The Intelligent People Syndicate gathered once again for a night out for the last time (and my first time ever since one of us came back to Singapore) before we all drown in our own pool of work. This time round the participants include a bioengineer (myself), businessman (Wilson), life science scientist (Johnson), pharmacist (Bing Xun) and a mechanical engineer (Yuan Kang).
We met pretty late at around 11pm. Luckily we had a vehicle to navigate around Singapore. I was fiddling with the GPS feature of Nokia N95 while on the car and it did not work at all. Either the feature is not working or I am too impatient to wait for more than 1min to obtain my GPS coordinates. Grrr~
Was already 6am the next day by the time I got to sleep. Hur hur~
The stuffs that we discussed/did (and my aging brain still remember):
Odex suing people who have ISP records of them downloading Japanese anime which Odex has the distributing rights in Singapore. We were wondering the validity of tracking people down using their IP address since there is a case in the US where this method is proven to be inaccurate in capturing the right people.
Johnson updated us about a list of carcinogenic food we consume daily. Top on the list is black pepper~! Other shocking item is broccoli. 😦 Our conclusion? Just continue eating… Though I might second guess my choice of black pepper [insert meat here] in restaurants next time.
Truth or just pure urban legend: an exotic Japanese restaurant which serves “specially ingested food”. Apparently Wilson has already heard of it from his primary teacher. And his included even more details such as a “fried” variety of the dish.
Three times a charm~! Walk in pairs~! One man down~!
MacDonalds at Kallang is the only MacDonalds branch with power points. Great place for studying if one is using laptop. And MacDonalds really serve breakfast at 4am; We bought ours at 4am sharp.
I think it’s time for me to research on more 24-hour operating venues in Singapore for our future gatherings. We had some trouble thinking of places to visit after our supper at the famous soya bean house. Hmm…
