Hey, guys! I’m back with the second episode of ‘My first time Flying ’. From the reaction I got after episode #1 i’m comforted that this doesn’t only happen to me and with that i declare myself a normal person 😀
For those who are yet to share, why not whisper to me your little embarrassing story on the comments box below? I promise I won’t tell anyone 😉
In this episode, i’ll talk about two crucial issues and also revisit my snobbish seatmate’s little quirky behavior. Stay with me.
Toilets in the plane? I was wondering why people were walking around inside a moving flight. Since curiosity killed the cat and didn’t want to be a victim, I got out of my seat to see for myself. I found a queue at the back of the plane. To my amusement, it was a bathroom. You mean we have bathrooms in aircrafts?
You must forgive my ignorance because I only used Google during class assignments. You should have seen me when I entered the bathroom. I was aw-shucks, clicking every button to see what happens next. Everything seemed like a movie.
I flashed twice and was startled by the pressure sound, not water like normal toilets back home.
In-flight Entertainment Screen
Perhaps i could catch the day’s news here, i thought to myself. Like everybody else, I had been given a pair of headset by the lovely cabin crew. Now it was time to use them.
Can you imagine I couldn’t figure out where to plug them? I searched and searched in vain. Again I feared to ask my grim-faced neighbor. I mean, i had used computers before but this was ahead of my game.
I didn’t own an iPad or tablet then but at least I was convinced if I touched the palm-size screen it’d respond. I touched here and there and since I could only see and not hear, I gave up again and slept instead.
My seatmate finally speaks
A few minutes to midnight our lovely captain reminded us that we were approaching Doha (HIA). Looking down from my window I was greeted with this beautiful city lights.
My seatmate also took a quick glance and for the second time (first was a deep voiced ‘Hi’ ) he said ‘Isn’t it beautiful? I have not seen another city with such a beautiful landing view like Doha. Well, I nodded in agreement. How could I know when it was my first time in the skies?
To more love and laughter,
