As to a question whether I could bring a dish for the party: Yes, I will cook and bring food along. And of course some drinks as well.

Why don’t you bring some of your national specialty like marinated raw herring in salad leaves?

Hey K,

I have been searching for this special tequila here in Spore but can’t find it anywhere. So, I guess I have to go and dig up some worms in the park and make my own special Singapore style tequila. =D>

Special Singapore style tequila recipe:

1) Put one or several of the dug up worms into a small glass.

2) Make sure the worm(s) doesn’t escape the glass.

3) Quickly pour 40% vol. spirit into the glass.

4) Keep the palm of your hand on the top of the glass so that the squirming worm(s) won’t pop out.

5) After a minute or so the worm(s) is “fast asleep”

you keep amazing me.... :shock:

meditation in Cambodia temples? always thought that was a joke when reading about it in magazines.

At the next venue we will meet an even more enlightened mangocar I guess?

Btw, what about the required dresscode? Typically Singaporean we have been discussing food for the last few days, but as a matter of fact I am more interested in the bikini style textiles being worn (or rather NOT being worn... :mrgreen: ).

I am currently checking my wardrobe for the appropriate bikini. Hope all of you will spend some energy in finding one too... :D

I was thinking of bringing a few cans of laundry detergent for in the pool over there, always wanted to have a decent foam party and this just seems to be THE venue to create one... 8)

Seraphim, am I allowed?
