You Can Get $150 Off 256GB 10.5-Inch iPad Pro Right Now While Stocks Last

By | December 13th, 2018

While all of the fuss right now is about the 2018 iPad Pro refresh, it’s important to remember that there is still a very capable iPad Pro left over from the previous generation.

The 10.5-inch iPad Pro is still a thing, and it’s a little bit cheaper than the 2018 lineup. Right now, it’s even cheaper than usual if you want to get a 256GB model.

If you hurry, you can get your hands on a 10.5-inch iPad Pro, in Space Gray, and with 256GB of storage for just $ 649.99. It would normally retail for just shy of $ 800, so that’s quite a saving for anyone looking to pick up a bargain on a great, albeit slightly older, iPad Pro.

You’ll still get a hell of a machine, too.

10.5-inch Retina display with ProMotion, True Tone, and wide color

A10X Fusion chip

Touch ID fingerprint sensor

12MP back camera, 7MP FaceTime HD front camera

Four speaker audio

802.11ac Wi-Fi and LTE cellular data

Up to 10 hours of battery life

This deal is available right now, but we don’t know for sure just how long it will be around, so if a new iPad Pro is on your shopping list but you don’t want to hand over the sums of money a new 2018 model requires, this is a great place to start your shopping hunt.

Buy: 10.5-inch 256GB iPad Pro from Amazon: $ 649 | Orginal price: $ 800

金悦轩海鲜酒家(拱北店)Jin Yue Xuan Restaurant, Zhuhai: Cantonese Restaurant Rated Best in Zhuhai

There are two outlets of 金悦轩海鲜酒家 Jin Yue Xuan Restaurant in Zhuhai and the 拱北店 Gongbei outlet is voted the best restaurant in the whole of Zhuhai on Da Zhong Dian Ping, which is the Yelp of China. As a Cantonese restaurant, it serves dim sum and other cooked dishes in daytime but at night, there is no dim sum. However, since Zhuhai is pretty much like Singapore where different people come together to make a living, the restaurant does serve food from other provinces in China because of customers’ demands.

On Dian Ping, most customers recommend their dim sum items but since we were there for dinner, we did not manage to eat any.

But boy! is the restaurant grand. It has a lavish entrance on the first floor, entirely empty, acting just as a reception space. On the second floor, via a lift, is the gigantic dining area with gold chandeliers.

Cantonese are known for their roast meats and Jin Yue Xuan does them well. A platter of two meats goes for ¥108. Although the quality of the char siew pork here is not comparable to Singapore’s, the taste is unique and delicious. It is a complex kind of sweetness that transforms into a piquant, appetising sourness.

I really wanted to eat roast goose since it is banned in Singapore. It tastes very much like duck except it is more tender with a heavy liver-y flavour like foie gras. Although it is more tender than duck (and tenderness usually means a high fat percentage), the goose does not feel fat or greasy, contrary to what the photograph might show. Excellent.

Recommended by the server, the 古法枝竹扣黑草羊 or traditional grass-fed black mutton cooked with bamboo (¥168) comes in a claypot so that the heat is maintained. It is rather unique, something I have not eaten before, but after two to three mouthfuls, I came to enjoy it very much and found it very delicious. The sauce tastes like sesame with Chinese wine and lemongrass and the umami of mushroom. The mutton is moist and tender; not gamy. Outstanding.

When you are almost done, you can add ¥20 to add spinach. The server will cook it in front of you. Spinach doesn’t really go with the sauce and it dilutes the sauce. So it may be better not to add.

My friend, who is from Sichuan, wanted this Sichuan specialty, 川辣海鲜毛血旺 spicy Sichuan seafood broth (¥65), which is less seafood and more pig’s blood, another banned substance in Singapore. It is acceptable to my Sichuan friend, so I guess it is okay.

We paid ¥487 for two persons. Pretty expensive for two persons, but the food is excellent and totally worth the splurge. Come in a big group: the menu is extensive and comes in big portions.

New Android Banking Trojan Can Steal 1000 Euros From PayPal Accounts

By | December 12th, 2018

Unfortunately, Android devices are no stranger to malware and general security problems, and it’s something that isn’t likely to change any time soon. While Android is by no means the only platform with a security issue, it does have more than its fair share in the mobile world.

The latest to crop up, shared by security firm ESET, comes in the form of a Trojan that targets the PayPal app, removing 1000 Euros from their accounts.

