With my bad habit of always trying to do things last minute,again I couldnt get a cheap and direct flight back to KL. The next best thing was a transit stop flight in Beijing. I grabbed that and instead of flying back to KL I chose Bangkok. I decided to travel Bangkok alone before going back home.
Everything good comes with price and good price comes with nothing.
Can you see what I see ?? Yes,there is no TV, no inflight entertainment!!
Without anything to do, I slept and slept till my eyes refuse to close anymore. I took the initiative to talk to the passenger next to me. I thought I was brave to travel alone. Many would have agree too. But hurrah this...
She is only 10 years old and she is traveling on her on.On top of that she handles boredom far better than me. She basically sit still and not even looking at any magazines there. What makes me sad is she is a Japanese that speak better Chinese than me...aisyhh...
She was very careful when talking to me, a bit passive I should say. Am I that scary ??!!
Trying to open her up a bit, I ordered Chinese beer.
mm...think of it she is still underage, so I double check the alcohol level hoping for miracle.There are 0% alcohol beer in Japan what ??!!
It is not 3,4,5 or 5.7 %. It is >4.0% !! what does it suppose to mean ?? anything from 4 to 100 % ??? Wow, if it is really 100% it might kill so I decided to spare her from danger :P
Finally I reached Beijing, 2 hours late thanks to delay in departure and because of that I had to run around like mouse in Airport to catch my transit flight to Bangkok. When the time was just gonna run out, a generous guy with a vehicle stopped by and offer me a ride. Half-way through, he said 10 reminbi..eee...I thought it was FOC !! Then I said no renminbi, he said US Dollar or Japanese yen also acceptable. As I feel abit tricked, I said I had none of those except MSIa ringgit and credit card. Luckily he doesnt accept both..hahaha and he let out a huge sigh and straight away dropped me off. Ran for my life and giri-giri managed to get in by using staircase. It made me feel getting on like VIP.
Another long journey flight without TV but I was tired from previous flight and all those rushing. This time I planned to sleep. But the one sit next to me is a tour guide and keep on talking to me !! Am I that friendly ??!! I got some peace when finally she is busy dealing with her works.
Jokes aside, I really enjoyed talking to her. Learning something new about China and tips for travel ?!...
Finally I reached Bangkok in the midnite. No more train to city-center and as Im alone taking taxi will cost a bomb. Luckily I had a plan in mind.
To be continue....
