It is actually rather quiet and peaceful. The ground air hostesses are very polite and well trained.
The coffee outlets/restaurants are all tended by a group of multi-racial service help. One waiter is in fact from Tibet. And another from Sri Lanka.
There was nothing specifically ARAB in the food served.I was planning on having some couscous or Kebabs. Sandwiches and salads are the usual offering.
Even the name of the restaurant is Sterling. Perhaps that was why I did not feel terribly lost in the airport while waiting for my connecting flight.
A cup of coffee was RM18.....according to the exchange. We would give 20 ringgits and we would get 2 Riyal back. I am confused by this exchange. But any way we had to drink.
Our almost RM20 cup of coffee.
I am a big fan of TV Aljazeera. Here I am standing near the cash counter of the Sports Aljazeera ...lovely souvenirs to be bought. The lady did not want to be photograph.
It is better to leave Malaysia with some American dollars or the actual Riyal. Just enough to spend on drinks and buy a few packets of dates and nuts for friends in London if you wish to.
Waiting for the plane were many very well dressed Indians wearing very colourful saris.
The PA announced in both Arabic and English. So we did not actually get very lost.
