My partner has surprised me with Suites tickets back to Singapore and are therefore able to use the First Class lounge at the airport.
At first look it is empty, just one or two other passengers probably on the same flight. In terms of ambiance there is none. No music, just the gentle humming of the refrigeration unit holding the Hagen Daaz icecream.
We sit at a table and are offered an A La Carte menu. I go for the seafood in cream sauce and skip the buffet knowing the food on board will be a once-in-a-decade experience. We also order a glass each of Verve Cliques to help wash it down.
And a sneaky dessert…..
