Getting a Taste of Air Asia Café’s Quick Bites and Drinks

 AirAsia Zest recently opened its doors to Filipinos living in the south. Adding a direct flight that connects Cebu, the Queen City of the South, to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia will definitely bring more opportunities for Filipinos and Malaysians to travel and explore each countries. And the great thing is that I got to experience what it feels like to visit Malaysia, Truly Asia when I joined the world’s best low-cost airline on it’s inaugural flight from Cebu to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia just a few days ago. It was my first time to travel to Malaysia, you see, and I couldn’t contain my excitement when I learned that I’ll be travelling with fellow travel blogger friends from Cebu on this trip.

Air Asia Zest flies daily to/from Cebu to Kuala Lumpur. We were to fly out of Cebu, Philippines at 6am on December 1st but had to meet up with the gang at 3am.

When we were all complete, we went ahead to check in and went through immigration before we boarded the aircraft that will take us to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Just before 6am, we were asked to board the plane and walked the runway leading to the aircraft. As it was my first time to fly to Kuala Lumpur, I requested for a window seat and was happy to know that there were still a few slots available.

This would be my 1st international trip after backpacking for 5 months around Thailand and Cambodia last year. I actually find it ironic that for the first time I never researched about what to do in Malaysia or took the time to know the things to see there.

I am normally OC when it comes to planning my trips. But in this case, I just let things be and enjoyed the scenic sunrise from my window seat.

One of the great finds inside AirAsia’s aircraft is their flight magazine. The articles in the magazine were very informative. It gives Malaysia newbies the chance to get to know a few facts about the country.

I also found the article about how to speak and sound Malaysian useful as it’s a plus factor if you know a few local words of the country that you will be visiting.

Just after take off, we were then served our breakfast. The timing was just right since my tummy was already grumbling.

Each one of us received this box and its contents took me by surprise the moment I opened it.

I was overwhelmed at what I saw when I opened my box. My eyes lit up like a kid who stumbled on a goldmine of Christmas goodies the moment I saw all those food waiting to be consumed. I couldn’t even decide what to eat at first but soon settled on the Pan De Ulam, a bread bun filled with Bistek Tagalog filling.

Since we left Cebu for Kuala Lumpur on an early morning, the breakfast box was very ideal to feed our hungry tummies. And just as my companions enjoyed eating their AirAsia breakfast meal, I, on the other hand, immediately consumed my bread bun as I was famished. The serving size of the bread was just right. It was big enough to satisfy one’s hunger for early morning food.

As we waited for the plane to touchdown at Kuala Lumpur, I couldn’t stop myself from thinking what awaits for us as we set foot in Malaysia. I had absolutely no idea what to expect in this country and my excitement grew ever minute the clock stroke. While holding my cup of coffee, I simply threw glances outside my window seat while my mind kept rambling “Are we there yet?”
