Let me have another go at a fairly teneous but free connection from Changi airport where I am currently waiting for my flight to Mumbai.
As anticipated I had a good time in Singapore with lots of shopping at Sim Lim plaza, I got myself a new palm Tx5 which has wireless capability, and lunch at the Tanglin club with Digna.
Digna is the wife of Neil a colleage of mine in PNG she runs a gallery of beautiful Burmese laquerware and yes I did buy some. Now I have to figure out how to get it back to NZ, difficult as it's rather large, but I am sure I'll wprk it out. In the meantime it stays at their place as I certainly wasn't going to carry it through India.
