This episode was recorded in Singapore.
The first time I came to Singapore I hated it because it is so clean and orderly.
Now I love it because it is so clean and orderly and that there are no homeless people or street children begging you for money.
In this episode I enumerate the many strange and interesting laws that Singapore is famous for. I talk about the midget boxing match I saw in Manila and how I implored the owner to change the sign to little people boxing.
For travel tips to Singapore I suggest you not waste your time or money on having a Singapore Sling at Raffles. Do stay at The Sultan hotel near the Sultan mosque and if you truly love yourself you will make your belly happy by eating mutton murtabak.
One of the best culinary delights I have discovered in this life and what I would fly to Singapore just to eat is black pepper crab, I salivate just typing the words thinking of it. Two of my favorite Tom Waits are related to Singapore and are played and discussed in this glorious tribute to Lion City. To cap off this excellent time I had in Singapore I was offered free tickets to see Lauryn Hill headline the Sing Jazz festival. I understand that I am getting older but there were some things that were off about Lauryn Hill's performance. I know it is a rarity to see her perform and I was lucky enough to be right in the front to observe every moment of her 90 minute set. There are ways that you can ruin Christmas and there are ways that you can ruin someone's Rolling Stones concert but keeping positive vibrations in your water filled body can help you avoid that. I learned that at the gong bath I went to. "How you gonna win if you ain't right within?" Put on your crab bib and get yourself right with the black pepper love that is all the glorious delights of Singapore! Enjoy!
