[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

[The Kings Have Set Sail!]
The Berlin Wall to be located at Bedok Reservoir has been shipped from Los Angeles and will arrive in Singapore on 9 June. It will be unveiled on 9 November at the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Wall.

The four panels bearing the graffiti images of two kings are only painted on the West Berlin side. Approaching it from the eastern side meant certain death during the Cold War. That's why we call them the Kings of Freedom. Now, like magi on a long voyage, they are on the way to Singapore.

The Wall is a long-term loan to us from Robert and MeiLi Hefner.
