Bouquets: Kind cabby makes passenger's day

Kind cabby makes passenger's day

I took a cab home on March 21 when I lost my way.

When the fare meter hit $10, however, I realised I did not have enough cash to pay for the ride.

I asked the cab driver, Mr Chong Whye Leong, to stop the vehicle, as I recognised my surroundings and could make my way home from there.

But he insisted on driving me to my block as it would have been a long walk. He also charged me only $10, though the fare was more than that.

I thank Mr Chong for a great start to my week. Small actions really go a long way.

Good service from patient CGH staff

I had to call Changi General Hospital's (CGH) call centre on March 20 to change the date and time for my mother-in-law's medical appointment.

I commend the call centre's Ms Kavi for her good service.

She patiently guided me on the phone to give her the correct reference number and smoothly helped me book the desired date and time for my mother-in-law's appointment.

It was a job well done.

Taxi drivers help to return phone

On March 18, my colleague accidentally left her mobile phone in the ComfortDelGro taxi she was in.

We contacted the driver, Mr Nasser. He told us that the phone was in the cab, but he had already changed shift, and asked us to contact Mr Rafiee.

We did so, and Mr Rafiee took the phone back to my colleague, even though it was close to midnight by then.

We thank these two drivers for their time and their honesty.
