"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

Why Muslims can't rise to Senior Positions in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF)

From 2011:

"Before dinner officially begins, a punch ceremony is held to concoct a mixture that embodies the SAF"

"This punch ceremony that we have is to mix a few drinks into a concoction, to show the flavor of our SAF. And the service chiefs led by Chief of the Defence Force and the SAF Sergeant Major will do the honors."

"Water, an important part of life, signifies purity and neutrality. Bombay Sapphire gin, the color of the sky and named after a gemstone represents the Air Force, the jewel of the SAF, always ready, capable and above all.

Blue Curacao, the colour of the sea, represents the Navy and conveys importance, confidence, efficiency, authority, stability, and unity.

Campari, a vibrant red, represents the army and symbolizes dynamism, speed and confidence which are the backbone of the army.

Johnnie Walker gold label. A deep golden hue is a mark of power and refinement, and represents excellence in leadership, grandeur, as well as richness in every aspect.

When mixed together, they form a concoction that represents and brings together the many aspects of the SAF."

I find it funny they call this an SAF tradition when this is the inaugural dining in.
