A Hong Kong mum showed the world just how to fly in a post-Covid world: at home, with plenty of imagination and clever tweaks to household items.

The Facebook post on 30 January began with the mother describing her 'flycation' to Taipei, and a series of photos detailing just how she achieved that.

"Going on a flycation at home. Having an inflight meal today, once it was served, it was almost as if we could smell what it's like to be on a plane," the post read.

First, there's the realistic plane meal, complete with inflight entertainment playing the safety video — from an iPad — and a pair of old Cathay Pacific tickets from her earlier trip from Taiwan to Hong Kong last May.

Her caption: "The perfect inflight meal, am most proud that I actually found a bread roll that's so similar to those served on a plane. #breadashardasastone."

Naturally, it was a window seat — made possible with the washing machine doubling up as a plane window, and a view outside the plane "that's actually daddy's underwear" her hashtag explained.

The post also added how everything simulated came from household items, such as the white food tray that was converted from a handkerchief box from school.

Three days later, a new post of the duo in flight attire went up; this time with the mum donning a faux Cathay Pacific uniform and the child gamely posing as a pilot.
