[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

[6th Singapore-Australia Joint Ministerial Conference]
On Monday, the Foreign, Defence and Trade Ministers of Singapore met their Australian counterparts for a meeting to discuss how we can strengthen bilateral relations. Our overall relations are excellent marked by close cooperation across all sectors and a high degree of trust. There is also considerable mutual affection going back to colonial days. When we became independent, Australia contributed significantly to our nation-building through the Colombo Plan and many other programmes. The meeting went very well. An informal breakfast planned for an hour and a half became a retreat of three and a half hours.
