14 New Or Updated Cydia Tweaks For iOS 10.2 Jailbreak: Sonus, TranslucentMessages, Unify, More

By | February 19th, 2017

It’s that time of week again, where we do our level best to keep you apprised of the new and updated tweaks that can be used in conjunction with the latest jailbreaks around, which right now happens to be the yalu102 jailbreak for iOS 10.0.x-10.2 iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices.

As mentioned above, if you’re running a jailbroken version of iOS 10, all the way up to iOS 10.2, then you’re good to go when it comes to installing any of the 14 tweaks we’re going to share with you below.

That’s right, 14. Never let it be said that we don’t offer value for money here at RP. So without any further ado, and with a steely determination, let’s just jump right into it, shall we?

For your ease and comfort, we have clearly mentioned the repository each of these tweaks on Cydia live in, as well as the price for associated with them, if any, right beside the tweak’s name so that it helps you easily scan through this list of ours for your next tweak.

Sonus (BigBoss, $ 1.99)

If after all these years of iOS, you find yourself tired of the standard volume HUD, then now would be a wonderful time to install Sonus. It looks so, so much better.

Harbor (BigBoss, $ 0.99)

The iOS dock may get a redesign as part of iOS 11, but right now, jailbroken peeps can check out Harbor. What this thing does to the dock is amazing, including the ability to have icons bounce when a notification is received.

Unify (, Free)

Properly group your iOS 10 notifications on both the Lock screen and in Notification Center. Are you paying attention here, Apple?

HapticScroll (BigBoss, $ 1.49)

You know how awesome it is when the screen bounces after scroll limit is reached? Wouldn’t it be cool if your iPhone also vibrated at the same time? Install this tweak and find out for yourself.

3DLight (BigBoss, Free)

Give notifications and widgets a nice, white look. It’s about as clean as clean can be.

Low Power Modder (BigBoss, Free)

Configure at which battery percentage Low Power Mode automatically activates.

PassButtonStyle (BigBoss, Free)

Bored of the standard buttons used when entering your passcode? Alter them to make them look just how you like with this tweak.

Mitsuha (BigBoss, Free)

Give the Music app a Jell-O effect, which makes it look so smooth, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.

MessageFilter (BigBoss, Free)

With MessageFilter, you can choose words that will get blocked in certain, specified conversations within the Messages app.

SendDelay (BigBoss, Free)

Want to send a message in the Messages app and not have it actually send immediately in case you make a mistake and want to cancel it? You can do exactly that with this tweak installed.

Camera Tools (BigBoss, Free)

This tweak alters the stock Camera app to give it a nicer user interface and add extra functionality such as the ability to hide certain camera modes.

TranslucentMessages (BigBoss, Free)

Give the stock Messages app a whole new, rather gorgeous translucent look.

NoWifiWhenRunThisPlz (BigBoss, Free)

It may have a name that is nothing short of horrific, but this tweak’s ability to automatically disconnect from WiFi when specific apps are launched makes up for that.

Apex 2 (BigBoss, Free)

Think of folders, but better – way better – so much better, we think Apple should do something similar, better.

Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup review – 勿洛亚坤鱼汤

Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup has impressed us both of their fish soup and meat ball soup. This is another hidden gems in the HDB that warrant the support. In fact, we are contemplating to list them as one of the good hawker food for 2017.

Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup review – 勿洛亚坤鱼汤

Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup occupied two adjacent units selling fish soup and zi char, consistent stream of customers seems to imply something attractive about the stall. Most of the customers apparently went after the fish soup and meat ball soup, we decided to check it out.

Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup 1

Fish Soup $ 4/6/8
Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup uses more expensive Batang fish than the cheaper snakehead for the fish slices.

Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup 3

The portion of the fish slices were generous, each slices of fish were thickly sliced and had double to triple the thickness compared to other fish soup stalls, fish was fresh with the sweetness of the broth can be felt in every sip. Definitely one of the better fish soup we have tried so far.

Meat ball soup $ 4/6/8

Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup may be specialised in fish dishes and we have to agree they served fairly good fish soup, however, the meat ball soup was just equally phenomenal and surprisingly impressive compared to the fish soup.

Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup 2

The meat balls were a mixture of minced pork, fish meat, carrot, Chinese celery, water chestnut and the spices. Each meat ball was packed with salivating flavour with a nice texture, the soup was infused with the additional sweetness from the meat balls and highly recommended dish to order.

