It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! It’s a Bee??

OK, I know it’s not a bird or a plane, but it is HUGE! I found it already dead when I was walking around Mt Emily Park. Several locals came up to look at what I was carrying around in a leaf, and then quickly cowered away. They explained to me that this “bee” or […]

Quick follow up on this story about an SMRT train getting painted, graffiti artist Oliver Fricker has been convicted and given the minimum sentence which is 5 months in jail and three strokes of the cane, but is already appealing the verdict.

Singapore Salesman Style

One of my suitcases got ruined on the trip here and I’ve been on the look out for a replacement for the last few weeks. Unfortunately every time I find a luggage store and try to browse around I start getting followed by a sales person who just stands there hovering over me which makes [...]
