    Changi versus KL

    Your thoughts.

    Are they enforcing "Arrival Screening" in KL?
    They are in Chiangi.
    Serious unrest among passengers.
    Poor little Singaporean police (security) trying to placate irate transit passengers.
    All a bit over the top IMHO

    Your thoughts.

    Got it back in bits.

    The only positive point is that the plump young security person was covered in Royal Blue ink.

    What bugs me is it's all duplication.
    You're checked on to the flight a number of times and then Singapore rips you to bits when you land.

    There really needs to be some cooperation between these bozos.

    Chiang Rai did me this morning for having 2 cigarette lighters!

    Had a couple of recent trips to KL with Air Asia. Immigration at KL was a breeze. If you want to be seriously and royally screwed, try Mumbai.

    I've transitted quite a few times in Mumbai and Delhi over the last couple of years.

    It is indeed a total pain in the arse.

    Not just the repetition but the stupidity of how they 'organise' it and dismal understaffing.

    It's not just a matter of having to accept it as a modern day inevitability...if it's an inevitability and you perform the same operation thousands of times a day then get it uniform and fucking logically organised so people go through in a flow...not backwards, sideways and fuck knows where.

    Bastards all need proper colonisation. Teach them how to do things civilly.

    Virtually the only place in the region that we did not colonise officially, and look how that turned out. I blame the bloody French.

    Civilising missions never go out of vogue.

    So, to get back on point, do they do "arrival screening" at KL?

    Just passport check, stand on the red line photo and fingerprints on the way in and out. Short queues and quick processing. A 100 times better than Swampy.

    On the way out, they remove all cans of Guiness from your bags, hands and bunghole. They do this in sight of a bar, where you can restock.

    I understand the view that my cheap cans might have been tampered with, and that they should be taken from me within sight of a bar willing to replenish my depleted stocks at thrice the price.



    Never took the clothes i was wearing.

    Why?


    Because they can?


    Because they can can?
