It has been awhile since this blog was updated.

Reason number one: the birth of my son, Anson Koh.

Reason number 2: coping with the KL office.

It is no surprise that this Social PR father bought his new born son into the social networking stage.

Anson has a Gmail account which I have invited all family members, relatives and friends to leave him an email so he can read them when he grows up.

Anson also has a Facebook account set up which friends of my wife and I can check out updates on the little boy.

How can this web2.0 father forget the blog! Check out Anson’s blog at

The blog is filled with photos and little comments to make it interesting.

Thank goodness for digital photography as I have take quite a number of photographs of Anson. And thanks to Web2.0, I made us of the features of and Picassa 3.0 beta to give it a little bit of jazz.

Digital photography has not killed the good old fashion photograph shops either. Now I am printing about 100+ photos was a single 2G SD card as opposed to 30 years ago when one roll of film was limited to only 12 to 24 shots.

The advantage of Web2.0 now is that I can share news of the family to relatives who are far and wide, especially those down under.

In a strange way, Anson has brought the relatives closer though they are continents apart.

PS: I never liked the blogspot content entry system and I am using Windows Live Writer for this and future entry. Maybe I should do a review of this new writer, built for blogging, soon.

Also, I have given this blog a fresher theme. Hope you like it.

Why is Ramly Burger banned in Singapore?

Yahoo Singapore ran an article of the Ramly Burger by highlighting that it is ban in Singapore.

Yet, the writer from Makansutra failed to address the most important issue of why the Ramly meat patty is banned in Singapore.

A search online easily did highlight that the famous Malaysian meat patty is banned by the AVA but didn't go into details.

Wrote Arlina Arshad for The Straits Times in January 2004,

"But the importing of beef and beef products from Malaysia is not permitted, said theAgri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA).

Selling and supplying them without a permit is also an offence, and offenders can befined as much as $50,000 or jailed two years, or both, said the AVA."

In May of the same year, another article highlighted that a man was even charged in court for "smuggling" the Ramly burger in 2004.

"The AVA said that meat products processed in Malaysian food factories which it had notapproved were banned here.Suzali was yesterday jailed for four month…

Those Who Gamble Online Have Poorest Control - NCG Survey In 2012

Singapore will soon exempt local operators, Singapore Pools and Turf Club, from online gambling ban and the sites will be ready in November 2016.

Ministry of Home Affairs explained that a complete ban on remote gambling drives demand and activities underground, and may create larger incentives for criminal syndicates to target Singapore."

Yet in a 2012 survey by the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCG) found that those who gamble online have the poorest control.

For those who indulged in online gambling, 30.4% said they gambled for a longer period than they planned to, 33.3% gambled with more money than they planned and 29.2% gambled more frequently they planned to. 
Will launching the online gambling sites be like opening a Pandora Box that will create more issues in the future?

A Very Small Chicken Or An Oversized Popcorn Chicken?

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Singapore Facebook Page recently received a complaint of the size of the chicken being served at KFC.

Barnabas Ng took a photo of his chicken from KFC which showed it to be almost the size of the KFC small container. It also looked like a an oversize popcorn chicken.

Wrote Barnabas,

"Hi KFC, is this your new standard size for a chicken? I order 3 piece meal and 2 pieces including this so called original recipe chicken is smaller than the size of the cap of ur small mash potato.

Have you guys try to cut cost so much that you are offering half a size chicken pieces for a full price meal? It is just getting from bad to worse"

KFC Singapore did reply to Barnabas for him to PM his mobile number but Barnabas has yet to receive any calls from KFC Singapore, as of this posting.

Maybe chickens are also shrinking with the current climate change?
