Blogging from Hilton KL

I bought my own flight ticket back to KL and this is my another step to adulthood. Woohoo...

Anyway, I had to take the KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airline) train to get myself out of the airport. As I reach the central interchange I met up with the after-work crowd again. I couldn't find my way back from there because the Taxi booth lady told me that I have to wait for an hour before she can get me a cab. So I decided to find something to eat, and as usual, McDonald's is the first thing that comes into my head. I stayed in McD eating, day-dreaming, and then went back to the Taxi booth after an hour. The lady wasn't there anymore but she left a note at the screen "Sorry for the inconvenience, but due to heavy traffic jam, we are unable to provide any taxi service for another 2 hours".

...Another 2 hours...Another 2 hours...Another 2 hours...

Forget about taxi. I called my uncle and he was at KLCC (Kuala Lumpur Convention Center) watching some symphony orchestra with my grandmother, and asked me to take a cab back. What the hell. I stood at the side of wall, thinking how to get myself home. A lot of people passed by me and gave ma a pathetic look. Well, I think they are just as poor as me. Everyone is stuck in the central because there was no taxi.

So I called my aunt, she said she's working til midnight unless I don't mind wait til midnight. So here I am... in the Hilton Hotel (which is attached to the central interchange) waiting for my aunt. This coffee lounge is not bad eh? At least I can find a peace of mind out of the crowd in central. Well, I might as well consider staying here for a night since my laguage is here. Thank God for the internet, and thank my dad for the laptop, at least I will not be bored till my aunt is here.

(Total time for me to get home is 11 hours. I could have fly to Boston within that duration)

Malaysian public transport is indeed very sucky, especially wehn it involves KLIA in any way.

jigs, thanks. thank God that I'm home. i've traveled on a plane by myself since i was 5 but this is the first time i bought my own ticket. it's really cool to travel by yourself and observe people in the airport.

rav'n, i agree with you, and i think everybody thinks the same. there is no 'especially'. all the public transport sucks.
