Leaving Redang

He wiped the sweat off his face with a blue, fake Nike baseball cap and wore it as he walked back into the departures hall that doubles as a luggage check-in desk and souvenir shop. He weighed our luggage when we checked it in, carried it into the plane, and came back to open the gate and collect the tear-out parts of our boarding passes. Not until he called the passengers taking the flight to Subang Jaya, everyone at the Redang Island airport, did we realise that he was actually a woman.

We made our way out of the shade onto the scorching runway and into the small propellor plane, happy with our tan and looking forward to trying the Nonya food and strolling at Jonker's Walk Night Market in Melaka. We half expected to see her amongst the two-person cabin crew, or hear her welcoming us on the flight from inside the cockpit.
