Lovely Krabi 05: Airport Bus That Broke Down

i have so many to talk about

suddenly i didn’t know

which one should come in next

*

and i think it’s easier to

transfer all photos to my laptop

and sort them out

before i start blogging

*

instead of looking around

for photos from my phone

*

okay let’s rewind

i departed on Saturday

got a 10:30 AM bus ticket

to the airport

it takes about 2-3 hours max

*

so it was estimated that

i’ll be reaching around 1 PM

and have some time to

lunch and loiter

before our flight at 4:15 AM

*

but shit happened

the 10:30 AM bus didnt’ come

because the bus broke down

*

so the person in charge

led us to the counter

for a refund and assumed us that

we can catch another 10:30 AM

with another bus operator

*

basically there are only two

which run service between

Melaka and KLIA1/2

and they kind of form agreement

*

company A runs buses on

10:30 AM / 12:30 PM / 2:30 PM

while company B runs buses on

9:30 AM / 11:30 AM / 1:30 PM

and so on

*

but someone came

saying that 10:30 AM

was not available

*

okay fine

you guys can get 11:30 AM

that would be still okay

i guess

*

so we were queuing

at Counter B for 11:30 AM

however while queuing

was told that

the tickets were sold out

*

so the next would be

12:30 PM with company A

*

what the hell

and I decided to just

catch a 11 AM to KL

and transfer to the airport train

KLIA Transit / ERL

*

so i got onto the 11 AM bus

a couple and a solo traveler

from China were following as

they have trust in a local like me

Delime Melaka-KL

*

so we reached TBS

around 1:15 PM

and i was waiting for them

i know i have to run for the train

but feel bad to ditch them

just like that

*

i found out that

the train ticket is quite pricey

having informed them

the solo traveler decided to

just go with bus which is like

so much cheaper

*

and she was not

really in rush as

her flight was at 5

and it was a domestic flight

to Langkawi

*

so i left

with quick pace

by the time i reached

the train station

and checked out the signboard

next arrival was like in 0 minute

*

okay fine there’s no way

i can make it

so i just took my sweet time

at the vending machine

and the couple caught up with me

and i bought three tickets in total

KLIA Airport Transfer ERL Ticket Vending Machine

*

thank goodness for the machine

or i doubt i even have enough cash

to pay for one ticket

and there’s 10% off

*

the next train

would be like in 30 minutes

so i took my own sweet time

i can’t remember when was the last time

i took this but it was like half the price

KLIA Transit

*

Melaka – KLIA by bus =  25 MYR

Melaka – KL by bus = 10 MYR

*

KL Sentral – KLIA by train = 55 MYR

KL Terminal – KLIA by train = 38 MYR

ridiculous right

*

so i just hanged out

talking to the couple

they are from Suzhou

and were also heading to

Langkawi

*

i seriously don’t know

what’s good in Langkawi

because I have never been there

chocolate and alcohol?

*

but i nevertheless

made it to the airport by 2:15 PM

which was like okay

*

grabbed some buns

and a bottle of Coke

and off we go

*
