Ten days in Singapore

I'm on my way to Singapore again. Business trip, with a few other co-workers. We've all been there many times before, and have our favorite haunts. I thought I'd post my experiences on this trip here. I haven't seen similar postings, so let me know if it's inappropriate.

On my first trip, as we were headed to the hotel from the airport, my friend asked if I'd like something to eat. It was midnight local time, but 8AM California time, so why not? He took me to the Long Beach Seafood Rest. in East Marina area. The waitstaff greeted him by name, seated us, and stayed open for an hour+ while we polished off Chili Crab, Lobster Curry, baby gailan, deep fried buns, and mango custard.

On other occasions I sampled a workingmans banana leaf thali rest. in Little India, and durian from a truck on the side of the road.

Let me know if this little project is a good idea.

BTW I'm looking for a cooking class on the weekend of November 11-12. 2-5 hours, Singapore fusion, Malay, Chinese, or Indian. Roxsana? Also cookbooks.
