RT @ApostrophePong: Every time I slip soju into my tongue, it feel bless. [THIS IS HOW IT BEGINS.]

@junkfoodjourney It can’t possibly be the laksa. It can’t be that fast acting. I blame the Thai diner at the Golden Mile.

@ApostrophePong Singapore has not bored me yet, but it has poisoned me. Bangkok has never done that.

Uhoh. Lunch is suddenly taking revenge.

Trishaw. Covered in rope light. Boom box blasts out The Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive.” THIS IS NOT BANGKOK WHAT IS GOING ON.

via Cloudhopper

Yeah given my upset stomach from earlier I reckon my strategy tonight has been awesome.

Oh this is getting too bizarre even for me.

Now there is a confusing Japanese TV commercial about a dog pissing on a soccer player in front of his mother.

Finally, after many bus transfers the director glossed over, the hotel. “Look! Draft beer is half price. We can drink as much as we want.”

Meanwhile, here in the cafe, a bluesy rendition of “A Nightingale Sang in Barklay Square” plays. IT ALL MAKES SO MUCH SENSE.

via Cloudhopper

And now an All Nippon Airlines advert shows us all the beautiful, glamorous parts of Japan, TO WHICH THIS BUS CLEARLY DOES NOT GO.

via Cloudhopper

Another bus! Not a local bus either. Another HIGHWAY bus!

via Cloudhopper

“Let’s take a picture together as memorabilia.” YES! LET’S! WE ARE AT MAXIMUM EXCITEMENT!

via Cloudhopper

“There are other Australian animals here as well.” WALLABIES! EMUS!”

via Cloudhopper

Lunch over. On the bus now. “If they have enough transfer time they can meet the koalas.” “Unless they are dead.” WTF?

via Cloudhopper

The last bus across the bridge is at 1345. TWO HOURS AWAY. Lunchtime. As usual, Ebisu orders a hamburger steak for himself.

via Cloudhopper

Having ridden the little yellow cable car to the bridge to Honshu, the wife judges it. “It is more interesting to look at than to ride.”

via Cloudhopper

During the ad break we discover that the program is sponsored by myjapanholiday dot com. The surprise across the cafe is palpable.

via Cloudhopper

A woman speaks slowly and calmly to camera. “I am at maximum excitement,” she says. “It won’t last four days,” says her husband, dejectedly.

via Cloudhopper

“Their problem is not the breakfast. It is how to get to Honshu.”

via Cloudhopper

“Already they are dumbfounded with a huge problem!”

via Cloudhopper

They must catch a bus. BUT WHICH ONE? Number 8, says a passerby. “The power of a local is helpful indeed.” Indeed.

via Cloudhopper

Channel NewsAsia is showing Amazing Race Japan, or a clone. “They will make the most prefecture border crosses in TV history!”

via Cloudhopper

Here we go. HooHa Cafe, Bar and Grill on Arab Street. Ignoring their “region’s best tenderloin steak”. Considering the “signature laksa”.

via Cloudhopper

Tactical error. Try a little further from the mosque if you’re after a beer with dinner, Stilgherrian.

via Cloudhopper

Mobile. Just wandering locally for dinner, I think. Despite the nap I’m still so very tired and I need to be up very early tomorrow.

Trying to work out how I can persuade all the koels to join the Catholic Church.

via Janetter for Mac

penbo Indigenous people get their own intervention over child abuse, churches get tax free status, school funding and policy influence. Nice.

samquigley One day I, too, will be as famous as The Spiegeltent for just kind of hanging around outside the places people actually want to go.

Sun plan, previewed: Record material for “Patch Monday podcast; write @crikey_news piece; wander Singaporeq; 0045 SGT Mon SQ231 SIN-SYD.

via Janetter for Mac

Sat plan, updated post-nap: Think of somewhere interesting to have dinner; go there; have dinner; kill all the koels; celebrate.

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you to Si Chuan Dou Hua, Singapore, for a magnificent dinner last night. parkroyalhotels.com/en/hotels/sing… And to @GHADiscovery for paying for it.

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelneale @iain_chalmers Gentlemen, you have my sympathy. The koel is an evil bird. Evil. EVIL.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

@Hippopeteamus Just checking. Has anyone beaten you to death yet today?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Hippopeteamus

I remember the kerfuffle when our Enmore neighbourhood currawongs, miners, lorikeets and ravens all joined forces to repel a koel.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah that nap cheered me up, didn’t it.

via Janetter for Mac

I SWEAR I AM GOING TO FIND THAT KOEL AND SMASH ITS HEAD INTO A PULP FUCKING ANNOYING BIRD.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus J’ai été perdu en traduction erronée. Ma vie est trop compliquée pour les Googles. Ils sont inutiles.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis fatigué et malade et mécontent. J’espère que vous êtes mieux maintenant?

RT @markparton: The joys of cleaning out the Guinea pig hutch [Worst. Euphemism. Ever.]

via Janetter for Mac

Well that banana’s useless now.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BernardKeane: Woman buys cheap iPad that turns out to be a mirror is.gd/dVDppv claims to have learnt her lesson

via Janetter for Mac

People who write headlines containing “alarming”, “shocking”, “amazing” etc. I can do my own emotional reactions, thanks.

via Janetter for Mac

In the same way that we should thank the remora for the shark?

via Janetter for Mac

I will have another coffee before beginning to execute that plan. There may be further executions after that.

via Janetter for Mac

Sat plan: Finish @CSO_Australia story; decide if “Patch Monday” is INTERNET FILTERZ or not (whaddayasay?); loose in Singapore with a friend.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @cjjosh: NOOOOO - there are little kids doing gangnam style in the xmas pageant [How many signs of the Apocalypse again…?]

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce @paulwallbank My immediately previous tweet applies to you two as well.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@juhasaarinen If you dare start drawing inferences from any of this I shall grind off the last centimetre of all ten of your toes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Pro Tip: If you’re discussing spelling in Australian English then it’s better to cite a dictionary of that language and not another.

via Janetter for Mac

In a better, more sensible world this iron spike would be getting a serious and ubiquitous workout this morning.

via Janetter for Mac

@paulwallbank According to my Twitter location field, the schedule on my website and my most recent Weekly Wrap post, YES I’M IN SINGAPORE.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

I think the only logical course of action now is to make a coffee and then repeated smash my own face onto an iron spike.

via Janetter for Mac

The internet filter would have worked had it been nuclear.

via Janetter for Mac

FFS I thought there was some high-grade stupidity from the INTERNET FREEDUMZ mob yesterday, but the derpocalypse continues today. Kill me.

via Janetter for Mac

The one that shoots a bolt straight through the brain. Only can it be made more painful?

via Cloudhopper

That gun thing they have in abbatoirs? Get me one. Now.

via Cloudhopper

OH: “No, I don’t look good, I’m so skinny!” “No, you’d look good in Dior…”

via Cloudhopper

Apparently we haven’t spent enough money.
