Join the in crowd at the Cafe. It's been quite a week in The TransitCafe.

In the SHY Interview, Miguel Ko, president of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia/Pacific, reveals that the thing which irks him most about travel is "travelling to the US and being treated by the airport security, immigration

Cyber sluts have a laugh

In Rant And Rant, we ask, "What's the one website in the world that you just can't get enough of?" Cyber Slut loves jokebox.com ("there's a joke for every occasion") while The Scribe goes for theonion.com. George W Bush jokes seem to pop up everywhere in the Café this week. Try this one:

Donald Rumsfeld is briefing President Bush: "Yesterday, three Brazilian soldiers were killed."
 "Oh no!" exclaims the President, "that's terrible!" His staff is stunned at this unprecedented display of emotion, watching as Bush sits, head in hands. Finally, he looks up and asks, "How many is a brazillion?"

And Alexander Melchers, of Melchers-Singapore, which built the Carlsberg Sky Tower on Sentosa and is also developing the Singapore Flyer, explains where he has found paradise.
