Many are gone :(

 Quite a number of the retired senior crew has passed away within the last 2 to 3 years. People like Mark Poh, KS Goh, TH Goh, Aleem, Aloysius Fernandez aka Smokin Joe,Gary Goh,Haridas, Kookie and many others were gone. Could this be due to old age (most are just over 60),Covid or the side effects of Covid vaccines? There are also those who are sick and still struggling to live.

As a reminder please be civil and do not degrade the deceased in your comment. Those whose comments which I deemed as inappropriate will not be published or have been deleted.

Can't believe Smokey is gone!

 I can't get over his demise,because Smokey was such a fit man who was always positive in his outlook. Many years ago he was our cabin crew football captain. He did not smoke but drank a little to keep healthy. The last time I met him after his retirement was at a cafe with a young lady. When asked how he was getting on with retirement he replied that he was in good health and was having a blessed life.

Silence is golden


Anonymous said...

Imo,talking about Prez hopefull more eyeball.Let him heal,if you talk on Tkl versus Tar ,you will definitely get more views.Go with the flow,not a small stream !

Above comment left by a reader. Why want me to talk about the presidential hopefuls? I know it is a hot top in SG at this moment. I rather have less "eyeballs" (views) than to be sued if I say anything about SG politics. To me silence is golden when it comes to politics.

Why recruit more?

 SIA is still recruiting cabin crew aggressively. We don't know how many more does it need. Going by the interviews in SG and overseas plus asking former crew to apply is a sign of desperation. It should invite those who was "forced" to quit because of the reluctance to be vaccinated against Covid-19 to return to work. These ex crew should also be compensated for salary lost. If SIA does that then I will more respect for the airlines.

A public holiday dedicated to the mountains in Japan

Strange it may be but today is a public holiday called Yama Day, a day when the Japanese pay respect to the mountains in Japan. It also has Marine Day and other public holidays dedicated to mother nature.
In fact, the schools are having a long summer holiday, lasting 1 1/2 months. Due to the heat (max 36c only on a few days)most children are confined to their homes. If they do leave their home due to boredom, most will spend their day in the air conditioned shopping malls.

My colleague is sick!

One of my ex colleagues is very sick. I don't want to mention his name as he values his privacy. Hope he will recover quickly after his operation.
We are now old and most are in the 60s and 70s. A few are in their 80s. At our age the concern is our health. We have spent a big part of our life working and bringing up the children. Some of us are grandparents. There is nothing left in this world for us to purse except good health and to some our religion. Hope you younger people out there treasure your youth and good health.

SIA walk-in interview for cabin crew in KL

 There is a walk-in interview in KL, Malaysia today. Some wannabes have asked me whether they should travel to KL for the interview (These are Singaporeans). Since the interview is for Malaysians my advice is not to go. There is a likelihood of being turned away. However, I knew of a few cases whereby Singaporeans who attended had been recruited. In this respect, if one is desperate to get the job then by all means go. If you are not allowed to attend or being turned away then you would have wasted your time and money. Be patient and wait for the interview in Singapore.

SIA still recruiting cabin crew

 SIA is still recruiting cabin crew from Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand etc. Must be desperate, I supposed due to crew shortage. It was a lesson learned not to let go too many crew when there is a downturn like Sars and covid. Well it's better not to criticize or else I may get myself into trouble. I will leave the task to the cc management and see how they will deal with any downturn or epidemics.
