Thank you again, De, for suggesting the Four Seasons last year as a special place to be with a special someone. Our first visit last fall was so fine, we decided to conclude our honeymoon with a sentimental stay at the hotel. (The majority of our honeymoon bliss was spent in Bangkok in some rather dear suites at the Oriental and Peninsula.)
Our few days in SIN consisted primarily of, well, staying at the hotel. (Must confess I did bring ample quantities of a certain --- performance-enhancing --- drug, as well as some lovely La Perla lingerie for her, and my all-time favourite Barry White CD. It all tied-in with my brilliantly conceived and executed, Master Plan, to keep her confined to our little "suite" den of iniquity and far away from those luxury shops she so loves.)
Following our tender times, we headed back to Changi for our respective SQ flights. Which brings us to that carrier of carriers, Singapore Airlines. (Now, Me^, I know you are partial to Cathay Pacific, but please indulge me for a moment. By the way, I love your avatar! And many thanks for your wonderfully informative posts.) Both of us fly SQ a fair amount for work, so after a "few" calls we were able to apply miles for free first class seats on SQ for all of our segments. Should any of you desire the same, would suggest trying for mid-week flights in the "off-season." Some very special segments out of Singapore are SQ2 (SIN-HKG), SQ12 (SIN-NRT) and for flights to Bangkok, SQ68, 974, 996. (Flying out of SIN in First or Raffles gives you access to those sublime Silver Kris Lounges.) And once on board, well, you are in the presence of angels (and their Pierre Balmain-designed sarong kebayas).
Speaking of SQ996, that is my current monthly flight back to BKK. I normally fly out of SIN the first Friday evening of the month (after a few hours/days of work), so if you ever find yourselves near the SKL around 6-7 pm...
I always enjoy visiting this fine forum; such a great group ... de, me, check, jade... so many other informative, thoughtful members. I would contribute more, but my SIN knowledge remains largely limited to airlines, lounges, Changi, meeting rooms, and the Four Seasons.
Thanks again De; I hope you realize you have put me one step closer to debtor's prison ... (but to date, it has been a sweet ride). Sweet and smooth (SQ) rides to all of you...
