We stayed in Cebu for a few weeks and during our stay, we had a chance to go to Oslob for the whale sharks, as well as visit the Sumilon Island and the Kawasan Falls. Below are some photos:

Check-in, Desks C1-C6
Fast track was not offered although it immigration and security check went quickly.
Plaza Premium Lounge
Plaza Premium Lounge being used by EVA Air. I also had the chance to visit the Philippine Airlines Mabuhay Lounge (just took photos) which is located opposite the Plaza Premium Lounge and is just as beautiful as the Plaza Premium Lounge 👍
Aircraft, Airbus A330-300
Hello Kitty jet was already 4 years ago when I flew from Taipei to Fukuoka.
Boarding, Gate 15
Business Class Cabin
Immigration cards were also distributed but since I was only transiting in Taipei, I did not need it. The menu card was also presented and around 11am, the flight attendant took my meal order. She confirmed my pre-ordered meal on the internet and so I just ordered the match milk tea and sparkling water for my drinks.
Pushback, Safety Video & Take Off
Around 11:15am, an announcement was made informing us of the delay due to congestion, and that we would remain in ground for 5-10 minutes more. Unfortunately, I couldn´t watch a film (while waiting) since the screen is still just showing the usual EVA Air boarding ads.
I thought the braised beef shank was perfect and is definitely one of the best meals I´ve had on the plane including in first class 👍
Landing in Taipei Taoyuan Airport
At 1:17pm, the flight attendant was on the PA informing us that we would start our descent soon and that the current temperature in Taipei is 27 degrees. Interestingly, I never heard the captain on the PA, or maybe I just missed it.
It has been 4 years since I last flew with EVA Air so I was really excited to take this flight, as they are among the few 5-star airlines according to Skytrax. I thought the crew were fantastic as I was always addressed by my name, and that the refill of bread and drinks was always there. The meal was also fantastic and I was glad I had the braised beef shank as it was one of the best meals I´ve had on a plane. The seat was spacious and comfortable and I love the fact that they offer slippers even on such a short flight. Overall, I definitely enjoyed this flight and would recommend it to everyone 😍
