Despite having a late night yesterday doing last minute shopping at the shopping mall and only hitting the sack way past midnight, I managed to jump out of bed at 4:45 a.m. today.
Alycia and Sherilyn’s flight to Hong Kong was at 10:30 a.m. today. As it’s their first time traveling alone without any accompanying adult, we had to be at the airport at least 2 hours before departure time. Everything went smoothly and we reached the airport at 8:30 a.m.
While the hubs parked his car, I took the luggage bags for cling wrapping. Then did the check-in.
Looking for counter H for Cathay Dragon:
The girls received a special ‘Travel Assistance Request’ pass for airport staff to assist them until they reached the departure gate. I requested for this service via our ticketing agent who is based in Ipoh. I was told by the agent that the request may not be updated at the airport system and this was what happened this morning. Upon showing the check-in staff the confirmation from our ticketing agent, the request was only keyed into the system.
Within an hour, the airport assistant came to bring Alycia and Sherilyn to the departure gate.
We had breakfast at PappaRich before sending the girls off:
My ‘precious baby’ will turn 14 in 2 days. She always gets to travel overseas on her birthday! The char koay teow at this PappaRich outlet is super delish. And that’s one of the reasons why we have to pay much more at this outlet than at other outlets, I guess.
Seated in front of us was Datuk Jimmy Choo, world renowned shoe-maker. And this paparazzi in me just had to furtively snap a picture of him 😁
Saying good-bye with big hugs to my two big babies. They don’t seem to miss me much though 😥
Other than a 30-minute flight delay, everything went very smoothly for Alycia and Sherilyn today, praise God. I’m very sure the two sisters will have a swell time traveling and bonding together, though I know my audacious and mischievous middle child (she’s got her dad’s DNA for sure) will annoy her po-faced and serious sister to no end. She’s already Whatsapp-ed me a video of her sister sleeping on the MRT and I’ve chided her for being so evil.
