The MacBook Air is exactly as I have expected it to be. After so much media attention on the new gadget, tons of detailed reviews on the Internet,…

Bak Kwa Not Up to Standard

It seems this CNY season, all the Bak Kwa standard have fallen below expectations. Even from “normally OK” brands like Bee Cheng Hiang… hmm, they don’t make the cut. I don’t know, but I suppose they are employing temporary inexperienced staff to do the BBQ’ing? Or are they substituting their usual stock with inferior quality pork? Ok, must remember to…
