Borneo Break: A Pleasant Surprise at the Airport

Chin Chi drove me to Penang International Airport in Bayan Lepas early the next morning.I boarded a plane to Kuala Lumpur at around seven plus and had reached there around eight plus and since my flight to Miri was at around three in the afternoon, I had about seven hours to kill. It would be quite a difficult thing to do and I thought of picking up some reading materials from the bookstore at the airport when I suddenly felt a tap on my shoulder. It was Chin Heng and his gang of friends. They were to board a plane to Phuket, Thailand at twelve and well, their presence help liven up my wait for my plane to Borneo! We had a marvelous time chatting and thanks Chin Heng, for buying me coffee!

My god, is it so simple to buy a ticket? Yes, maybe I don't know the reality and it's simple here too. I fly too rarely and buy tickets about a half a year before the flight.

It's easy and cheap too nowadays, with the internet and with companies like AirAsia which sometimes offer zero fare tickets but of course, you'll have to pay airport tax and other things. Sometimes you get a cheap ticket to a place but when you return home, you'll have to buy a normal priced ticket.
