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…

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?
