My flight to Sibu was delayed from 8:25 pm to 10:00 pm and then to
10:20 pm, just missing being a red eye flight by 1 hour and 41 minutes.
I guess that makes it a pink eye flight. It’s not so bad though, my
friend who brought me to the airport took me back to town for dinner
and I went back to the airport again at about 9 pm, hoping that it
might depart at 9:30 pm.
Alas, it was not meant to be, and we learnt that it was further
delayed by another 20 minutes. I was given a free Temporary Refreshment
Voucher to offset the inconvenience by the continuous delays. I took
them up on the offer even though I already ate, and went to the
admittedly horrendous airport canteen for their terrible food.
This is what the free dinner voucher provided – fried noodles and a
side dish of your choice. I was torn between soggy mixed vegetables and
a few lonely pieces of chicken swimming in curry that time forgot. I
chose the latter and had 100 Plus for the free drink. The flight
arrived in Sibu in about 35 minutes and it was midnight when I got
home. Long day tomorrow, time to hit the sack. Night folks…
