Ways to Reduce Waste: Action for Earth – Global Youth Summit

Last month, I was fortunate enough to be invited by Hemispheres Foundation to the inaugural Actions for Earth – Global Youth Summit 2014. Although gone are my days as Young Environment Envoy with the National Environment Agency and Young ChangeMakers with National Youth Council, my attendance at  the closing ceremony had sparkled off my spirit of environment protection and youth activism once again.

Held on 15-18 January 2014, the theme for the Global Youth Summit  was “Take Action for Earth, Waste No”. I’m highly impressed by the turn out with close to 450 participants from more than 65 institutions in 13 countries. Apart from Singapore, Vietnam and Indonesia sent the most delegates. And there were even participants from Oman present at the youth camp.

Environmental youth activists aged 12 to 21 years old were given an intensive four-day programme with field trips to Singapore’s leading facilities – NEWater plant, Marina Barrage, Semakau Landfill and Incineration Plant.

The highlight of the Summit was the announcement of the prize winners. Attended by Guest-of-Honour, Member of Parliament, Tampines GRC & Chairman of MCCY Government Parliamentary Committee, Mr Baey Yam Keng.  The top prize in the senior category of City Developments Limited (CDL) – Actions for Earth Award goes to the team “Once Upon A Cow” from Vietnam.

Team leader 18-year-old Dang Minh Hang’s proposal to use empty milk cartons to repair leaking roofs in Vietnam won the heart of the judges for being practical and innovative solution to the problems of overflowing landfills and leaking roofs long endured by the poor living in her country’s rural areas.

IMG_8011

Most roofs in rural Vietnam are made from non-durable materials such as zinc, alabaster slabs or attap. Tetra Pak packaging has an aluminum coating, being waterproof, makes it the best solution for patching leaking roofs.

The next Action for Earth – Global Youth Summit is planned to be held in August 2014. Interested youth activists and schools may contact Hemispheres Foundation for more information.

Passionate youths committed to the goal of sustainable development in their institutional and personal capacities, may contact National Environment Agency (NEA) to find out more about the Youth Environment Envoys (YEEs) programme.

The Young ChangeMakers (YCM) grant supports youth-initiated projects that benefit the Singapore community and society. It also helps to empower youth as decision makers to evaluate projects and mentor project applicants. Find out how you can take actions today, here.

IMG_7338

Last month, I was lucky to be present when Ramen Champion opened their second branch at MegaBox, Kowloon Bay in Hong Kong. The highlight of the day was the Ramen “Face-off” between the pretty and petite competitive food challenger, Tomoko Miyake and the TVB stars.

Leading the entourage of popular Hong Kong TV celebrities and radio personalities was one of my favorite actor, Eric Tsang. And Koji Tashiro, the CEO of Menya Koji Group was also there to take part for the eating challenge.

Fast forward one month later, and I’m excited that Ramen Champion Pte Ltd is launching the Ramen Big Eater Challenge as part of the Food Challenge Asia Championship which involves Ramen Champion outlets in Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand.

Details of Singapore Contest:

Qualifying Round

Time: 3.00pm to 5.00pm

Location: Ramen Champion @ Great World City (1 Kim Seng Promenade, Great World City, #01-21/22, Singapore 237994)

Here’s some questions which you probably want to ask Ramen Champion about the Big Eater Challenge:

Will the ramen be piping hot when served?

During the contest, the ramen is prepared on the spot and the chefs will try to control the temperature of the ramen broth so it won’t too hot when it’s served. It won’t be piping hot but it would not be served cold as there’s the need to maintain the quality of ramen. Side bowls will be provided so participants can use them to cool off the ramen.

Is it okay for non local to register for the event?

The organiser accepts non-local as long as they are residing in Singapore and not tourists. For example, foreign students or working professionals are eligible.

Must the soup be finished? Do I also have to finish the sides like egg and seaweed?

With regards to the contest, there is not a must to finish the soup during the contest and the organiser will only be serving noodles and broth for the ramen.

How big is the bowl of ramen and what style will be served?

The organiser are using the regular size bowl which is available at the restaurant and the ramen served will be Tonkotsu style.

