I was free today and apparently my friend Javier was in town from Perth and we decided to head down to Dallas Chicken for a buffet meal. We heard about Dallas Chicken from various blogs and thought it was a pretty good deal, considering that both of us are heavy eaters. Initially we ended up in Chinatown where the outlet was some 2 months ago. A quick on the net lead us to their new place at POMO (former Paradiz centre).

We ordered a total of 7 chicken pieces, 12 drumlets and 6 nuggets as variable buffet items (free-flow). A single buffet meal also consists of a burger (chicken/fish) and a drink (NOT free-flow). The chicken’s texture was very similar to KFC’s original chicken, although the taste was slightly different.

Overall, it’s worthwhile taking the buffet meal if youre really into chicken! The drumlets were exceptionally good, with more spice in them. The burger was similar to the ones you get at western food outlets at hawker centres that cost about ($2++) However, I can say that the fish fillet in the burger was bigger:

As you can see, this is the leftover! I had a short chat with the owner and it seems that they’re strict on food wastage. It’s stated that wastage is chargeable at $25/100 grams. Well, it’s a reasonable deal, and prevents people to order recklessly.

If youre really hungry but you cant afford other buffets like Sakura or Seoul Garden, this is your best bet! Buffet is available everyday from 3-6pm. They’re located at POMO (former Paradiz centre) at Selegie Road, 2nd floor. It’s owned by a Muslim British guy and the food is Halal. If youre not getting the buffet, you can consider other set meals with fries/onion rings.

We were so bloated after the meal.. that we almost needed wheelchairs.. LOL!

I was just strolling along Orchard road earlier this evening at about 10.30pm and a group of people standing around a zebra crossing between Lucky Plaza and the Rolex building caught my eye. I knew something was not right. As I approached the area, I saw a champagne-gold Toyota Altis crashed right into a pedestrian barrier, at the road which has the traffic flow apposite to the car’s direction.

As you can see from the last picture.. imagine if the barrier wasn’t there. The car could have gone for alot more distance, and injured/killed people as well! No relevant civil servants were present at the scene. The driver must be somewhere there disguising himself as a on-looker.. LOL!

Despite this news flooding the “blog-lines” this morning, I had to post this to show my grief for the king whom I started listening from much younger days. His tunes were simply awesome, and I got hooked to all his albums in no time. I started with his Dangerous album, and backtracked to Bad album and also the Thriller album. I moved forward to Blood on the Dance Floor, HIStory and so on.

Paramedics were called to the singer’s home around midday local time on Thursday after he stopped breathing. He was pronounced dead two hours later after arriving at hospital in full cardiac arrest.

Speaking on behalf of Jackson’s family, his brother, Jermaine, said doctors had tried to resuscitate the star for more than an hour without success.

He added: “The family request that the media please respect our privacy during this tough time.”

“And Allah be with you Michael always. I love you.”

Jackson, who had a history of health problems, had been due to begin a series of comeback concerts in the UK on 13 July.

Ok.. I knew many of us saw this coming. From the moment we had out mobile phones from China, followed  by food, vehicles and probably almost anything else. We also know that stuffs made in China suffers from quality and safety. Think about the excess dangerous chemicals asserted into food products!

The economy is so bad and cheap labour is treasured right now. Even planes are being made in China! I understand that safety and quality is paramount when building planes for passenger in particularly. Even a 0.5% crash-rate is considered disastrous for any airline. Well, Airbus decided to assemble its A320 plane in China.

AIRBUS delivered its first plane assembled outside Europe to its Chinese owner yesterday as the world’s largest plane maker and rival Boeing seek growth in major developing markets to combat weak demand at home. Another 10 planes will be assembled this year in China and production there will be ramped up to four aircraft per month by the end of 2011.

Airbus began assembling the A320 in the port city of Tianjin, near Beijing, in September from parts shipped from Europe.

The plane maker has estimated China will need more than 3,000 large aircraft by 2025, including 180 super-jumbo passenger jets.

One of my friends actually called such planes as “Flying Coffins!” Well.. we can only hope for the best. Will you select your airline/tickets based on where the plane is assembled?

I’m sure most Singaporeans are familiar with the yearly Philips Carnival sale. It’s more like a festival here with the Philips development centre bustling with crowds that are busy hooting the best deals from unsold Philips products. It’s usually conducted every September, but this year, it’s in May.

I’m pretty sure this is due to the economic slowdown whereby the consumer sector is greatly affected, thus having unsold products. Also, having large scale sales like this one and the recent IT show boost sales up to figures that are incredible at this period.

For me, It’s simply bad timing. I am looking for an LCD TV, but in a few months time. September would have been ideal, but now I gotta check how cheap it’s gonna be during this sale, before I bring forward my purchase. This sale happens next weekend on the 23-24 May.
