15.10.2012 | 空中秘事

[Volume 7 Issue 10, #1568]
呢本書絕對唔係我近期讀過嘅, 因為自從呢個MBA課程之後, 我所讀嘅就只有學術研究, 多納悶呀, 哈哈!! 我其實比較喜歡閱讀啲真實性嘅書(即係non-fiction), 尤其可以揭開一啲背後鮮為人知嘅故事, 就會更加吸引我, 難道係我嘅八卦天性?? 哈哈.. 噚晚喺櫃桶底摷到呢本睇過嘅書, 印象中我甚少寫同書本有關嘅貼(其實係自己少閱讀啦), 之前都係得呢一篇呢一篇咁大把, 所以呢一本可以攝下貼位喎, 哈哈!! 呢本書其實係齊集一啲空務員嘅真實經驗, 一啲我哋身為乘客鮮為知道嘅事, 通通爆晒俾大家知道.. 呢啲平時衣著光鮮, 時常保持專業外表嘅空務員, 究竟背後收藏著咩密事係大家都唔知㗎呢?? 有震撼, 有驚訝, 有香艷, 有挑釁嘅告解同不可告知的秘密, 將呢班空務員嘅另外一面呈現讀者眼前, 真係睇得我欲罷不能~~ 呢個系列仲有其他嘅, 包括"酒店風雲".. :p
this is definitely not a book i have read recently, in fact i have not read any books other than academic articles since i've taken my MBA course, how boring, haha!! i am actually more to reading non-fiction, those that can give me insider insights into things i am curious of are definitely my choice, maybe due to my gossipy nature?? hahaha.. saw this book while i was searching for something from my drawer, realized i rarely write about books (also because i rarely read) besides this and this, so maybe i can write about this book to fill up my post space, haha!! this is a book that gathers real experiences from air-stewards (of course collectively means all stewards and stewardesses), those we being the passengers do not usually know but all revealed in this book.. what are behind these always professional-looking air-stewards?? shocking, saucy, raunchy, scandalous confessions and behind-the-scene stories showing the other sides of these air-stewards that keep me reading~~ they have a few in this series, including "Hotel Babylon" too.. :p

  3. Oooo...that sounds like an interesting book! I have not been reading much lately other than what's online. Eyes get tried easily...maybe I would just read bits and pieces here and there in the reader's Digest, that's about all.

    1. I bought a lot of books too and have yet to read them all. My wife purposely put a shelf beside my bed with all the unread books!!!

      I would like to read that scandalous book SK is reading now!!! Can lend me???

      Delete
    2. I dislike reading, I'm not a book worm. The only books that I read now are comic books. Lots of illustration, less wording. Kekekeke!

      But I don't mind reading that scandalous book of SK~ I'll line up, after TM then it's my turn :)

    3. No, no, no, no no!!!! He is going to send it to me as my prize for being No. 1 for the month of October. Are you not, SK?

    4. you see the tan sri so kan cheong on the book..
      wei do they have the book that talk about the experience in working in Genting casino? I heard a lot of stories on that...

      Delete
    5. LOL...I thought STP mentioned before books are food for cockroaches.

      Good move on your wife part, TM. If she dont put bookshelves of unread books by your bedside sure forever wont read one. Too lazy to go and korek out to read.

      I have a lot of unread books too.

      Now the next Big Bad Wolf sale is coming, I am going to have more unread books. Crazy betul leh rm8 a book . Out side those famous book store is like RM40 a book.

      anyway, I do read them so tak apa la.


      wei, TM if you wan some free read, can go to subang ajaya book exchang programme. every 2 weeks we meet there and drop those books that we dont wanna read and pick up some books that we wanna read. It's very good leh. Can jimat a lot

      They have wide selection of books too. maybe your wife would wanna go and look see look see

      Delete
    6. Hehehehehe!!!! Good luck, all of you! Enjoy buying all the books. Now my missus, no more into Mills & Boons...but will buy lots and lots of recipe books...just to look at the pictures. Never tried to cook anything unfortunately. I wish she would just browse online if she only wants to look - those books can be really really expensive, hard cover, glossy pictures and all. Consoling part - she uses her own money. Hehehehehe!!!!