Our verdict on Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup

Bedok Ah Koon Fish Soup has impressed us both of their fish soup and meat ball soup. This is another hidden gems in the HDB that warrant the support. In fact, we are contemplating to list them as one of the good hawker food for 2017.

Sushi Mitsuya 鮨三矢, Tras St: Recommended by Japanese on Separate Occasions 

img_1504Although there are more than 800 Japanese restaurants in Singapore, the Japanese expat community is tight and word gets around the grapevine. On separate occasions, Japanese have recommended Sushi Mitsuya along Tras Street. It offers good value for their excellent sushi; it is still expensive, my Japanese friends said, but less expensive than top tier Japanese restaurants in Singapore.

For lunch, the barachirashi set ($ 50) is least worth it to me; it’s only a bowl of rice with diced fish and you can’t gauge the culinary prowress of the Head Chef Ryosuke Harada, who worked at Sushi Sora at Mandarin Oriental Tokyo. The two sushi sets ($ 60 or $ 100) are better. If you can splurge, the lunch omakase set ($ 180) is more affordable than the dinner ($ 130 or $ 200 or $ 300).

The problem with Japanese sushi restaurants in Singapore, in general, is that just for a little bit of better quality, you have to pay a lot more. Mitsuya’s two lunch sushi sets, for example, differ by $ 40; the less expensive set has 8 pieces of sushi whereas the more expensive has 6 pieces of superior ingredients, along with extras such as cooked dishes and sashimi that the less expensive set doesn’t have.

I took the more expensive sushi set.

img_1507The cooked dishes are impressive. It starts with a homemade sesame tofu which has a gooey texture. In the mouth, sweet, salty, pungent flavors explode. How can they make tofu taste so heavenly?

img_1511Following the tofu, the clams with mustard is sweet from the seafood, and  nicely chewy. The steamed cod, however, could do with a little salt, and the homemade prawn ball soup, which comes at the end of the meal, is equally bland.

img_1517The plating for sashimi is gorgeous, and seeing it already lifts one’s spirit. They are ok in general, but the maguro tuna is tasteless and should have been aged longer and the saba mackerel is fishy.

img_1525Long anticipated is the sushi and they appeal to the sight. They look like tiny, bite-sized of jewels, shiny and pristine. The firmness of seafood, not soft and slimy, is much appreciated and the shari is slightly harder than other sushi-ya’s, which gives the sushi a good overall bite.

img_1527Here, I feel that Chef Harada uses salt too liberally. The soy sauce overcomes the taste of kasugodai sushi (baby snapper), which is overly sinewy. The hotate scallop, seasoned with black salt and yuzu, has the same problem of oversaltiness. Less is more.

img_1531Like the saba in the sashimi, the saba sushi is fishy. Perhaps it would be better not to repeat the fish in both sashimi and sushi.

img_1536Chutoro medium fatty tuna is divine! The treatment of it, making small slits on the surface, brilliantly increases the surface area, enhancing the availability of fats. It also curls in the mouth, like a cat in a box, giving a feel-good mouthfeel. But how come otoro isn’t offered in this set?!

img_1540Although the uni sushi is so chilled it gives my tooth an ache, it is amazing. That seafood-sweetness-crossed-peanut-butter-creaminess. OMG. I also want to write an ode to the top quality seaweed. It’s crisp and umami, going excellently with the uni.

img_1541I also like the arrangement of the sushi, from lightest to heaviness, ending with a spectacular anago sea eel. I have no particular liking for anago, but Chef Harada makes it such that it is pillowy with the right balance of sweetness and saltiness that I understand why he puts it at the end of the array as a highlight.

img_1547Negitoro maki is a commonplace sushi, but like the anago, Chef Harada has elevated it, making it umami and unforgettable with that crisp and delicious seaweed.

img_1559Usually Japanese restaurants don’t pay attention to their desserts. It isn’t part of the traditional omakase culture to have desserts; usually it’s just fruits or ice cream. But Mitsuya gives a well-rounded experience by their miso ice cream paired with hojicha (roasted tea) panna cotta. It’s one of the most original and delicious desserts I’ve eaten this year: salty miso counterbalances the sweet panna cotta. Moreish!

I can see why many of my Japanese friends recommend Mitsuya. Compared to top sushi restaurants, the quality is on par, and the price is better. I paid $ 117 for my meal.

