After returning to KL. Having prepaid the bus when the air ticket was purchased. went to the KL Sentral to get the bus to KL LCCT. Bus ScheduleScenery along the way to Airport
Took as long as the flight to reach the terminal. The drive was long about an hour. This is one reason many locals take the bus to Singapore / vice versa.

The female captain was at the door to see off passengers. As seen in the photo.
Many flights together at Terminal 1. Long queue for immigration for Foreigners / other passports. An Indonesian guy took photo of the queue, he was asked by immigration officer to delete the photo.
Would had to wait atleast 1/2 hr in the foreigners queue to be serviced.There was no one at the Singaporean / PR counter. I immediately headed for that queue. Welcomed by immigration officer, she offered a sweet, asked where I'm coming from, scanned my passport. As i didn't have checked baggage, Was out in 5 mins.
Had lunch.Looking for a hotel, headed towards Crown Plaza.Singapore Terminal 3
Had planned to stay the night at the Crown Plaza as I was travelling next day. The Crown Plaza Hotel being full due to F1 in Singapore. Took MRT to the city, left my bags at the hotel and went to enjoy the outdoors.
