Laugh Die You: The Karaoke (SINGAPORE)


THE EPIC BATTLE OF LAUGHS COMES TO RESORTS WORLD SENTOSA!

That's right! Malaysia’s best-selling comedy hit “Laugh Die You – The Karaoke” is coming to Singapore on 9th and 10th July! Audiences can expect nothing less than three hours of brilliant comedy as the best of Malaysian and Singaporean stand-up comedians pit against each other.

Representing Malaysia in this epic comedy production is femme extraordinaire stand-up comic, Joanne Kam. Her acid-tongue humour will be challenged by Singapore’s effervescent Kumar, who needs no introduction for his irreverent, no-holds- barred comedic genius. 

With the two queens battling it out with all their comedic might of fierce Malaysia vs Singapore bashing jokes and insults, this verbal shootout will be moderated by the inimitable funnyman Gurmit Singh, who made Phua Chu Kang an iconic household name. Not only are the Singapore audience in for some side-splitting laughter, they will also witness the debut of Singh’s highly anticipated new alter ego: the turbaned, twisted- moustached and chest-haired Hero Singh. A law-abiding security guard who is eccentric, flamboyant and loud, it turns out that Hero Singh can also actually…wait for it…sing!

The Irony of War


Isn't it ironic that so many countries are against each other in a land that does not belong to them? Syria will be the start of World War III. Saddest part is we cannot prevent the inevitable...

Thank You

 
I would like to thank everyone that has purchased my book 'Ghost Files: Singapore'. It's been surreal since the first shipment of books arrived last month. I wasn't prepared for the books to be sold out in days! Thank you so much for making me feel like a king for a day.
 
We are trying our best to have the book at strategic locations around Singapore. So for starters, it's now available at EZ Tattoo (Far East Plaza #04-10), everyday from 12pm to 6pm.
 
I've begun drafting the second book which should hit shelves in late November. That's just in time for Christmas! It'll be a fun process and not like a mad dog rush like the first book.
 
Till the next post, thanks again and keep believing in yourself!

The Greedy Girls Cupcake Workshop!

With an invite from my neighbour Felicia, I attended the Greedy Girls cupcake workshop on the 17th of October at a cooking studio near my house. I figured it's about time I learn how to bake. Not just bake but make delicious cupcakes!

Did I learn to bake cupcakes? OF COURSE! Was it fun? VERY! Did it promote teamwork? YES YES YES! After a brief introduction by The Greedy Girls and everyone attending the workshop, we were divided into teams of three. Charissa, Sharan and I were put together and we called ourselves team 'INK'd'! I wonder why....

We learnt to make two cupcakes in this workshop. Carrot and Red Velvet cupcakes. They look yummy huh?

Before we made each cupcake from scratch, the lovely Sandra showed us how it's done!

Here's Sandra with her Red Velvet mix...

I have no idea what Charissa is doing but this is teamwork!

We're mixing it up!

Our carrot cupcakes before it's popped into the oven...

INK'd!

Ta-da! Our cupcakes without the cream cheese frosting!

And this is our Red Velvet cupcakes...



Meet Karen from The Greedy Girls!
I have no idea why she has frosting on her hand!
Best thing about making cupcakes? We get to eat them!

The Greedy Girls! That's my neighbour Felicia in the middle.

I've found a hidden talent. I'm now Noel the Froster!
Our cupcakes!!!

All of us got to bring back a box of cupcakes. There's one missing in my box because, well, I ate it!
Everyone that attended...

As you can see from the last photo, a good number of children attended the workshop. I must say this is a fantastic way for parents to spend quality time with their kids. So if you have children, you have to join the next workshop! And hey, it's awesome for couples too. To sign-up for the next workshop, please like their Facebook page for updates. Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/thgreedygirls/

Nike Back To The Future Shoes Exclusive Photos

If you are a fan of Back To The Future, you'll dig this! Over 30 years ago, Nike was asked to collaborate on one of the greatest franchise movies of all time. I credit Back To The Future for my mad imagination! I used to watch and imagine myself doing whatever Marty McFly did in the movie. From the hovering skateboards up to the power-laced Nike Mag shoes. Yup, I used to imagine my shoelaces tying it's own laces.

