Last Sunday I had taken a photograph meant for passport renewal. The background has to be white and we need to wear a collar shirt. Today I decided to visit UTC instead of the Jabatan Imigresen near Meru which is further away.
When I reached there, it was almost 1pm. I just had to wait for a short while. After the payment of RM300 for 5 years span, I was asked to collect it at 2.30pm. Since I had so much time in between, I went to the bank to update my kids' passbook. Since my dental clinic was just nearby, I waited for my dentist at 2.15pm. She came in at 2.30pm and I was given the privilege to go in first.
I wanted to have my wisdom tooth extracted but the other dentist was on leave. I was told to come back in April. Never mind about that, I quickly went to collect my passport. This new passport has a photo of me in black and white. And I was given 6 months extra as my old passport actually expires in 8 months time.
On my way back, I dropped by another dental clinic near my place. I wanted to make an appointment. But it's on a first come first served basis. So I had to wait for just 2 people and that made me wait for an hour. When it was my turn, I spent less than 20 min. The extraction cost RM40.
I think I still prefer the one with appointment needed. So convenient and we don't need to waste time.
