McDonald’s Salted Egg Burger Review

The first salted egg yolk dish I ever tried was this salted egg chicken rice at a food stall at Far Eat Plaza some two years ago. Since then, the popularity of the salted egg yolk flavour has grown from strength to strength, displacing truffle as the trending ingredient in Singapore’s culinary scene. If I were to open my own cafe now, I’ll probably call it “Salted Egg Yolk” and proceed to douse every edible thing I can think of in that delicious yellow gravy.

Well, maybe that’s not a very wise move since food trends come and go. But if you’re an incumbent player in the market looking to spice things up a little, following the trend can’t go very wrong, right?

Game of Thrones: The Winds of Winter — A Fitting Finale

What a finale. The Winds of Winter was by far, if not the best, one of the best episodes of Game of Thrones ever. Instead of leaving us with a cliffhanger (is Jon Snow dead or alive?), the episode deftly tied up most of the loose ends and for once, provided more answers than questions. …

Grad Trip Planning: An Essential Guide

It’s been almost a year since I embarked on an 11-day graduation trip to Italy with a few friends. Planning for that trip took a few months of preparation, and from that experience I had a couple of takeaways that I thought you might find useful.

Dr Chee’s Redemption Tour: Will He Make It?

Dr Chee Soon Juan has come a long way. Once known as a man who ousted his mentor from the party the latter founded, who raised his voice in front of the then-Prime Minister during a walkabout and shouted “Where is our money?”, who staged hunger strikes and protests, he has mellowed considerably.

Uniqlo’s New Collection Is Rather Promising

It’s been seven years since the first Uniqlo store opened in Singapore. In that time, the number of staples in Uniqlo stores have steadily increased. I remember as late as 2012, Uniqlo didn’t even sell shorts!

Walk-Cycle-Ride: We Can Only Daydream

Over the past few weeks, you may have noticed the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) latest campaign banners near MRT stations, trying to bring across the message that walking, cycling and riding (the bus/ train) is a better option than taking a car. One particular banner that caught my attention depicts someone resting comfortably on a bus, with the tagline “someone else is driving, I can daydream”.

Cycling On Footpaths (Finally) Almost Legal

Since my family doesn’t own a car, when it comes to personal transport, the next best thing I have is my bicycle. When I was younger, I used to cycle to nearby places to run errands, or just to see how far my legs could take me.

Venice Travelogue: Italy’s Most Romantic City

I spent eleven days in Italy in early June last year as part of my graduation trip. Of the places I explored (Milan, Cinque Terre, Venice, Florence, Rome and the Vatican City), Venice was one of my favourites (the others being Cinque Terre and Vatican City) and was probably the most romantic of them all.

Challenger’s Funan Closure Sale: Not Worth the Trip

I’ve been frequenting Funan for the past few weeks, hoping to see if there would be any ‘fire sale’. The short answer? No. The camera shops are still operating as per normal and the atrium has a The Headphones Gallery fair as per usual, where you can find laptop and camera bags cheaper than usual. …

Batman v Superman: Still a Better Movie Than Deadpool

The first movie I watched in 2016 was Deadpool. Due to work commitments, it had been a while since I last watched a movie, so I was hoping it would be a great one. In the end, I left the theatre feeling the same way I did after watching Green Lantern–completely underwhelmed (Note to self: …
