Ungrateful boss

From Adventures and random brain wave, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

One of my bosses is stuck in, of all places, Singapore since Thursday as a result of the Icelandic revenge. He is quite unhappy about it. Ungrateful man! I would not hesitate to swap places, if at all possible. ;-) In the mean time I enjoyed the brilliant weather this Saturday on DA's boat with the good company of some of his and my friends and wine, beer and ice cream. Just too bad I had to leave early as I had promised to pick up my mum from a dinner party she went to. Today I was gardening... Read more

The end of blogging

From Adventures and random brain wave, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

During the last few years, I was a regular reader of some of my friends' blogs. However, it seems that the fashion for blogging has evaporated as quickly as it emerged.DA from SF informed me he has closed his blog, he says: "don't have many things to write about and it is time to move to other projects."Sgboy has password-protected his blog, and it seems that ever since he met his fairy tale (and he supposedly is monogamous) he doesn't know what to write about.AgentX hasn't updated his blog in...

Relationships

Someone sent me this:Golden rules for finding your life partner by Dov Heller, M.AWhen it comes to making the decision about choosing a life partner, no one wants to make a mistake. Yet, with a divorce rate of close to 50%, it appears that many are making serious mistakes in their approach to finding Mr. /Miss. Right!If you ask most couples who are engaged why they're getting married, they'll say: "We're in love". I believe this is the #1 mistake people make when they date. Choosing a life... Read more

Going to Portugal

From Adventures and random brain wave, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

In a few hours I will be going to the airport to fly to Porto, where we will rent a car and drive around Northern Portugal for a week. Like last year, I am taking my mom, stepfather and OS on a trip. We'll sleep in Pousadas (historical buildings turned into hotels) which should be nice.I was sick and tired of work yesterday so it will be good to switch off for a week. Read more

Beautiful Portugal

From Adventures and random brain wave, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

The trip to Portugal was very nice. The scenery was great, especially the grapevines in the region of the Douro river (where the Port wine is produced) and in the extreme North East of the country, which is very sparsely populated and "rough". Furthermore, every town and village had some nice church or castle, the food was simple but good, the wines excellent and everything (very) cheap. A beer for 70 cents and a 3-course meal with wine for 4 for 60 euro! Somehow I didn't travel much in Europe... Read more

Bingo

It is a beautiful weekend here, weather-wise, so when KE called yesterday afternoon if I wanted to join him at Spijker Bar my first reaction was no. Come on, it is not like it is always sunny here so why disappear into one of the darkest bars on a sunny afternoon. On second thought, however, it has been such a long time that I was in Spijker I decided to join him. They had a bingo game on so we all joined and played. Bingo is, of course, normally associated with old ladies in retirement homes,... Read more

A sunny day on the beach

From Adventures and random brain wave, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I spent most of yesterday on the beach with the gang - it was a national holiday here (the last one until Christmas!) and the weather was perfect for sun, sand and sangria. We had been partying on Sunday night, so most of the gang fell asleep which gave me a chance to read my book while keeping an eye on a group of boys playing football. Sunday night finally DAZ came to the bar - ever since he is playing dad to his two children he hardly comes out. It was good to catch up with him and getting... Read more

1. A team of Australian military cooks has been rushed to Afghanistan after troops deployed there complained about the Dutch food they are being served. The Dutch are in charge of the mess and the Aussies are less than happy about the food. There have been so many complaints about the Dutch food being ?tasteless' and ?not fresh' that the issue has been raised in the parliament in Canberra.At a special defence budget hearing, Australia's military commander air chief marshall Angus Houston...

An unexpected visitor

From Adventures and random brain wave, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

Yesterday was a nice day. First, I went to see the World Press Photo Exhibition where some 200, mostly impressive, photos were shown. Here are two of the winners in the category "sport". After the exhibition we went to see Terminator Salvation (the only movie for which tickets were available that we could squeeze in between the exhibition and the happy hour), which was not as bad as suspected. After a quick Thai dinner the entire gang met in Soho and moved to Rouge after the happy hour ended.... Read more

Going to China

From Adventures and random brain wave, 4 year ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

Another last minute business trip, this time to Tangshan, China. Later today I will fly to Beijing where I will meet with two colleagues and will go by car to Tangshan. We have a small project there and it is our task if we can get a business plan together to turn it into something big. We will be joined by a few translators / interpreters from our Chinese partner firm - we will see how difficult communication will be but I fear the worst. I am afraid there won't be any time left to see the... Read more
