AZZUCAR! LATIN SOUL PARTY @ CLARKE QUAY

 Message from MIGUEL MORALES, Owner & Director

AZZUCAR! LATIN SOUL PARTY


Hola! Cuando sientas que estas lejos de casa, ven a AZZUCAR "La Casa de los latinos en Singapur. Ven a compartir entre hermanos".

AZZUCAR! LATIN SOUL PARTY, Singapore's hottest new Latin music club. Party with the very latest in Reggaeton, Bomba, Plena, Merengue and Salsa - LIVE!

Music is my life and the music from Cuba and Latin America is the heart and soul of all Latinos. I would like to share with you, in AZZUCAR! our Latin spirit for fun, dance and great music. Music is of-course the centre of AZZUCAR! Latin music! I have hand picked, from my home country, Cuba, six highly talented, charming and young Cuban musicians, and have brought them all the way to Singapore to party with you at AZZUCAR!

We don't play only the familiar salsa. The music is fresh from Cuba, Miami and the islands of the Caribbean. Reggaeton, Merengue, Latin Jazz, the latest Latin pop - plus a few fun surprises of contemporary English tunes with a Latin twist. We already have crowds who really love it.

Our place is comfortable and intimate, with a "clubby" feel and when the band begins to play it fills with the vibrations of a true Latin Soul Party - sexy, fun and sometimes maybe a little bit...crazy.

I am at AZZUCAR! every night, sometimes even on stage. I look forward to meeting you.

A todos mis amigos latinos: Alli los espero.

BarCelona is a wine bar tuned towards a Mediterranean theme. Located off the popular Mohamed Sultan district at Robertson Walk, it exudes the Spanish ambience both inside, as well as at the courtyard by the fountain.

At one end of the wine bar is a pool table, surrounded by tall tables and chairs. This is the regular hang out area for the executives who prefer public mingling and networking. At the other end are mixtures of more laid-back seating chairs and tables, couches, and sofas. Hidden in the secluded corner of the wine bar is a private seating area - strictly for VIPs, and by reservations only. Right in the middle, you will find a long winding bar counter that flows with the place, the “live” bands and their music.

Featuring more than 100 labels of wines from countries such as Spain, France, Italy, Chile, Argentina, Australia, South Africa and the USA, you are definitely spoilt for choice. In addition to the wines, BarCelona also carries a selection of champagnes, beers, cocktails, and liquors. Cohibas, Romeo & Julietas, Monte Cristos, and the Bolivars are some of the cigars available. Healthy selections of tapaz and finger foods ensure that you will not starve while enjoying yourselves. Theme nights such as Monday Blues, Ladies Nite, Latin Nite and Soccer Nite promise to entertain you on any chosen night.

BarCelona is also the favorite venue for corporate and private events, verified by the hundreds of events that we have hosted, many of which are repeat customers.

Re: Air BnB and HDB Rentals

x9200:
I attended the event last night.

There are 1000 hosts (landlords) now in Singapore and it is increasing daily. The govt are worried about the short term lets; complaints from neighbours etc. Many landlords are breaking the law also.

Concern also that some blocks (HDB and condos) are now tourist ghettos.

If this continues then I am sure govt will take steps.

Tax avoidance also discussed !

Obvious the short term rental market is in turmoil. Legislators unsure how to address the complexities.

Bottom line:
HDB no go - the owners have a lease. HDB can stop AirBNB in it's tracks.
Private Property - I personally consider the URA rules on short term stays to be the result of lobbying by the Singapore Hoteliers Association and I would like to see them challenged. In my view; if the Management Committee for the condo (the owners) decide that they will permit an owner/s to accept short term tenants then that is enough. Otherwise what for we own our own condo freehold?
If I knew any of the flats adjacent to my flat were defacto a hotel I would never rent the place over there. Short term visitors may be a total mess and serious problem for the regular occupiers especially if the visitors are just tourists staying in SG for a few days only. I don't see any practical means to control such visitors, coming for example drunk, noisy and potentially aggressive in the middle of night or early morning when your kids go out school. No, thank you.

We lived once in a place where such adjacent flat appeared to be rented by a company for their visiting staff. The change over frequency was fortunately not high but definitely it was not the type of the neighbour one may look for, visits of some prostitutes/spgs included.

x9200:
Unfortunately I don't think there is any simple solution to such problems (other then expanding further your hardware). Linux won't help it neither. I have the same on an old P4 machine under ubuntu and on my Macbookair. From my experience browser eating resources related troubles just accumulate over its running time and closing this or that window may not necessary help (esp. some flash/java processes seem to get detached from the browser control).

