Good News

1 Oct 2017 – Bye-bye Sep 2017

Fri: TGIF and good news! Have used this carrier many times within Norway, EU and the US,

and have been looking forward for their flights to SIN. For a budget airlines, one does not expect too much, as long as flights are safe&on-time and that it is clean. Now, it will be easier and more affordable to visit May&family+my Norwegian friends. 2pix below downloaded.

An interesting talk, Why Arctic Climate Change Matters To SIN by Dr Jan-Gunnar Winther.

@NLB (The Pod, Level 16) with a good view of the city. Met up with UIT rector, Anne Husebekk who of course knows the whole Hald family+Claire&her dad in Tromsø!

Sat: Happy Birthdays to sis-in-law Mabel, niece Daisy and grandniece Valerie (in black) – 3generations sharing the day and the last of Sep bdays! Pix downloaded and cropped from their FBposts.

If the below news is for real, SIN will not have much competition to keep its ranking for being one of the busiest ports in the world! Map downloaded from below link.



Sun: tkx Linn for these pix, bringing back fond memories from the AT thru’hike. Strangely enough was just thanking MissWiggy’s (AT fellow-hiker), family for Trail Magic@Carvers Gap 31May 2005! And now it is The Fabulous5 who are on the AT!

HokkienMee, another of PAs craving before she heads back to Vancouver. SweeGuan@Lorong29, one of the best (personal taste) and prices, S$6-8! have gone way up compared to the last time I was there, many moons ago!! The cook was not too happy with me taking pix today. Usual hawkers price for a plate is about S$3+ but probably less prawns&squids.

HokkienMee has its origins in the cuisine of China’s Fujian (Hokkien) province. Consists of egg noodles and rice noodles stir-fried with eggs, prawns+squid; served and garnished with vegetables, small pieces of lard, sambal sauce+lime.

Am not so sure if I agree with Bourdain where other matters are concerned, but where SIN food is concerned, I am with him for some of the foods. 2above pix downloaded.

Only here does one find the singular, exquisite mix of Chinese, Indian, and Malay dubbed ‘indigenous fusion’ by local chefs – Bourdain
