T1W7.2010 CLOZE 13 What the Straits Times Forum Page Readers Say This is what Mr. Retnam Thillainathan, a reader of The Straits Times wrote in his letter which [1] appeared in the Forum Page on 22 December 2009: Recently, I was having a “cuppa” at a coffee shop. As all tables were occupied, a teenage boy [2] approached my table and asked if he could take one of the empty seats before seating himself. When he opened his Coke can, he spilled some liquid on the table. Immediately, he took out some tissue paper and wiped the table dry. Having done that, he walked over to a bin and [3] disposed of the wet tissue and thanked me for my indulgence before continuing with his drink. That was [4] courtesy at work. I asked him why he did what he did. He said he was Singaporean and had been taught not to litter. I left the coffee shop with my head held [5] high. Another reader, Mr. Andrew Seow [6] expressed his concerns with regard to the false confidence of drink drivers: It is sad that [7] despite all the campaigns on the dangers of drink driving and the enforcement blitz, some irresponsible drivers still choose to drive [8] after their drinking sessions. They not only endanger [9] themselves but also the lives of [10] other innocent road users. Yet another reader, Mr. Lee Khum Thong wrote in to thank the newspaper for revisiting the 2004 South Asian Tsunami disaster: It is a jolting [11] reminder of how fragile life actually is. One of the most poignant paragraphs in the report was the recollection by a volunteer: A few volunteers [12] heard children’s laughter and singing in the distance and, when they investigated, found nearly 200 orphans. “The singing was happy, but so many of them were crying at the [13] same time, and their eyes were blank.” What haunting lines. It is a good time for [14] serious stock-taking of one’s life and to show more [15] appreciation of one’s family and friends.” 1 4 7 10 13 2 5 8 11 14 3 6 9 12 15
