When I get Stupid...I get it all out

I was in KLIA last night ready to board my flight to Dubai. I was exhausted from the hectic day sorting final matters with Inland Revenue Board, Wisma Putra, UAE Embassy and Immigration. I came home late but luckily my lovely wife helped packed my bags. I was frustrated with my Ubuntu computer cannot connect with my new Celcom usb modem. As a result I can only check my emails using my handphone.

I had a feeling that I wasn't ready to fly last night. But it was just a feeling and went ahead to check in for my flight.

I wasn't ready

Then...a problem. I was alerted by the MAS officer that my passport validity was less than 6 months. By Immigration law I must renew my passport first. My knee shook a bit. I showed them my Dubai working visa and finally they checked me in. I should have renewed my passport when I was in immigration office before. What a stupid I was!

Adrin wasn't in good mood

Checked in done. I felt relieved.

My flight was at 2359 and boarding time was 2329. I looked at my watch and it was 10.55pm. 'Still got time', I thought. So I went to talk to my family and friends. I thank them all for coming.
Later the clock has showed 11.40pm but still I didnt make a move to board. Why ?...because for some reason I mistaken my flight to be at 12.59 a.m. So still got time right? What a stupid I was !

So at 11.45pm I slowly walked to immigration counter for boarding. As expected, my passport was declined by the autogate. It took me 5 minutes to explain.

Then suddenly I heard my name being called to board. I thought why so early? So I embarked the aerotrain to gate C1. I almost fell to my knees when a MAS lady told me "Sir, your aeroplane took off already ! what happened to you??". Only at that point in time I realised I had mistaken 2359 to be 12.59. What a stupid I was !

Today I have received my new ticket and renewed my passport. Luckily I only need to pay penalty of RM350 for the new ticket. My flight will be tonight at 11.59pm. SO I MUST BOARD AT 11.00PM !

I just cannot forget my wife first response to me about all these. She just whispered to me ..PALOIII..in a lovely tone (means STUPID in Melanau).

What an experience !...So anybody want to send me off AGAIN tonight?...Wahahahahahaha...!

"PALOI !"

Along,

Aku asyik dok teringat kat kau je 2 -3 hari ni. Ingat nak ajak teh tarik, sembang2 pasal prospek kat Dubai. Tapi pasal sebok sebab sebelum raya aku asyik mintak postponement lepas raya, aku tangguh dulu.

Hari ni aku tergerak nak ke blog kau, aku tengok kau dah berlepas. Nak buat macam mana...

Anyway, aku harap kau sukses kat sana. Kalau balik call aku. Aku rasa jumpa dekat2 ngan rumah kita lagi baik (kalau kau still kat Klang Gate).

Wassalam
Abdullah Abdul Rahman

PALOI!! Hahahaha..

Bro, you are not alone. Aku pun camtu gak bro. 2003 aku nak balik kuching, gua datang KLIA nak pi check-in. Konon nak balik for good la ke Sarawak. Ramai betul memember yang hantor. Flight 5.30am tu!! So check-in seawal 4am.

Rombongan member siap mata bengkak sebab tak tido malam nak hantar aku tu... belakang... awek check-in counter cakap kat aku:-

"Sir, your flight is tomorrow. Not today"

Betul la bro, nak gelak ade, sedih atas ke"paloi"an aku pun ada. Memember semua dok sumpah seranah aku pun ada siap gelak tergoleng-goleng kat KLIA macam kartun pun ada.

Ale-ale, second attempt hantar aku besoknye... dah tak semeriah hari sebelum.. sebab semua perasaan dah kasi keluar masa hantar aku pagi sebelumnye.

Aku rasa bro, kite ada masalah yang serupa!