Well ladies and gentlemen, we don't have to imagine anymore. Today is the day Marty McFly and Doc Brown traveled to in Back to the Future 2 in 1989. When Marty traveled to the future in the sequel to October 21, 2015, to be precise - he was greeted by flying cars, self-tying sneakers and hovering skateboards. So the good folks at Nike delivered a gift to Michael J. Fox introducing the innovation to the shoe’s first, and most celebrated, wearer.

However the 2015 Nike Mag is a limited edition release. It will only be available via auction, with all proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. The specific details on the auctions will be posted to Nike News and via Twitter @Nike in spring 2016.

But you will be glad to know that Nike intends to release another Nike Mag model in 2016. I can't wait for it!

Yam's Kitchen Food Review

A week ago my friends and I dined at Yam's Kitchen along Upper Thomson Road. It's weird how we've never dined there considering it's in the neighbourhood we grew up in. So with all new places I dine at, I entered with zero expectations. Ok that's a lie. How can one have zero expectations when you're paying for a meal? That's just not possible. So let's just say I had expectations but it wasn't through the roof kinda high.

If you Google 'Yam's Kitchen', you'd realize they have two restaurants in Singapore and another in Thailand. One at Downtown East, the other here at Jalan Leban and the third at Chaiyapherk Road Nonthaburi in Thailand which is called Bavarian Field. Bavarian Field is primarily a steakhouse that also serves Chinese and Thai fusion dishes in a beautiful setting. I was blown away by photos of Bavarian Field! Have a look yourself by clicking here. I'm so heading there when I'm in Bangkok next!

Let's get down to the food at Yam's Kitchen. These guys are famous for their fish dishes and that's exactly what the bulk of our orders were...


Salted Egg Fish Skin. $6.80
Their signature Salted Egg Fish Skin is to die for, It's crispy, rich in flavour and goes amazingly well with beer. I'm absolutely in love with this dish.

Singapore: What happens when a loved one passes away at home?


What happens when a loved one passes away at home in Singapore? I doubt many would know what actually happens unless one has been through it. I for one had no clue what the procedures were till my father died last month. Here are the key points that occurred that unfortunate night...

1) When my father's breathing was decreasing on the 12th of September at approximately 8.30PM, I immediately called 995. I recall telling the operator what was happening in detail and within seconds my father stopped breathing for the last time.

2) Once the paramedics from SCDF arrived, they immediately used a device to detect my dad's pulse and heart rate. After multiple attempts, we were informed that my father had passed away. We were then told the police were informed and will arrive shortly.

3) While waiting for the police, I called Aloysius Hoeden from Divine Casket. It was decided beforehand that should anything happen to either of my parents, Aloysius would handle the arrangements. Aloysius told me over the phone that he will see me shortly.

4) A police patrol car arrived with two officers at approximately 9.20PM. They spoke to the paramedics, asked for our identification cards and informed us that an Investigation Officer has been assigned. We were advised to call a doctor so that we could get a 'cause of death' certificate. If we did not do so, a police hearse would have to take my father to a government mortuary for a postmortem. This would mean that my father's body would only be released the following day.

5) After failing to contact my neighbourhood doctor, I once again called Aloysius Hoeden from Divine Casket. He assisted by contacting a doctor that his company has used on many occasions.

6) An officer from the Forensics Department arrives at my house (approximately 10.30PM). This female officer took photos of the exterior of our house, my father's body and the medication he was on.

7) The doctor arrives (approximately 10.45PM)...He checks my father's body, asks us about my father's history, looks at my dad's records from the hospitals and fills up a form. Within fifteen minutes after his arrival, the doctor issues the 'cause of death' certificate and asks for his $150.00 payment. Yup, $150 for fifteen minutes of work!

8) Not long after the doctor leaves, the Investigation Officer arrives at our home (approximately 11.30PM). He too didn't take long to do his job and gives the go-ahead for my father's body to be released.

9) The undertakers gave us time alone to be with my father before they brought him back for embalming. 

10) Later in the night when we were preparing our house for the wake, I gave my good friend Jarett Mathew my father's details so he could see to my dad's insurance. Jarett is an amazing insurance broker so if you need his services, please call him at 8351 5330 or visit his website at this address:

The entire process from the moment my father passed away to my father's body being released took four hours or so. If it was not for Aloysius Hoeden from Divine Casket, the entire ordeal would have been incredibly difficult. For the most part, I was very emotional and the easiest of tasks were tough to comprehend. If you want to use Aloysius's services, do call him at +65 9220 0044 (24 hours).
