PETALING JAYA: The eldest daughter of chief steward Andrew Nari, who was on board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370, took to Instagram to express her sorrow on the eve of the second anniversary of the plane's disappearance.
“Before you left, remember when you were standing by the door, asking me if I wanted to follow to send you to the airport, but I said no because I was tired?
“I never thought that was the last goodbye,” said Maira Elizabeth Nari (pic) on her grief-filled posts on Monday.
Her father was among the crew of the ill-fated flight, which vanished during its journey from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014.
Maira said that last scene with her father was still vivid in her mind, adding that she had slept early that night, and only found out what had happened to MH370 from a friend the next afternoon while at work.
“If only I followed,” she lamented, wondering if things might have been different if she had done so, or if it would have turned out the same.
“The most unexpected thing can be the best and beautiful in life, but the most unexpected thing can also be your worst nightmare,” she said.
Maira recounted how her mother used to tell her and her brother to always properly say goodbye to her father and anyone else as anything could happen.
“I wish I could turn back time but sadly it’s impossible. I can only change to be better and learn from my mistakes.
“As of for now, have a safe flight, goodnight,” she said.
Flight MH370, carrying 239 people including passengers and crew, is believed to have ended its journey in the southern Indian Ocean.
