Formula One has come and gone, and with it a new champion crowned, though sadly, not on our shores. Sebastian Vettel took the championship in Japan where he cruised into fifth position while the rest of the pack (Alonso, Hamilton, Webber and Button) were racking up points for second place.
But while Germany and Red Bull Racing are celebrating, the remainder of Europe isn’t quite so chuffed about the political and economic policies that are in place. WallStreet has been replicated across the globe, and throngs from London to Tokyo are protesting the governments that appear to be aiding the few while forgetting the many.
Along with the protests that are currently raging across numerous parts of the world, some of which have unfortunately turned violent, Singapore’s own RafflesPlace movement appears to have largely fallen on soft ears. Our apparent apathetic reaction to a world-reaching event is either a demonstration of the country’s economic stability or the impassiveness of Singaporeans who are far more concerned with retail therapy than spending the afternoon demanding the need for accountability.
While the West appears to remain in a largely restive and immobile state of indecision, the East is like a train on speed with endless new developments each day. The need for transformative leadership in every part of the world is more important than ever, yet that appears to be lacking.
Economic rejuvenation is something that largely escapes our comprehension and drives us to the nearest pub or into the bottom drawer of our desk for a drink. Social rejuvenation, however, is what we excel at, and we’ve committed ourselves to revitalise you, body, mind and soul, in order to perform your very best. Our handbook will take you to the best and brightest that the country has to offer to improve yourself and lead you on to the next level of success.
We’ve also managed, after much difficulty and challenges, to conclude our anniversary celebrations and the sophomore August Man A-Listers competition, which has attracted the attention of audiences internationally and locally. We hope you managed to join us at the festivities at Avalon; otherwise, check out our Facebook page or website for scene-stealing moments to amuse yourself. We’re also proud to announce the third edition of August Man that will appear in Indonesia in 2012, and more upcoming franchises can be expected.
Till then, stay tuned.
