Goodbye Battlestar Galactica?


While Universal Studios Singapore (USS) has not released an official statement regarding the future of it's star ride Battlestar Galactica, it is safe to assume the theme park will bid it farewell. The ride has been closed since 21st July 2013 and from what I understand, no upgrading or repair work has been done. 

USS however released this short statement to the media. "Battlestar Galactica is unavailable as it undergoes an attraction review". If one reads between the lines, this means USS is looking to replace this 90 seconds hair raising ride with something new.

I heard from a source that the new ride will be ready by the end of the year. Since they obviously can't freeze time, it is impossible to demolish and build a replacement that quick, Battlestar Galactica will undergo a refurbishment. A new name, perhaps new decor and a fresh coat of paint. That's the best they can do in a short amount of time. 

I am looking forward to the new ride. Maybe it be more marketable to the masses!

Hilarious video of a man getting rid of bad luck in Africa!


In this video, you'll witness how a tribe in Africa gets rid of bad luck. While it looks rather painful, it is hilarious! I hope this ritual worked for him.

Mr Prata Evans Road Review

I can survive on Indian food 365 days a year. I love the brilliant combination of spices and the rich aroma that each dish eludes. My search for great tasting mee goreng led me to Mr Prata along Evans Road.

I love the chilled out ambience at this eatery. Singaporeans from all walks of life patron Mr Prata throughout the day. Yes they are opened 24 hours! You'll see taxi drivers sipping their kopi, cyclists having a quick meal and families spending quality time together. Although you'll likely see most of them on their mobile phones at some point or another. Tsk tsk! Well at least they are sitting together having a meal.

When I say the menu selection at Mr Prata is huge, I am not exaggerating! Not only do they have all sorts of prata, mee and rich dishes, they have western food too. We're talking steaks, wraps, burgers and even pizzas. They even have a good selection of Thai Muslim food as well. Very impressive I must say.



The mee goreng was spot on! It had the right balance of tomato sauce and soy sauce topped with a generous amount of diced mutton. I rate their mee goreng 7/10.


I can't stop at just one dish. Noel Boyd eats in BULK! This is the French Ice Cream Prata. What's that? It's prata with banana filling topped with chocolate, ice cream and sprinkles. If you have a sweet tooth, you'll like this! I'm sure children will like this too! Bananas and ice cream!!!

You have no idea how much I love chicken wings! It doesn't matter where I am. As long as I see chicken wings on the menu, I have to order it. Same thing happened at Mr Prata.


While I didn't like the fries, it tasted cheap, the chicken wings were decent. The batter gave the wings a good crunch and it was pleasantly tasty. If I could give one recommendation to Mr Prata, it's to marinate the wings for a longer period. I want and need to taste the marinate on the flesh and not just the skin.

There you have it. Another honest quality food review on my blog. More to come in due time. 

Mr Prata is located at 26 Evans Road, Singapore 259367. Visit their website at www.mr-prata.com.

China you need to Ssssh!

While I know this post will receive backlash from some quarters, I do have an opinion and this is my blog. Faithful readers know that I have always been honest with my opinions. This post is none the different. I love Malaysia and it's people but rest assured that this post isn't biased.

I can understand why the families of passengers from China are upset. They have lost their loved ones and they need answers. The rest of the world is waiting for answers as well but I understand they need these answers more than us. Not just them but the other families from around the world too.

What I don't understand is the protest that was allowed in overly strict China. Did the Chinese government allow this protest because they can bully a smaller country? I do not understand why throwing chairs and objetcs at a civilized press conference was allowed. I do not understand why Chinese celebrities such as Zhang Ziyi and Chen Kun have slammed the Malaysian government when they as celebrities should be appealing for calm.

Looking for MH370 isn't as easy as looking for an object outside your window. Hundreds if not thousands of satellite images are analyzed every day. This is a time consuming effort. The countries that own these satellites have to safeguard their national interest mind you. Once these images are analyzed and approved, it is sent to Malaysia where it is once again analyzed by their team of investigators. After which it is sent to Australia where the process is repeated yet again.

I know the Malaysian authorities are doing their utmost best. This has been a mammoth of a task which they have passed with flying colors thus far. Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein has done a tremendous job! He is intelligent, speaks well, has amazing composure and he delivers at each press conference. Future Prime Minister of Malaysia in my humble opinion.

Anyone who thinks Malaysia should immediately pass on whatever information they have on hand is foolish. Information needs to be scrutinized and dissected before it can be deemed valid. If they do not follow this protocol, a lot of inaccurate information will be released. Malaysia is clearly taking the safe approach here. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. If anything, this shows you that the present government is an intelligent government.

And hey, this is an ongoing investigation. Of course there will be classified information or rather, 'sealed evidence'. There will always be information which can't be revealed to the public till the investigation is concluded. Common sense would have told you this. We read about crimes and accidents everyday and most of the time we get the same mundane answers from investigators.

Lastly, we have not seen the American, Australian, Canadian, Dutch, French, Indian, Indonesian, Iranian, Kiwi, Malaysian, Russian, Taiwanese and Ukrainian families behave like hooligans in their time of grief. They too need answers for a little closure.

China I know you're hurting and you want answers. You will get them in due time. For the time being, stop acting like a child, do not be a bully and Sssssssssh!
