off we go

We started our journey immediately after work. Our flight’s ETD was at 8:45 pm so Eila suggested that we should take the staff shuttle from Subang Airport to KLIA directly after work. It was raining cats and dogs that evening. Took our luggage out of our cars and went to the waiting area. Boarded the bus at 6:15 pm, hoping that we could reach KLIA on time despite of the rain and rush hour traffic.


My drenched suitcase. Remember the white hat from Cape Town?


The shuttle bus that would take us to KLIA.


The journey begins!

It was my first time using the staff shuttle. Though many of my colleagues do it - either to commute daily, attend a meeting or catch a flight - I never did. Perhaps because I’m staying in KL, it’s always more convenient to go to KLIA from home.

We reached the airport slightly after 7 pm. Went straight to the check-in counter. My ticket was a standby ticket (as usual). Eila’s ticket was a confirmed one. Fortunately we managed to get both boarding passes issued immediately as there were quite a number of empty seats.


In the aerotrain. Meet Eila, my buddy for this trip.

We went through customs check, headed to surau for solat and stopped by Malaysian Recipe to have something to eat. I didn’t have lunch (my last meal was nasi lemak during breakfast) so I was incredibly hungry. We ate till it was 10 minutes before departure time and dashed to the gate. Made it into the aircraft just in time!

Seats upright...

Belts buckled...

Off we flew to...


...MALDIVES!

aida,
best! the beach is superb. plenty of photos taken, just that i'm too bz to upload. will try to find the time k!

dyanna,
that was the plan! maldives will be gone in some 80-90 years or so (i think?), so go there real soon!

tini,
gambar2 akan menyusul. agak bz skrg, will upload more when i find the time :-)

lela,
totally agree with you, nothing much but the beaches are amazing! owh i pun sama, hari2 dok tepi pantai, tepek sunblock banyak2 pun still ada tan line jugak. makan was definitely easy, and the wide variety of curries made it even easier (nampak sgt suka mamak food).
omg u r going to CPT! awesome! don't miss bo-kaap, table mountain and cape point!
