There is a widely held belief in Singapore that mixing durian (fruit) and alcohol will kill you. Tony and I set out to disprove that belief in this video. Shot in October 2006 on Friday the 13th (not intentional) and uploaded in January 2008, I won't spoil it for you by saying if we survived or not.

The A380 flies daily from Singapore to Sydney. Currently (19 Nov 2007) the schedule is:

SIN - SYD, 20:30 - 07:00
SYD - SIN, 08:05 - 14:20

That means that every day at around 2pm, if the wind is blowing from the east, the A380 will fly over my office in Changi South. If the wind is blowing from the west, I could watch it take off at 8:30pm but in Singapore it's always dark by then.



On a street in Bangkok Thailand, a vendor sold deep fried bugs. Here I am eating a grasshopper, I think. Sorry about the kid waving his hand in front of the camera.

I bought these little guys in May 2007. They do love to eat and they can eat a lot - at least compared to fish. They like to hang out on the tops of rocks. They also like to sit on top of each other. I'm not sure why.

I have this Chiminea at my house in Tucson. It's nice to sit outside on cool winter nights with a fire burning. I took a video of it one night. Nothing exciting - just a fire burning.

I took this video while walking along a road and also while riding on the back of a motorbike in Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) Vietnam. Traffic can be chaotic there.

At these temple grounds in Phuket, Thailand, people buy firecrackers and hand them to a worker who will set them off inside this brick structure.

I went to this bar in Orchard Towers in  Singapore to watch a favorite of mine band play. Really, I did. But look what happened in between sets.

At Clarke Quay alongside the Singapore River, there is a reverse bungee ride. Here is a video of a few tourists giving it a try. (This video has no sound.)
