Ng Yen Yen: Stuck in the 19th century?

Which century is Women, Family and Community Development Minister Ng Yen Yen stuck in? I’d like to give her the benefit of the doubt that her ministry has done the necessary research to want to implement this policy – that welfare aid for poor families be deposited into the accounts of the mothers. This was […]

Beijing 2008 - Olympics Opening Ceremony

Pure genius. That’s all I can say about the opening ceremony. From the 2008 drummers in the start, it was moment after moment of brilliance, I thought.
