Did Ronda marry the Sultan's P.A.?

My supervisor informed me the Personal Assistant to the His Royal Highness wanted to downgrade himself to the business class.

In this sort of situation,the airlines would not mind as the PA's seat was in the first class. The PA was a handsome tan looking well built man of about 35 years old. Later on during the flight he was frank and honest with me. He told me he was eyeing the stewardess working in the business class.

Ronda was an exceptionally gorgeous looking girl of about 24 years of age. She was the most attractive girl on this flight from Singapore to London. No wonder Eddy, the PA was interested in her.

The moment,Eddy downgraded himself to the business class,Ronda knew he was keen on her.
It was a long flight to London,almost 14 hours and the flight was 80% full except for the first and business class. It was during the flight that Eddy made a quick move.By the time,we landed at Heathrow and just before he disembarked,Eddy cheekily winked at me as if to tell me he had already made a date with Ronda in London.

We had a 3 day stay at London Gloucester Hotel on this trip. Most of us crew went shopping at Oxford and Regent Street as there was a big summer sales.
We ate most of the time either at London Chinatown or at Queensway except for Ronda who was busy with Eddy.

On the last night before our flight back to Singapore, Ronda called me and wanted to come to see me in my room. Over coffee in my room,Ronda told me of her adventure with Eddy. I could see the sparkle in her eyes as she related her story to me. She was indeed deeply in love with Eddy.
Ronda and I could get along very well as friends and colleagues and she would never lied to me about the things she told me. Some of the insight I had about the lives of the royalties were fascinating. Ronda told lots of things which she heard about the princesses,princes and their families from Eddy.
A layman like you and I could not fathom the types of lives they lead and how they spent their wealth. It was incredible and I have to thank Ronda for it.

One of the things Ronda related to me was how their conversation was interrupted by a call from the royal family and Eddy was summoned to attend to a little princess.
At the time Ronda was there,they were staying at a posh London hotel. One whole floor of the hotel was reserved for the members of the royal family.

When Eddy left his suite,Ronda was wondering whether it was a test of her honesty.The suite was filled with expensive gold and diamond studded watches and gifts meant for the royal families' friends.The were lots of cash,stacks of crisp 20 pounds notes and US dollars lying around in the opened suitcases.No one was in the room except Ronda. There was a great temptation to pocket some of the watches and cash,Ronda secretly confessed to me but then on second thought,she thought it might be a test for her by Eddy.
When Eddy came back to the suites,he teased Ronda about pocketing the gifts and money. It confirmed to Ronda that it was a deliberate attempt by Eddy to test her honesty when he left her alone with all the luxuries around her.
Eddy showed Ronda the hidden cameras which secretly taped her when she was alone in the suites.
Ronda felt insulted at seeing herself being taped and chided Eddy for doubting her integrity and honesty.She was so angry that she packed her belongings and dashed out of the suites.

I was told that the Sultan had a multi storey air conditioned car park to house his expensive cars back home.The royal families travelled on chartered flights most of the time with dozens of body guards and governess (maids) to care for the kids.
During their shopping spree,they would spent millions of dollars at one go. Meals in the palaces were cooked by specially trained chefs and each meal would cost thousands of dollars, with much of the food to be wasted later on.

Eddy felt bad at the way he treated Ronda and he called her at her hotel to apologise and later followed by a bouquet of flowers sent to her room.
After some persuasion and apology,Ronda was back with Eddy.They had a beautiful and memorable time in London,albeit too short. What went on romantically between the two,Ronda did not tell me.

Over the next few weeks, I met Ronda on another flight and this time she told me Eddy had proposed to her and she would not be marrying him until she had solved her main problem and that was her steward boyfriend.
Ronda and her flight steward boyfriend Steve had been dating for the last few years and although they had planned to get married,Steve's drinking habit and bad temper were obstacles to their relationship.
Now Eddy's proposal was a great temptation for Ronda to ditch Steve.But then,after all these years with Steve,there was a little hesitation on Ronda's part to leave Steve for Eddy.
Will Ronda finally leave Steve and marry the rich and handsome Eddy? We will find out more later on.......


Frankly if I blog beyond what is here then I would be adding my own version. The ending is not as exciting as one would expect but it was the true version.

With Eddy's proposal,Ronda began to be less tolerant of Steve's behaviour. She saw the proposal as a way out of her choppy relationship with Steve. But then the "old time sake" feeling for Steve kept Ronda from accepting Eddy's proposal right away.

One day,something happened that made Ronda leave Steve. By sheer coincidence,she found him flirting with another stewardess.

Ronda quit the airlines soon after her breakup with Steve. She left for KL (Kuala Lumpur),Malaysia where she opened a shop selling branded and fashionable items and clothing.

I heard from reliable sources that Ronda and Eddy did not get married.They remained good friends and Eddy could have help her set up the shop in KL.

The reasons for not marrying Eddy remained a mystery. I have lost contact with both of them and have not heard anything from them or about them.
