I haven’t posted an entry for the longest time. Anyway, what’s keeping me busy these days is that I have a new dog! Her name is Alex and she’s a three month golden retriever. Very active, which is kind of good, so I can also run after her for some exercise. I was told to look after what she eats or else she will be overweight for her age. I honestly forgot how to take care of a dog. The last time I had mine was when back when I was 11. And mind the expenses too. Shots, grooming, vitamins, and of course food. Now I’m in the process of training her of where she should do her business and what not. She’s still learning of retrieving things, and keeps on chewing her toys. Alex keeps me relaxed whenever I come home. We don’t put her in a cage yet, not until she’s fully grown. She wanders around the house and the people her helps me train her as well. She sleeps on a doggie bed that my mom gave me inside my room. And what’s sweet is that she wakes me up as if she’s trying to shake my arm. But that’s not good if I came from a long haul. πŸ™‚ Other than that it’s great to have a dog again running around at home.

Inspite of all the drama and you see on the news for the past few weeks, I hope that everything will be okay. As being a part of the aviation industry, it’s not easy to wake up in the morning, greet passengers as if you had a nice sleep, stay and try to keep awake, keep the passengers safe, comfortable and relaxed, and come back to your domicile. It’s not easy to risk your body on the hazards of flying. It’s not easy to train for two months and memorize the manuals that you should know by heart and soul. And it’s not easy to let your loved ones make them think that it is safer to fly. Other than that, we need to be heard. We need the people let us know that we are also human. It’s not about the money, the per diems, the glamour and all. For me it’s about understanding, compassion and consideration as well.

When Glee started on it’s first few episodes, I thought that it was just the usual high school series where jocks and cheerleaders would appear. My boyfriend told me that it was quite good not until I saw a clip of their rendition of “Don’t Stop Believing” – now I’m hooked! I even have it on my alarm every Wednesdays at 4:00 PM and 10:00 PM. Also fastpasstv.com has the new season so I cannot be left behind.

On the other hand, I called in sick this morning. I have this flu again, which I remember, I should have got the flu vaccine months ago. But nonetheless, with the crazy weather that we’re having right now, anybody could catch it. My head feels so light and nose is so red. To top it all off, I cannot taste anything, and almost finished three large boxes of Kleenex since last night. Now all I need is my bed, a steaming bowl of chicken soup, some siomai, and my laptop to keep me sane.

Here’s the lastest on Glee. πŸ™‚


1. In the past month, what was your biggest OOPS? – I was on this walkalator with the rest of the crew. Chatting with one of the crew, I didn’t noticed that we almost reached the end. So I missed a step and almost fell down. Thank God there were helping hands around me. lol.
2. In the past month, what inspired you to let out your most heartfelt WHEW? – When I thought that I almost lost my phone again in an airport.
3. In the past month, what caused you to say, β€œHUH?”
– One passenger asked me if I have extra underwear.
4. In the past month, what influenced the most ZZZZZZZZs?
– My crazy May roster.
5. In the past month, what was most GRRRRRRRRR-worthy? –
Nothing much. May was quite smooth, minus the crazy sched.


One thing I also love about flying is that you can get as intimate as you can with a total stranger. For an hour you will know his or her life story, what does he or she do, and the list goes on. I always feel good if a guest from a flight would remember me. I’ve heard a lot like “You were in our flight last blah blah – I remember you!” After that flight, you will totally forget about everything not unless there’s a particular incident with a passenger. On this flight to SFO, one passenger caught my attention. She was alone. Seated at the bulkhead area, aisle seat. Carrying a coat, her own blanket and eye mask, some magazines and an iPod. I greeted her and she greeted me back with a warm smile. After take off I gave her, her meal and someΒ  juice. I took her tray as she opened the reading light and pulled out a magazine. A few minutes later I checked the cabin and saw her sleeping, then I turned her reading light off. Before preparing for my crew rest, I talked to my fellow cabin crew and I saw her coming towards me. My colleague left me and I started talking to her. She said she wants some water. I told her I will bring it to her seat instead. Brought her water and she thanked me. Quickly she asked me if I can sit beside her because she needs to talk to someone because she’s getting bored. The seat right next to her was empty so I sat down. I thought that it would be a quick chat, but I know she will talk about her life, like any passenger would.

I’ve missed a couple of emails regarding questions about my job. So I decided to make a Formspring too so I can reply instantly. Sometimes I do not have the time to open emails. I have different emails so I can’t barely to open all of it. Add me if you have Formpsring too. πŸ™‚


One clip from an episode from Family Guy would be perfect. πŸ™‚ I really enjoy watching this one.

Again, Happy Mother’s Day!

So I am here at the terminal being on duty for reserve. Honestly I do not like being a reserve since I have to wait for someone who will call in sick, or be a no show. Waiting for some morning flights though. But really. I’d rather fly than be stuck here doing nothing. I forgot my laptop, and maybe a dvd player. I don’t feel like reading my book. Already ate breakfast by myself. Saw a couple of set of crew passed by. And yeah I am typing from an iTouch. Thank God for technology. Ok so enough about me ranting again. I think I’ll just watch people pass by, or spot for a celebrity. Happy Friday!

  1. What Rolling Stones song best summarizes the week you just had? – I”m Alright
  2. What movie reminds you most of your childhood? – Home Alone
  3. What part of the newspaper do you never (or almost never) read? – None. I usually read the paper from cover to cover.
  4. What television show is a lot better than you thought it would be? – Glee! I thought it was boring at first, like your typical high school setting type of show. But now I’m hooked!
  5. What station is the radio nearest you set on at this moment? – It’s off at this very moment.

Finally recurrent training is over. Flight attendants are required to attend their recurrent training annually. It’s like you are renewing your driver’s license every year minus the fire fighting drill. Hehe. We have to do all of those things again that we did when we had initial training. Aircraft familiarization, it depends on which type of aircraft that we’re qualified for. First aid, fire drills, ditching, emergency procedures, etc. We have to take those long tests again too. This is required to all as per FAA and ATO requirements.

After the RT as what we call, we are also required to have check rides. Wherein a supervisor would board a flight with us, non-operational, and therefore conduct the check ride on which leg that he is assigned too. It begins with the briefing, the preparation of the aircraft, boarding, compliance, service, and everything else that needs to be checked. We are also asked a few questions regarding all of the things that we took up from the previous RT days. It might be stressful for the first timers because they have no idea on what will happen in the next few days. But if it is your second of third, it will just be a breeze.

After the busy week, we headed south to Laiya and took a break. Now I’m all tanned, hyped up, and ready to fly again.

Flight attendant, twenty-something, loves passengers who behave, hates unruly passengers. Cannot live without chocolate, vanilla ice cream, pasta with anything, Reese's Peanut Butter cups, cashmere cardigan, hot water bottles, Vaseline, concealer and eyeliner and some blush. Red pumps, rainy days, hot water with honey and lime, stolen shots, lovable kids, undisturbed sleeps, clean lavatories.