While the Trojan does also have some additional tricks that it can play on users – you can read them all in the full ESET blog post – the fact that it can dip into a user’s PayPal account is the most obviously worrying and, because of the way it works, the most surprising.

According to ESET, the Trojan is installed via a supposed battery management app that can be found on third-party stores. Once run, the app immediately crashes and removes its icon. From here, a user is asked to enable a seemingly nondescript accessibility service, which gives the Trojan a way of interacting with the screen. That sets things up for the kicker; users are then sent a PayPal notification, urging them to open the app and log in. When they do so, the accessibility service allows the Trojan to take over, tapping buttons and entering amounts as it goes. The whole thing takes a few seconds, and is almost impossible to stop once underway.

Because a user logs in prior to the Trojan taking control, this will impact users who have two-factor authentication enabled as well as those who don’t, which makes matters even worse.

If you’re an Android user, it’s well worth reading the full rundown of what this Trojan is capable of, if only to remind everyone that enabling accessibility services they don’t know is a bad idea.

Simon Road Oyster Omelette – Relocated to Upper Boon Keng Market

I was craving for a good oyster omelette and decided to head to one of my favourites, Simon Road Oyster Omelette. A quick google search revealed that the stall is no longer along Simon road, but at its new location at Upper Boon Keng Market.

Simonroad_Oyster_Stall2

At the helm is Lin Bao Ping, 47, who took over the business from his late father. Owing his skills at the stove to his father, Bao Ping has continued his father’s legacy by sticking to his time-tested recipe, which he still refers to every time he prepares the batter. I was curious to learn how Bao Ping prepares the oyster omelette, which is known to be one of the crispiest around. I peered into the stall as my plate was being prepared and realized that the batter was being fried for an extended period of time. I would later find out from Bao Ping that this was an important step in making the omelette extra crispy.

True to its reputation, the crisp of the omelette was undeniable. Fluffy and spongy egg, crisp batter, plump oysters — what more can one ask for?. At this point, I had my dining partner pass me all of her oysters because she only eats the egg in an oyster omelette – comment below if you are like that too!

Simonroad_Oyster_Fire

Simonroad_Oyster

Cooked by a skilful master who knows how to control the fire, the oyster omelette was blessed with an appetite-whetting smoky fragrance. The creaminess and brininess of the oyster complemented the egg and starch perfectly.

Simonroad_Oyster_Chilli

Of course, how can I forget about the chilli which plays an extremely important role in every plate of oyster omelette?  The zesty chilli sauce made the already addictive plate of omelette even more addictive. We couldn’t get enough of it!

Incredible Deal: Apple’s Latest 2018 9.7-Inch iPad 6 Down To Just $249 For The Holidays [Original Price: $329]

By | December 11th, 2018

Apple’s new 2018 iPad Pro is all the Internet seems to be talking about right now, but there is actually a great iPad at the very opposite of the pricing structure.

The 9.7-inch iPad is a great tablet, and with its support for the original Apple Pencil it might be a bargain even at its normal price. Right now you can pick up a 9.7-inch iPad 6 for just $ 249.

You’re going to need to be quick about it though. Available in all colors as of this writing, some of the colors might go out of stock soon so you better hurry. 32GB WiFi model is your only option though, but at less than $ 250 you’d be crazy to miss out.

There’s also the 128GB model on discount, but comes in at $ 349.99, which is still much better than paying the actual retail price.

With an A10 Fusion CPU and Touch ID, this iPad is a great starter tablet for anyone wanting to get into the world of iOS on a big screen. Thanks to its 10-hour battery life you won’t need to charge the thing too often, and unlike the iPad Pro it also has a headphone jack!

If you’re an artist you can also pick up the Apple Pencil that will work with this thing, making it into a mini iPad Pro of sorts. It may not be quite as fast, and it lacks Face ID, but it also costs a fraction of the new iPad Pro tablets. At this price, the iPad is a deal that really shouldn’t be missed.

Buy: Apple iPad (Wi-Fi, 32GB) – from Amazon: $ 249 | Original price: $ 329

Buy: Apple iPad (Wi-Fi, 128GB) – from Amazon: $ 349 | Original price $ 429

Thailand-Street-Food-14

Thailand Street Food Restaurant @ Yishun Junction 9 – Cheap and Good Thai Food

There is an abundance of Thai eateries around but good and affordable ones are hard to come by. Thailand Street Food is perhaps one of the few that fits the honourable claim well.

