Fish Fish in USA (Pt 1, July 15)
Fish Fish started her journey to USA on 15 July. I would say it was not a nice start at all.
By the time I reached the Kansai International Airport, then I realised my flight was delayed 2 hrs. *iish* We wouldn't be in time for the connection then, so my sensei and me decided to make the connection one flight later, which turned up to be 5 hours later than earlier scheduled. *sigh*
We got extra 2 hrs, so we decided to have lunch in the airport. I wanted to eat omelette rice.
I chose mushrooms and eggplant omelette rice with white sauce. It was a good one. The white sauce went very well with the rice. There was also a free cup of soup too.
Ah well~ my last meal before I took my flight. I would say it was a good one. A treat from my sensei. Kihkihkih...
This was the flight that brought us to USA. The flight was a continuation from Taipei, so there were a lot of Taiwanese speaking Mandarin in the flight.
My 1st meal in the flight. I would give 4/10 for this meal. I love the portion of fresh veggies that served. The fetuccini was kind of overcook. Ah well~ I never put high expectation on in-flight food.
The steward that served me the food kind of gave me a cultural shock. Know what?? He was chewing gum when he was serving the passengers. I've in fact never seen this kind of service before.
All the stewards and stewardesses in the flight were all veterans. Later only then I know they work until their retire age. Hmm... this is something very hard to be imagine in a Asian airline.
We flew through a very nice sea cloud. It was a very pretty one.
Soon, the day became dark very fast. And before I knew it, the day turned bright again. Wow!! A night time with only 3 hours. The shortest I have ever experienced. ^_^
When we were still blur blur... stewardess gave one of this to me. I have no idea whether it is for tea time or morning snack. I was totally out of time concept.
I ate the whole thing, though it was just so so. Well, I must say the portion of the food was quite stingy. In fact, a small appetite person like my sensei also was complaining the food portion was too small. So, just imagine a glutton fish like me, it was a hard time for me to stand the starve.
When I flipped up the window cover again...
Wah~~~ I was so excited. I've never seen such big pieces of mosaic-looking farms. In fact, I was very curious how they actually can survive in such a deserted area. More, how these people can managed to take care such a huge piece of land.
I must say I really salute!!
Then, we flew through mountaineous area. Those black spots were the sign of burnt forest. Geee... must be very dry and hot in this area. Can't imagine how it might turn into a bigger disaster if the fire is not put-out quickly.
I finally seen a very long and big river. I wonder if it is the Missisippi River. Maybe not.
Now, can anyone explain this phenomenon to fish fish please? This white line of cloud was like continuing for mile and mile. I am very curious to know how this can happen. Thank you.
The 2nd main meal in the flight. The first one tasted better. I would rate this one 2.5/10. The gnocchi texture kind of unattractive. So do the tomato, too sour. This is indeed a meal for me just to fill up my hunger.
Know what? Bizarre things happened again. The steward this time now was holding a toothpick in between his teeth when he was talking and serving us!!! OMG!!! I really couldn't believe this. What more, he was distributing food to passengers with only one hand. He didn't look like someone who is doing his duty at all to me. I should have take a picture of him, but I don't think that will be a polite move.
My sensei and me couldn't help but kept laughing. I wonder what will be the response if I write a letter of complain.
"Fish Fish, you are lucky. All my time I took Northwest Airlines, this is the first time I see this." Sensei was saying this to me.
Yah right! Lucky huh. -_-"
Even more lucky, our meals were served in such a dark condition. Man~ Northwest Airlines should be very happy with such considerate crews that they have, help them to cut cost. Hmmm...
Another strange thing. A tall young lady sitting in the front row of us... while waiting for her turn to go to the washroom, she suddenly turn off my air-con and smiled at me. She was saying something to me which sound totally alien to me. Sensei and me look at each other and put a big ??? mark in our face.
"This is her air-con. Yours is in front." Sensei was telling her. However, she seemed to not understand what my sensei said.
After a while, I went to the washroom. When I back, I didn't know how my heavy butt broke my glasses. By the time I realised, half side already broken into pieces.
I was speechless... yah~ dumb dumb fish.
Tell me... what would you do when all these things happen to you in a same flight?
How glad I was when the landscape of Detroit finally imposed into my eyes. It was kind of a fresh feeling to see how the housing area in Detroit is plotted. So spacious, like many centipedes. Totally something you wouldn't see in Japan.
The flight was very shaky and up-down during the last 30 min flight, until made me feeling nausea. I was glad I brought my minyak kapak. If not, I think I have vomitted like an ugly-looking fish liao.
Ah~~~ I've never feel so good when I see an airport. USA, you sure gave me a very hard to forget 1st experience.
To be cont...
