Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Day One in Singapore April 2010

With my son Anthony, the Arsenal and AC Milan fan having our pic taken by my eldest son Matt.
My telekinetic powers are back (shades of Naruto). Prepare for a bath you foul-smelling creatures! I think I've read too much comic books. So then wait til my impression of Moses parting the Red Sea.
Ice cream on a hot afternoon (it would rain after this). Clarke Quay is normally quiet during the day but is bustling with people and activity at night. Hey, isn't the local Saatchi in this area? The weather and going in and out of cool places was making me feel awful again.
The view from our room. I'm staying at my cousin's place at the Waterside. I love the view. On every side of the condo you can see some part of the city. There's the Kallang Stadium where I saw LFC play last year -- it hasn't been torn down as planned. Maybe renovated. In this pic it's the Marina Bay Sands with their awesome casino.
