Beam with pride, join in the fun…

They broadcast images of the YOG opening, hoping that us as Singaporeans would feel proud and euphoric.

I see the fireworks and the gaudy stageworks and think of the money that MCYS should have spent on the poor and destitute instead.

I see the sumptuous meals being prepared for the athletes and feel outraged that the volunteers are not having the same food.

I see the lanes reserved for the YOG buses and wonder about the taxi drivers that will bear the next round of ERP increases under the pretext of dealing with traffic congestion.
