Deli Turk

Iceman and I went to Deli Turk at Suntec (next to Kuishin Bo) for dinner last night.  The food was great!  Service was excellent too.  Here’re the pics of what we had.   Chick Pea salad for starters.  The chick peas came with olive oil dressing and seasoned with dill, parsley and spring onions.  Very […]

Better Safe Than Sorry

My dad, who’s an extremely risk averse person, used to warn against sitting directly below fans.  I used to do that too… but stopping being so careful as “nothing ever happened”.  Well, this article shows that… my dad isn’t that paranoid after all. ============== FAN FALLS ON COUPLE Wife recalls fan falling on her and […]
