Thanks to last week’s edition of The New Paper on Sunday, Mr Rodney Koh found his long-lost sister.

We had featured Madam Thanapakiam, 68, who had been given away as a baby.

She was searching for her biological family and all she had were a few names and a photo.

The grandmother of seven had mused that it would be a great Christmas gift if she could be reunited with her mother and siblings.

Her wish came true.

Mr Rodney Koh said: “I saw her age and then the name of my parents in the story. Then, I knew for sure it was the sister we have been looking for."
