The Straits Times: Published

posted by cockroach//蟑螂 at Thursday, April 20, 2006 11:54 PM

As some of you already know that the interview got published on Tuesday, under The Straits Time, Home Section, page H7. Everything is quite big actually, got a big shock when I saw the interview.

Everything was so sudden! Miss Chew came to me and said “The article publish today, under home.” And I got one big reaction: “Really?!?! I haven’t brought today newspaper yet!” Anyway, I got to know that the reporter did email me, but to my G-mail which I don’t check it much as I do for hotmail.

Now, membership of the website had hit 1,000! Believe it or not, I only expected only 100 user sign up only. We also got sponsored by OpenCube to host or website for MUCH CHEAPER PRICE and more sponsors coming soon I guess. I received quite a number of E-Mail, which I don’t really have time to reply them. If you are one of them, wait for my reply, okay?

Everything seems to be so sudden, so surprise.

From now on, email me at, I will read email from there everyday also from now on.

Tips for better English.

I notice you are very fond of using the word, 'got'. In the first 2 paragraphs alone, I counted 4 times.

Try to work on this one bad habit the next time. See if you can replace 'got' with a more appropriate word.

For example:

"As some of you already know that the interview got published on Tuesday, under The Straits Time, Home Section, page H7."

can be rephrased like this:

"As some of you already know, the interview was published on Tuesday in the Straits Times, ..." (actually, the word 'already' is redundant, but this is a common mistake).

When you say the interview got published, it gives the impression that the 'interview' was alive, and it did something to get itself published.

Don't use 'got' so often, unless you are deliberately trying to communicate in Singlish; even then, you can replace some of them words like 'kena'.

You are also very careless in your punctuation. But lets work on one bad habit at a time.
