Makan + Wiki = Maki ?

Makan means food in Malay. Singaporeans love to makan. Wiki is a software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. What happens when you combine the 2? You get Maki - The Makan Wiki :) Thanks to my fiance we now have a wiki page dedicated to where you can find the best Singaporean food. Wikis are meant for collaboration so everybody please participate and help us find the best food in Singapore :)

We set up this page because we couldn't find one that met our needs. We were looking for something comprehensive, something that incorporated feedback from everyone, yet easy to use. Be the first to check it out. And remember to put your name next to your recommendations. We like to know who to thank when taste the most divine chicken rice!

Run Forest Run!

Fiance is having his "week off" from work before starting at his new job so we went to watch the Boston Marathon during lunch. It's tradition at my company to provide free boxed lunches the day of the marathon so we can go watch the runners as they come through Natick ... perhaps to make up for the fact that we have to work on Patriots Day? I picked up an extra box, though I was horrified to realize later that all xyz company employees could be identified a mile away by their geeky totally uncool (did I say geeky already?) white cardboard lunch boxes. A matching accessory for engineers? Anyway we quickly finished our lunch in the car. But enough of the ungratefulness, Fiance managed to capture some cool shots of the runners. I posted his favorite :)

Somebody Gonna Get a Hurt Real Bad

I managed to skip out of yet another torturous evening meeting last week to go watch Russell Peters at Babson College. Aside from having to walk 2 miles in heels from parking to the auditorium in 30 degree weather, and having to deal with imbecile college organizers, it was all worth while. Not only did I derive great pleasure from masquerading as a college kid, I also laughed for a full hour till my stomach hurt. I suppose I shouldn't be ungrateful and extend a small thank you to the kids for bringing him instead hah :)

For those of you who don't know this guy, he's a stand up comic. If you are indian, asian, or international you have have have to watch his clips that have been percolating the internet over the past couple months. He's extra brutal in real life and rags on anyone and everyone. But hey it's all fun and games as long as it's not you he picks on right? ;)

A funny lookin kinda guy:
