World Famous Nasi Lemak

So turned out I had another opportunity flying with Malaysia Airlines but it’s such a huge different from previous one. For 1) I had an overnight flight. And 2) I was on different fleet. So the seating and entertainment system differ. I’d say this is a way better flight even though it’s an overnight one, which I always despise.

Let me start with the cabin crews. I’ve come to a conclusion that Asian airlines have the most polite cabin crews. I don’t fly business, nor would I ever buy a business class ticket. Even so, I’d love to be treated at least in a decent manner. I’m not asking for a business class smile… (maybe it’s similar to this 🙂 but a hundred times sweeter) 😚 just serve my food like you enjoy it… mihmihmih

We departed at almost midnight and so it’s sleep time for me. Unfortunately, I don’t sleep well on planes no matter how exhausted I am. There always light coming in my way and that icy coldness I couldn’t stand. I always end up getting a runny nose in flights so… there are tissues everywhere ha ha. I tried to clean up my area so the person next to me doesn’t feel disgusted! Since it’s already midnight, we get a snack box which they called Sky Snack (thought you might wanna know…?) I didn’t take a picture of it because I don’t want to disrupt the old man next to me eventhough I dying to do so T.T 

We had a muffin, tuna sandwich and a oat bar in the box and of course refreshments to wash them down. I was starrrrrrr…ving so I finished all except muffin. I wanted to have it with a nice cup of hot tea but I couldn’t get one because of turbulence. So i waited and waited…. until the muffin is all cold and dry and I dozed off.

I woke up to a beautiful view of the moon in the sky and the smell of breakfast. Our breakfast was nasi lemak , a famous Malaysian dish. It’s composed of rice, prawns, chilli paste, fried anchovies and hard-boiled egg. It was delicious! While it might not live up to the actual taste in Malaysia, I think it’s a good one for a flight meal. Again, there’s a turbulence so I couldn’t request a hot tea. And I still keep my dry muffin…until I gave up waiting and in the end, finished it. Sad muffin story. Turned out, the turbulence took up most of the flight time and my awake time so that’s why I never get my cuppa 😦

The in-flight entertainment is better than the last one I had. I watched Home, an animation movie, and it’s really the highlight of my time onboard! So hilarious and I literally had to press my mouth to not make any loud ugly laughing sound but it’s really funny! 😂😂😂 Anyways, the movie and tv show selections are enough to make myself indecisive. I only watched one movie and I didn’t finish it because they shut the entertainment system before landing. That means around 30mins not doing anything on the plane! Well, I could read but I still want my in-flight entertainment to go on. Heads up, they collect all headphones before preparation to land. But I use my own earpods to watch the movie.. until they shut it down 😦

Onboard Malaysia Airlines

1)Incheon Airport is huge, but I didn’t have enough time to explore every nook and cranny. If anything, I’d like the toilet to have more cubicles (but it’s too late for any layout changes now 😴)

If you find yourself at Incheon Airport sometime soon, go to the second floor. They have a tourism centre where you can try out traditional clothes and there’s a background of Korean house if you wanna take a photo! Too bad I was rushing for my flight.

2) In case you didn’t know, Malaysia Airlines was in two major air disasters last year, both resulted in loss of all lives onboard and their 777 planes. I bet you know, it was all over the news. I remembered myself feeling so traumatised by the news and I cried because I don’t think I can fly anymore. My breakdown went on for a few days…..before I embark on another last-minute holiday. Err..what are the tears for?

Anyways, I was onboard B777. It looks old, but I don’t mind as long as it’s safe to fly. Even the entertainment system is tricky. I looked around, everyone wasn’t so sure as well. It was a daytime flight, so eventhough I was sleepy like cray cray, it’s hard to sleep during the day. The seating is 2-4-2. I requested a window seat. And I hoped no one is sitting beside me. Too bad 😦 But he’s nice and we’re already friends on facebook ha ha! The seats are ok, well-padded and just nice for a girl with an average height. I will be concerned about the leg room for a tall person though. The guy beside me is really tall, but he is skinny so that’s a huge phewww for him, from me.