Once a week or so just close/kill the browser (always check with the task manager if it is really killed) and if you have it set to have the tabs/windows restored there will be a minimum harm after reopening.

Still, if you don't have the following plugins installed:
- a flash killer
- ad blocker
install them.
They will significantly limit the browser's resource appetite.

Re: House plants

I used to have Aloe Vera plants in the States, too easy to care for and used them for when I burned myself soldering wires on things, bong injuries, cuts and scrapes, etc.

Would like to have one here for sunburn, admitting upfront I haven't done my due diligence to look for them, any suggestions on where to buy them?

I have never bought aloe vera in Singapore before but I suppose you could give quick call to the usual suspects (Far East Flora etc) and check if they stock aloe vera in pots.

But I would go find rajagainstthemachine and steal a pup from his bunch and transplant it into a pot myself.

Re: House plants

the lynx:


It looks like this:



You break off one of the thick thorny leaves and peel off the outer layer. It is like cactus where you find cool, water-filled jelly inside.

Harvest those jellies and you can use it for:
1. Desserts (like nata de coco or something inside your refreshing iced beverage)
2. All-purpose cream for burns, cuts, sunburns, acne, insect bites and rash (you can either squeeze out from a cut tip of the leaf or blend the jellies to make a gel cream)
3. Beauty regime (Mrs JR8 should know. It is a well-known traditional herb for hair loss, skin pigmentation)
4. Juice (never tried it before but you need to blend it)

Step-by-step on how to harvest it:



I actually just cut off the tip and squeeze it through like toothpaste if I plan to use the whole leaf at one time but if you want to keep aside some, it is better to just peel and scoop.

TV to watch

Brah:
Though I dread these kind of threads, have hit the wall with shows to watch, so maybe it's time again for another survey.

It was easy when Mad Men, Breaking Bad and the like were active, now seems a bit of a dry spell.

I know a lot of the current and recent shows, but am sure I'm missing some good ones.

Never cared for anything with zombies or 3-letter acronym crime shows, whatever they call CSI-something these days. The other standbys like House Of Cards are pending the next release, Just Call Saul coming soon, and Episodes is just getting started again.

Re: Beowser behavior

Brah:
The Chrome Task Manager I use, but interesting on what is installed, no PepperFlash, but I see other things I don't need and which I disabled.

I think the problems are related to the security software that came with my office remote client software.

Re: Beowser behavior

Strong Eagle:
Open the Chrome task manager... under More Tools... you'll get a list of all active pages and processes and their CPU usage... you might be able to ID a specific page.

Go to Chrome plugins... chrome://plugins/... very often you will see two entries for Adobe Flash player... both enabled. Disable the one with the path that contains 'PepperFlash'.

Disable the Java plugin... it's highly unlikely anything is using it, and if a page does want it, it will tell you. Disable any other plugins that you don't use.

From our Germany friends.

Hi, in the german press several laywers explained that there is very littel chance if Saxo tries to get the "virtual" negative balance in this country.

One lawyer requested a expert report from the University another one opened a new website for cheated SAXO Customers as well.



1) He says the terms of SAXO are against European Law saying that legal action should be only in Denmark.

For the negative balance it schould happen in the country of the customer.

For request the customer has against SAXO you can choose. Denmark our your country.



2) The terms and condition of "re-quotes" are not legally complient with German law, so these are ineffective.



Also many other thing in the terms and conditions are ineffective as well.



He thinks Saxo will not sue the customers here and wants to solve this without noise.



If they loose in court in Germany on the negative balance. The customers than have the chance to sue again here to get the rest of the money the request from Saxo.



http://www.anwalt.de/rechtstipps/margin ... 66185.html



http://www.news4press.com/EuroFranken-C ... 66781.html



They have created a website to inform german customers on the news for SAXO:



http://www.peres-partner.com/saxo-bank- ... gin-calls/



Seems SAXO is destroying itself with this behaviour and the truth now coming out now more and more in public.

There only chance to survive is to correct at minimum the negative balance and mitigate the bad reputation a bit.



Not only SAXO but also the market maker model (and capriciousness re-quotes only in favor of the bank) will be history in some time based on this incident.

there was a member in this forum, who made it to the K2/Baltoro Glacier, Concordia I believe. about 5,000 meters above sea level.

BTW, mount KK is 13,000 feet, and you can stop at any of the midway stops

PS, oddly, In Philippines, I stayed in a place, which was 7,500+ feet above sea level, a bit of headache and all was well .. if you don't mind the misty mountains and chill.
