P1050093 (1)

I just had to take a photo of these monks who were visiting the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore when we were there last week on a crew trip (hence the long silence on the blog). I am a LONG TIME FAN of COKE and this scene was just too good to pass up.

Head to my instagram account @therealmarketman for more than 30+ glimpses into that recent trip to Singapore. More on the blog up soon…

    Just don’t overdo it MM. My dad developed diabetes because he drank too much of it.

    ami, I haven’t had a regular Coke in nearly 20 years, I have its more evil twin brother, Diet Coke. But since I don’t smoke, drink too much, do drugs, or other vices, I think if I died of Diet Coke that would be a reasonable cause. I made it to 50, and honestly, I think people just live too long these days…

    As our old friend Ben Franklin said, “Most people die at 25 and aren’t buried until they are 75.”

    Last trip to the Vatican I saw there was a Coke machine right at the door to the Sistine chapel. Some placement, huh?

    I suppose vegetarian monks, unlike Mormons, are allowed to drink coke. ;-)

    Had to hunt in the archives for your 11 June 2015 link to instagram (not techie enough for instagram) Had a very lovely time catching up on all your delightful postings. Thank you, MM. Read that Anthony Bourdain is doing (or has he already been there and filmed???) to include the Philippines – his latest travel show this fall – re-visiting ‘the best roast pig ever’ ????
