So there i stood like a little lost kitten at the airport, thinking what in the world am i doing to myself when i can be sleeping comfortably at home. So much for the thrills of travelling huh? But then, i asked myself.. would i have this experience if i have not come? Probably never, and it's quite an adventure i had on that flight. I dont think i mentioned this on the previous blog but the plane that finally came after 10hours.. it flew for like 1 hour and then it goes cuckoo.. as in "Final Destination" kinda cuckoo.. I thought i was gonna die.
We had to return to KL and waited for another plane. I think the Captain on board said there was something wrong but i wasnt paying so much attention, i was thinking how am i gonna survive if we crashed in the middle of the South China Seas ( i cant swim :S ).
First thing he said was, we got two options.. lol. We could either stay here and wait till 6am till the train start or get a taxi to Beijing. It was already 2am, and i thought we could sit and just wait till 6am.. I needed to SIT DOWN.. but Jonathan insisted on taking a taxi. I think he saw how distressed i looked =) or maybe cuz he was tired too. I cant believe he waited for me!
We went out and there's a line of taxis waiting for passengers.
And i thought that was the end of it.. but NO the saga continues.. After sitting in the non-moving taxi for about 15mins, No2 came and asked us to get out from the taxi.
Oh well, i'm tired.. my mind is shutting off.. In the end, we got on a taxi with the help of a local girl. She shared the fare as her house was on the way. About 30mins after dropping off the girl, the No2 stopped the car by the highway and said, he could only drive us until here.. what?? Oh god.. is this a habit for taxi drivers here? to say OUT!!! OUT!!! OUT!!?? customer service? i would say zero..
With broken Mandarin, i tried to reason with him that we were not from China and we did not know how to get to our hostel from there.
At this point, nothing surprises me anymore.. Sleep came sooner than i thought.. I had no time to see if the bed suits me or not.
When u r dead tired like that, u couldnt care less.. U Just ZZzzzzz zzz...
