My Conversation with an Immigration Officer

Place : Immigration Office Putrajaya Malaysia

Immigration Officer = IO
Me = Me

Me : Good Morning !
IO : Salamat Pagi

Me : When I move around in Malaysia, can I carry a photo-copy of my passport? I worry about losing my orignal passport.
IO : When you get arrested, police would want to see the original passport.

Me : Ahhh ! Emmm ! Ohhh ! Thank you.

A 30 Cent Dilemma!

Yesterday I went to Sogo Mall in downtown Kuala Lumpur. Had to park my car there and go to an office in Pertama Complex building next to it. After I finished the office work, came back to Sogo and felt the need to go to the washroom. Most Malls in KL now don’t charge to use the washroom but Sogo still charges 30 cents per visit. There was no attendant when I went. So I did my business and as no one was there to accept or was it demand the 30 cents due on me, I left for home. Today I went back to Sogo for some work and left the 30 cents on an unmanned table.

It was just a matter of 30 cents but it bothered me. I felt like a cheat. Was I reading too much into it? Would it have mattered to anyone? Was I being too sensitive? Should I have in fact been happy to have saved 30 cents?

Is there any merit to the saying “Nothing is good or bad, only thinking makes it so”!
