    Boss Stewie goes to Singapore

    If you're wondering about the lack of updates, it's because I'm down in Singapore for a few days to do some work.

    I normally take a flight from Penang or KL to Singapore but this time I decided to save some money so I tried the bus.
    It was my first ever time taking the bus to Singapore and also probably the most painful 5 hours of my life having to get off the bus twice to clear immigration on both sides of the border.

    After screwing up things with tuh tuh, my baby got me to bring her down to Singapore with me in spite of me constantly reminding her that I was coming down to Singapore not for a holiday but for work.

    So as you would guess, the only 'tourist attraction' I've managed to take her to ever since was the Singaporean National Library.

    Which I must say looked a little (ok fine a lot) more impressive than our Malaysian National Library.

    Taking me around Singapore and trying to convert me into a Singaporean is Ming, the Singaporean internet entrepreneur I once wrote about.

    KL and Singapore are pretty different in their own ways but yet it never fails to amuse me how alike Malaysians and Singaporeans can be.

    Going out with Ming's friends, many of them couldn't tell that my baby and I were Malaysians since we talked, acted and did almost everything like Singaporeans do.

    The truth is that as much as we like to make fun of each other, Malaysians and Singaporeans are very much alike.

    So much that even our blogospheres have pretty much merged into one.

    Our Malaysian blogs get many Singaporean readers and Singaporean blogs get plenty of Malaysian readers.

    I even find Malaysian blogs pinging themselves on blog aggregators like Tomorrow.sg and Singaporean blogs pinging themselves on our very own PPS.

    Ahh I love our little South East Asian blogosphere.

    Which reminds me of a question that someone once asked me

    "Boss Stewie... you're a blogger.. you get people reading all your bullshit (that was during the time when we used to write funny stuff on Leng Mou) every day and you've got plenty of blog aggregators to ping them on...

    What more can you bloggers ask for from the internet?"

    Maybe you guys could help me out with an answer.


    • You must never have met Singaporeans in your uni who remind you of the time Singapore beat Malaysia in some football match.

      I don't know what match it was, I don't know if Malaysia screwed up royally, but I whacked the fella all the same. :P

    • Chapree Da Grande : Its not that hard to find malay food here. :)

      Dang it..was coming back from JB to SG on Monday night. I reached JB Senai Airport at 8.45pm-9pm.

      Got on the MAS bus, and reach home at 12.30am

      Do you how freaking long that is to be stuck at customs!!??

      OKay fine, to be fair enough, the journey by bus from senai to jb customs is about 30min to 45mins, give or take. Which would put me to arrive at JB customs around 10pm. Right?

      At 11.30PM, on a MONDAY NIGHT, immigration (SG side) was still flooded with people.

      Not to mention, the queue that I was in, was CLOSED midway which forced us to filter into the next lane.

      Gak...I hate travelling.

      After getting thru SG customs, I went to wait for my bus, cos there was a huge traffic jam as well.
      I waited. And waited. And waited.

      After seeing a few buses go past, after realizing that those buses were behind MY bus...I cleverly deduced that my bus has left without me.

      All the expletives in the world are insufficient to sum up my feelings right there and then.
