We have discovered what to me is Singapore’s best mee rebus - Power Mee Rebus, prepared by Rahim Muslim Food, which occupies Stall #01-01, Chong Boon Market & Food Centre, at 453A Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10. A huge serving of the yellow noodles with an equally large serving of chicken, with peanut sauce all over them. The dish definitely lives up to its name!

After more than four years in the making, it is my pleasure to announce that Hell’s Museum has finally opened to the public - today.
The museum in Haw Par Villa explores perspectives of death and the afterlife across civilisations, religions, and cultures, and rituals and practices that emerged from these perspectives.
There’s plenty to see, learn, and ponder - a recreation of a burial crypt, a traditional Chinese void deck funeral, a traditional Chinese grave, altars from different parts of the world, and more.
And of course, the 10 Courts of Hell, now air-conditioned and its thousand-year evolution revealed, its multiple layers of history uncovered.
As the museum’s chief curator, it has been a long journey filled with immense challenges and obstacles - and innumerable late nights - but seeing the finished product fills me with satisfaction and pride.
There’s still plenty to work on and improve - but at least the baby’s out. Come visit and I hope you have a good time!

For my birthday, we decided to indulge in the culinary heritage of the Orang Laut, by ordering from oranglaut.sg.
There was sambal udang (prawns in sambal), sotong hitam (black squid), asam pedas ikan (spicy asam fish), and more.
The two of us ordered for four and had the set for lunch and dinner, but there was still plenty left over - the serving sizes were huge. More importantly, the home-cooked food was excellent. I’d totally have the sambal udang - especially the sambal - any day of the week.
As a heritage lover, I also enjoyed reading the accompanying notes on the food - it was a window into another culture.
Thank you oranglaut.sg!
