ANG PENG SIONG'S OLYMPIC DREAM DESTROYED BY RIGID NATIONAL SERVICE OBLIGATIONS?

While I was read Singapore swimming legend Ang Peng Siong's story of how National Service ended his swimming career and Olympic dreams I couldn't help but shed a tear for this supremely talented Singaporean. I shudder at the thought of how many other talented Singaporeans suffered this cruel fate of having to cut short their Olympic potential because they had to serve 2 years of uncompromising National Service. How often have we been asked to give up on our sporting or artistic dreams to pursue an engineering job instead?

OUT OF TOUCH POLICYMAKERS ARE DESTROYING SINGAPORE'S HAWKER FOOD CULTURE

This is disgustingly preposterous. Transient executives running the new hawker centres build for and by public monies with not very well thought out goals and aims are dimming the lights on our already fading public hawker food culture. It is good the govt is building new hawker centres to keep this failth alive, but not so good they are going the fill-in-the-form route for pte management companies and hawkers.. allowing it to fester, with no cogent guidelines that seeds the future of street food culture here.
