[About this blog] Inspired by local soccer player Mike Lim during my rookie reporter days at Singapore Polytechnic, I set up this blog in August 2002. I feel that blogging is a novel platform to document interesting facets of my life and my thoughts on certain issues. [Email blogger] ephraim@singnet.com.sg

[New Soccer Field]
1. Last Saturday, the new soccer field next to Punggol CC at Hougang was officially opened. The ground is still a little uneven with the smell of fertilizer still in the air. But it was a happy day when we saw the kids running up and down the length of the large field.

2. Victor Lye and the members of the CC Management Committee have exciting plans for the coming years. Promoting soccer will be one. A samba band composed of SMU alumni may also use the CC as its base. There is already a toastmasters' club. As the community centre exists to serve the local community, I hope that more ideas will be proposed by residents in the Punggol-Hougang area.

3. We need to refurbish the existing facilities as they are rather dated. The CC also needs to be more weather-proof against rain and heat. Unfortunately, construction costs have shot up with the economic boom and more money has to be raised. We may also have to scale back the plans. Many people have come forward to help. The more the merrier, of course, because many hands make light work.
