Drama at KLIA2

The minutes hand on my watch showed an hour before departure time. I was on edge. Waiting for almost more than an hour for my other three travelmates to arrive... tapi batang hidung pun tak nampak! 

45 minutes before boarding, (I was already in Gate L2, ready to board), I tried contacting them via our messenger group on my ipod... one claims to be STILL DRIVING to the airport, another on the KLIA express and fourth person already in the area but his printed flight tickets were with the guy who was STILL DRIVING. (Emphasizing the words in BOLD letters to indicate my annoyance. haha)

Can you see the dilemma and stress that I was in?

I've planned everything from the purchasing of tickets (recommending the time and prices which they'll buy themselves), the destination, car rental with driver and hotels. Each person had to give me RM150 to cover all the hotel and transportation costs except ferry transport and entrance fees.

And suddenly I was facing this sh*t of a possibility that they might not be on the plane with me to Medan and I'll be alone with the driver... along with RM450 of my travel-mates' money. It wasn't entirely a terrible thought though. Hahaha.

Seated in the plane, my mind kept wondering what happened to them. Did they make it? Did they beg their way into the plane?

Were they even HERE at the airport yet? At this point, I didn't bother to check my iPod for new updates from the group. Whatever will be will be. In local terms... "ah lantaklahhhh!!"

Then suddenly.............
....minutes before the stewardess in red closed the door, in walked down the aisle were my travel-mates, one by one. All with a smug face.


I didn't know whether to be thankful or scold them for giving me a near heart-attack. But alas... the trip become an extraordinary one. :)

Miraculously, we survived a second trip together. This time to Medan. 
Funny that in my previous blogpost on our trip to China, some of us didn't want to travel with each other any-more. Guess, that didn't keep us from having a second trip together... and perhaps a third one too (Turkey jomm!) :P

Happy travelling peeps!! 

ps: Padang posts coming up next. Sorry for the delay. Hikss!
