回首望去,对我来说唯有美食不可辜负! ( Singapore Blogger )

时间真的过得很快,2015已快接近尾声了,即将迎来新的一年,
我想这个时候,应该很多人会跟我一样感到很感慨,
过去的这一年里,我们到底改变了什么,学到了什么或是收获了什么?

刚刚在打扫书房地同时,偶然地发现了自己收藏的一些杂志代表作,
刹那间,我感觉自己很幸福,
因为我永远相信只有不断地努力,培养自己,才能创造出更美好的未来。
如今我也获得了多间餐馆地邀约,试菜,拍摄,
说真的,这一切对我来说不只是一种飞跃,也更是一种体会,
因为我的社交圈子里,又多了很多饮食业的朋友,
所以我很感恩,也很珍惜目前拥有地一切,
看着这些杂志,仿佛感觉好像还在昨天,拼了命的去完成它!
不得不感慨地承认,随着时代的变迁,
网络也渐渐地进入人们的生活中扮演着越来越重要地角色,
这样的趋势也正在改变人们的传统生活习惯,
就好比当初我被Where To Eat In Singapore杂志总编辑邀约,
一同参与杂志地制作,写稿,以及当美食顾问,
这一切一切参与,
让我感觉很充实,
应该这么说吧,我很欣赏跟大家互相学习交流的那一段时光,
因为配合杂志地需求,每一刊只选出30间最好吃的餐馆,
而我在试吃的时候,也会面对“抉择”应该用“百里千挑万一吧”
必须选出最具特色的美食给读者,
这也才不会辜负读者对我的评价,
尽管,有些餐馆会希望我给与最高的评价,
但是,一旦我下了主观判断,
我将遵守我的原则,
因为我相信我的“坚持”杂志才会获得公信力。

如今,  杂志虽说不被淘汰,
但现在的年轻人都是网上搜寻美食,
更向往美食杂志,
而杂志总编辑也看好这样的趋势,
从而开创了,美食节目,
犹记得,一开始,我跟总编辑一同走访了好多间餐馆,
当中有些是杂志推选出来的老顾客,
我跟总编辑一一地向餐馆说出我们的市场方案,
这项制作中将邀约本地著名 Blogger 一同参与,
岂知,一些常关注我的餐馆都推荐我 “下海”
说真的,当时的心情是百感交集,
因为一直处身于“幕后”的我,要“亮相”于大众,
还真有点不习惯,
那时总编辑就试着说服我,
Brother : “以你多年的美食验应该没问题啦”!!!敢敢去....
再者,当时一些餐馆业者也指定邀约我一同参与节目的拍摄,
原因是看中我的”天赋“ 因为我能说出食物的精髓所在....(偷笑中)
为了不负众望,我拍摄了我的第一支“处女作"。
Tonny Restaurant......
接着....
就有接二连三的餐馆邀约,
也因为这样,我成为Where To Eat In Singapore 旗下的最受欢迎的Blogger 之一...
近日来,拍摄的档期也排的满满,
下一篇,我将分享我的一些拍制作过成。。

这里的每一本都是我的心血!

Healthy hair leads to a healthier lifestyle #lifestyle blogger

Keeping my hair healthy looking is essential as I will always have photo shoot and video filming. There are some simple steps that I do to maintain my hair condition at Pavo Hair Studio, my most trusted salon.
Before I start, I have to stress the importance of using toner everyday during the day and night to prevent clogging of the pores and reduce oil on my scalp. It is also easier to absorb when I apply any kind of hair tonic or scrub once every two weeks.

Step 1, I will use scalp cleansing to massage my scalp at different parts of
the head to allow new hair growth, better blood circulation and remove all oil linings at the sides of my hair. Continue to message for 15 minutes to get the best effect. It is just like doing facial whereby you have to remove your dead skin. 


Step 2, Wash my hair with the active scalp shampoo after 5 minutes to clean off thorughly. The shampoo has a cooling effect to wash away all the oil that sticks stubbornly on the scalp.


Step 3, Scalp vital infusion is made up of organic ingredients and has no alcohol contents. Using an an air brush, it is penetrated effectively into my pores. The previous 2 steps are very important because if it is not done properly, my scalp will not be able to absorb all the nutrients.
This time round I did not take any photos as I was rushing for my video filming. Next time round I will take a video of the whole process and share the before and after result for those who are curious. Look forward to it!

