back from UK

So the rocket came home... I mean Papa brought the rocket home.

I'm not sure who or what Joseph is more happy to see.

On the downside, we found the bag broken. The zipper lock is damaged, misaligned. It can't be locked anymore.

The handle is broken. Edwin found it broken while it was still on the baggage claim conveyor belt.

The expendable compartment zip is missing the zipper pull.

Either Emirates or KLIA had better compensate us for the bag. It has travelled all the way to Hawaii via Tokyo and also to Melbourne with no problems.
Emirates gave Edwin a 9-hour transit (from 6pm to 3am) in Dubai on his return flight. Thank God for his wonderful friends who picked him up and took him out for dinner and drove him around.
He visited the Burj Al-Arab...(I know..the photo is bad)...
The Palm (the famous manmade palm-shaped island), The Atlantis and other spots. Unfortunately the camera battery died.
Cars are cheaper in Dubai than they are in Australia. You could buy a proton with 1-month's salary....imagine that!

    So, was anything missing from the bag?

  2. nothing missing. we suspect it was an attempted 'break-in' - something KLIA is infamous for.

  3. If your hubby had lodged a report with KLIA, they will normally repair it. I've had numerous incidents with damaged bags, and thankfully each time, they repaired for me. Once the damage was beyond repair, and I was given a new bag.
