I RECENTLY returned from Singapore in an evening flight with my family of three.
During our holiday in Singapore, we experienced a lot of unexpected things which I believe are worthy of sharing with the Bulletin’s readers.
On the first day, I unintentionally left my DSLR camera in a taxi we boarded. Several hours later, I reported it to the taxi operator centre with the help of a staff at a hotel where we stayed after we came back from our outing.
By night time we received a call that a taxi driver was waiting at the hotel lobby and to my delight I got my camera back from him.
On the same day, while shopping for a souvenir at one of Singapore’s popular entertainment park, I found a bag pack lying on the floor inside a souvenir shop. I brought this to the attention of the shop assistant and she made an announcement but no one responded. She took possession of it for further action.
On our last day, my kid found a smartphone at one of the computer booths inside the RB (Royal Brunei Airlines) boarding room at the Changi Airport before flying off to Brunei. Ironically, the phone was the same model and colour to the one he has. Similar to the bag pack, we handed over it to the airport staff for their action. They believed that it was left by someone from the earlier flight.
Lastly, as it was a late night flight, my son fell asleep during the flight and in doing so he forgot to take his phone from the seat pocket in front of him when we landed at the Brunei International Airport. We only realised it when we were halfway back to our home.
I made a call to RB the next day and to my delight, my son’s phone was in the safe hands of RB’s Lost & Found Department.
We are truly grateful to the good Samaritan who handed the phone to the authorities. We thank him/her so much and are touched by his/her kindness.
This reminded me of the saying that “When you do something good to others, it will come back to you too”.
To Singapore, you will be our first choice as our holiday destination.
And to RB, we will always fly with you again, again and again.
