Just passing through…

You will never be able to guess where this is, with all that greenery and even a nice little pool with flowing water…

It is actually at the KLIA (Kuala Lumpur International Airport) and unlike before, inside the domestic departure lounge these days, they have placed a lot of chairs for transit passengers to sit while waiting for their connecting flights…

We arrived before noon from Penang and our flight back to Sibu was at 7.30 p.m. so we chose to park ourselves at some obscure corner where we could sit with a certain amount of privacy and also enjoy the soothing view of nature outside while waiting.

My daughter said she was still full from the breakfast that we had at the airport in Penang, so I settled down comfortably across one of the three-seaters and had a nap. I must have been very tired after the week-long holiday as my daughter said that I was snoring so very loudly. Luckily there wasn’t anybody else around that part of the airport or else it would be kind of embarrassing, don’t you think? LOL!!!

I woke up at around 2.00 p.m. and we decided to go and grab something to eat. I chose a nice table with a good view…

…while my missus went to get the food and drinks.

My daughter and I had the nasi lemak with chicken rendang

…which was pretty good – much better than what they serve for breakfast at this hotel for RM13.50.

My missus had the mee mamak with sotong

…which was very nice too. I do not know exactly how much she paid but she said it was somewhere in the region of RM10.00 each.

After having had our fill, we went back to our corner…and I went back to sleep again. Gee! That was really great and for the first time ever, I reached home late that night and was not feeling in the least, tired.

When I woke up at around 4 something, I went back to the food section to the Burger King outlet there. They had something new on their menu – the premium angus steakhouse…

…and I had to give it a try.

It wasn’t cheap though – RM12.90 a la carte…which would total up to over RM13.50 with the 5% service tax. I opted for the set – RM16.90…and RM17.75 with the added tax and besides the burger…

…I also got a drink and some french fries.

The three of us shared all that (though it was my daughter who ate most of the burger)…

…and frankly, I must say that it was such a disappointment. I would much sooner go for the double cheese burger in Sibu for RM16.90 which in my honest opinion, would be heaps better and worth the money even though it is quite pricey.

Let us just say that should I be passing  through that way again, that is one thing that I definitely will NOT have…
