Happy 57th Birthday Singapore

9 Aug 2022 – Kelulut Honey

Fri: was too out of steam to help@CC today. Tkx to Wendy for introducing KelulutHoney bees that are stingless but will bite and their honey is 100% pure nutrient-laden is considered SuperFood that it is immune-boosting, highly anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant-rich. Added some to GingerT or LemonGrassT or PandanT and these teas now taste good&refreshing without any bite or sting in them! Jan tells me that Bees have helped Amanda with her Lyme disease using their stings, BeeTherapy – much of the natural remedy are still not known or proven, but as long as it helps is what counts.


Sat: Arc’teryx is a Canadian company based in N Vancouver and they certainly know the definition of comfort&quality. Have a few of their clothing&products – this will be my 2nd Arc’teryx dress and what a perfect outfit to have when packing light, even when backpacking (for real, I had it in my backpack during my hikes).

Calvin, Sam and Yoshie busy with their work.

Sun: a well-needed day to chill&rest and glad to be able to chat with 2nd-born in Norway. Its been a long time since we had the luxury&peace to have a long uninterrupted chat, Bjørn&Olai away in the cabin with B’s family.

Mon: why pay for 5*accommodations when you can be under the whole milky way with1,000million*FOC far away from the maddening crowds! Drop by to check our extensive camping gears including GSI, Marmot, Nanga, Nemo, SOTO, etc, including our CC-store-brand.

Nature has been for me, for as long as I remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure, and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion – Anderson
Jimmy & Wendy dropped by to say hi and the bar-area is now more organized for me to bartend! Today’s drink was WhiskySour with KelulutHoney&Lemon, an excellent drink for my cough which is getting much better. Tkx to Calvin&Sam for dinner@TheHainanStoryChapterOne (HotelBoss)
Tue: a public holiday but we are open@CC. Those attending NPD enjoy and be safe. This year could also be the last time that the NDP is held at the floating platform.
Tkx for yummy breakfast at this newly discovered joint@KatongVbasement(formally ParamountHotel) with no GST or service charge added to the menu prices with decent food&good coffee. For those who are driving, it is easy to park just outside the open-air carpark by MarineParadeRd
Appreciations to Calvin for scrumptious NationalDayDinner of mushrooms, avocado&celery-salad with beef&mutton consumed with good appetite by CC-staff&friends.

Wishing all those who are marking today a HappySingaporeNationalDay and celebrating the independence of our nation with the highest of the spirits!

As I soaked in the joy and celebratory spirit of National Day, my eyes and mind wandered to the Marina Bay city scape. Before 1965, Asia Insurance Building, now renamed Ascott Raffles Place, was the tallest building then. Singapore indeed had climbed mountains. We can stand tall. Over now to the present and future generations to keep on building Singapore, not just physically and economically but also its ‘heartware’. — gct/Goh Chok Tong SPMJ is a Singaporean retired politician who served as the second prime minister of Singapore between 1990 and 2004
