A
siah cheated at the Jump For Joy 2008 competition.


This rope skipping competiton was managed by Jolen and Asiah of Jump Rope For Heart of the Singapore Heart Foundation. The foremost rule of this competition is all skippers cannot be from a school Rope Skipping competitive team as can be seen on the competition poster.



The other 7 teams complied with this no skipper from a school Rope Skipping competitive team rule. Asiah blatantly ignored this rule and sent this competitive school team she was coaching to compete in this competition.



December 2010 update:
Both Jolen and Asiah left the Singapore Heart Foundation in 2009. At the 2010 Jump For Joy competition with about 6 schools participating Jolen and Asiah are running the competition again as volunteers this time. Two schools associated with Asiah won the competition.

April 2013 update:
Hansen, Lay Eng and Asiah have teamed up to organize an ARSF Asian Championships in Singapore without an open transparent selection
. Only the masters events are available and to MOE schools only. This locks out skippers from other associations, clubs and international schools. Each participants are asked to pay a heafty participation fee of US$400. Singapore Heart Foundation's offer to help organize the Asian was declined. RSS is not invited to participate.

July 2013 update:
Rpe Sport (Singapore) website has removed the list of 69 Singapore skippers they selected for the Asian Championships in Singapore on 31 July. Lee Lay Eng and Asiah are not selected but are named as competitors on the Asian brochure together with only 16 skippers from the list. No awards where won by Singaporeans.

Sept 2014 update
The Asian Rope Skipping Championship 2013 was the debacle of Rope Sport. Hanson with Asiah rebrands their business to differentiate themselves from Lay Eng who changes Rope Sport's logo. Neither party participated in the World Championship 2014 in Hong Kong organized by IRSF which Rope Sport is affiliated to by way of ARSF membership. Neither party is serving our athletes and the sport. The rest of the world knows this now.

December 2015 update
Rope Sport Singapore founded by Hansen in 2007, under the direction of Singapore Heart Foundation, has removed their facebook account. They don't seem to exist anymore. This raises the moral question, - where are the funds raised when they hosted the 7th Asian Championship in Singapore in 2013?



Hansen stole our Rope Skipping Singapore name.

Hansen of Vitage Fitness knowingly used our name, Rope Skipping Singapore, to name his rope skipping business in February 2008 as you can see in this SSC webpage. He eventually ceased the plagiarism in August 2008.



December 2010 update:
In August 2008 Rope Sport (Singapore) was born out of the need to have a different name from the incumbent and original Rope Skipping Singapore. Further incarnation in 2010 sees it formalized as a registered society in which Lee Lay Eng is vice-president.

Lee Lay Eng concealed the fact that her skipper was home quarantined on competition day.


Lee Lay Eng, the teacher-in-charge of her school rope skipping team announced that there was no time for the senior boys individual and pair to do their events during the South Zone Rope Skipping Championship 2009 in her school. Her school's senior boy (Kim Yih) was home quarantined with chicken-pox during this competition. There was no reception table to check the age and identities of skippers of the school teams. This helped conceal Kim Yih's absences from the other school teams and teachers. If he was called to perform for his events as scheduled that day he would have been disqualified. Lee Lay Eng was the emcee, time keeper and in-charge of the competition ensuring Kim Yih would not be called to skip.

All this school's coaches were involved in this conspiracy to keep Kim Yih's absence a secret. Their coaches are Alex of Vitage Fitness and X-Jump team of Singapore Heart Foundation. Behind the floor seated school team they stood in a line like the terracotta soldiers of China (in red Heart Foundation T-shirt) guarding the team's secret through the whole competition.



December 2010 update:
Kim Yih thus qualified to go to Hong Kong for the Asian Championships in July 2009 with his school team of 26 skippers selected by Singapore Heart Foundation. The MOE bird flu travel ban scuttled this trip. MOE lifted this ban a few days before the competition and another school, Rulang Primary, went to Hong Kong as planned. The principal of the Rulang Primary got several angry letters from parents and skippers from Kim Yih's school insisting that Rulang Primary skippers should not go to Hong Kong. The team went and won third place in the prestigeous Asian Cup event.

Lee Lay Eng transfered to another school in 2010. She again concealed the absence of someone
this time at Rope Sport Singapore's debut competition this year resulting in a skipper from her X-Jump team not being disqualified from the competition.

A ground swell of fabrication.


There was a complaint letter written against me in 2008 and another in 2009, both written to the Ministry of Education. In similiar vein there was the suggestion coming out from St Hilda's Primary School that I incited Rulang primary school rope skipping team to block their school team from entering the sports hall entrance at the primary school Nationals in April 2009.

At the Skip'a'Dance contest on 12 July 2009, Asiah of X-Jump broadcast that I incited the Rulang primary school's team of primary 2's to jeer at other teams. X-Jump also put malicious material on YouTube and other websites claiming that my team the Jumping Jewels cheated. At this competition teacher Lee Lay Eng demanded of the title sponsor representative, Mr Suresh Narayanan (MD of Nestle), that he shut down the competition for helping the Jumping Jewels to cheat. Parents and a competitor from her school (which X-Jump coaches) wrote letters to the organizer of Skip'a'Dance to complain about the Jumping Jewels who won the competition. A mother, of a competiting team of two brothers, was so coarse and hostile to the competition organizers that Suntec City mall's security had to be summoned. Asiah aka sia yaya was the rope skipping coach of the brothers.



All complaints were investigated and duly dismissed. The Jumping Jewels became champions of One Minute of Fame 2009

Now this is what a St Hilda's primary school student of Alex of Vitage Fitness wrote in an online forum run by Hansen of Vitage Fitness after the primary school Nationals in April 2009. Paya Lebar Methodist Girls School has a successful rope skipping team that I coach. Alex coaches St Hilda's, Loyang and Greenwood primary school rope skipping teams. What would make a primary school child have so much anger against a team she does not know and love teams she does not know? If it is megalomaniac manipulation then this puteriadriana is just the tip of an iceberg.




December 2010 update:
Skip'a'Dance was a quaint family orientated competition created by the good people of Singapore Press Holdings. Unfortunately abovementioned affront to civilized behaviour will no longer be tolerated by SPH and so there was no 2010 edition of Skip'a'Dance.


Puteriadriana is still schooling at St Hilda's in 2011 and the 3 schools that she loves are not featured in the top four divisions at the 2010 Nationals. Alex is not coaching anymore after the 2010 Nationals.

X-Jump threatens coaches and team mates


Serene Ng of CCAB, Ministry of Education organized a coach vendor briefing and forum at CCAB on 14th Jan 2010 to talk about their Nationals and primary school rope skipping. Consequentially I organized a coaches' meeting on 24th Jan to discuss how we as coaches can help the primary school Nationals. X-Jump, whose manager is school teacher Lee Lay Eng,  threatened all coaches to "stay clear and steer away" from this meeting.



December 2010 update:
There are no more meetings organized by CCAB and the secondary school championships at this years Primary School Nationals announced by Serene at the meeting was cancelled. Rope Skipping Singapore offered to help organize this secondary school event but I have not heard from Serene on the matter since the meeting.

Lee Lay Eng is on the technical (advisory) committee for the Primary School Nationals.
