  • The end of cheap and good ?

    6 août 2008, par Mentom
    INFLATION figures in Singapore have hit record highs, with over 6 per cent reported for the first months, the highest for 25 years, and then holding at 7.5 per cent from April to June. This has surprised many Singaporeans, who wonder why it has happened and what to do about it.
    To some, it is a kind of opportunity. In May, I was in California with old friends who had emigrated and they told me how so many Singaporeans come to visit just to go shopping. Everything seems so cheap there, (...)  suite suite

    Time to revisit Australia - this time to Brisbane. What a relief to arrive in the cool australian "winter" - decent temperatures of around 20 degrees ! Some fellows already await me at the airport.
    First thing to do in the cold - to go for a long jog without suffocating and looking like a lobster just escaped from the boiling soup.
    At dusk return for a silent breakfast and a run in the Botanical Gardens - mangroves and jungle the middle of the city.

    Bye bye civilization !  suite suite
  • Tea time

    4 juin 2008, par Mentom
    Time for a break, time for some very exotic destination ! What about taking a 15 hours flight to take a cup of tea ? Yes sure, this is London. And if only it would be a break - no again it’s all around the planet, just... for work.
    Don’t they all look the same ? Heading for a very important meeting lah. I forgot, Europe and especially London is very chilly cold. I am looking a bit ridiculous with my collection of short-slieve shirts...
    But enough spoken about business, time for the weekend (...)  suite suite
