I'm posting this from the lounge at LCCT waiting for my 7.25pm Airasia flight to Singapore. Seriously, it's been quite a while since I flew to Singapore. Usually I take the four hour plus drive through the second link and straight to Singapore city with the GPS on.
But heck, this morning I thought why not just go to KL sentral get a ticket and fly down. Easy peachy. So that's what I did at 9.30am this morning. Had breakfast with Puteh and then she dropped me down at KL Sentral.
I walked to the Malaysian Airline ticketing office in the building near the entrance of the train to KLIA.
Okay, it has been sometime since I bought a flight ticket to Singapore okay. So, please excuse for saying that I got a shock when the ticket counter told me my economy return ticket to Singapore is RM1,020!!!!
I stood there like a bloody idiot. I travel to Jakarta return costs me RM400-500. I travel to Bangkok about the same cost. On KLM to Jakarta never more than RM600 return.
And then suddenly, I have to pay more than 1 bloody k to Singapore on Malaysian Airlines.
So, I put back my credit card into my wallet, smiled at the Malaysian Airlines staff, thanked him for his troubles and walked off.
I took the train to KLIA and then a bus to LCCT, went to the Airasia ticket counter and bought a ticket for RM580 return. End of story.
Jeez! Remind me to check flight costs again before going to KL Sentral or KLIA!
