Jesus healed a cabin crew


Before prayer


After prayer


This is a photo of an ex crew who had a skin issue called Pigmented Purpuric Dermatosis . According to his doctors the reason or reasons that caused it is a mystery. However, I believe it was due to his job that caused it. Long hours of prolong standing and walking in a pressurised cabin might be a contributory factor. The doctors also told him there was no cure for PPD. No cure?
Prayer can cure, yes have faith and ask the Lord Jesus to help for the bible states He is the healer of  all diseases and sicknesses.
After praying for him in the great and merciful name of the Lord Jesus Christ, he is now healed. Praise God!

As for the passengers, sitting too long in a crammed aircraft cabin can get you DVT or Deep Vein Thrombosis which in most cases are fatal.

Either way, whether you are a crew or passenger you may face some kind of problems related to flying, not to mention crashes and disappearance of aircraft as in the case of MH 17.

Ex MAS stewardess eyeing for .....


I felt a soft and gentle feminine touch as though from someone I knew. She was behind me as I was going up on the escalator to a shopping mall. Suddenly, I felt a brief surge of sexual lust as I turned to face this voluptuous woman. Of course, I was excited and wanted to know why did she touch me.
When we reached the second level of the building, we left the escalator and got to meet each other face to face.
"I recognised you, Luke" she exclaimed with much excitement and enthusiasm. " I was studying your website about how you've helped so many people achieved their dream of becoming stewardesses and stewards with Singapore Airlines", she told me with a look of envy in her big brown eyes.
I stretched out my hand and she accepted it. " I am Eca,a former MAS stewardess" she introduced herself.
Eca is an ex Malaysian Airline stewardess of about 25 years old. She quit MAS recently and is trying to get into SIA but without much success.
She suspected that SIA does not employ ex MAS crew. I told her SIA does not discriminate against former cabin crew from other airlines. She pleaded with me to help her. I told her I can only help her if she attends my talks and besides there is also no assurance that SIA will take her.

I led Eca to a cafe so we could sit down,have a drink and chat. She followed me. Throughout the one hour of chatting I was observing Eca. She had everything that an airline would want in a flight attendant. She was articulate, well groomed, beautiful and vibrant.

Before we parted company,Eca told me she would sign up for my talks sometime before the 31 January 2015 cabin crew interview in Singapore.
On that note we left to do our own things.

Zzzzzz...we are so tired and sleepy




The crew are tired and sleepy especially during and after a long flight. They get a 3-hour break for flights that are over 14 hours duty time. Worst still if they are night flights because most crew could not sleep before the flights. During the 3-hour break in the aircraft the crew may rest in the crew bunks. But there again, not all crew could sleep during the break. After the long and tiring flights into overseas stations,all crew would be looking forward to checking into the 5 star hotels provided by the airline to get their well deserved sleep or rest. If they are arriving into Singapore they will be going back to their "6 star" home.

Oscar Pistorius sentenced to five years in prison




I am not going to comment on whether the jail term of 5 years for Oscar Pistorius is fair or not. The judge must have considered all the evidence as well as the arguments put forward by both the defence and the prosecution before finding Oscar not guilty of murder but instead guilty of culpable homicide.
In my humble opinion, the outcome of the verdict will depend on how good or otherwise on the defence counsel or prosecutor of the trial.
Remember the case of my ex-colleague who was stabbed to death at the old Sea View Hotel in Katong back in 1970? The accused was armed with a big knife and the victim was unarmed.
The accused was charged with murder but his lawyer the late David Marshall did an excellent job and eventually got his client off the hook.
Many thought the accused would at least be be found guilty of manslaughter and given a long prison sentence for taking the victim's life but the judge thought otherwise.

The post on the Sea View killing of my ex- colleague is here.
