On 4th August this year my dear mother passed away.
My sisters and brothers had their many friends and colleagues at the wake. Of course our relatives and my mom's friends were there too.
As for me, I do not have many friends visiting us for the simple reason that I don't want to"inconvenient" them. However, wreaths and donations from some of the ex union leaders were sent to my mother. They included Alan, Rod and surprisingly Eddy too. Alan was on flight and did not attend the wake whilst Eddy is retired and had time to attend. Frankly, I was touched by Eddy's kind gesture ( he was considered my adversary at the last union election). Of course, I don't expect the present union people to attend because I had supported Alan.
Eddy and I had decided to put our differences aside and move on with our lives. As for Alan, I have not had a "kopi" session with him for a year since he lost the union election. When I asked him to have a "kopi", he would tell me he is busy. Poor fellow cos the company must be "giving it back" to him for not spending much time flying when he was heading the union before his defeat last year.
To Alan I have this to say: Fly la and make more $$ now cos when you come back in 3 years time you will be flying lesser and lesser.
To Eddy: Move on la and let the younger asses ruin the show.....Ooops I mean run the show....hahaha.
