its been hectic
Been a real crazy-whirlwind week at the office, with entire-day-long meetings and interactions with overseas colleagues before they flew back to Netherlands yesterday. Really friendly bunch of people them Dutch are. Point to note, they really like their pineapple juice! So carry a pint of fresh pineapple juice and you'll be their new best friend! LOL
Had a lovely dinner at Brazil Churrascaria with the guys to cap off their visit. Its definitely for the carnivores like me, cuz, man, the meat just kept coming: chicken, beef, lamb, pork, fish, grilled, flamed, fried, roast, whatever you name it, they've probably got it and then some. If anyone else is dropping by SG lately, hit me up, i'll bring you there - i'm game for more meat, haha
I'm pretty much stoned for the weekend, especially with an in-camp coming up next week. It'll be a short respite for me - a week of no work by order of the government, woohoo! ha
Interesting article about consumerism in the NYTimes, including mention of Rosemary Willaims, a video and installation artist who always hated shopping but decided to create a piece title "The Wall of Mall", chronicling her experience at the Mall of America.
Here's a couple of vids to interest ya:
