Flying Days

“The doors are closing. This aero train is departing”. Does this ring any bell in you?


This is one of the likes I enjoy traveling. While everyone is still tight in bed, I’ve arrived here at the KLIA at 5.10 a.m being among the travelers. Everytime I stepped out the taxi, I would feel a sense of exhilaration. Walking into the airport, it’s as if everyone here has not known it’s supposed to be bedtime as they seem to busily walk around lugging their loads.


Without any delay, I would directly check in and go through all the immigration procedures. Surprisingly, lately I haven’t got the dreaded molesting I used to have whenever I passed by the custom. I still don’t apprehend why while all my things have been on the conveyor, whatever metallic but still the scan made an alarm. Nothing’s changed since, and I used to think something on my ears, my wrist or my shoes(my pockets are always emptied) gave me away. What the heck? However, there goes, who cares when there are no longer molesting to endure.

I’m not sure if I’m too early being here but I simply like chilling out here at KLIA especially at one of the cafes. It’s not always one can be here at KLIA unless you’re flying though from the airport mag, I understand that they’re trying to change that mindset. They’re trying to promote the airport as a place to dine and shop and carry out corporate functions. Are you falling for it while you can do it easily at your city. I’m not sure, it’s up to you to decide. For example the tall Cappuccino I have with me costs me RM 11. Regulars will now this is a mark up price. Non-regulars do too as it doesn’t just apply to Starbucks but McD and many other food outlets here are selling at mark up prices. Nevertheless, it’s not always you could have multilingual aero train announcement ringing in your head every 5 minutes while you surf away at your favourite café enjoying a hot Cappuccino in the cool hours of the morning. On the other side of the glass to my right, I see lights glowing from the stalled planes..


Now, what’s wrong with the KLIA-internet connection? I just can’t log into the Wifi…

Hi Akira! Was really nice to see you drop by my blog! Haven't seen you around for a while now. I see that you're still into your traveling. That's great! I wish I could, too.
If only I had the time! ;)

Hi there Fitness Diva,

Yeap, I miss catching up at your blog as well to read up on you and your passion in fitness. Yeap, I am still travelling once a month to Bangkok. It's job related though but I'm enjoying it. Well, I'm sure staying put in The State gives as much fun!
