Have been on a walk around of the food floor and saw a sumo size tonkatsu, 200 grams! Jus's dinner.
Have checked our luggage through but it was nearly going straight through to Sydney. The lady at the top of the line looked at our itinerary and saw that our final destination is home, not Sg, and said "through to Sydney". I had to politely correct her otherwise we'd have no clothes.
