Endless Summer Pool Party at W Singapore Sentosa Cove

With the start of the New Year, we welcomed back the hot, sunny weather that all Singaporeans love to bask in. It was the perfect weather for the pool party hosted at W Singapore Sentosa Cove. Labeled the “Wet Gets Hot, An Endless Summer Edition”, it was the coolest pool party for the season.

Held on 11th January, the pool party was held at the WET pool deck, one of the largest resort pool areas in the country. We were greeted by sunshine and had a great time grooving to the beats lined up by DJ Patrick Oliver, DJ Shigeki and Stephen Day.

With a couple of drinks, the company of good friends and a great place to chill out at, it was a really therapeutic afternoon spent at W Singapore.

It was a relaxing day by the pool, as people took turns taking a dip in the water and having fun. You should totally see the scenery and experience that moment for yourself. What is a party without some selfies? Check out the photo here! ^^

Join us for our next monthly party at W Singapore! Be there or be square!

I Fine Thank You Love You Movie Review

Romantic comedy movie - “I FINE… THANK YOU… LOVE YOU” is one of the must watch film in this season. I love how the story being scripted and twisted from a usual fairytale. Indulge with their wonderful yet catchy humor in this movie, you going laugh out loud throughout the whole movie screening. I rate this “I FINE… THANK YOU… LOVE YOU” Movie; 4.5/5 star.

Woot! For those who have watched this movie, you will find this song very familiar. Yes! It used to be the song we learn during our childhood’s kindergarten and now, it has turned into the HIP version! ABC SONG ~! In tune with the new recent Thai popular ABC song, also known as the MAKEUP Dance Song. Check out the official music video here, let’s dance and sing along! ^^

I Fine Thank You Love You Movie Synopsis:
“Pleng” (Ice- Preechaya Pongthananikorn) is a charming and beautiful English tutor. Her ordinary life takes an unexpected turn when she is asked to help one of her students dump her Thai boyfriend named “Gym” (Sunny Suwanmethanont). Unfortunately, Gym doesn’t understand English so Pleng’s student records her voice message and asks Pleng to translate her message to him.

When Gym realizes that he is being dumped, he pins blame on Pleng for his girlfriend leaving him being that Pleng taught his girlfriend the English to pass her US job interview. It is at that moment Gym persuades Pleng to teach him English too, hoping to go to the US to reconcile with his girlfriend. Pleng has reservations but agrees.

Gym’s English is very basic and he’s such a slow learner. He works as a maintenance engineer at a factory. Pleng does her best to teach him. She lets Gym read children books to get started. Gym tries very hard and Pleng sees his effort and begins to sympathize with him.

At the same time, Pleng has fallen in love with another one of her students, “Pruek” (Two- Popetorn Sunthornyanakij), a handsome guy from a good family. He is a hopeless romantic who always find the way to surprise Pleng and eventually they become a couple.

Ramen Champion Tasting Competition 2015

Ramen have been a very popular Japanese food in Singapore. Ramen Champion Singapore was started in July 2011 which brings in reputable ramen brands to Singapore. The 2015 Ramen Champion Tasting Competition event was held at Bugis+ which was to celebrate Ramen Champion’s evolution since its inception in 2011.

Besides the first outlet at Bugis+, there are two other outlets of Ramen Champion. One at Changi Airport T3 and the other one at Great World City. There are a total of 6 Ramen brands which include a new brand, Tonkotsu Ikkyu joining in 2015.

The new brand Tonkotsu Ikkyu was created by Ramen chef and producer of Ramen Champion Singapore, Chef Koji Tashiro. He is known as “Son of Ramen God”. He is the disciple of “Ramen God” Kazuo Yamagishi, the legendary Ramen chef credited for inventing the wildly popular Tsukemen or dipping noodles.

The event started with a Japanese traditional drums performance. You can feel the energy and excitement of the drummers during this short but high energy performance. This is followed by a sweet Japanese lady compere together with the Chef Koji Tashiro, translating every words of what Chef says.

The panel of judges were a mixed group from our local Singapore top chefs, chief editor of BITES etc. In the tasting competition, we were given a voting card which we will be submitting at the end of the tasting competition.

There are six brands and each dish out one Ramen dish. Here are the Ramen.

