Dear Nisar

Just before Nicholas Fang left the office after watching the closing ceremony of the South-east Asian Games, he remarked to me: "I hope the temps had not caused too much trouble".

Well, Nick and all you other temps, I can honestly say this: No, you did not. Leslie Fong, the Straits Times editor was pretty pleased with the SEA Games coverage, I guess most of us at the Sports Desk were too.

It would be grossly unfair to ignore the contributions of the 10 of you who were employed as temporary reporters during the Games. Although given 'non-glamourous' beats, all managed to bring in at least one page lead each. Congratulations.

Most of you worked well beyond the eight-hour daily stints. Your attitude was certainly commendable. So too was your writing.

I have no hesitation to add that, if you do carry on with the same degree of professionalism shown during the Games week, you will have a sound future in journalism.

It was a privilege working with you. With best regards,

Yours sincerely
