Good move by Yaacob’s sis

In Hong Kong, Media on 15/12/2015 at 7:11 am

She was the deputy editor of ST and earlier this yr joined the SCMP in HK. Great timing. Alibaba will pay HK$2.06bn (US$266m; £175m) for SCMP.

Alibaba Buying South China Morning Post, Aiming to Influence Media The Chinese Internet giant said the deal was fueled by a desire to improve China’s image and offer an alternative to the biased lens of Western news outlets.

Given her role* in ST as a cheerleader, class-monitor and enforcer for the PAP administration in ST, she’ll fit in very well under the new regime in HK. Her husband, Cherian George, a vocal social activist here (calling for a free press here is his obsession) but now lecturing on media (because of his obsession) in a HK uni, must be a happy man.

His wife can put her well-honed skills to good use in the service of Alibaba  to improve China’s image and offer an alternative to the biased lens of Western news outlets.

The couple must be oprning the champers.

  1. a big windfall in bonuses for her and also him in hk for their still new enough jobs ?

  2. HK official environment becoming breeding ground for sycophants to climb the ladder due to the continuing central govertmentisation process. Versus SG where there is gradual hollowing out of unbridled fawning and balls carrying, despite the 70% result — more & more emphasis on real world rubber-meets-the-road results.
