There is a sensible rule of thumb for the portly man, a rule that seems to have not been sensibly shared amongst the community.

At a certain stage of weight gain, you have gone into the territory of being too fat to tuck.

Of course there is also another option at thi...

I tend to prescribe to the idea that best intentions more often than not create bad outcomes.

A good example of this is the attempt to arrange social events with different groups of friends.

Be that a dinner with old school friends and university friends, or work col...

I find little more frustrating than having to watch the slow distortion of free market capitalism into crony capitalism.

Despite this distortion being clear as day and troubling, it receives little attention.

It is in fact ignored. 

Rather than questioning how this di...

We live in an age where people are able to read different opinions on almost every subject at the touch of a phone.

I have previously lamented on the importance of men, over the age of 35, no longer wearing wear white trainers with light blue jeans, or preferably any type of jean at all. 

This avoids one looking like an American, ensures you show the world you recognise that you ar...

It may seem an obvious statement, but people view the world very differently.

I have lived in Singapore for over 13 years now, it has become my home. My wife is Singaporean, my kids hold Singapore passports and her family is also based in Singapore. 

However, I am not a Singaporean. And despite this being my home, I socially still tend to gravita...
