LADYRAIN@.@,

If you are worried you might get sick and miss everyone [blahh... blah...]
then I bet airline isn't for you. Maybe perhaps, Singapore based.

If you were to ask Singaporegrrl, whether she misses everyone in Singapore. She will definitely say, YES! But everything have to be put aside because this is a CAREER. [b]Which means, serious CONSIDERATION is needed!

Thank you for your advise!

Yes, home-base is always the best choice.
Its your home ground. Whatever happened,at anytime u need your family, they are just ard the corner.

But, in life... sometimes other issues comes in like for me for example- i am in no position to sit here and wait... for some personal reasons.
And being a cabin crew and living in other country are not new to me.
Home sick is a huge issue which I intent to share earlier here.

I personally think it's your own opinion on regards about home sick.
But here's my opinion on home sick: I have my own sister, and including myself being alone for years [before] in other country. We do have home sick. BUT IT'S NOT EVEN A HUGE ISSUE FOR US. Cause we always believe that making this choice is our decision and by making this choice we are setting a brighter future for ourselves.

I have always believe that it's all in the mind.
I believe rinnuwatanabe could explain further on regards to this mind thingy. :wink:

And I am kind of confused.
You said earlier [before this post] that you cant give your life as a cabin crew yet, after that you said being a cabin crew and living in other country are not new to you.
So which is which?
You flew before, including living in other country and now you want to be a cabin crew in overseas based airline, then you are afraid of home sick?

I'm confused! :???:
