How not to be an international superstar, Step #1: MISS YOUR FLIGHT!!!

How not to be an international superstar, Step #1: MISS YOUR FLIGHT!!!

Quote of moral support from travel sponsor (and my Obi Wan jedi master of travel advice) Mark Cathcart: “I’m just your travel sponsor, it’s not your world that’s disappearing over the horizon, just your flight! There will be others…”

What a nightmare!! After a great overnight stay in Malaysia (more details and pics to come), I totally screwed up by waiting at the wrong gate for another flight by Cathay Pacific bound from KL to Hong Kong.

Had to spend an extra night in KL at the airport budget hotel and then this morning got on a flight to Hong Kong. But it was delayed by 45mins due to the weather, so I missed the connection to SF–the layover was only 55mins.

BUT since it was Cathay Pacific’s fault I missed the connection…they put me up in the swanky airport hotel for “day use” while securing me a boarding pass for the midnight flight I’m currently waiting in line to board. Instead of putting me on standby. I got access to the sweet hotel gym and thus a great treadmill run and recovery spin…and best part…free $50 buffet dinner!

I had really yummy Peking duck, seaweed salad, tried kangaroo meat (like beef) and sampled 5 different desserts :D

I even got my first Hong Kong stamps in my passport because the airport hotel is outside immigration…ha!

bon voyage!!
