The bad news related to COVID-19 have been the headliners in the past week: from KTV clusters to fishmongers forced to pause their businesses due to possible exposure at the Jurong Fishery Port. Not only are livelihoods severely affected by dine-in restrictions and business closures, but our food source is also now impacted.
However, as with all things, there's always a silver lining when we look hard enough. Did you know that you can get fresh and frozen fish online? For those of you who love fish and seafood, here's where you can buy them online.
If there is only one online fish merchant to go to, I will pick Kühlbarra. I first had a taste of the barramundi’s exquisite meat at my sister’s steamboat dinner. Kühlbarra passed its smell, sight, texture and taste tests with flying colours. The barramundi belly looked so fresh, had no foul smell, was firm when held with chopsticks and melted in my mouth. It was THE tastiest fish meat I had ever tried in my life! You know how it feels when you partake in something absolutely delicious? I was instantly in love and my experience totally debunked the notion that the freshest fish can only be bought from wet markets!
Upon further investigation, I discovered, to my delight, that not only is Kühlbarra a sustainable brand, it is also Singapore's only deep-sea ocean farm. As one of the world's largest sustainable Barramundi deep-sea aquaculture farm, it prides itself on its farm-to-fork model. Kühlbarra barramundi is harvested and processed to order and delivered via an unbroken cold chain to ensure optimal freshness. And according to their website, their products are "100 per cent growth hormone and antibiotic-free”. Definitely reassuring to hear!
An adult man once hailed as a child prodigy in China has decided to depend on his parents and live his entire life without a regular job. Rise of the “prodigy”: Born in 1995, Zhang Xinyang first gained acclaim as the “little prodigy” when he was 2.5 years old for being able to read over 2,000 Chinese characters. At age 5, Zhang was enrolled in a primary school but was bumped to second grade in less than a month.
The Japanese man who made headlines throughout the year for chronicling his journey as a “dog” has apparently flunked an agility course. What happened: The man, known to his followers as Toco, posted a series of photos on Instagram this week showing what appeared to be moments of failure in a Crufts-style agility course. About Toco: Toco rose to fame in 2022 after commissioning Zeppet, a Japanese model and sculpture company, to create a hyperrealistic rough collie costume for 2 million yen (around $16,000 at the time).
The Russian missile ship the Askold, which was destroyed on Nov. 4 after a Ukrainian missile struck the shipyard in Kerch, on the east coast of the occupied Crimean peninsula, will not be repaired, a Telegram news channel has claimed.
A woman in China received an unexpected 430,000-yuan (approximately $60,300) restaurant bill after she inadvertently shared the ordering code online, leading others to place food orders using it. What happened: The woman, surnamed Wang, mistakenly posted her table’s ordering QR code on her WeChat page while intending to share food photos of the hotpot restaurant she visited with her friend on Nov. 23, according to South China Morning Post. Despite limiting the post’s visibility to only her contacts, many people had scanned the code and placed fake orders, later resulting in the $60,300 bill for 1,850 portions of fresh duck blood, 2,580 portions of squid and 9,990 portions of shrimp paste.
So much for Pep Guardiola’s insistence at the start of the season that Manchester City are heading to their fourth successive title. After a comprehensive defeat by a magnificent Aston Villa, his side have slumped to fourth place in the table, six points behind the leaders Arsenal. Here’s how much they are drifting off the pace: Manchester United – a side who have spent much of the season serving up fodder for comedy writers – are now only three points behind them.
Yang Guang's rise from a village farmer to an Audi-driving businessman with two properties hinged largely on one of the most coveted documents in China: an urban hukou, or residency permit. The 45-year-old who lives in the central city of Zhengzhou likens the permit - which typically ties a person's access to health, education, loans and other services to their birthplace - to a "cattle ear-tag the state clipped us with". When Zhengzhou in the early 2000s temporarily allowed those who bought an apartment to also qualify for a city hukou, Yang seized the opportunity, allowing him to register a business and open stores across Henan province's capital, transforming his fortunes.
