What we're clicking on this week (when we're not catching waves).

I love this interactive look at the locals who live in this row of shophouses in Singapore. – Becky, editorial assistant

The New York Times Op-Ed columnist (and Fathom husband) Ben Schott reeled us in — hook, line, and sinker — with this list of 1920s beach lingo. The illustrations, by Eleanor Davis, are the cat's meow. – Jeralyn, editorial director

On my next trip I'll be referencing Eat This Poem's literary city guides designed for bookworms who love food. – Berit, assistant editor

Ever wonder what it would be like to pick up and move to Sweden? Greg Poehler (brother of Amy Poehler) has a funny new comedy recounting his expereince as a US transplant. Watch here. – Berit, assistant editor

I grew up learning British English, which makes for funny lost-in-pronounciation moments with my American friends. (How do you say aluminium?) On a more literary note, Damien Fowler considers the differences between American an English writing. – Becky, editorial assistant
