Mongolia





When I told my folks I have a business trip to Mongolia, my dad's initial reaction was a big "WHAT???!!!" I traveled with my colleagues and bosses for our annual conference last September, so everything went great. Well, except being held at the immigration for ten minutes. Yes, of all places, in Mongolia. My boss breezed through the immigration but when it was my turn, I handed my passport to the lady. She flipped through several pages, pointed to the room across the hall and said "Immigration Office." I tried to keep my calm while talking to the officer. I answered all his questions with a blank face and showed our hotel bookings, event flyers, round trip ticket etc etc.

Aren't you jetset? Good on you for keeping calm while being grilled by immigration. Nothing could me more annoying than getting profiled like that. When I was a family trip to Macau in 2002, we were entering a casino and I must have looked underage, so the guard asked for my passport, looked at the issue date of my passport and accused me "born year 2000!" he said. And I looked at him incredulously and said in a slightly raised voice "I am NOT two years old!" hehehe...
