Ulrich, after doing time in Stadelheim went checking out new opportunities in the Asian Duck Weed Business and therefore went on a business trip to Singapore after Sheila liked it here some years ago.

He found this lovely christmas tree decoration in the botanical garden which made him feel a little bit at home. There is a selection of christmas tree balls of all Bundesliga Clubs. Merchandising is big international business. There is a nearly almost traditional 2km path of decorated christmas trees in the park and now also a new donation programme “Give to the Garden” aiming to rise funds for the Garden’s research, education and other needs. (THE STRAITSTIMES 29.11.2016)

Ulrich was also able to free and take home one of the limited edition Fullerton Santa Bears and by that donating some money to the “Food from the Heart” initiative in which the “Fullerton Chefs for a cause” participated with the charity Buffet Dinner at the Town restaurant. Urich insists, that this donated money did not steem from tax evasion and that he is no welfare scrounger (“Sozialschmarotzer”).

He also enjoyed the Indian quarter.

Sheila also enjoyed the Singapore airport a lot. Passengers can rent little rooms with decent comfort by the hour for acceptable prices and can also take advantage of the rooftop pool inside the airport terminal. Smoking is strictly forbidden and will be punished with fines up to 1.000.000 $ to avoid evacuations of the airport. Sheila hasn’t seen a airport terminal before where you can walk through the halls in swimsuit. The pool offers a limited view over the airport and runways and they even got a pool bar were your can enjoy a suitable “Singapore Sling” before you continue your trip.

The Black Forest Cake in Singapore was OK too though it didn’t contain the usual cherry spirit.
