About Me

I am a cabin crew based in the Middle East, and a Commercial Pilot in progress. I fly approx. 25 civil flights + 10 private flights a month. Before all that, I had been a translator, a tour guide, a tour operator, and the assistant of the Minister of Overseas Community Affairs Council. On top of that, I am also an enthusiast in photography, spirituality, and calligraphy.

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods." - Lord Byron

People say I'm always brave to go for what I love and dream of. However in my opinion, being brave is to do something that one doesn't love about out of the benefit of others. When it comes to justice, I don't compromise, especially of human rights. Moreover, I have some kind of OCD of self-reflecting all the time.

The universe and life have led me to different places. And I believe it's "Maktub (written/destined)".

I had visions of white bright eyes watching me whenever I was in the forests, and I ended up studying forestry; I have been having an emotional and spiritual connection with the oceans, and I ended up sailing with Greenpeace for two good years; I had visions of being an eagle all the time since childhood, and now I'm flying as a full-time cabin crew + part-time pilot.

I love chaotic places - as they tell wonderful stories of life, and they are lives.
