Getting back



It has been quite awhile now and I guess a lot people out there have changed and I do believe that myself has changed too... So many things happen in the past years that I think that the way I got my blog out would have changed too..

Life has been pretty much great and I'm also sort of living my dream working as a pilot now having officially finished all my training... The memories of me blogging few years back telling all my blog buddies how much I actually wanted to be a pilot just feel as though it happened few weeks ago... Joining the blogging competition and then going for all the selections was tough I thought but hell I really had no idea what I actually signed up for... Having to leave Malaysia for more than a year and then to proceed to Kelantan (if youve been there you know what I mean) was kinda crazy..

To sum it up pretty much, I was in the Gold Coast in Australia for 15 months, Kelantan for about 6 months ish and then back in KL for my jet *oooooo.......* training for 3 months and then walla here I am proudly (and painstakingly) working in the LCCT as a pilot... I love my career and trust me, never once that I regretted choosing to join this industry... No doubt once in awhile being disappointed and annoyed but then again next day when I wake up I still know that I will never give up on this job of mine..

Ive lost quite a few things along my journey to becoming who I am and what I am today but I do hope that all those sacrifices I've made are worthwhile...

For now, I'll try my best to be back here in my bloggie and time to get connected again with my social media..

i need you

i am so loving it when my whole family just manage to sit down together at the living room having dinner without anyone arguing with someone else across the table... it has been such a long period since i've actually enjoyed this real fulfilled family time with both my parents and sister... when i was younger (5 years ago), my sis would be in college and her hostel most of the time while dad was usually the busy one dealing with business and socializing with his customers and friends... there would usually only be my mom and myself having dinner but deep down in my heart, i would really wish that someone 4 of us, as a family would just sit down together happily, laughing and eating enjoying our meals..
well, i guess i wouldnt get to enjoy this much anymore after this as i would be gone again to Kota Bahru for 5 months or so for my studies and then would have to leave my parents for my sis to take care on my behalf.. i actually always thought that i am a stronger will and minded person but can't believe that i actually really appreciate the presence of my family members in the dining room....

working me

when i was much younger, i thought that working would be easy and not having to wear the same old plain white shirt and green pants with same old white shoes to school every weekdays would be fun and having colleagues to talk all day earning your own money would be a big thing in life... however as i look at myself in the mirror today, almost there doing what i've always wanted and entering my adulthood into the working life, i realised that what every other adults told me 5 years back was all true.. working is not as fun as i thought it is, and wearing the plain school uniform isn't such a bad thing as one don't have to worry and think of what to wear... no investment on different designer clothings and shoes is better than having a saving account, while not having to spend on expensive yet very unhealthy lunch meals instead as canteen food will always be available is like having a 12 months fixed deposit account...
kids out there (i think i am old enough and qualified to call you guys that), working is not as fun as what it seems... exams aren't the worst thing in life... not able to make ends meet is... enjoy your school day, skip classes with your friends as much as you want as long as your parents dont know...

give up not

few years ago, if i were to know that what i will be today, i would go crazy knowing that i will be able to get my dreams realised and making dreams come true... however, how much would one actually give to get what they really want in life?? i've always wanted to be a pilot knowing that nothing else would really complete me.. i put in effort and time obtaining resources to get into the cadet programme and work my way through the training till today... sad to say though, not everyone would put in as much effort to obtain what they really want in life... nothing comes knocking at your door so one will actually have to put in more effort.. failing is just another step in successing... never give up, keep moving forward.. have fun in life and know that there are still alot people out there that are still trying hard to even to live a day, so who are you to give up?

life of my own

It has been ages since I've taken an inter-state bus rides and it actually still feels pretty good. As of now, I'm on my way traveling up north to my sweet hometown in Penang from KL.

Throughout this journey, I've seen places that I used to go to and roads that I used to travel when I was still in my college 2 years back. Traveling by road using the express busses has been something I'm familiar with as it's pretty much convenient to travel although it's slightly longer than usual. The seats are comforter compared to the airlines and are reclineable with huge arm rest.

Anyway, I'm getting accustomed to moving from a place to another, not having my family members and parents with me all the time, I've learned to live independently financially and mentally. I'm not saying that I'm a filial son or otherwise but I just pretty much like having a life of my own without much of worries or restriction.

Flying will soon be a career of mine and I guess that people around me will have to get used to not having me around all the time especially during the celebrations etc.

I do miss my friends and family, but just maybe not to the extend of having to stay with them all the time 24/7. I appreciate them as much as they do for me and I do care for them as much but I like spreading my wings and going around places.

dreamy but real

Some people dream to be a doctor while some dare not to dream and just let things settle and bring them to be whoever they can be.

It's normal that people around us actually sets an expectation towards us and want us to do better and to improve but we shall not forget, who we actually are and what we want in life.

Like myself, I want to be a pilot at one point of my life, and maybe too in the marketing/ social media industry where I get to expand my network of friends and to gain further knowledge in life. You can say that these two dreams of mine are pretty much two different things that doesn't really come together in any sense but I reckon that why just be normal and live a boring life?

So now here I am, on my way realizing one of my dream of becoming a pilot thanks to AirAsia, while having all these amature media fun time using my blog! Why restrict yourself to only what other people is doing? Start of something new, keep it going and let it grow! Who said that day dreaming is bad? It's a beginning of something new I'd say!

So, get your bum out there, do things no one has ever done and be proud of yourself!

flight and everything else



I see that i've gained a few new readers here lately although that the page hasn't been updated much lately...

anyway, i've got my CPL test confirmed on tomorrow (ground) and Thursday (flying) so things are pretty much looking good now... i've been delayed several times which made up the several extra months here due to weather, aircraft instructor and yada yada and so, now i'm just pretty much hoping for the weather here to improve and the fluffy nice cloud to dissipate for the next few days in order for me to get more flyings and test out of the way...

On the other hand, im not sure if anyone noticed what is going on nowadays with our mother nature, natural disasters has just been striking and every now and then, there would be an earthquake, flash floodings, tropical cyclones and crazy wacky weather and person running around ruining my everyone else's day... As of earlier this afternoon, the city of Christchurch in New Zealand was hit by several earthquakes measuring at about 6.3 richerscale (or something i dont know)... there are definitely fatalities and heaps of casualties out there and my heart really goes out to the victims and their family members...

As on now, i can do nothing much than to pray for the victims and of course myself so that i can pass my CPL test and get things done here...

p/s. if you're free, i don't mind you wishing me good luck for my test...

the journey



i was told by someone that its cool that i'm a soon to be a pilot now and he wish that he can be like who i am... if i were who i was 2 years ago, i would really think that its something very glamourous and something to be proud of in my life... but now, looking at myself, i don't actually think that its really that much of a big thing...

i'm not saying that i'm not appreciating what i am having and doing now, but what i mean is that i am proud of who i was and how i get here... personally, i think the process of becoming a pilot, the training, and the person who was involved all along and helped me through is the bigger picture...

i still do remember all the people who has helped me when i wanted guidance, support and confidence... I still remember who actually fetched me to all the interviews and who was it that told me to calm down and gave me faith for the confident... All these little things and people has actually give me the faith to keep going and was around for me when i felt like giving up... i may have dissapointed some of you, but i just really want to say that i really do care about you and i wont be who i am without you... mistakes has been done and i can't turn back to the past, but i will always remember how things were and i am still as grateful!
