I HAD the opportunity to accompany my wheelchair-bound retiree friend for her doctor's appointment at Sungai Bakap Hospital in Penang recently, but was appalled by the unhealthy practices at this hospital.

THE Kelantanese are fond of imitating sounds. This is how they named objects and places. In the old days, they named the gate of their sultan's palace "Pintu Pong", because the sound the gate made as it shut would give off a "pong" sound.
THE writer of the letter "Simple language can be more effective" (NST, Dec 5) gives the impression that his aversion to big words like "humongous", "equanimity" and "quintessence" might be due to the fact that these words are polysyllabic in nature rather than any offensiveness inherent in them.

IT is likely that the article "Creating responsible digital citizens" (NST, Dec 1) was in response to the incident of an 11-year-old boy raping a 6-year-old girl. The popular reaction to this incident was the assumption that the boy had learned of sexual acts from the Internet. This may be true.
I SUPPORT the call to introduce a Digital Citizenship in school, especially at the primary level.
