Today's Errands

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.

  1. Good! You have gotten many things done on the same day. Is there any reason you want to remove one of your wisdom tooth?

  5. Lots of things done in a day, good! I also fully utilize my day if I am on leave, so usually I will plan what to do, or what I need to do, then I apply leave. Wisdom tooth extraction? Like Reana, I will only wait until I can't tahan the pain only I go to the dentist, else, I will prefer to just wait for it to "rot".. Wait, "rot"? Yucky, hehe..

  10. My dentist here even with appointment sometimes still needs to wait a hour as the person inside maybe having dental surgery or something.

  12. Nowadays, renewing a passport is very convenience and fast.

    I won't dare to have my tooth extracted unless it cause problems (swollen, can't bite, etc). I'm too scare to visit a dentist.

  13. What a coincidence. I also went to renew my passport during the CNY holidays but it was packed like sardines in KL outlets. I thought everyone were on holidays but I was wrong. They all thought the same and went during the week long CNY holidays. My colleague told me that it was almost fast and empty during normal working weeks.

    You were so smart and could even visit dentists! Wakakakaka
