I have been back and forth from Singapore to India more time than I want to think. I have never needed US$ for anything with the exception to Duty Free Cigerettes at the Mumbai airport. If you change from INR to Sing be carefull where you do it. For example last time I was in India I exchanged Sing ...

I must admit that I do watch the Daytona 500 when possible, and Nascar at Glen Helen and Sears Point is freakin cool. I would love to see F1 at Laguna Seca though. The only thing that sucks about being an Aerican F1 fan here is that the US and Canada rounds are on TV at like 1a.m. I believe that US ...

Superglide is right. This issue has been bounced around more than a "Big Fatty" at a Greatful Dead concert. This touches on the topic of racism which has been mentioned in several meetings over the past few weeks. The easiest course of action for me is to give in and say what I hear the most. This i...

My family and I choose to live and interact with the local HDB population. We eat at the coffee shop or at home. At first it was not nice as we got alot of glares. Kinda like we were not wanted. Then after time we got smiles instead of glares. We came to understand that the glare were simply looks t...

Woudl he be Afrop...

I have read several articles indicating that long term (50 plus years) exposure to baby oil(Like Johson and Johnson) leads to leather skin.

I would think that a good extra virgin olive oil would be a good cure all.

Beware thought, not all extra virgin olive oil is extra virgin.

A dog crapping on you bed is a dog trying to tell you something.

Do not forget they do not speak english, chinese, malay, or Tamil.

Your dog is trying to tell you something.

Most likely- "I have to sheet" or "Bug off, you are an as# hole".

I will assume that you have primary physical custody. I would think that if you decree does not specify how far you can move you shold be ok. However, I will bet your decree has visitation schedules. Everyother weekend and alternate holidays. These specifics that you both probably agreed to with hav...