Junction 9 is a relatively new neighbourhood shopping mall in the Yishun area, surrounded by the residential and nearby commercial estates. Thailand Street Food restaurant is located on the ground floor of the mall. The interior design is simple but neat and they do have both the indoor air-conditioned and outdoor non-air-conditioned dining areas.

Thailand Street Food restaurant used to run a food stall selling authentic Thai street food at the Tai Seng area, and the business is now expanded to a full-fledged Thai restaurant offering traditional Thai cuisine.

We love Thai food, always enthralled by its exotic flavours and fragrance, and good ones could really make you salivate all the times.

Yam Khai Dao (Fried Egg Salad) $ 6

A deceptively simple salad dish but truly a class of its own, delivering the right flavour. The crispy edges of egg white marries perfectly with its sweet-sour dressing and the bite of the fresh herbs, chilli and greens. A case of remarkable food made with the most basic of ingredients, which perfectly embodies the beauty of simplicity.

Unfortunately, the dish is only available during off-peak hour due to time-consuming preparation process. It is perhaps the most coveted Thai salad and so pleasant to eat that we would like to have the second serving. (4.5/5)

Thai Stir Fried Kang Kong $ 6

Fried Kang Kong may be one of the most basic and common veggie dishes from any Thai restaurant, however, too few are able to deliver it right with the perfect crunchiness with a subtle and bold flavour. We are just too happy to find out Thailand Street Food restaurant executed the dish with a great flavour and texture, so good that we went for a repeat order. (4.7/5)

Available in both Spicy and non spicy.

Thai Stir Fried Long Bean with sambal $ 8

The stir fried long bean with Sambal is not intimidating at all with its sweet smelling concoction. You can choose the long beans to go with Pork, chicken or seafood. The dish was flavourful and the long beans kept to the Thai traditional style with a light stir to retain its crunchiness. (3.5/5)

Pandan Chicken $ 6

The chicken is moist, tender, infused with refreshing pandan and light spice aroma. A longer marinating time to allow the flavour better permeate deeper into the meat will perfect this typical Thai dish. (3.0/5)

TomYam Fried rice $ 6/$ 8

You can choose fried rice to go with prawn, chicken or seafood. My son’s eyes were wide open when he had the first spoonful of the fried rice. We have to agree that the Tom Yam fried rice is very well done with its delicate, fragrant aromatic charred flavour and lovely Tom Yam seasoning. Texture of rice was grainy and smooth, another highly recommended dish here. (4.0/5)

Omelette $ 7

Just whiffs of the eggy aroma from the omelette could make you drool. Somehow, the chef from Thailand Street Food Restaurant is undoubtedly the master of this simple but demanding dish. The omelette has the perfect fluffiness and flavour to make it one of the top-notch dish here. Highly recommended. (4.6/5)

Choice of Prawn, chicken or pork available

Tom Yam Soup $ 5 / $ 8

There is no clear Tom Yam soup available so we can only opt for the red version. The seemingly fierce iconic Thai spicy soup was surprisingly mild and tame on the taste buds. However, it has not compromised on the flavour at all, the soup was inundated with piquant flavours with the right emphasis on the use of spices to deliver a powerful aroma and lasting aftertaste on the tongue. Definitely worth to try. (4.0/5)

Choice of Prawn, chicken or pork available

Grilled Pork neck $ 7

Thailand Street Food Restaurant is more gentle with its seasoning and relied on the sweet, sour and spicy house-made dipping sauce to perk up the flavour. The pork neck may be juicy and tender but we are still more inclined to have the grilled pork neck comes with bits of crispy and charred edges to lift the overall flavour. (2.8/5)

Thai grilled pork on a skewer $ 6

Thai grilled pork skewers are slightly on the sweet side but it is full of flavour, the meat was tender with its sinful high-fat content. (3.3/5)

Thai Glass Noodle Stir Fried with vegetable $ 6 / $ 8

The needed ingredients were present – fresh cuttlefish, prawn, spring onion, onion, chilli etc. However, the glass noodle was a little too bland in taste underwhelming with its seasoning. It can be another great dish if more work was done to lift up the flavour. (2.5/5)

Mango sticky Rice $ 5

Flavour of the rice may be acceptable but the texture of the sticky rice was hard and missing the softness of the good sticky rice. Mango was fresh and firm in texture. (2.2/5)

Red Ruby $ 3

You can definitely enjoy the crunchiness of the chestnut wrapped in the lovely red tapioca jelly that swim in a bowl of the coconut milk and ice, a refreshing touch to the meal. (3.0/5)

Our verdict

We have dined in many Thai eateries around the island and few have made it a memorable with both the quality and price. This hidden gem in Yishun has somehow left us with a deep impression. Thailand Street Food restaurant may be small and new but the important thing is, most of the dishes here work and work well. The very reasonable and affordable prices with no GST and Service Charge provides another reason that warrants many future visits.

