TODAY: Don’t kill yourself trying to get noticed

There are much better ways of getting your blogs noticed – try being interesting! WITH more than 60 million blogs in the world, what are your blog’s chances of getting noticed?

Congratulations Singapore Gymnastics team!

A gold medal at the SEA Games may not figure much in the international sporting arena, but it’s an important step for the sport of gymnastics. Even more importantly, it goes to show that if you put in bits of the right stuff in your preparation, you’re very likely to succeed where $3 million into a soccer team with a whole load of foreign names won’t. So, come on, Singapore Sports Council, let’s keep supporting the right people and help local athletes in lesser known sports. Especially sports which don’t resemble a money-making venture. Congratulations again, Singapore Gymnastics team. Then again, watching you train week-in, week-out, me and my colleagues always knew you were gonna do well.
