Junior Master Chef

This is such an inspiring show. At the age of 8-12, I don't remember myself knowing how to order a dish in a restaurant; I don't know what the difference between rare, medium well or well done. And all these young ones here are cooking a risotto, stewing a lamb, marinating a wild rabbit, baking a lemon and wildberries tart. And, I believe most of the kids here now, still don't know how to order a dish or cooking a pack of maggie noodle but busy playing games or attending endless of tuition classes most of the time. That's rather sad.


kuanth X Zouk X dr.Martens

This October, Singapore’s nightlife Mecca Zouk has tied up exclusively with Dr. Martens to present a unique collection of the latter’s iconic1461 3-Eye shoe specially designed by 20 of the scene’s players,
trailblazers, creatives & thinkers alike in celebration of Zouk’s 20... glorious years of music, dance and culture and Dr. Martens’ #FIRST 1461 3-Eye Shoe Customization in Singapore.

In this union of two world-class lifestyle brands brought together through their mutual love for style, opening minds and pushing boundaries, each personality was given a pair of limited edition Dr.
Martens 1461 3-Eye shoe - with their signature stitching in green instead of the iconic yellow - on which they can express their feelings toward the internationally-renowned club, incorporating the Zouk
identity on their blank canvases with artistic freedom & creative liberation, thereby adding a quaint and personal touch to each design.

The footwear, together with photos shot by acclaimed photographer Ivanho Harlim, will then be exhibited in Zouk, a mini art gallery in itself on 7 October 2011 and will be auctioned off post-event from 8 to 25 October 2011, with all proceeds going to Zouk’s adopted charity for 2011: Make-A-Wish Foundation®.

It's such a shame that someone from KL like me have never been to this lovely place that's not very far from my house in KL. FRIM, the name in full would be Forest Research Institute Malaysia. This is the place when you can easily feel yourself as part of the nature, the energy there is so pure you can almost hear your inner self talking to you, or simply feeling all your cells being recharged or revitalized.

When you are in KL next time, forget about Jalan Alor, Mid Valley or Bangsar, head all the way to FRIM to enjoy an easy breezy morning walk!
