The Bucket List: T2 Lounge Dublin International

I was flying out of Dublin to head to Paris, the last city of this very trip. Dublin Airport is fairly modern and new, especially in Terminal 2. It was a short taxi ride from the hotel and Aer Lingus is amazing, in fact, anything after Ryan Air first class. I will share more about the flight in detail in the next post. Dublin Airport have two contract lounge, both accessible via Priority Pass. There is one in each terminal and practically enough they are just simply named T1 Lounge and T2 Lounge. At least there are still good coverage for all of us. They are the only contract lounges in Dublin Airport.

Penang Mattress Run: Plaza Premium Lounge Penang International Airport

Plaza Premium Lounge are known for their standards in the contract lounge world. They are constantly better than their counterparts and a symbol for quality. They can be said as the industry leader in the lounge aspect and there are a couple of famed ones such as their lounge in Heathrow as well as Vancouver which I have heard lots of praise about. They also have the super premium lounges where they can rival airlines operated first class lounge known as the Plaza Premium First. I was flying back from Penang International Airport. There is only 1 contract lounge in the airport and it is the Plaza Premium Lounge. There is one in both the international terminal as well as the domestic terminal. I was in the International one. The lounge is open from 5am to 11pm daily, so that timing should be rather fitting for most people that is passing through. I was there in the evening around 8pm ahead of my flight to Singapore.

Penang Mattress Run: Dnata Lounge Changi Airport Terminal 1

While I have been to tons or most of the Priority Pass lounges in Singapore Changi Airport this past few years. Singapore is a galore of Priority Pass lounge, across the 4 terminal and Jewel, we have 11 lounge and 1 restaurant! You could definitely do a 12 round lounge hopping if you have the mood for it. I realised that the Dnata Lounge in Terminal 1 is missing from my list. My go to lounge in Terminal 1 is usually the Plaza Premium since the food is pretty good, this time around, I decide to give the Dnata a try and I could review it as well. I came from the TGM restaurant in Terminal 2 but since my flight was departing from Terminal 1 I decide to come here and wait for my flight. Dnata lounge is located one level up from the main terminal. It is located just beside the new Qantas First Class lounge which is definitely on my radar!

Penang Mattress Run: TGM Priority Pass Restaurant Changi Airport Terminal 2

Welcome to another brand new trip series of mine! Penang Mattress Run! I finally decide to check off another bucketlist of mine, especially in South East Asia. Penang, a city that I have wanted to head to for ages, especially after watching the drama that was filmed in Penang. Travelling never stops for Seeing The World In Steps! Fresh off Europe and even a trip to KL with my besties, I am constantly complexed by my need to travel. Seeing that I had time on my hand as well as needing to clock some nights to renew my status for Hilton. There comes about this trip. Furthermore tickets were rather affordable and there is a huge promo for Hilton. I will share more on it when I get to the hotel review next! First up. TGM! A restaurant under Priority Pass! Now, is this a lounge or a restaurant? I am sure that everyone is very familiar with Priority Pass but this restaurant thing is rather “new”. Priority Pass takes in some restaurant where members get a credit to spend on food items in places when lounge options are hard to come by. They are usually stateside, although surprising there is one in my home airport, Singapore Changi Airport. I went about to try it during this trip of mine. TGM is said as an Japanese Korean cuisine restaurant

The Bucket List: Upper Deck Lounge Glasgow

Dublin was my next destination after 2 nights in Glasgow. Located off the shore of cointentinal UK, the only way is by air to get to Dublin. Time for some Guinness I guess! I was at the airport super early, more than 3 hours in advance for my very first Ryan Air flight and the last one as well. I will share more on the disastrous experience on Ryan Air in the next post. To sum it up, that almost took up most of my time and together with the long security lines at Glasgow Airport I barely had 20 mins in the lounge, it is going to be a rather short review. This just makes me appreciate how amazing train travels are in Europe and how easy it is. Back to the lounge! The only Priority Pass or contract lounge offering in Glasgow Airport is the Upper Deck Lounge, and it is a crowded one. Certainly it couldn’t cope with the amount of passenger in the Airport.

JED’S In KL: Changi Lounge at Jewel

On the way back from KL, I got the opportunity to stop by Jewel and decided to pay a visit to one of Singapore latest offering this year, the Changi Lounge at Jewel! Jewel have been the pride and talking point for the whole of 2019 so do check them out if you have not heard of it! I have to say that I am constantly amazed and impressed by this place every time I visit. What is different is that this Changi Lounge is operated by Changi Airport itself and is located in the public area so technically it is less convenient for most travellers. It does still have its purpose since Jewel offers early check in so it does allows passengers to rest up and take a shower as well. Furthermore they are also targeting air cruise customers. I had an opportunity to check it out when it first open months ago and the decor was impressive. Thankful, this time around I get to experience it fully!

The Bucket List: Krisflyer Gold Lounge Changi Airport Terminal 2

Continuing on my lounge hopping. I went next door to check out the Krisflyer Gold Lounge in T2. In addition to the usual Silverkris lounge operated by Singapore Airlines that you can find worldwide, they also operate the Krisflyer Gold Lounge in Singapore. This is for crowd control and accessible by Krisflyer Elite Gold Members travelling in Economy Class as well as Star Alliance Gold Members. Although for Star Alliance members, you can use the Silverkris Lounge as well which is much better. It is going to be a rather short review since I just pop in for a quick look.
