  • Zero Latency again

    For a team building treat, we went to the Zero Latency VR venue near our old office. We’d been there once before to shoot zombies and walk through space, and I knew that zombie shooting was much less stressful because you didn’t get motion sickness and it was quite relaxing to shoot hordes of slow…

  • Drinking class

    I got up early this morning and put myself through 25 minutes of core exercises before everyone else woke up. I sweated so much that even if my arms hadn’t been limp noodles by the halfway point, I still wouldn’t have been able to complete the sets properly. Still, something is better than nothing, and…

  • A good night

    To draw a close to this week, and to celebrate not having to take any high strength painkillers for two whole days, we went out to dinner with friends at FOC, a tapas bar near 28 Hong Kong Street, the prosaically named but very good cocktail bar at, well, 28 Hong Kong Street. I allowed…

  • Cheese and wine

    This evening I had a training session at the climbing wall and when I was done, I met my wife at a cheese and wine event in the same building. Well, it was ostensibly a cheese and wine event; I was drinking gin and ginger beer (and alcoholic ginger beer) and eating pizza. I suppose…

  • Singaporean Mexican Birthday Party

    Today was my wife’s birthday, so after work I took her to El Mero Mero (the boss of bosses), a Mexican restaurant in the Chjimes complex. We got there half an hour early so I drank a Tecate and she got on the mezcal before we went into the garden for tacos.

  • Fourth and second

    We woke today stressed and exhausted, because La Serpiente had crawled into our bed at stupid o’clock and been thrashing and pushing us around ever since, and because we had to get ready for the birthday party today. We’d done things last night like stick pieces of fruit on skewers and make up party bags…

  • Not Quite Drinking In LA

    Tomorrow I’m visiting a friend for dinner, and since I failed to take anything with me the last time I went to see him, this time I’ve overcompensated by fetching two bottles of wine and a triplet of different gins from BevMo, some sort of beverage supermarket. This was as not much fun as it…

  • Not too much fun at the waterpark

    This afternoon we went to the Gardens By The Bay to meet friends at the children’s play area. Before going there, we popped over to the Star Wars event, where there were some demented cosplayers dressed in heavy black uniforms from top to toe, just the thing for tropical weather. La Serpiente decided she was…

  • Great World City and a calm afternoon

    This morning we went to Great World City, another mall in Singapore that’s not very different to the rest. There’s a Toys R Us for the kids to buy branded doodads in, there’s a Cotton On to buy their clothes in, there’s a Marks & Spencer and a Typo to buy kitsch nick-nacks. We went…

  • Three pint special

    I forsook the company Christmas party in favour of a quiet night at home, figuring that with jet lag and my cold, somebody else would enjoy the party more than me, and I could get a good night’s rest instead. Which would have made sense if I then didn’t go out to the end-of-year Singapore…
