I

was out shopping the other day when I spotted the first lot of mooncakes out on display at bakeries and confectioneries. Almost immediately, my heart did a small flip. My eyes nearly twinkled when I saw the pictures of our mooncake spread this issue.

“Mid Autumn Festival is here again!” There are many who are excited at the thought of bak kwa and pineapple tarts during New Year. As much as I like them, Mid Autumn Festival has always been a little closer to heart for as long as I could remember. Maybe it was the story of Chang-e flying off to the moon with only a rabbit as her companion, leaving her husband behind or the myriad of colors, lights and lanterns seen during this period but this festival has always been a little more romantic and delightful to me than any other. One of my favorite activities as a child was strolling around at night with a brand new lantern for the year; one that was big, bright, colorful and most hopefully, one that could blink! An impressive lantern was an important thing to a child who would eventually parade it in front of other kids. There may even be a sense of camaraderie between kids who meet each other along such strolls despite the friendly rivalry. Even if it was just paper lanterns that we were playing with, there was something magical in lighting up a candle and watching it glow in the dark of night. There are times I even contemplate buying a lantern to relive those days again. It’s a real pity that I don’t see as many children doing it these days. Every year, I would look out for kids and their parents who might continue to observe this practice but the numbers are dwindling. Even the number of lanterns displayed at shops is much lower than before. I’d be real sad if this sight disappears completely one day. And of course, the other reason for my addiction to Mid Autumn Festival would be mooncakes. Thanks to the creative efforts of chefs, the humble mooncake which was once said to have supported a revolution has evolved from plain lotus seed paste filling to an endless variety of shapes, colors, ingredients and flavors. There are people who think that this may have further commercialized the festival. To me, the important thing is that the continued demand for mooncakes, commercialized or not, keeps the festival alive.

Out of the B ox

f you are a fan of Japanese bento meals, you’ve probably flipped through menus and found bentos that looked salivating but a little off the perfect combination you preferred at times. Chances are, you’ve made a comment like “I don’t really need that slice of fruit or the salad” or “if only I could have this main and that side dish instead”.

On a diet? Fill your box with light side dishes. Looking for a hearty meal? Add in a main instead. Feeling ravenous? Order as many boxes in any combinations you’d like. The good news is: prices start from as affordable as $9 for a bento of 4 side dishes of your choice. If you are up for a toast with some friends, there is also a list of wines available starting from over $30 a bottle.

Well now you can. At Shinsen, the new build-your-own-bento eatery in town, you are given the freedom to think – and eat - out of the box.

Despite keeping prices accessible, Shinsen strives to maintain food quality. Dishes are prepared on a daily basis with no MSG added during cooking. The restaurant also employs sous vide, a water oven cooking technique that cooks food slowly over many hours, resulting in succulent meats that are cooked evenly without losing its natural juices. We were also impressed with Shinsen’s clear acrylic bento box design which is not only convenient for packing but also presentable for corporate lunches and home parties. One is also able to pack the hot and cold dishes separately which makes refrigeration and reheating a breeze.

With branches located at Novena Square and The Sail, Shinsen believes in serving up a variety of quality Japanese food at affordable prices in a casual and cheery dining atmosphere. Each meal begins with an empty box which you can fill up according to your preferences from a selection of traditional Japanese fare including mains such as fresh sashimi, grilled items, sushi, burgers and curry. Side dishes include classics like Oden (Stewed Beancurd and Fishcake), Smoked Duck with Cucumber and Miso as well as salads prepared with Japanese dressings such as Gomaae (savory sesame seed dressing) and Sunomono (refreshing vinegar dressing).

This is one restaurant we don’t mind being a little boxed in. In fact, the more boxes, the merrier! Shinsen @ Novena Square 238, Thomson Road #01-62/63 Novena Square Singapore 307683 Tel: 6352 8278 Shinsen @ The Sail 4 Marina Boulevard #01-33 The Sail @ Marina Bay Singapore 018986 Tel: 6509 0685

Crispy Fish Skin with Congee Soup

T

he Chinese name for this dish literally translates to “Congee for Fairies with Crispy Fish Skin”.

If the name is anything to go by, the addictive fragrance that hit our senses the moment the dish came to the table was certainly heavenly. This unforgettable aroma results from the addition of green beans into the congee made with stock. The crispy fish skin is made from eel and we loved how each piece was thin and fried to crisp perfection without being too oily. The congee further reduces any sense of oiliness when you dip the fish skin into it before tasting. It is hard to put your chopsticks down with this dish on the table!

