On Your Marks!

Big news this past 24 hours in the local media.

Firstly, Singapore managed to secure the 2010 Youth Olympic Games. This is the first Olympic event to be staged in this country and the new NUS Village will be home to many of the athletes when they are here.

Secondly and perhaps of equal importance in many local minds, was the drawing of the $10 million Hongbao lottery.

According to today's papers there were ten winners. Needless to say our ticket numbers did not feature in the 'winners' circle' but no doubt the 10 new millionaires will be very happy.
