This morning I drove to Shah Alam. And I did something foolish. I took a route that was jam packed with traffic (Federal Highway), when I could've taken an easier route. So, I was trapped in the jam for quite some time. But it was okay, since the radio was on and I kept on thinking or yesterday's Grammy Awards. OutKast won a few awards and I'm so happy for them. Also, I'm glad that "Clocks," Coldplay won record of the year. I can't wait to buy OutKast's album (expect me to buy the cetak rompak version lah. Ori version too damn expensive, ma!).

Anyways, the ride to Shah Alam wasn't too difficult. For some weird reason, I didn't get myself lost (I've probably only been there, like only 5 times in my lifetime). When I arrived at Kompleks PKNS, it was about 8.15 in the morning.

The Jabatan Imigresen at Kompleks PKNS was rather quiet. In fact, I hardly saw any long queues.

When I went to the counter to hand in my form and documents, the guy who was servicing me was really courteous (in fact, everybody there were nice to me). I gave him my Birth Certificate. And then, he gave me back my Birth Certificate and told me that he didn't need it.

"Are you sure?" I asked for a confirmation. He nodded politely.

All of the sudden I got mad. Not at him lah, but at the incident that happened to me last week. I've brought all the documents needed last week to Pusat Bandar Damansara, but the lady who served me, demanded that I brought along my Birth Certificate.

My parents drove all the way from JB to KL to hand me my Birth Certificate for nothing. Like, please bear in mind that they are not exactly young and it cost money and time to drive to KL (although it was bro who drove up here with his new Honda City).

I feel duped and cheated. I could've done my passport last week. My parents could've stayed at home instead of troubling themselves to hand me my Birth Certificate.

My passport will be ready this Thursday.
