Put Chai Ko In Singapore

"Where do you find Put Chai Ko ( 缽仔糕 ) in Singapore?" my friend from Hong Kong asked me.
I finally found it at the Honolulu Cafe at Westgate.

It comes in two flavour, normal sugar and brown sugar ($2.40). The brown sugar really tastes better than the normal sugar one.

These are rare in Singapore, probably because Singaporeans prefer Chwee Kueh. Haha.

Bobii Fruitii Milk Tea Review

I ordered the Green Milk Tea from Bobii Fruitii. 
Unlike other bubble tea, it came with a lid that can be easily opened, like those you buy from Kopitiam. 

This bubble tea really tastes quite different from other milk tea out there. 
It is too milky for my liking. 
Most likely I won't buy it again. 

Rating 2/5

Winnie's Bubble Tea Review

This is another popular bubble tea from Taiwan

Winnie's open its branch in One North.
I tried the Black Sugar Oolong Milk Tea ($3.10/$.4.10) and Black Sugar Milk Tea ($3.10/$4.10).
While you can't choose the sugar level, you can choose the level of ice. Default is 50% ice.
The bubble tea comes with a cute plastic bag which can be easily reusable.

I find that the Black Sugar Oolong Milk Tea tastes nicer than the  Black Sugar Milk Tea and strangely I prefer this to the Bubble Tea from Tiger Sugar and I don't have to wait for 1 hour for my drink :D

Tiger Sugar Review

They have been raving about this bubble tea for a long time, and I finally got to try it yesterday.

The best seller is the Brown Sugar Boba Milk with Cream Mousse ($5.30). It really takes 1 hour for our number to be called, because 'they ran out of cups.'

We are supposed to shake 15 times before drinking it.
Color is really quite beautiful :D
I have to say that this bubble tea tastes different from the other brown sugar bubble tea out there.
The Boba or Pearls are quite chewy and fun to chew.
The milk tea is really unique.

Will I drink it again? Probably not because of the high price tag - $5.30
I would rather pay $2.90 for a happy Green Milk Tea from Koi :P

We all know earning money is not easy? Especially these days when prices are going up? Pay remain stagnant.. we want more money.. water prices are going up by 30% can u believe it?

2. Be a freelancer
Take up freelance jobs (such as writing articles, coding, translation jobs) from different freelance websites at your own time, own location. Here are some freelance websites

Top 20 richest men in the world vs Top 20 richest men in Singapore

Here is the list of top 20 richest men in the world in 2016:

 Here's the list of top 20 richest men in Singapore in 2016:

Comparing both of them we can see that while source of wealth for the richest men in the world are through the products they produce, most rich men in Singapore got their wealth from Investments - both in real estates and financial investments.

Why is this so?

  • Is it because of the lack of creativity in Singapore to produce world changing products that change the world?
  • Or is it because of the land scarce Singapore that enable people to get rich through real estate investments?
  • Or is it because Singapore, being one of world's financial centre, is more appealing to investors?

But can we as individual do?
