Another Journey With Qatar Airways

As I hopped into the aircraft, I immediately glanced through the menu. As expected from the five-star airline, Qatar Airways provided a wide selection of wonderful International cuisine. Just before the plane took off, one of the stewardess approached my Mom and I and offered us something to drink. I didn't feel well that night, due to consuming a large amount of ice cream earlier, so I asked the stewardess for some hot tea instead of my usual apple juice. A minute later, she came back, holding a tray of drinks to be served. She handed me a glass of black tea, along with a couple of butter biscuits.

I wasn't going to have the late night refreshments because I was too full from the ice cream. But when I saw the menu, I changed my mind. Fried noodles with steam-fry vegetables. Salad with grilled potatoes and grilled fancy cheese which name escapes me. Ox tail soup. Chicken crepe with salad on the side of the plate. How could I resist? I decided to have something light so that I wouldn't have the urge to make all of those food that I have consumed come out. A plate of salad is more than enough, I said to myself. 

After the stewardess took note of what I would have for the late night meal, she went back to her post to get some napkins. Then, she came back to my seat, pulled out this portable table located on the side of my chair, unfolded the white napkin and covered the table with it. And then, she went back to her post, and when she came back, she brought a tray of nice white dinning set. She decorated my table very neatly.

A moment after my table was beautifully arranged, another stewardess approached me. She was holding a basket which was covered with napkins. When she got to my seat, she unfolded the napkin and offered me some buns to go with my meal. I picked two different buns, a plain white bun and a bagel bread. As I was about to eat the bagel bread, another stewardess came to me and poured myself a glass of mineral water. How can you not feel like kings in this kind of situation?

Both bread tasted good, especially the bagel 

As I was about to bite the bagel bread, a stewardess came to where I sat and served my order. The salad looked gorgeous! It was nicely arranged, with fried potatoes on the side and grilled cheese on top of the fresh vegetables. Purple cabbages, rocket leafs, and cherry tomatoes were the ingredients chosen to make this salad. Those vegetables were fresh and juicy, especially the cherry tomatoes. The fried potatoes were crunchy, yet soft in the middle, not to mention delicious. It was as if you were indulging those German-style fried potatoes, minus the bacon. The grilled cheese was my favorite! Logically, cheese will melt if you fry it, but this one didn't. I don't know what kind of cheese that I ate, but it sure tasted delicious. No, not delicious, it tasted EPIC! At first, it tasted somewhat like chicken. Then, it started to taste like fish. A second later, you can taste butter. Then finally, the thought "Man, this is one epic cheese!" would just pop up in your mind.

Those are grilled cheese by the way, just incase if you thought that those were fish

The sun rose and it was time for breakfast. One of the stewardess woke me up, telling me that it was time for breakfast and that she would like to know what drinks I would have for starter. I quickly glanced through the breakfast menu and decided to try out this new energizer named Peach & Strawberry Energizer. It looked pretty similar like the usual energizer, which is the Strawberry Banana Energizer. It tasted great and very milky, a bit similar to milkshake, but my love for Qatar Airways' Strawberry Banana energizer cannot be replaced.

A glass of Peach & Strawberry Energizer, yum!

I can never get tired of drinking this energy drink

The selections of bread was a bit different than the usual. They replaced mini Danish Brown and mini croissant with medium-sized croissant and a muffin. The muffin was very attractive, so I decided to try a bite. It tasted delicious, not that sweet nor that savory. It was not those kind of sweet muffins that would make your stomach feels funny in a bad way. I've never tasted Maple Bacon Cupcake, but I assume that the cupcake base will taste pretty similar to this particular savory muffin. If only I was not that full at that time, I might finish the whole muffin and asked for second serving.

Savory muffin, I choose you!

Oh look, I found a treasure! Don't know what that was, but it sure tasted nice

After I'm finished with the muffin, the stewardess served me a bowl of toasted muesli with fresh milk. It was delicious, despite it tasted rather plain because I didn't add any sugar into the bowl. Other than grains and nuts, there were dried raisins, dried banana, dried peach, and dried apple. I should have add some sugar though, just for the sake of making this particular meal all flavory, but I regret nothing.

And for the finale.... WAFFLES! Who wouldn't love waffles for breakfast, especially with berries, greek yogurt, and chocolate jam? The waffles were great to be eaten along with the berries and the chocolate jam. The greek yogurt made the waffles tasted rather fresh, I assume it was because of the sourness. I tried to take a big bite of the waffle, along with all of the

Waffles! Who doesn't love waffles? I mean, come on!

Waffles with chocolate jam? Could breakfast get any better than this? 

Breakfast was awesome! Trust me on this, you will not regret traveling with Qatar Airways. The flight crew are beyond polite and nice, not to mention they always smile when they talk to us, and the surely will make you feel as if you are a royal blood. "What can I get you, madam?" and "Would you like some milk with that, sir?" will always be heard inside the aircraft as they endlessly spoil you. As expected from a five-star airline.

Don't blink....

Poof! the Chamber of Secrets are unlocked, and look, some wild mineral water appeared!
