I was with her for awhile, but re-reading now I want to poke myself in the eye. Is it too much like texting--I admit I use correct spelling when texting too. I feel like a dinosaur. :(

Don't worry; I use correct spelling too (unless I misspell to be ironic) and I know I'm not alone in my age bracket.

I suspect they're going to fast tire of not getting a better rise out of it. Ditto the PRC propaganda machine from Hougang.

The last time I checked (and I don't think it changed that much in two months), most of Asia was safer than the USA, and Singapore was among the safest of all places.
Of course, if you are Caucasian, I might stare like some of the others. I am European and think people from those tiny, troubled countries in the Caucasus look strange.
