HK Airport Security

Sorry for being missing for so long. Apparently the internet in Memphis didn't quite agree with my blog for some reason.

Anyway, here it is.

Well, since the security has tighten up at the airports, I got there earlier than usual only to be greeted by quite a number of people there already. Luckily since I was upgraded to Business Class, I have my own check-in counter instead of having to join the queue.

Unfortunately, when I got the boarding pass, I realised that I kena the dreaded "SSSS", which essentially means I will kena extra checking and screening. Haiz..... I look like terrorist meh? How come always kena one?

Security has really tightened as all the US-bound flights were separated from the rest of the boarding gates by assigning all of them to one corner of the airport where, they conduct a second security screening. Oh well, like I said, better the hassle than the horror.

muahahaha.. Ay, must be 'cause of your messy hair and veiny arms. The officers were jealous, thus make you go thru the extra screening.
Or it could be 'cause female officers wanna look at you for a longer period of time. So nevermind la. Provide them a source of messy hair and veiny arms as entertainment la. :D

You're a terrorist? Show the stupid TSA ang moh monkeys you eat pork chops. I hate the stupid, useless security measures because they make my air travel a pain in the you know where. The Memphis airport is one ugly airport. Oh, put the stinky St. Louis airport on the list too.

OLLie: Well, those that I saw at the Narita airport not bad leh.... hur hur hur...

Everton: Like I said, better the hassle than the horror but I certainly would appreciate if some of these TSA people stop treating people with a condescending manner and start respecting.

As for lousy airports? Add LAX to the list too.

Kelly: Here's the thing. All my US flights departs at 8:30am in the morning which means I have to check-in at 6:30am. 

Since I am based in Ch1na, there is no way, I can get to the HK airport before 6:30am. As such, I usually come over to HK the night before and stay at the airport hotel.
