“Hello there! I’m Melissa. I’ll be taking care of you on today’s flight.”
I’m a twenty-something international traveller.
I’m half Thai, half Australian.
My home City is Perth, Western Australia. My current city is Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
I’ve been a flight attendant with a Middle Eastern carrier since 2005, hired from a worldwide cattle call day. I currently work as a First Class crew member.
I blog about in-flight dramas, but my main passion is what a city and its people has to offer.
I travel to a different city on average about 5 times a month.
I love learning languages, though I usually give up after knowing the standards. At the moment I am learning German, but would love to be fluent in Japanese, Arabic and Thai. Maybe French as well.
My blog has been mentioned in printed media such as Gulf News and CLEO Singapore.
I love to twitter – follow me @melissaecholima
I also answer emails wherever I can. – tampaxtowers[at]gmail[dot]com Please try to be specific with your questions, if you simple write “How do I get into XXX airlines?” I will procrastinate, and more than likely not reply back., since there are quite a few I have pending at any given time.
If you wish to discuss advertising or promotions on the site, please feel free to email me – I’m always welcome to new ideas
