Congratulations

Congratulations MGMT (CD)

For Brooklyn duo MGMT, Oracular Spectacular was a groundbreaking debut that launched the band into the limelight. It led to their working with The Flaming Lips.

This year, they were nominated for two Grammys, but both came up empty.

A little less spectacular

For Brooklyn duo MGMT, Oracular Spectacular was a groundbreaking debut that launched the band into the limelight. It resulted in them working with The Flaming Lips.

This year they were nominated for two Grammys, but both came up empty.

Nevertheless, MGMT were on the map and their talent had been noticed.

MGMT Congratulations (Columbia Records)

The multi-movement epic has a spotty history in pop. Pink Floyd did it well. MGMT have tried one and only partially succeeded.

Hong Kong seen through your lens

The theme of the Easter photo competition was 'Hong Kong in your eyes'. Natalie Ong's shot of a Chinese dolphin swimming among fishing and commercial boats won our hearts. The picture combines Hong Kong's fishing industry and tourism with its endangered environment.

Local artists hit high note at overseas events

Another young local artist has distinguished herself in a major international music competition. Academy for Performing Arts' piano student Zhao Ning, 24, (pictured) did us proud by taking first prize at the 6th J.N. Hummel International Piano Competition in Slovenia last month.

Letters

Birthday check

Congratulations on the Centenary Special of the South China Morning Post (November 6).

However, your slip was showing in the frontpage headline. The Chinese (or rather Cantonese) word for 'year' is nin, not lin. You were probably misled by wedding banquet menus which call lotus seed in red bean soup bak lin ho hop (100 years good match).

Development offers life in another world

Have you been doing a double-take when passing the huge billboards advertising PCCW Infrastructure's Residence Bel-Air?

You just cannot miss that big, pink mansion.

The one that looks absolutely nothing like the sprawling blocks of flats the company has just erected over in Pokfulam.

Looking to the future

Congratulations to Jasper Becker for his interview with Qian Ning (The Review, February 1). I found it very interesting.

Twice looks nice for Ivan the champion

PUNTERS' pal Ivan Allan is poised to strike a double blow at tonight's Happy Valley meeting. The champion trainer, so easy to predict last season when he launched an all-out assault on the title, has made a quiet start to this campaign. Surely this is just the lull before the storm, the quiet period before the Singapore Lion roars.

Plunge horse primed for Valley plunder

CONGRATULATIONS can lead the celebrations in the sixth event on tonight's Happy Valley turf fixture.
