The Idiot Who Missed Her Return Flight.

let me tell you the time when i turned into a brainless, clumsiest and blurest flight purchaser. EVER! it’s so epic that it deserves a special post here. to remind me that once upon a time, i put my brain on my left knee!!!

epic fail #1

i was supposed to go back to miri last Thu night. the last flight from labuan. and assuming the flight departure time would be as usual at 2140hr, so i took my own sweet time before i go to the airport to check-in. i reached the counter at exactly 2100hr, to my horror, the counter has closed!!! so a pointless argument began;

me: i wanna check in to miri.
counter guy: counter is closed. why now only you come? what time is it now?
me: 2105hr. i thought the flight is at 2140hr?
counter guy: that is what you thought!! (in a loud and mocking voice i started to get annoyed) have you check the departure time on the screen.
me: no but please… just let me in…. bla… bla… bla… i have a morning flight to Sg tomorrow… bla…
counter guy: that is tomorrow. today is today. i have sold your seat to the wait list people. (so stern it ticked me off to the core)
me: please… sure you can help me with this…. *pleading*
counter guy: no… that doesnt work on me. (KNS!!! so merciless)
me: hmmmm…. really cant help? just let me in la…. (i annoyed myself at this point for begging and i could feel my temperature rising i could felt the heat oozing out from my pores. FACE PORES!!)
counter guy: ok, u tell me, if i let u in, where are u going to sit? u will still be expelled by the captain.
me: hmmm…. ok thanks. *bitter i almost cried*

feeling really defeated i walked to the bench and took out my ticket. and KNSBBQ!!! the departure time was indeed at 2125hr!! ARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!! i missed my flight!!!!! at this time i can only blame my silly self for not mobile check-in (as usual) and for not double-check on the time during purchasing the ticket.

moral of the story: ALWAYS DOUBLE/ TRIPLE-CHECK YOUR FLIGHT TICKET. DO NOT ASSUME THE NORM. AND ALWAYS CHECK-IN EARLIER / WEB CHECK-IN / MOBILE CHECK-IN.

so i return home, took out my laptop and started to crack my head to find another alternative for cheapest and earliest route to Sg. cos i definitely gonna miss my initial miri-sg flight the next morning T____T cry blood also no use.

to cut the story short, i managed to get a sit to miri the next day. both MAS (my suppose flight) and AA flight to singapore have flew. the next best option was miri-kch-sg. but the problem was flight miri-kch by AA might delay due to bad weather so that will risk i’ll miss the kch-sg flight. arrrghh!!! so i had to WAIT LIST again miri to kl. it was a mess going to and forth between MAS and AA counters. thank goodness i got a sit, it costs me rm839. more expensive than my myy-sg RETURN!! again, cry blood also no use. reached klia, i wasted no time to get the earliest flight to sg which cost me another rm453. and the universe decided to topple everything on me i guess, my flight delayed!!! and that must happened when all of us passengers were already seated comfortably inside the flight. half an hour we had been romped around the runway. another 1.5hr sitting helplessly in the stationary plane. gosh!!! after 3 different flight sectors, 6 hours inside the planes (4 hrs in the air, 2 hrs just sitting, waiting), crossed 4 different airport immigresen counters, i finally reached Sg. around 7pm. that marked a total of 12hours of my whole journey starting from labuan. gosh!!

and you think my stupidity stops there? let’s continue with….

epic fail #2

i guess i never learned from my lesson. and some more dare to to put that ‘Moral Of The Story’ in caps and bold. so the day i returned to Miri, right after landed i decided to check-in early for my flight back to Labuan the next day. little did i know……

me: i wanna check-in for Labuan. tomorrow morning flight, please.

then proudly took out my IC and printed electronic ticket to the counter lady. she typed on the keyboard and frowned at the screen. and then look at me in disbelief.

counter lady: tomorrow? are you sure? the system showed that your flight is today. 5th December. you are suppose to fly to Labuan this morning.

me: WHAT???!!!!! o.O!! Seriously?!!

i looked at my ticket and the date. WTH!!!!!! it was indeed 5th Dec!!! instead of 6th. i was so stunned, speechless and feeling really really stupid. my gosh!!! what a mess!! what was i thinking when i purchase this return ticket? *cry* i just wasted my entire return ticket labuan-miri!! and next morning flight (which i thought i’ll be flying with were fully booked. i had to wait list. AGAIN! sigh~!

when the 1st time i missed the TIME, now 2nd time i missed the DATE!!!! damn, who do this double idiotic act? ONLY ME~!!!!!!

sigh~! i guess i have no choice to just have to admit that I AM THE CLUMSIEST and FORGETFUL (almost senile) GIRL IN THE WORLD!!!

