krazy koati

Has someone else taken my place?

First, an advertisement for spindizzy_muck -- a brand-new community for Spindizzy, my lovely little friendly, creative, reasonably angst-proof muck. While I was feeling out support for a community chahala just created it, to my delight; I endorse most anything strengthening the community without requiring my direct supervision.

I found in my scattered notes something I forgot to write about last time I left Singapore. At Changi Airport's food court (with the only Popeye's Fried Chicken in Asia, accessible even to those without boarding passes) was the ``East and West Music Bar'', which sign offered ``Western Breakfasts'' and ``All-Day Favourites''. Their western breakfasts:

Spaghetti Prawn Noodle
Roti Prata with Chicken Curry Fried Rice
Singapore Laksa Satay
Fried Noodle Toast (with French Fries)

I imagine an engineering or a computer science major gave us the ``toast with fries'' breakfast.
