"Yes, when you earn more, it means everyone worked hard alongside you," she said. Following a checkup, it was revealed that her blood pressure and oxygen levels had reached a dangerously low level and that she had to be sent to the ICU immediately.

The driver-cum-tour-guide spent all 10 days enthusiastically introducing all the good food and fun tourist spots. When Yixin returned to Singapore, her fluent Mandarin stunned me."
