I was among the 3 selected bloggers from the Philippines invited to grace the Pyjama Party in Tune Hotels KLIA2 last Saturday, May 31. The celebration for the recent opening of the new Tune Hotels branch is scheduled at 6:00PM and I was provided with an AirAsia Zest flight ticket with a 6:00AM boarding time.
As early as 4:30AM, I arrived at NAIA Terminal 4. While waiting in line at the immigration, I browsed some brochures about AirAsia and learned that aside from Kuala Lumpur, the world’s best low cost airline also flies from Manila to Macau, Shanghai, Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia, and Incheon & Busan in South Korea. They also serve domestic flights like Manila to Kalibo (Boracay), Puerto Princesa (Palawan), Davao, Cebu, Tacloban and Tagbilaran (Bohol).
Needless to say, I was the last passenger to board inside the plane to have my photo taken with another AirAsia plane nearby as the background.
And before I forget, here’s a video on how to self check-in in AirAsia. Self check-in will enable you to avoid the long queues at the airport.

Moving on, more photo ops outside the plane. An airport staff helped me snapped these pictures because my two blogger friends, @supermorgy and @juanderfulpinoy, were already inside the aircraft.
The flight, Z2 948, was operated by an all-Filipino crew. Friendly flight attendant Ace toured us inside the aircraft. He also let me help him in the pre-flight safety demonstration by giving him the oxygen mask and life vest one by one as he inform the passengers how to use these equipments in case of emergency.
The aircraft took off at around 6:30AM. After the seatbelt sign was turned off, flight attendants started to distribute inflight food and beverage.
For my breakfast, I chose Uncle Chin’s Chicken Rice with strawberry yogurt for dessert. A certified bestseller, the meal is dubbed as an Asian favorite. The fluppy seasoned rice served with roast chicken accompanied by Uncle Chin’s special secret chilli, ginger and garlic sauce was delectable!
Aside from Uncle Chin’s Chicken Rice, other available inflight meals include the Nasi Goreng, Nasi Kuning Manado, Roast Chicken with Blackpepper Sauce, Chicken Mayo Apple Sandwich, and more!
Here’s a tip: When you prebook your meals online prior to your flight, you’ll get priority service, more choices and 20% discount!
That’s me with a female flight attendant wearing the distinct red uniform. Male flight attendants wear black.
In less than four hours, touchdown KLIA2!
And with just a few hops away from the immigration, we easily spotted the swanky Tune Hotel KLIA2, our home for the night where the fun-filled ‘pyjama party’ happened.
As for my next update, I will blog about my stay in Tune Hotel KLIA2.
