Here's a starting point:

I would advise cosmetic surgery and bleaching your skin until you look Russian enough to avoid random beatings, then bringing along a spare liver because you'll have to replace after a couple of weeks of Russian-style drinking. :shock: Acclimatize yourself with a visit to Shashlik (Far East Shopping Centre, Orchard Rd), it's the only place in Sing I know with food that is worse than the real thing.

Russia? You should send Vodkashots a PM, he is as Russian as the day is long and loves his country.

...glasnost is not a souvenior and perestroika is not a brazilian footballer plying his trade in Moscow ( which incidentally is no beef ).
