Indian Pilot Checks

Postby ksl » Mon, 28 Mar 2011 3:12 am

All you guys with families don't know how lucky you have been!
Makes me shiver just thinking about it. Any pilot that has been involved should be jailed, never mind just canceling their licence.

I was watching a show that was very similar, but it concerned doctors who come to the UK... with fake credentials. Scary stuff... :?

Thats no surprise if you are an Indian. Like I shared a joke sometime ago. I will do it once again:

A worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was: “Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?”

Try being the only Ang Moh at a Chinese Variety show. As a member of a Residents Committee, I'm regularly invited to Chinese Dinners/variety shows and am often the butt of jokes (and with my hair style, even moreso). But it's all in good fun but as ksl noted, you must have a thick skin as Chinese variety shows are just a brutal as in the west. What's worse is that usually it's in dialect and while everybody is laughing their arse off, you haven't a clue what was said until they repeat it in Singlish (if you are lucky) or your colleagues explain it to you.

Was faced with the same, last week, in a Chinese Temple Dinner .. the singer were looking in my direction and making some fun, and I could understand that much that she is referring to me and then after 5 minutes of ra-ra in Chinese welcoming me, she said "welcome Sir" - and I was expected to know the rest of what she said to me in Chinese .. my co-volunteer was laughing his heart out and then to add insult to my injury refused to translate what the singer was yapping about me .. And I was just told "JUST KEEP SMILING" :D :D

been there .. enough of times ..
