    Hello there,

    I am a year 4 student from Geography department in NUS (National University of Singapore) and am currently working on a honours thesis project regarding Pulau Ubin and it’s meanings to Singaporeans. I was wondering if you could grant me a short interview or simply a casual chat on your experience and feelings towards the island.

    Your help would be very important to the advancement of my thesis development and I look forward to meeting you.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me with regards to any questions on my thesis. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you once again.

    Khng Jiawei
