MARKET FISHMONGER SPENDS HOURS FINDING WOMAN TO RETURN HER LOST WALLET

What a day. What started out as a simple errand run turned into a cross-island merry-go-round involving a lost wallet in Bendemeer, a police report at Towner Road, multiple stops in Tiong Bahru, and finally a pickup at Bukit Panjang.

Suffice to say, a wonderful family, in the form of Cindy, her husband Ah Huat, and their son, had found my lost wallet, waited 45 min for me to show up at the hawker centre where I’d left it, decided to deliver it to my home, waited another half an hour for me to show up, left their card, and waited at home for me to finally reach mine and call them.
After cancelling and then reactivating my cards, making and then cancelling a police report, and having my poor dad drive around for 4 hours, I finally got my wallet back (it had everything in it, including my IC and house keys – I could’ve been robbed blind!) They even invited me into their home for a seat and a chat.

So the best thing I can think of as a thank you to them is to share this story, and let people know that you can find an honest fishmonger in Hougang, should you ever find yourselves in need of seafood!

Their day starts at 3am, so to spend 3-5pm chasing me around with my little pouch in hand is so much more than I could’ve asked for. Immensely grateful and so heartened that we have such warm and helpful folks in our midst.