Paradise Teochew, Vivocity: (Hor) Fun Teochew Classics and Unique Creations

After Scotts Square, Paradise Teochew has opened its second outlet at Vivocity, offering unique creations as well as many well-loved Teochew classic dishes by Chef Cheng Fa Kwan.

The Teochew Style Roasted Suckling Pig ($ 198) is a bit of a spectacle. They literally go whole-hog here – face and feet included. Make no mistake, this is oily. And by that, I mean that all the fat’s been slowly rendered and in the process, the skin has been ‘slow-fried’ in it to a deep brown crisp. You catch that perfectly balanced spice blend just under your nose but not on the tongue. Lovely.

The Teochew Style Braised Duo Combination Platter (Sliced Irish Fat Duck, Sliced Pork Knuckle) ($ 26, small) feels truly Teochew-authentic, i.e., very light on the seasoning with a focus on allowing the natural flavours to shine. I especially like the duck with a little fat under its skin, and tender with just enough fibrous bite to its flesh. It’s complete on its own but if you like, a dab of the light house-made vinegar-based chilli sauce (not spicy) really brightens things up!

The Pan-fried and Braised Live Soon Hock (Seasonal Price) is one of my favourite items at this tasting. It’s so easy to mess this up. Fry it a moment too long and the delicate fish flavour is lost. But do this right and you get depth in the braise and delightful flavour layers: the outer pan-fried crispy bits offering a contrast to the soft, delicate, flaky centre like it’s a different animal altogether. There is voodoo in the broth: a chalky seafood richness that’s balanced with the aromatic lift of onions and leek and sweetened with radish. You want to add rice to this and properly soak up every last drop.

The Paradise Teochew Stir-fried Assorted Vegetables and Cuttlefish ($ 28, small) is no simple tossed salad. They don’t tell you this but it’s a dish requiring some expert level wok dance. You get a minute or less to work with this and fires raging so high, stock and sauces vaporise on contact with the wok. There is umami delivered in spades from the sizeable dried shrimp, strong wok-hei, nuttiness, char in places and sweet vegetable crunch. This is as tasty as it is pretty. Must order!

These days, I see deep-fried batter and I immediately expect it to be salty. But the Paradise Teochew Pan-fried Seafood and Yam Pancake ($ 24) is thin, crispy and surprisingly light on seasoning. You get chunks of seafood, prawns in particular, that still retain their crunch and grainy, nutty bits of yam that kind of holds everything together. The crispy edges are the best!

Another must-order item is the Wok-fried Hor Fun with Kai Lan and Preserved Turnip ($ 18, small). I cannot decide if I like this better or the fish. Probably this! Let me put it this way: You know how it’s possible to ‘accidentally’ sleep with a guy you’re not normally attracted to because you’re too sad or too drunk, but who turns out to give you some of the best sex you’ve ever had that you cannot talk about? This hor fun is that guy. Not much to look at but so good. You cannot talk about the guy because you’re embarrassed, the same way you want to resist raving about this hor fun because it’s not exactly the finest thing on the menu! I mean, what audacity?! Just kway teow, chai po and charred kai lan? But this is savoury, slippery, crunchy, smoky, so unexpected and totally unforgettable!

Despite appearances, the Crispy Pumpkin, Yam and Sweet Potato Strips ($ 16) is not overly sweet. But it’s a little tough texture-wise and I find it’s stacked a little too thick to be readily enjoyed and I have a big mouth! I have to rip it apart to eat it and to me that kind of defeats the purpose.

The Tau Suan with Gingko ($ 4.50) is done nicely and traditionally with no surprises. It’s less viscous than expected and not so sweet. The Mashed Yam with Gingko ($ 5) is silky smooth & it’s purely yam with just some shallot oil without any coconut milk.

The food is pretty good here and the ambience is lovely, whether you choose regular seating, you’re in one of the VIP rooms or if you have friends visiting and you would actually like to be outdoors enjoying the view. I would certainly order any wok-fried item with confidence. And even as I write this, my mouth waters for that hor fun.

