What Happened In The Past 9 Hours?

Morning at my home

The usual routine of waking up early, packing my stuff and then a shower. After that, a modest nasi himpit and kuah kacang breakfast with tea. Helping here and there for couple of hours, and then wasting the hours off watching movies, tv series and playing games. My dad's driving me to the airport at 10 am.

The ride to airport

Nothing much spoken between my dad, my brother and myself. Just the usual ranting along the journey. The weather was nice tough, thanks to the heavy rain last night. It took us about an hour and a half to reach Sibu airport which was under renovation and expansion.

At the airport

Checked in immediately with only one hand-held luggage, then off to the loo before heading for the immigration counters. Before that, my dad gave me lectures on getting married, helping my other two brothers who's currently out of job, my other two siblings who will soon join them if they couldn't find any job, my mum's getting a retirement in June this year, prayer prayer prayer, and last but not least the usual advice on "not leaving the family apart". After that, off to the gate for departure

Mid air (somewhere between Sarawak and Peninsular Malaysia)

Lunch box was so-so, tomyam fish, white rice, vegetables and Kit Kat. Nothing much to do in the flight as well. Both my neighbors are heavy talkers (to their friends, not to me) so I don't have the leisure of sleeping or even having a nap.

Approach (somewhere near KLIA)

The weather turns bad, cloudy and turbulence. I though I was gonna die today, the next passenger was looking at me once in a while with that "please send my farewell to my mother" look, grabbing the arm rest in one hand and the other one bracing the seat in front. Its a harrowing 15-20 minutes of ride. Up and down, up and down.


There's a lot of people today, mostly people leaving for Umrah I think. Withdraw some money, bought TIME and MAC magazines, Cadbury chocolate bars and Kit Kat. And now having my so called lunch cum afternoon tea at Jonker Walk (my favorite) with kaya and butter toast, glass teh tarik and half boiled egg
