Okay! so it is almost time for me to back to Kota Kinabalu town as it is almost time for me to return the rented car.. saw this beautiful mosque on my way back so decided to give it a visit..
After visiting mosque I also managed to visit a Buddist temple.. hehe..
Managed to return the rented car after visited the temple.. have my lunch in the town.. talked to random people who sit in the same table as me during lunch time.. he was impressed that i travelled alone here.. haha.. actually i am not that brave.. i just wanted to experience it.. after lunch walked my way to Suria Sabah for a cup of Starbucks before heading to the airport.. planned to take the bus to airport at 4:00 pm so I have at least 2 hours to sit in Starbucks.. hmm..
managed to get on the bus to Kota Kinabalu Internaltional Airport (KKIA) at 4:00 something.. saw an alone old uncle was in the bus too.. the bus stop.. and suddenly he shouted in English and asked "are we at Airport already?" nobody answer.. so decided to tell the uncle that no we are still in the bus terminal.. bus only departing at 4:30pm.. the uncle did not say anything after that..
i was observing the uncle on the journey.. then only i noticed that he is blind.. surprisingly, he is travelling alone to the airport with public transport! I notified the uncle when we reached KKIA, offer to help him to get down the bus but he refused and saying he can handle himself.. but when both of us get from the bus he is asking me to lead him to Air Asia check-in terminal.. so without thinking much i guided him to the terminal.. helped him with the check in.. only noticed that the is from Hong Kong and his flight is two days later.. told him.. and he replied he knew in cantonese.. he just wanted to get the check in done today and print the boarding pass.. he is going back to KK town after checking in.. i was stunned.. i mean.. he purposely come this far just to check in a flight which departs after two days.. and most importantly he is blind and all alone..
so after checking in and print out the boarding pass.. lead him to the bus terminal back to town.. the next bus to KK town is only available in 5:00 pm and my flight is 5:15pm.. so no choice i have to leave him alone.. guided him to public seat and notify the airport staffs to guide him when the bus was here.. chatted with for a while.. knowing he is coming to Kota Kinabalu for some conference.. saying nobody is free to help him here so he came here all alone.. i was truly surprised and impressed by him.. it is 4:45 pm now and i need to enter the gate already.. told him about that and the arrangement with the airport staff.. he smile and thanks me for that.. but this is the only thing i can do for that uncle..
pass through the boarding gate and wait for my flight.. flight was slightly delay.. spot this private jet.. i wonder who it belongs to..
finally boarded the plane.. and the sky is getting darker..
Finally, we are departing back to Kuala Lumpur..
