Music I'm relaxing to — Basket Case (Green Day). OK, it's not exactly "relaxing" but it is certainly an interesting video... The live band, Somebody Who, performs this really well and I first heard them doing this song at Healy Macs in Straits Quay, Penang.

Best podcast episode I found this week — I must say I've been slacking on my podcasts, so there's nothing to report this time. BUT I've watched two TED Talks and they are... The nerd's guide to learning everything online (John Green) and Bring on the learning revolution! (Ken Robinson).
What I’m watching — Fawlty Towers. I can't believe I've never heard of this TV sitcom, which was released in 1975 (before I was born!) until very, very recently. I've finished Episode 6 of Season 1, and am ready for Season 2. Written by Rob Hartill: Inept and manic English hotel owner and manager, Basil Fawlty, isn't cut out for his job. He's intolerant, rude and paranoid. All hell frequently breaks loose as Basil tries to run the hotel, constantly under verbal (and sometime physical) attack from his unhelpful wife Sybil, and hindered by the incompetent, but easy target, Manuel; their Spanish waiter.
Something saving me time — Redmart online grocery in Singapore. It is especially nice not having to carry bulky items around such as toilet rolls and heavy things such as almond milk or laundry detergent, but instead, get them delivered to your doorstep.
