I am just very shaken at the moment by the news of the missing Air Asia flight. I pray for the safety of the passengers and crew onboard and for the families to remain strong through this extremely trying time.
It broke my heart when I skimmed through the list of passengers on board. Some are clearly families who are flying to Singapore to celebrate the new year.
Although it is a different route, this is what my family has always done for the past few years. And for us in Singapore, taking the Indonesia-Singapore route just feels like commuting on a bus. You just assume that you will reach your destination safely because you have done that so many times. So it really hits home.
So my thoughts are with all of them, who are waiting at Changi Airport for the arrival and news of their loved ones.
