I'll never forget that day, March 17, I packed my bags and fly from Malaysia to India, then Dubai.
I was overly excited and very happy. But I also had this paranoia and fear when I thought of those stories about being held at the immigration, though I have the visa and all the valid documents that I needed.
My flight took about 12 hours plus 11 hour layover in Mumbai, India. I was too exhausted when I arrived in Dubai. Then, I met an indian girl who I had a small chat with while queuing for the immigration check. She was also a little worried but confident so I felt better.
When it was my turn, the officer just asked my hotel address and after I answered, he stamped my passport in no time. It was shockingly smooth for me! I smirked a little and told myself...This is it!
