I write this at the risk of being called a cultural barbarian, but when in Singapore, make sure to check out any 7-11. My general advice to foreigners visiting the US is to stay away from 7-11 convenience stores. Any edible item purchased there is not actually edible. However, this rule is different in Singapore. Perhaps the thing I like most about them is that they are about half the size of my college dorm room–yet carry everything you need and did not know you wanted. For example, tea eggs.
Excited about tonight’s APSIA graduate forum at National University of Singapore.
