Bouquets :Strangers take time to reunite parents

Strangers take time to reunite parents

On Deepavali, my parents were to meet in Ang Mo Kio but missed each other.

Mr Tay Eng Chuan saw my mother in distress and stayed with her as she tried to locate my father. He stayed until my brother came to take her home.

Meanwhile, Mr Terence Loh came across my father searching for my mother. Mr Loh assisted my father in calling me, and stayed with him until I reached their location.

Both my parents eventually made it home safely. I thank Mr Tay and Mr Loh for pausing in their busy day - a holiday, no less - to help my parents.

Quick help in hour of need

I have a 17-year-old son who is prone to epileptic seizures.

On a walk around our estate recently, he suddenly had a seizure. My son is tall and it was difficult for me to support him all alone and ensure he did not sustain any injury.

I called out to two people at the void deck of Block 772, Bedok Reservoir View for help. They rushed to my aid. One of them, Amin, stayed with us until my wife and our helper arrived, and ensured that my son was safely transported to our car.

I thank Amin and his friend for helping me in my hour of need.

Superstar service at bakery kiosk

It is a pleasure to be served by Ms Delphine at the Delifrance bakery kiosk at Coronation Plaza. She runs the kiosk single-handedly, but she gives pleasant and personalised service. Her willingness to share recipes and her good product knowledge enhance her service.

I recently found out that she is one of the five Superstar Award finalists in the Excellent Service Award 2016 for the Singapore food and beverage industry.

I congratulate her and am glad her daily efforts and hard work are recognised and appreciated.
