So, on the day when Thien Nhan's article appeared in the papers,
I did what I always do in the morning: switched on the computer.
When it finally booted up, I keyed in my email password.
Never have I received so many emails from readers in a single day,
all wanting to make donations to help the toddler.
My next few days were all spent on replying to these kind folks and
updating the amount collected, all the while praying that I didn't mess up
and get the figure wrong. (Fact: Maths and I do not get along very well.)
It was really tiring; but also very worth it.
[By the way, due to the huge volume of messages,
I may miss your email or acknowledge your donation.
Do email me again if that happens!]
