Bouquets: Thankful for help in recovering purse

Thankful for help in recovering purse

On the afternoon of May 16, I lost my purse in the Kampung Admiralty shopping area.

It contained about $50 and my Passion Silver senior citizen concession pass.

I only realised it when I got home and tried to pay my taxi fare. At the suggestion of my husband, I called the nearby Marsiling MRT station. The SMRT customer service officer patiently took my particulars and promised to call if they found my purse.

Half an hour later, a staff member from Marsiling MRT station called to say that my purse had been found. I am grateful to the cleaner who handed over my purse and also very thankful to the SMRT customer service staff, who acted so promptly. A big hurray for Singaporeans.
