Fear And Loathing of Knees In MaIaysia, Truly Arabia!

I’m certainly not a fan of AirAsia, and won’t be until they stop trying to coerce passengers into eating their over-priced meals.

My home-made specialty -bacon and fried egg sandwiches!


It’s the height of arrogance to seek to confiscate any customer’s private property (i.e. sandwiches) before  allowing them the privilege of boarding their scheduled flight  – after all, they have paid hefty sums for valid tickets.

However, needs must, and there’s a need to defend that airline’s stewardesses from sad-sack kill-joys in Malaysia’s legislature.

Malaysia is  increasingly a country one wishes to avoid…

…but most of the stories reported previously, like those in the above links, are of shocking sectarianism.

Today’s, in contrast, is just ludicrous, but albeit with rather unwholesome overtones.

I refer to the likes of Senator Abdullah Mat Yasim, who is a stalwart of the government party, UMNO.

He has declared in Parliament that the fitted attire of AirAsia’s and Firefly’s female flight attendants can “arouse passengers..”

What a pathetic old geezer, you say, as I do!

But in that delightful photo, he doesn’t look THAT old, so how come he’s such a curmudgeon?

One of the few agreeable aspects of air travel is the fact that ( except for Qantas, which seems unable to hire young sexy women ) the average air hostess is fairly yummy.

Certainly, admiring them as they shimmy along back and forth does assuage nervousness among passengers who fear flying.

And for sure it helps pass what is usually a tedious time in the air.

Behold the proof of what I write.

Above, Air Asia girls, visual delights all, and below, some Firefly lasses, busy but equally easy on the eye, I hope you’d agree.  Actually, I’d never heard of Firefly, till yesterday, but no matter.

Poor old wowser Abdullah – what’s wrong with his uptight outlook on life that he can disapprove of those girls’ outfits?

Nothing remotely naughty about them, unless one doesn’t like shapely females.

Perhaps he’s one of the nutjob sort, the sorry sorts who think women should only venture out of doors looking like the Michelin Man..

…as illustrated in the infamous poster below?


‘fathers and husbands, their private parts are your responsibility!’


Aaah, but there’s one airline whose stewardesses do merit Abdullah’s approval, more or less.

…the flight attendant uniforms of Malindo Air, a Malaysian-Indonesian budget carrier, were “acceptable….”

More or less, I observe, because Ole Grumplestiltskin had to add that the uniforms are also body hugging but at least the “sensitive areas” are covered

The clear implication of Abdullah’s asinine observation is that ‘sensitive areas’ of the AirAsia and Firefly girls above are UNcovered.

Like, which sensitive areas are uncovered? Their faces? Their hands? Their hair?

OR…have we stumbled on another case of…

Pretty ladies, but over-dressed, one could argue!


In case you reckon they broke the mould after Abdullah was created, get this!

Abdullah was praised by the assembly’s deputy president Abdul Halim Abd Samad for highlighting the issue. “This is a good topic that many people can relate to as they always take flights

And there’s another strange man been haranguing the senators, Megat Zulkarnain Omardin, who suggested that the airlines redesign the uniforms.

“My wife is worried whenever I fly alone on Malindo or AirAsia,” said Megat…”This is a real hassle for me,” he said, drawing laughter from other members of the Dewan Negara or Upper House of Parliament.

Odd as a nine dollar bill!

AND ANOTHER, the week before, Senator Hanafi Mamat from Kelantan, who came right out and confessed his sectarian motivation,  claiming attendants should wear “syariah-compliant” uniforms as Malaysia is an Islamic country.

But what about the large non-Muslim minorities? Will Catholic, Protestant, Hindu and Buddhist attendants be allowed to dress like normal women, and will Hanafi’s “syariah-compliant” uniforms look like this…


….to ensure normal blokes will still want to use the airlines?

All interesting questions, but how sad that such rubbish is even aired in a place meant for discussion of serious issues!

Listen to Hanafi’s hogwash…

Tourists might get the wrong impression of Malaysia if flight stewardesses dress up “sexily and disrespectfully!”    


Disrespectful to whom?

Since when is being sexy the same as being disrespectful?

But while we may shed a tear for Malaysia, it’s not the only country that is getting totally screwy about the babes in the skies.

My own preference for the ideal air hostess outfit would be that worn by Zuhal Sengul, in this photo below…



…I wonder whatever happened to her, after she lost her job for being gorgeous!

Kasihan Zuhal Sengul – Hot Turkish Delight Fired By Kill-Joys! 

… but the wearer is no longer in that line of business. Magnificent Zuhal got fired after some classy pictures were published online, which upset the mean-spirited management of Turkish Airlines.

But what can one expect from the Land of Erdolf?
