Change is inevitable. Resistance is futile. The other day my girlfriend and I headed to our sick noodle place. Yes one of us was under the weather. But to our surprise the stall was gone. Our sick noodle was no more. I still have no idea where she went. Maybe she just moved to a [...]

Let the Judging Begin

Fu Yu Kopi Shop - Tomato Kueh Tiaw

Last weekend I was given the honour of judging a culinary competition at a local mall. Thank you to the organizers (you know who you are) for this chance. I’ve never judged a cooking contest before and even though this wasn’t Iron Chef, I enjoyed it tremendously. I was given a few sheets of paper, [...]


Passion

“Do it no matter what. If you believe in it, it is something very honorable.
If somebody around you or your family does not understand it, then that’s their problem.
But if you do have a passion, an honest passion, just do it.” – Mario Andretti


Animal Farm

Animal Farm is a novella written by George Orwell, first published in 1945. Yes the same George Orwell that wrote 1984 in 1949. The exact same person that gave us the concept of ‘Big Brother’. You could blame him for all the reality TV shows we have to suffer through. Yes folks! George Orwell is [...]

So the Webb Ellis Trophy belongs to New Zealand for the next four years. Congratulations. At least England didn’t win it and the cup stays in the southern hemisphere. I must say that France did play well and could have nicked it but it wasn’t to be. I’m pretty sure a lot of All Blacks [...]

I am at an age where most of my friends are either parents or are soon to be. Kids are cute. The way they play. The way they talk. The way they laugh. They grow up right in front of your eyes.  I guess these are the joys of parenthood. Don’t get the wrong idea, [...]

If you haven’t watched Namewee’s movie Nasi Lemak 2.0, go and watch it, preferably in a cinema and not at home via a pirated cd. But who am I kidding, I am sure most of us would just download it from BT. Seriously though, support our movie industry especially when it produces something that has [...]
