Germany vs. Spain

Post by steff77 » Wed, 07 Jul 2010 4:00 pm

Hi, it seems that all of my friends are out of town or prefer to stay in bed tonight. Anyone up for watching the semi-final Germany - Spain tonight at Robertson Quay?

I will cheer for Germany though, but Spain-supporters are of course welcome as well. :)

Im on the same ship. But looking forward to meet some spanish supporters, if there are some around SG.

I have been watching last matches from home, but it´s difficult to fight against sleep when you are alone at home. With a crowd (and some beers) will be easier to follow whole match.

Anywhere where spanish people are meeting tonight?

My spanish friend watches at a place right nearby Prince of Wales in Dunlop st, Little India. It seems to be the "unofficial" spanish / catalan hangout in Singapore.

Probably Catalan, but at this point in time he's Spanish (as Barca wouldn't have enough players left to field their own team!)

July 8 (Bloombrg) -- Top US investment bank Goldman Sachs is said to be
bidding US$4m a yr's package for the oracle octopus Paul to head up its
Proprietary trading book. Goldman will convert part of its trading floor
into a fish tank for Paul and put boxes of different markets, stocks, indices, equities and bonds for Paul to chose from. Hopefully this will translate into a more profitable prop business for them. Paul will also work closely with Head of Global Strategy and recommend him asset allocation strategy. Also heard from a reliable source this morning that Merrill Lynch were bidding Paul to replace their entire research team. Will be interesting to see where Paul ends up.

And dangnabbit, he got it right.
