Hello! There are 3 episodes left of Blogtv.sg. If you’re not aware of what it is, it’s a discussion show on Channel News Asia (new episodes Thursday nights at 8:30 pm in Singapore, varying times around the region – and then reruns over the course of the week). The topics are geared towards young adults and have included whether one can grow old in Singapore, what’s it like to be a young risk-taker / entrepreneur, whether the Yellow Ribbon Project has been a success, and more. You can watch past episodes as well as see what was discussed on the Shoutbox, the hosts’ (Phin Wong and myself) written opinions, and the behind-the-scenes photos and videos – all at the archive.
Tonight’s episode focuses on whether Singapore is a nation of overachievers. The context is there are so many #1’s and accolades in Singapore… greatest airport, greatest airline, busiest port, first ever Formula 1 night race, and now also the host for the first ever Youth Olympics to be held in 2010. Guests on the show are Teo Ser Luck (Parliamentary Secretary for the MInistry of Community Development, Youth, and Sports), Ravi Veloo (Managing Director of the Media Campus – and an individual with constructive criticism of the government), and Fergus Kuek (ex-National Swimmer and current law student at NUS).
