Fencing

Postby carpediemxing216 » Sat, 08 Dec 2007 2:39 pm

Hi, anyone wants to learn fencing? I have seen an advertisement of fencing class on a taxi! But it passed by too quickly for me to catch the name of the school. Anyone knows where the school is?

e national museum opens from 10am to 8pm daily,while e lourve and history exhibition area is only open from 10am-6pm...$8 for e lourve and history gallery n $16 for the package which u can visit every gallery.
(think e package is more practical.)

zflor, i'll leave the organizing of Greek sculptures exhibition to you.

matty, i've tried dragonboating couple of times. Didn't really like it, though it was quite an experience. i'm sure if you look around the forum, there are some threads from dragonboating team. Too bad I can't find the phone numbers of ppl i dragonboat with.. :oops:

anyway, i'm interested in this: http://www.thepicturehouse.com.sg/12day ... index.html
particularly Little Red Flower. Currently tix is sold at $5, and it's a small theatre, and as of now, half of the seats are sold. If you're keen, let me know in the next 1-2 days and i'll book it.

If you haven't watched Paradise Now, you should. Excellent movie.

as for trattoria lafiandra, i have been there twice now and it's pretty damn close to its italian counterparts (at least as much as can be expected in singapore)...i am definitely interested in going back when i get back to town...

Really? I shall give it a try then.

Well, you have fun and have a good trip then.. I'll explore and see if any other place is as good. Garibaldi has good reviews, but i'm skeptical. And the word trattoria just simply yells good food. And i miss the Osteria in the small little lanes... :)

Ooooooooh did someone say Garibaldi!??? fish tank, you have excellent taste. Garibaldi's sister restaurants are "Menotti" and 2 others called "Riccotti". All worth a try, especially Riccotti :wink: :wink: :wink:
