Here Alone Munching on M&Ms

9PM, I'm in Singapore now in my hotel room. Just finished writing up a short report of today's meetings. Later I'll probably meet an old friend for drinks and tomorrow I head back to KL. On Tuesday I accomplished another first in my life. I set foot in Brunei! Of course it's work related but surprisingly it was a rather pleasant two days ( I got back late Wednesday). More on that in another post.

Today the cabin crew of AirAsia also pleasantly surprised me. The past few flights saw the normal pouty, rather grumpy young ladies sulking along the aisles. Many of the young 'uns take the brief of "applying personal touches to appearances or being individualistic" by dipping in a colorful palate of make-up, hairstyles and coloring that makes them a shoe in if ever there was a vacancy for Tea Ladies for the Moulin Rouge.

Today, the girls were naturally pretty and sweet. They were chatty and friendly but the best came just before the plane took off when Rihanna came on the piped in radio station and one of the attendants starting moving to the beat and singing along as she walked down the aisle. Not the Salak South Ah Lian Octopus Being Electrocuted moves but the sweet jiggy steps of a Clubbing Babe Who can out dance every Pussycat Doll. Things are looking up AA...

I get back tomorrow afternoon followed by and event in the evening. Wednesday I re-visit Manila after a break of almost 5 years. Wonder how much things may have changed...

Nice... another friend has just text me to go out clubbing. Quiet drinks by the river side or all out prancing (like an octopus being electrocuted) among babes in a chic club? Hmm, what to do.....

ah Brunei, should still be a very quiet peaceful place to visit? everything quiet down by 7pm.

Yeah, in a way tooo quiet PLUS that no booze ruling would not make it easy living there man. Although i hear there are a lot of private parties one can go to to satisfy one's desire for a strong cold beverage.

or you cross the border to either limbang or miri for a beavy or two.

Those air stewardess, am so acccustomed to bad service that my mind's programmed to hate them, i feel awkward when they start behaving nicely. can't win with them bitches.

Ah yes Miri, been a while too since i've hit that town. Spent many a happy hour there after seeing the Brunei cars rolling into town on a friday or saturday evening.

Don't hate on all the crew Sam. they're not all that bad. I know a few air angels out there who are lovely all around. Let's give them some hope or else I would have nothing left to look forward to those 14 hour flights to London. All you can drink booze dont count!

Chindiana said...

1. Chewing or in Possession of Chewing Gum

2. Taking A Shit Without Flushing

3. Dancing In a Public Place amounting to Disturbing Behavior
