you need a better web site
Just like a typical Singadorkian,when dealing with an ang mo,we don't expect
you all to suck up to us,because the lot of you do not have any personality.You can
change your name to Mike Lee,Turbo Ong.or Whitey Yeo,but the fact remains the same,to make a joke out of a beautiful language such as English is not amusing to
anyone else,except uneducated wankers like you.
Your a punk if you do what ever your wife says, BITCH!
you where the worst f*cken teacher i ever had you piece of f*cken sh*t. eat sh*t and die you filthy c*ck sucker...
From Simon Isaacs
Quote your front page .. "One final note: for preferential treatment when you arrive at Heathrow airport, announce that you are a member of Shin Fane (an international Jewish peace organization-the "shin" stands for "shalom")..."
Just a quick note to mention that "Shin Fane" are the Irish terrorist organisation responsible for the murder of 1000's of innocent British citizens. Hope you think this is funny. Many parents in the UK wont.

Subject: Your Article on "Why Engineers Make Good Husbands"
It's a really nice article. My boyfriend is also an engineer. I guess that there's really some truth in that article cos' my boyfriend is so busy that he doesn't even have time for me. I read the whole article with amusement and I must say that I really enjoy that. I guess I would not have to think twice if he were to propose to me. Keep up the good work!
Hi Mr Brown
I graduated from the same kindergarten! (though not from the same year as I'm not in the pix). The teacher on the left taught me before too, but i have forgotten her name...
You don't look that bad what....quite cute with the..er...thick specs! What a studious little boy!
Just to let you know that I enjoyed reading what's on your website...sarcastically witty and loads of fun to read!
You've got to be kidding. My Engineer husband left me and our new born son for his secretary. Then he left her for somebody else.
I am actually from the same kindergarten as you. I recognise the 2 teachers. I was staying at block 3 at aljunied at that time. I believe that I was there probably sometime around 1976-77.
HulloS mr. Brown.... REALLY glad to see that you are back in action, hope that it was not anything nasty that kept you off for that long... YES, I do go and check for updates every other day.... Things in Singapore get rather irritable at times and common folks like us (?) have to put up with it. You, however takes it in grand humour and gives all our idosycracies the parting shot -- the final act of definace if nothing else. PLS keep it up =) And about that photo addition of yours, you look really very rather DORKY.... hee~
Dear Mr Brown
I have been a fan of you most humourous website for yonks and I am most disturbed by the contribution by that heathen who wrote ''Advice for Tourists to UK and would like to make a few corrections.
'goolies' can also be taken to be mean the unspeakable region of men aka the nether regions
'quid' means £ eg. how much for a beer? 2 quid=£2 or 2 dollars if in singapore dollars
'tosser' also means one who self-satisfies I'm sure no further explanation needed
'wank' means to self satisfy without a companion
If i kiss the librarian everytime he brings me a manuscript, he'd probably think I was gay!
British food is known to be the worst in Europe, thats why one is likely to find more Indian and Italian and Kebab shops than Englis restaurants.
Travelling in a cab will certainly cost you more than £2, in fact it is very likely to cost you more than £5. If you pay the cabby only £2, the bobby will come and sort you out instead of sorting the cabby out!
Ladies certainly do have to pay while travelling on the tube like everyone else!
Parts of the contribution were funny or trying to be funny, but the trying to be funny bit were a bit 'trying too hard'
I have been studying here for well over a year and i know what I am talking about.

Hi there, I'm you new "neighbor" on the net. :) www.mrbrown.net
The Mr. Brown Network
you kiddy pix reminds me of somebody. Nope, I'm not in your kindergarten class. I wasn't even born then.
But really, you look like my stuffed brown rabbit. It's not an insult. And don't you dare laugh. He happens to be my favourite stuffed toy. It must be your chubby cheeks and the dorky expression. Sooooooo cute!!!!
Anyway, just wanna add that I'm a great fan. (BTW, I'm using my father's account. Hee, hee!)

