Leaving Malaysia, going into Thailand

This was my first time leaving my homeland going into other people's place. Yes, after 24 years of life, the journey begun at 4.00AM from home heading towards Butterworth where the van we catered will fetch 8 of us into Hatyai, Songkhla, Thailand. Surprisingly, the route from my house to Inderawasih was shorter than usual, which took only 15 min.

The van drove around 2 1/2 hours from Butterworth to Bukit Kayu Hitam, the border of Malaysia-Thailand. I was accompanied by Sam and Dean Winchester in Ipod touch all the way. There was a long queue of busses and vans (about 1KM queue) all waiting to cross the border.
I think anyone passing through the immigration of Malaysia will agree with me, they suck big time.

  1. There was hardly any working toilet available. When we were there, the male toilet wasn't working. We had to bring our urine all the way to deposit at Thailand. Seem like excretes are not welcome in this country. 
  2. The officers in charge of controlling the crowds were not at all courteous. We didn't know the procedure as many of us were first timer leaving the country. There was not sign or direction at all. And to make things worse, the "officers" were showing their best service by shouting at us. I guess this is the way the government is treating the tax payers. And this is the way to promote tourism. And I have to deduce that those policy makers do not go on holiday. All they do is stroke their fat ass at home after corrupted enough. Anyways, this is 1Malaysia I guess...Well done!

Read the notice carefully. "Any person who fall to comply..." can be comprehended as "anyone who comply while falling...." or "anyone who falls when comply..." will be prosecuted! I think the board is there for some time and there's no one competent enough to notice the mistake in the department. Or maybe it's a joke to lighten up the visitors? lol. Anyways, leaving Malaysia was pretty "delightful"!

Stay tune for the next shall be about Thailand more than Malaysia.

Flying is way too expensive for me dude. I sure hope I can afford more comfortable and friendlier travel soon.
