A kind act

Remember last year I wrote a post about a girl working at an OCBC branch lending me an umbrella. Yesterday, a similar thing happened ...

It was mid afternoon. I was on the way home. Then it rained heavily. I took shelter at the ground floor of a block of flats. My block was not far away but a stretch of about 30m of my route had no shelter.

After a while I saw a girl coming from the direction of my block. She came to the block where I was waiting. After she walked past me, she suddenly turned back and asked me in mandarin if I needed an umbrella. I said yes. She said she stayed at the block and then offered me her umbrella. I said 'how to return it to you'. She said 'no need, give you ba'.

I took the umbrella and just smiled at her.