The cabin crew are quite friendly. Their service is fine. I mean what do I expect. I fly economy, not business. The flight meal was nice. I got a chicken pasta. May I add that everything onboard Malaysia Airlines is halal, just like the Middle Eastern airlines. I’ve flown this route with Malaysia Airlines before, and I must say that the flight meal used to be more than what I got the last time. I could put aside some snacks so I can have it later. Now I can finish everything in a go. Or, was I just hungry? hurmm…

Anyways, I’ve finished everything but I tried to eat sloww–ly but continuously. Because there’s a guy next to me who didn’t even finish his food…. it’s either he’s full or he just doesn’t eat much, which, judging from his size, I pretty much think it’s the latter. Which also makes me either… too hungry or I just eat a lot… and I pretty much think both are true mih mih.

Overall, I like their service, flight meals and movies choice. I just hope that they provide a wide variety of drinks. And I’d be grateful if they could provide the headset at the very beginning (although I can just use my earpods– I just knew– the guy told me) and don’t collect them before landing. In fact, let us enjoy the entertainment contents even after landing, until taxiing or until we feel like leaving the airplane.

I will fly Malaysia Airlines one more soon to my next destination. Hope it’s a good one 🙂

3) I was in KL Airport for a good 6 hours+ layover and took some time to explore the area. There are so many chocolates but I didn’t get any,I don’t want to carry anymore extra bags. But, there is a promotion at Victoria Secret…! It’s such a good deal, so I got myself some body mists. These ones, I don’t mind one more bag. Then, I killed the remaining time at Harrods Cafe. I of course got a nice cup pot of tea, yum ❤

IMG_0040Let us focus at the promotion, ma’am :p

Obligatory shot by someone who can only afford a drink at Harrods 😦

p/s: more Seoul posts coming!

First time with Etihad!

Such a long overdue post. And I’ve been talking about London quite a lot now. I visited over a year ago and I just felt like reliving the memories. Hence, this post!

I went there in winter, and I have to recommend this. Yes, go to Europe in winter! The tickets are so cheap you can just buy the ticket on a whim and jet off the next day! Kidding but I kid you not, it is cheap (esp for people travelling from Asia). So, my flight tickets costed me….. $700! more or less. Now, maybe $700 is not cheap for some people, but I live far from the Europe, more than 12hrs flight away. So it is quite reasonable for me 🙂 I travelled with Etihad from my home country. I always travelled with my national airline before, so that was my first experience on another airline. My verdict? Awesome airline!

They are amazing. I always travel economy, but this! This was a whole different level. They treated you really nice and their seats are huge. I have a normal Asian size and physique, so that might be why it felt so big and cosy for me hiks! It felt like a sofa. Very comfortable and can be reclined enough for a good sleep (deep sleep I must add). I’m pretty sure that was A330 I was in. I enjoyed my flight meals as well. Too bad, I didn’t take pictures of my flight meals. I’ve always wanted to compile all the flight meals I had in ALL my flights because I don’t get to travel often because I’m only free on semester breaks and let’s be honest, students have no money 😦 Anyways, it was good. But my biggest regret was that I requested for a low calorie meal. So they didn’t give me the delicious normal meal like the person next to me is having. They substituted with a lot of fruits and bread (healthy ones I think) and basically more fruits…. It’s really my fault that I asked for low cal. Thank god that was just supper. The next morning, they gave us a tasty breakfast and thank GOD! they gave me the same meal as what the others were having. That’s weird.. but they didn’t give me low cal! Ha ha I forgive you for that.

The cabin crew were friendly. Until now, I’ve tried other airlines but I still think that Etihad has the nicest cabin crews. They are the prettiest too! Hehe. I remembered having sickness and I asked for warm milk and paracetamol. They served me right away and checked for my condition a few times afterwards. They gave my milk in a nice mug! I so appreciate it because I got served in a small plastic cup with no handle, the milk’s up to the brim and quite hot to hold. That’s another airlines but you get my comparison now? I had a red-eye flight to Abu Dhabi for my stopover. I had sleep, watched fun movies and tv shows on the entertainment sections and I landed with a happy tummy.

Sadly, Abu Dhabi Airport is a huge let-down. I only stayed in one terminal, so there were limited stores and restaurants. I had to go to a cafe to get a seat, only to be served with a horrible vanilla latte. Such a huge let-down because I was really hungry, I needed coffee to stay awake and beat the time difference and because it costs me $6. I’m a student, even a small amount is precious 🙂  Anyways, I may have to come back because I would love to fly with Etihad again. Only can hope the airport is better now!