      Delete
    7. Mills & Boons tak main la. Those are out of date already and story very stale as similar plot everywher.

      Read others like chick-lit, sci-fic , mystery and even drama la. The Lisa See book about Peony In Love is about old China. The tradisional one. That one very best.

      Recipe books very expensive. I have one or two bt dont use. check google lagi senang

      Delete
    8. China setting, I liked Joy Luck Club, Fallen Petals/Chinese Cinderella... India or African setting, some also nice.

      Delete
    9. i think quite interesting to read all those real experiences from the air-stewards and air-stewardesses lah, depending on what you actually like to read, this is sure no fantasy and romance one, haha!!

      oh, Anay and Ah Hua want to borrow?? no problem.. but STP this is a read book lah, not good to give as a present lah~~ :p

      Delete
    10. I want! I want! *throws tantrums!!!* LOL!!!

      Delete
    11. China setting normally very said story leh. Kau beh kau boo one....if you like those books then can try Lisa See Peony In Love and Empress orchid by Ann Chee Min

      SK no good give books ah? then give money lor...can buy books LOL and STP can buy kampua

    2. Nonm-fiction like what type, HS? The memoir type or reference books, DIY , Travel?

      Me if let say non fiction, i would love to read memoir or like this book that SK highlighted. It would be fun to see what happen on air.

    3. I like those Chicken Soup for the Soul books - many meaningful, touching short stories - full of good moral values.

  6. Upon leaving school, I wanted to be a flight steward (I was slim and tall then!) - those days, they picked the best looking ones and I always imagined the life to be so (s)exciting, so much fun...and the pay then was good, dunno now - much better than an office job, without including the allowances and what not.

      But not i dont think so la.

      I rememebr many years ago ther was a japanese drama about training as air stewardess. Many of my school mates wanna join that profession too. Not me la coz i know am too short and not pretty.

      Delete
    4. Ya...starting, you fly East Malaysia - Sarawak and Sabah...then promote to national...and after that, baru international.

      Last time, they sapu all the beauty queens so the air hostesses all beautiful, sexy ones. These days - my cousin, MAS manager, said...as long as can speak English, they take. That's why some look really not nice one...and the English also, half past six one, not good at all.

    3. It's good to have the habit of reading be it fiction or non-fiction. It can actually occupy our time. But it's better to read those books that we are interested rather than boring ones. By the way, that book of yours looks interesting. My girl will surely love to read it. I must find that book in Popular.

      If not forced to, i try not to read from those device.

      ya a lot of free ebooks to download. at Netgalley.com. All those big publishers are giving free ebooks. The only thing we have to do is give them feed back whether we like the books or not.

      Maybe it's to test market la.

      I cant afford ARchie la. School time read Gila gila and Batu api comics aje. Exchange with my school mates but have to be careful so that the pengawas wont see. Kept at the school canteen LOL.

    2. Yes, yes...when you have young children, your interests would be the same as theirs - their songs, their tv shows, their movies.... Bonding!!! Gets you all closer to one another and that's good.

      Can't understand some parents (dads especially) who cannot remember which class the kid is studying, the day he or she was born - not that they have one dozen of them like people in the past, just one or two. What kind of parenting is that?

I don't read anymore but those days when I did, I always handled nicely and then recycled - gave them away as Christmas or birthday presents. Hehehehehehe!!!!

    7. LOL...u sure that one is books or magazine leh?

      Yan, now kids dont read enid blyton anymoore la.They like those vampire stories like Twilight series, Darren Shan series, Artermis series.

      Lina, SP dare not download manga mah...later kena virus or kena Fui Fui sees then he cham liao lor.

      TM, LOL...40boxes can rival me la. But sure your wife's books are those serious topic not like muy rubbish topics one hahaha.

