Time’s up. It’s flying pretty fast. Especially if you’re spending time with your loved ones.

My wife helped me packed the bags and we were at the airport just in time. Thanks to Aliya for printing up the online boarding pass.


I sorely miss her.


The flight return was pretty smooth. AirAsia has demonstrated a few things:

  1. Safety briefing. It was spot on and clear. They didn’t have to repeat it.
  2. Service. I didn’t have to prod the flight attendants this time. Maybe it’s not an apple-to-apple comparison since the flight was in wee hours when all you wanted to do was sleep.

I do recognize that one of the map features that shows the qiblat/Mecca direction is pretty neat.

They still need to improve on the ergonomics though.
