Protect yourself from Zika Virus ( and other Mozzies related diseases)


Over the weekend , news of Zika Virus spreading in Singapore cause a stir in this tiny red dot. The last count was a staggering 41 confirm infection over 2 days. Given that dengue numbers averages 200-600 per week, this number would only increase on a daily basis.

Compared to the dreaded annual haze which we had experienced on Friday, this is a potentially scarier situation. It is well documented that Zika Virus pose a threat to pregnant women as there is a risk of transmission to the unborn babies, resulting in babies born with abnormally small head ( a disease known as microcephaly)

The Stranger in the Car



The Wacky Duo
It started off like any other day .

Except today we picked a hitchhiker in Singapore. A rare phenomenon in this little red dot.

We were driving out for another outing of the day . The moment we turn out of the estate , an elderly woman stood in the middle of the road and stopped the car on the spot. Seeing that we were immobile , we rolled down the window to talk to her . She stepped forward , headed to the passenger window and asked for a ride .

When the invitation came to review Thye Moh Chan Mooncakes, it was taken with a sense of nostalgia. Thye Moh Chan was my late Father-in-law favourite restaurant in Chinatown Point. The iconic Teochew confectionery is famous for their traditional Tau Sar Piah.

Tips for buying from Kickstarter





Kickstarter is the world's largest for creative projects. You can find innovative projects at a decent price there.

However, I was a sceptic. I had heard stories that projects from Kickstarter would never come to fruition. However the more I explore Kickstarter , the more items caught my eye.

Happy Birthday Singapore




This year National Day will be a little muted for us. Compared to previous years, there was no fireworks chasing, no parade previews , no actual day celebration on Marina Bay Float. After the inclusive SG50 celebrations that we can enjoy even without a ticket, this year NDP seemed to be localised at the National Stadium.
