Never mind about all these! Saturday seems to be good for me (and maybe to all collectors too) as no need to worry about work, albeit need to endure the congestion at the causeway as many are crossing over to JB during the weekend. There are fewer people at the post office, especially on Saturday afternoon, therefore the postal staff have more time to entertain my many different requests ... thanks : )

The Youth Olympic Games (YOG) flame was lit in Ancient Olympia, Greece last Friday (23 July 2010). To minimise the risk of disruption during the torch run, YOG torch will not be carried in relay for long distances during its international leg, like in previous Olympic Games. Instead, the YOG flame will be taken to iconic sights in each city.
