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. :(

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
