Update on 22 April at 4.35am: Double confirmed, Bonny Wong is still married to Bill Ng. They’ve been called up for questioning by the police http://www.todayonline.com/sports/bill-ng-questioned-police-after-raid-three-football-clubhouses-and-fas
(In case anyone doesn’t know, Game Changers is the name of the Bill Ng led team that is contesting the FAS elections. And he has been alleging irregularities in a donation made to FAS*.)
When I knew Bill Ng in the 1990s (it wasn’t a pleasant experience), I met his wife Bonnie Wong, a Hongkie lady. Good looking, sassy lady.
So I was laughing when I read that Tiong Bahru FC was paying rent to a company owned by Bonnie Wong
TODAY found that Tiong Bahru also paid around S$960,000 in total rent in 2016 to the unit’s landlord, Polygon Ventures, which is listed on the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (Acra) as a company dealing in general wholesale trade. That works out to be about $80,000 per month.
The listed owner of Polygon Ventures is Bonnie Wong Yuk Ying, who TODAY understands shares the same residential address as Ng.
With the clubhouse measuring 2,583sqf, it means that the rental amounts to S$31 per square foot.
In contrast, a check showed that other basement units in People’s Park Centre are charging between S$2.92 and S$11.23 per square feet in rent. The only unit charging S$31.50 per square feet in rent is located at street level, and measures only 200sqf.
While Ng is understood to be running the club, the chairman of TBFC’s general committee is listed as former FAS president Zainudin Nordin.
Btw, I owe him an apology because I got one thing wrong about him: I tot he wouldn’t organise a slate to contest the FAS election. Here I wrote:
Those of us who had dealings with Bill Ng in his stockbroking days can testify that he is a talk cock sing song artiste, No Action, Talk Only. He’s carried this over to footie mgt: witness his so-called bid for the storied Rangers FC, and the absence of his slate to run FAS at the AGM. He’s a used car salesman.
I predict that his slate will not materialise.
I’m still wondering why Bill Ng threw stones when he was was living in a bungalow made of glass even though I’m sure that if he’s still married to Bonnie Wong, all the legal niceties were followed in the agreement to pay rent to a biz owned by her.
My other posts on him
*FAS produces letters, cheques to show that Bill Ng knew he was donating S$500k to AFF
Bill the ex one-armed bandit that had kept paying and paying at the behest of some tua kee FAS officials replied that he was misled and “directed” to sign the letter that showed he was lying.
