Entertainment at Wuerstelstand

Anton from Germany made it a point on his recent business trip to Singapore,to play at the last sausage kiosk before the equator.
Starting 2 years ago to play the "Steirische", Anton brings along his music instument whenever he can for practise and to please his audience.
Much to the delight of passers by,on a sunny afternoon in November 2011 he not only entertained Erich but also brought a lively atmosphare to the street market in Chinatown.

This was a very popular and funny TV show on Austrian TV in the sixties. It was about a sausage kiosk in Vienna where the owner was discussing all kind of daily issues (in a funny way) with his customers.
Erich seems to keep up the tradition in his Wuerstelstand, not in Vienna though with his segment what we call: ”Erich erklaert die Welt! (Erich explains the world)”.
A very young Otto Schenk played the sausage man in clips, which unfortunately are in German, to be politically correct, in Viennese slang.

Does anyone remember that series?

Fun and excitement on a Singapore Flyer ride!

Since February 14, 2008 the Singapore Flyer spins it’s giant wheel.

It is not only the world’s tallest ferries wheel but it also allows the most spectacular views over the Marina Bay Area all the way to Changi Airport, Sentosa Island and to the South many of the Indonesian Islands. No where else in the world your are able to experience this combination of city and nature views within a radius of about 45km (28 miles) depending on the .

If you can’t imagine the hight of 165 meters (542 ft) just think of a 42 story building.

You will be flying in one of the 28 capsules which are the size of a city bus and can carry 28 passengers each.

The Singapore Flyer rotates smoothly nonstop. To board the capsule you’ll use the “step on platform” and walk straight into it.
Your ride (one rotation) is about 32 minutes. 

It is really an amazing experience. But it doesn’t have to stop here. To make this ride an even better experience the guys from the Singapore Flyer have added some really fantastic variations to it which they call “The journey of Dreams”

You could enjoy The World’s First Full Butler Sky Dining (click the head lines for the links)

or as Erich and Helen did on Austria’s National Day, the
“1 for 1 Singapore Sling Flight” 

Don’t miss out on this ‘sweet’ deal. Purchase your tickets directly from any of the Singapore Flyer ticketing booths and enjoy that 1 for 1 promotion which ends December 31!

You can celebrate a birthday, propose or even get married on the Flyer or organize corporate events there.
Management and staff will be able to fulfill most of your desires.

More photos from Erich’s flight.

Come Christmas time you have to see Singapore’s tallest Christmas tree and the fantasy Toy-land with toy soldiers, teddy bears, gingerbread man, Christmas jingles, bubbles and fairy lights, built around the Flyer’s award winning rain forest.

   As you can see this ride is not just a ride or flight, this is a totally exciting and amazing experience you can enjoy with affordable prices.
Once you completed your flight it doesn’t have to stop here. Enjoy the many fun-filled activities around the Flyer terminal such as the Flight Experience, Kenko Reflexology & Fish Spa a relaxing experience. Or visit the retail shops and restaurants which round up your flyer experience.

1. Nov.2007



You survived  seven years which none of your neighbor stalls in Chinatown (except Stanley of course) thought you will. When you started out many of the shop owners there were belittleing your Wuerstelstand concept but you proofed them all wrong and most of the time you did better than they did during the ups and downs of SARS, H1N1, economic downturn and so on. And this caused  much jealousy once in a while. But you continued to your way and reinvented yourself a few times.
I want to wish you many more great years to come!
Your friend Frank N. Furter
