Singapore-Malaysia version: Laugh out loud with Goodbye Mr. Loser (令伯特烦恼) Movie

2017-03-31T11:09:39.755+08:00

Given a chance travelling back to the past, what will you want to be again? Goodbye Mr. Loser, is a remake comedy film of the Chinese sleeper hit of the same title (夏洛特烦恼), directed by Malaysia Director Adrian Teh (郑建国) and lead cast by Ian Fang (方伟杰), Hoon Mei Sim (云镁鑫) and Anjoe Koh (许愫恩).It wasn’t an easy task to remake a movie especially when it was originally well-known in mainland China. Comparing the previous (夏洛特烦恼) and the current (令伯特烦恼), although the both story concept were the same but one thing had caught my attention was the actors acting expression and their humor chat in the movie. I would give director Adrian Teh a thumb up for picking the right casts to showcase in Goodbye Mr. Loser movie.Well, spending time watching the Goodbye Mr. Loser (令伯特烦恼) movie with friends will definitely give you a good laugh out loud in the theatre. For more, do look out for the Asia superstar (as a special guest appearance) in the movie. Overall, I like how this film is being re-produced with the fresh young faces, as well as the cinematography complement well with the Chinese-pop music too. I rate Goodbye Mr. Loser (令伯特烦恼) movie: 3.5/5 star.Goodbye Mr. Loser (令伯特烦恼) Movie Synopsis:Yi Bai, a middle-aged nobody with a lot of regrets attended the wedding of Xiao Wei, his high school crush. He got drunk and made a fool of his wife. Angry, she chased him with a knife, forcing Yi Bai to hide in the washroom.

Food Review: Classy and Contemporary Oriental Cuisine at VLV Restaurant

2017-03-29T19:20:39.997+08:00

With an array of dining options and watering holes, one must be spoilt for choices when spending an evening at Clarke Quay. Fortunately, new kid on the block VLV stands out among its many competitors with its multi-dining concept – the Restaurant, Club Lounge, and its al-fresco Courtyard by the riverside.Located at the two-story heritage building (formerly occupied by Indochine) right beside the central fountain square, it is difficult to miss its traditional yet contemporary architecture. VLV specializes in Chinese cuisine with Western influences - as you can immediately tell from its majestic and well-designed exterior. Upon entering the restaurant, dim warm lights coupled with stylish furnishing and ambient electro-pop music tops it all with a modern touch of class.We were invited to have a taste of their “Tasting Dinner Set” ($68++ per person) which comprises a few of their signature dishes such as the Kagoshima Kurobuta Char Siew and Crackling Pork Belly. This 8-course set serves in individual portions, dismissing the issue of shared or uneven portions.Each table is greeted with a “surprise” starter which changes daily, a gesture initiated by Chef Martin himself. Ours was the Charcoal Tou Fu (found in the vegetarian menu) served on a cute wooden spoon which made it easy to eat. The Tou Fu had good texture with a nice savory taste.The Trio Appetizer consists of Crackling Pork Belly, Kagoshima Kurobuta Char Siew, and Crab Meat Salsa with Charcoal Bread. The two pieces of pork belly are served with mustard and spicy miso sauce each. Do not be fooled by the tiny drip of the sauces as they explode with flavor once placed in your mouth. The meat is lean and the skin is crispy, just as its name suggests. The Kagoshima Kurobuta Char Siew is prepared with less sugar and made even healthier with the accompaniment of fermented black beans. Although sweet enough, the meat was too fatty for my liking which made it slightly challenging to chew on it. The Crab Meat Salsa had a nice blend of sweet and sour while the Charcoal Bread provides a crisp layer with buttery undertones.We were also fortunate enough to enjoy their signature Peking Duck ($55 for half, $110 for whole, not included in dinner set) served in two different ways. Firstly, the usual preparation of wrapping the duck skin with crispy beancurd skin - except that Truffle Foie Gras sauce is used alongside avocado slices which made the Chinese gourmet delicacy truly original to VLV. There is also the house made Goma Hoisin Sauce as a condiment to go along with. The duck skin was satisfyingly crispy in the wrap, although I was a tad disappointed that the Truffle Foie Gras sauce did not wow us as much.The remaining duck was served as Spicy Duck Cones, which did amuse us with its theatrical presentation (dry ice) that is totally Instagram-worthy. This unique creation is noteworthy with the nice combination of sweet, mildly spicy, savory, and crispy texture - perhaps more impressive for those who like the unconventional.Next up, we had the Poached Ocean Fish with Fresh Sichuan Peppercorn in Clear Soup. I almost forgot about the latter part of the dish due to its clear base when I took my first spoonful and nearly flinched when the pepper took effect instantly. For someone who does not really take spice, the soup was too pepper-ish for me. The fish however, was extremely fresh and almost melts upon chewing it. This dish would perhaps be most comforting when it is cold outside or when you are feeling under the weather. Plus, you will never have to worry about your soup turning cold.The Mint Lychee Sorbet brought a much needed respite right[...]

