[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

[Happy Mother's Day ]
1. It is nice to see the way Mother's Day has been embraced by all racial and religious groups in Singapore. I suppose the reason is obvious. Without mothers, God bless them, where would we be? I understand from friends who run restaurants that Mother's Day is much more celebrated than Father's Day. I suppose there is also a reason for that.

2. Last Saturday, I attended two Mother's Day celebrations one after another, the first at Bedok Reservoir Rise RC and the second at Punggol CC. At both locations, I distributed carnations to mothers. Red carnations were the favourite. A few men came up to me to ask for flowers for their wives which was touching. Both organisers asked me to bring carnations home to my wife which I did to her pleasant surprise.

3. Here's wishing a Happy Mother's Day to all mothers!!
