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.2 May 2010 - 12:00am
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.6 Apr 2010 - 12:00am

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.12 Oct 1994 - 12:00am
CONGRATULATIONS can lead the celebrations in the sixth event on tonight's Happy Valley turf fixture.12 Oct 1994 - 12:00am
LAM Hung-fie had a vintage year last season and he must already be looking forward to a future winner, given the way his debutant, Winning Sammy, shaped yesterday.
The son of Straight Strike had been very green in his work and missed the start in his trials.12 Sep 1994 - 12:00am
