My little red book.........

Last sun I went to renew my passport....
It still not dead yet but d expiry date is in Aug.....
I need to travel to china this mth (of course not 包二奶).. Better renew it...
Besides tat my china visa also expired....
So new passport n new china visa.....



Yes... D imigresen dept is open on weekends....
Cheers to d government... At least they heard our voices n think abt d rakyat...
As u know for working ppl like us have to take leave or time out for these type of stuff..
So no need to take leave....


I reached plaza glomac, Kelana Jaya @ 8am n there is a big crowd lining up in front of d counter...
Sien.... Dunno how long I have to wait....
So I drop my wife n she got a number...




In our last visit... We use d kiosk service n it was really fast... That was 5 years ago..
It was really crowded n we decided to use d kiosk service...
For using d kiosk service we had to wait for more than 1 hour....
Coz:
1) one 1 machine is operating... The other was down..
2) have to input one notes at one time... Like those car park autopay...

One thing good is tat... They understand the problems n they station 2 persons to help out...
Eg. Key in the particular, slot in the notes, collect d passport n so on....

We were so happy tat it was finally our turn after so long waited....
But to my surprise that... D lady told me that we got the wrong number...
D number that I got is for d counter services... For new application n others...
D lady ask me to get another number for d kiosk services.....

So I went to the ticket counter n got a number....
But the ticketing guy told me tat I need to go back n queue from d start...
I was so upset ....U gave me a wrong ticket n u ask me to queue again for another hour....
I don't bother n I just go straight to d kiosk machine....
Then the fellow was unhappy that I ignore his instruction n he went to the kiosk person n told them not to entertainment me.....
I just keep silence N I don't want to start a fight with 小人 ...
The lady was kind enuff n let me to process d renewal....
Actually why d guy was so frust .. Is not that I jump queue, steal other ppls ticket n so on..
Be coz of this bad apple it could spoilt d image of the imigresen dept.
Perkhidmatan berkualiti Dan berintegriti....is that so...

D ROTTEN APPLE .. &^*$#$#)*)(#*
After 1 hour I come n collect my passport....
There goes my half Sunday.....
N I feel so tired for not going for my normal jogs......

Overall I m quite satisfy with their services...
At least they r open on weekends....

  4. When will we arrive to the day that we recognize ourselves as living on and sharing ONE planet? When will we do away with passports and try to live happily and peacefully together?

  10. I also just got my passport renewed on Wednesday. I went at 7.30am, I was the first person there. Submit form, process form, pay money, get receipt, collect passport and left, all within in 30mins. Good to be the early bird, or may be my place of imigresen is even better service.
