Journey of the Youth Olympic Flame Day 1

7 August 2010

The Youth Olympic Flame had arrived in Singapore after travelling through Berlin, Dakar, Mexico City, Auckland and Seoul. In March 2009, the International Olympics Committee decided that torch relays for all future Olympic Games will be held within the host city. An exception was made Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games (SYOG)!

The torch relay for Day 1 of the Journey of the Youth Olympic Flame (JYOF) was held within the Central Singapore District, covering places like Ang Mo Kio and Bishan.

I helped Samuel, a friend I made via the MillionDeedsChallenge portal, to video his historic moment. I also helped Sin Yan, my fellow SSEAYP

North East Celebrates! 2010 Youth Olympic Games @ BNSS

4 August 2010

Set up a Publicity Booth for North East Celebrates! 2010 Youth Olympic Games (YOG) at Bedok North Secondary School canteen to promote the youth event to students during their recess time.

The event would see 17 Youth Executive Committees (YECs) of the Community Clubs within the North East District come together for a live telecast of the Official Opening Ceremony of the YOG.

Response for the tickets was overwhelming. Guess no one wants to miss this historic moment.


Also took time to enjoy patronising the canteen stalls. Yummy and healthy to the pocket!

Singapore 2010 Journey of Youth Olympic Flame (JYOF) Torchbearer Briefing


31 July 2010

Went to Singapore Polytechnic for a briefing for the inaugural Singapore 2010 Journey of Youth Olympic Flame (JYOF) Torchbearers.

I got to be selected as a Torchbearer by posting deeds on the MillionDeedsChallenge website. The website was a brainchild of a secondary school student and it encapsulates the three values of the SYOG: Excellence, Friendship and Respect!

Also got to meet up with a friend I met at MillionDeedsChallenge website.


Our torchbearer hosts also enacted a short skit on what is going to happen on the day of our journey.


It's nice to know that I would be part of over 2,000 Singaporeans that would have a chance to carry the flame!