Long time favourite classic English brunch - Singapore Blogger

As my usual routine, I will wake up early in the morning and take my breakfast after the run. However today I met up with Alison and ended our session at a later time close to 11am, it was too late to have our breakfast so she decided to bring me to this English brunch.

Light English Breakfast / German Sausage
The Light English Breakfast is suitable for people who likes to have different choices of food in one plate. It is not too heavy and the portion is just right to fill me up. It consist of crispy streaky bacon, juicy bratwurst sausage, baked beans, eggs, grilled tomato and toast with jam and butter. The combination was perfect! 

Eggs Benedict 
Eggs Benedict is my favourite. A good eggs benedict very much depends on the eggs. It should be cooked to the right texture with the egg yolk flowing out upon slicing apart. Jacob’s Cafe did not fail me. The sesame bun was fragrant and crispy, topped with honey baked bacon, the poached eggs sits nicely is drizzled with their home-made hollandaise sauce and mesclun with balsamic dressing. 

Pancakes with Bacon & Sausages Breakfast
Alison ordered this dish and I had a fair bit to try. The pancakes are fluffy and moist, having it together with bacon, old English sausage, eggs with maple syrup and butter makes it all good. 

Roast Chicken & Bacon with Mango Wrap
Roast Chicken & Bacon with Mango Wrap 
The fist bite was gratifying! You will know why once you tried it yourself. There are lots of ingredients wrapped up all in one. Lettuce, tomato, cucumber,carrot, streaky bacon, mango and roast chicken. The taste was luscious as they cleverly included sweet mango in which refreshes my tastebuds.

Lavacake with Ice Cream
Overall the meal was good considering that it is comfort food and I can taste that each dish is prepared with ample effort.

Australian-Vietnamese Food with the Fat Saigon Boy

Crispy Pig Ears Chips
Dare to try? It is chewy inside but crispy on the outside. Most parts of the pork can be eaten and cooked easily but not the pig ears. The chef is skillful enough to create such a scrumptious dish that goes well with the home-made roasted chilli nut sauce.



Vietnamese fish cakes with green chili nuts and honey salsa
I have never tried fish cakes that are made from minced salmon and what a surprise! The first bite was amazing, not to mention the alluring fragrance and combination of the green chili sauce. Simply heavenly.

Chargrilled lemongrass pork noodles
This is my favourite dish, every bit of it was carefully thought out and tasted so good especially the condiments mixture which was perfect. I can even eat the pork on it's own and not get sick of it because it is so tender carrying a tinge of lemongrass essence which I thought was just nice to my taste buds.

There is no limitations

Finally completed the full marathon after much endurance and sweat. It's all worth it, at the end of the day is the process that matters.


It's all about mental power

While writing this post I am on the way to the Standard Chartered 42km Marathon. I want to share my thoughts today as this year is quite different compared to the past few ones that I have particpated. It is not about the race but the training time. I was left with a short 1 month training which is 5 months lesser than my usual 6 months plan due to the recent haze issue.
This was a test to my limits. Usually 2 weeks before the marathon date I would have completed 15km and 21km concurrently but I did not achieve that this year. I only manage to run 10km at the last week. I should have ample rest and well prepared for the run but the haze restricted my training at East Coast Park. I have no choice but to run on the trackmill in the gym but got really bored after hitting 10km. 10km was my maximum because I don't feel motivated to run at the same spot which gradually makes me feel lazy.
After the haze is gone, it is already the start of October. During that period of time I was very occupied with many food tasting sessions and events. I did not have enough time to train. At that point of time it seems quite impossible to complete the race. So where do I get my confidence from? It is actually all about the inner capabilities. (Mental power) I told myself should I give up so easily? No, when I have set my mind to do it, I will make sure I can finish and succeed, I like the sense of accomplishment, it makes me feel mentally stronger. It is also not my character to run away from an obstacle because there will be more of such unpredictable events in life that I have to overcome in the future.
Although I only took 1 month to train, but if I  manage to complete the race today, it meant that my past few years of consistent gym training and run routines did not go down to drain, my stamina has been kept well. Whether I am able to push my boundaries or not depends on my fitness level and a positive mindset. Today I woke up feeling energised and ready to take on this challenge. All the best to the other runners out there!
