Well, I don't think you need to carry any vouchers. Most of these pre booked trips are all e-vouchers anyways.
Even the recent JBL pre paid trip to Pattaya, no paperwork was needed.

Frankly it doesnt matter at all lol.
A competition was organised by Amex at a mall (where we have a store) for merchants and their clients. Basically if you bought X amount worth of stuff, you got lucky draw coupons. If the customer won something, the merchant would win the same thing. The Prize was 2 free tickets to Singapore.

One of our clients won. So did JBL. And Sam takes all the free stuff (because he can)

Of course only the TDS and taxes had to be paid by us on the free ticket (so much for free), but all of that amounted to MUCH MUCH less than the regular price than everyones paid.

At my personal request, a big effort was made by the necessary parties and they changed the Singapore ticket to Kuala Lumpur. A Big thanks to The American Express Bank and Confluence Integrated services from New Delhi.

Unfortunately we are in no position to change anything. So it doesnt matter if the flight is going via Delhi or New York.. And tickets for the 6th early morning are sold out. So Normally_crazy and I are going on the 5th and are gonna party and shop with the ticket money we had set aside.

muhahahahahahahahaha! Muhahahahahahahaha!

I'm arriving at KL on 6th noon. Yes, qualifying will be on by then.
Where can I meet you all? Is it possible to give the details of the transfers from the airport, Sepang, etc.. Is it possible to come to the qualifications after I reach there?

How many are staying back on 9th and leaving on the 10th? I would be doing that.

Thanks.

Zakko, 6th will be practice run. The qualifying will be on the 7th and raceday on the 8th.
You will reach KL at noon, so by the time you get your bags off the conveyor belt, finish immigration (not in that order) transport to the hotel check in and unpack, it wont be noon anymore. Pointless to come running in the middle of things. I suggest you chillax and wait for us to return.
Eat some noodles till then.

I arrive Fri morning, got to fit in some shopping (a little) and visit to some "big shot" elders also. Leave on Monday early morning. Might have to give qualifying a miss or hook up a little later

Oh god! I'm completely off my head today.

I'm arriving on the 7th noon (11:45am). Yes, saturday.
Ain't it a bad day to chill in the room while qualifications are running hot?
Huh, but I'll have to miss it I guess. (hazaar frustrati smilies!)

Just a suggestion - leave your luggage at the Airport (I'm sure they'll have a place you can leave & collect later for a small price) & take a shuttle to the track (shouldn't take you more than 15-20 mins).

Qualifying is at 2 pm, watch that, go back to the Airport, collect your luggage & make your way to the Hotel (by taxi or the train). Slightly complicated but at least you get to see the qualifying..........

I am going to apply for visas tomorrow in Chennai, my travel agent says that it may take a week's time, as an alternative i have a tatkal scheme, which costs Rs.3000/-.... but for the moment i have opted the normal route...

What should i do? Should i take the chance?

What's your experience.... how long did it take for the Visas??

You sure waited till the last minute, didnt you? Just apply immediately and go for whatever fast scheme you can get. Consult with the travel agents.

WHAT!! You are missing qualifying for social visits...do that in Bangalore man. Quali is as much fun as the race is since you get to hear one engine in isolation.

*ahem* there isn't one suman. Malaysia generally has one high commission in most countries, including India. One high commission in Chanakyapuri, New Delhi.

That's why you got yours in 2 days and we all take a week. It's the transit time taken for the passport.

Why you ask, is there only one high commission? Because Malaysia grants VOAs so, it doesn't really need multiple consulates as I guess the high commission is more to maintain diplomatic relations.

I gather that the passport needs to be sent to New Delhi and I guess the tatkaal means by air.

Aaaaahhhhhh, got it Sam, thanks for taking the trouble of explaining! They did have an Asst High Commissioner in Chennai at one time from what I remember but I suppose Visas are not issued there.

In this day & age I'd have thought it would be air in any case, tatkal or otherwise. Just a quick way of making money I guess........
