It costs far too much to drink alcohol here.
HMV's having a sale. Picked up The Flaming Lips' Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots (Better late than never I guess! And under the benevolent influence of Vaya), a budget DVD of Kurosawa Akira's brilliant epic The Seven Samurai and a similarly no-frills VCD of the Coen Brothers' O Brother, Where Art Thou. The bill came to about S$30 altogether -- which was how much I spent drinking with some friends later in the evening, after a dinner to celebrate a birthday.
Alcohol costs far too much here. I'd rather have good movies and music.
