South Asia Earthquake and The Sunday Times

On Saturday evening, the news channels of BBC, CNN (and some say even Channelnewsia) were full of reports on the catastrophic South Asia earthquake. BBC and CNN even had live reports from the disaster site with heaps on information on how relief efforts were going on.

I was hoping to get more information from the newspaper on Sunday. But when I saw the headlines that said....

$160m plan to transform Aljunied

.... I flinched. The article on the earthquake was on page 14 or 15.

Oh well, I guess Singaporeans are not interested in reading about thousands dead and suffering in some far flung Northwest Frontier province when there is an election to prepare for.
