I leave tomorrow for a quick work trip to Singapore and I feel woefully unprepared for the food scene because I haven't done any research. I suppose I have >20 hours of air travel time to do some reading.

It's almost impossible to eat badly in Singapore.

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Supplemental property taxes + upkeep on 2 cats have taken a bite out of our savings, so for right now all we have is President's Day weekend down in Cambria, which is on the coast just south of Hearst Castle.

Cambria is beautiful though.

Cuba - March 2nd-9th. Staying in the Frozen District. The house built by the Goodyear Corporation in the early 50's.

Was asked to bring anything for a "52 Chevy." And that was a very serious request. Trying to find some door handles, but no luck so far.

Boston in February. End of February, so no risk of Pats victory parade (I was caught in that once, in the snow).

My two visits to Singapore predated online food research, and yes, you can just eat anything and have a good time. I no longer know how I found the food court in a multi-story car park and ate the fish head. Must have been a tip from someone.

Still can't find anything related to a '52 Chevy. Anyone know where to find old Chevrolet parts?

Forgot to mention the trip is a culinary tour of Cuba. As most know, there still needs to be a cultural reason for U.S. citizens to visit. Yourcuba (the name of the travel agency) organizes this 7-day culinary tour three times a year. It's limited to 12 people and the dinners sound appealing.

Received the complete itinerary the other day and two of the meals are on a beach where a chef regularly hosts guests and serves various seafood. Seven days, seven chefs and one overnight trip. Should be interesting.

You can Google and find specialist sellers.    Not cheap, but...

Ouch!!!

Parts prices are ludicrous - but thanks for the idea. Would be better off asking American Pickers to find some.
