Would you rather - TG First vs SQ Suites

I'm currently booked on the following:
GUM to NRT in UA Business (777-200 lie flat)
HND to BKK in TG First (747 redeye)
12 hr layover (daytime in the Royal Orchid Lounge)
BKK to SYD in TG First (747 redeye)
SYD to ZQN in NZ Economy

But this itinerary just showed up:
GUM to HKG in UA Economy
10 hr overnight layover
HKG to SIN in SQ Business (777-200 angled flat)
8 hr layover (in the Private Room)
SIN to ALK in SQ Suites
AKL to ZQN in NZ Economy

I've never flown international first class before and I'm really excited either way. I don't mind being in the air at all as long as I'm pampered, so I like the idea of two long haul TG First flights (so long as they don't get swapped for an A350). I don't mind getting from NRT to HND, I have the time and I've done it before.

I am a little concerned with having an overnight layover in HKG but that would also mean I could meet my traveling companion in AKL and with any luck, the NZ agents could put us on the same flight to ZQN.

Both itineraries are rare. I't rare to find two long haul TG First flights on a single award ticket originating from GUM and it's rare to find a SQ Suites award ticket on any route/day, much less the one I want to travel on. If I really want to fly TG first again, I could easily find a award space, but the Singapore flight is a real unicorn that I likely won't have the opportunity to fly again.

What are your thoughts?
