More an animal lover than a crew.
Chief Steward Raymund Wee left cabin crew in the 1990s. He was an animal lover and had spoken to me about his love for dogs and cats whenever we flew together. At that time, I was not very interested in animals and so we did not have much in common except our job.
I remembered him telling me about his ambition of running a pet shop or pet grooming business or something to do with animals. He spoke with passion when it came to animals.
Recently, I discovered he is the owner of Noah’s Ark Natural Animal Sanctuary in Pekan Nanas, Johore.
In NANAS, he looks after and feed strayed and abandoned animals like cats and dogs,geese,horses etc.
He sold his pet grooming business in Singapore and donated all his money to NANAS.
We, as cabin crew is proud of Raymund and his love and generosity towards the poor unwanted animals who would otherwise be put to "sleep".
