-fried dumplings $6