After T-Mobile And Verizon, AT&T Launches New Unlimited Data Plan

By | February 17th, 2017

Coming after both T-Mobile and Verizon jumped back onto the unlimited data plan bandwagon, AT&T has now announced plans to do exactly the same thing. The carrier’s new unlimited data plan will debut on February 17, and will be available to everyone on existing postpaid plans.

While AT&T did already offer a plan that included unlimited data, that offer was only available to those who were also DirecTV or U-Verse customers. Today’s announcement removes that requirement, opening the doors for many, many more people to take advantage of the unlimited data on offer.

As outlined by AT&T today, the new plan will also include unlimited calls, text messages, and data on four lines for $ 180 (after $ 40 credit for 4th smartphone line) while those wanting a single line will cost $ 100.

AT&T will also throw in unlimited calls from the U.S. to Canada and Mexico and unlimited texts to more than 120 countries around the world. Those on the unlimited plan will also be able to talk, text, and use data in Canada and Mexico without having to worry about roaming charges.

“We’re offering unlimited entertainment on the nation’s best data network where and when you want to enjoy more of what you love,” said David Christopher, Chief Marketing Officer of the AT&T Entertainment Group.

With AT&T joining Verizon and T-Mobile in offering an unlimited data plan, all of the biggest players in the cellular business in the United States are now once again giving their customers the chance to download as much as they want for a flat fee, or at least as much data as their acceptable use policy allows, anyway.

The vast majority of people will not have to worry about such things though, and if all you want to do is not have to worry about how much YouTube you watch while out and about, then you’re going to be just fine.

Takeaway Rice Bowls at Tanjong Pagar Centre: Chalong and Makai Poke 

Most tenants of Tanjong Pagar Centre are F&B establishments, and there are some very interesting and/or delicious food here: Food Anatomy presents food like nasi lemak in cubes; Guzman y Gomez is one of my favorite Mexican fastfood in BrisbaneHattendo serves good cream buns (the custard bun is better than the matcha); Imakatsu is my favorite tonkatsu in Singapore; not a gimmick, Japan Rail Cafe is opened by Japan Rail; Kelly’s Cape Bop gets a mention in Hong Kong Michelin Guide street food edition;  Kuro Maguro is by the acclaimed Maguro DonyaSBCD Korean Tofu House serves set menus with tofu as a main; with 3 outlets in Malaysia, The Little Island dishes out Penang cuisine.

As you can tell, I’m excited and will definitely be back to try the rest of the food. But yesterday, I was alone, and it was best to eat rice bowls.

Chalong Singapore
7 Wallich Street, Tanjong Pagar Centre B2-21 Singapore 078884
M-F 11.30am-2pm, 5.30pm-7.30pm, Sat 12pm-3pm

img_2499If I have money, I’d franchise Chalong immediately. It is OMG good.

Elin Boh, only 26 years old, is the mastermind behind Chalong, and has two culinary diplomas, one from Le Cordon Bleu (Paris), and the other from Oliver Bajard International School of Patisserie (Perpignan, France).

The takeaway kiosk, with 4 seats by the side, serves charcoal-grilled meat with rice, inspired by Thai flavors. The meats are grilled in a Josper oven and smoked with applewood to give depth. They are also sous vide to give consistency, and a tenderness while maintaining the juices. They use other atas ingredients like Himalayan salt and Denmark butter.

img_2504On the menu, there are only 3 rice bowls which come with an onsen egg: Iberico jowl ($ 12), gai (Thai basil chiclen leg, $ 9), and black angus sirloin ($ 14). You may add asparagus  ($ 1), cherry tomatoes on vine ($ 1), and mushroom ($ 1.50). If the meat is not enough, you may also add on chicken ($ 3), pork ($ 4), and beef ($ 5).

img_2509WOW. The pork jowl is fantastic. It is imported from Spain and sous vide for 18 hours. It is supposedly marinated in Thai aromatics, but I definitely tasted some French flavors, some uplifting herbs, elevating it. It’s succulent and tender, but there is still a nice bite, pleasing people who like tender food and people who like a bite. After eating this, the whole mouth is full of a sweet smokiness from apple wood.

img_2510I added the grass-fed black angus sirloin (+$ 5), which is air-flown from New Zealand. Although I think they slice it too thinly, there is an umami coming from the fats inherent in the meat. The red wine sauce is fantastic, even better than fine-dining restaurants’ versions.

img_2511There are two areas that could be improved: (1) I don’t like the texture of Japanese Yamagata rice because it is too starchy and has the texture of glutinous rice; a fluffier and looser rice would be able to absorb the sauce better; and (2) Eating through halfway, I thought the meat were heavy, and needed to add asparagus ($ 1) to undercut the heaviness. Maybe they could have included a complimentary vegetable in the bowl.

