A lethal cloud of volcanic gas, stones, and ash was thrown to a height of 2,500 meters during the eruption. And no one knows what will occur there the next day.

Smaller islets jut out of the turquoise sea that laps the huge white-sand beach at Pantai Cenang, whilst there are plenty of options for food and drink literally steps away from the beach.

Although not everyone enjoys traveling, we can all agree that it is something to look forward to, especially if you are going on a much-needed vacation. However, the voyage and process itself may be tiring and difficult, such as long flying hours, lost passports, long lines, and other traumatic experiences.

However, if you desire a nice voyage, there is one thing to keep in mind. If at all possible, avoid making bomb jokes when in the airport or on an airplane.

@fitriaziz_Jangan dicuba-cuba ya 😉‼️ #thecolossalmalaysia #tiktokguru #pdpr #fabad #learnontiktok♬ Here’s Your Perfect – Jamie Miller

According to Code 92 of the Airport Emergency Plan, when mentioning the word ‘bomb’, even jokingly is an offense or a threat and can be prosecuted under Section 506 of the Penal Code.

Although it is merely a joke, the flight attendants and airport officers will take it seriously. Upon telling the joke, they will inspect your luggage, you will need to make a statement to the police and you might even be fined.

So save your jokes for at home with your friends and family. Unless you want to start a global crisis, or you simply enjoy adding more hours to an already lengthy and tiring journey. Just keep in mind that your obnoxious behavior could have serious consequences.
