Must see/do: 1. Singapore Flyer. Best view of the city, and one of the biggest ferris wheels in the world. 2. Subway. Take it all the way around the city. The outskirts are quite different from the central city, less clean, more "real". 3. Food shiaks. Head to little India and find the Tekka Mall. Great food, dirt cheap, safe to eat. You can get a whole mean for $2-3, and eat lavishly for $5. Same goes for Chinatown, but get out of the touristy Chinatown and check out the real Chinatown, particularly Chinatown Plaza. 4. Sim Lim Square. More electronics thank you've ever seen in your life. 5. Night Safari. Take the bus over, and see some of the strangest creatures in the world. 6. Fish spa. Go get a pedicure while you're at the Singapore Flyer. Turkish doctor fish will nibble all the dead skin off your feet and legs while you sit there for 15-20 minutes, feels weird, but very relaxing, and your feet will never feel softer.

I'm also a first time reader, but you've got a place in my RSS reader now! (Thank Nora for the referral!) I would definitely enjoy the Air Dry Wine Glass Drying Rack the most. I hate drying my delicate glassware on the dish rack, I'm always afraid it will shift and crack when I least expect it! Not to mention water spots! I'm also a fan on Facebook.

Stand mixer FTW. Frank, if you don't have one already, get a Butter Bell Crock. It keeps your butter fresh at room temperature for up to 30 days, no refrigeration required. It's my new favorite kitchen gadget.
Great article Frank! I've thought about doing this myself, but as you discovered, it just doesn't seem worth the time and effort. If you can find it, buy imported French butter. It doesn't have any of the added flavorings or preservatives of American butter. I buy mine from the local MET Foods supermarket, so I have to imagine it's available somewhere up there. It's a little bland, but it tastes much "cleaner" (i.e. natural.)
