Life

It’s difficult to fully define what this vertical covers, but it encompasses everything that makes life enjoyable – anything that shines a light on your day belongs right here in Life.

We will never have another like Khairul Amri

We will never have another like Khairul Amri

It was a moment that I will never forget. Singapore football has had its fair share of glorious moments over the years, but that was the first one I witnessed live with my own eyes albeit through live television. As a young boy not even into his teens, I remember sitting on the sofa watching intently as the second leg of the 2007 ASEAN Football Federation (AFF) Championship final played out in Bangkok. The match was finely poised, with the aggregate score at 2-2 after Thailand had levelled the match through a 50th-minute strike from Pipat Thonkanya. With extra-time looming,…

The Peranakan vs Godmama: Where will you go for your Nyonya food fix?

Just like that, without even a whisker of warning, Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur scored one of the greatest goals in the history of the National Stadium in the 93rd minute to hand the English side a dramatic 3-2 win against Italian…

ICC 2019 Match Report: Boo boys mar Man Utd win in front of record National Stadium crowd

A record-crowd of 52,897, made up of largely Manchester United supporters, witnessed the Red Devils edge Inter Milan 1-0 at the National Stadium in the International Champions Cup last Saturday night. While the sea of red that engulfed the stands and the noise levels that emanated throughout the stadium were worth marvelling at, the boos directed at Man Utd captain Ashley Young were certainly not. Young, 34, was one of 10 substitutes brought on by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the 63rd minute, but his introduction was met with an appalling chorus of boos when his name was read out…
