As the title says! I will be buying loads of cup noodles not available in SG.. Wish to know if there's other things I can get.

Appreciate all inputs thanks!

Yubari Melon? Saw boxes of it on the conveyor belt on my return flight recently.

If just eating there, fresh uni. Those exported are preserved in brine solution, so taste not as good.

I also dont know sake ... just buy one with a nice looking bottle that fits the budget

It's not expensive. If not drinkable, sake actually makes a good marinade for beef.

I did ask a sake connoisseur once, and she said the Otokoyama (男山) brand from Hokkaido is reliable. Their brewery is in Asahikawa, free sampling.

are u flying Thai ?

Their check-in service at CTS is very good. We checked-in 2 sealed boxes of groceries in a IKEA bag. At check-in, they sealed the whole IKEA bag in a large plastic bag, then duct-taped it secure. Excellent !

I am going for 10 days in end Nov.

Are you using any data Sim card?

I am also flying Thai. Very good price.

But later found out Scoot has direct flight. Price is also as good.

I think TG will be a more comfortable flight and it's full service, food is good (especially return leg) with 30kg bags. The transit connection times are also good.

Wldnt consider Scoot unless it is considerably cheaper (I doubt it will be with all the extras).
