More World Cup Parties

The Malay Mail hosted another screening party at its official World Cup homeground, C18 @ Bangsar Avenue. Pooi San is contented as the venue (one of increasingly few places) has Carlsberg on tap

Word Up! Writers Group World Cup Party at Bar Blonde. The ladies actually sat through the game without flinching. L-R: Mae-V, CY, See Ming & Janet

Random Singapore Pics

McCafe is apparently McDonald's latte spin-off. I originally thought it was a joke

Kiasuland vs Bolehland. Singapore Expo wins with an exhibition venue of 100,000 square meters in 10 halls. It beats KLCC, PWTC & MIECC combined, easily.

Mini-Word Up! meet in Singapore. Me & fellow Worduppers Janice & Emily

Janice at Pepper Lunch; a 'fast-steak' Japanese restaurant. Wearing black is a good idea when tackling sizzling salmon and vacuum-locked miso soup bowls.

In the concrete jungle, even a mall fountain provides endless entertainment for kids & adults alike

Not what you think. It's blogger Jen resting after a long walk from Clarke Quay

Friday night recreation for some teens include hanging out in an artist space cum bomb shelter

Peace From Putrajaya

The Perdana Global Peace Panel Session got off to a good start today. I am currently blogging from the Perdana Leadership Foundation building in Putrajaya, trapped inside a long sleeve batik shirt.

Five of the esteemed speakers from last year's forum (which I also attended) are reconvening. The recurring theme is "Criminalise War. Stop World War IV" and it is chaired by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

I leave the in-depth coverage and commentary in the good hands of fellow bloggers who are following the proceedings up-close.

For me, it offers another brief but opportune glance into the global peace movement. It is also a chance to network with the handful of bloggers specially invited to participate in today's closed door session.

Some may say it is ironic to have a combative leader pursuing peace. Others may contend that the quest for total nuclear disarmament necessitates an outspoken torchbearer.

Whichever the case may be, I hope the underlying and important message against war will not be sidelined.

I have to take leave early as I'm heading across the straight bridge to the annual Broadcast Asia & Communic Asia Exhibition & Conference in Singapore. Peace.

The New & The Old

Rocky & Su Ann exchanging notes at The National Press Club

The new is the old and the old is the young in blogosphere. As veteran journalist Rocky grapples with placing links and pics on his new blog, student Su Ann is a already an old hand at the game.

With more old newbies coming on board, the paradox may be fading fast. The local blogosphere is becoming rightfully diverse and multi-faceted. An encouraging sign as Jeff puts it.

On a related note; come join me and other bloggers at the upcoming Perdana Peace Forum. Go here for details.

First Hand On Second Hand

Singer Janet Lee launches a new blog on secondhand shopping. She's an authority on jumble sale, car-boot sale, flea markets and other such bargains.

Don't forget also to catch Janet at No Black Tie's Dinner With Mozart tonight. I'm not sure if she will appear in any recycled outfit though...
