I said to my-self let’s try to renew the passport .. looks like an easy solution right ? of course not ! .. nothing was easy .. when I went to renew the passport they said we can’t do anything unless the passport is at least 6 months to expire .. GUYS !! I’m leaving the country for two years !!.. The expected famous answer was “Sorry we can’t do anything” and they said later you can renew it from the embassy there in Malaysia ..
