or you could go to Chiang Mai and then overland into north of Laos and work your way down south. Worth considering to avoid backtracking (seeing that it takes ca. 10 hrs bus just LP to VT).

does anyone know where I could find FSC (forest stewardship council) certified furniture in Singapore? I've tried their web page but they don't show retailers, and google also not successful.

Let's see what the weather says, though, after today's floods. So if anybody wants to join, drop me a line, I'll PM my mobile no., don...

rollerblading

Anybody like rollerblading? I love it but I'm short of people to go skating with. If anybody interested to meet up for a round of skating, let me know. Best for me is weekends, probably east coast park or park connector. I'm an average skater, just doing it for a bit of exercise and outdoors.

where to buy foldable mattress?

I'm looking for a mattress that folds up and that I can stow away when not needed. Need it for guests, but don't want to have a sofa bed sitting around, so need something smaller to roll or fold up and hide under my bed or in some dark corner. Any ideas which shops might have this? So far I've tried...

let's say Sunday 1 June. Pasir Ris Water Venture at 2.30 pm (web page says latest equipment rental 3 pm). weather permitting. I reckon Pasir Ris could be more fun with larger waves. Location: in the Pasir Ris Beach Park, address: 125 Elias Road, Singapore 519926 Not sure about what certifications th...

I'll try organise something: how about next weekend, 31 May or 1 June, ie.e. Saturday or Sunday, still flexible. I only know Kallang and didn't like it too much so would suggest Mc Ritchie or Pasir Ris. So, who's interested? Aaron, the 1 star I've got is really basic so might be too boring for you. ...

I've been working in factories with people doing shift work (not myself, though). From what I heard the hardest is changing between shifts. Means it would be easier in your case if you stick to one shift pattern, i.e. constantly working nights. Would you be entitled to any shift benefits? I.e. more ...

in my experience easyjet flies to proper airports whereas with ryan air you can end up in the middle of nowhere.

Also, some of the bigger carriers sometimes have good offers, e.g. Lufthansa is selling 99 euro tickets for European destination (from Germany).
