Lost And Found

I lost my Calvin Klein umbrella in Taiwan.

Technically, it was the airline’s fault.

Raft3r is pissed.

I almost lost my passport in Malaysia.

We got to our hotel almost 4 in the morning. I was tired as hell.

Since we would only be staying in Kuala Lumpur for a day, my travel companions and I decided to just pay for one twin sharing room.

We were a group of five. I was handpicked to just sneak in after my companions register.

As soon as I stepped inside the hotel room, the phone rang. It was Front Desk.

Front Desk: “Is Mr. Raft3r there?”

Female Travel Companion (in a very unconvincing voice): “No.”

Front Desk: “Are you sure Mr. Raft3r from the Philippines is not there?”

Female Travel Companion: “Wait.” (Handed over the phone to male travel companion.)

Male Companion (in a quite nervous tone): “Raft3r is not here. He only accompanied us to this hotel and left right after we checked in. Why?”

Front Desk: “Oh. He left his Philippine passport in the lobby.”

We all heaved a sigh of relief.

On both occasions, I flew Cebu Pacific.

Sometimes being cheap is not that practical.

As God as my witness, I will never fly budget again.

Raft3r said...

bulakbolero.sg, Hindi kasi ako pala check-in. Lalo na kung CebuPac lang. Ito kasi payong lang. Walang kasama. Kaya paniguradong mawawala. Hehe

Wendy said...

LOL. So payong lang ang chinek in mo pagpuntang Taiwan? Parang check in counter ng supermarket a. BTW, your closing sentence is a testament to your wealth. Hehehe.

Raft3r said...

wendy, Pwede din sign of arrogance. Hehe

Wendy said...

Haha, sign of anger na lang. You were angry kasi when you wrote this post. I wouldn't say arrogance because I associate the word arrogance with a-holes.

Raft3r said...

msbolin said...

why not try airphil express? we do the publicity for airphil express and they have some promising travel services like web check in, seat selector, etal.

problem is they only fly mla-singapore and cebu-singapore for the international flight. ehehe.

so better siguro yung sinabi mo na "never fly budget again". mutan mo na mga sinabi ko kanina. ihihi.

Raft3r said...

msbolin, Nyahaha. Bigyan mo ko discount and I'll reconsider. Hehe
