The Postman Always Rings Twice

Figured I should start the ball rolling for 2006 before I lapse too much.

Two noble houses, both alike in dignity. One leaves bills that have to be paid; the other, flyers from morons who think that killing several hundred trees a month will get them work - never mind if people who aren't looking for new homes will probably not care if you're the 'number 1 real estate agent' in the East; never mind they'd probably not think of you, the idiot jamming up their mailboxes, when they're ready to sell.

Funny thing though, legit mailman chooses not to castigate the other.

Anyway, not been updating because:

1. Looking to move out of the studio.

2. Looking to fly to Hanoi for a sabbatical - need the rest and the rediscovery of the discipline. And besides, I really need to be away from Singapore.

Which reminds me (and the missus was the one who told me to do this): does anyone want to come along? Cheaper airfare if there're two to fly. We'll just be flying in and out together, nothing else. I'd be too morose anyway to be good travelling company. Leave a comment if you're keen - I'm looking at a ten-day to two-week trip...

3. Having more parties - who said things only happen during the festive season?

4. Looking to streamline the business. I need to get a good system going for filing, quoting and billing and sticking to it.

5. Looking forward to an even better year ahead than 2005.

    Happy New Year Terence! I do hope you have fun on the trip and get the required rest and re-charge that you need. :)

    Moving studio into a bigger place?

    Tiger Airways has decent fares to Hanoi... cheap rate is $40 one way... if you can't get that then it's the $70 fare... either way you'd only be paying about $200+ for a round trip, with taxes.

    I flew them to Hanoi last year and they weren't that bad...

    Must check out Sapa and Halong Bay... and the water puppets in Hanoi.

    Have fun...