Sandwiched between two fragrant Paninipressed buns and fresh vegetables, the pork patty is freshly made daily and fried to a crusty brown. However, it remains so succulent that the meat’s natural juices ooze out of its crispy exterior when you slice through the patty.

ost women want to be beautiful and when it comes to beauty, few professions evoke conflicting emotions of envy and jealousy amongst women more than models and beauty pageant winners do.

We recently had the opportunity to catch up with Miss Jieun Yu, winner of Miss University Korea 2009, World Miss University 2010 and World Supermodel 2011. The bright and friendly beauty, who also holds a Masters’ Degree in International Commerce and speaks fluent English and French, tells us about her life behind the cloak of mystery and glamour.

How did you get into modeling and pageants? It just happened! I did not have intentions to go into modeling even though I had been approached by modeling agencies. I was more interested in finishing my studies so I was modeling on a freelance basis like a part-time job. My friends recommended me to join beauty pageants so I just decided to give it a try.

How did you feel when you went for your first pageant? My first pageant was the Miss University Korea competition. I couldn’t enjoy myself during that pageant because it was very competitive and I didn’t have the opportunity to make friends. However, when I moved on to the international pageant, I felt more relaxed, learnt many things and made a lot of friends.

Do you make any special dietary changes before competing? While preparing for pageants, I take less carbohydrates and more protein as well as tofu. I also love dairy products such as milk, yoghurt and cheese. I believe milk is good for your skin so I take it every day. Professional models are really thin and can’t eat a lot. One of my bookers did subtly ask me to lose some weight but I don’t think it’s healthy to be too skinny. I prefer a more feminine look and I really like to eat. Instead of dieting, I prefer to exercise.

How do you keep in shape? I like swimming and yoga. I did go to gym before the World Supermodel pageant but it was too intense. I prefer something more relaxing where I can enjoy myself such as jogging outside instead of doing it on a treadmill. When I was preparing for a pageant, I would exercise everyday for about an hour and half.


l Beauty Queen Some people think that models and beauty pageant contestants are all about beauty and no brains. What do you think? I have so many friends who are very intelligent, well-educated and beautiful both inside and outside. They come from good family backgrounds so they have fine manners and are very well-behaved. There are even lawyers and professionals. Modeling is quite a superficial industry but there are also differences, especially between part-time and full-time models. Part-time models have the space to pursue a life and career outside modeling but it is a different story for full-time models.

What are some of the interesting experiences you had during the pageants? The World Miss University international pageant was held in Korea. Most of the European girls were new to Korean culture and food so I felt more like a host than a competitor. The first dish we ate was Bibimbap and they thought it was weird to mix up the rice when it had been served so beautifully. They love Korean food because it’s healthy with lots of vegetables and not too oily so they thought they could lose some weight in the process. I made a lot of good friends from the pageant. One of my best friends is from Marta and I have friends from Slovakia, Astonia, Canada and so on. I even visited some of them and spent a month at their homes.

Has joining pageants changed your life? I learnt how to connect with people from different cultures and levels. It opened my eyes to new cultures and new people. I didn’t know about Marta or Slovakia before the pageant nor did I think I would visit these countries one day. Interestingly, there are many similarities between Asians and Eastern Europeans so it was very easy to communicate with each other. I also feel stronger than before. When I was in China for the World Supermodel competition, it was very stressful as we had to move around and change hotels very often so I’ve learnt to deal with stress better.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time? I am about to embark on a job that is related to global marketing and I hope to become an expert in my area of work!

Shopping & Entertainment

Mini City W

e’ve all heard about the long jams at the Causeway heading to Johor Bahru. Yet, Singaporeans continue to flock across the straits regularly. Favorable exchange rates and the wide selection of shopping, entertainment and dining choices have made Johor a good choice for those who are looking for a quick, no-fuss weekend getaway. Sutera Utama, a new shopping and entertainment centre about 15-20 minutes drive away from the Causeway is gaining popularity with Singaporeans and locals alike. The area currently consists of Sutera Mall, a mega-mall with hundreds of shops offering both local and international brands as well as numerous shops located in shophouses around the mall. The mall also runs family friendly events regularly. To maintain its peaceful environment, the management has installed 24-hour security cameras as well as guards who patrol the area all day. For the coming weekend, we suggest making a trip down to Sutera Utama with your friends or family for a weekend of non-stop eating, shopping and fun!

o serve pork in a country where the meat is frowned upon by the majority of the population may sound like a risky decision to some, but for the owners of AnMour Café, a new American dining café in Johor, this was a route they decided to venture into from their love and desire to share American cuisine with their patrons.

