Many of us may be making our CNY rounds of visitations these few days.
To those who are using public transports, do have a warm and sunny smile our bus captains, taxi uncles/aunties, and those working at the MRT stations that you meet.
Of course if you can muster up a greeting even better! But being reticent Singaporeans, a smile will be appreciated and "understooded".
Stay cool, be a teeny weeny bit more patient. You know that most of their Chinese colleagues have taken off or leave for CNY.
To those who are driving, you'll visit the petrol station no? And maybe the LTA personnel on white scooters are not exactly a welcome sight, but pause for a moment how would you react if everyone anyhow park and jam up the place you are visiting?
Due to my mom's medical visits to the hospitals in recent years, I've a special appreciatation and gratitude to all the nurses, doctors, and ah mahs who work tirelessly on 3 shifts even during the holidays. Thank you all very much!
We may have friends or relatives who are now working during the holidays in many sectors of the economy - if we can take the time to show them some CNY cheer, isn't this being friends and family all about?
I didn't have to work today and tomorrow (感恩), but I'll be working this Saturday and Sunday. Don't you worry, I'll have a ready smile and cheery "Happy Chinese New Year" to all!
