It's undesirable feeling. You are just catching your ice cream and got relax for a while after the hectic days. You just had a short conversation with your friends about the plan which you all been prepared to spent your two days in the capital city of a country before you board the plane home. When your friends collect their passport to one pocket, you just keep in mind where are yours. You try to stay as calm as you could and walk a little bit fast than your friends did.
You just opened your bag in the bus baggage and you took all your item out. You shake your things, and repeat it twice. Then you realized, it's vanish. You had ask the committee of the event you participated to re-check your room, is there anything left behind your room. Unfortunately, the answer is no.
Trying not to looks panic, you took a deep breathe and slowly plotting your mind about to do in the next day. Of course, if your passport surely gone.
That were happened to me on my very first experienced going aboard for a poster presentation in Malaysia. I went there with my friends.
I don't tell anyone until a proper situation came and still had a breakfast with them all also arranging our short escape day in KL before we go back to Jogjakarta. I told them that I had been contact my friend who will going to KL by plane those afternoon. I asked her to looking for my passport at Alor Setar Airport, but after she arrived she told me that nobody saw it.
Finally the breakfast was done, my friends started to walking to KL Sentral to catch the train. And me, trying to be calm. Then I told them that I really lost my passport. I have to go to the central police and KBRI if I still wanted to go back to Indonesia together with them. I also told them it is not a big deal if I have to go there by myself because it was absolutely my fault. My carelessness.
I still walk together with them until the escalator and turn left towards the police office below the KL Sentral Station. Yea, sadly, we separated into two groups. Below, I will going to tell you in several points what things you should do when you lost your passport in foreign country.
I told you that it needs a little patient and also money.
