FPMPAM Sarawak Medical Camp 2.5

  2. 2. We left KLIA with 33 pieces of checkin luggage. Mainly boxes of drugs carefully labelled by Garrick and Poh Teng. We all travelled light to help save extra cost of excess luggage, resulting in some wearing one pair of jeans for 7 days. That was duely pointed out The cabin luggage was so full on the flight to Kuching that one piece of cabin luggage got displaced, providing our first “hiccup”. It was later found.
