TIME Person of the Year 2012 (Singapore edition) – The Winner is…

Earlier this month, I ran an informal poll for Alvinology.com readers to vote for who you think deserves the title for TIME Person of the Year 2012 (Singapore edition).

Note that this poll is not officially endorsed by TIME Inc.

The winner for 2011 was the Workers’ Party Aljunied GRC team. 

Who do  you think the winner for 2012 is?

I promised to disclose the poll results at 0000hrs on 1 January 2013.

Without further ado…

the winner is…




Cecilia Sue Siew Nang with 21% of the total votes:

Cecilia Sue Siew Nang - Person of the Year 2012 - Winner
Cecilia Sue Siew Nang – Person of the Year 2012 – Winner

Last minute addition, Michael Palmer did well too, coming in a close runner-up with 20% of the total votes:

Michael Palmer - Person for the Year 2012 runner-up
Michael Palmer – Person for the Year 2012 runner-up

The top two voted winners aptly round up a year of sexy news that hogged the news headlines throughout 2012.

Hopefully, we would see less of these in 2013.

Happy new year everyone! Do continue to support Alvinology.com for your daily dose of    light reading! 🙂


Singapore’s first post-independence Olympics Medal

Congratulations to our Singapore Women Table Tennis team for a group well done on Sunday. They brought Singapore out of a 48 years Olympics medal drought.

They may have lost the Gold medal to China’s team, but it was a good fight still for the silver medal.

Even though all three of them are not Singapore-born athletes, I am sure most Singaporeans are still extremely proud of their achievement when they witness our national flag being hoisted up at the prize-giving ceremony.

Well done Team Singapore!
