My 75-year-old sister-in-law, who has acute osteoarthritis, and I were at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on July 19 for the Polygram Forever Live concert.
When we arrived at the venue, I asked a young man who was standing outside if he knew where the nearest lift was, as my sister-in-law has difficulty climbing stairs.
He was very nice and approached Ms Wei Ping of Global Spectrum, the stadium's venue management partner, for help.
She suggested that we take another lift as the one we were supposed to take was quite a distance away.
She even arranged for her colleague, Mr Ping Loy, to escort us to our seats.
At the end of the show, she arranged for another colleague, Ms Lydia, to take us to the nearest lift so we could leave the venue safely.
I am grateful for the personal care these people showered on my sister-in-law.
They have proven that graciousness towards the aged is very much alive in Singapore.
Kwok Wai Meng (Madam)
