    Default Singaporeans celebrate the New Year in parties islandwide

    Channel NewsAsia
    01 January 2010 1856 hrs

    By Cheryl Lim,

    SINGAPORE: Thousands of Singaporeans gathered to celebrate and ring in the New Year in style.

    At the Pinnacle@Duxton, it was a New Year in a new home. The skybridge was packed with new residents eager to take in the view from above. And they were rewarded for their patience, with unparalleled view guaranteed to start 2010 with a bang.

    Crowds in Sembawang too had their fill of fireworks, but not before a medley of performances by dance groups and regional acts, with a touch of magic sprinkled in.

    Things heated up at the Marina Barrage as well. Revellers danced the night away in a massive 12-hour party, where fiery beats helped chase away the troubles of 2009.

    Sentosa was also packed with partygoers. 20,000 people gathered on Siloso Beach at five different parties, with plenty of foam to help them slide smoothly into the New Year and fireworks lighting up the shoreline at the stroke of midnight.

    And it was a song-and-dance-extravaganza at Marina Bay. Singapore Idol finalists performed to a packed crowd at the floating platform, while fringe events at the Esplanade helped set the tone for a brand new year and decade.

    Fireworks light up the night sky at the Marina Bay in Singapore to usher in the New Year.

    I think I better understand your Issue... Pls correct me if I'm wrong.

    MetalOrange :- Threads are for discussion and 'cut & paste'-ing articles (even well cited references / sources)

    Loh & Singapore Also Can Thread (jug8man getting into the head of Loh, perhaps...) :- This thread is mainly for me (Loh) to share news about Singapore, since I'm (Loh) very proud of my Nation. I (Loh) do so by copying and pasting & stating source of articles in this thread.

    Admin & Mods (jug8man getting into the head of admin & mods , perhaps..) :-
    There is nothing new about copying & pasting external articles as long as there is proper referencing of the source of the article......
    ...however, BCforum has never experienced a thread such a rapid pace of posting up articles such as Singapore Also Can which 'drowns' discussion itself.

    Should we (admin & mods ) allow this to continue or leave it alone?



    Pls let me know

    So I would like to start this section dedicated to Singapore's past, present and future achievements in all fields of human endeavour, whether in economics, social development, politics, education, sports, the arts, design, medicine, science, law, engineering, IT, media, Guinness World Records, etc, etc.

    We should as far as possible cite public references to lend creditability to what has been publicised.

    That is not surprising. It is pure arrogance and disrespect for others. Many neighbours like Malaysians, Indonesians, Thais, and Philippinos, so often the butt of this arrogance, may have something to say, perhaps from personal experiences.

    Default 25 elderly couples renew marriage vows

    Channel NewsAsia
    01 January 2010 2128 hrs

    By Evelyn Choo,

    SINGAPORE: Twenty-five elderly couples spent their New Year's Day by renewing their marriage vows.

    Some have tied the knot for more than 30 golden years, and age is certainly not stopping them from showing their love for each other.

    The event was organised by the South West District to celebrate the role of grandparents in families.

    Joseph Lum and Emmeline Tsai said: "Marriage is a long-term commitment. For the younger generation, when they embark on it, it is a new phase in their life.

    "To stay committed, to stay loving for each other, whether during bad times or good times, this is what we call true love."

    I'm glad that you can vouch that my comprehension skills still work. I was getting worried after reading that other veryyy long & winding post

    Simple solution actually.
    haha. I think RM15 per 100cc is better. so any singaporean GT-R 3.8L should pay 38 x RM15 per entry.

    This is only fair lah

    If not we can also cut water supply

    Speak for yourself. Don't try to bring in neighbours ... to try to paint a bad picture of our MM with your unsubstantiated remarks.

    Some BCers here would vote for Pemuda as PM if he has political ambitions.
    If that is the case the water problem can be solved between kawan2 lah.

    This is what I hear from Malaysians, Indonesians, Thais, and Philippinos all the time, especially from Malaysians and Indonesians. It is not specifically about your MM (Minister Mentor of the REpublic of Singapore) but more about the typical Singaporean. I know this is not healthy because these 3 neighbours will have to live with each other. Perhaps a little humility and less arrogance and boasting will go a long way to reducing the friction.

    nahh..... cant do that.
    they so called "claiming" to keep our shopping centres busy. then trying to condemn the stolen vehicle. this and that. if we start to talk about money, this will harm the relationship. i also know that "we" Malaysian too, keep their shopping malls busy. "we" do help a lot in their economy. try stand on the causeway and count the number of motobikes crossing to S'pore every morning of working days. while working there, need to pay like what we do here to EPF. after termination of working there, the money cant be collected back. i am not sure how much of our countrymen's money stuck with S'pore but i am sure it is tens of million.
