@liuzhou wow... that doesn't look bad at all, especially for such a short flight!

Yes. We basically flew up to cruising height, had lunch and started to descend.

Had a very eventful trip from Washington DC to Moscow, not a happy occasion, cancelled flight, re booked through London, taking Aeroflot from London to Moscow, over one hour to get from terminal 2 to terminal 4 in Heathrow, seat 39K on an empty plane.  A surprisingly good meal in the very back of the plane and a surprisingly nice flight attendants.  No smiles.  But they were kind.

Flew back to China from Vietnam with Sichuan Airlines today. It's a 2 hour flight. Left Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) at 2 pm.

 

Served this once we were at cruising height.

Again, not very pretty, but it was surprisingly tasty. Rice, greenery and a very tasty, well flavoured spicy lump of flaky fish.

Of course, being Sichuan Airlines, they had to pop on some chilli.

 

Bread roll with Anchor butter from NZ, yoghurt from Vietnam and a weird yellow custardy dessert which was lemon flavoured but about 2000 times too sweet for my taste.

 

Washed down.with a beer.

 

Not bad. Not great. Acceptable. Especially the fish.

Yes. I'm back in China, but won't be home until tomorrow evening, then can sort out the hundreds of photos I took. Not all food of course, but many are. Hopefully, by the weekend.

and when I wasn't paying attention the attendant dropped this piece of corn on top of my rice dish.

Actually that corn looks kinda menacing. Maybe it's just the photo angle--
