Get For Me: Chinese New Year Greetings
Today is the third day of the Chinese New Year. It is also the year of the Dragon. My wife, Sindy, and I would like to wish all our Chinese surfers on the net

While many of us were busy celebrating the Chinese New Year, some fifty members of the Korean community in Singapore yesterday turned up at the funeral of Mr Shyn Ho Kyung's wife and son at the Mount Vernon Crematorium. Though Koreans regard attending a funeral as inauspicious on the first day of the Lunar New Year, these Koreans were not bothered. The men even cried in public.
This show of support for a fellow colleague whose 35-year-old wife, Mdm Oh Eun Sook, his 5-year-old son, Shyn Hong Wook and his 2-year-old daughter, Shyn Ji Yun, were knocked down by a car at Alexandra Road just outside Ikea Store on Thursday night overwhelms the heart.
We, at Getforme.com, wish to express our condolences to Mr Shyn Ho Kyung.
