    Hmm are they allowed to name those peaks? thought most peaks would have been conquered and named by now. Seriously I dun think the names would ever be entered in actual geological maps.

    In the end, the names were chosen based on an elaborate system of drawing straws and allocating points.
    Why spend 400k when names can be decided based on (an elaborate system of) drawing straws?

    lol... i think it was rather 'embarassing' if they really named the peaks as murtabak and mee siam or wad... i mean, it's so DUH!

    sounds so uncoool...

    they should have named them after the 3 prime ministers in recognition of the work they done for Singapore.
