Good Morning, Singapore

It must have been raining last night…
Damp and moist this morning…

Not Feeling Well

One of my ears is clogged. It doesn’t cause any pain but the unbalanced hearing ability made me dizzy. So I decided to see to the doctor, for the first time in Singapore. The clinic I visited was v luxurious (I believe its target patients are expats as it is called the international clinic). Great facilities. Detailed registration procedures. Dispensary filled w the latest medicine. Yet, they failed to identify the cause of my clogged ear. Frankly speaking, I was not surprised. This exactly coincides with my experiences after having been here for a year – you are in a city with everything… But somehow, you can never find what you want.

I left the clinic after paying a fee of SGD183 (USD147 ) in exchange of an unsolved health problem and a bag full of expensive medicine.

Japanese Grocery


When I was in Hong Kong, I used to use a salad dressing from Japan.  It was very yummy and it was not fattening.  Unfortunately I cannot find it here.  Heard that there was a Japanese grocery shop in this new shopping mall and so off we went to try our luck.  Lots of Japanese stuff but no trace of my salad dressing!
