Jambi-Pk Baru-KL (This is where we start !)

Posted by Fico , Tuesday, April 21, 2009 10:28 PM

Here we go again, we start with Tiara Otocham (TOP) travel at 19.00 (i thought that would be 7.30, my mom said its 7 fika!) and we went to the TOP travel office. The ride cost us Rp 180.00 per person. We leave jambi at 19.50pm (nearly 8 pm).
Most of time, the person next to me sleeping (how can she sleep when the road is so bumpy?? uugghhh !) hihi.. i wake up like 5-6 time during the trip. We stop 3 times, its much more than i ever did which is one time last time when i went to PK baru for..erhhh.. Chevron test ! hihihi..
11 hours they said to reach PK Baru. We discuss with the driver, several of the passenger also want to catch up some flights to different places like Medan or Jakarta. We agree to pay Rp 15.000 .. maybe at first he meant, 15.000 per each person, but then when we're arrive we just gave him Rp. 15.000 only for both of us.
We arrive at Pekan Baru, Riau airport/Sultan Hasan Kasim II at 5.40 am. There's less people there. Sky still dark, but there's airport sucurity guard checking luggae with x ray's, obviously we're not the first flight this morning. We went to the checking lobby, through the x-ray scanner and rushing to the bathroom, and take shower. To be honest, its a bigger bathroom than in Jambi airport, but i could say, this is moooore dirty than the one in Jambi (a dying cockroach on floor as a proof of the level of cleanliness, and my mean girl status, hehe).
After bath (and groomed our self) we went to Air Asia counter.. and guess what.. they are giving us the seat that we want for FREE CHARGE. As far as i know, Air Asia will give you seat but if you pat for sum of money (Fast Boarding?) but we got it for free ! yay ! thank you to PK Baru Air Asia!!
After boarding we proceed to the airport tax both, we pay Rp 75.000 for international flights, we then went to the second floor for immigration. We had our NPWP card copy, also our passport copy, so we just gave it to the immigration officer and get a stamps on our passport and boarding card.
We went to another x-ray for waiting room, and guess what, they stop us because they thought they "found" something suspicious on Maria's bag (eeeewww !!)
They ask, what is the "tube" inside her bag, she get more confuse because she only brought bottle of water, and that's the only "tube" that she know. And they re-scan her bag again, and ask her to take out her bag, and put everything out. (me.. whaaat???!! i dont even know what is that !) and then they figure it out ! it was the flash light !!!! (uugghhh so much for hiden tubes !).
They apologize and please us to come in and wait for our flight (fiuuuhh !).
Its a big waiting room. They also had canteen and serve breakfast. You could order tea/coffee or bread, noodles or even lontong (wow heavy !). I have a cup of tea while waiting, we do our breakfast and watch the plane landing and take off. I just also find out that we do have military base here also. We could watch fighter planes take off, its very good, i never know before we had airforce base here in Riau. And the planes not look bad either.
After breakfast then we decide to have some of Rupiah exchange to Ringgit. So we go outside back to the first floor near the toilet (arrival door). After changing the ringgit we went to the waiting room again on 2nd floor (we should do this before we went to the waiting room first place.. but we thought the money changer will be any near the immigration or waiting room).
Our flight is on schedule. We depart at 8.45 am i sleep during the flight which is only like 30 minutes !!
We arrive at KLIA-LCC at 10.25 am KL time. And speed up to immigration. There's several lines there (its on 2nd floor). First time i went there they mix up between the arrival and departure immigration. But i think this airport development that time not finished yet. I saw there's more details added, like this immigration lines.
When i went to the immigration lines, they ask if i am a student, i said no, and ask if i ever went to Malaysia before, i said yes, he ask again, do i had my return ticket i said, yes and no, i said i had flight ticket for Phuket, he ask why go there, i smile, vacation. hehehehehe... he ask too many questions... but its his job.
This time we are more "thought" really intimidate by the officers, heheheheheh !
When were taking our luggage my cousin send me sms said she is going to be late to pick us up, because she had an urgent meeting at her office (alittle bit sad thing because i do feel very tired) so we have 3 hours free time at the airport ! and we decide to explore a bit.
We went to Mc D's for lunch and its quite nice. Too bad the wifi is not so strong that i cant catch it with my cellphone (my lovey dopey P1i). But we touring around, playing cards, checking on good guys, cute daddy, weird people.. we really take our time very god ! hihihihih...
My cousin finally pick us up at 1 pm and we drive straight to my uncle house in Selangor. I almost fall asleep on the truck !
