SINGAPORE - Former air stewardess Eunice Chua had one of the biggest shocks of her life when she showed some compassion to what appeared to be a down and out passenger on one of her earliest flights.
Madam Chua spotted the middle-aged Chinese man on a plane from Kuala Lumpur to Kuantan in 1962 sporting a pair of worn-out canvas shoes.
The ex-Malayan Airways air hostess had poor eyesight but was able to make out that her passenger's toes were sticking out of holes in his shoes.
She felt sorry for him and gave him an air sick bag full of Thye Hong biscuits.
The man in return handed her his business card but it was not until later that Mdm Chua found that he was a millionaire in KL.
