Rirarwin nothing is set in stone mate I'm flexible but my thailand visa runs out about the 18 I think so with the 36 hours down that would probably be about the time I'll be there too. Planning on malaysia too although I have heard the beer is pretty dear like so not sure how long I'll stay. I'll pm you my email like so let me know what you're doing is always good to meet up with people for a change have a fuk shopping outing ha ha. I'm in the North of thailand atm in chiang mai but haven't really met many people up here at all but haven't been drinking at my guesthouse as they only have an outside bar and the flies kept coming after my beer so I don't drink there I guess thats why I haven't really met many

Tried on a really nice checked lumberjack shirt with grey hood pure number nine copy today buit the arms were too short. I need new stuff drastic but can't get any shoes in my size nor clothes to that for that matter. Think am going to deliver them to home and get them dhl'd over:

If anyone could help wld be much appreciated looking for all white cons all stars in low in a 12. Thanks in advance have tried schuh, office and converse for starters don't really have time to search though ta

Club 21, Surrender and http://www.knowitnothing.com/ are the main ones. F.I.L. has now closed.

Don't bother with Haji Lane, it's nowhere near as good as it used to be.

Go there for the food man, it's all about the food. Fashion won't be any cheaper compared to Europe anyway. The only thing that is cheaper is electronics, in particular cameras.

Marina Sands Bay and in particular the Gardens by the Bay is a great area to walk around, from dusk to nightfall.

Oh and the Night Safari is still on point (went again couple of years ago) if you get a chance Cool

There is a new river safari too. You should visit gardens by the bay, it's beautiful.

As for shopping, maybe you can shoot me some questions and i will try my best to answer. electronic and gadgets etc you can go to sim lim square in bugis. You can try picking up an iphone too Eye-wink

Clothing is more expensive in general than in Europe. Tech is about 30% cheaper. It's very (!) Western for an Asian country. English and Mandarin are the main languages, although (I believe) Malaysian is the official language. Food is great and cheap. The food courts are awesome. Don't be afraid to try stuff like pig intestines.

They have four official languages, but the main one is English.

If you go there at the right time of the year you'd vs able to buy a lot of dope brands on 40-60% off. End of the year sale close to Xmas will be one of those times. Lots of high end store. Overall a very nice place to spend a weekend.

Okay, why the fuck would I go to Singapore 8 years ago? I don't ever remember saying I wanted to go to Singapore. Why would I? To be reminded our guys got drunk and went AWOL in the face of the Japs there? Fuck Singapore, wouldn't ever want to go there.