I paid $ 18 for the bowl ($ 12 pork bowl+$ 5 beef+$ 1 veg).

Makai Poke
7 Wallich Street, Tanjong Pagar Centre B1-08 Singapore 078884

img_2460For the uninitiated, a poke bowl, a Hawaiian dish, is marinated raw fish (usually tuna or salmon) over rice or salad. And the poke bowl game is strong in Singapore. There must be 15 or 20 shops in Singapore serving the poke bowl.

img_2468Makai, a takeaway store, just opened yesterday, and I might be their first customer. Priced at $ 9.90, the poke bowl includes avocado, Japanese cucumber, carrots, cherry tomatoes, pineapple, salmon roe, a choice of rice or salad, and a choice of marinated fish. You may, of course, add on more ingredients at a price. I didn’t and paid $ 9.90 for the bowl.

img_2469I’m not a rabbit, so I didn’t choose the salad; I got a mix of sushi rice, red and brown rice. For the “poke,” it was the Makai original shoyu salmon for me. I always order the dish with the shop name in it.

It is a nice mix of flavors. The rice is still warm, and the salmon and avocado are cool, so it is a funblast in the mouth.

Polr is a free open source URL shortener API that you can install and run locally on your own domain. It’s written in PHP and runs on Lumen, so it should be easy to deploy for any server. You can actually see a live demo here if you want to try it out.

Polr allows you to write your own custom URLs and to auto-generate a link if needed. You can install this on any domain to build custom URLs that point to any page anywhere online.

The framework is surprisingly simple to install and it comes with a full installable web app for your site.

Granted there is a semi-detailed installation guide which you can read here if you’re interested. This basically covers the requirements such as PHP/MySQL along with the installation steps for working with Laravel/Lumen.

I’ll say this is not the simplest solution out there. However it is secure, powerful, and one of the best tools for maintaining control over your own custom URL shortener.

If you check the demo page you can log in using the user/pass of demo-admin.

polr links table

Polr comes with a dashboard page displaying all the links ever created on your site. You can search by keywords or sort by settings such as creation date. It also lets you customize or delete certain links from the database if you want to clean up some URLs.

And it has a fully-fledged API which lets you (or others) apply for API keys and build links programmatically. This is huge for writing your own shareable links that get auto-posted to social networks like Twitter.

Think about huge blogs like Mashable or TechCrunch that run their own URL shorteners. Polr allows anyone to do this on a simple PHP server with an open source platform.

This is by far the best app for anyone looking to create a custom URL shortener. It may take some elbow grease to set up but once you get it going this URL shortener will prove invaluable to your marketing strategy.

Soon Heng Hot and Cold Desserts: Hawkers we grow up with

Tau Suan

Our hawkers are really a big part of our lives here in Singapore, don’t you think?  Most of us would have grown up eating from the same hawker stall for years and and these hawkers would have become much more than just a person who sells food.


I am sure that this particular lady hawker at Soon Heng Hot and Cold Desserts would have many regulars who have grown up (or grown old) eating at her stall.  I have met many hawkers but she was the first one I met whose smile was sweeter than her desserts!

I get a lot of different reactions whenever I pull out my DSLR camera.  Some hawkers ask why I am taking photos.  Others continue to work as if I wasn’t there.  But when Mrs Yang saw my camera, she quickly struck up her kawaii pose!

Lotus seeds
Lotus Seed Sweet Soup (Lian Zi Suan)

What first drew me to the stall was the availability of lian zi suan. (Lotus seed soupThis traditional Teochew sweet soup is not easy to find nowadays because of the rising cost of lotus seeds.  (A 200g pack of lotus seeds at the supermarket costs around $ 6!)  The only other stall that I have come across that sells this is “House of Dessert” at Tampines Round Market.  They actually stopped selling it for a period of time because of the increase in price of raw lotus seeds.  Thankfully, they started selling it again last year.

This soup is not difficult to cook but it is easy to get it wrong unless you get a tip from grandma (or from the internet nowadays).    Most of us would intuitively soak the seeds first before cooking, but this is the last thing you want to do as the seeds will ever turn into the nice, mealy, powdery texture no matter how long you boil them.  Instead, the seeds must go straight into hot boiling water for a while then followed by either a slow simmer or steam.  Once they are soft, simply add them to syrup which has been thickened with tapioca starch.

