Caught this Kraken of a burger at Tanglin Mall. Cosy environment & friendly service refilled continuously with smiles, the burger is conjured from Spicy, Cajun-style grilled chicken breast with jalapeño Jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle and ancho-chile ranch dressing, topped with crispy onion strings. Routinely served at Chili's restaurant, hunters proceed with extreme appetite =)

Chung Cheng Prawn Mee #01-59: prawn noodles with pork ribs for $4 (right). Ab Balling Peanut Soup #01-75: dumpling with sesame seeds & peanut fillings, served in almond essence (left). Both can be found at the food stalls of Golden Mile Complex.

I love the Thai food here; it is delicious and value-for-money.

They have all the common Thai favorites on the menu. The Tom Yam Soup is pretty good, uniquely served in a small claypot. Both the Phat Thai (fried rice noodles) and pineapple rice are delicious too.


Another of my favourite dish is the Thai Crispy Mango Chicken, which goes for $5.80 => fried chicken cutlets with tangy chilli gravy and yummy mango slices on top. Lastly, don’t forget to order their Thai ice red milk tea~


You can get a decent and tasty Thai meal for less than $10 per person! That is, if you manage to get a seat early enough to wait for them to cook your food, which is all cooked on the spot so it’s fresh and steaming when it hits your table. During lunch hours, do call in advance to reserve your table, and even order your food if you know the menu.

It’s a definite must try for all Thai food lovers! What’s more, Tom’s Palette is just next door, so you can hop to the next shop to get your home made ice cream after a hearty meal.

“It’s over. It’s okay. Just another day in FailureVille. Move along now; nothing to see right here…”

History repeats itself, & at the rate it’s going, I’m sure some other things will get repeated as well 😦 I guess the politically-correct approach to handle this delicate matter is to just tell everybody what they wanna hear…

Anyway, caught Iron Man. Finally. I will catch it again, due to 2 unrelated incidents, which I’ll elaborate further. But first things’ first:

The show is SUPERB. Period. RDJr is fantastic as Tony Stark (as Heath Ledger will be, when he plays the Joker and Aaron Eckhart as Two-Face, both characters in the Dark Knight). As an “origins/beginning” story, no problem at all, even for non-comic fans, as a gadgetry/techno-geek fanfare, what with all the suit-design, missiles, weapons, cars, etc, scored with flying colors. I can assure you: Tony Stark’s workshop is an engineer’s/architect’s wet dream, with the ergo-virtual keyboard, minority report-like screens, virtual 3D-projections you can physically interact with, an artificially-sentient(note: it’s beyond artificially intelligent) robotic housekeeper that can rebuke the owner, full-length patio windows made outta LCD screens, which can alter their opacity, everything’s there. Oh yah, Gwyneth Paltrow and the F-22 Raptors(real ones were loaned for this film) too.

And characters? Well, in a nutshell it manages to fit a weapons manufacturer development into a high-tech-equipped humanitarian within 2 hrs, yup, it’s all green here too.  The director, Jon Favreau, and of course, Stan Lee’s cameos were a hoot. Not to mention Samuel L Jackson as Nick Fury. Colonel Nick Fury, sorry Sir! Hint hint Wink* wink*

But but, while watching the 9.40pm slot at Golden Village Jurong Point, there was a 15min disruption that started at the 45min mark of the show, where a bunch of perplexed audience were treated to this:

And after which the film continued with audio but NO video for another 5mins, and when everything finally came together again, the reel was not rewound to the lost portion. After which, distinctive hammering noises were heard originating from behind the cinema screen (who does construction work at 10pm in the night? I can assure you it’s NOT Iron Man). Because of this disruption, I missed the midnight bus and had to cab home. Is this the kind of service that justifies a ticket price hike?

Oh yah, bought a cheap 8GB thumbdrive recently. It’s not terribly fast: I manually timed it to discover a WRITE of 2.92GB took 12m33s, which translate to 3.8MB/sec. But still $40 for 8GB of redundant traffic, what the heck…

I’m a fan of the Ball Firemen series. Heard that the white one above was going for SGD$850(for leather strap variant). But that was before the collective price raise(Ball watch) in Apr. Damn…so close to getting a Ball watch. Doesn’t it look classic?

P.S. Actually I’m a fan of their Cannonball series too, but that fan-club’s a tad too expensive to be in.

Edit: dug out some sharp photos of 2 Cannonballs!

It has been observed that many export Gen1(the one with the smaller screen) EEE PC will be flooding the forum marketplaces very soon, as rumors has it the local batch are incoming. Furthermore, Gen2(8.9″ screen-sized) versions are mentioned to arrive 3rd quarter this year. Prospectors looking for good deals, you know when to place your orders…;-)

Note: the one featured in the photo is NOT the newer, 8.9″ screen version…
