A lazy day.......

Got back into Singapore early yesterday evening. Raining cats and dogs when I got to the hotel. That put a little damper on the evening but not much. Just the day here then back to Japan and back to normal life. Which is good because I spent too much money on this trip.

Enough politics for the week. I've been sitting here in the room OD'ing on CNN since its really the only channel to watch. None of the movies on the TV are any good.

Soon it will be out on a mission-searching for a watch for the S.O.

Last night was interesting. I made the full circuit Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, Orchard Road.........being Friday night every place was packed. Lots of beer to be had.

Reading the paper this morining I came across this little tidbit from a Muslim Cleric in Australia:

In the religious address on adultery to about 500 worshippers in Sydney last month, Sheik Hilali said: "If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat?

"The uncovered meat is the problem."

The sheik then said: "If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred."

He said women were "weapons" used by "Satan" to control men.

"It is said in the state of zina (adultery), the responsibility falls 90 per cent of the time on the woman. Why? Because she possesses the weapon of enticement (igraa)."

Most Australians were not amused...................

Got to go!
