The End of My e-Passport Saga

I’m happy to report that I finally received my new passport two days ago! And although my photo looks like a mugshot of a hardened criminal or an escapee from Shutter Island, at least now I can breathe a sigh of relief! Finally, the KL trip next week is set.

A word of caution, by the way… Although I paid for an “express” 10-day processing, my passport was not released until Day 13 due to a ‘machine breakdown at the DFA’. So just to be on the safe side, add a couple of days to DFA’s 10-day promise because you’ll never know what’s going to happen next.
