Yeah, think there is a brown rice place at Tanglin Mall...the Market Place there is pretty good for expat foodstuff. Its about the only place to get low fat mayo and diet 7-up.

One or the other should have lo salt PB.

This seems to be the most recent motorbike thread, so I will post here. I've read all the posts on converting a foreign license, and just wondered who has managed a full Class 2 conversion in recent months? For myself, I've been here 14 months, a little beyond the 12 month conversion period...but my...

- For certain premises which have 2 or more taxi stands, you might end up in the wrong taxi stand, e.g. Esplanade. I booked a cab once using the postal code, and the cab driver was waiting for me at another taxi stand on the other side of Esplanade. But yes, its a saver during rainy days because yo...
