(Caution: lots of vulgar words below. Read at your own risk)
A quick one. Just wanna share something that happened recently, on my flight ex-Kuching in Borneo en route to Johor Bahru, located in the Southern part of West Malaysia.
I was standing at my station during the embarkation process when a passenger, a lady passenger, a fit early 30's lady passenger (I like to be precise here) approached me. She was carrying 2 big bags along. One, a cabin wheel bag, prolly similar size to my trolley bag and a box of same size.
The conversation went on like this:
She: Bro, take these 2 bags to the compartment. (For f**k sake, where is your 'excuse me', 'can you please help me......'?)
(Dik, letak 2 beg ni kat atas)
OK, I still can bargain her rudeness and helped her despite the dictatorship value that she showed me. But heck, I cannot! I realized the 2 bags were FREAKING FUCKING SUPER DUPER HEAVY!!! OK pardon my language, but I can't help it.
The wheel bag was roughly 10kgs and the box, from which later I learned containing Sarawak Kek Lapis was weighing no less than 15kgs. ARE YOU SERIOUSLY FUCKING KIDDING ME??? You know that the maximum weight of a cabin bag is 7kgs only and a passenger can only carry ONE (ONE = 01) and she certainly had exceeded the baggage allowance.
Realizing that I cannot perform the task, I told her..
Me: Can you help me push the bag. It's too heavy for me. (Boleh tolong saya tolak beg ni tak? Berat lah!)
She: Come on...those bags are not heavy. Can't you do it yourself? (Ala dik.....beg tu ringan je. Takkan nak suruh akak tolong kot....)
Me: (Dalam hati: Mafucka.....kalau dah tau beg tu ringan, kau angkat sendiri, bukan kau mintak aku tolong. Plus those are your bags, neither one of it belongs to me. Hence they are your responsibilities. I can be ignorant there and do my own things without acknowledging you. But I DID NOT. BECAUSE I care about my image, and the image of the company that I carry)
I surrendered and a colleague helped me.
And guess what? This UNGRATEFUL lady passenger, merely gave me a look and continued reading her newspapers after the event WITHOUT any courtesy to say 'thank you' or whatsoever.
How to say she is another typical ASIAN passenger that I had to deal everyday at work.
Please, if you are traveling on board, try to put yourself in our shoes. Cabin crew. Regardless which airlines you flying with.
Say, we have to do 4 sectors that day (e.g Kuala Lumpur - Penang - Kuala Lumpur - Singapore - Kuala Lumpur), imagine for each sector, passengers behaving like this, what will happen to our back bones, the crew back bones? Yeah, at certain extent, we do have to think about this too! Kalau beg kau ringan, boleh lah nak ditolong, kalau 10 passenger dengan beg yang berat gile babi, ditambahkan dengan attitude yang stink, memang jahanam la tulang belakang crew tu.
This is one of the differences between Asian and Caucasian behaviors that we, the crew, see everyday at work.
I am sorry, but this is true. I myself an Asian, and I like to remind myself not to be like those typical Asian passengers when I go for a trip.
And by all means I do not practice favoritism but I do believe those Caucasians are simply cultured people. They know how to say thank you! As simple as that!
So, jangan tanya apsal kalau layan mat saleh lebih which aku rase statement yang sangat tak accurate.
I wish I can write more, but I'm sick thinking of the bags event. I better rest a bit.
I was everywhere in town yesterday. Looking for my DocMart boots. Ended up couldn't find the one that I'm looking for. How unbelievable? I used to think that KL has everything ;( And later I went to Zara. Really love this one pair of jeans. But heck.....my size was non avail. Grrr.........
Heya Hi. I am back in KL. Home sweet home. How are things on your side? And for those in Malaysia, how was the long weekend?
I hope it is not too late to wish everyone a very Happy Diwali nal Valtukal. May you have a peace, harmony and wonderful year ahead. ***Ohh...the 'laddoo' made special for Diwali Day that we served on flight was damn good. Any idea where to get good laddoo in KL? Brickfield area or at Jalan Masjid India?
Anyway, I will upload the pics from my EuroTrip later in the upcoming entries (now I remember this is like a cliche where I keep telling readers that I will share the story and photos from my travels 'later' but realized that I never deliver :p).
But for now, let's check out these items.
Been dreaming about for the past few days. I woke up at night, thinking of these toys. How nice if they could become mine.
1-Leica M7 limited Edition Hermès
O Lord, I'm crying just to see how beautiful human has made this stuff. Look at the Orange color. It is so me!
It is not just a camera, it is a fashion statement.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
And guess, how much is the damage? Close to 8500 Pound Sterling =\
But heck, if one's can afford Audemars Piguet and Richard Mille watch worth 30,000 Pound, why not for the camera?
But mind you, this Leica is a limited edition of 200 units only available worldwide and model ni dah lame. Came out year last year, so I believe model ni dah abes. As for me, memang la tak mampu. The price of the camera equals to my salary for one year! I simply cannot afford this brand. Even the small compact D-Lux 4 model.
But say I can buy this camera, it won't be for my daily usage, but more to future investment.
Oh money, please come to me.
2- Dr. Martens 8-eye leather boots
I know ramai yang akan buat mata when they read this. Boots ain't for me. And it won't be normal if I wear boots. So mat rempit. So mamat Oi and Punk.
Whatever it is, I must tell you that I fell for these boots!
Samalah dengan my hi-cut Converse. At the very beginning, I must admit that I did not feel comfy in hi-cut sneakers and even people around me had noticed that! But as time passed by, I started to feel alright! It is not that bad or rempit actually!
But this one is for sure. I'll get myself a pair of this anytime soon. The damage is USD120. More or less RM500.
You know, when you keep on dreaming and thinking of something, that means u just gotta have it.
But the problem is, aku nak pakai apa dengan boots ni heh? What goes well with the boots? For sure bukan dengan shorts yang short macam my wardrobe staple? Geez....tak kesah. Janji aku ade satu.
