That’s mean

Marmalade Kitchen It’s no good to make fun of people when they mispronounce things. It’s the bad English karma, you know, where you end up mispronouncing something the same way as the person you’ve made fun of. I’m talking about when people say, ‘that’s mean‘, in this context: “This thing is very complicated. That’s mean I find it very difficult to do”. Get what I mean? Yes? Well, then, that’s mean you are very clever. Today, I was told to make a reservation at the Marmalade Kitchen, so I laughed and said, ‘Marmalade Pantry’ lah, before calling up Marmalade Pantry and asking if it was the Marmalade Kitchen. That’s mean I was laughed at right back. Technorati Tags: food, marmalade pantry, singapore Tweet


Pam Oei is rocks! Pam Oei rocks! We already know that from her spot on our podcasts, but to attend her concert, ‘Pamdemonium’ tonight at the Esplanade, phwoar! Because you’ll run out of superlatives trying to describe how good the show was. So, phwoar! Can? As mrbrown said as we left, Pam’s very special rendition of ‘I will survive’ is worth the price of admission ($27) alone. Accompanied by a band comprising some of the best musicians in town, she also belts out (I mean, really, really belt out ok?) the baddest rockest songest for your pleasure. If you haven’t already caught the show, there are two shows left for you to go buy tickets for and watch (Sunday 7.30pm & 9.30pm). And enjoy. You better do it, cos Pam Oei rocks! Go to it!

Swing low, sweet lorry-iot

Thank you Uber Mommy, for the pic. Today, a lorry belonging to, or being rented by, a political party drove by our our office several times in an effort to swing my vote. Too bad I don’t live in this area, and too bad I don’t get to vote this year anyway. Else I might have been swung, y’know? Remember, prison got no broadband!
