What I packed in Hand Luggage: 3 hour flight Phuket to Hong Kong

Who:  Me, husband, Daisy (3.8), Sky (1)
Where:  Dragonair Phuket to Hong Kong (3 hours), take off 12.30pm, land 4:45pm

We divided the below between my husband’s black rucksack and my shopper.  I took the stroller to the Gate and then switched the baby to the Ergo baby carrier.
