Dear Sir / Madam,

My name is Rona Lyn Olivar. I am currently working as an ICU Nurse (Intensive Care Unit) in a tertiary level and private hospital called the Urdaneta City Sacred Heart Hospital which is situated in the province of Pangasinan here in the Philippines. I have learned in our ICU Department that your expert team will be conducted an EKG (Electrocardiogram) thorough training in Singapore. I am writing to you today because I would also like to attend and ask about specific information regarding the seminar schedules, about the program, accommodation and the cost.

Firstly, with regards to dates and time, I would like to ask when will be the seminar held. How many days will it take and how many hours in a day will we have to engage. What time would the training be started and ended?

Secondly, I would also want to know what would be the topic outline of the program, the things we are required to bring something in and what would be the benefits for us Registered nurses who will be attending the seminar.

And finally, I would also like to know about the accommodation and the cost. Since I am living here in the Philippines, and Singapore is about 3 1/2 hours from my country and I have no any relatives or friends in that country. Will you be helping us to settle our staying place or do we need to have a booking in a hotel? And also because it is my first time to travel abroad, I do not know how much will I be needing to spend with it.

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon regarding my concerns.

Yours faithfully,


In the world of today, media has a freedom to encounter the personalities of famous people. In the result, these people become critical between ordinary people; and their personalities also to the viewers. Therefore, the privacy of these people converts into a toy to play. On the other hand, some famous people allow media to enter into their lives because they enjoy the fame among viewers, even it is not in a respectable manner.

There is no doubt that group of some personalities enjoys the fame, given by the media by entering in their private lives. Therefore, these types of famous people perform some questionable activities, therefore they can be discussed in between the people and viewers. However, we cannot blame media in this sort of situation.

Media discuss the famous people by crossing its limits. In terms of entering too their private lives; families; and their relationships. Therefore, it creates serious issues for famous people and also their families to survive independently in the society. In my opinion, the work should be limited to broadcasting general interest news, rather than creating problems for specific famous people.

When media specially electronic media broadcast news on famous people's personalities, it allows a viewer to generate many harsh questions about their live. Therefore, it becomes impossible for a famous person to live his life freely.

In conclusion, media should be grown literate. It must have respect the privacy of these famous people. It should also care about the love from the fans and supporters of these famous people. Because they are the source for increasing popularity for their country.
