Singapore Talking?

Singapore Talking aired last night (Sunday) on Channel 5 at 10:30pm - and while it wasn't a debate show, it was interesting to see Ashraf (former DA(S) exco and judge from The Arena) host a lively conversation The Sembawang GRC MP (Dr Lim Wee Kiak) and the CEO of Propnex (Mohd Ismail) and a young lady was property-hunting before her wedding.

Any thoughts, comments, or suggestions for the show?
