good bad weather

i basically did nothing for the whole day... woke up at 8 thinking that it is saturday and got a shock of my life after a while of being lazy on the bed.... went to shower, have breakfast and put on my uniform before cycling biking to school..

was scheduled to fly for my Pre-GFPT with AH at 1130 but had a last minute change of plan as CW wanted to take me instead (i wonder if i've became his favourite student).... well, i was not mentally prepared for the flight actually as it came way too sudden and i was not in the test mode due to the CNY and celebration thingy that was SUPPOSED to be going on now... anyhow, like it or not, i still had to go for the flight and make myself prepared for the flight and as usual, the last minute kinda thing came in and i was forced to cramp in as much info and as much things as possible into my overloaded brain with limited memory...

as my flight was slightly delayed due to my friend's flight who was 2 hours before me being delayed, i only entered the aircraft at 1230 to do my pre-flight checks and everything... as i was listening out at the radio to obtain the ATIS (Aerodrome Terminal Information System), i saw CW standing at the hangar, watching out into the sky and walking towards JM who has just returned from a flight... awhile later, CW walked towards the aircraft and he was like...

CW : well.... the weather is not looking very good here at the aerodrome... Crosswind of 17knots and seems to be picking up more...
ME : yea.... i've just checked on the ATIS as well.. 360/20 gusting max 17knots crosswind...
CW : yea buddy.... it'll be worst later.... have you got your clearance and everything???
ME : nope... i'm going to now.... well................ (long pause)
CW: buddy.... we can go for our flight now but we won't be able to do our circuits here and we will have to re-do the flight and waste ur time if we do that...
ME : *happily smiling* well...... its ok CW, i'll chain the aircraft up and do the shut down... no worries....
CW: ok.... thanks buddy.... sorry and see you inside....

there, i was one happy cadet didnt have to fly as i was not well prepared and the lady weather heard my prayers... hahahahaha.... I LOVE THE WEATHER for now
