We had another candidate in mind but we like your guts and you are number three to be shortlisted. Give yourself a pat on the back and the kick in the **** for being so audacious. You’re now one step closer to your dream. Congratulations.
After looking at Mr Chee Keong and Ms Daphne, I cannot leave this blog entry till this weekend! (I’m typing from work now and will continue on till late night).
While waiting for your cadet program call (closed at 13-Mar-09), I feel this would be a better way to gain entry.
I’m a man with few words, I don’t really fancy typing lots of words with prefect spelling and English, cos I know formality is not part of AK, you guys have that style I love~* (e.g. Career Progression opportunity – we mean it!, No Pangkat-Pangkat things, just respect and so on)
I’m just a straight-forward fella. I believe that honesty, without lies, I can get through anything, and I wanna prove all my friends wrong that there’s still good people in the world.
Of course, somehow I gotta prove why I wanna be a pilot eh? (Love those colourful planes, can I design for them in the future?)
Yay, yes. I really love planes with cool body-art. It’s something other airline wouldn’t want to do. One of the reasons for AK choice. (OK, some airline had done although Magaret Thatcher lambasted the company as shaming the country, there’s other as well, but I support art-work stuff)
What thrills you being a pilot? No, not the gals. You don’t need to be a pilot to get girls.
In my whole life, I wanted to become many things. Some I’ve tried and some I’ve yet to reach.
. I’ll upload it here! for related pictures below =)
-waiter ( la comida esta bien? andiamo fara pranso? andiamo a mangiare? )
-barista (my favourite would be ice grande hazelnut latte)
-chemist (part of my final year lab, super happy bout my results)
-car designer, WOO! (nice huh my Supra?)
-someone in some uniform (I was the Asst. Troop Leader for Scouts 104th Division in Selangor, small family but a real close one to me)
-someone who can draws manga (I only draw girls though)
-b.boy (with style~* watch me groove~*)
-an engineer(Engineers are trained to think systematically) for my dad (he’s proud of me although he don’t say much). Being one now and I know in a long run, I will be some rich 5-figure earning machine. It’s a nice place and stable, but I wouldn’t forgive myself if I don’t try my best to reach my dreams.
-a good brother (with backup, I have a twin brother to help me yay)
*note: ok, she might be the only issue I WILL sacrifice my pilot stint (her bf is a pilot so I guess I have the same mindset as her current love). She ain’t heavy (maybe a little) but she’s my responsibility.
I wish I have like 10-15 lifetime so I can do whatever I want fully, but if I could have all those extra lives, in all of them they will have one common dream :
No matter how far my other side-goals in life turn out to be.
Since childhood I have dreams to fly, to Aussie to be exact. I’ve been there ONCE at 1990, and love the plane ride. My aunt stays there, and told me one thing. If you can save RM1000, I will bring you to Australia again to enjoy. That was 1991, and by 1994, saving RM10 each week cycling to the bank, I’ve managed to save RM1000. My standard 5 trip was one of the trips I will never forget, as it’s been like a dream come true. But I know this wouldn’t last, and the more I think about it the more I want to be a pilot, cos I know my family couldn’t afford many flights to overseas (I can count with my fingers how many time I flew). My dad told me that Maths is the key to everything. My results for Maths are the best among all other subjects. After Form 5, I went to Form 6, and there is the point where I gave up due to my spectacles. So I opt for the next best thing, being an engineer, chemical engineering to venture into Oil & Gas so I can travel more. Upon graduation, I found out airline companies wouldn’t discriminate against 4-eyed people. I was thrilled to find that out and applied. My 1st attempt failed.
Ok, I’ve might have fail once (you can read it at My Old Post) (FINAL STAGE!), but that doesn’t stop me from trying again and again. Yeah, it broke my heart into thousands of shards, but I will prove to my other finalist in the interview that even Yang, can be a pilot! I take it an experience in life. Some slight wing stalls won’t doesn’t make me fall. I’ve tried to ask my other unsuccessful batch mate to join me trying AK, but they all gave up entirely or went into other field (I understand how heart-broken a simple “No” can be). Then again you guys can question why am I not doing it privately? I cannot afford anymore as my Degree ate up my Auntie’s fund. My dad is retired and my mom is not really there since I was young.
If you want me to tell you why I wanna be pilot and my lifetime stories, the post might be long and nobody will read it at the way I want you guys to understand. Bring me in, I would tell you why I want to be one. To see the rising of the moon, learn how to astro-navigate, Announcing (In Bahasa and English!) over the speakers, to see Japan (future routes =D) and eat their hard-boiled eggs in Hokkaido, visiting my Auntie in Aussie, shopping at HK, landing with cross-winds, get A380′s ratings, eat that Nasi Lemak of AK and there’s so many adventures that I want to live.
I would want to swear my oath with you guys, even be a luggage person for a month or two, or anything under the sun, just to show how determine I am, to prove myself that I will dedicate myself to both being a pilot and be faithful with AK. And I only have one life to commit to, so might as well be the one I desire the most.
Anti 9-5 job scope
No discrimination for gender
That’s all I ask for.
I believe that with hard work, and lots of reading and determination is everything, with your own values added. I can do it, alongside with them. No hassles.
It’s a known fact that every pilot does not regret the path they choose, and deep down, it’s something everyone reading this blog wants to be. Everyone would say piloting is :
-Spelling P-I-L-O-T? (everyone seems to be typing that)
Nothing can stop me from Midas’ Touch. I’m sure I have all the qualities you guys seek :
-I’m very hardworking, I don’t mind harsh training and yearly training for ratings. (I work part-time a lot)
-I’m a very responsible person, I don’t drink(or rarely, better word) nor smoke
-I’m quite serious when it comes to job, otherwise I can your best friend!
-I’m VERY good at Maths (love maths, I give Maths/Add Maths tuition when I was in uni life)
-I’m honest, straight-forward (this might not be good sometimes)
-I’m good at handling stress (my dad got a stroke attack, 3 months after my grandma passed away)
-I speak prefect Bahasa and English (I don’t know why, but I speak otai Bahasa, maybe cos I can’t do my Mandarin)
-I love serving people (waiters, baristas, promotion works etc.)
-I have a back-up (ok, he’s just a twin, but he’s always there)
Of course it wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t mention anything bad right?
-I’m bad with girls (I get shy too often)
-My family ain’t the “prefect” ones (but as long as I’m with hands and legs, I smile)
-I eat a lot ( challenge me in kfc, 8pcs)
-I can’t speak Chinese (save Hokkien)
-I have yet to sit any AK, FD, QZ, D7 flights (the closest would be fetching my friend to LCCT to catch a flight to Medan)
With my 100% Sincere heart,
Yang (Low in this blog)
25 years 3 months
