Hello and rhubarb!

I would wait and plant in the early spring.  They won't establish well in hot dry weather.

You could sow some Pak choi now - they germinate and grow quickly and you'll get a harvest of young leaves  in about 30 days, and it should be developing hearts some 15 days later.  It's hardier than it looks and will continue to give you a crop into late autumn. 

I've just sown another couple of rows of Swiss chard - I'll be picking that in mild spells through the winter and well into the spring.

Don't think you've any cause to beat yourself up over not double-digging Mr Toast - I think what you've done so far has been quite remarkable - give yourself a pat on the back and a pint or three

Gardeners hands! Best cream?

The best hand cream I've ever used was the lanolin-based udder cream I used to apply to the udders of my herd of dairy goats - it kept them, and my hands, silky smooth

But many of the plants we keep as exotic houseplants in the UK are quite common plants in warmer climates - I think you said you're in Singapore?

how to get rid of wasp nest?

Yes, I've chewed honeycomb - we used to spread honey including some of the comb onto toast for tea 

No they won't come back - you can take the comb out now and get back to composting 

Please ID this plant

Thanks Bob 

No, I've not seen that before.  I've just been through one of my houseplant books and can't find it there either
