Greetings from Singapore

    But – shhh! I’m not supposed to let people know I’m here (workshop politics πŸ˜‰ )

    Heh…but I AM here, and it seems I may be back out here too – my personality (?) coupled with my skillset makes me quite a useful chap it seems (and this isn’t me blowing my own trumpet – I’m actually blushing slightly as I type this…). Been a very successful trip all in all though – I was sent out here to resolve some issues with a web-based venture the company is involved in, done that in the first day really, the subsequent meeting to be honest, was just to ‘fill in’ the non-technical persons involved.

    As part of my job, I’ve been dealing with different people in Singapore for some years now, and the last 2 days I’ve been able to put faces to names and meet some characters…Patrick and his wife Grace last night were 2 such people, and I was very honoured to be invited to their house for a meal and drinks.

    As for contacts, well, I met the British Consulate’s under secretary who fancies himself as a bit of a pool player, so we’ve arranged to meet up tonight and have a few beers in town (can’t have too many though – I’m due at the airport for 7am for my flight home).

    Everyone (both friends and work colleagues) thinks I’m on a ‘jolly’ here – but it really is very work related and this week has been a great week workwise – orders are now flying in and it seems every time I check the work emails, there’s another one there for me πŸ™‚ (ok, now I AM blowing my own trumpet slightly… πŸ˜› ).

    And so, my latest adventure is almost over – tomorrow I go from this:

    To this:

    Incidentally, the A380 is one hell of a plane – it’s fucking HUGE!

    Well, I have today to myself, so I’m off into town to look around and do some shopping (yes, hold the front page –Β  I’M going shopping), got to meet Wang later just to go over our game plan – won’t take long though, without the others we can get as technical as we like – during the meetings everyone was looking at us as though we were speaking another language (well, we were – HTML, Asp.Net, Javascript, and such…).

    And so, think I’ll go for a dip in the pool before grabbing a cab into town…y’all don’t appreciate how hard I work πŸ™‚

    1. Singapore? Close to home!

    2. Damn. Damn damn damn. That sounds like a blast.

    3. I’d say hurry back, but why bother? Stay and get lost!

    4. wasn’t all that good, you didn’t get laid! HA!

    5. Hahaha leave iy to bu’er!

    6. Pffft…like I need to go halfway around the world to get laid.

      I did go check out the whorehouse though – and I’ve never seen a more dingy, seedy place in my life – and the pub I drink in is no Ritz…I could get laid there with far less health worries.

      Besides, I’m in a celibate phase (self imposed) until Spring πŸ™‚

      1. Why? I mean, I’ve done the self-imposed celibacy thing, too, but I usually have a reason for it.