(1) Ramen Brand : Menya Ryu, Ramen : Sapporo Miso Special Ramen. The original flavour come from the capital of Ramen in Japan, Sapporo, Hokkaido. A minimum of 7 hours spent for making the broth. The Chef, Melvin Yeo uses 3 kinds of Miso which is just like the traditional miso ramen of Sapporo. My Opinion : It has a rich, tasty and thick soup. The meat is tender. The half boiled egg is soft and juicy. This is definitely one of my favourite Ramen.

(2) Ramen Brand : Buta God, Ramen : God Ramen. Buta God specialises in port ramen. Chef Mamoru Kana create a perfect combination of the slightly sweet Tonkotsu broth with sliced marinated pork belly and proached egg. My Opinion : You can feel the softness and yet the tasty sliced pork belly. The soup was really nice. This is my favourite and I voted on this Ramen.

(3) Ramen Brand : Riki, Ramen : RIKI Chashumen. The brand was established in Tokyo. Very popular with men in Japan. It’s broth boiled for more than 8 hours, achieving a perfect milky-white broth. Riki means Energy Boost.  My Opinion : The soup is a bit saltish but it still tasty. The meat is well done. Still this is not my favourite ramen.

(4) Ramen Brand : Menban Yamagishi Kazuo, Ramen : Original Tsukemen This is the  legendary ramen chef, Kazuo Yamagishi who created this wildly popular Tsukemen, or dipping noodles. My Opinion : This is a ramen that is very different from the rest. The noodles are dipped into the soup for every mouthful of noodles. Quite interesting. In fact, it is quite nice. Should give it a try.

(5) Ramen Brand : Shodai Koji, Ramen : Triple Chashu Ramen. Chef Koji Takano is trained in Hokkaido, Yokohama, Tokyo, Australia and Singapore. He is the disciple of Chef Koji Tashiro.  The uniqueness of this dish is that you can enjoy three kinds of meats. It is based on Yokohama-style ramen. It combines the elements of new generation with the traditional ones. My Opinion : For a meat eater like me, I really appreciate this ramen with three different kind of meat. It seems rather generous with it’s ingredients.

(6) Ramen Brand : Tonkotsu Ikkyu, Ramen : Special Tonkotsu Ramen. The ramen is created by Chef Koji Tashiro, disciple of Ramen God Kazuo Yamagishi. Eric Tsang, a Hong Kong celebrity and producer of Ramen Champion Hong Kong have request the chef to create this Ramen. The topping of cha shu  which is pork collar is cooked in the western sous vide style and that the soup base comes in four vibrant colours and flavours. Finally, this ramen emerge as the grand winner. My Opinion : In my opinion, the soup is salty. I would prefer something less salty. Overall presentation is good. The meat is tender.

It is an experience to witness and be part of a Japanese culture of eating ramen in a competition. With more of such competitions, I believe the level of creativity and quality of ramen will greatly be improved.

智取威虎山: The Taking of Tiger Mountain Movie Review

The Taking of Tiger Mountain Movie Review:
Celebrate this New Year with Tsui Hark latest action blockbuster movie’s The Taking of Tiger Mountain (智取威虎山). This movie adapted from a famous Chinese novel “Tracks in the Snowy Forest”, a story set during the civil war era of 1946.

In the eye of Tsui Hark masterpiece, he had give audiences an eye-popping effect by capturing a series of stunt action and spectacular scenes complementing with 3D visual graphic to bring out the ‘war’ and ‘heart-warming’ scenario. The story flow of the movie was good and audiences will definitely hook up with excitement.

I love ‘The Taking of Tiger Mountain’ movie because I find it meaningful as it relates to intelligence and artillery. In this movie, you may also absorb some basic knowledge of war planning as well as military tactics skills. Thus, it is a must watch movie in JAN this year. I rate The Taking of Tiger Mountain movie 4/5 star.

The Taking of Tiger Mountain (智取威虎山) Movie Synopsis:
Adapted from the famous Chinese novel "Tracks in the Snowy Forest" set during the civil war era of 1946, when ruthless bandits occupied Northeastern China and threatened the lives of civilians there. The most powerful bandit of all was Mountain Eagle (Tony LEUNG Ka-fai), with an impenetrable fortress up in Tiger Mountain and armed with strong artillery. Unit 203 of the Liberation Army, led by SHAO (LIN Gengxin), was crossing the Northeastern region when they encountered Eagle's men raiding a village. SHAO decided to stay and fight against Eagle. Headquarters sent a skilled investigator YANG (ZHANG Hanyu), who infiltrated Eagle's gang as an undercover. The duo was soon engaged in a battle of wits with the cold-blooded Eagle, deep inside the snowy forest.
