I owe my wife an honeymoon – Why not Australia?

As most of our friends know, my wife and I got married in December 2007.

We made plans to go to Australia five months later.

That plan never worked out as I found out my wife was expecting a month later.

As first time parents, wife was concerned about herself and our child she was carrying.

Hence, we didn’t go for any honeymoon.

As my wife isn’t working now as she is waiting to apply for PR in Singapore, it is harder for us to spend on luxuries as the current uncertain times meant that we cut back on luxuries.

Nuffnang recently launched the “Come Walkabout in Australia and have an Unforgettable Adventure!” where you have to blog about the type of experience you would like to have and share the great offers on with 10 friends and stand a chance to go ‘Walkabout in Australia’ for two!

The contest website can be found here.

The Nuffnang contest website eventually led me to is a website from the Tourism Australia.

My wife never been to Australia but I have been to Sydney twice.

The first trip to Sydney was a junket to a press event while the second trip was for business training.

Of course, being a romantic and this being a possible honeymoon, I choose Sydney and the Sydney City Romance cruise if I do win the contest.

Both my wife and I enjoy the sea and seaside very much and cruising down the Sydney Harbour for an evening dinner cruise would make it a romantic experience for the both of us, especially for my wife.

During the day, I could bring her down town and shop all the way to the Sydney Opera House which is a view that you have to be there in person to appreciate the view.

I might extend the stay and give my wife a homestay experience near Bondhi Beach.

The last time I was there, I stayed in the house of an old couple and they treated me to a breakfast experience that still lingers on in my memory today.

After breakfast, it would be an adventure to Bondi beach.

My wife and I enjoy the seaside very much and a walk down Bondi would be a very romantic one for us.

This is possibly a short post against other entries, but as a blogger, I would definitely blog about the experience.

Wait a minute, how about Anson? I guess if we do win the contest, we would have to bring him along as my mom wouldn’t be used yet to talking care of Anson and my wife would be a worry-wart through the trip.

Will Anson spoil the romance? I don’t think so as he will be enjoying the sights as much as we will. Anson is growing into a very curious boy looking around especially if he sees himself in a new place.

Wish us luck!

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…

Did She Run Or Did She "Just Fake It" For Adidas?

Andrea Chong, a Adidas appointed influencer, posted a photo of herself in the middle of the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2015 and captioned how she was "all smiles" during the run.

Unfortunately for Andrea or the PR agency, one of her readers checked her bib number #75148  at the Marathon's website only to find it to belonging to somebody else.

That somebody else is Kuvin Kuar, a intern at Edelman PR and the bib number had a status "DNF" or did not finished.

This raised the first red flag as one of the rules stated that "A Participants is strictly not allowed to transfer his or her race entry to another party".

This cascaded into perceptions that Andrea herself did not even start or complete the race and was only "planted" by Adidas or the PR agency, Edelman PR, to look pretty in the marathon.

Marketing Magazine noted that Adidas declined to comment about the incident which lead to further speculation that Andrea was possibly just …

Kudos To Huawei 2 Year Warranty For P9 Series

When it comes to smartphones, I think I am jinxed.

For my history of owning smartphones, every time it comes close to the end of the two year contract with my mobile service provider. This time round, it happened to my Huawei P9.

All of a sudden, the LCD screen sort of decolourised. I thought it was a temporary issue but the decolourisation lasted for a few hours. Then the nightmare began.

The touchscreen couldn't be touched. This made it the smartphone a brick.

I thought the Huawei P9 only had one year of warrant. With my contract ending in mid-year, I thought I would have to wait it out till the contract ended and allowed me to buy a new phone under a contract.

Luckily, a friend reminded me that the phone came with a 2 year warranty.

So I decided to go to the Huawei service center, right smack in the center of the city, to see if my phone is under warranty and if Huawei would honour their 2 year warranty.

Thankfully, Huawei isn't as popular as the Samsungs or Apples, and the …
