Here's where I've been working this week.
Thursday night I had excellent Chinese food with my colleages.
Singapore actually reminds me a bit of Austin. It has lots of tall, modern buildings and it's warm and humid. Singapore is like this year-round though, and it's definitely more humid than Austin. On the left in this photo you can see an advertisement for the run that I ran a few days ago.
There seems to be no shortage of culture in Singapore. This building houses the homeof the Singapore Chinese Orchestra.
Here I am in the CBD: the central business district.
On Friday, we had lunch in this food court. We had spicy chicken rice.
Last night I went for a walk along Orchard street and stumbled upon the Apple center, where a big event was underway for the introduction of Mac OS X 10.4 ("Tiger"). Today my colleage Leak Peng will show me around Singapore. He has been very welcoming and eager to show me his home city.
