My gratitude goes to the staff of Yew Tee MRT station and considerate passengers who helped me when I felt unwell in the train on Dec 23 last year.

Passengers on the train helped me to a seat and then out onto the platform at Yew Tee MRT station, where I had a few moments of respite under their watchful eyes, while waiting for a family member to pick me up.

One young man, in helping me carry my bags out of the train, left his own behind. I hope he got his belongings back.

My sincere thanks to the SMRT staff who accompanied me as I made my way home in a wheelchair, as they wanted to ensure that I got back safely.
