So much much has been said about the stewardesses,now what about the poor stewards who also in many ways contributed to the success of Singapore Airlines' in flight service? Poor GS (GS=galley slave..oops I mean galley steward la),don't get much recognition.
In each galley complex or class (except for first class),SIA usually roster one GS to carry out meal checking,cleaning of pots,pans,galleys etc. and meals preparation,serve meals...
These handsome guys do not appear in the cabins as often as the SIA girls unless there are beautiful female passengers around.They would then be busy pretending to serve the female passengers and do some PR ( passenger relation or chatting up the pax)and try to get hand phone numbers etc. Once too often,some of the stewards may not be interested in female passengers. These are the ones who would like to go for macho looking male passengers ( aiyo must explain wan ah....they are ah kuahs la or gays),usually ang mohs.
If you are the ah soh or ah pek type,be rest assured,they would not be casting their eyes upon you. Ooops I forgot to mention here that even if are an ah pek but have lots of $$$ and sit in the first class the girls may eye you too,ok?...just like ex stewardess Beh who got rich by inheriting a bundle on the demise of a rich ah pek pax.
Coming back to the GS,most of them don't fit the above description but only 10% do.
An average GS is hardworking and saves 70% to 80% of their salary so they can buy their future 5 roomed HDB flat and maybe their dream Nissan Sunny.
As for the Malaysian GS, they would probably own 2 houses back home by the time they have been with SIA for 10 years and a Potong Sala Malaysian car.
During their night stop overseas, you would probably spot them wearing diamond stud earrings and tattoos all over their bodies. You would seldom see them eating in restaurants because they rather tar pow their food back to their rooms and eat them in front of the TVs with perhaps a glass of mineral water from you know where or orange juice. Most of the GS do not smoke because cigarettes are expensive and besides,there are no foc cigarettes on board. They do not usually wear expensive and branded clothing.Their gay colleagues would usually be the ones wearing branded clothing,shoes and carry LV bags.
