Anyway I was just trying my luck today. It's 2:45pm after I collected MyKad. There are less than 10 people in the room and queue number 1114. I got my number, 1116! Now you know what I mean hidden ;)

All in all,  it took 15 minutes to process my application and make payment. After that I head to Alamanda shopping mall which is 2km away to get some essentials. Come back by 4:30pm, my passport is ready. Siok!
