    i was at the badminton games, like i said, the students enjoyed going tea breaks and toilet breaks much more than the game, i was there to witness this.

    also, they were all shock to see the price of the snacks sold there, $6 for a hotdog etc, they had to borrow money from the teachers or each others and share the food later.

    how does that contribute to the enjoyment of the games?

    Not a food issue but on the road.

    YOG bus involved in chain collision along PIE, no injuries

    SINGAPORE : There has been a chain collision involving seven vehicles on the PIE towards Tuas before Clementi Avenue 6 on Friday.

    One of the vehicles involved was a YOG bus.

    The SCDF received the call at around 8.45am.

    It despatched two ambulances.

    Police said there were no injuries, and no one was rushed to hospital.

    The accident resulted in traffic congestion, with the vehicles involved taking up two lanes.

    But it was cleared within an hour. - CNA /ls

    But then students don't show up, or stay for a while only, so how? Many empty seats yet, people can't get it...........got people want to watch also can not. They should have just paid for all tickets for all seats and let the entrance be open for all lah!

    So, people can go in and out, free seating.......am sure the seats won't be empty for long anymore

    If all the YOG events are free seating then it will not just be $300mil liao..Like that ppl also will complain, especially those who don't watch YOG.. ...no way to please everybody... In addition, future sports events organisers in other countries will not be pleased as we "spoil market"...



    As for whether students really enjoy the event, I guess each experience differs. But if it is me, I will enjoy it~! When I was their age, I do enjoy watching sports event on TV, e.g. SEA games. Whatmore some schools even postpone exams because of this, even better for me when I am a student.

    That's the problem.. it's sad to see how MOE wastes tax payer's money..

    MOE should, thru the various school channel, first find out how many students want to watch, then juz buy the required no. of tickets.. this way, there's is more tickets to be available for purchase by the public and the students also no need to complain that they're forced to watch the competitions.
