Joy of flying


Assalamualaikum and good morning.


I'm not good with impromptu writing. Frequently I ended up with disheveled ideas if I'm rushing it. I'm comfortable with writing calmly, keep it away for days then come back again for lavish finishing. That's apply to my blog as well.

But in this solemn morning, where I believe the nation, my nation is grieving over the lost of MH17 in the eastern part of Ukraine, I figured that I want to share a little bit of thoughts. Hoping that my humble joint of words will not bring any disturbance.

My first memory of flying is with Malaysia Airline. The feeling of going home or to a vacation is always exciting. I used to plan what I should wear, how should i do my hair so that it will be comfortable to rest my head or debating whether I should bring extra reading. In fact, I still plan on certain occasions. That's my own joy of flying. 

Few days ago, last Wednesday to be exact, I went to the airport to pick up someone. The person said his arrival will be quite later, and he refused to make me drive and wait that late. But I insisted. We didn't get dinner or a drink after that. Just a silly conversation of 15 minutes to his house. A pleasant feeling. That's also a part of my own joy of flying. In this case, of waiting.

After 17 years...



Imagine if that arrival never happened. 

Some of the passengers eager for holiday. A few holding infants. Some excited to meet their family back in Malaysia. Mums or kids waiting in the airport. And their arrival never happened. Such a sad thing that their own joy of flying was robbed.

One of our Tesl family was on board. This is heartbreaking. Deepest condolences to her family and acquaintances.

Yea, it was really shocking hearing about it last night at midnight. I slept so late looking at all the news updates.

Whenever I fly, I always have motion sickness. So, with all the tragedy that happened, I sure wish I could just go back to Sabah and just stay there with family and friends.

Sorry to hear about Madam Jc. Sincerely.

Hope we all get answers as soon as possible. This disaster is unacceptable.
