Diego Maradona – In Memoriam

29 November 2020

I’ve always believed it difficult for a young Singaporean to reconcile the excesses and geniuses of Diego Maradona. Now I know that we’ve got four ASEAN Football Federation Suzuki Cups, but we have never made it quite so far continentally (much less globally) as to suffer the honour of a Hand of God.

22 Years Later, Scotland Wins Again

14 November 2020

To grasp the magnitude of Scotland’s momentous qualification for the 2021 European Championships, one has to go back 22 years to our last qualification for a major international tournament.

Top 10 Fitness Videos For The Physically Unfit

13 August 2020

Like many people, I took lockdown as an opportunity to try and get abs. While I never fulfilled my ab destiny, I did watch hours of fitness videos in an attempt to inspire me into working out, with varying degrees of success. The videos that I have therefore chosen are incredibly biased, but I found […]

Steel Steed: Fife by Bicycle

4 August 2020

In recent months, the bicycle has stepped into the limelight as the poster-child for post-coronavirus transport. It’s a safe, inexpensive and socially distanced way to run errands, get some exercise, or explore the world around you. Plus, it has low environmental impact. It’s also fun – there’s nothing quite like the feeling of accomplishment of […]
