I stopped to catch my breath as I arrived at the departure gate. Judging from the severity of my lateness, I had expected the plane to depart without me. Much to my surprise, though, passengers were not even invited to board the plane yet. Thank heavens for Malaysia boleh!

Hence I stood rooted to the spot for a few minutes, gasping for air. When there was enough air in my lungs, I walked towards the metal detector. It was where passengers were supposed to start queuing as soon as the announcement to board the plane came on.

Soon enough, the cabin crew made an announcement for all passengers of the flight to board the plane.

Then, along came this kiasu Malay man. He placed himself right in front of me, probably afraid that I may take the seat he wanted so badly and cause him to feel sore about it for the rest of his sad, sorry and miserable life.

For your information, AisAsia flights are based on free seating - first come first serve basis. Then, he kept calling out to his friend to join him on his shameful quest. His friend, Din, apparently refused to do so and continued to be seated on the bench.

As always, elderly and children (along with their families) are given priority to board the plane first. The kiasu Malay man kept inching forward as the priority queue subsided. He then said to Din, “Orang yang book kat Internet tak boleh naik dulu. Sabar ya.”

In plain English: Those who made flight reservations via the Internet are given second priority. Be patient.

What an idiot. I almost choked to death on my own saliva upon hearing that.
