CONCLUSION

I was actually one of the first guests in the lounge since I wanted to make sure I could take lots of pictures. Although not as nice as the Qantas and Cathay Pacific Lounges which both have much modern furnitures, I thought this lounge was still nice. I really loved the food selection on the buffet which caters most to Japanese guests. One thing I noticed though was most of the Japanese arriving would go to the buffet, prepare their food and place it on a tray and head directly to one of those work stations where they would turn on their own laptops and start working. This is probably one proof thay they are one of the most "workaholic" people in the world. Overall, a nice lounge.
