Deepavali & Cheap Laptops

Today is a Singapore public holiday for the Hindu festival of Deepavali, or Divali. Known in the West as the festival of light, Indians put up fairy lights on balconies and will be letting off fireworks and lighting sparklers when it goes dark.

It's another one of those discriminatory religious things at work:

Where exigencies of service permit, Hindu staff are allowed a half-day time-off on the eve of Deepavali. Annual leave taken on this day will be regarded as a full day leave.

Apparently, the Little India district will be all lit up with fire-walking ceremonies which I'll try to go to if I have time. It's crowded at the best of times but it's only a block down from Sim Lim Square (building full of consumer electronics) and the food is just heaven sent.

An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who had been doing a little homework on
this. And he in fact bought me dinner due to the fact that I found it for him.
.. lol. So allow me to reword this.... Thanks for the meal!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is important and everything. However think about if you added some
great images or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could certainly be
one of the most beneficial in its field. Very good blog!

Wonderful blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Kudos!

Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote
the book in it or something. I think that you can do with
a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead
of that, this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read.
I will certainly be back.