      STP, its because we bookworms loves books. They may turn yellow or smelly or even have silverfish goldfish and cockroaches food but we till love them. If ones know how to keep and store the books properly they wont be smelly and have silverfish.

      some books when it's open, it bring back memories. Just like photos.

      The yellowish and all that it give character to the books. Something that others wont understand.

      Same thing with kampua noodles . Those who doesn't eat noodles they would say it's nothing special. But for someone like you who knows how to enjoy a good plate of kampua, you will think differently.

    8. I like reading...or at least, I used to...but eyesight not so good anymore. Have to read in daylight...those artificial light - lamps and bulbs, not bright - cannot see...too bright - eyestrain...blurring. One reason why I stopped teaching - cannot mark essays at night and no time during the day - have to do this and that.

      Another reason, of course, is...the books are getting too expensive...even though I will still fork out the money for my daughter. She loves reading! Doesn;t spend on other stuff so much so it is ok.

    9. Ya that was how my eye sight got spoilt apart from watcging TV too near.

      That is why i prefer reading book that reading using those ipad, handphne and etc.

      I buy books i will see the font. Nowadays, some publisher/author kedekut. Wanna jimat paper or what. Make the font too tiny.

      If see thoose tiny font i wont buy lo

      AT the rate am reading, that is why i have to go for the second hand bookshop like Paylessbooks RM10 can get 5 or 6 fictions books, or those like Big Bad wolf sale RM8/fiction.

      If your daughter happen to be in KL during December then can go for that sale la. really worth it

    1. I have many friends are air stewardesses. I heard plenty of stories from them. Their life is very havoc, exciting, lots of exposure one.

      I agree with SP, after knowing all their hidden stories, SK wishes to be one of the crew or pilot eh! Kekekeke!

      Delete
    2. I have friends who are air stewards. Hmmm...I wonder if they have interesting stories to share... Hehehehehe!!!!

      When I was younger, I also had friends in the airline but they seemed quite bored of it all. Nothing exciting at all...and those with families end up having all kinds of problems.

  23. SK,
    I like non-fiction too! Love historic books - lately am reading through a few about the history of Malaya/Malaysia, the Malay Sultanate and stuff, independence story and stuff (I never blog about this, like ever, do I? ^^) and of course books on running - technical books and autobiographies too.

    Not into chick-lit or romance but I do enjoy fantasy books and mystery books. :)

    1. Oh really ah?

      You like non-fiction only ka, Lina? what about fiction about Malaya? Have you tried the books by local author Khoo Kheng Hor? Try read "Taikor", "mamasan", "Nanyang" , Four sided Tower and SIfu. These are his books. I like it very much. about the happenings before and after japanese occupation.

      Delete
    2. Try out Tilly Bagshawe books which bear title starting with "Sidney Sheldon's...." Her writing is very similar to Sidney sheldon books . But her chick-lit not that good.

      Delete
    3. Sidney Sheldon last time nice. Then his books got banned everywhere so he toned down...not nice anymore after that.

    4. he died already lah...now he is down 6ft under liao .

      Last time i gila sidney sheldon and jefrey archers books but after archer come out from jail the books like tarak best liao. Nothing much

      Guess at one time or another some author just cant churn out the same good quality of book over and over again la.

      Hey...for those who like emotional books , can try Nicholas Sparks.. His book The Last Song really kesian one. I really love and hate Nicholas sparks books. Always have ironic and a bit sad ending.

    5. Never liked Jeffery Archer. Mine were Sidney Sheldon or Harold Robbins. Like Jackie Collins too. All the hiao punya books... Hehehehehe!!!!

  24. Normally, girls love romance - Mills and Boons, Barbara Cartland. Really those stories - always the guy older, a filthy RICH widower...and the girl, young and innocent, employed to take care of the kids or to tutor them....falling head over heels over the guy. So silly, the stories... I really wonder why girls/ladies love to read those. Their fantasy kah?

    1. OMG!!! Barbara Cartland books!!! All the fanatasies in there. Last time when young, naive and pure I used to read that kind of book.
