My Flying Fears

I was stunned for a moment when the news of MH370 airplane went missing enroute to Beijing this morning.  Seriously, is this happening to our MAS?  My heart goes out to those involved... hope they will locate the plane soon .....

Many of us love traveling, that includes me naturally but I think most of us do not like taking the flight.  I for one, fear flying...   I really do have a fear boarding a plane and sitting inside for hours and hours that seems unending. 

After so many years of traveling, I still have this habit of taking a tablet before I board a plane.. at least half a pill of Dramamine for longer flights and a quarter for few hours flight.  It makes me feel drowsy and sleep off the endless hours of flight and anxiety.  But I was told that in any event of mishaps or emergencies, I will be in trouble...

The moment the plane starts to ascend, my heart thumps... my imagination at times run wild... I worry that the heavy load of luggage and passengers will be too heavy for the aeroplane to ascend higher and higher... "Our lives are in your hands, Captain." 

I love the descending... my fear will be over soon, I tell myself... once the wheels hit the leeway, I heave a sigh of relief..."Thank you, Captain."

Yes, pray before ascending and give thanks when descending....

  3. This missing flight has been bothering my head and thoughts since morning. I felt sad, confused, worried and had goose bumps all rolled together. Before the list of names were announced, I was a bit shocked to receive messages from abroad asking if I was safe? They said they knew I went to China too frequently.
    My prayers for survivors to be found.

  4. It's all not in the Captain's hands, not in yours or mine...it's all in God's hands. Every flight I take, I would pray in my heart before and during take off...and leave it all to Him...and upon landing, I would say a prayer of thanks. We can drop dead anytime anywhere...if that is what God has planned for us.

    Pray for all involved, Lord have mercy.

  8. I always have such phobia and fear, so every time I fly, I will pray first. And once landed, I will sigh a relief and say my grace for the safe journey and land.

    My prayers go to the victims and families who are involved. Really a shock when I read the news. Could not believe it and up to now, have not been able to locate it. :(

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Mini Birthday Celebration At August Healing, Ipoh

GETTING HEALED AGAIN... this time four of us went to August Healing for other sweet and savoury delights.  This time when we went up to the little cafe, the tables were all occupied except for one.  Next time we must not go during lunch time.  Mistake....  Anyway, we managed to get a table near the window while waiting for another two of my friends to arrive.  First time visit for them and I hope they like the food there as much as I like them.  We ordered three different varieties to share as we had a heavy breakfast in the morning....  Which shall I choose? Berries bread pudding today....  Forgot what this is called....  Garlic honey scones...  Coffee for my friends.... As for me, I had Chamomile tea....  We ordered one croissant to share.... Smoked duck and omelette fillings... Full to the brim... RM15....  Quiche again.... different fillings this time... RM15 And a Happy Birthday piece of cheese cake... RM14.. Though just a few varieties, we were very full.... For dinner, I just ha

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
