In a blink of an eye, I found myself back at the airport. After a smooth check-in at the business class counter, my BFF and I went straight away to the 75-seater Tabua Club Lounge. The airline website describes it as a "Fijian Oasis", though that's certainly an overstatement. Let's take a look at what the was offered that evening.
The spread of the buffet wasn't huge, but it did cater to different palates. What I enjoyed the most was the tender chicken kebab with its truly spicy, creamy dressing. The fried vermicelli, done Chinese style, was quite flavourful, but it was a tad dry. The other two items - potato salad and potato cake - were passable.
Cupcake & Bread
I felt that the cupcake was tad too hard in terms of texture, but the bread was enjoyably fluffy.
The colourful fruits were really fresh and juicy. I ate lots of them to keep myself hydrated in the stuffy lounge where the air-conditioning wasn't strong.
Orange Juice & Fiji Water
The orange juice was leaning more towards the sour side. Free flow Fiji water, anyone?
Pika's advice: Economy class passengers can enter the lounge by paying FJD 75.00 (~S$48.85). The lounge was pretty crowded that evening, but at least I could make use of the free Wi-Fi service, even though it was a bit slow.
