A very nice letter to TODAY from Cecile, a foreigner leaving Singapore. Getting letters like this one always make my day, and reminds me of the reason I write.
I would like to mention that I have been very satisfied with your newspaper: interesting articles on both Singapore and the outside world. Starting my day before going to the office with TODAY and a good cup of coffee was rewarding.
I loved reading the letters' section: I don't always agree with TODAY's readers, but it certainly is an eye opener on Singapore Please pass on my congratulations to your contributors: I enjoy reading Neil Humphreys' column. As for Rohit Brij nath, I always skip the sports pages in any newspaper; but believe it or not, he succeeded in interesting me into reading detailed account of cricket or golf tournaments (actual sports I never watched in my life, less even played), thanks to his excellent writing skills.
But I must admit that Mr Brown is my favourite: his great sense of humour combined with his human sensitivity makes me crave for your Friday edition. I hope little Faith will one day grow into a beautiful young lady, finding her place in a society which is not always kind to different people. I am lucky to have two 'normal' young kids and I hope to educate them to accept others' differences.
Finally, I would like to thank the delivery boy who comes every morning at 5.30am. Must not be easy to get up so early, just to make sure I have TODAY in time for my cup of coffee.
