Yesterday, this blog was featured in article in the New Paper about older bloggers. I must thank the reporter, Mr Ho Lian Yi for quite accurately reflecting one of the basic goals of my blog, which is to educate and inform young Singaporeans about what their country was like a few short decades ago. He also noted that blogging has helped me to connect with the younger generation. I hope more young people will read the stories I put up here.
I should take this opportunity to thank my guest bloggers; especially those from UK - John Harper, Tom O'brien, Brian Mitchell, Tom Brown and Lynn Copping. My apologies if I missed any name. As for the 'local heroes', as Mr Miyagi puts it, there's my brother Chun Chew, and old friends Chuck Hio, Simon Chu and Adrian Chua, and new friends Peter, Victor, Chris and others who share their stories in the 'comments' section.
Regrettably, there was one unexpected outcome of the above article. I have inadvertently helped to promote gambling in Singapore. I received an email from an old friend this morning, 'complaining' that the number 2867 was sold out, presumably at the the 4D lottery counters.
