Ten years ago in Kuala Lumpur, when you had to fly to a domestic destination, you traveled 30 minutes toSubang Airport, where you left from the 1954-styleterminal where you had to go out on the tarmac in the rain and climb up a staircase to get on the plane. Then, the government built a multi-billion ringgit global hub terminal 75 minutes away from KL withworld-class everything. Then, they built a high-speed rail connection so it takes only 30 minutes to get there. Despite this, the global hub terminal remains a deserted ghost-town with far more gate capacity than flights. AirAsia then starts up. Everyone can fly and the global hub terminal begins to come to life. So the government decides to build AirAsia far, far away terminal at the other end of the airport, one that replicates the old 1954-style terminal. It doesn'tconnect to the high-speed train. Then, almost all domestic flights are shifted over to AirAsia. So now you have to take a 75 minute bus ride to the far, far away terminal and walk out in the rain and climb the stairs just like back in 1954, while the global hub terminal is once again deserted. Oh, and if you need to transfer from an overseas flight to a domestic flight, you have to take a half-an-hour bus ride from the global hub terminal to the far, far away terminal. Is this back to the future or back to the past? Or is it just 'terminal stupidity'?

My brother has to come back to Ipoh to help my father to do the "business". My father has to work on his own for this Tuesday and Wednesday. There is no way my brother can leave Ipoh for such a long period.
My sis-in-law is from Thailand, in case you don't know. That means she's going back to "hometown" to visit her family. She only goes back to Thailand once a year, that's why she's staying in Bangkok for such a long period.
I'm kinda regret for not following them to Bangkok this time. Indeed it's a very good chance to go there. It's because, firstly, I could save on the airplane ticket as I booked the tickets for my brother when Air Asia was giving out 2million tickets for free end of last year. I should have booked the tickets for myself as well. All I need to pay was the fuel charges and the airport tax which added up together is around RM150 for return tickets. Good deal, huh? Secondly, if I were to go with them, I could save on the accommodation as well. That's because my sis-in-law has a sister whom is staying in Bangkok. Well, at least I can tumpang the place as well if I were there. Thirdly, since my sis-in-law is there, it's alot more easier to bargain when I shop. Still remember the time when I went to Hatyai with her along. I didn't have to bargain, she did all the talking and ended up I bought all cheap stuff and ate all the authentic Thai food. Never mind, guess there will be more chances to come. Guess my brother will be going back...hmmm, I'm using "going back" instead of "going" to describe my brother's visitation to Thailand now. Anyway, I guess my brother will be going back to Thailand at least once a year. I missed the "flight" this time, guess I can catch another "flight" next year. Save more $$$ and everywhere in the world is just a flight away. M-O-N-E-Y is very I-M-P-O-R-T-A-N-T.
