New BTO Service Yard Tap Fix

I have been confounded by the new BTO yard tap. When I bought our new front-load washing machine, the first thing the sales person asked was what kind of tap we have. Well, it looked like this: So it is a special looking tap which is used in most new flats nowadays. Apparently they tried to charge me $20 for an adapter because it is somehow not compatible.

Forget the Prata, Make the Flip to Poori

Prata or paratha is a Singaporean favourite for breakfast but if your Indian food repertoire only includes this dish, boy are you missing out! Besides loving all kinds of Indian food like briyani, naan, all kinds of masala, roti john, murtabak, apom, idly, putu mayam and much more, I was recently introduced to poori. How I Got to Try Poori It was actually by accident. I would usually buy breakfast for my mom and daughter on Sunday mornings and was in the queue for some freshly made prata. However because I was in a hurry and there were plenty...
