TNP reader 'wanted to raise awareness' about fire
After learning that his sister-in-law's car had caught fire in Sengkang on Aug 25, Mr Shee Gim Cheng, 45, immediately called The New Paper hotline to alert us to the incident.
The manager said: "I wanted to raise awareness so the relevant authorities would know about it."
He has been a loyal TNP reader for 29 years and reads both the print and online versions daily.
In another incident, Mr Joshua De Rozario e-mailed TNP to relate how his friend was hit in a road accident in Johor Baru and later died.
Wanting to inform the public on what to do if they are in a similar situation, Mr De Rozario, 25, a student, said: "TNP was the first paper that came to mind."
The report was published last Thursday.
Each hotline caller will receive a $100 Peranakan high-tea voucher for two at The Peranakan Singapore.
