PAY­ING IT FOR­WARD

Expat Living (Singapore) - - Letters - – Carol Grey – Ful­fill­ing Sng Shu Fen

As a big fan of I gave a copy to a lovely Aus­tralian woman who was here on a short visit be­fore re­lo­cat­ing to Sin­ga­pore. My hus­band, a real es­tate agent, was help­ing her and her hus­band to find a home for their fam­ily. I felt sure that it was going to be just as use­ful to her in set­tling in, find­ing new schools, etc., as it had been to me.

I also for­warded her the email about sub­scrib­ing to EL and re­ceiv­ing a free copy of the 2017 When the fam­ily fi­nally moved into their new house, I pre­sented my new friend with the cham­pagne I won from EL for the Best Let­ter a few months ago.

Since then, our chil­dren have had play­dates to­gether and we’re look­ing for­ward to meet­ing up again at our house for Chi­nese New Year. Our two fam­i­lies have clicked so well, and I thank EL for play­ing a big part in that.
