You would never catch me in a condo pool. I actually prefer the beach with the trash, babes, sand fleas, babes, oil/tar balls & babes over the clean spotless pools with the middle aged, overweight, pasty pale matrons & beer bellied belligerent balding bull-headed guys. :cool:

For babes? or Tarballs! None of the beaches here are worth a damn, but I'll still take 'em over a condo pool. :lol:

Sentosa for Babes (comparatively speaking), East coast for Tarballs.

Doesn't matter where you go around this little red dot, the trash, tarballs & sandfleas are already there. But they don't chase me out with my bottles of beer while floating on the waves. :P

I was waiting for that. :cool: I'm always willing to be proven wrong! :devil:

But I noticed you didn't take any issue with the rest of the statement.... :wink:

My tuppen 'orth for what it's worth.

I swim regularly at the public pool in Bedok and occasionally in Jalan Besar. I've given up going in the evenings, it's too crowded to be able to swim properly. Jalan Besar ropes off 2 lanes for lap swimming in the evening but people wander all over them.

I go either morning or lunch time and generally find the pools pretty empty (8-10 people) and don't have a problem swimming. I follow the line at the bottom of the pool - or swimming "on top" as some-one put it. Swimming crawl and with no lane ropes there's no other way to swim in a straight line. I never have problems with stray swimmers although at those times most of the other folks are also reasonably serious swimmers who are doing laps. btw I'm generally the only non-local in the pool.

Condo pools I only ever splash about in, I wouldn't want to try and do any serious swimming in them.
Never regret anything that made you smile

Oh man, stop complaining all of you about pool behaviour!

You guys 'n gals have no idea how lucky you all are, being able to have the climate and the tools needed for a nice swim any day of the year.

Sheesh! :x

Sorry . . .

On last whine, though . . . half the pool was in the shade by the time we got there today . . . simply unacceptable and not good for my tan upkeep!


And, to make you feel a bit better, SGlide . . . taken in Mrs 'Cluse' car yesterday, that's the outside temperature . . . and the car was in the shade . . . wilt!

Brrrr....

44 degrees celsius, that is a comfy temerature, isn't it? Good reminder indeed, that it is not all sunshine in the tropics... :wink:

Last week we had a mere 25 degrees celsius over here, but now it's back to 11... :?

But still, a dip in the pool everyday? I wish!

I would give away this pool dip for springs, winters and falls.

44C ?? WOW!!..Are you sure the car's thermometer is in working order, Mr V? Temperatures in these parts tend to hover around 32C with the odd mean streak of 35/36C :???:

Hey Superglide, if you've not noticed, this is an expat forum so generally a place to bitch about local peculiarities. :P
