First weekend in Singapore

Saturday morning: I have to do a little homework, but then I'm going to Chinatown via rapid transit today. I was planning on going to Malaysia to some of the hypermarkets, but I've heard too much from the locals about knife-point muggings, having AIDS-infected needles held against your throat and general shadiness. Do I really need a $2 DVD that much? Probably not.

Last night I just ate at the hotel, which had a nice buffet with local specialities (Chinese, Indian, Malay, etc). Extremely delicious, but Sing$60 after taxes (they called it "$30 triple plus" - three taxes).

Oh, the other day when we ate Indian food for lunch I was with three of the guys from this office - Chinese, two Indian. I ate hotter stuff (I ate the peppers) than what he could do so he bestowed upon me the title of Guru.

No difference there - everything seems the same temp!

Charlie said this site would be entertaining, and unlike with his unctuous endorsement of Million Dollar Baby, he was correct.

You still look like a grub - and a happy grub at that. And what manner of deceit did you pull off to be sent over there to "work" for pay? Unbeliveable. Makes me think it must be a government job.

Hope all is well for you and yours.

Take care.