Monday Musings

the room is hot. but i am blowing my nose *mystery* i was hit by another round of evil flu and mild fever last week hence the blockage of idea to blog. oh yes. i heard you. full of excuses. i know. i am recovering well (oh it better be) because i am going for another long trip and leaving tomorrow. wow whee!! *slides down rainbow* oh, Ha Long Bay is in the itinerary, babeh!! 😀 stay tune for the beautiful photos. next year. *i kid…. * so the state of Sarawak has just had its most talked about state election. the hype of the 10th Sarawak State Election last Sat (16/4) was never before seen. i didnt go back to vote though so i played my role just by lobbying people to vote wisely. the result, not pretty. but again nothing happened without the consent of our good Lord. He has every reason for everything that has happened and He has His reason for Baru Bian to win although the party has lost severely. one of the many FB status, my fellow sarawakian friend’s (who is abroad) caught my attention and deserved pondering ‘a leader who has a messy life or a leader who mess with you life?’ so, to each his own i think. *shrugs* i am not a fan in fact i loathed politics but in recent days as i grow older wiser i couldnt help but to chirp in my irritation towards the players. damn those media persons also managed to raised my temperature with their one-sided tone whenever they comment or anchor where they are supposed to be neutral. and with that i decided to end my rant about that topic. so i am officially a sampat who carries three phones up and down where i only have two ears. kns! one of the ‘fruit phone’ really keep me engrossed with my games, Fashion Story and Smurf’s Village. haha!! i am currently reading the girl who kicks the hornet’s nest. the final series of the millenium trilogy. ohya, i have a new assistant who is hardworking, self-initiated and clean. *tiba-tiba* plus, being pretty and good sense of fashion is always a bonus. now i can have lunch partner 😀 *irrelevant* i am still (and i dunno when will this end) playing the catch up games on all my photos. i have been to three places and all i did was sneak peek. wth! and starting tomorrow i’ll start to add to the tonnes of ‘pending for process’ photos. *sigh* why am i so lazy?! T___T talking bout laziness i have neglected my running routine for almost a month now that it’s killing me. huhuhu…. blame it on the weather for 1) being so unpredictable every time after work it will start to if not rain, it drizzle. 2) making me sick! what else?! T___T i promise i’ll hit the park again once i return from this trip. the other day i was craving for bubur kacang (what is bubur kacang in english, again?) it’s one of my favourite dessert and my mum makes the best one. but now that i am away from the comfort of everything home-cooked it strucked me that i never watch or even bother to learn how to cook it from her T___T so sms-ed her (in her midst of queuing to cast her vote during the election day… hehehe…) for help. and it was my week end project! yesterday, i successfully cooked my yummiest bubur kacang without burning the whole kitchen *proud* i will blog a separate post for this one some other time.

i like this photo. it was taken from a moving van from clark airport to manila city of the philippines. i dunno. maybe it’s the clouds. or the sun. or the beautiful country side view. or the fact that the truck was carrying a farm of pigs. or maybe the feeling i had then. it was a wonderful feeling. it was happiness.

Happy Monday, peeps!!

Secret of The Moment

oh wait a minute. *dust off spiderwebs from the blog page* i know i know. it has been a while. but i have reasons to neglect my blog and being the owner of this respective blog i am allowed to appear and disappear as i like. there are so much i wanna update. like. my vision. no. not my vision in life but my eyes. i think they’ve increased in prescription. as i am typing this. i am squinting so hard to look at the words i type. and sometimes it gives me migrain. ohno!! i just got my new sets of contact lenses and now??! huhu T__T then my health. gosh. i have to admit i am growing old. tsk! macam2 penyakit. the most shocking one was two weeks ago when blood was coming together with my urine. but i’ll spare the details of my gross pepe story. ohya, about my opito sea survival course last month that i cannot believe i am still here to get a refresher. wow. i still can’t get myself away from the sea aei. and the new friends i made throughout the training course. been too busy with work that i dont want to talk about it but since i’ve touched the surface. heck. why not? so let me tell you things i hate about office now. PRINTERS!! they sucks!! like donkey balls!! or at least the two at my office currently. i think they conspired to go against me since the last two weeks. out of 5 reports (3 copies each) they only managed to produce one complete report. kns! evil evil machines! but i still have times for facebook. browsing at friends photos. and of course emo statuses after malaysia lose the Thomas Cup. and the funny comments that came after it. one of the funniest status so far is from wendy that goes “haha,very funny,gt 3 ppl come to my salon to cut their hair,1 said wan to cut ‘butterfly’ style,then another one said cut ‘ikan baong’ style,n then the last 1 said wan to cut ‘spider’ style then ‘lion’ a bit(lion mean layer),wakakaka… funny!!!! the funny one is cut ‘IKAN BAONG’ style,hahahahaha” LOL!! then stalking at my many many favourite photographers blogs to get inspired but my lazy bum just refuse to get up and go for a shoot. poor labo sitting at the corner of the closet begging for freedom. time will come dear. but on the bright side. i am saving my shutter count :p *kiam siap* but the that voice behind my serebelum just shouted. ‘without practice how do u think u’ll get better u lazy bum?’ lalalalala…. and there’s a wedding to shoot in three weeks time! *shrieks* but before that i am so excited for next week. next week will mark my very first roadtrip with only one companion. jane. she’ll be arriving friday and we’ll drive to a FUNtastic holidays labuan-kk(4D3N)-lawas-limbang-brunei-miri. and talking bout that i shall now announce that i finally got my new BABYYYYYY!!!! a handsome, dark, black, rugged (almost like labo) baby. and i’ve name her errrm…. ok him Thunder. dont hate :p kns la.. now i have 2 babies to fund i’m gonna eat grass alone at the back of my kitchen from now on T____T and talking about eating grass i am dying to kill the excess kilos by trying to go without rice but failed terribly i almost fainted in the office last week due to gastric. a very bad one since a very long time. i guess i cant live without rice. and later that evening instead of feeding myself i bought these…..

can these cure my gastric?! no. but they sure killed my boredoms 🙂

ok now for the BIG SECRET OF THE MOMENT!!
