12.10 pm – Lunch was served.

The chicken rice is one of the only nicest and edible meal in AirAsia’s menu. Others like the briyani and Pak Nassir’s nasi lemak may look nice but is crap and bullshit.

12.40 pm – Well, hello KK!

Proceeded towards the domestic arrival hall.

Actually, if you are from West Malaysia, you’d still have to go through the same entrance as the international passengers.

Compulsory immigration checks.

For West Malaysians entering Sabah / Sarawak, the identification card is enough.

After that, you’ll get this of paper which is called a social pass. I lost this on the last day and almost missed my flight!
