WRONG FOR ORGANISERS BANK ON MESSI THEN SAY HE'S NOT COMING

A football fan felt cheated that Messi will not be playing in tonight's match despite repeated assurance that he will turn up. He blamed the organisers for not having integrity and by making use of Messi's star-draw to make money. "Promoting the match using his undisputed star-draw, then belatedly and limply attributing his absence to "personal reasons", without even a cursory attempt at an explanation, displays an alarming lack of integrity and competence, and a blatant disrespect for football fans on the part of the organisers. It has been widely reported that Messi was preparing for his wedding at the end of this month. Surely a responsible organiser would have scrupulously confirmed if he would be part of the game."

We may be able to accommodate the 6.9 M population with 700,000 more homes, but all in pigeon holes of 50 stories high blocks almost side by side, is not what we see as quality living. Quality living is not how many homes is being built and how long the train lines will be, it is how well the homes are built and how the environment is like without one looking out of the window and all one sees is human beings and another block of HDB flats all over the place.

BEFORE SCHOOLING, THERE WAS 'FLYING FISH'

I found time to meet Peng Siong and wrote this article because I feel his close brush with an Olympic Medal is a story worth re-telling, as the new generation of Singaporeans may not be familiar with him. It puts into context how our Olympic Dream began. The article is out today. You can read it here on my blog
