    Pacquiao to arrive in Singapore today

    Manny Pacquiao, the biggest name in boxing currently, will be in Singapore today.

    The superstar accepted a Singapore Tourism Board (STB) invitation to promote the Republic in his home nation. Pacquiao will film two scenes for his popular television series, Show me da Manny, in Singapore during his two-day stay here.

    "This is our third attempt at bringing him in," said Ms Marie Li, STB's assistant communications manager.

    "We've been trying to get him down to help promote Singapore because of the huge interest among travellers from the Philippines but Manny has been very busy."

    Pacquiao, nicknamed the Pacman, will stay at Marina Bay Sands and is scheduled to film segments of his show at Resorts World Sentosa tomorrow.

    While it is believed he is open to meet with Singapore's Youth Olympic boxers, any such get-together seems unlikely.

    "Unfortunately our boxers are confined to the Games Village," said Ms Li.

    "It would have been great because he could serve as an inspiration for them." Ian De Cotta

    You're welcome. I was looking for some program during Pacman's visit in Singapore but I couldn't find any.

    Are you kidding?

    To be good at boxing, we need to have a solid youth programme. Then our parents will say "no" because it's too violent.

    I think an easier option would be to get Manny Pacquiao and his fellow boxers from the Philippines to come fight for S'pore under the Foreign Talent Scheme. Any sport we want to excel in, just FTS it! Since S'poreans have absolutely no problems recognising FTs as S'poreans, it should not be an issue.

    We generally suck at sports because we don't have the KILLER INSTINCT to score.

    Notice that while I was in rugby ... we live too comfortable a life ... where excellence in studies matter more than in sports.
