I had a change travel to Singapore by plane in 2020. This was my first time traveling by plane. I only knew  a few english words back then so I couldn't understand the airport staff's instruction. He looked at me with contempt in his eyes. This experience was a turning point for me. It became one of the main reasons I decided to seriously study english

I visted Quy Nhon city which is the big city in the middle of Vietnam last month. It took me half past hour go there from Ha Noi to Quy Nhon by plane. It was the first time I had a chance to encounter a aviation problem. When the plane was flying, the captain informed that the pressure control system has trouble, so we were coming back to Noi Bai and waiting to catch another plane to go to Phu Cat.
