Hehe..where shall i start?
MAS was a total disappointment... You see, i got a ticket back to Kuala Lumpur, coz i'm studying in Bangi. So, the flight that i had was at 6am. So, i arrived at around 5am, said my goodbyes and left for the terminal. There i sat, and then they called passengers to board, which we all did. I was already planning how i would spend the rest of my day, sleep, play badminton/swim and dinner with friends(since on the 22nd Feb was my 23rd birthday). Anyhow, we boarded the plane, put our hand luggage away and buckled up. I was preparing for my drooling session, got my head comfortable. About 15 minutes later, an announcement came, woke me up.
"We are having some technical problems and we are now having our engineers to take a look at it. It will take 15 to 30 minutes". Everyone didn't really gave much response as they were totally sleepy.
"All passengers are required to disembark from the plane, to change to another plane. We apologize for the inconvenience," they said, so drowsily we went out with our hand luggage.
Once we're back to the terminal, we were told the flight would be delayed to 10am and that breakfast will be provided. So, we claimed our breakfast at KFC, and they gave us Coke and nuggets...
We ate and we waited...
10am came slowly, crawling, dragging its feet but it came anyway. We waited for them to call us for boarding but no announcement was made at all. Then, we saw, it was delayed, retimed to 1pm. Again, we waited. 1pm came, with its legs chained with heavy balls of steel. Again, no announcement was made, only the monitor was kind enough to show us it was again retimed to 2pm. By now, there were a lot of angry people. Angry, hungry and sleepy people. Some had to miss their connect flight, some missed their train...and others, well, just pissed off that they were there from 5am till now.
We waited till 3pm when an officer said that our would be delayed to 7pm...wait...another one officer said 9.30pm. Much confusion was passed around when finally, after angry comments were thrown by impatient people, it was set to 9.25pm. Several passengers asked if they could get refund for their tickets, ad some could. I wanted my taxi fare to be the normal price and inquired about it. Unfortunately "we are not in liaison with the taxi at the airport" the officer said. Damn it! What the? Hell, all they need to do is just charge me normal price (as after 12am, 50% of the fare will be added). Hungry and tired i called home asking my dad to fetch me. Those had no where to go was sent to the nearest hotel(Fourpoints) and i went back home. Did some last minute shopping, tried to sleep and took a bath. I even had dinner at home...
Then, my cousin sent me to the airport this time. Sure enough when we checked the flight, MH2547, it was retimed to 10pm... at this rate, i was thinking "how could i expect this flight to run smoothly after what i've gone through." But anyhow, i went into the terminal, and waited with the rest of the passengers. By now, i had made several acquaintances. There were familiar faces of adults, teens and children. We were called in and i had this feeling "Nah, this wont be it." Sure enough, i was right. We were asked to exit the place due to technical problems. We exited and a man was so angry that he was scolding the officer at the terminal desk. I was behind him and in my heart, i was cheering him with pom poms. Poor guy, he looks like crap.
Then we were asked to change terminal...and we did walk towards the terminal after several hesitant steps. Seriously, some were jut sitting at the chair, skeptical. I thought it was some cruel practical joke. But after a while, we all went there. I made myself comfortable on the floor facing the terminal gateway. I plan to stare and put pressure on them.
Finally, we boarded the plane... and yes, we finally took off for Kuala Lumpur. I was chuckling when a girl gave me a questioning look. I told her "I'm spending my first hours of my birthday on a plane eating airplane food". She smiled, and wished me Happy birthday. I chuckled back and wished her Happy Chinese New Year. And i ate my food...yuck by the way...
I sort of slept throughout the journey and we reached the airport at around 12.45am. So,went to the taxi counter and they charged me rm95.20. Dang, all the money my mom gave me was spent on the taxi fare...(i planned to spend it o other things hehe)
I reached the campus at around 1.45am....
The next morning, went to class and was presented with cupcakes written (Otanjoubi Omedeto Obaasan..) CIs laa.. It was a gift from Nurul and Aine. Thanks girls!! Really love it.. HAHA! BUT OBAA-SAN???!!! Fine, i admit i am old..but not as old as STeve..eh FOSSIL! The whole Tecnology in Edu mates wished me happy birthday, and am really happy
Haha!! Then, Amara, Ka Phin, Wendy, Hua CHien and mua went to Alamanda...and ate at Secret Recipe..I got the steak i was craving for...(but not really how i wanted it)..but chatting with you guys while eating cake and drinking really made my day. We even played truth or dare and those who chose dare had to take a spoon(fork actually) full of Hua Chien's sauce added with tomato and chili sauce and sugar...gosh i wonder how it taste like.
They gave me a card..(shedding tears now) filled with beautiful wishes (except for Hua Chien's) haha! And Amara made it with scraps of papers she salvage from the recycle bin (whaddya expect a cat gets her resource?) Haha! Kidding la.. It was so nice....
Then, went out with Julian, Visha, Aine, Nurul, Ambun, Connie-sensei and G-net, to Alamanda (again) HAha! We ate at Johnny's, a Thai steamboat restaurant. G-net almost ended my life went she hug me and nearly led to my great fall but she manage to save my ass. My life flashes before my eyes.. :D Okay, i was exaggerating.. Nevertheless, being in the company of these crazy bunch of people really made my day twice.... :D
Visha gave me blue teddy bear (thank God it's not pink) which i named Lex. Amaera gave me a frame with mushy mushy words carved upon it (gift fit for a King). Wawa, gave me a teddy bear, and i named it Xander(Thank you!).
That's basically what i did for these two days... i left out several details like Aine was really close to crying when her mp3 cover was almost lost..or that Connie-sensei and G-Net finished a whole box of coco crunch(was it?) but still stuffed in food for my sake. :D am touched~~~~ haha!
Am really grateful for all of you, (you know who you are :)) who made my day the happiest. Thank you so much :D
ps: I haven't had any pictures from the Thai steamboat outing thingy...but will upload once i have my hands on them
ja, till then..~~~~~~~~~~~~~