For all that trouble, I think most people wouldn’t mind forking out the $ 2 for a bowl of lian zi suan at this stall.  I think this is probably also the cheapest place where you can buy this in Singapore.  In fact, all her other desserts are also just $ 1!  Talk about old school prices.  When I asked Mrs Yang how she managed to keep prices so low, she just smiled and said that its her way of keeping her customers happy!

Aside from the lotus seed soup, her tau suan is also very good.  4.25/5What was impressive was how her you tiao remained so fresh!  I managed to try some of her other desserts like cheng tng and honey sea coconut.  They were average but at $ 1 a bowl, I don’t think anyone is complaining!



Old school sweet soups served with an even sweeter smile which will make you smile even more when all you need is some spare change to enjoy it!

Apple Users Beware: This Malware Uses MS Word to Infect macOS

Macro-based attacks stemming from malicious Microsoft Word documents have existed for a while now as it is still considered one of the most effective ways to compromise a Windows machine. Now, it appears that this form of attack is making its way to the Mac as well.

Security researchers have managed to identify such an attack on a Mac device by way of a Word file titled “U.S. Allies and Rivals Digest Trump’s Victory – Carnegie Endowment for International Peace”. Hidden inside the file is an embedded macro that can be triggered if a user opens the document in a Word application that has been configured to allow macros.

If the user decides to open the file despite the warning that flashes up when opening it, the embedded macro would proceed to check if the LittleSnitch security firewall is running. If it isn’t, the macro would then download an encrypted payload from Once the download is complete, the macro would then decrypt the payload using a hard-coded key, followed by the execution of the payload.

According to security researchers, the Python-based code found in the macro is almost a direct copy of a known open-source exploit framework for Mac called EmPyre. While researchers are unable to get their hands on the payload that was serving, the EmPyre components means that the macro could potentially be used to monitor webcams, steal passwords and encryption keys stored in a keychain, and access browsing histories.

python post exploitation

This malicious Word file marks the first time someone has attempted to compromise a Mac via macro abuse. While the malware isn’t particularly advance, there is no denying that macros are still highly effective when it comes to compromising a machine. Mac users should probably be extra vigilant when it comes to Word files from now on.

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen review @ MyVillage

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen @ MyVillage

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen 10

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen @ MyVillage is steered by Chef Tan-San who is famed for various creations such as Kurobuta Pork Tonkatsu and Tonkatsu Ramen. Naturally it has to be our choice.

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen 8

Premium Pork Loin Tonkatsu Set $ 19.9

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen 1

Pork loin is fairly lean, mildly flavored meat with a thick cap of fat on top and tender if cooked properly. Somehow the term “premium” did come with some expectations with the listed premium price, however the Tonkastsu may be crisp with a nice golden brown bread crumbs but the texture was tough and dry. Premium? May be this is what exactly “premium” quality pork loin should be for the texture but unfortunately we don’t really appreciate it.

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen 2

Tonkatsu Ramen $ 14.9

 Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen 7

The tough and dry premium pork loin was contrary to the ordinary Tonkatsu which was juicy and tender. What? Ordinary pork loin tasted better than the premium? Sorry, it is our opinion and kind of regretted the “premium” price paid.

The Tojiru soup was light but flavourful and the imported Niigata rice superiority cannot be questioned much.

Salmon Don $ 14.9

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen 4

It might just be a simple bowl of salmon and rice but it was packed with flavour and full of fragrance. The tenderly cooked salmon was done with a perfect texture and seasoned. Probably the best meal of the day.

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen 5

Cha Shu Ramen 11.9

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen 6

If you like rich and thick ramen broth base, the uniqueness of Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen light broth may not please your palate. However, don’t be fooled by the uncomplicated nature as it was deceiving from the plain look, the consensus of everyone tasted was surprisingly positive! The light but deeply flavoured broth laced with the earthy miso served with the nicely Chashu was a pleasant.

Gyoza $ 6.9

Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen 3

Not too bad for its nice filling and alluring taste.

Our verdict on Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen

In general, Hajime Tonkatsu & Ramen serves reasonably good Japanese food with affordable price. Chef Tan-san proven culinary skills and his friendly crews make dining here a pleasant experience.
