    They will ask students to fill up the seats

    I remember going to the S.E.A. games at the old National Stadium when I was a student

    Glad to heard you are OK

    Should always carry your compact camera with you so that you can snap pictures of traffic offenders

    A friend of mine have a traffic accident 2 years ago (another car hit him from behind at traffic light junction when the light is red ). He use camera to snap pictures as evidences. Luckily he take pictures. The Malaysian driver promise to pay for damages but later ignore his phone call. My friend SMS him and threaten to go to court because he have already file a police report. The Malaysian driver later agree to pay up.

    The Straits Times said 80,000 tickets bought by MOE
    I guess that is where the "free" tickets comes from -> tax payer money

    If the gov want foreigners money, they should actively selling the tickets oversea

    That's bad......

    Does the gov make money from the YOG..? or only the retailers benefit from better business?

    For the Olympics, the organisers can make a lot of money selling the tickets overseas rite..

    If SG only sell tickets within SG.. and somemore to stat board.. that's very very bad investment.....

    There was no last host, SG is the first host. And yes hosting the WCG would get more attention. Unfortunately video gaming is under appreciated and seen by many as a complete waste of time. Well, it is only a waste of time in SG because there are not enough funds allocated to it, not because we have a lack of talent. It's a shame how most people don't see this.

    Reading books is a valid hobby but video gaming is not. That's how people see it, isn't it? It's sad. We have much more potential in gaming than football, if you're talking about local talent. Speaking of which, how many locals are in the SG team (and not bench warmers)?

    wah... like that also can blame the rings...

    blame the colour of the paint, blame the rain, blame the other car, blame the road and blame your wife's height...

    just tell your wife to slow down.
