Singapore Fountain Pen said:
Morning. A man wearing a necktie and having one of those ubiquitous white earphones plugged into his ears boards the MRT. It's definitely him. What possible excuse could he have for not yet having discovered the substance effective at controlling body odor, a commodity commonly known as a deodorant?
While in theory there may be cultures that do not find bodily odors offensive, I find it difficult to believe that such a culture exists nowadays, and I know for a fact that the Singaporean culture was never one of them.
I can discern the smell of food on clothes left to dry in the kitchen that have absorbed the aroma of cooking. I can accept that. A person literally sweats to make a living? My heart is bigger than my nose to accept that. The same goes for someone who is sick. But not knowing that deodorants where invented for a reason (just like sunscreens) when you have an iPod? I'm sorry, but that's just too much for me to take.

i have reviewed many restaurants in the past year, and it took me one full month into 2007 before it finally hit me that i should have a “best of” list! rather than letting the good restaurants go forgotten, i have awarded little doughnut trophies to the best ones around, complete with various different awards!
when i started this, my intention was to have just a few basic categories such as “best food”, “best service”, “best ambience”, et cetera. but soon i got carried away and came up with more categories such as “best hawker stall” and “best hidden gem”! they even have nominees a la oscars style!
all restaurant descriptions would be brief since i have already written full reviews previously. the links to these past reviews have been included so you can read them as you go down the list!
