The Human League / 8.10.11 Fort Canning

SINGAPORE: Dust off your shoulder pads and prepare to relive the 80s, when popular outdoor retro concert Retrolicious returns on October 8 at Fort Canning Park, with a brand new lineup of acts.

80s pop icon Belinda Carlisle, best known for her hit songs like “Heaven Is a Place on Earth” and “Summer Rain”, will perform at the concert along with pop duo Bananarama and The Human League.

June Bugs

AdN-IMG_0250Despite that phrase about the soft rains of April, here in Singapore in June there is no end in sight. I’m not so sure that there is such a thing as soft rain in SE Asia. At least Singapore is a great place to eat yourself silly. This is a task that I relish.

Staying with a friend in the Novena area has been great. There is VeloCity, Novena Square, United Square, and the MRT within a few minutes walk.

May Days

Being back in Singapore is a bit of shock to the system, but a nice shock. I’ve been exploring all the new things that have popped up over the last few years. ION Orchard is a crowded, confusing mess, but it’s starting to make sense. Sentosa is a pleasant place to read, except for the construction noises (but this is a constant hazard all over the country), but I really must keep better track of the time to avoid my current state. All of my skin is peeling off from too much sun. The intensity is quite seriously dangerous compared to the gentle touch that reaches Japan.
