Today's picture is from a "farewell" dinner for one of Pae's friends. Bee was hired by Qatar Airways a month or two back and is now flying to Qatar (tomorrow) to start training. There were 11 of us who got together at Fuji, a Japanese chain restaurant here, to say goodbye to Bee. Less "goodbye" and more "see you in Doha"!!
Qatar and Emirates are the two biggest Middle East airlines that recruit here and many of the girls who dream of being flight attendants really work their tails off to get with one of the two. Oman and Bahrain are another two M.E. airlines that hire here. The Asian airlines like KAL, Asiana, Cathay Pacific, Thai Air, etc., are a lot harder to get but they do come on occasion to pick and choose from the thousands of girls (and guys) who are applying.
It's good to see Bee actually going, not that her friends won't miss her, but because it's actually happening for her and she can get on with it instead of waiting around.
This is a picture of Pae and Bee before saying their goodbyes at Fuji. Who knows, a 2010 Friday Foto could find the two of them together again in Qatar! We'll see! Happy Thanksgiving season and Happy Friday!!
