Merry Christmas everyone! Zinmar loves you!!
The flt to MAN on Christmas day was pretty interesting. Despite dreading, crying (no tears tho) and whining about it. Oh and not to forget, desperately trying to swap it, turned out pretty alright.
The load was half full. Its Christmas for goodness sake! Why were these ppl flying?
The light load allowed me to talk to my passengers and take better care of them. Most of them were gloomy when I stood there with a big smile plastered on my face (no matter how fake) and sang "Good Morning! and Merry Christmas" while boarding. ha! Sad & cynical ppl!
I met this old couple, all the way from Melbourne, conspiring with the son-in-law, planning to barge into their daughter's Christmas lunch to surprise her. How sweet! The lady told me, her son-in-law said "its either this or a cappuccino maker, and we all know which she would like better".
A big South African man who had like 8 Ballantines' from me and still manage to video cam his little daughter running up and down the cabin. They are on the way to his sister's place for Christmas.
But there was also a man traveling all alone, looking rather sad. When I spoke to him I found out that he has been flying non stop from Auckland. Which means Auk - Mel : 3 hrs, Mel - Dxb : 11-12hrs and Dxb - Man : 8hrs, to see his father who had a stroke and is in the hospital. He told me that his mom hasn't been giving him much information on how his dad is doing so he's been calling the hospital and yelling at them. For once, I can say I know exactly how he feels. I spent alot of time chatting with him so he won't sit and worry himself. He smiled at me everytime I walked pass him. Or when I gave this idiot a blank face and shrug when he made an idiotic request, afterwhich I squat down, hidden behind my cart from the idiot and breathe to keep myself calm. He waited everyone to disembark when we reached MAN. I walked up to him and wished him luck and told him to be disgustingly positive like me! Which he laughed and said he would try to return on the same flt as me. :) (Pretty ridiculously positive huh? Travel all this way and stay less than 24 hours. hehe.. its contagious, this positivity!)
I would pray for him if I still depend on God. But I am sure he will be okay. I don't know about his father but no matter who we lose in life, we will still live. We have to. Apart of us will be missing up there will be others to help us go on with life.
F.Y.I : I did not flirt with him. =X

While Ming cooks the sauces, Drue slice the Ham and Cheron prepares the pasta, I dress up, serve my jello shots, tipsy from downing 2 glasses of wine before times up and Emma flutters around and told me that I am doing exactly what she was doing last year while Sheena cooked everything from scratch! What to do? We are social butterflies! hehehehe
Shame Sheena wasn't around. and YY, Linda, Boon, Jeanie and everyone else!