Is the ramen served Halal/ Vegetarian?

The ramen served is neither Halal nor vegetarian. Also, the broth for both stalls is Tonkotsu style which means it is made from pork and pork bones, and may contain chicken and/or fish. It does NOT contain BEEF and LAMB.

Can I bring my own seasoning?

Contestants are discouraged from bringing their own seasoning.

Will water be provided?

The organiser will be providing ice water for during the contest and green tea will be served at the waiting areas.

What is the minimum age to join this contest?

The minimum age to join is 18 years old and above. All participants will be required to fill up an indemnity form together with the registration form and fee.

Can I register on behalf of my friend for the ramen eating contest?

Preferably the participant should come in person to register as he/she is required to fill up an indemnity form along with the registration form and registration fee. However, you may write in to the organiser at ramenchampion@gmail.com and they will review on a case to case basis.

How this contest works and how do I qualify the Finals?

The format of the contest will be based on the number of regular size bowls a participant can finish within 15 minutes and that will qualify him/her into the final round. The participants who can finish the most number of ramen will enter into the final round on 14 November 2013 at Great World City.

Do I still get my vouchers if I don’t qualify for the Finals? What vouchers will be given?

All participants will be given the $30 cash vouchers regardless if they qualified into the final round. The cash vouchers will be sponsored by Komars F&B Pte Ltd and can be used for restaurants such as Daikokuya, Bishamon, Menya Koji and Benten Café. There is no minimum spending required but it is not applicable for set meals or other promotional items.

Will there be any other prizes for the finalist other than the grand prize?

Currently, the organiser has decided only the grand prize of $10,000 will be given but they are working on the details of other prizes, if any. Ramen Champion would like everyone to walk away happily and hence $30 vouchers will be given to every participant.

Fit.Right.In – Challenge in Progress

WANTED: The man in the picture below has been charged with physical abuse infliced on the owner of this blog. Warning: Do not approach him for personal training unless you are committed to improve yourself – to become fitter and healthier; look better with more confidence.

007x - Copy

Pardon me for the lack of blog posts recently as I have been busy getting my fat ass kicked by my personal trainer, Jensen Arabejo from Physical ABuse Fitness Center. Into my third week of training, we did a quick check on my weight and I’m happy with the results although my abs are still not showing.

About my trainer: Jensen is trained to be nurse but his love for fitness and sports led him to become certified physical trainer. As an athlete, he enjoys challenges and extreme sports. His passion in sports and fitness is the reason why he is able to motivate and push his clients for the benefits of reaching their own goals. Prior to working in Singapore, he was based in Macau as a fitness trainer and his expertise includes weight loss & toning, strengthening, weight gain and sports conditioning especially for basketball and swimming.

My training began as once a week, one hour per session work out with Jensen. Each session starts with warm-up exercise follows by two sets of repetitive circuit training. During the week, I also attended the various group classes with Tiffany, because the best way to lose weight is to combine cardiovascular exercises with weights training.

DSC03479

Tiffany and I went for Drums Alive, the latest calorie-burning workout using drum sticks and Swiss balls. The well-coordinated rhythmic class lets us fulfill our rock star fantasy while burning fats at the same time. Besides this unique group exercise, we also attended two classes of Zumba together. The first was conducted by Jasmine who incorporated K-pop songs and dance moves to the work out. For me, the moves were more of an advance level and my two left feet were trying hard to keep up. Thank goodness the Saturday Zumba classes conducted by Ridhuan consists of much simple moves but are of high impact, causing me to perspire more.

What I really love about Physical Abuse Fitness Center are the friendly personal trainers and crowd. Most people who go to Physical Abuse know their personal fitness goal, and the spirit of camaraderie towards health and fitness is very motivating. Even though this boutique gym is not as big as the major fitness chain, it has all the equipments we need and we seldom need to wait in order to use the facilities unlike when I was working out in CF or FF.

Losing weight is a balance between our input and output, simply working out once or twice a week is not sufficient. Diet control is another key area we need to note. During this period of challenge, I cut down on carbohydrates and feed on fish soup or Yong Tau Foo for dinner after work out.

