Although we have wonderful Christmas music, Christmas decoration and a lot of Christmas Sales to get your Christmas presents, there is no real Christmas atmosphere here because of the missing Christmas weather. Although you could buy tons and tons of 1$ icecream at every corner, there wont be enough to cool down the temperature here to a nice zero degrees.
But there is help, for everybody in Singapore who definitely doesn’t want to miss his usual Christmas atmosphere in Singapore, here are the places where you will be able to see your breath evaporating in nice white fog just in front of you.
Recommended by Anonymous Coward: "The artcile nicely lists 5 places in Singapore where everybody who longs for colder weather, snow and winter can find at least a bit of salvation. I will definately go to one of these places this weekend. Its Christmas!!!"

If you like tea, bring it with you. Weighs nothing in your backpack and is worth lots because in Singapore you will mostly only find green tea...(Bring) Condoms (those in the southeast asian region are mostly too small and notoriously unreliable).

Don't know which supermarket he went to that only sold green tea!"

Like all journalists and publishers, bloggers sometimes publish information that other people don't want published. You might, for example, publish something that someone considers defamatory, republish an AP news story that's under copyright, or write a lengthy piece detailing the alleged crimes of a candidate for public office.
The difference between you and the reporter at your local newspaper is that in many cases, you may not have the benefit of training or resources to help you determine whether what you're doing is legal. And on top of that, sometimes knowing the law doesn't help - in many cases it was written for traditional journalists, and the courts haven't yet decided how it applies to bloggers.

To prove another point - that not all ulu places have no food - I have decided to come up with the paddychicken guide to food in Serangoon Garden. This is one extremely inaccessible place which has pretty decent food. There is good food for any time of day - breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, supper and drinks.

Dr Money said:
AS Tan Kah Lin, 31, recently made her first investment. She bought a single premium investment linked policy (ILP). It is like unit trust but sold by an insurance company.
She and husband Bernard earn $6,000 per month and have $20,000 in cash and CPF money to invest. They have one child, Bernice, 1. I spoke with Kah Lin.
ILP's are tremendously popular, but how do you choose the right ones? Dr Money shows you how in this article and even lists down the ILP's with the best value for your money in a comparison table, something that insurers will never publicize.

My mom went for her cataract operation recently. It was quite a fast and painless operation. I think from what she said, the doctor sliced the eye and remove the cataract, and then they put in a len for her eye to help her see more clearly. Now her eyesight is very good on the right eye, and still need a spec on the left eye. The operation itself was about 30mins, and you need about an hour to rest.
Old pipples are quite suspectible to cataracts and the like. So just in case your parents (or uncles or aunties or godfarder or godmarder) have a cataract and have been procrastinating getting it looked at, then lucky for them because Mandrake has written all about how he got his mom's eyes fixed and now you can too...

We've recently posted about what kind of content we're inspired to publish, but here's some helpful hints about form:
1. Most of the editors (and quite a few of our readers) use Firefox, not Internet Explorer. Therefore, if your link can't be seen in Firefox (usually if you use one of those cutesy cursors and odd frames), it's very hard for us to tell if it's worth publishing.

Are you thinking of buying a flat? If so, watch out. Some banks offer good home loan deals, while others don't.
DrMoney aka Larry Haverkamp, is one of Singapore's best kept secrets for financial planning information. There is a lot of confusing and conflicting financial information out there but do not fear because DrMoney tells it like it is - in simple plain english. DrMoney has a weekly column in the New Paper and is highly recommended for:-
- Teenagers: Learn about personal finance so that you won't be clueless when your time comes
- Working adults: Admit it, we're all clueless. Do not trust your bank/insurance agent/financial planner. Read and DIY.
- Elderly adults: You need to read this more then anybody else. DrMoney is also elderly and he gives sound advice.

auntie germaine decides to give a tutorial of a different kind to youngsters her age.
If you are a rich enough person to own a car your car plate number is the most important one to buy. If you are a poor person then please take note of the car plate numbers on the cars when you are watching the lousy drama serials on mediacorp tv. If you are a rich person, own a car and happen to pass by car accidents, take down their numbers hor. If on that lucky day you find bird shit on your car, increase the stakes.

SillyCelly's guide to the Big-O (for girls):
This is very crucial. Find one which you find most satisfying. Most girls like being intimate, therefore missionary is popular, quite a few just hate doggees cause it makes them feel like a h00ker. Girls normally prefer face to face contacts. But to each, her own. But seriously, don't you wanna look at the face of your loved one when you reach 0-heaven? Or will you be thinking of Nakata? HAhahaha.. Well.. it works too la.. But don't tell him!

The Blogger's Method:
Profess your love for him on your blog.
Write about how romantic/macho/hamsem he is.
BUT, say you know that he is out-of-bounds cause he's attached, but you can't help but fall for him.
Get your blogders/girlfriends to whore your Blog and make sure he reads it.
Again, let him think you are suffering in silence.
Men's instinct will naturally want to protect you.
This is the companion post to suspiciousbastard's original post for "the desperate (male) single who still wants Chiobus" that was featured previously on Tomorrow. Nice to see that women have it just as bad as men. Life is fair after all.
