[Flight Review] Starlux-ury: JX731 Taipei (TPE) -Singapore (SIN) Business (A350-900)

Grabbed from official site

Mustering as much energy as I could to peel myself away from the Galactic Lounge, I bounded off to my gate in anticipation of the highlight of my trip. This flight was also supposed to be the A330neo but the airline later decided to put the A350 on this route instead – yay to doors in business class!

[Hotel Review] Starlux-ury: Hilton Taipei Sinban

With the inaugural flight out of the way, it was time to make my way to my home for the next 3 days! This stay ended up with more hiccups than I anticipated though but I survived.

[Trip Report] Starlux-ury

Grabbed from official site

Starlux (website) – the newish Taiwanese airline receiving rave reviews even in coach.

And honestly, its looks really good on pics. And really, the lightbulb moment came when then I found what I consider a decent enough pricing which will allow me to try Economy Class from Singapore, and their A350 Business Class back from Taipei which means experiencing the GALATIC (yes, it’s meant to be in caps) Lounge at Taoyuan Airport. YAY.

This is shaping up to be a year of random trips after all.

[Hotel Review] The Ritz Carlton, Jakarta, Pacific Place

Grabbed from official site

This trip happened due to my friend’s mileage run which was the perfect excuse to have another holiday. Yay.

Knowing our sole intention is to chill and not really wanting to mess with the infamous Jakarta traffic, we then decided that this spot is the best option we have to allow us to simply chillax. After all, it’s not everyday you come across a Ritz where all guests get club access – time for us to find out if this is a good thing!

[Hotel Review] Capri by Fraser China Square

Grabbed from official site

This stay is so postponed that I am kind of glad that I am finally checking this off.

The story is that during COVID era, I found a great rate which was eligible for their Best Rate Guarantee (BRG) which was honored and all ready to go. Until they closed to be a Stay Home Notice (SHN) facility. Then they re-opened after some time but they closed The Den (their interpretation of an Executive Lounge) which was what I wanted to experience for my stay. So I opted to reschedule only after The Den is re-opened (and kudos to the property for accommodating this allowance). Now, I am ready to stay after 1.5years postponement!

[Hotel Review] Pullman Singapore Orchard

What an anticipated property this is!

I was looking forward to this stay because I was able to secure a Stay Plus slot with a small top up, plus I would still have my Accor Platinum status at the point of my stay which would hopefully elevate the experience. Excited to see what the former Park Hotel Orchard has become under the Accor group.
