Airbus Factory Tour

IMG_5549

I’ve written tons of blog posts but this must be the most exclusive, priceless piece yet: A one-of-a-kind, personalized, ala VVIP trip to the Airbus factory in France. Indeed, it is an experience money can’t buy (even if you could, I wouldn’t want to imagine its price).

From the offices to factories, lunch la vie en rose to exploring the luxurious mock-up centre; which only Airbus staffs and their clients can enter – We did it all thanks to AirAsia X for planning such a generous gesture. Now I’d love to share this journey with you. Shall we begin? :)

{This is how the end of our A380 factory visit looks like. This corner gave me a very strong deja vu feeling so I decided to capture it and bring it home. Somehow I still feel related to it; not sure the reason behind this queerness. Perhaps I am a recycled soul}

{Can’t get more literal than the name here, especially with a glass or two of sparkling champagne. Cheers to life!}

{As I stood opposite that stranger of a man, facing this sophisticated building, I can’t stop wondering to myself – “Imagine what would it be like to work here in Airbus, Toulouse?” That’d be so damn awesome, don’t you think?!}

{Opened my eyes to all the wonderful possibilities an Airbus plane can do during this very exclusive session – the absolute highlight of my day}

{Absorbing all that luxurious glow in this special Airbus. Have you ever experienced anything like that?}

It’d be a waste not to play color blocking on such a happy, sunny day in France (and Air Asia X’s hot bird, the Xcintillating PhoeniX at the background!). With pops of red and cobalt, finished off with a pretty wash of fresh, blooming patterns all over a piece of ruffle dress; it’s all about  feminine simplicity today. As there is so much going on already, I kept the accessorizing minimal with [...]

That said, now is the best time to shop for swimwear if you are over there as they are mostly on SALE! I’m head over heels these beautiful colors discovered at my recent [...]

Most of us sees Macau as the second bird you kill using the first stone, with Hong Kong being the primary bird; which means most of us also spend 70% of the days traveling Hong Kong, leaving Macau with only 30%. Here’s the truth from my perspective – it is better to do it the other way round; even if that means there’s nothing left to do in Macau anymore. [...]
