Great to know that, thanks.

I actually had no luck with baileys for the past 3 months! Did PEK a few times and SYD. No baileys at all despite listed on the menu

Bailey's is not a very popular drink by en-large by the masses..but if they are advertising it, they should technically offer it.

No alcohol at all on the menu from NRT-BKI recently. Still, they did have beer, wine, vodka & rum available... I asked for Baileys, no luck.

I find the wine they offer on board (I am not a wine expert by any means) very dry..cheap maybe?

Just flew HKG-KUL-HKG, with a choice of two reds both ways (and a choice of two whites for that matter, but I didn't go for either). Both the reds were decent; they seem to have a preference for fuller-bodied reds which makes sense given the menu choices. The Rhone went well with both the chicken satay as well as the surprisingly tasty lamb briyani.

Indeed, I fly the route quite often in J and they always served wines and alcohol. That is even on the morning flights (depart HKG at 8:45 or KUL at 9:15). Either there is a separate drink menu or there is not. But they always have wines available.
The wine quality is quite decent, and better than on CX. Two reds and two whites (sometimes only one), and champagne. I drink red. Last week I had a very nice Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois 2009 (Chateau d"arche) and a Guigal Crozes Hermitage. On the return leg, the Crozes Hermitage was replaced by a nice Shiraz 2012 from McLaren Vale.

I am also surprised by some comments on the MH Regional lounge in KUL (HKG flights usually depart/arrive in H gates, so no need for train). It is a nice lounge, good service, good food and wines at the bar (alcohols are not displaid anymore at the bar but available on request).

The MH Regional is good. The food quality and choices has improved (based on my last 2 visits in late August). It is comfortable and has all the basics you would expect from a business class lounge. Some people just cannot be pleased though.

Love it. I did clean out a 75ml spray suntan lotion container for similar use. However it still smelled after multiple washes. Hadn't thought about mouthwash.

I have similar Scope bottles i've used but it took a long time to get the scent of mouthwash out.

There's one bottle I've carried for awhile filled with vermouth in case i desire a martini late at night somewhere.

Slightly off topic, flew MH BKI-KUL and LBU-KUL twice this week and last week and the food variation does not appear to be on...almost the same things being served week in/week out.
