Bilingual free daily gets thumbs up

Posted by jtsmyth8 on January 8, 2008

Singapore’s first bilingual freesheet – my paper – debuted yesterday, giving readers news in both English and Chinese, but which are distinct and not mere translations.

Some 300,000 copies were given out at MRT stations, office buildings, coffee franchises islandwide and delivered to homes as well.

By 9.30am, 280,000 copies of the compact, full-colour newspaper had been distributed.

Another 20,000 copies targeted the lunch crowd from noon to 2pm. (story)
