I am Loving Osaka

I get to fly to Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka in Japan
I love Osaka the most
The infamous ferris wheel, breathtaking view regardless day time or night

I can just stand there seeing it moves slowly
Some kind of strange kind of touching feeling like you finally realize something, understood something
The wheel is this big, how big can your problem be? 
Why focus on a tiny matter when the world is that beautiful?
lol.. I can literally breathe in and out, amount-fully, go back to hotel and have a good night sleep
Tomorrow wake up, without this ferris wheel view, start thinking about my problem lol.. haha

Dress up free and easy to go out is always a pleasure
Unable to do when I was working in previous airline company

About food, ranged from RM15 and above
The meal above cost me RM20
Last time, I thought Australia cost a fortune, actually Japan and Korea are almost the same too
Cannot deny that I do miss Kuching, KK sometimes, meals are cheaper
Wait, let me recall, I did have a plate of noodle with shrimp and it cost me RM15 in Kuching
Furious... lol 
Well, foods make me happy, spend money on food, I am okay with that

Oops.. Caught right-handed with instant noodle at night lol
I really love eating but I also love saving money hahahaha
I wonder why am I constantly hungry lately, instant noodle helped to ease my hunger a little
Plus it ain't exactly expensive just not so nutritious

Hmm.. someone was speaking about nutritious foods, why smoking then? lol
It is entirely different issue here, just leave me alone lol

Oh ya.. Hotel provides free buffet breakfast
At level 54! Mid-Air restaurant is the place
Captured the amazingly stunning Osaka for my safe keeping

- The Front -

- The Starboard - 

- The Port -

These pictures stir some thoughts of ocean
I shall always remind myself
Don't have to try too hard to be someone that I was never gonna be
Trying too hard to create the impression that we are font of all knowledge, we are bound to disappoint
Trying too hard to be strong, places a great and unnecessary burden on us
Let's just know and accept who we are, warts and all..  A natural self confidence
I maybe not good enough, so what? Are you perfect? Always room for improvement
Yes.. Look and Listen more while talk lesser
And sometimes.. We just have to laugh, a joke or two a day, is what we all needed
I remember when I was so down, someone closest to me, hugged me with tears while telling me this
"I will tell you a joke a day, make you laugh ok? You will never be sad again"
Thinking about it, brings tears to my eyes. 
You are really my sweet heart, I love you.

First Month Flying LOL

June 2014, my first month flying with AirAsia X
It has been really weird for me to come forward and announce this
"Good morning, how are you doing? I'm Crason. It's my first month flying"
LOL seriously, in any airline, seniority is always meant something to some people
Well.. *Flip hair* I am not what your shallow minded thinking ok
I am here just to work and receive my hard earn salary in the end of the month
That's all, just like everyone else

This look is deceiving.. "You look so young! Are you fresh?"
Well well, I get that a lot.. tell me about it hahhahhha

One good thing I love my current company
I can finally put CRASON as my name! Unlike my previous company XD
 This time, I am gonna don this uniform, and fly to different countries

Re-visit Shanghai
Yes!!!!!!!!!!!! It's been 2 years plus since my last night stop in Shanghai
Finally get to taste 麻辣烫 again, happy happy!

Shanghai view somewhere on a busy street, can't remember the name
P/S: The guy in blue isn't me, at all 

I got Incheon too!! South Korea!!
Strangest thing, I have never visited any fried chicken shop even though last time when I was with MAS. In here, my colleagues all go for this type of dinner.
Something new, not bad but seriously fullness up to my throat. Never again.

OMG....... This is what I have been looking forward!
I was in Haneda/Tokyo! First time in Tokyo!
Arrived at night, I followed my set crew to town - Shinjuku

It was the last train, still full of people

Here I am! Shinjuku!

Xtra happy! Jumping here and there!
Though it was summer in Japan, weather wasn't hot at all in the night
Cold weather brings hunger, agree?

Yummy supper!
The soup was so special, taste like egg yolk
And of course! My favourite always, Gyoza - fried dumpling

And so.. we hang out from midnight till morning
First time in my life I guess? I have never done this before
Hold my sleepiness till morning but it was worthy, I will tell you why later
Anyway, shall we say Ohaiyogozaimasu? Morning Japan! You're beautiful!

Ahahahhahaha this is it! Found this in one of the shop
They sell this openly, in public. In Malaysia, have to show I.C., 18years old only
Had some good laugh but didn't buy any
I have one lively and functioning at home, I do not need this yet XD

After that I was in Sydney and Melbourne
Got up from bed, ran downstairs to smoke
All hotels in Australia is Non-Smoking, by law
Do I have a choice? Don't think so lol..
Anyway it was Winter in Australia, icy cold wind, I love winter!

