I have my own observations but I'll leave them at the clown walk. Especially since I just posted in the Backlash thread......

It's just my personal observation more than anything else and hell no there is nothing more disgusting than decaying teeth.
The lack of oral hygiene is the biggest turn off for me.
I've seen a few smiles that have made me gag

Big city skyline impresses the country boy - every time, what can I say.

When I came here first I had some time on my hands.
I used to go to Cafe Iguana/Brewerkz everyday when they opens around 1230 & have my fill of fine beer at SGD1.25/pint from 12 to 3pm.

I saved a fortune!!!!!!!!!
