thanks for the information, Tim.

i called up PictureDesk, and the chap on the other side said it was kinda old... so um,... no go? :D

anyway, here it is...



i was on my way back home on a bus, when i noticed that an excavator had earlier tipped over the side. no idea about injuries/casualties, but coupled with the evening traffic, there was an even more trying bottleneck at the junction...

Wa... How did that happen? How come no police to solve this? At least the traffic police should come and control the traffic. :think:

A story of a female rider who dies while on a ride in Malaysia on her "500cc bike", then I saw RVF on it... RVF seems to be a 400cc bike, so till now, I have been asking around:"anyone heard of a 500cc RVF?" I really wanna know the answer...

sorry, being a little out of topic here.

Perhaps a story like this has less interest to The Straits Times right now because it belongs to the genre of soft news.
Right now, there is a huge number of hard news, especially with the foreign desk and the financial desk. So, it has lots of hard news stories to fill up the space in the newspaper rather than filling up the same space with soft news.

Glossary: Soft news - news stories which are about human interest stories. What happened locally and all that.
Hard news - Mostly from the political, financial and foreign desks. These stories affect lots of people around the world and are more difficult and boring to read than soft news.

:D

nope. thanks for the concern, but nothing of that sort happened. i just called to ask if they wanted it, but i was told it would be too old to be of any use. :)
