Thank you sir for giving me hope again

Sometimes, unexpected things may happen. Sometimes, the magnitude of a simple gesture is enough to inject motivation into my soul again.

A few days ago, something really great happened. A man from faraway land had given me hope again. You know who you are sir. I can’t thank you enough. It probably was nothing but it was indeed of value to me. Believe it or not, getting into that company is something that I have been aiming for.

Again, thanks for giving me the chance to at least try (I know I have repeated this many many times).

One thing for sure is that I’ll work bloody damn hard if I get in. If everything goes well and I’m able to join your ranks, who knows, I might be sitting to your right one day. It would truly be an honour sir. Thank you.

I want to be a pilot, thus the reason why I want to stay in Australia.

One of the deciding factors of whether I’ll be returning to Malaysia or staying in Australia is this. Which will give me a much better chance in pursuing my lifelong dream of becoming a pilot. This entry is with the assumption that I can’t get into any cadet pilot programs.

Here’s the situation. In Malaysia, it’ll cost me around RM250,000 for a 2-year-plus CPL + ATPL program. In Australia, it’ll cost me around AUD80,000 for the same program, plus the Flying Instructors’ course.

Imagine if I save a couple of thousand per month (if I’m lucky) in either countries and in their respective currencies, how long will it take? Earning AUD4,000 and save till AUD80,000 seems to be much closer than earning RM4,000 (again if I’m lucky) and saving for RM250,000.

If there’s a way for me to do my flying licence in Malaysia within the next couple of years, then I’ll gladly return to Malaysia, that’s for sure. However, I’m still figuring out that “one” way.

I’m still aiming for the cadet pilot programs though… God I hope I’ll get accepted into one. I don’t think anybody else is more obsessed (in a good way of course) about this than myself.
