There was a missing child at Cheer 2011

Something occured at Cheer 2011 this year that I have never encountered before. A missing child was handed over to us amid the noise and screams that is normally associated with Cheer. And this time, when someone cried, it wasn’t a cheerleader who was upset that his/her team did not do as well as expected. […]

Singapore General Election: My thoughts

In his editorial for Today yesterday (yes, that was intentional), journalism stalwart PN Balji asks: “Moving on, what kind of a society do we want?” Balji was obviously writing about the Singapore General Elections – Singaporeans go to the polls today.

It was Valentine’s Day yesterday and I hadn’t made any plans in Singapore so I decided to stay in and catch the repeat of the Grammy Awards. Still, I couldn’t not celebrate the symbolic international day of love (gags), so i decided that I would spend some time with one of my many loves (yes, […]

Flashmob shows ugly side of humanity

I know I said I’m taking a break from blogging for a while but after coming across the video below, I really needed to share it. I have two reasons: 1. Because of how flashmobs were originated, we always assume that it needs to have mass group participation to be a success. The video below […]

Stop talking - just do it.

This is going to be a short post but I wanted to share with you a two things with the same message. This is a message that I feel very strongly about. Of late, I’ve been hearing strains of the same thought across the local social media sphere, and I hope that it really catches […]
