Bla bla bla…


It’s 18mins past 2 midnight when I decided to blog. Well, am currently lying on the bed with my laptop on my lap listening to Yui’s. Many ideas coming into my mind but they don’t stay long. So it might be a random post with random content.

Alright, let’s start off with the happenings recently. It’ll be my 5th month here in Malacca on the 11th this month. I have to say I have pretty much adopted. When I first entered I thought “why is the time passing so slow? I want to fly!!!” and now flashing back, time does fly! I couldn’t believe I’ve actually been here for almost 5months and hey! I’ve finished almost one-third of the course! (EXCITED!!!) I’ve met people with different walks of life as well. There’s people who spent their youth working and finally saved enough money to take-up piloting. There’s those who are bonded by the Airasia as well but the numbers are distinctively small. I’ve met people far off my range of age as well which goes up to 27 or so which in turn, is a good thing as I get to share their experience.  I must say I’m sick with the humanity they possess. They could act like they were right the whole time or seem to know everything. It’s sickening! If I haven’t been exposed to Christianity since young I might have gone off limits and blow some of their heads off! Which in turn having me myself as a scapegoat. I’ve learnt not to be kind-hearted to the others as they only take benefits out of you. But of course, not all of them are the same, there are the trustworthy ones.

Moving out of my comfort zone all the way from Kuching to Melaka has widened my view towards the humans. Not trying to be arrogant or offensive but I don’t see the reason why some of them are here. There are people who deserve more to take-up piloting. It’s an honourable profession but people like them could spoil the image of pilots. There is no such thing as a free lunch. No pain, no gain. You’re not gonna ‘pop~!’ and become a pilot by not putting effort. Before I came in here I had the wrong perception that piloting was easy. All I needed to do is just fly. But I was wrong, deeply. It has the price to pay to be able to join the family of one of the top professions. But the price isn’t something normal humans can’t do – EFFORT. Yes effort! You can pray for every minute every day but you won’t be getting what you’ve been praying for by just sitting there and wait. I believe there’s Christians who have wrong idea of praying as above too. For the past few weeks, I was truly satisfied for what I’ve worked for. It’s been paid off. I still remember the first day I started flying with my instructor, I was so relaxed. Second flight onwards, it all got tensed up every time before the flight. Worrying that I might make certain mistakes. It still goes the same even for now but after each flight, walking out of the aircraft, I was contented, satisfied for I know I have put effort into it and did it well. There’s friend thinking how fun piloting is and complaining how boring and tough their studies is. I must say nothing in the world is easy. It depends how you manage it. If you really work for it, you’ll find the fun in whatever you’re doing as well.

Well, it’s been an hour already since I started. Before I end this, I want to say ‘Thank You Lord’ for HE has been blessing me more and more in each of my everyday life. HE really is an awesome God :)

P/S: Yui rocks!!!

Amazing Grace


                   life-s-enjoyment-thumb7696361 It’s weekends guys! But I believe many are still struggling hard for their mid-term examination. As for me, it ain’t weekends anymore since the shifts started. I still have to report myself on Saturday and Sunday and some times am scheduled to fly. I have no choice but to skip Sunday service as well =(

Anyways, am really thankful for God has led me through the week especially during my hard time. I was so stressed before this because of this this and this but hey! God answered my prayers! HE is really amazing! I see how HE made the impossible possible, made the hopeless confident once more and led me through the hardships. Am reaching my flying hours for solo soon. Pushing myself to meet the expectation. Learnt something from my instructor – Do things EASILY and PRECISELY. The key to obtain perfection though humans make mistakes. But remember, Nothing is impossible in HIM!

Have a good weekends people! :)

Struggle


Well, my flying phase didn’t start off nicely. I was behind schedule from the others for almost two weeks due to: first, less working days (4days a week), second, weather problem and third, aircraft problem which is common here. Some times the aircraft get grounded some times it needs to be overhauled.

Before I started my flying phase, I never thought it would be harder than ground school which I need only to study the books. In flying phase, there’s more to learn than just flying the plane. First thing first, all the checks have to be done precisely. Secondly, the RT (radiotelephony) calls to the ground and tower which is quite bugging me recently and thirdly, performance in flight as in taking over control of the aircraft. That’s basically three majors perspective.

I must admit I’m bad at recognising landmarks. There’s still time I get airborne and I don’t know exactly where I am! Not to say trying to hold the pitch and maintaining wing’s level in flight. Besides that, the RT calls! I feel my adrenaline rushes every time I try to contact the tower or ground. It gets worse when the traffic is busy and no lag should be expected to response them. I believe I must have disappointed my instructor today for not performing well and I deeply know where my problem is. I must say rehearsing on ground and doing it practically in flight is two different things! My mind just stuck every time.

Apart from that, I’ve failed one of 4 of the UK papers I had the other day. It really disappoint me and of course my family. I’m really stressed out for the studies as well. There’s a lot of times I cried out loud in myself wanting to go back to my family in Kuching. I really miss them a lot! This thinking never fades but I truly understand this couldn’t be granted and I must strive harder and harder! It’s only 18months training and I believe God has planned it out well. I’ll just stick to HIS plan and keep going. Strengthen me Lord. Strengthen me…

O' Lord


I must say I have an amazing Lord. HE has blessed me when I least expected it.

    For I had been so busy and worried this week, when I thought I couldn't spare time to go for rehearsal for the Saturday night gathering, HE amazingly did spare out the time for me and brought me through this fruitful night. The gathering was a success, seeing friends bringing friends along to hear God's gospel. We have done our part, planting seeds on them, the rest is up to Lord to harvest it :)

    JAA exam is on this Tuesday. 4papers namely VFR coms, IFR coms, Airframe systems and Principle of Flight. I'm just gonna do my part and leave the result to God. Praise HIM in everywhere you are and to God be the glory in everything you do! Way to go ALAN!!! WOOO!!!
