There is a persistent rumour swirling around that Fred has gone. One ex flight attendant called me the other day when I blogged about Fred's departure and he told me it was merely a rumour. However, after some investigation, I found that Fred has been MIA (Missing In Action) for the last 9 years or so. No one, not even his closest friend and batchmate Vijay knew about his whereabouts.
Fred was a great colleague of us. He took the Golden Handshake together with the 18 of us back in 2003. He married a Malaysian stewardess half his age and resided in Penang, Malaysia.
The last time I saw Fred was that year 2003 when we left SIA. Fred was a bubbly and jovial chap who never ceased to make you laugh with his funny jokes.
I know it's not a nice thing to talk about Fred's departure or anyone for that matter unless it's true. But since none of us have heard from him I dare conclude it's a case of MIA, kindly put.
Fred if you are still kicking around, please respond to this message. Leave a comment or something cos we are very very concerned.
