It's interesting why he would even ask whether or not he can wear them here in Singapore considering he's posting from not all that far away in one of our neighbouring countries biggest city. Course they are a necessity there what with the flooding and sewage filled open canals & drains.

Baf, you might be right though about the sales rep thing as I'm pretty sure he's probably been to Singapore already as it's only 900km away.

Maybe he's a Scot or Kiwi with a sheep farm over there. I mean, don't forget, Hunter Boots are rubber wellies, the favourite of sheep herders (sic!) in both countries. I reckon with the fancied up pair he figures maybe he could chat ewe up! :mrgreen:

Yea I'm currently in Jakarta but I've lived my entire life in the US. Been to Singapore for short visits, of course since no planes from the US fly directly to Indonesia. As for sales rep, no I'm not one. But then again, nothing I say could convince you guys. :roll:

Actually, I was convinced when I first replied to your post. That's why it's still there. Normally us moderators just summarily delete what appears to be advertising without any ado whatsoever. I was sorely tempted as I've never seen anybody put up enough pictures like that unless they WERE selling something. Or hoping a big fat curly ewe was surfing the net! :mrgreen: :lol:

And you wore wellies in the US? Let's see, according to the USDA the state that produces the most sheep is Texas! Bet you got along real good with them good ole boys! running around in your wellies! :o

My experience of Singapore tells me there is more demand here than we relise, although not my scene, I never forget the day me and my commander swapped our ferret keys, for a place to sleep in Malaysia. These Countries out here are probably the first countries that self expression of sex and profanity were liberated before the powers of B took over.
It's in the blood of all countries, and more here because it was a way of life in th e past, and still is today, in a bigger way. I would think this person doesn't have a problem at all, walking in his rubber boots. Providing he stays within the laws. :) I've seen it all not done it all! Thank god, but i must say the feeling of rubber in this heat is maybe a cold experience. But i have seen some punks here that dress like it!

At 59 yrs I must admit some of the white witches music I like, since I am acquainted with the darker side of life
