    018956 Betting on Numbers, Singapore-Style!

    When passing the scene of a traffic accident, most folks rubber neck to see the aftermath, and no more. In Singapore, gamblers note down the license plates and then go place a bet on that number coming up in the draw. Welcome to the insane world of gambling on numbers and the folly of trying to beat the house!

    109178 Murder Most Fowl

    109178 Murder Most Fowl

    Out and about again with my parabolic mic, I decided to track down a single cicada and record it going through a full cycle of the iconic cicada song. Alkaff Mansion is a good spot to get away from the city and record cicadas... but there are also plenty of crows there. Crows happen to be a natural predator of the noisy critters... and mayhem ensues!

    729825 Flamingo a Go-Go

    Jurong Bird Park, featured in early episodes early in 2020, shifted in January 2024 to Mandai, to be next to Singapore Zoo, Night Safari & River Wonders. So, it was time to visit my feathered friends in their new digs, and get up close to the American Flamingos. The way the old place was laid out, you couldn't get that close. Now, in the Crimson Wetlands, I was just a few metres from them and finally heard the noise that the stars of the Miami Vice opening sequence sound like: it's not what you think!

    238880 Attempted Murder On Orchard Road

    Attempted Murder? On Orchard Road?!? Has Hear. Here. Singapore. pivoted to being a True Crime podcast? 

    No - we're still 100% focussed on the sonic delights of Singapore, but with a newly acquired parabolic microphone, I've been recording birds. I started around my condo, then Botanic Gardens, Dempsey Hill and, finally, on to the famous shopping strip of Orchard Road, where things took a dark turn!

    Speak Solid Singlish - Taking MC

    When you're ill, it's understandable to take a day off work after seeing a doctor who issues the necessary Medical Certificate, aka MC. But when you want a day off but haven't got the necessary annual leave allowance, it's a sly practice to "fake" being ill to get that MC and a free day off work!
