whilst in the air

how's your new year everyone? 7 days in, anything bad or good happened? i'm awaiting to board my first flight of the year. since the new year, i've only been in the office twice =D. i am so not looking forward to 2011's review with the bosses, i would say i'm kinda 'enjoying' what i'm doing now compared to what i was doing previously but i'd rather not jinx it because i'm on loan to begin with and anything can happen once i've opened my big fat mouth.

waiting to board
ok so i may be kinda outdated, but this is my first time being in a plane that uses the video method for their safety information briefing, no kidding. is that common for a 737-800? since i'm flying weekday there weren't many passengers aboard, i practically got a whole row to myself. but there ain't much you can do on a 55-minute flight anyway except read Going Places, stare out the window (if you're travelling at night there really isn't much to see), indulge yourself with salted peanuts and orange juice. or you can blog in airplane mode and publish when you're safely on the ground again.

empty seats... got a whole row to myself
jakun because this is the first time ever experiencing this. even AA doesn't have this
the kind flight attendant just handed me a whole bunch of salted peanuts to bring back haha. i remember the time i met my friend aboard another MAS flight and she did the same thing - she gave me a plastic bag full of nuts! lol (and dengan muka tak malu i took them all kah kah). so by all means, do generously take a handful of nuts when offered.

i wonder why my brother decided to quit his job doing aircraft maintenance, but i suppose he'd be much better off with a higher qualification, so let's hope he decides to work with planes again in the future =P (i pulak overexcited hahah). planes will always be somewhat of a mystery to me (forget the physics jargon of Bernoulli for a minute, aite?) because who would've thunked that a heavy piece of mahinery would be able to fly as if it could flap its mechanical wings like a bird? at 28,000 ft in the air?

sharks' fin in the air
Dinara calls them 'a-plane'. we have 6 plane models in the room so there's no reason for her not to recognize one. Dayana knows her Daddy goes off to study to fly a plane, but has never been on one herself. one day perhaps.

my youngest dah pandai mintak 'kay-yee' btw. she knows a carrier when she sees one, i have a bunch of them strewn around the room. trouble is Dayana would wanna up too, and she's heavy T___T (kakak kuat dengki dengan adik, sigh).

kay-yee a 2.4yo + 5mo
ok my flight just landed, no reward for guessing correctly where i've landed at =P. have a great evening ahead peeps. as for me, well let's say i think i'm gonna be literally be groping in the dark for awhile after this, bwahahahahah.
