While I’m all for “Malaysian timing” and am perpetually “on the way” to brunch with friends, punctuality is something that I observe to a tee whenever I’m travelling. In fact, I would rather overcompensate for time during my journey abroad.

If the flight departs at 7am, I would already be at the airport by 3am. The last transfer back to the hotel is at 8pm? No problem, I’ll be among the first in line for the shuttle.
