This blog offers endless ideas and results; they might be charming most of the times but could be offending in some others. Therefore, it is always noble to remind that if you enjoy the pieces, carry on reading, but if they upset you, do quietly leave like the evening breeze and not like exploding diarrhea, which exactly what you will look like if you ever lose it on me.

Kota Kinabalu International


Back from work. A little too tired, a little too stressed out.

The roommate was not around, well not until Thursday.

Best friend was still on the way back from a mountain-hiking trip which I missed to join.

So I started the Microsoft Flight Simulator program.

Chose a Malaysia Airline Boeing 737-400ER in standard livery.

Chose an airport - WBKK/BKI Kota Kinabalu International.

Chose a terminal parking - passenger ramp no. 4, medium service.

Chose time - 6.30pm, October 19th 2009.

Chose weather condition - fair weather, clear sky with slight clouds.

Ground-maneuvered the plane to a taxiway, facing the setting sun, the beach and the active runway.

Turned off both turbines.

Smoked, drank a cuppa coffee and watched as one MAS and two AirAsia planes in fleet took off.

6.45pm, an Air Asia A320 took off, bound for KLIA

6.55pm, another Air Asia A320 took off, bound for Kuching.

A delayed Malaysia Airlines Boeing 737-400 took off, bound for KLIA

* * *

And then the runway was empty.

And I was still there, looking at the sunset.

And I never felt happier.
