[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

[Emergency Preparedness]
Last Sunday's emergency preparedness day between Blk 526 and 527 at Hougang Ave 10 was an interesting experience for me. I got to ride in the special CD vehicle and got hoisted up a rescue crane to a great height. Many residents waved from their flats, amused to see me peering into their units from mid-air.

Our Home Team does a wonderful job preparing Singaporeans for all kinds of emergencies. Of course no emergency will be exactly like the one we plan for but we are less likely to panic as a result. A number of residents felt reassured that they can be rescued from high floors in the event of fire.
