Hi , my name is Mun Mun and I’m 18 this year, freshly graduated from secondary school last year .Unlike the other shortlisted bloggers, I don’t have a lot of experiences and knowledge to share .I have no flying experience, not even those travelling in plane .The only thing I can share is my aspiration to be a pilot .My first time to visit the airport was in the age of six .I live in Kuala Kangsar ,Royal Town of Perak ,the nearest airport to my house is in Ipoh .That day , my great grandmother came back from China and my father had to go to Ipoh Airport to fetch her back.At that time , I drew a total grand of zero idea in my mind about pilots.In the airport , the most familiar object to me were the aeroplanes . My father put my little brother and me at a higher altitude to let us saw the planes clearly .There was a plane landing and my father told us that my great grandmother was in the plane .I got nothing about flying from my father .
When I was in standard six , I felt very regretted that I couldn’t get a fresh memory about airport because the Hong Kong Airport looked so grand in the drama series , “Triumphs In The Skies “.Actually , Sam in the drama had brought me to the glamour world of pilots. Since I was utterly ruthless in my determination to be a pilot , I am always thirst for gaining the knowledge about flying.My first exposure to aviation knowledge was in my Form Four year .At first I could explain why an aeroplane can fly constantly in the sky.This was an apparent reason to unravel why I understand Newton’s First Law well.I became active in the physics class when we were going through Chapter 3 in Form Four physics which was about Bernoulli’s Principle .I was the first volunteer to answer my teacher ‘s question in class .Before that , my teacher could only get the reply by calling someone’s name .I could answered him as he had made a funny example to explain how the plane take off.He taught us to cut polystrene into two streamline shape and tied on both hands .When the motorcyclist was speeding , quickly opened our hands and we would manage to fly.His action to show how to fly is really funny and it made me remember the scene till now.He is a legend in our school whose students passed the physics exams mostly with “cukup makan”.Luckily , I got an A2 for the SPM physics paper.
“Ok class , can yous explain why an aeroplane can fly ?”
“Bernoulli’s Principle lo!”
“Absullent!”(Actually is excellent , he pronounce wrong)
I made my second visit to the airport this year .But , I went to Penang Airport this time.I got my first time to meet with many real airline pilots.I could not express my feeling that time by words.I stood beside the door and many pilots walked past me.I was very excited and shouted in my heart “I want to take photo with them !”My idols near to me ,had driven me crazy.It was the very first time I felt myself so close to my dream and I started to wonder when can I achieve my ambition .
I used my first salary which I earned by teaching tuition to buy a joystick.I started my pilot simulating life three months ago .Although I am a newbie , I have a great passion to know and learn about flying .My hobby is reading the future pilots’ blogs.I tried my best gooogle for the related blogs and linked myself to those blogs.Who are interested to these blog kindly search them yourself .And to the bloggers ,please forgive me for being such a crazy person .Actually reading the blogs will help you a lots in getting a better view on aviation , choosing a flying academy and knowing some flying instructors .This is a boon to help you remember yourself what is the do and don’t when you are flying with the instructors one day.
I had already planned well for my future before I graduated .But life won’t always go in our ways .Air Asia had lighten up my plan with the cadet pilot selection and this blogging competition .Air Asia is really a Good Samaritan in my life to lend me a hand to help me achieve my dream.Actually , it is my 2nd entry for this blogging competition .This article was vary from the previous one which I noted down all the words just following my heart .There is no organization before I started to write this article .I write this article smoothly because it just dawned on me .I just returned from Ipoh and I saw a plane flying in the night sky and I started to imagine again .
“Seize the chance !”I grumbled in my heart, along my journey went home.
