KNN! Singapore's very own local drinking game! Proudly created and manufactured in Singapore for Singaporeans, KNN is your ideal ice-breaker! It is a wonderfully compact, fast-paced, no-holds barred game that is amazingly easy to play and guaranteed to be engaging for all!
Recommended by indirestraits: "KNN is the brainchild of 4 student entrepreneurs and is as far as we know the only local drinking game on the market. It is currently in pre-launch stages and we hope to harness the power of the blogsphere and internet to create interest in our game before we launch it officially with conventional media coverage. Please support us! (Besides, the game is honestly very fun!!!)"

MILO lovers would have you know that there are TWO different types of powder available in the market out there, at least true in this part of the world, Asia. Depending on your luck & how the business managers do it, you can get MILO powder in Singapore coming from either Malaysia and/or Australia.
Unless I'm very much wrong, the one coming from our neighbouring Malaysia, is sweeter; to accomodate our Asian tastebuds for sweet stuff. While the one coming from Down Under Australia, it is creamier (probably from all the milk supply from the moo-moo cows).

There's this vendor that's always parked on the side of the streets. He's got blocks of wood, all laid out on the side. Apparently he sells Chilk (칡) wood tea??!!
Here's the catch ~ The guy only only sells this in the morning. Talk about morning wood!

Some friends that we've introduced to Charlie's have been like, "So you drive all the way out here --- for expensive beers --- and mediocre Western food? What's the point?" People, that is the point. Charlie's has no pretensions about it. They sell beer, loads and loads of varieties of it, and they sell mediocre-to-average Western food. They're not trying to wow you with fancy tablecloths or happy hour prices or specialty dishes (unless the range of beers counts as a specialty).

He is believed to have been drunk at that time.
