The balmy beaches and clear waters of Mauritius make for ideal escapades.

And that is where Miss Janel Chee, 19, spent a five-month internship as part of Temasek Polytechnic's Diploma in Leisure and Events Management course.

As a guest relations officer, the final-year student received, ate with and translated for tourists, mostly from China, at Club Med Albion, an all-inclusive resort.

Celebrities' Instagram snaps in Mauritius have made the Indian Ocean island nation a honeymoon hotspot among Chinese couples.



This internship was nothing short of an amazing adventure…

Miss Chee remembers that it was an awkward start. She was hesitant about her fluency in Mandarin, and the Chinese guests were initially not used to having the staff join in for meals.

But towards the end of their stays, they gladly passed her their name cards.

Miss Chee told The New Paper: "Guest interactions soon became my favourite moments. It is as if we are old friends who can talk about many things. Some have even offered to host me in their home country."

This bolstered her confidence in talking to strangers.

"Entertaining guests is my job but they are not going to approach me. So, I have to (muster my courage) and go up to them," Miss Chee said.



I don’t want a desk-bound or mainstream job like being an accountant. I enjoy interacting with people by hearing their stories, which then become part of my story.

Also part of her job was entertaining and caring for four- to seven-year-old French and South African children in the resort's mini-club while their parents were off hiking and snorkelling.

She typically oversaw about 15 to 20 children daily, and the French words for "come", "sit down" and "toilet" soon became part of her day-to-day vocabulary.

"It was a challenge because (some of) these children do not understand English. If I mispronounced my words, they would stare back at me. That made me feel quite helpless," she said.

Working at the resort was a "dream come true" for Miss Chee - she had a memorable trip to the Club Med resort in Bintan when she was 12.

There, she participated in the mini-club's activities and engaged in water-balloon fights by the beach, facilitated by fun-loving guest relations officers.

She said: "Before I left, I told myself I want to work at (Club Med) next time."

The laid-back, friendly and hospitable Mauritians also made for a nice change of pace from hectic Singapore.

Strangers greeted and smiled at each other, while shopowners often attended to visitors by asking how their day was going.

"Everyone was enjoying life, and no one was in a rush. I had to get accustomed to that, which caught me off guard at first," Miss Chee said.

The internship has confirmed for Miss Chee that her passion lies in the service industry.

She said: "I don't want a desk-bound or mainstream job like being an accountant. I enjoy interacting with people by hearing their stories, which then become part of my story."

UKHIYA, BANGLADESH When Rohingya refugees began arriving in Bangladesh, after violence erupted in Myanmar's northern Rakhine state in August, local residents were puzzled to see some toting small solar panels on their shoulders.

"They were carrying solar panels with them, I was surprised. I would never do that in such a situation," Mr Jashim Uddin, a tea stall owner said.

Many reported making an arduous trek lasting between five and 15 days along hilly and waterlogged roads - but the hazardous journey did not prevent them from carrying the solar panels with them.

"This solar panel saved my life," said Mr Ayatullah, 18, once a shopkeeper in Myanmar and now a resident of the Thaingkhali refugee camp in Bangladesh.

He had to avoid Myanmar's army when he fled the country.

"They were killing everyone they came across. We had to depend on information from our people about the safe route, and a mobile phone was needed for that. This solar panel helped us to charge the mobile phone," he added.

Refugees used the panels, each the size of a laptop computer and fitted with a battery and a small light, to charge mobile phones and provide light at night on the jungle roads to Bangladesh, they said.

Mr Mohammad Yaser, another refugee, said that solar panels were cheaper in Myanmar than in Bangladesh, with a 20-watt panel costing 20,000 kyat (S$15). In Bangladesh, an equivalent panel costs eight to 12 times as much. Many of the refugees said they knew about this price difference and it was another reason to take their panels with them.

Security concerns also were a worry.

"When we arrived in Bangladesh, we had to stay on the street for the first few days.

"We powered lights with the solar panel and the light made us feel safe," said Mr Abdur Jaher, 45, who fled with his wife and their five children.

Dear Thelma, If I leave my sugar daddy, who will pay for my car

Dear Thelma
Early this year, I signed up as a “sugar baby” on a dating website for young women looking for older men (name of website withheld – Ed.). At first I thought it would be fun to just date older rich guys.

Then I actually met this guy from the website and it started as just fun but turned serious. We have had sex many times and it is amazing each time. He gives me an allowance of RM5,000 every month, even more than my pay which is only RM3,500. He also pays for my car installment every month.

The problem is he is married and his wife found out. She came to my office in a luxury minivan along with her driver and maid and spoke to me in the car park.

She told me she could accept her husband having a sugar baby, especially someone as young as me. I am 29 and she is 45 but she wants me to follow a few rules. What I need to do is to make sure to be discreet ALL the time and to take down all the photos I have with him on social media. I must make sure her friends never find out.

There are women who have accepted the fact that their husbands have needs that cannot be fulfilled by the marriage. So they turn a blind eye to their husbands’ extramarital activities. This does not mean they are happy with the decision. Nor does it mean that it is an easy decision to make and live with. [2]

That is not a problem but I am in a dilemma. Is what I am doing wrong if his wife knows and is ok with it? I want to be married too and I know if I continue with him, I won’t have a chance to get married and will continue to be a mistress.

If I give up now, I can’t afford to pay for my car. What do you think I should do? – Confused Sugar Baby

Dear Confused Sugar Baby
I had a look at the website you mentioned. It promises “mentorship” and professional connections but what I’m seeing is something quite different.

With sexual harassment being endemic it may feel like you’re being clever at taking advantage of old men who lust after young women, but what I see is that you are being conned into prostitution.

While you think about that, let’s start by taking a look at your particular situation.

I’d say the first question is, are you hurting anyone? You have convinced yourself your boyfriend’s wife is fine with the situation. From your description, I’d disagree. The lady is terrified people will discover her husband is having an affair with a girl young enough to be his daughter.

While her circumstances are unclear, the poor woman is stuck in a relationship that hurts her deeply. And you can’t deny your part in that. So you need to ask yourself whether you can still be happy, knowing that you are hurting someone.

Can the poor woman ever learn to love and trust again?

The second question is, are you hurting yourself? You’ve made your values very clear and while you get 100% for openness you must know they are not the norm in conservative Malaysia.

You ask if it’s wrong, so let’s look at some possible consequences of your choices.

First, old men lust after young women. You might hold on for a year or two, but pretty soon you will be replaced with a younger girl. Where will that leave you? What is the age limit on a sugar baby?

Second, studies show that the stigma, low autonomy and other issues that come with putting a price on yourself are linked to depression, self harm, suicide and other mental health problems.

Third, suppose your private life becomes public knowledge, what will happen then? Ask yourself, how will your family and friends react? Also, would you be able to keep your day job?

Finally, Malaysia’s laws are formulated around religious principles so you could be inviting trouble. You’d need to talk to a lawyer to ascertain all the legalities, but at the very least your boyfriend’s wife might cite your affair in a divorce. She might even be able to sue you for damages.

You will make your own choices, but I strongly suggest a more conventional path is a better choice. If you focus on your career, you can make your own money for decades to come. And for your own happiness, find a partner who is free to love you openly, and who will still love you when your Sweet Young Thing days are over.
