usually, when people ask where i work, i tell them i work with airasia. then they'd let go, "flight attendant" straightaway. now readers, stay calm. there is nothing wrong with being a flight attendant. their job is so important, people always tend to overlook them. without them, we could never take off. they are vital, you have no idea the burden they carry each day, and i respect each and everyone of them.
but why give me the awestruck jaw-dropping bewildered astonished OMG-you-can't-be-serious look when i tell you i'm a pilot. dude, i don't want to have your death on my conscience if you die of heart attack. you were the curious one.
is it so surprising? it has not happen once or twice, that's why it's a little frustrating. but don't worry, i'm still good. the job has been interesting, even if it's been much tiring. over the past week, many interesting flights. there was a cross-bleed start, fuel imbalance (just for practice), and few nights ago, terrible thunderstorm rain over in kl and medan, with windshear alert going off on the climb during take off. what an experience.
also, dear passengers, please be advised, like any other public toilet, please lock the door when you do your tinkling business. i don't like disturbing your concentration.
i know you care,
just shout whenever,
and i'll be there.
you want my love,
you want my heart,
and we will never ever ever be apart. "
