For the past few months, I've resorted to making most of my rants on Twitter. It's been my safe space, where only my nearest and dearest are - and I know they won't judge me.

I've neglected Dayre - only to post hauls and foodie posts, mainly because the people I've been following have somehow ALL become mommies and their content are all about babies.

I have no problem reading about babies and mommylife but I don't think they would be interested in my lacklustre content any longer.

That is why I'm back to good 'ol Blogger because this blog is honestly so dead already.

What a long ass intro to what I was here in the first place to rant about.

So here's the thing - my company allocated a point system in where you can "give" away "free-tickets" (just pay airport tax) to friends and family that you nominate.

So the people who I've nominated know of this convenience because I had to inform them about it and also get their travel document details for verification.

(*Look - I'm not pinpointing fingers to anyone here, it just get annoying sometimes*)

Anywayyyy. One of the person in that list happens to be a frequent user of these points. I could say that a majority of these points have been utilised by said person.

I'm not stingy on these points - I don't mind helping anyone out to get a ticket at a cheaper price (bcs I know plane tickets are expensive AF). But this person has NEVER ever reimbursed me or offer to pay for the ticket or even offer to pay for a drink (which probably costs more expensive than a domestic flight really). I'm not one to ask for money back, honestly. I just am honestly not the type. It's just a small amount but after a while and after thinking about it (since I bought said person tix numerous times already) it rrally accumulates into quite a neat sum of money.

I've voiced these sentiments to my mother, who is literally one of the nicest persons ever (when the door bangs closed behind her, she'll literally apologize to the goddamn door) exclaimed to me "No! You should ask --- to pay you back! Manada benda dalam hidup ni free! (Nothing in life is free!)

"You worked hard for your money. And --- works too! You shouldn't just give it freely."

This - coming from my mum who'd always say the kindest things was suddenly a hustler! Hahahahha I laughed at her tenacity but she cut me off and said --- should reimburse me everytime.

*

Why I brought it up this time is because said person has justtttt asked me to get them a ticket for *tomorrow* (mind you this person likes to ask last minute as well /cue eyeroll) and I just sighed loudly and typed out "Yeah sure, I can get you the ticket but I'm currently broke and you have to transfer me the money so I can pay for it."

Hah.

So far I haven't gotten a response back so I don't know if --- is suddenly taken aback at my reply or what.

Seriously, I'm not sure if I have a mean streak in me.

On trips like this, and set crew like THIS  is when I'm so thankful that I'm still flying and able to enjoy nightstops.

I'm fkying with Awan on this trip, along with an old friend I.T, and a cool Purser as well as an awesome SCC.

Eventhough our flight was delayed by two hours from KUL, we still managed to have fun in flight then followed by a lepak sesh after landing at 0230 (arriving hotel at 0315) up til now (0800 btw!) AND THENNNN we're planning to do Hai Di Lau hotpot for lunch and then AP Plaza afterwards.

Crazy.

Anddd then Starbucks Roastery. Ohmaigod. So keng this set crew. Hahahaha

Ohkay. So sleepy and tipsy now. Gonna sleeeeeeeeep.

Since dayre is officially gone - this is going to be my outlet from now on.

Ciao!

Well, well. Look who's back?

I guess it's inevitable as dayre is shutting down soon. Everyone's been busy shifting to wordpress ... exporting posts and such. But I didn't bother because mine weren't really as interesting as everyone else's.

Just mundane excerpts of the day.

I hope I'll be more active in updating this blog more regularly. I don't think I'll be able to replace the simple functionality of dayre. I'm familiar of the workings of blogger too, so I don't think I'll be signing up for any other blog accounts.

But who reads blogs anymore, right?

B-T-dubsss happy 2k18! Two months into the new year, nontheless.

Tight.

Imagine this-

You're running in a dark and narrow tunnel towards the light. But instead of reaching the end, that light gets smaller and smaller and eventually flickers out. Then you're engulfed in total darkness.

Been feeling that way for the past few days. Tightness in the chest, accelerated heartbeat, onslought of migraine attacks.

Not sure if its my anxiety acting up or just the effects of caffeine.

Truth to be told, I have been feeling abit off about alot of stuff. I feel pressured in some situations - not to say that anyone is pressuring me per se ... maybe I'm putting too much pressure on myself. 

I need to learn to take it easy.

Pop a chill pill, sit back and relax.

Wow. August already?

Where has the year gone? Zipping past so, so fast.

Work has been alright - same old, same old. Who'd knew, almost three years here already.

This month, Awan and I would be married for 4yrs5mts.

Amazing.

How do I feel after 4 years of marriage?

Well, of course not everything is always smooth sailing. There are petty arguments over nothing, but if I can compare the good times to the "less good" ones, thank the Lord, the former wins.

But honestly, there are times where I think we take each other for granted. I seem to still think he can read my mind when he obviously can't. It's a male disease, no? Being oblivious to everything around them. Or is it just a gimmick for them to annoy us women? Haha

On the baby-making front, we're not exactly trying like I've been telling everyone I meet. I mean, to an extent I think we're both still scared shitless of the notion of having to care for another hooman-bean other than ourselves.

To tell you the truth, there also hasn't been enough QT together to actually do the deed. Our rosters has been brutal the past July, and Augusy doesn't seem to be letting us catch a break as well. Although I am excited with the fact that we have ICN rostered together at the end of the month! Hoping that at least two or more Korean crew will be going home so that we can finally cuddle in a foreign country! Haha

So.

For 20 years of my life - my period has NEVER been late. Early, always. Late?

Never.


And now, according to my Flo app, it is ONE day late. Gosh.
Not so sure how I feel, I mean, it's just ONE day right ... I shouldn't jump to conclusions just yet.

But then again, maybe I should just go buy several pregnancy test kits.

The absence of high-speed wifi at the Nest is making me go out of my mind.

Yes, we have officially moved into the Nest ... almost 3 weeks now.

It still needs alot of work - we don't even have a kitchen or a sofa - but at least its ours, ya know.

We'll build it slowly.

*

Work has been ... pretty awesome. I've finally gotten the hang of flying widebody. Because to be honest I felt out of place and out of my mind for a while. I love routine - my OCD goes into high gear and is actually acceptable. Although I do get called on for going overboard sometimes. But I believe its my OCD that made a few Pursers realize that I am passionate about this job. I mean what's that saying "enjoy what you do so you wont work a day in your life", right?

Been getting merits a few times and I feel like finally all that hard work has paid off. Not to say I'm going to slack off, it fuels me up to want to want to be better.

I realize that I've been flying for 7months here now and time has passed every so quickly! Only a few more months and it'll be a year and I have to sit for my SEP recurrent. Not particularly the most enjoyable time of year but it signifies another notch in my career.

I've yet to decide what I'm working up to - supervisory role? Educator? Who knows.

I'd love to fly forever - because I love going away to other countries and escape, eventhough it's just for a little while. But let's be honest, could I do it forever?

What if when I get pregnant? Awan's dead set on me getting pregnant by the end of the year and the thought is unerving.
My fidgety self would be bored senseless staying at home with nothing to do.

Tsk tsk.

This is why I hate being home alone by myself and no wifi. I can't distract myself long enough to not worry about the things of tomorrow.
