terrible

Rest day is meant for sleeping or just doing nothing -  at home. But today I spent the whole day waiting for my number to be called.

My passport has expired, so I thought of going to the Immigration Office for a new one. And make a new Mykad while I'm there, coz both the office are just meters away from each other. I went with my youngest brother, after getting our photos from the photographer we quickly headed to Ayer Keroh. I know there would be a lot of people there as it was after 10 am, but there were so many people..they flooded the building and compound.

We went to the Immigration Dept. first. But when we wanted to fill in the forms, we found out that my brother would have to come another time - as he's still under 18 and needed either my mom or dad to be present. It was the second time for him there, that means he needs to make a third trip just to renew his passport.
There were a lot of people waiting but I think it's still better than the Registration Dept. Within an hour I finished handing in the old passport at the counter and paid the fee after waiting. Then I was told to wait an hour. So I went to the Registration Dept. to change my Mykad. I was given the number 1374, when they were serving number 12** at that time. I need to wait behind a really, really long queue.

After waiting for some time (I must be crazy today), I decided to go out for lunch and come back later. Even after one hour, there was still around 50 people before me. So I went to pick up my passport, and continue waiting at the Reg. Dept...and nearly sleep there in front of the crowd :p

Finally after more than two hours (or was it three?) of waiting, it was my turn. And after done with the photo (which the guy did a bad job) and finger-print, I need to wait another hour. So we went out again, this time to Mydin Hypermarket. I was tired with all the waiting, and getting grumpy..thank God for ice-cream. I really enjoyed the cheap but yummy King's ice-cream being sold beside the Jonker Walk kopitiam there. It was really chocolate-y and I forgot all the waiting I did earlier. Okay okay, a bit not all.  

My brother said I eat a lot when I'm not working. Well I do think about food most of the time, and when can I go out and eat all the yummy food other than rest days? Haha

Cahya,
Tuh dia.. sehari suntuk penuh dengan agenda menunggu. :D. Tabek kat Cahya sebab sabor menunggu. Nasib baik time gi lunch tu tak terlepas turn, kalo tidak.. jenuh nak kena datang hari lain pulak.

MyKad memang kena renew ke?

Eh Cahya, kita sama la. Asyik pikir makan je. Haha! Kronik sungguh kan?

kak Aida, Cahya memang takut terlepas turn. dah la manusia ramaiiii. masa pegi collect passport yg dah siap pun anxious sebab takut number kat Mykad cepat..tapi memang tak pun. huhu. penat+bored to death.

parents Cahya yg suruh pegi tukar dulu, tapi baru sekarang pegi. tapi yang tak best tu, the officer said since I didn't change the card when I was 18-25 yrs old..kena bayar denda. dah la takde mood..kena bayar denda lagi.

memang the most 'wonderful' day la semalam tu.

Cahya
Your experience memang very the epic one, haha..

Kita semua at one time or another memang kena alami pengalaman yg 'manis' menunggu nombor kita dipanggil, sigh..

Sabar rasanya sakit dan pahit dan juga manis..