The idea arose when one of the café’s owners, Mr Edward Lim, visited San Francisco and fell in love with the generous and juicy burgers in America. Being a foodie and trained chef, he had the opportunity to learn the ropes directly from the chefs there. Together with three friends who were also chefs, they started AnMour Café within the entertainment and business hub of Skudai in Johor. The café serves up a classic American menu in a casual and cheery setting which is friendly and welcoming. The food portions are generally American-sized but if anyone is up for a challenge, you can request for burgers as heavy as 2kg! Choices include pork, beef, chicken as well as a mixture of pork and

Dine Like You’re in

beef which the café fondly calls glam burgers. Notably, freshly made burger patties are used instead of frozen patties. Hence, the meat remains tender and juicy. The buns have also been baked according to the café’s requirements so they are soft and uniquely fragrant. For those who are not really into burgers, there are also other choices on the menu such as ribs, steaks, pastas and more. The café also runs thematic promotions from time to time which would see new menu items during promotion periods. Fancy polishing off a giant burger with your friends this weekend?

e

Here From: anncc@mail.com To: irenecc@mail.com Subject: Postcard from Bintan!

Hey Mum, I tried calling earlier but you guys weren’t at home so I’m sending you an email before I head to bed. Sorry for sending a note so late. I was out the whole afternoon and just got back from a fantastic 2 hour massage at the spa. I bet Lisa would feel very envious if she knew. She loves spas, doesn’t she? I got into Bintan this morning and I’m staying in a cozy room at the Nirwana Bintan Resort Hotel. Our global conference is held here this year. The hotel is actually part of a much bigger area (330 hectares from what I found out from the staff earlier) so there are other Nirwana properties and villas as well. I was really tired from working overtime whole of last week but I felt more relaxed the moment I stepped onto the island. Remember we talked about the newspaper article where it was said that every country and city has its own smell? Bintan smells of trees and fresh air. I guess it’s because the hotel took care to maintain many wide open spaces with lots of greenery? When you get closer to the beach, you can even smell the sea. I had some time to check out the surrounding area in the afternoon and I think it would be a great place for our next family vacation.

I saw a couple of villas which would be ideal for the family. I really like the rustic thatched chalets which give off a laid back feeling and are only a few minutes away from the beach. However, I think our diva Lisa would prefer the luxurious Indra Maya villas on top of the hill overlooking the sea with individual private swimming pools. Or maybe Dad and you should get a romantic couple suite from Mayang Sari? There are a lot of things to do here. The golf courses nearby are quite popular so I think Dad is going to love that. I would like to pop by the sea sports centre if I have time. There’s even a dune buggy challenge camp as well as an archery, rifle and horse range. I also spotted a mini zoo of sorts along the way with crocodiles and snakes – all tucked away safely, of course! I must tell you about dinner too. I had a delicious dinner at the Kelong Restaurant with my colleagues. I even tried Gong Gong, which is actually conch snail. As the name suggests, the restaurant is situated on top of the sea like a real kelong. They keep the fishes and lobsters in the sea water so that they are really fresh for the picking. That being said, I was told the hotel owners are really eco-friendly so they don’t put waste out into the sea. I also heard that there are many other restaurants here including a Thai restaurant, Japanese restaurant and more.

What I really love about this place is the people. The staff is always ready to help with a smile. Even the musicians and dancers who received me with a traditional Indonesian dance during arrival were happy to oblige me with a picture. You know that I’m on a diet right? When I asked the café chef to make me an egg white omelet, my request was granted easily too. I could feel a genuine sense of warmth from them, which is a little different from some of the posh hotels I’ve visited before. I’ve attached some of the pictures I took earlier to this email. I have a lot more to show you guys when I get back. You can have a look at the hotel website which is at www. nirwanagardens.com and see if Dad and you like it. I can make reservations once we decide on a date. I think I better stop here. I have to wake up early tomorrow for team bonding exercise. We are going to do the flying fox! I am sure it will be great fun. I’ll tell you more when I am back. Wish you were here though.

Love,

Ann
