"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"They are ill discoverers that think there is no land, when they can see nothing but sea." - Sir Francis Bacon

MDA on the "Not Recommended" rating: "This means that the content of a film has gone beyond the guidelines of a particular rating, and as such, is not recommended under that rating."

There was a bottle of Pomelo Green Tea. The ingredients read: "Pomelo extract, Green Tea, Sugar & Water". I'd been wondering why Pomelo was the main ingredient, then realised they'd cheated by putting the ingredients in increasing order of concentration, rather than decreasing order as is the normal practice.

I think more guys in Singapore have long hair (past ear length) than in Japan.

An interesting question to ponder is why the Japs are so resilient to proselytisation attempts.

There's a 'Feng Shui World' magazine. Uhh.

Apparently it's a CAAS regulation that you can't fly your kite >30m in the air. Uhh.

"Causeway Bay Cafe" along Liang Seah Street sucks. I can't decide which is worse - the food or the service.

We probably don't have many squares or plazas in Singapore so people can't demonstrate.

McDonald House has a "Automated Mechanised Car Parking System". It sounds funky, but it says it's for valet parking only, which kinda defeats the point (it's no fun if it's a black box).

"What was the turning point in your life?" - I thought this was an ad for the Prisons, but it was for Temasek Poly.

Brother-in-law on logging into Flickr in the UAE: "We apologize the site you are attempting to visit has been blocked due to its content being inconsistent with the religious, cultural, political and moral values of the United Arab Emirates."

41.8% of Indians don't want to live next to people of the same religion (2001). Well done. (World Values Survey - they were asked: "On this list are various groups of people. Could you please sort out any that you would not like to have as neighbors?") Meanwhile 81.3% of Iraqis don't want to live next to a Frenchman (2004); the British were slightly more in disfavor, with 83.9%, but only 52.9% don't want to live next to Iranians!

I recently got a power adaptor you can plug USB devices into. I'm now looking for things to plug into it apart from my iPod.