Apple Watch Series 4’s ECG Feature May Have Saved This Man’s Life, Says His Doctor

By | December 9th, 2018

Apple released watchOS 5.1.2 less than 48 hours ago, and the feature brought with it support for the Apple Watch Series 4’s ECG feature, something that was heavily touted at launch. While many people tested the feature out and found no issues whatsoever, some did indeed discover that things weren’t as they should be. In fact, one person may already have had their life saved by the Apple Watch’s latest health-oriented feature.

One Reddit user tells a story of his own testing of the new ECG feature, with the results repeatedly claiming a result of AFib, or atrial fibrillation. He thought it was simply a case of the watch returning false positives due to flaky or buggy software, but after testing it on his wife and having seen her results come back as clear, he decided that it might be worth taking a trip to a clinic.

Upon visiting the clinic and speaking with a doctor, it seems the Apple Watch may have been spot on all along. The doctor said that he expected to see more people pay visits to clinics as a result of the Apple Watch feature, but didn’t expect to see someone so soon.

However, after hooping the person up to a full ECG, it was confirmed that he was indeed in AFib, meaning his heart was not beating at a correct rhythm. In fact, the doctor told the Apple Watch wearer that “this probably saved you.”

That’s quite the endorsement! The Apple Watch has been credited with saving lives many a time, and it seems we might have had to wait less than a day for the new ECG feature to prove its worth.

Kyuubei: Japanese Sushi and Sashimi in the East

Tendon
Tendon $ 14.90

I first met Chef Thomas Kok in 2011 when he was the head chef at Hokkaido Sushi which was named “Best Japanese Restaurant” under his watch.   At that time, I was starting to write my “Sushi Files” and it was with his help that I managed to document the different seafood used in sushi!

Chef Thomas subsequently moved to Jin Fine Dining where he did a very popular $ 80 omakase set for our fans, as well as helping us to raise funds for our orphanage project in Batam.  After a short stint at Hokkai Villa, Chef Thomas has now taken over the space at Changi Village Hotel that Choubei used to occupy.

This is good news for those of you who are living or working in the East where it is not as easy to find a Japanese restaurant that is serving good quality Japanese food.  The even better news is that now he is serving the same quality food at more competitive prices!

The restaurant specialises and sushi and sashimi and chef Thomas is offering our readers a special 6 course omakase set for just $ 68++.  The courses will include amaebi karage, premium sashimi (includes otoro), grilled hamachi kama, buta kakuni, tempura, 5 pc sushi and dessert.

For a quick meal (lunch and dinner), he is also offering four different sets for our readers!  All you need to do is to show them this post!  All the sets will come with miso soup and a side dish like chawanmushi.


Bara Chirashi Don $ 18

I would highly recommend his tendon $ 14.90 which is one of the best value tendons I have come across.  Granted that there are now quite a few places around Singapore that are offering tendons for less than $ 15, but they are not likely going to be fresh, good sized tiger prawns!  On top of that you also get your vegetables and a handful of crispy fried amaebi which are really tasty! Chef also uses quality Hokkaido rice and makes his own tendon sauce which is light and flavourful unlike the sweet, sticky, treacle like sauces that a lot of places like to use nowadays. 4.5/5

I am not a big fan of chirashi don as I prefer to have nigiri sushi if I am eating raw fish.  But Chef’s chirashi don will satisfy those of you who are craving for raw fish. 4.25/5


Hokkaido Snow Beef Don $ 18

For wagyu lovers, there is the beef don which is made with thin slices of the very exclusive Hokkaido snow beef which comes from Lake Uenae farm in Hokkaido.  This beef is very rare, with only 3 heads of cattle being slaughtered each month.  It does seem like a waste to saute this beef with teriyaki sauce as you can’t really appreciate the natural sweetness of the beef which comes from their diet of the famous Hokkaido sweetcorn!  4.25/5


Kurobuta Tonkatsu Don $ 19.80

My tonkatsu was slightly overcooked that day but because it was kurobuta pork, the meat was still very tender and tasty.  The panko could have been a little looser and fluffier.  4/5

Conclusion

Good to know of a Japanese restaurant in the Eastern tip of Singapore selling top quality Japanese food.  The environment isn’t exactly what I would have expected of a sushi bar (it is in an open lobby area of the hotel) but the food is good and very reasonably priced!
