The "Complicated" Thingy in my FB account

Saturday, April 17, 2010

..just this week I changed my status profile form single to “it’s complicated”…and most of my friends were asking me to tell them the whole story… so for those who know this blog site, I’m going to share it to you… :)
..reviewing on my previous post, I broke up with my bf last December ‘coz he’s really against my FA dream… and because I am single right now, I am open to dating…  My bestfriend who happened to be a guy, was there for me, cheered me up when I’m down and supported me in reaching my FA dream..  actually, even the little things in me, he knows a lot… and I’m happy that he knows me very well… oh well to cut it short, he told his feelings already about me… and of course, when I found out I was shocked…but I’m happy in a way ‘coz if he’ll be my boyfie, I’m pretty sure that I’m in safe hands, he’s a faithful guy I know that and the fact that I’m comfortable bein’ with him and I trust him a lot…
sooo where’s the complicated part?..  my parents like my ex over him, especially my mom… she’s pro ex.. as in! the reason why?.. kasi daw si “ex” financially stable and hindi nako magpapakahirap magwork pa… mas secured daw future ko with my ex.. I know that my mom is just thinking of my future…  she only likes my “bes” as my bestfriend… and nothing more than that..  my bestfriend is just like me working also in a diagnostic company but he is a Product Manager by the way… even the college friend which I happened to introduce  to my mom, ayaw din nia para sakin…negative din sa kanya.. haayyyy… :(
until now, my ex is trying to win me back, and he’s kinda seeking the help of my parents…. Pero ayaw nia talaga na mag-FA ako which I don’t get to understand his reasons… hindi nia maintindihan na yun ang gusto ko at dream na dream ko… kaya naiinis ako!
I like to obey my parents pero sa pagkakataon na’to parang hindi ko na ata kayang makipagbalikan kay ‘ex’ at isuko nalang basta basta ang FA dream ko… and iniisip ko din pano na bestfriend ko…  
So ‘til now, im still weighing things… me and my bestfriend are still best of friends.. and I don’t know yet if we’ll be together as “bf-gf” someday… the decision is all in me.. to choose between my ex or my bes is one of the decisions i have to face right now.. and still undecided…
so guys, what do you think??? I’ll be happy to know your opinions…

Last Tuesday (April 6), I was damn waiting the whole day to receive a text message coming from Skills informing me of my F.I the next day for Saudia when suddenly I received a text message later that afternoon while I was driving on my way home.. and this is the actual text… 

When I’m halfway reading it, I smiled and thanked God for an answered prayer without absorbing and reading everything in the text because I was driving… then when I got home and browsed my phone again I suddenly noticed that it’s not from Skills but the message was from PERT agency… argh! I really thought it was from Skills… :( 

And since I received a text from PERT, I decided to go there the next day to attend the preliminary screening and interview with the PERT head. In fairness to PERT I just waited for a few minutes (15-20 minutes I think) and there you go my interview. I was the 3rd girl to be interviewed that day. When my name was called, I immediately went inside the room of the PERT head. He was a guy by the way. He seemed to be nice. When I entered his room, he looked at me from head to foot (cephalo caudal approach) then instructed me to have a seat. The interview was just about my resume, my work right now, if I’m single/married, with kids or none, with boyfriend or none (haha yes including that one huh), and why do you want to be a flight attendant and why is this your dream?.. That’s all he asked me.

And afterwards, he discussed the Royal Brunei salary and some of the benefits from the said airline. Of course I would like to share it to you, dear readers.  He told me that the basic salary was 750USD, plus 800 USD flying hours, free medicals when you are working with RB, once a year you get to visit the Philippines to be home with your family, 2 free tickets every year for your family to travel. Hmmm, not bad right?..
And then after that, he told me that they will just notify me through text for the schedule of the Final Interview with him and the Royal Brunei Employer. And because he seemed to be nice, I didn’t have second thoughts of asking him if when will I be expecting a text message. And he answered that as soon as he gathered the required number of FA applicants, he’ll immediately contact the RB employer to go the Philippines to conduct the F.I. And that's it, I thanked him and left his office with some hope.. "positive thinking" :)

Oh well, I may be broken hearted with Skills but at least PERT saved my day. God is really good. He saved me, and I never felt so down/depressed because of Skills. I found again some hope with PERT. Thanks to PERT! lol 

