Certainly there must be some reasons why Indonesia is on that list:

All the other countries are much more troubled.

Because pilot training and testing suck. Because aircraft safety inspections suck. Because money is handed over under the table to people who are supposed to ensure that neither of those suck.

thats one of the things you miss when you go to other countries ( esp India) and you come back here and you see shorts and near skimpy clothing and you go aaaah i've missed this. :lol:
Not just India. Europe too, it's so freaking cold, everyone is covered up head to toe. But, then rarely you see one of those chicks in shorts inspite of the cold and it's so refreshing.

In the 7 yrs that I have been in Singapore, its wierd, that I only realized last week that there is a channel called cHK. Last week watched the movie "Once upon a time in Shanghai" I normally dont watch movies, but while swapping channels this caught my eye and watched it till the end, was quite an interesting movie. But not that great, some parts of it you could make out didnt look real, it clearly felt fake. The martial arts though was top class, left me spell bound. Now watching cHK again and another action movie. Are all Hong Kong movies martial arts or action?

When we were kids in India, we watched all these kung foo movies and use to think all Chinese do martial arts, lol.

V strange you found it in a food-court, dunkel wheat beer, plus quite cheap for that quality of brewer in SG. V good deal at that px, and quite obscure type of beer.... why do you think they stocked it?

They're quite more common than most people think in hawker centers, even in the heartlands. There's apparently a demand and people have a more varied taste for beer than previously believed.

Yep, I think the same^
I know only a few, but I believe there are many "beer stalls" in many very local hawker centers some of them serving pretty rare stuff like big bottle Chimays

This indicates too the need must be there.

I have a tripel at home. Small bottle only, though. :oops:

The one in Bkt Timach Shopping Center, the Fairprice Finest is pretty poor in terms of beer choices but pretty good in general (very close to CS). It regularilly has wine deals, especially if you are looking for cheap, drinkable kinds but you don't need to prove to the world you are a sommelier.

Drinkable is good enough.

I've been to a winery that has their tawny available in comically large containers, which of course for "cheap" wine, made it even cheaper. Thing is, it's really good wine. I only went for the 2L bottle though only because the 10L container would've been ridiculously heavy to lug around.
