Favorite outport

People always asked me, where is your favorite port among all? My answer always be... 'a port where I have FRIENDS!'

You probably will think favorite outport should be judge by the scenery, the food, attractions, architecture, culture... Still, nothing beat to have FRIENDS in outport. You probably wont understand how important to have friends in outports. Trust me, it's REALLY important.

After hundred visits in Paris, you won't bother to go up Eiffel Tower. After you tried the cup cake that shown in 'Sex in the city', you won't eat it every time you fly to New York. After you took pictures with Mickey and all other cartoon's character, you won't bother to go Disneyland again when you fly to LA.

The reason why friends are important in outport, because you get to involve in their life. Besides showing you around all the famous attraction, they will tag you along with their daily routine. For example, following them to their local church on Sunday, buying grocery, sending their kids to school, cooking dinner at home. All these activities will make you feel like you LIVED there for a while.

Things that we lack as an air hostess are ROUTINE LIFE. We found that through friends.

The Myth of Air Hostess Part 1

Being a stewardess, apparently is every girls dream. To be honest, it's never my dream. Maybe because i always have the idea that stewardess must be tall, slim, pretty and glamor. Well, i know my height very well. =P

Thank God for His blessing. What i have now are totally His blessing. I was once very low self esteem. I hardly tell people about my occupation. I afraid people will think, " short also can be stewardess meh?! Nowadays, standard really drop!'

There are two types of people i always encounter.

Type one: Too fantasize about my job

The respond i always got from other people will be, 'waaa!! so good! You get to go VACATION all the time.'
Let me get this clear. Vacation is different than WORK.

Vacation means you will get to the destination after finished 5 movies, two meals, one cocktail, few times of toilet visits and probably a nap...

Work means you will get to the destination after SERVING 2 meals, one cocktail service, few rounds of drinks service, few times of TOILET CLEANING, reset some broken Personal TV...bla bla bla...

Well, see the different? =P

Type Two: Look down at my job

Some people will said, 'Well, stewardess is just the WAITRESSES in the air!'
or 'Cabin crew is a BRAINLESS job! U don't need a degree for that. U just need to have a pretty face and nice body!'

Hmmmm... First of all, i don't think stewardess is JUST the waitress in the air. It's actually also a qualified FIRST AIDER, AIRCRAFT SAFETY EQUIPMENT USER, LIFE SAFER, FIRE FIGHTER and of cause TOILET CLEANER! =P


Secondly... Ya, Degree might not be required, the fact is, thousand of degree holders applied for this job, but did not get in.
Who say, this is a brainless job?! This job require not only IQ, the most important things is EQ.