5D4N Taiwan Trip: Exploring the nostalgic Shifen Old Street (十分老街) and the scenic views at Shifen Waterfall (十份大瀑布)

2017-03-19T11:27:26.110+08:00

It’s time for me to update my Taipei Travelogue! Continue from my previous post, today I will be sharing my discovery in Shifen, New Taipei City (十分, 新台北市). On the same day itself, we drove from the Yangmingshan National Park (陽明山) to Pingxi District (平溪区) and it took us about an hour to reach our destination, Shifen Old Street.Welcome to Shifen Old Street (十分老街)!Shifen Old Street (十分老街) is one of the most popular tourist attraction places in New Taipei City, Taiwan. It is very accessible for visitors to travel via by train from Taipei Main Station or shuttle bus services from Jiufen (九份). Hence, one of the memorable experiences for tourists will be the Shifen railway track and the releasing of Chinese lantern (放天灯).For your info, the Shifen Old Street was originally built for transporting coal during the early Japanese days, whereby the station and track are connected straight through the village.It was my first time visiting the Shifen Old Street (十分老街), I am amazed by the warmth and lively atmosphere by their locals. The stalls lined along the Shifen Old Street were also a good place to hunt for some authentic Taiwan Xiaochi (小吃) snacks and the gift souvenirs. Likewise, this place is definitely Instagram-worthy for all visitors.Train is coming... Train is coming... the part where everyone need to make way for the train!What’s more? While walking along the Shifen railway track, at the same time I am able to see a real train passing through the Shifen Old Street and the experience was thrilling and cool. *PS: Something in Singapore that you can’t really experience unless train breakdown… lol*As a tourist, it is a MUST to release at least ONE Chinese lantern!!! We used the calligraphy brush dipped in black ink to write down our wishes on the paper lantern. No worry, 1 paper lantern just nice for 4 of us. If you have a big group, just buy more! More for more luck!A group photo before sending our wishes to the sky~!May our wishes come true this year!Delighted for the success of releasing the Chinese lantern Before leaving this place, you might want to take little steps toward the 十分静安桥 to view the marvelous scenery. If you are a photographer or nature landscape lover, be prepared to bring along your ultra-wide lens to capture the stunning sunset landscape.My outfit of the day photo at the 十分静安桥Stunning landscape, feel so peaceful with the refreshing air!Next, Shifen Waterfall (十分大瀑布)! We were welcomed by the golden sunset while making our way to visit the Shifen Waterfall which was located 20 minutes away from the Pingxi District.Suspension bridge which lead us to the Shifen Waterfall (十分大瀑布), do note that it closed at 5.30pm."We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us."Wefie with my Taiwanese friends at the 20 meter tall - Shifen Waterfall! It's spectacular! Gigantic Shifen Waterfall (十份大瀑布)The Shifen Waterfall is one of the most photogenic places in Taiwan. I enjoyed the satisfaction feeling when reaching the entrance of the Shifen Waterfall. It was amazing and I admired the breathtaking waterfall landscape. Honestly speaking, all the long distance walk including those up and down hill slope were definitely worth the adventure! Thank you my friends for the memorable and spectacular journey in Pingxi District, Taiwan. 十分[...]
