Did you ever notice that you are usually unable to have an intellectual discussion without trying to get personal? Wow...you really are one insecure little individual arn't you? A "sly" little cut-down here, and a dash of sarcasm there (the lowest form of humor i've heard) -- propping yourself up ("...

I found housing to be fairly expensive if you are buying, and you probably don't want to purchase a car, as they are expensive as well. They have great public transportation, and taxies are cheap, although hard to get at times. Don't know what your income is like, or what "comfortable" means for you...

Vancluse: I argument is spurious. You hijacked a couple of snippets but I don't think you gave the work a fair analysis. You called it "pseudo-intellectual" but it was clearly science, you criticized the author for not being asian enough for your tastes, when a good portion of the research was done ...

Yes, you do want to be out and about, but if you are going to be meeting strangers out and about, you will need to be prepared to be friendly. This sounds a lot easier than it is. I seem to have a habit of randomly talking to people when I am out (guys and girls) and often times people are so freake...

Vancluse, Maybe you should read the book before you attack it. It is clear that you don't really know what you're talking about. Actually this research program began as a collaboration with a *chinese* post-doc who was in his lab and *much*, if not most of the research discussed in the book,was carr...

Differences between Asians and Westerners

I think I brought this up before, but I actually had a chance to pick up this book and thought I would recomend it to everyone here. Prior to this I had only seen Richard nisbet give a lecture on it. " The Geography of Thought : How Asians and Westerners Think Differently...and Why " - Richard Nisbe...

Just a thought: (1) Western guys might just be more agressive when it comes to meeting strangers which may be why more assian guys arn't dating western girls here. I know a lot of asian guys who date caucasian girls in America. (2) As far as the asian girl/caucasian guy thing, a lot of this may have...

Where to go tonight?

Well I finally made it to Singapore! So far I absoultly love it. I didn't realize Singapore was so green -- it's like one big forest! Anyways, I am staying in Dhoby Ghaut now and was thinking about going somewhere for a drink tonight. Anyone recomend a place? Apparently, drinking alone is the first ...

Well I will have my PhD soon and I think I would find it attractive if a girl had a PhD or graduate degree as well. Since I will probably end up being an academic, there could be a good chance that whoever I meet, will make more money than I will (although we still do pretty good as academics) I can...

Fortunetly I have a mini computer and so it fits nicely as carry on. In fact I have a small carrying case for travel as well. I am assuming there is no "shipping charges" for brining by mini computer as carry on?
