There are 4 types of pple. Those who don't blog and don't read blogs, those who don't blog but read blogs, those who blog occsaionally( 1-2 wks) for the sake of posting and the enthusiastic ones who post every few days.

BTW, the answer to the previous puzzle is SIC(KNURS)INGS.

For those who don't know, I do have a food blog here. Do check it out..

Mini

Another disappointing finish, somewhat due to some strange racks and a shortage of power tiles (not blanks). 0/8 Xs, 3/8 Z and also 14/32 S. Lost the last game by 2 pts, and might have a better chance if I had challenged off ESPIEGLES*/SUB, but I had a good place to play the J so I didn't bother. Ended up losing just 36.8 equity pts that game, in several small plays. Played some nice words like DIGERATI and UPTOWNER, not gonna talk much about the games.I did manage to extend a play of VANQUISHING from VANQUISH against Cheah though. KB won the divison, surprisingly despite a slow start.


Too many strange racks-
BEGLPW? (BOWLEG 24)
CDIIIER (ETIC, 24)
BCFKMQ? (FERM 17)
BFGJMSY (GYM 18)
CDLRSTY (STY 31)
ELMOOQR (QI 11)


After it all ended, me, GH and WB followed Cheah for dinner aat the Guild house at Bukit Timah. Pretty decent food.




This was soon followed by ice-cream nearby.
