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."

What is wrong with you guys, the INCUMBENT TEAM at FAS?

You say one thing to cull off the AGM and then now you call for EOGM without making one attempt to engage in dialogue or consultation or discussion with us and come to some form of agreement on the proposed amendments.

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

OLYMPIAN QUAH TING WEN PENS SINCERE NOTE ON HER BRO & COMPETING

On a more personal note, for all naysayers and the keyboard warriors on those acidic anonymous forums, for a brief moment I wish I just what their names are and what they look like, and perhaps a dissection of every accomplishment they have ever achieved.
