Latest Updates
Tuesday, October 31, 2006
Okay, so woke up today and saw a comment alerting me to this:

Yes, this very blog made it onto the Tabloid pages of Gulf News. In the same newspaper section that has articles about R&B singer Monica, TomKat, Lindsey Lohan and other paparazi fodder. Well, not really, it has a 'blogosphere' section. Regardless of where it is, it is certainly in there and I'm breaking out in sweats.

When I first started this blog, I did so with the purest of intentions, just a place to post photos from layovers to show my mates back in Australia. Then when I realised how few people were actually reading it, I joined the UAE community hoping SOMEONE would read it. Someone did - Gautam, and it was he who pointed out the kind mention. (Thanks BTW)

My airline are a great employer, I am having an absolute blast here. I love the fact that I get to fly everywhere, from Tehran to Tunis, and get paid for it. I love the fact that it has no union. I love the uniform. After 9 months I'm still in the honeymoon period.

But please, don't make me become the next Ellen Simonetti.

In Australia, Free Speech is exactly that - free speech. A prominent Muslim cleric can make comments comparing scantily-clad women to uncovered meat. Yes, he'll cop some flak for it, but he won't face legal action. In Dubai I'm not so sure what 'free-speech' is, or how free it is here. It's pretty socially advanced compared to other cities in the region though.

Now I actually have to post something intelligent. And spellcheck them. And reference everything. I feel like I'm writing university assignments all over again...

Just for the record, the post it's refering to is from someone posting on, refering to a passenger on an airline based in the states. At our airline we love all our passengers :-)
