The Tale Of Two People

let me just narrate to you something about these 2 people who exist.

they're like fathers. 2 different fathers with a growing kid.

one father says, "son, you give your teacher an apple for guiding you. and tell them thank you everyday once you finish class"

the other, tells the son to do the total opposite.

lets make things a lil complicated. both fathers weren't advising their sons, but shouting at them to do so. like a friggin order to a son who's just found what's a school.

now, lets make things a lil more complicated. let's say the kid had two fathers, and these two so happened to be the fathers we're talking about.

and just for the fun of it, to make life more interesting, let's just knight the fathers to be examiners. so who do we follow? its a matter of do, or prepare to die socially and mentally. maybe physically too if you're lucky.

so who do we follow at this junction that divides so simply easy into two complicated ways?

I'll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go.
You've been the only thing that's right
In all I've done.

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we'll make it anywhere
Away from here.

I Cannot Fathom

i cannot fathom the depth of shallowness,
if i post you a question on your decision,
that were as big as the gust of a butterfly,
yet be returned an old pair of wings.

is this really just a first class cruise to liverpool?
maybe the outback? the great sevens? or the likes?
the champagne corks, crystal glasses and fine dining,
accompanied, never alone?

maybe you are just another Jack,
albeit one always meant to be lucky,
if only you never jumped into things unknowingly,
then maybe you won't feel the icing sea.

no i cannot fathom the depth of shallowness,
if i post you a question of your decision,
that would change lifetimes and lives,
but be swarmed with the awkward silence of a search.

Sharman Needs...

tagged by cuz Kristie. basically i need to type "Sharman needs" in my search bar and see what comes up. i'm not gonna google, coz that didn't come up with much. so search Sharman needs:

1. Sharman needs a psychiatrist.

2. Sharman needs to stand up against the entertainment industry.

3. Sharman needs to do is look at the registry in the "sued" victims .

4. Sharman needs to be somewhat finer.

5. Sharman needs to die. (WTH?!)

i think the first one says it all :P
try it if you're free. mine was a bit hard, since the name is not so common. but i think its quite fun. coz the first one that came up really hit spot on!

Lotsa Solo GH

it's been an unexpected week. last week was absolutely horrible. even to tag it horrible, was an understatement. but let's not talk about the past so much. fast forward to this week, and it was sure a whole lot brighter for me.

i managed to get back the hold on doing the exercises after the short hiatus of 1168's action in the air. it was nerve wrecking at first, but all i needed to do, was to get my nerves controlled. i get anxious and nervous easily. and too much of being anxious and nervous makes me do big blunders. big kahuna, big shit.

so after doing some solo exercises, i managed to get myself intact. doing exercises with instructors later on became easier. don't get me wrong, i still do get frighten by certain someone's presence. it's impossible to imagine them not being there.
"you need to be more confident".

someone told me this, and i get his point. its just that, this whole thing still overwhelms me sometimes. i love it, but it is a lil foreign. like the fun fair you'd go when you were a kid, wanting to ride every ride that existed. wanting to run every corner in every direction.
yet, scared of losing sight of your parents. i just don't want to be over-confident and lose all that i've gained. that'd be ultimately scary.

view of kb airfield from 1000feet.

"AsianExpress ready for push-back!"

stall exercises have been good so far. steep turns to the left is pretty stable. but whenever i do the turn to the right, somehow i (always) magically end up about 100 feet higher midway through the turn. fyi, steep turn is a turn at 45degress angle of bank. slight G can be felt if not done properly. so it should be done as smoothly as possible for comfort.


a smoker was heard saying this with the windows up and a lit ciggie in his mouth:

"i don't know about you, but i need to wind down the windows coz i'm getting choked by the smoke".

welcome to the everyday of my life, i'd say!

Dream Bigger

i was stuck in hostel the past weekend due to flying and making two radio equipment displays. this was one of em' halfway through:

i couldn't help but to laugh to myself. it looked like a one-eyed haloween pumpkin. what to do, all by myself, so have to entertain myself with such lameness.

so anyways, started instrument let-downs today. we did NDB for runway 10. cut things short, i need to prepare myself more on ground. and the needle was rather ill disciplined. keep running away. but overall, it was a pretty good day. can't say the same bout tomorrow though *bites tongue*

MAS, Westar, AirAsia. soon it'll be a frequent view here in kb? hope so.

last night i was busy trying to prepare myself for today's exercise. so i asked one of my friend to explain the chart to me properly coz he's quite advanced in his flying. he's been doing let-downs for a few weeks already.

he got stumped at one point, and remarked: WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?

he couldn't explain it. cat got his tongue? no. but it was just incomprehendable. the figures were massively impossible. it was a situation worth to be perplexed. so we sat wondering what the hell was wrong. the chart couldn't be wrong. for quite some time we just sat trying to figure it out.

finally he gave up. and so did i.

later on, another friend came, and said: WRONG CHART la. this for category C & D.

very embarassing. fyi, category C & D charts are for airliner aircrafts. guess we're just dreaming of the future to come earlier! already getting ourselves psyched for the airbus.

never too early to start dreaming??? *grins*