Although every hour of physical training with Jensen feels like eternity, but time does fly by quickly. It’s nearing the end of this Fit Right In challenge. So, who do you think will win this challenge? Check out Tiffany’s blog post here and watch out for the release of result soon!

Fit.Right.In – Challenge Accepted

4 weeks, 4 personal trainings, 2 bloggers but only 1 winner. Who will be the ultimate winner of Physical ABuse fitness center’s Fit Right In Challenge? In this part 1 of 3 series, Malcolm shares his reasons why he embarks on this physical challenge and his confident on winning this get fit assignment.

PhysicalAbusefbcover

Turning three zero next year, I make a personal promise to get fit and look fab before age catches up and my body metabolism rate slows down. My resolution for this year is to get back in shape, but being occupied with studies and blogging at the first half of the year, and now with professional work and writing as my main excuses for not exercising.

It was a wake up call when I received the invitation from Physical ABuse to challenge Tiffany Yong to shape up.

I have not been a stranger to weight loss, in fact during my Basic Military Training (BMT) course I was able to tone up and look fit. Few years ago, through a life coaching project, I was able to lose 7 kg in 7 weeks. Although right now, procrastination and laziness are my biggest hurdles to get rid of my love handles.

physical abuse profile malcolm

The benefits of workout include staying healthy, looking good and feeling confident; as popular meme says, “I don’t workout to be healthy, I do it to look good naked”. Though it may sound NSFW (not safe for work) but it’s still a form of motivation.

physical abuse profile tiffany

Physical intimacy aside, physical training is hard work! When I did the physical assessment and found out that I only need to lose 4.5 kg of fats, I was over-confident.  And during the fitness assessment, I almost fainted after 10 minutes on the step machine.

IMG-20130807-WA0015 IMG-20130807-WA0023

The other concern is that I’m recovering from my left wrist injury. Right now, I’m unable to bend my wrist hence exercises that require pushing motion, like push up, are not recommended.  This gives my personal trainer,  Jenson additional challenge to create a workout that is suitable for me.

Even with these internal and external factors standing in my path, I am determined to win this fat burning challenge. Follow my live tweets from @MalcolmSunny or #FRIChallenge for real time updates about this challenge. Also check out Tiffany’s updates via @tiffanyyongwt and her blog post here.

I hate Chinese songs and when given a choice, I would normally sing English songs at karaoke sessions with friends. Besides being linguistically challenged  in Mandarin, very often I feel that Chinese songs are always so melancholic in nature.

New Contenders Storm Ramen Champion Bugis+

Last Thursday, Ramen Champion at Bugis+ welcomed their 3 new ramen chefs with a grand promotion of 100 bowls of ramen and 50% off throughout the day. An impressive queue lined up along level 4 of Bugis+ waited anxiously for the store to be opened on 4 July 2013.

1005420_567405723340827_971846298_n

It’s reality television in real life. Every year, this popular Japanese food venue will invite some of the best Ramen masters and chefs in Japan to Singapore for a stint of one year. Their goal is to impress the diners with their scrumptious and authentic taste of Japan and influence the customers to vote for them.

Despite being popular among its followers, in June 2013, Ramen Champion bid farewell to Menya Iroha, Tai-sho-ken and Aoyama and welcome three new contenders – Muso, Buta God and Menban Yamagishi Kazuo on 1 July 2013.

MENBAN YAMAGISHI KAZUO is named after the legendary inventor of Tsukemen (dipping noodles) – Kazuo Yamagishi is given the title “Master of Ramen”. This shop is opened by his successor who follows Yamagishi’s secret recipe but with his new style. Probably the closest to Tai-sho-ken’s ramen so if you miss it, do try it and compare.

MUSO is the No.1 Ramen Champion 2012 (Hong Kong). This unrivaled chef with outlets in Tokyo and Hong Kong comes to Singapore for a new challenge. Chef Masaaki Kawamura’s ramen broth holds plenty of pork fat, which makes it rich and unique in flavor.

1016226_567408076673925_321703347_n

Brave, new contender BUTA GOD specializes in pork ramen. Chef Mamoru Kanaya matches sliced marinated pork belly and poached egg to create the perfect combination of the slightly sweet Tonkotsu broth. Try the Extra Pork Ramen to satisfy your stomach.

