The phone rang around 2 pm,

Kat: Awu ok ia sudah..nya krg ada doa selamat d rumah tu maghrib..
Me: Ok. bah krg tah ( relieved)
I was thinking all the way on the drive home. What happened? When and why? I visualised the plane wreckage on CNN, smoke, burned metals, survivors… Syukur Alhamdulillah that both Bruneians are safe. As I switched on the TV and log on the net, it was buzzing with reports of the crash, including the blogosphere. **According to the family, the minute the plane turned side way and crashed, he immediately jumped out into the field and went to safety. He then dialled the Brunei embassy and his family in Brunei with his mobile phone, which he kept in his pocket.
Think what would you do in an air crash. This site actually give us how to survive an air crash. For the frequent travellers its good to know and of cos the most effective is to pray to Allah the almighty, that we will arrive to our destination safe and sound. Amin.
I applaud RBA the first time they introduced reading the doa before every journey…That made travelling less stress with peace of mind. This is a true blessing for the 2 survivors who embarked their journey ex- Bandar Seri Begawan.
Lets hope that both the Bruneians and other survivors of the crash are recovering well. Amin…
