Bizarre Addiction – Airlines Accident

May 31, 2010 at 1:01 PM

I’m so lazy to blog long with pictures today. For the past 2 days I’ve been playing with my Nintendo DSi until my eyes are blurry. I haven’t touched my DSi  for quite a long time since I was busy with my final year at college.  I forgot how much fun DSi can be when you want to learn Japanese. I’ve been revising my kanji writing and the basic hiragana/katakana… I can say that I am ashamed of myself that I even get the strokes for hiragana wrong! I don’t even remember most of katakana.. let alone remember the onyomi and kunyomi of first grade kanji! WTF. I spent a year in Japanese school, being tortured to death by the hectic life of Japan people, stressing myself to the max for what? Only to forget 90% of what I’ve learned there a few years later. Gah.

I’m going back to my hometown this week so I’m gonna start doing some Kanji revision.

Okay, apart from that, I have also been watching/reading news/videos about past airline crashes… I believe it has somewhat traumatized me now… I’ve been obsessing about the Air India Express crash since it happened… particularly on the passenger ‘Harshini Poonja‘, a 17 (or 18, or 19, or 20) year old girl who is now infamous because of her last twitter posting at the airport before she got on the ill-fated plane.

@netizentwo: At the airport and blah =_= Only thing to look forward to is the rain.

That is chillingly disturbing to know that shortly later she would end up charred to death… been reading her blog, news about her.. unfortunately the facebook of ALL of Dubai residents that knew her, including her own facebook are set to private.. so can’t get to know her more however some of her pictures make me extremely sad.. she was so young, pretty and innocent looking and have a full bright future ahead of her, but that’s all not gonna happen now.

Sujata Survase‘s (the cabin crew) ORKUT’s last update was “I hate goodbyes but I guess it’s time“… even though her facebook had that same status message but it was a while ago, but still… however her facebook is no longer available.. maybe the family contacted FB for it to be deleted.

Then yesterday I’ve been watching two episodes of Airline Crash Investigation.. for the episode about Adam Air that crashed into the ocean and disappeared… listened to the black box recording of the pilots minutes before they crash and… that’s what TRAUMATIZD me.. it was so disturbing beyond words…to hear the voices of people who are about to die, to know what the last few minutes of their lives was like…God.

The other episode was the mid-air collision between Bashkirian Airlines Flight 2937 / DHL Flight 611… yes if you know me, you’d know that I can get extremely addicted and obsessed when it comes to something mysterious.. this is a sad case when that flight had really gifted smart children/prodigies that would have a very bright future only to meet with death unexpectedly 30,000 feet above… this is particularly a scary one to know that the DHL plane’s tail kinda ‘sliced’ through the belly of the Bashkirian plane and it split into two- IN MID AIR! Imagine if you were in that plane, and you were sleeping peacefully and suddenly within seconds the plane splits into two and you might end up thrown out, falling to your death and your body sorta ‘explodes’ in bits and pieces and parts of you landed in the area within kilometres apart. How tragic is that??

I wanted to see what the bodies were like (yes this is part of my morbid fascination, strange curiosity) but I could only find one picture of a woman..and what’s left of her was only the head down to the left side of the shoulder and left upper arm. One out of her two daughters was found intact by their father who helped with the search. The guy lost his entire family – a wife and two kids, and eventually got crazy and soon later he stabbed the air traffic controller Peter Nielsen to death for ‘causing’ the mid air collision. It wasn’t his fault entirely but he, too, ended up with death. Tragic, very tragic.

Okay, enough about that before I get obsessed again.

On a slightly happier note (for me), I have lost 3 kg in 3 days since I took the pills from my doctor… WOOT. Okay, it might be just the water weight but I’m still happy to see the numbers go down in the scale. Hopefully it has no side effect.. the medicine includes fat burning pill which I’m hoping it would burn away my extra fat.. I’ve never been at this weight, and to start to feel all the bulges make me very, very uncomfortable…so that’s a wake up call for me telling me it’s time for a change before I get way too fat and be in the danger of obesity and the sickness obesity will give you.

Can’t wait to go back to my hometown, in my nice house, no low-class immigrants & villagers, no broken elevators, no cramped space.. so I can do a lot of dancing & exercising in my living room aka my bedroom (yes I sleep in the living room on the first floor). Only thing I’m worried about is the internet….. I can’t rely on my phone to connect my laptop to internet everytime, I need the fixed line…so I can download stuff.. like Glee episodes!

PS: Watched 2 episodes of “Mind Your Language” yesterday. Always wanted to watch this to see if it’s funny… I was instantly hooked! God I love British sitcoms.
