Singapore get to see World Cup 2010

Previously many worried for Singapore not be able to watch World Cup 2010. Well the word is out that Singapore is finally having World cup. All that is a jointed effort from Singtel and Starhub venture to pay about US$15 million.

In 2006, it was believed that StarHub paid US$5 million for the telecast rights to the 2006 World Cup. After 4 years, US$15 million. Talk about inflation! I can't imagine how much will it be for 2014 World Cup. (Source )

How important is World Cup to Singapore? Some many take day off during important matches, Neighbourhood Coffee shop gathering and make loud cheers in the middle of the night and to top it off, it has been a topic that talked about during the recent Singapore Parliament by some minister.

Well you can say they are lots of Football lover but do they play football? No. More like a spectator sport which most put their money into it. Maybe that is why it is important ?

Not for me. I was never affected by World cup... wait...I guess I am affected when someone shouted GOAL!!! when I am sleeping and it is not in my home but by the distance neighbors.

No money go Pawn Shop?

When times are bad and many need cash, some may resort to pawn some valuable. Now I am fine with that but if good stewardship is in place there would be not much need on that. Anyway Pawn shop has always been around in Singapore for ages but recently due to casino and TV advertisements, I happen to take note of them again. Now modern and very different from the old Pawn shop I used to know in the neighborhood.

Anyway I saw a Pawnshop advertisement on the local TV channel. The story started two well dressed young ladies meeting up and started to chat. Women one who was a celebrity asked her lady friend who is in her early 20s "Your boyfriend birthday coming, what do you want to get for him?"

"He wanted a new laptop but I don't have the cash for it." answered the young lady. The impression I get maybe she was pursuing her degree. The lady celebrity then answered her "No worry I think I can solve that problem."

Next scene you see both of them enter a good modern Pawn shop (the advertiser) and the young lady handed her jewelry ear ring and get some cash. All of them are happy.

The scene then goes to the young lady handed a gift (laptop) to her boyfriend at a candle light open air restaurant. The guy was very happy and so was the girl. Happy ending right? What is the message you get when you saw this advertisement? When you need money for something, go to pawn some valuable.

Some questions came to my mind. Is the boyfriend birthday gift an emergency? A need or a want? Is that the best way to do it?

Pawning something is not selling something. It is just putting something of value to get cash and later go back to claim back the item. Of course if after the given time you do not redeem the item, it would have sold away. I think it's alright if whatever you pawn belows to you but what if it is not?

I don't know but I feel the advertisement could have done better but somehow it seems like giving a wrong message to me. What do you think?

No World Cup viewing for Singapore?

Not too long ago, SINGTEL and StarHub had bid for the exclusive right to broadcast the coming World cup individually and failed. As the world cup is drawing near, SINGTEL and StarHub finally joined strength together to get the rights to broadcast. However even if they were awarded the rights, only four matches will be broadcast. There are the opening game between host South Africa and Mexico on June 11, the semi-finals on July 6 and 7, and the final on July 11.

According to the news source: Not even the free-to-air telecasts of four critical games will be shown here if the telcos fail to secure the rights from football's world governing body Fifa - at a reported $100million.

Now 100 million is a big sum of money. Do you think it is too high like a milking machine?

Personally I am not really a soccer fan and I feel the benefits are no more sleepless night and everyone is able to preform their day activity such as study or work. LOL