Gee, I've been away for so long I've forgotten what a tea dance is...

if you ever do publish that book everyone seems to be clamouring for I will definitely be in line to get a copy.
From Li Ching
Been going through your poetry pages, started with the contributions since i had high expectations for you after reading some of your e-zine...and when i finally read Snug after being brought to the brink of exhaustion by some of those contributions, yours lifted me again. i really enjoyed it and will not demean it by trying to analyse why, suffice to say it touched me greatly :) Proceeding to the rest....
From TL Lee
A friend of mine pestered me to visit your site awhile ago, and it turned out to be his good deed for the year.
The first time i read through musings, my family thought i had gone mad; i was sitting in front of the screen for an hour or so, laughing continuosly, and so hard that tears were dripping off my face.
i just thought i'd say thank you for making me laugh so hard, and that i like you very much for that. :)
From Hwee Khan
Just wanted to drop a line to tell you what a nice job you're doing with your webpage (Not to say you don't know that already). It's nice to know that people in Singapore can still go somewhere to gripe about everything that irks us. Believe me, I think you're doing a great service for all of us, giving us a chance to laugh at ourselves (and our neighbours). The fact that it is totally hilarious, frank and actually intelligent only serves to increase its appeal.
I have only recently started looking up your website, but that has since then spent countless hours looking through your archives. What has amazed me is the fact that a lot of what is in those pages have also probably passed through many brains in Singapore as well, but no one says it, assuming that it would not be 'appropriate'. I guess what I'm trying to say is that you have the guts to say it out, regardless of what anyone else may think. Even though I'm not sure if that's a smart move (heard from the ISA lately?) I must admit I do admire the guts and the dedication you put in your work. And by the way, I think the fact that you bash everything that pisses you off is a good idea. Why? Because that's how we are. People (i.e. Singaporeans) are too cautious in their speech & actions these days. oh well. anyway - u the man. and keep the site alive!
It has been a cool and nice 45 minutes running through your website. Instead of running through the net to get inspiration for a caption for a handphone client, you got me hooked on for... that long... well done.
Well, I am in advertising and the captions are cool and bitchy if I may add, which stops everybody to read - the real essence of good advertising.
Incidentally, are you in creative of sort. If it is really you and Mrs. Brown in Gone in the Wind... you both are pretty good looking.
Cheers again for a wonderful site - and despite me not getting my work done ... yet.... it has been most enjoyable.
From Ann Baxter
I came across your website while reading the newsgroups.
I have to say it was certainly refreshing reading original material coming from a Singaporean. I especially enjoyed the parking fees rates ($several thousand dollars!!)
I had spent sometime going through your wedding album and may I say you and your bride looked absolutely fabulous and my best wishes to you both always.
I left Singapore in 1980, lived in the US for 12 years,I'm married to an Aussie and live in Australia and commute between Aus and US often. The last time I was back in Singapore was the early 90's for a couple of days.
I believe people and places have changed in Singapore and yet I suspect there are still a good few retaining those quirks which (as far as I remember) were awfully neck wrenching or nerve wrecking.
I'm glad with your website, and telling how it is has impressed upon me that I'm not alone noticing those quirks.
From Lay-Hinn from Vancouver
Shit man! I have never laughed so hard in my life!! I think your site is easily the best Singapore site around! Especially with the SNE list!
Throw Gurmit Singh out of that crappy pseudo Letterman Show,. Get on TV or something (Government and TCS Allowing) I'd like to buy you coffee one day, and hear you impart your words of wisdom to me and my GF! I know I am a bit exclamatory...but I AM rather excited! (never read stuff so funny for a long time) no, I'm not on crack.

Maybe I am on the wrong wed side. I am looking for the company call KING CAR FOOD IND. CO., LTD. TAIPEI, TAIWAN

The company is making an ice coffee call Mr. BROWN. I am looking for a contact for this company. The best is a fax number.
Hello, I woke up early this Sunday morning (at 6:00 am - God knows what's happening !) and having nothing much to do, I decided to surf the net. This is the first time that I browse through your website. I must say it's quite entertainining, except that I could not help thinking why you called the website Mr Brown Town when you are a Yellow one? Yeh ! my brains working in such early hours, especially on a SUNDAY morning. Should have been sleeping right?? Anyway, I like your light-hearted comments on some issues, like the stupidest ATM, the many faces of Benedict Goh, where's the hand of Daryl David in Women's Weekly November issue, and, of course, your kindergarten photo - great memories.
By the way, is Benedict Goh back with TCS - timeslot 7:00 pm every evening. It's so silly, ah 1, ah 2, ah 3, 4, 5 to do the CPR ! Did not follow the series, had a glimpse of the show recently.
Going back to bed now.
Hi, Do you offer any other engineering degrees from either NUS or NTU?
I am looking for a doctorate degree. I have finished my BS and MSIS in the information field but do not have the money or the strength to get my Doctorate degree. So, I want to buy it if I can... I have the skills and knowledge to deserve one.
