a little something

since every now and then, the "company" would send an email reminding us to write something for the "company" blog. so i decided to write a little something for the blog

"Ohana means family. Family means no one is left behind or forgotten". No matter how far or how high we fly, batch 09/2009 will still be our family, we will never left anyone behind or forget anyone. 13 April 2009 will definately be a day for us to remember forever as it is the first day we met each other. At first all of us want the trainning to finish as soon as possible, but in the end none of us want the trainning to end. The instructor, batchmates and almost everyone its like a family already for us.

The trainning life in Malaysia Airlines Academy is not as easy as everyone thinks, the syllabus is well planned for us from induction, grooming, communication skills, aviations, fundamental on hospitality, B737 familirization, safety emergency procedure, inflight observation, service procedure and last but not least our supernumarary flight. grooming was the most fun subject of all since we get the chance for an image make over. we were sent to hair expert to advice us on our hairstyle and later we were sent on a class for grooming as in how to do a great makeup, skin care and such. we also been thought in effective communication in communication skills class. we also get the chance to understand the concept of flight in aviation class. the subject covers from the parts of the aircraft, gmt to theory of flight. i would say that safety procedure has been the most toughest subject in the trainning since it cover from hijacks to first aid. but then again, it is also the most interesting subject of all, since we are expose to survival skills, first aid, handling destructive passenger and such. every now and then we would have examination to test our understanding on every subject, those who failed will need to resit the subject,we would gather together and studied till midnight. we would tutor each other till late. eventhou its hard, our teamwork, friendship and hardship that we learn from each other strive us till the end.

tomorrow marks a new day in our life since we'll be having our last course in our training which the supernumarary flight. this last few days that we will spend together will be remembered forever. good luck everyone.

This 65 days of trainning have been the most longest and the most happiest days of our life. We came in as 16 batchmates and we finish as 1. 09/2009


  1. I always envy the cabin crew training can be that fast and efficient. It wasn't the same for the cadet pilot for the 737 conversion. I don't think 65 WEEKS is even enough to complete it... so much delay...

  2. owh! pilots went for 65 weeks of training eyy... that quite long mann... but in the end i bet you guys are like family dah kan... damn... i really hate goodbyes... there's nothing good in goodbye... hahahah
