Hope to see Saint at the next one RNT you are always welcome to see how the other half live, I'm sure SMS and myself and a few others would show you what it's like to go slumming and still have an enjoyable evening, purely educational.
Suzi Quatro comes to mind for me SMS I can understand you missing a spread like you have there!
And for me the real hunting would be an experience, though i am happy with stalking the kill rather than the kill, unless i'm hungry.
My wife asked me what a spread like that cost and i said it's priceless for what it offers, but you must be one with nature to understand that, unfortunately city life is in the blood of many people. So I know how SMS feels.
Btw SMS I went from Saturday to tuesday without a beer and ended up in the emergency room at 1.a.m released at 4.30 a.m after discharging myself, 3 attacks in one day and blood pressure of 198/100 cannot be ignored, but I'm damned, if i was going to stay, when it wasn't an heart attack. I put it down to 3 nights of no sleep, because my body is still on European time, so I'm back on the 2 or 3 barons
I was down at NTUC 24 hr in Serangoon, surprised it was so lively, I lived there back in 1970, and after tonight I thought it was still a very good community village to live, it has everything. Though i have not been able to find my old address, which was called Serangoon Gardens, so I am still looking for old maps from the 70's. I found the place we did local shopping.

How incredibly presumptuous ksl! (I will leave out demeaning, because I don't think it was intended that way) . What facts are you in possession of that makes you think:
I am somehow in the other 'other' half at all?
Or that I don't know how the other half lives?
Or I've never been slumming (a ghastly term)?
Or that you and you're band of merry men are experts at this 'slumming' and you could provide me with an evening that is purely educational?
Sheesh ksl, Suzy Quatro? That really hurts...
I can't speak for SMS, but I'll bet it's not so much the 'spread' he misses~ it's the pace, the people, the weather, the landscape, the lifestyle, a shared ethos of a culture with which you feel a strong affinity.
