TIMOR LESTE BEATS SHAMEFUL SINGAPORE IN UNDER 18 FOOTBALL

In yet another series of embarrassing results, Singapore’s Under-18 footballers lost 3-1 to Timor Leste’s U18s at the on-going ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) U18 Championships on yesterday. Timor Leste was not even an independent country when Singapore's S-League was born. The supposed superior professional league, that was formed so that Singapore have a bigger pool of professional footballers who are supposed to dominate the region in the years after the formation of the S-League. What a joke!

So, they may compete with Singaporeans for jobs, when the primary reason for capping Singaporean graduates is limited jobs for them in the first place? Does this make sense to you?

VIVIAN BALAKRISHNAN CRITICISE SUPERPOWER, ANOTHER TERREX SAGA COMING OUR WAY?

He was obviously referring to China. He even said that no one can control the agenda of the superpower. He is very right in that count. No one can control China, least of all a Minister well known in Singapore for not being able to control the Youth Olympic budget. Now he target China in his speech, although in the capacity of an ASEAN Ministerial meeting.

The last time a Singapore Minister, Prime Minister no less, said something challenging China's authority, our Terrexes were impounded. Big mouth Minister Vivian had opened his mouth, what next will be impounded now.

NG ENG HEN: TERREX ISSUE - OUR LAWFUL RIGHTS

Adherence to the rule of law has been the fundamental basis for peace and stability for the last half century in Asia and indeed the world. It enables countries, both large and small, to build trust and confidence in one another, cooperate and prosper together.

AUNG SAN SUU KYI VISITS SG: MAN PROPOSE CITIZENS & NGOS TO STAGE PROTEST AS LEADERS CAN'T DO MUCH IN OFFICIAL CAPACITY

Because of ASEAN charter of non-interference in member states' domestic affairs, I doubt there is very much our leaders can do or say in their official capacity. But the ordinary citizens and NGOs can stage a protest at strategic locations where she and her entourage has to pass.
