#RememberingLKY

As the nation comes together to mourn for our late Mr. Lee Kwan Yew, we would like to encourage our readers to remember this great man. 

With his foresight and his team of political leaders (not to mention the fellow Singaporeans), Singapore rose from a third-world kampong village to a first-world global trade-hub within 50 years. No doubt that it is a good 91 years fully spent, I wouldn't even dare to think that I would achieve half of what he did within my lifetime. Implementing the HDB plans to house the nation, developing the transport systems and urban landscape, while maintaining the infrastructure for both greenery and recreation, and on top of that, with the power to affect 5-million lives, were not simple tasks. 

Understanding that Singaporeans have this stereotype that we love to complain (especially the rising cost of living and MRT breakdowns), we should take another viewpoint instead. Will you rather live in a third-world country, where people do not even have the basic necessities, such as a roof over their heads and food to fill their bellies? Learn to give thanks people. Ultimately, whether you are supportive of LKY or not, there's one thing for sure - the Singapore we have today will not be the same without him.


"I have spent my life, so much of it, building up this country. There's nothing more that I need to do. At the end of the day, what have I got? A successful Singapore. What have I given up? My life."

Thank you for your contribution, Mr. Lee. 
Your legacy will be passed onto many generations.

Recipe: Making the Perfect Rosti

Do you know that rosti is the national dish of Swiss? The reason is simple - rosti is amazing stuff. You can eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It's not exactly healthy, but it is delicious as hell, and super easy to make. If you are craving for Marche's rosti one fine day, tell you what, make it yourself.

Why leh? 

(1) A hell lot cheaper, and (2) a hell lot better. 2 reasons enough or not?

Supreme Pork Chop Rice (一品排骨饭) @ Beach Road, Singapore

Despite being constantly on the move, loyal customers never fail to track its location down within a short while. The reason is simple - reasonably-priced and good food. Moreover, it's location near the Bugis and City Hall area makes it a popular dining place for office workers. Recommendations from one of my dear friends led us here one weekday afternoon. Fortunately, it was not at all crowded at around 4pm. Besides the popular pork chop, this eatery specialises in fish fillets and other Taiwan-inspired dishes as well.

Griddy Gourmet Waffles @ Westgate, Singapore

Since Westgate opened its doors a few years ago, I have been frequenting Griddy Gourmet Waffles, a hidden gem specialising in waffles. Did you really think waffles are for desserts only? At Griddy, it's your standard Western cuisine. With a slight twist - just imagine having your burgers, with the burger buns replaced with savoury-sweet waffles. Ingenious.

Oh! For the wallet-conscious, their items are very, and really affordable. Most of their mains are priced around S$10 on average, plus you could add a few bucks to size up your meal with a drink and dessert waffle/chicken drumlets!