941461_567431586671574_1992346196_n

Ramen Champion held a grand promotion on 4 July 2013 offering free bowls of ramen to the first 100 customers. Needless to say, queuing is one of our nation’s favourite pastime and when there is free food there is bound to have a large crowd.

When I reached Bugis+ level 4 that morning the queue had extended to Crystal Jade HK Café. And I heard from the restaurant manager that some people were in the queue as early as 9 o’clock. (Did they think it’s free ramen for breakfast?)

These are six ramens given out for free (100 bowls) and 50% throughout the day:

Ikkousha: Ajitama Ramen – S$13.50

Gantetsu: HOKKAIDO Tonkotsu Ramen – S$11.00

Buta God Tonkotsu: Tonkotsu Sukiyaki Ramen – S$12.00

The prices listed are before the discount. For me, I choose BARIO’s Ajitamen Ramen because I feel it’s the most value for money for this promotion. I also had a taste of the two champions – MUSO and IKKOUSHA.

Delifrance Celebrates 30 Years in Asia with Michelin Star Sandwich

To commemorate 30 years of authentic French bakery fare in Asia, Delifrance partnered with renowned 1-star Michelin chefs Jacques and Laurent Pourcel to launch its first-ever Michelin sandwich “Le Paris-Singapore”. 

DSC03322

When I received the invitation to attend the launch, I knew it was going to be a fun experience. It’s a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with a Michelin-starred chef and to top it off, we got a hands-on lesson on how to put the sandwich together and the inspiration behind the creation.

DSC03330 DSC03326

Le Paris-Singapore is a special sandwich. Inspired by their travel experiences in Asia, it is specially created by 1-star Michelin chefs Laurent and Jacques Pourcel for Delifrance. This is not the first time the twins, who run the famous restaurant le Jardin des Sens in Montpellier, France, collaborated with the French bakery. In 2010, when the chef twins were chosen as ambassadors to represent French gastronomy at the World Expo in Shanghai, they had chosen to use Delifrance breads for the international event.

DSC03331 DSC03337

“When we were looking for a supplier for this unique event, we wanted to combine quality and French know-how. Delifrance’s breads and viennoiseries were a natural choice,” recalled Jacques, who was in Singapore to launch the new creation Le Paris-Singapore.

In an artisan mix of French bakery and Asian flavour, Le Paris-Singapore is buttered with mayonnaise and oyster spread, layered with a bed of French baby spinach and Thai chili roast chicken, with Wakame (Japanese algae) and pineapple slices to complete the taste.

DSC03340 DSC03338 DSC03334

Specially imported from France, Delifrance’s French stone-baked rustic baguette spent 10 hours in the oven; baked to perfection, light and soft inside with a delicate aroma of fresh cream and sweet almond.

“We are delighted to celebrate three decades of Delifrance in Singapore,” said Alain Leduc, Franchise Manager of Delifrance Headquarters in Paris. “Delifrance was the first French-themed cafe to introduce authentic French bakery products in Singapore. With the launch of Le Paris-Singapore, with its mix of artisan French authentic bakery and an Asian flavour, we are here to introduce another slice of French gastronomy to Singaporeans, especially our long-time supporters who have grown up with the brand over the past 30 years.”

Completmenting the new Michelin-starred sandwich, Delifrance has also partnered with French beverage company Monin to introduce two special sparkling drinks, Le Spicy Mangue Collins and Pink Grapefruit & Elderflower Spritz, which customers can pair with Le Pasir-Singapore sandwich.

DSC03307 DSC03308

Le Spicy Mangue Collins is a thirst quenching sparkling blend of mango and lime with a slight hint of chili. Pink Grapefruit & Elderflower Spritz is a light and refreshing combination of ripe pink grapefruit and subtle elderflower.

DSC03344 DSC03314

Le Pasir-Singapore is available a la carte at $10.80 or enjoy it with Le Spicy Mangue Collins or Pink Grapefruit  & Elderflower Spritz for just $12.80. The sparkling drinks are also available a la carte at $5.00 each.
