[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

[Visit to the UK]
Singapore's relations with the UK are excellent. In my meetings with Foreign Secretary David Miliband and FCO Min of State Lord Malloch-Brown, we reviewed our bilateral relations and discussed the G20 meeting, Russia, Kosovo and Myanmar.

On Thursday, I had a good session at Chatham House and visited the interesting Shah Abbas exhibition at the British Museum.

On Friday, I went up to Cambridge to give a lecture in conjunction with the University's 800th anniversary and met Singapore/Malaysian students over tea. On Saturday, I'll be hosted to lunch by the Master of Christ's College. Flying back to Singapore after that.
