CD: Sarah Brightman - Symphony

GENRE: Classical

Since "Harem", I fell in love and started listening to this angelic voice of Sarah Brightman. I love those everlasting hits like "It's A Beautiful Day", "Free", "The War Is Over", "A Whiter Shade of Pale" and "Time to Say Goodbye". Here are the videos to my favourites for your listening and viewing pleasure.
Note: These songs are NOT in this latest album " Symphony".

"Beautiful Day" & "Free"

"The War is Over feat. Kadim Al Sahir" & "A Whiter Shade of Pale"

"Con Te PARTIRO/Time to Say Goodbye feat. Andrea Bocelli" & "Con Te PARTIRO/Time to Say Goodbye"

In this new album "Symphony", 12 completely new tracks are recorded in studio with an orchestra of musicians. It is indeed a highly anticipated album of beautiful songs with spectacular performance by Sarah Brightman. A truely remarkeable experience listening to this album in the night. The song "Symphony" is a lovely song that is worth 5 stars on your iPod, while "Sarah Qui" is Sarah Brightman's version to the famous song "There You'll Be" by Faith Hill in the movie soundtrack of "Pearl Harbour". Inside this album includes: Audio CD, Picture booklet, 3 post cards, A2 poster and EMI promotional flyers.

"Symphony" PREVIEW

"Sarah Brightman's Symphony, get it today and indulge yourself in the best female vocalist of our era!"

EATZ: Bulgogi Bibimbap & Kimchi Ramen @ Togi

Having visited Togi Korean Restaurant earlier for the "Devil's Brew" Casserole, I got addicted to the authentic Korean cuisine served by Togi. I decided to treat myself to a Korean dinner. This time, I went easy on the orders and chose something that is regular and simple, Bulgogi Bibimbap and Kimchi Ramen. Read on for my take on these dishes during my second visit at Togi Korean Restaurant (Mosque Street).

Togi Korean Restaurant

11 Mosque Street
Singapore 059491
Tel: 62210830
Closed on Sundays

The starters were slightly different during each visit, at least different from my first visit. This time, they served (from left to right) kimchi, chillied potato slices, leek?, chillied anchovies, chillied zucchini slices and chillied tofu cubes.

Bulgogi Bibimbap
Specially marinated and barbequed sliced beef, bulgogi beef, blended with soft fragrant rice and fresh green lettuce in a hotstone bowl. Diners can choose to have their bibimbap blended by the staff or by themselves. Each table has their bibimbap sauce for self-service. I had a bit too much making my rice a tad too sweet.

Kimchi Ramen
Nothing to spectacular or fanciful about this kimchi ramen. It it just the right level of spicyness in a tasty kimchi soup.

If you are looking for good and authentic Korean meal, Togi Korean Restaurant is the place to visit. The prices here at Togi are reasonable and the friendly service is prompt despite an always crowded restaurant. During my second visit, I had simple regular Korean dishes instead of the "Devil's Brew" Casserole. I think this can possibly top my list in favourite Korean restaurants, replacing Janchijib and, a much adored Seoul Yummy™ which topped my regular list as well. I will definitely and have been recommending Togi Korean Restaurant to my friends and readers. It is a must visit, must try!

VIDEO: Angela 张韶涵 - 百变张韶涵世界巡迴演唱会 Live@Taipei

Live @ Taipei
Live Performance / Concert

I am such a huge fan of Angela 张韶涵. She has such a clear and wonderful voice and lovely big eyes. I would love to see her in person or live in performance. This DVD include performances in Taipei, which does not include new songs from album "ANG 5.0". Sadly, her first world tour concert here in Singapore has been postponed due to a heart condition. I hope she concentrate on getting well again. Anyway, at the meantime, I shall enjoy her live performance on DVD. The performance is spectacular, however, I was rather irritated by the poor editing where pictures were superimposed over the video. Nevertheless, still a good performance. Most importantly, it is Angela 张韶涵.

REVOLTECH No.009 EVA-03 Production Model [REHASHED]

With the new EVANGELION: 1.0 Movie,
it sure is worth it to rehash this earlier gallery of REVOLTECH No.009 EVA-03 Production Model.

Production Model
2nd August 2007
Equipment: Canon IXUS40
Photography and Editing by William Tan

View complete gallery

Built in the United States by NERV Second Branch in Massachusetts, USA, Evangelion Unit 03 is one of two Units built with the Second Production Model design. It is the sister Unit of Unit 04. The United States' government insisted on having the rights to build Unit 03 and Unit 04. A few minor changes were made between the first and second Production Models. Unit 03's color was unique, with much darker plates than any other Eva. The head was oddly shaped, too, with a rounded top and exaggerated chin. The pilot assigned to it was Toji Suzuhara, but in transit to Japan, it was possessed by the thirteenth Angel, Bardiel, which appeared as a cloud. As Bardiel, it was savagely torn apart by Unit 01, after the control of Unit 01 was switched from Shinji to the Dummy Plug system, designed to simulate Rei Ayanami as the pilot. Toji, the pilot, is severely injured in the anime, but in the manga he actually dies.
