    Bukit Batok has a new tourist attraction: Gardens by the Rats. That may explain why these people have gathered to watch 22 men try to catch them all. The infestation was blamed on residents feeding the stray dogs which apparently led to the rats coming out to eat the leftovers. If this were an opposition ward, the authorities would probably blame the town council. People feed stray dogs in other estates all the time, why rats don't come out like this leh? My youngest daughter, when she saw the Bukit Batok rats in the news video, went "Awwwww!" I blame Disney. Maybe they can throw a tent…

    The response to the most useless taxi app in the world, made by the Land Transport Authority, was swift. The app lets you see the cabs in your vicinity, but cannot be used to book any of them. The app is named Taxi-Taxi@SG, and the tagline is, without any self-irony, "Taxi Taxi, where are you?"

In Singapore, I do stop my car at the road, leave the car and engine running, walk out and buy my food. If anyone wants to steal it, it takes just one step and one second: get in and drive off. In Singapore, when I’m tired in school, I do leave my handphone and wallet around me and drop my head on the table for a nap. You just need to walk past me and you’ll own my handphone and wallet. Think about it: Why am I so daring? Well, not really. When I’m in…

As long as an article, photo, video, GIF, or what-have-you pops out in some way, it automatically gets slapped with the A-word. Whether that awesome “something” will be forgotten after a few days, or even a few minutes, doesn’t matter – because that’s just how the Internet works. Then again, being awesome on the Internet doesn’t mean relegating yourself to "flash-in-the-pan" status. With 2015 just around the corner, maybe it’s about time you take…

    These tasty Prawn Balls were cooked up at our Bali villa, by my friend Karen. A chef from Ireland, she works behind-the-scenes on various cooking shows – helping to create the beautiful dishes we see on tv. We set up this little make-shift kitchen, just so that Karen could share her recipe with you all! They’re a breeze to make and impress on the table. Pair it with a simple dip and you’ll have a party appetizer that they’ll be begging you for the recipe! The idea is to blend your prawns together with all the flavourings – the fresh herbs, the…

  • Japanese Eyelash Extensions at KJ Studio Review

    17 Dec 2014 | 2:23 am
    Falsies are soooo mafan (troublesome). You have to apply glue, wait for it to dry a bit, place them gingerly on your eyelids and at night you have to remove them gingerly. When I heard about these eyelash extensions and just how easy and convenient they were, I decided to give them a try. Looked up various eyelash extension places online and decided to trust my eyelashes (and eyes!) with KJ Studio, and my beautician was Jeane.What are eyelash extensions?Jeane was really nice and patient to explain the whole concept of eyelash extensions to me. Eyelash extensions are applied lash by lash on…
  • Coffee Bean Beanstro Christmas menu and pretty logcakes

    12 Dec 2014 | 7:20 pm
    One of the most famous Christmas songs is "All I want for Christmas is you" sung by the (then) angellic voice of Mariah Carey, and is a song that is completely overplayed in shopping malls. Not all of us can be so lucky to have our desired person as a christmas gift, so we have to comfort ourselves with other, material things - like cake.Have you gone down to Orchard to look at the lights yet? Now all we need is some snow, but too bad we have to settle with rain lah. To bring up the Christmas spirit in you, the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf have a new menu and some Christmas sets for you to…
  • What happened to my lost android phone... 1 year later

    11 Dec 2014 | 2:41 am
    How many of you have never lost your phones??? Really? Okay how about leaving it in the toilet or table somewhere THEN rushing back and finding it still in the same place? Less people now?Well, I always thought I was the careful type (losing umbrellas is a whole different category - I think I've lost more than 5 in my lifetime) but one fine day, I lost my Samsung S3. You can read my initial story here.I was at Beerfest Asia til like 1am ish and I still remember I was a little woozy after the beers. My battery was running low from that day's activities (think 10%?) and I was sitting on a bench…
  • Indulge at Park, Grand Park City Hall Hotel lunch buffet Review

    30 Nov 2014 | 6:43 am
    As we approach everybody's favourite month (admit it, you love getting gifts or snapping up discounted items, or maybe it's just the Christmas songs in the air), it's time to let loose and reward yourself for all the hard work you've done during the year. You deserve it. Think about how much you've achieved over the past months, how you've grown and learnt from mistakes... doesn't that make you feel better about yourself? There was a birthday celebration on the day I went, so the area outside was blocked off. A nice place to hold a meal event with family and friends!Likewise, I…
  • PAUL 's Singapore review and new menu items

    19 Nov 2014 | 7:39 am
    I still remember the news spreading like wildfire - the famed French boulangerie, PAUL was coming to Singapore and opening their first outlet at Takashimaya. Tai tai's and hipsters both queued for HOURS just to score a table at the hottest new joint in town.Needless to say, I was one of those crazy people (neither Tai tai nor hipster) waiting in line, and boy was it worth it! PAUL 's greatest draw has got to be their pastries, their specialty French breads that are just simply delicious. Feed this to a kid who hates having bread for breakfast and they'll be a converted fan lol.Not many know…
