We can't take a dog, it's against our lease here.
And the dog would probably be worse off, since it would be in a cage somewhere on your premises.

p.s. Do note that we're getting near the witching-hour of the shortest day of the year next week. The weather is crap, overcast all day and cold and it is dark by 3.30. Anyone in N Europe with a susceptibility to getting seasonally cranky, likely will be now. Just to remind you, monkey, you're moan...

Interesting, no? Both of you have lived in Singapore for quite some time. Both of you are married to local girls (I 'm assuming, SG, that you are still married) and neither of you are currently living in Singapore but are back in Europe. But neither have any common ground and both have completely d...

I'm no longer sure. Son's currently in the Singapore Navy. Daughter's on a Drilling Rig off the Ivory Coast of Africa. Me? I just like being a thorn in your side! :mrgreen: Well, you're not a thorn in my side, sms. :wink: Bet you're dreaming of that crayfish on the hook of your fishing rod, at the ...

[quote="JR8"] I don't equate giving people doggy-bags as being a 'good host', as I have explained I find it rather strange, and hence posed the OP. Neither do I (or Lee Kuan Yew) associate Singaporeans with graciousness. [/quote="JR8"] I'd call it graciousness, if people like to share their food wit...

Thank you for your generalisation that Singaporeans are penny-pinching people. In no other country on earth would you see pedestrian and traffic chaos just to get a 10c coupon off a curry-puff. In no other country would every piece of fruit and vegetable have been handled 500 times in search of the...

No animals should be fed at a table, except children of humans. All other animals belong outside the house, in a cage of some sort or certainly well away from the human eating areas. I saw a cat in the fruit section of Shop n Save the other day, I Shued it out the door, they don't belong there... S...

You should if you have a chance. Absolutely worth every penny and second!

Although with a large audience of around 4000 people, it felt like a close encounter, personal and with enthusiasm.

Darn, I used to go to some tailors in Singers as well, when still living there, thinking I'd get a good deal on a good quality shirt, pants or suit. Well, nowadays I go to outlet stores in Europe and find excellent quality stuff for good prices and the stuff lasts me a bit longer, as instead of Ah B...

Sorry, should have said 'hello' first... :wink: Ok, makes sense. There are so many dog training methods, but I guess a lot of them boil down to the fact, that building up a bond or relationship has to do with love, respect and discipline (be consistent and consequent). We visited a Cesar Millan dog ...

I'm not really a Cesar fan outright, I think I'm more aligned with the monks of New Skete. My attitude with dogs is a combination of the two with a heavy dose of common sense thrown in. I don't treat them like children, I treat them like dogs ~ but I treat my dogs very, very well. I tried digging f...

I've know of bantang, which is a type of cattle, we hunt in the Northern Territory.

This is a Bangtang, could you post a picture of a poon tang?
