In the early June, a cooking challange was issued to Chef Ramsay by SingTel and a group of well known food bloggers in Singapore.

How did all this happen?
Is actually the result of debates among Singapore food bloggers whether or not if Singapore hawkers are Michelin-worthy?

N95 Masks market price and other things you should know

Busy scrambling around Singapore looking for a cheap respirator mask?

Anyway there are a few points Mr Durian expect you to know before getting your self-defense mask.

Hazy Crazy Burning and The Mask. Smokin

For the past few days this tiny island, I am living on, has been enveloped by thick choking smoke.

Due to illegal forest burning on Indonesia’s Sumatra island, Singapore is now covered with haze.
This is not the first time Singapore got hit by the particulate air.  Earlier this noon the highest PSI (Pollutant Standards Index) record of 266 in 1997 was broken.  I cant believe it.. Singapore's PSI hits 401!

Casual Card Game Saboteur Fun

Saboteur? Sabotage?

Mr Durian writing a card game review? Are you serious? YES! We played this game throughout the night of my birthday haha and we had great fun!

Yeah. I seldom play games but that doesn't mean I don't play them.. Most games bore me after a while..

But if you are looking for a good casual card game for a group of people, I strongly suggest you getting Saboteur. I got mine from Amazon.
Anyway, this game has been out for quite a while and I have been playing it ever since. Is arguably one of the top rated casual game. Even as a non-gamer, I enjoyed playing this card game very much.

This game revolves around a crew of gold-digging dwarves and the saboteurs.
The good dwarves win when the gold is found . Meanwhile the saboteurs will sabotage the good dwarves from getting to their gold.

Hot and Steamy Pork Ribs with Soybean Paste

It's Time for another Mr Durian's cooking show.
Today we will be learning how to cook the Steamed Spicy Pork Ribs with Fermented Soybean Paste.
This is one of my "comfort food".. Basically, I can eat this everyday and never get tired of it.

The feelings I have for this dish is like how Taiwanese would crave for their (卤肉饭 lu rou fan) braised pork rice.
Sitting on top of the white steamy rice is the rich flavourful spicy cooked meat, covered by a layer of glistening oil. Mmm...The smell - The soybean paste gravy - The umami flavour!
I am already starting to salivate.

Hiring a SEO Firm to write your blog?

Going to hire a SEO company to rank your blog?
Whether you are building your own personal blog or corporate blog.
Believe me is much more effective to rank your own blog then to hire someone else to write it for you. Take a look around and you'll notice that most successful bloggers write their own blogs.
No one knows about you (your company) better than yourself.
