Thank you MEN.
would anyone know the following:
if I would like to take a george foreman to make a few dinners there will I need a special GF for it (220v) or I can take an American 110v  :-\ there and it will work?

Men did you get kosher food on your recent visit, for they uped the prices drastically to $80 main dish $25, $20 side dishes thats $200 a meal! ::)  any comments on that??

Last Q: I am flying from NYC to SIN staying there for 24 hours then continuing the journey to MEL, would you suggest that I can take frozen Vpacked meat in the freezer packs (Polar Bear Coolers 24 Pack Soft Cooler) and put under the plane then letting it sit in SIN for 24 Hours, and putting it again under the plain for another flight, in total it will be out for a whopping 47 hours  :o (in polar things)
maybe I can put dry ice in there? please all comments are appreciated!  ;D

Awesome. Though it'd cost 180k AA RT in F and I'm not even sure off the top of my head if AA will route you to Middle East via Asia on one award. Even if they would, I'd much prefer EY.

I don't think it's allowed.

110 will not work, it will be to much volt like israel. BUy a transformer or a 220v grill.

If you are staying in Singapore in a hotel, then freeze it up again over there. Be careful with dry ice:

Checked Baggage
The TSA has some guidelines/restrictions for how the dry ice must be stored.

All dry ice must be placed in packaging that allows the release of carbon dioxide gas.  As dry ice sublimates, it will turn in to carbon dioxide gas.  If the carbon dioxide gas cannot escape the packaging, then the package may explode.
You are limited to 5 pounds of dry ice per checked baggage.
Every package of dry ice must be marked “CARBON DIOXIDE SOLID” or “DRY ICE”.
Every package of dry ice must also be marked with the net weight of the dry ice or an indication that the dry ice is 5 pounds or less.
