OHM / Shimono Cyclone Vacuum Cleaner

OHM / Shimono Vacuum Cleaner Sweeper
Hi-Tech Cyclone Series

Our robot iCLEBO may be doing a decent job cleaning up the daily hair and dust in the whole house on a programmed basis. However, there are always spots and corners that are not accessed by the robot.
This calls for the need of a handheld vacuum cleaner.
Since our old Philips is losing battery life and the suction power isn't exactly strong, getting the reputed OHM Vacuum cleaner sweeper makes sense. Also marketed under the brand Shimono, this handheld vacuum cleaner uses a silent yet powerful pump to give you high suction power! How about sucking up a dollar coin? No problem at all. This is attributed to the cyclone suction technique deployed by this vacuum cleaner.
The OHM Vacuum cleaner sweeper comes with a comprehensive set of accessories:
2x extension pipes
1x swing brush head
1x 360 round brush head
1x bed brush head
1x crevice suction tool
1x AC adaptor with indicator light
1x spare filter
All accessories are washable.
2300Pa vacuum power
Changing 8 hr
The most powerful handheld vacuum cleaner yet.

Battle of Wanton Mee

Between Ang Moh Wanton Mee (top) and Koka Wanton Mee (bottom), there can only be one winner!
Will it be the one that is graced by long queues all day long at Joo Chiat?
Or will it be the one that has no queue but serve only 2h pre-orders from 8pm onwards at North Bridge Road?

Ang Moh has good noodle texture and generous portions of petite peppery pork wantons.
Koka has same good noodle texture with additional shredded chicken and mushrooms to up its worth. The sauce and wanton is the likes of Pontian style, mixed with solefish. Not to forget the extra crunch from the chestnut bits.

The verdict is clear without dispute. Koka wins hands down!
Sorry no more money can buy you the wanton mee. No phone call pre-ordering as well. So you want the best, you got to go earlier to pre-order and return 2h later to collect. If you are lucky, you might be served earlier. At least at 8pm, there is no crowd in the quiet hawker centre.