So FA hopefuls, what are you waiting for?.. Go to PERT agency and submit your resume and requirements already.. ^_^

i hope someday i'll find a guy like this.. yeeehaaa... :)

..just saw this post in one of my friends in FB... i love it that's why i'm just re-posting it here.. :) 
and now I'M READY to screen


You think you have what it takes to be a flight attendant’s boyfriend? Here are FEW things you have to put through. And that’s why they say these jet setters are the Top 3 Most Spoiled Girlfriends in the World. If you’re in a relationship with one: man, we give it up to you…. And If you’re planning to have one:

Be prepared, Be very very… prepared.

1. Do Not expect her to drive the car. She’s most not likely to have a driving license, she’d say “Babe, I only have a passport.”

2. Familiarize yourself with SKYPE, YM’s. VoIPs. She worships those amazing discoveries.

3. DO treat her like a princess before she can treat you like her king. Get ready for statements like “Buy me food, or else Ill break up with you!”

4. DO NOT be surprised if she wants you to take several shots of vaccines: Hepa B, Hepa A, Meningitis, Yellow Fever etc. etc.

5. Stay away when her roster comes out. That’s the next worse time to PMS.

6. BE grateful of her smile. You get it for free. IN the skies, it’s worth 6 digits.

7. BE READY to see yourself 5 to 10 years from now. She wants a man who knows his direction.

8. DO give importance to time, preferably Military time. 21:16 is NEVER the same as 21:17

9. DO NOT wake her up when she’s sleeping, even if you wonder “ she must be hungry after sleeping 18 hours already!” Again, LET her wake up by herself.

10. DO NOT mess with how she arranges her suitcase. Boots are for Boots sack, shampoos are for toilettries, undies are for undies bag and so on.

11. DO NOT expect her to remember names of your friends in one sitting.

12. DO NOT accuse her of bragging when she says she went to Paris for Coffee or just hit the gym in Berlin. She’s just plainly, innocently telling you a story.

13. Do not get intimidated by the beautiful men around him, chances are she’s already used to/sick of seeing hotness in form. Those men have lost their beauty.

14. DO NOT call her on the phone when she’s on Standby. DO NOT… ever.

15. Do NOT question why Half of the dresses in her closet has never been worn, and she still complains, she doesn’t have anymore.

16. Do Not remove any clothes you think is too much in his suitcase, remember: she has four sets of outfit in her suitcase: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Fall.

17. She expects you to learn how to read an Aviator watch.

18. And when she gives you that expensive Aviator watch, Do not Ask her: “ what time is it there in Khartoum?”

19. The next best gift to a Limited Louis Vuitton bag is a fancy Dual Time Watch.

20. She carries a First Aid Kit with her and 26 kinds of Supplements: Vit C,E,A,B, anti-Oxidants, Gingko Biloba, Evening Primrose Oil, Horseradish Capsules, etc. etc. even those Pills (damn-those!) you request her to take everyday!

21. At least buy McDonalds before your holiday flight, she prefers it over aircraft food, and yes even over the caviars in first class cabin.

22. Understand that discovering a designer dress on the clearance rack can be considered a peak life experience.

23. Make sure of the inaccuracy of your bathroom scale.

24. Remind her which country she is in first thing when she wakes up in the morning

25. During dinner, when she asks you whether you like chicken or beef… Oboohooy! you better think fast!

26. Begin to be scared when you oversee a long line in Immigration, she has zero tolerance on airport queues.

27. Work your muscle for a trip together, you’ll be carrying at least four baggages for her. A Gucci make-up bag, a Paul Smith, a World Traveller Trolley, and a Burberry Laptop bag at least for a Domestic Flight.

28. A bouquet of flowers is THE if not, THE ONLY way to say “I missed you” when you pick her up at the airport.

29. Prepare yourself for her jetlag, otherwise known as the PFS or the POST Flight Syndrome. You should be awake when she is and asleep when she is . You don’t want to see a whole 72 hours of tantrums.

30. And lastly, it might seem like she thinks she is overqualified for love. But DO remember that in reality, she feels like she is just an ordinary girl standing in front of a boy, asking him…

For a foot rub… after a damn…long flight.
