#227 abusers at sports stadium

Generally Singaporeans are fortunate to enjoy sports stadium where the public could use the stadium for free.

Today, to my great disgust, there was animal pooh on the wood-chips track at the Gombak stadium. The wood-chips track is specially designed for those athletes to exercise while recovering from injuries.

Unfortunately some users not only bring their animals to accompany them at the stadium but abused by allowing their animals pooh along the track! Shame on whoever this person…!

Whoever had done that obviously did not care about the worker responsible in maintaining the stadium! If there were complaints, who got the firing line? The worker!

I believe many young budding athletes do not know facilities available. They do not take pride to care for the facilities available to them. They expect the sports councils to hire staff worker to take care of the facilities.

Musicians take care of their instruments yet…athletes take for granted or do not?!

On occasions especially during school holidays, I found children playing on the long-jump sandpit…these children would intelligently use their hands to sweep the white sand into the drain while the mother exercised away nearby!

#197 amazing children saved mothers’ lives

Amazing what a child understands and does in times of emergency!

In England, James Cooke reports

A three-year-old boy came to his mother’s rescue by dialling 999 after she had an epileptic fit.

Jack Thomson called the emergency services from his mum’s mobile phone. When the line went dead he found another phone and dialled again.
