It may be a bit early to talk about this, since just last month Siggraph US happened and people are still enjoying the memories of it...

just curious...any Student Volunteers here who are on for Siggraph Asia 2008 in Singapore?

Hey guys,

I will also be traveling to Singapore to be a student volunteer! I am so excited and cannot wait for it. I have never been that far away from the states, so I'm psyched! Anyone have previous experience in Singapore? What to do or not to do there?

I look forward to meeting you all there!

Hi Josh, Singapore is a fine country, you will be amazed when you arrived. I am not boasting but we are clean, lots of good food and friendly people. Most of us speaks english, so if you get lost, just ask around. But being a fine country, we are also known for strict laws. Chewing Gums is still banned in singapore, cigarettes are way expensive here. No point bringing in boxes of cigarettes as we tax as them alot as well. Singapore has a diverse culture, we are mainly dominated by 4 races: chinese, malays, indians and eurasians. Therefore, you can find a lot of difference type of cusines here, experience different culture heritage. Hmm, what else do you wish to know? Yes, we have stores like those in US if you need Starbucks or Spinelli. =p If you need to know more, do let me know or drop me a message/email.

Ray,

Thank you so much for the information. It sounds like a wonderful country. I have asked the chair in my school and he said it was an amazing country! I also have a co-worker who lived there for 8 weeks and just loved it, so from what I hear, I should be really excited, which I am!

I have heard of the strict laws. I don't smoke, do drugs, chew gum or plan to bring any explicit material into the country, so I think I'm set on that front. Haha!

One things I have heard mixed feelings on are the beaches. Some people say they are really nice and others say the ports are ruined by the heavy traffic of ships coming in and out. I guess I would believe you first considering you live there. What are your thoughts on that? Should I pack my swim trunks? Haha!

Also, are you planning on going to SIGGRAPH in December?

Good luck with teaching the class. I was at SIGGRAPH in August and it was amazing! I had a really great time. That was my first year ever attending. I'm glad I'll be able to be a part of the first ever SIGGRAPH Asia!

P.S. Master Zep, your avatar is almost causing me a stroke! Haha!
