Bouquets : Misplaced bag of gold found

Misplaced bag of gold found

On May 18, an associate entrusted me with a bag of valuables and gold worth some $15,000, which I was to return to her a few hours later.

However, during that time, I visited the toilet at Bugis Junction basement one, only to leave the bag behind when I left.

It took me an hour to realise I had misplaced it. Frantic, I rushed back to the mall to hunt for it, but it was gone.

Mr Yip, a cleaner with IS company, noticed my panic and realised that I was looking for the bag. He opened the toilet cabinet and produced it. Nothing was lost.

His kindness and honesty touched my heart. I thank him for all his help.

Letter of thanks a big encouragement

As one of the founders of Dover Park Hospice, I was gratified to read Mr Seah Yam Meng's letter thanking our staff and our volunteers for the care that his late mother received during her stay (Great service before, after mum's death; May 19).

This gesture is a great, heartwarming encouragement to our doctors, nurses, volunteers and other staff, and I thank Mr Seah for it.

I hope that other patients' families and caregivers will consider adding some words of thanks to obituaries as well.

Plenty of smiles and laughter in ward

My mother had a total knee replacement at Singapore General Hospital on May 5.

During her hospital stay, she was well taken care of by the nurses and staff of Ward 76, rooms 12 and 22.

They carried out their duties with plenty of care, love, optimism, smiles and laughter.

My family salute them for their work spirit, and thank them for taking such good care of my mother.