Ya, this is for someone special
Look what I found?? Kiss kiss kiss ^^

After that I was in Nagoya! For my very first time too!
It was a long stay. Arrived in the morning, next day off, and depart next evening
KitKat is a must! All types! Wasabi,  Sakura, Green Tea, Strawberry, Red Bean
And of course Bento too! My family members love them!
So I really don't mind spending money on these, so long they are happy ^^

I had so much fun!
Don't want to go back to KL is it? Haha, I laugh
It's time to go home! Let's snap a picture!

Wait wait wait!! I am not ready!!

Hola! We are the ambassadors of AirAsia X
Please join us in our smooth and pleasant journey around the world

So today, 30th June 2014, marked my first full month with AirAsia X
You don't have to tell me, even I myself can feel that I am much happier now lalala~

Year 2014, Everything is New!

Gosh, I left blogging behind for such a long time. Please let me colour my blog with new pictures.

Unexpectedly, I left my beloved ex company Malaysia Airlines, after almost a month of struggling and planning. It wasn't an easy decision. I love MAS since the first day I joined, unbelievably 5.5 years with MAS, I am sorry that I had to move on.

Before I left, I had one of the best roster ever in this 5.5 years time. I finally got my turn to visit Kuantan, stayed in a 5 stars hotel - Hyatt Regency. Nevertheless, Hong Kong and Taipei. And I flew with a few people that I truly enjoyed working with. In MAS, cabin crew are like one big family, the only regret of me leaving is my friends in MAS. Hmmm.. Perhaps the free wine/alcohol and the unlimited meals provided. LOL.

The beautiful sand beach in Kuantan - Teluk Cempedak.

My last meal in Hong Kong. Pork 'spare parts' Porridge, ZhaLiang (Rice Noodle Rolls stuffed with YouTiao), and also a cup of local instant noodle. I knew I am so gonna miss you HKG.. One of my favourite destination, best foods, best shopping, the best hotel Sky Marriott Hong Kong. Sigh.

My last Taipei, die die I must go out with this crazy girl, Shiryn Ong. She is considered one of the hottest flying mother, two kids but body maintained. She spent me an expensive buffet steamboat meal in GuoDaYe, thank you Shiryn. The temple I used to go, 福德宫, it seems kinda impossible for me to visit that temple anymore. It's kinda far from town, located at ShenKeng, quite an outskirt area. Hmm.. I have been praying at 福德宫 for almost 2 years though.. 
That last evening in Taipei, I sat quietly in my room, lighted up my cigarette, asking myself why the hell I want to leave MAS, a big change of my life, MAS has been my routine for 5.5 years, even now I still can feel the pain of leaving all these memories behind. The first time, I felt the fear, uncertainty, unsureness about my future. Is the new company is gonna take me further? Will I be able to grow in a new working environment? 

Last trip with MAS, 2 nights in Kuching, Sarawak.
The day view and the night view, I had so many chances to appreciate the beauty of this view for 5.5 years. But now, I can only imagine by seeing these pictures. That very last night, I realized, I would never ever go to Kuching again, simple logical thought, if I were to go for holiday, Kuching will not be my or any of my friends' and family's idea. If I ain't got you MAS, I would not have visited Borneo. There will never be TWU, SDK, BKI, LBU, MYY, SBW, KCH in my memory. Though I can only be a narrow-body cabin crew in MAS, I am still thankful to you MAS.. 

 Decided to leave my footstep for very last time in Kuching..

My last picture in MAS uniform. 

And what else? I moved on.. Didn't look back as my class with AirAsia X started 3 days right after my last trip in MAS.

And so! AirAsia X, my new company to fly with. Before I could get the flying license, classes and exams, assessments must be gone through. Days by days, woke up early in the morning, drove all the way to AirAsia Academy which located nearby LCCT without failed.

Days were busy, super contended, I was only busy studying most of the time for the past 1.5 months. Tired, but I was happy. A new environment, everyone (almost) is young, I feel like I am young still. LOL.

Inevitably, stress, fatigue, tension all came along as final exam approached. I am glad that I pulled things through and eventually graduated and now have done my first SNY. Two more to go before flying solo. So so much more to learn and digest.

Forgot to mention, year 2014, new job, and also... NEW CAR! Nissan Almera bronze gold with Impul bodykit. My first car lol.

Greetings, I am Crason, a flight attendant in AirAsia X. I am no longer a narrow-body crew like I used to be. Now I am flying further and there will be no domestic sector in my roster anymore. My company says Now Everyone Can Fly Xtra Long. Please join me to Xperience and Xplore the world. Yay!
