Out-of-bounds office

The place where we used to work for donkey years are out-of -bounds to us,retirees. I am talking about the SIA Training Center at Changi,Singapore.
Even if we wanna deposit our identity cards (I/D)with the security guards we are still not allowed in. Why ah? If STC is a sensitive area like a nuclear plant or military base we could understand.
Jobs interviews are being held quite regularly there and strangers (job applicants) are allowed in.....puzzling isn't it?
Perhaps,we retirees are considered enemies of our airline (work place).
Many of our friends are allowed to visit their former work places after they have retired or resigned from their jobs. There isn't any big fuss amongst many companies/organisations about letting their ex-employees visiting them except SIA.
You may ask why I am making a fuss about the above right? The answer is very simple. Sometimes we may want to visit our colleagues and have kopi or a meal with them in the staff canteen. Nutting official though but after working for 30 to 40 years with our company we do at times love to bring back the memories of our work place and the people there.
Aiya SIA dun be like that lah,dun treat us like lepers after making use of us for a generation or so. Dun give the excuse of "due to security reasons" to keep us away lah.

because the subsidised food in the air-conditioned canteen is cheap and good and the parking is free,that's why the retirees want to go back.

This is the typical SQ "plastic culture" which is encouraged among CC. In front or when u r around, must act nice. After the back is turned or when no longer needed, they will screw you. SQ breeds insincerity hence NO LOVE LOST.

What a Moron!Have you been in a cave?Ever since 911,every installation,commercial or otherwise had relooked their security,and especially SIA STC.National Carrier will always be the prime target for any terrorist.You are retired,live with it.I am sure SIA had provided you with a comfy life.They have to move on with new blood being a commercial entity......and I suggest you move on too!

poor uncle BT who loves his ex company dearly but now treated like a leper. Forget sia la unkle its a bump company which exploit ppl. Look at how they make use of the young gals as stewardesses. After they get older sia dont even want to retain them as trainers nor office staff. Unkle u be better off making $ blogging or writing a book (heard ur book is coming out soon)
