The trip to the Middle East didn't push through but I got sick and couldn't come out last Friday. I hope everybody had fun.

After not renewing our lease for the JTC flat last year and staying with some very obnoxious housemates who are jerks, we found a nice HDB to rent. It's just for a year. Now I'm worried whether we will get renewed with all these restrictions. Hubby is of different ethnicity/race and nationality than...

I know this doesn't directly answer your question but have you tried looking at setting up a vPost account so you can "get" a US mailing address where Amazon resellers can send the product to? Then vPost will send it to your address here in Singapore.

Several years ago, there was this ladies' bar in Chinatown (where I used to stay). The name was Cows and Coolies. I only went in because my gay friend was curious about the bar and felt he needed female company to go inside. I'm not sure if it's still there but the last time I passed by (about 2 yea...

We used to have a middle aged auntie in a white merc who would park outside of my semi-detached up on Watten Estates at 3 am in the morning and with a long extendable pole with a plastic basket/cutter contraption, would reach over my fence and steal my Honey Mangoes. Between her and the bats and th...

Actually I could really use some help or hearing about people's experience. I am trying to figure out if it is or isn't a problem. How it would effect my visa and if visa got denied would I also be denied a tourist visa? Skeezy set me off, because it's a character slam. As a US citizen, you can ent...

Oh one more thing! Don't just show up at Petronas Twin Towers and think you're going to be able to go to the top. You have to buy tickets, and they sell out days in advanced apparently!
