Really Stupid Instructions for Singapore

Postby Strong Eagle » Sat, 13 Aug 2005 1:37 pm

Just bought a tube of glue for a repair project. The instructions on the glue say to keep the remainder in a "cool, dry place".

I am having a hard time envisioning such a place in Singapore. Perhaps there is part of the island that I don't know about?

I always buy the smallest container possible because of that very problem. Also haven't used aircon for 20+ years.

I'd love to have your electric bills. We try to go without the a/c, but I am literally soaked with perspiration. I also have difficulty with my asthma without the a/c on. I also have learned to purchase small tubes or containers of glue, liquid nails, etc. In the temperatures here, it just won't last! :cry:

Years ago, when I took my then 2 year old daughter to the Doctor for a rash that just wouldn't clear up, he looked at me with a straight face and told me to:

keep her cool
keep her off the floor
avoid chlorine
avoid air conditioning
bathe her as little as possible

Looking back I think that's when my love-hate relationship with Singapore was born. :lol:

What kind of doctor was that? Did he think you were Steven Spielberg and your daughter was E.T. or what?

No. Just the condescending, overly simplistic, dissmissive type you meet a lot of when you have 3 busy kids and an acident prone husband. :lol:

a fridge is a cool dry place too, so you can try that... just make sure no one in the family thinks it's some kind of sauce for food!
