Not my loss,it's their loss

Since I've revealed myself as the owner of this blog, I have lost a few so called friends/colleagues. I feel quite sad as I have done nothing wrong except that I blogged the truth about a few of them. The truth is it's not the crew I am talking about but my own ex colleagues.  I have blogged about them as being spoilt and not worth their salt. I have also talked about them being overpaid and under worked  and a few who had taken advantage of their juniors. But then what's wrong with that? It's the truth anyway.
A few were envious of me. As colleague they thought I was "useless" and often made used of and manipulated by them. They would incite me to fight against management for their own selfish end. At the end of the day after making use of me they would benefit by getting their promotions and merit increments.
There are still a few working in the office and have gained their promotion by using me when I was with them.Today,they are badmouthing me.
Some even betrayed me by telling the bosses what was my next move. Once a boss of mine told me not to be manipulated by my colleagues. Well,I never regretted helping my back boneless ex colleagues. I am disappointed about their attitude towards me.
They are also jealous and envious of the things I am doing since retirement. I own this blog which is quite popular and have written a book ( Fasten your seat belts). I have appeared on Razor TV as well as 938 Live. I conduct seminars for cabin crew wannabes as well as selling programs to assist them get their jobs. I was interviewed by Lianhe Wanbao in Feb this year regarding the success of my talks.
Some have approached me to help them set up schools for wannabes but I declined and probably this got them mad at me. I declined because I think it was not vaiable from the business point of view. But those who listened to me are doing better. Ask VJ, JK and a few others I have helped and still helping them make some "pocket money" during their retirement.
In fact if you wanna know I have made many friends through this blog. One reader even thanked me for encouraging her to go for eye lasik. She was reluctant at first but after reading my blog she took my advice and go for the surgery.Today her sight is a perfect 6/6. Another one read my tips for cabin crew wannabes and passed her interview.Today she is a stewardess. So was another girl who watch my videos on YouTube, took my advice and passed her stewardess interview. There were many who became my friends through this blog.
So losing a few so called friends has not caused me to lose any sleep.





Few good friends ( Me,VJ & Edmond) Edmond is now with Lotus Limo

I will also support you and listen to you on 'forget about going back to sq'. Indeed, it is true, I am in my 30s already, they wont want me back..

Don't worry about what some of your ex-colleagues feel and react. This is bound to happen because some of them have been hurt by what you write. There are still those who stick with you in spite of your writing and having negative comments. Maybe you want to write on something new with less of people's sensitive pasts? Just my thoughts. Friend of BT, Edmond.

BT, I went to a PPS dinner three years ago and at my table, there was a lady from Finance (chubby, in her 50s). I asked her if she knew about your blog. Yes, she did. I then asked did she know who is BT. She said SQ management had its few suspects. Interesting!!
