Back in Kuching

I’ve been back in Kuching for a few days now hence the lack of posts. Have been catching up with friends and futsal. Went to Sarikei on Friday and came back on Saturday. Just returned from Santubong mountain yesterday. Pictures and videos will be posted up soon.

Flight back was pretty eventful. As usual, I took a standby ticket because it’s way cheaper (RM97 return). But being a standby ticket, it means I have to wait for empty seats on the flight. But there are only 8 flights a day so it’s quite impossible that during festive season that you’ll have more than 50 empty seats as flights are almost always overbooked.

So we went for the jump seat again. We applied for the 1005 flight but I didn’t manage to get a seat. And it happened so that I met a captain who was flying to Kuching on the 2pm flight. And he offered us seats if we couldn’t get the 1005 flight. So at 2pm, I boarded his flight and here I am back in Kuching.
