Teo Ser Luck, the guest of honour at the YMCA charity event at Hong Lim Park on Saturday, wrote on his facebook that Roy’s apology is “a step forward”. He also decided that it was appropriate to apologise also for the trouble he may have caused. He explained that he felt that part of the inconvenience was caused because he was at the YMCA event as much of the protesters’ anger was actually directed at him.

In response to the statement issued by U.S. health authorities that excessive lead was found in “Bo Ying Compound of Eu Yan Sang Hong Kong", the Eu Yan Sang Group has appointed U.S. lawyers to liaise with the U.S. authorities in order to effectively protect consumers’ health as well as our Group’s reputation. The Group has never exported any "Hong Kong Bo Ying Compound" to the U.S. Bo Ying Compound of Eu Yan Sang in the U.S. is produced locally in Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) facilities to ensure that our product fully complies with the quality assurance standards.
The National Parks board (NParks) explained that they allowed both the CPF protesters and the YMCA hold their events at the same Hong Lim Park because they have never had any conflicts there before. They pointed out that there have been past events when multiple events occurred there at the same time before but there was never any trouble.
This is the heading of an article by ST’s Bureau Chief in Washington, Jeremy Au Yong, and Rachel Chang in Beijing over the weekend. The gist of the article is that Asian countries, particularly China, are not doing their part to kill the IS terrorists. And it is unfair for to the Americans to carry the can.
We refer to the articles “Telco fines channelled to help more poor households get broadband, computers” (Straits Times, Sep 28) and “PAP Community Foundation moving into eldercare, but ‘still opening’ pre-school centres” (Straits Times, Sep 29). New schemes everyday? Almost every other day, if not everyday, we have stories in the media about new piecemeal schemes to help lower-income Singaporeans. 8,000 households get internet?
Yesterday, Teo Ser Luck posted a facebook status criticising Roy Ngerng over what happened at Hong Lim Park on Saturday. He wrote that Roy should apologise to the children and that it was ridiculous for Roy to claim that they didn't know there would be special needs children on stage. However, what is interesting is that Teo kept on editing his facebook status about the incident several hours after he posted it.
Right on cue, the mute button was toggled off. Politicians who stood idly by and played dumb for weeks while a 87 year old pioneer generation member was in grave danger of being robbed and pillaged by a foreign intruder were suddenly jostling to leap into a feeding frenzy. Note the common thread in the cacophony of protestations: Manpower Minister Tan Chuan-Jin: "I am appalled. We now heckle special needs children? Vile. Total and absolute disgrace."
