Another Holiday

Just had 3 days off. Somehow the flights I was supposed to work on got changed. Great!

This afternoon I'll go to Motorshow at BITEC to take some pics. Will post them later.

VVIP Flight

On March 26th I had a chance to fly a special flight from Gaya, India to Bangkok. One thing was that it's the last flight to operate before it's getting too hot to takeoff/landing in summer this year. Another was it's a flight with HRH Princess Somsawalee on board back home from making merit at Wat Thai Bodhagaya. It was a great honor to have served on this flight.

Somehow I've got 5 days off in a row for the past week. Vacation was the first idea that came up. So I made a few calls for the reservation. Luckily I've got this Phuket Villa at Wora Bura Resort & Spa. Perfect!

And I'm Back Online!

In previous post I mentioned about my PC passed away. That took me a few weeks to realise that fixing is just not worth it and upgrading the whole system probably is a better idea. A laptop is also a good idea since I'm away from home almost all the time.

So laptop it is. After wandering around Pantip Plaza for a few hours, I finally decided to buy an AMD Turion. Here's its specifications:

  • - AMD TurionTM 64x2 1.6GHz
  • - 14.1 inches LCD
  • - ATI Radeon Xpress 1100
  • - 120GB HDD
  • - DVD RW
  • - 512MB DDR2
With its very low price, in my opinion, the budget is under control. And I'm very happy with it. (Although it's a bit hot and eats up battery quickly.)

I'm Alive!

I've been away for a very long time, havn't I? The Christmas had passed, New Year had passed, Chinese New Year had passed, and Valentine's had passed. My life is still the same--go to work, eat, drink, and sleep. Nothing's changed.

Since the new year of 2007 my schedule has been very busy. It's because some of the pilots in my fleet got transferred to another in order to free some spaces for new trainees. However, the trainees were a bit behind schedule so there's a few months gap which the number of pilots is less than required. The result is a very tight schedule and less days off.

That was not an excuse for not updating my weblog, though, well, just a part of it. In fact, it's because my 6-year-old Athlon-1-GHz desktop just passed away earlier. It just suddenly went dead. My personal PC expert Maytha, a friend from undergrad school, suspected either the mainboard or the CPU was gone. And with my tight schedule recently, I just had to live without the 'net for a while.
