Singapore Girl: The result of the world's 'most intense' cabin crew training

A quick glance around Changi Airport and you'd find flight attendants aplenty. Yet, none are quite as impressive and timeless as our very own Singapore Girl. Looking as immaculate as ever dressed in the iconic sarong kebaya, the Singapore Girl has become part and parcel of Singapore Airlines (SIA) — an iconic symbol of Asian hospitality. Their bonafide services are widely recognised, garnering a multitude of international awards. Yet what exactly goes into maintaining this perfect standard? A documentary uploaded by British TV station Channel 4 titled «Does Singapore Airlines Have the Most Intense Cabin Crew Training in the World?» gives viewers an insider's look on what makes a Singapore Girl. Or as elegantly declared in their caption: «A look behind the scenes as Singapore Airlines bid to create a whole new level of opulence for first-class travellers.»

3 years' jail for maid who mixed detergent into infant's milk powder

SINGAPORE - A maid purposely mixed detergent into an infant's milk powder as she wanted to get another domestic helper in trouble. The 29-year-old Indonesian committed the offence as she was jealous of the other maid who was working for her boss' sister-in-law. The offender felt that the 25-year-old Myanmar national needed only to take care of the baby, while she had to do all household chores. The older woman was sentenced on Friday (Sept 20) to three years' jail after pleading guilty to attempting to cause the three-month-old girl to consume a mixture of milk powder and detergent. She cannot be named due to a gag order to protect the child's identity. The baby did not consume any of the tainted milk and the court heard that there was no evidence that the Indonesian maid had been abused or ill-treated. Deputy Public Prosecutor Zhou Yang said the maid started working for the baby's uncle in April 2015. On certain occasions, the man, his sister-in-law and their family members would stay together in a house that his parents own.

UK seeks full support for Saudi Arabia’s talks on Yemen’s stability

Author: Arab NewsID: 1568946425101930200Fri, 2019-09-20 05:17 NEW YORK: UK ambassador to the International Organization of the Security Council member states, Karen Pierce, on Monday appealed for full support for the “Jeddah talks” planned by the Saudi leadership to provide stability in Yemen. Pierce made the call during a UN Security Council session on Yemen, saying that the UK backs Saudi Arabia’s efforts to establish stability in the strife-torn country. She reaffirmed the UK’s backing for the negotiations, saying: “We are ready to provide support in any way possible.” The UK envoy welcomed the Kingdom’s pledge of $500 million in humanitarian aid to Yemen and called on all donors to provide additional funding in the coming year to ensure the $4.2 billion aid target was met. Saudi Arabia is the biggest donor in the history of the UN, as well as the biggest supporter of the UN Humanitarian Response Plan for Yemen. It is also the largest supporter of humanitarian operations in Yemen through the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) and other programs such as the Saudi Development and Reconstruction Program for Yemen. The Kingdom has supported Yemen for decades through the Saudi Fund for Development (SFD), and recently through the Saudi Development and Reconstruction Program for Yemen, which has implemented 68 development projects in the country. The Kingdom’s support for Yemen since the 1970s has included the construction of the Saudi Hospital in Hajjah in 1996 and the Al-Salam Hospital in Saada in 1982. Saudi Arabia has been paying $10 million annually to both hospitals to help cover operating expenses (salaries, medicines, maintenance), even though both hospitals are located in areas under Houthi militia control. The Kingdom provided $3.2 billion to Yemen’s central bank to support the Yemeni rial. Saudi Arabia also provided more than $1.3 billion as of August 2019 to help Yemeni traders revitalize the country’s economy and facilitate the importation of basic foods (wheat, rice, sugar, edible oils). More than $14 billion was also contributed to support transport, public support programs, humanitarian assistance, financial support, social services and development projects. The Saudi Development and Reconstruction Program for Yemen has distributed petroleum derivatives to 64 power plants in Yemen. This grants amounts to $60 million per month and was allocated to 10 governorates: Aden, Abyan, Shabwa, Al-Mahrah, Al-Jawf, Hadramout, Socotra, Taiz, Marib and Lahij.
