FAB FIND: Fidget Cube

I fidget a lot; helps me think.  Problem is I don't like fidgeting with my fingers.  It has to be with something -- a pen, my ID holder, etc.  It's more than enough to keep me occupied while walking, in a meeting, or any place else I find myself thinking.

And while these everyday mundane items are more than enough to meet my fidgeting needs, I crave variety.  Good thing the Fidget Cube was invented!

SG | Tamago Gani Snack

Ok, not really a snack locally made in Singapore but it is in one of the country's numerous Expo sales that stumbled upon the Tamago Gani snack.  Thought they looked for adoringly unusual that I just had to buy a bag and blog about it!

SG | Tom's Palette

Ice cream is just one of those desserts that will never run out of style.  You'd be hard pressed to find someone who is not a fan.  So it's no surprise that ice cream parlors are a dime a dozen, especially in tropical countries like Singapore.

So how can you stand out from the crowd?  Make your own ice cream flavors, of course!  And Tom's Palette is an expert of such original creations.

SG | The Golden Duck's Gourmet Salted Egg Yolk Potato Chips

A fairly recent food fad spreading over Singapore is the salted egg anything.  Yes, you've heard me right.  Itlog na maalat in our shores.

Sure, it's not really such a new thing for us but here, salted egg sauce is dished on to almost every imaginable thing.  It's made its appearance in paos, McDonald's burgers, and, my personal fave, Breadtalk croissants, among others.

Why is it so popular?  In the right hands, salted egg sauce provides the perfect combination of sweet and salty, making it a tasty accompaniment to various dishes.

One of the more famous egg salted covered eats to come out of this fad is the salted egg yolk potato chip.   And here in Singapore, one of more well-know brands is by The Golden Duck.

SG | Quick Bites | SWAG (Salad, Wraps and Greens)

NOTE: Quick Bites are short posts about anything and everything; on things I don't exactly have much information on but have photos or short snippets I want to share.

SWAG, short for Salads, Wraps and Greens, is truly heaven-sent for those of us working near the industrial area surrounding the Tai Seng MRT station here in Singapore.

Sure hawker centres (local food stalls) are a dime a dozen in the area, but nothing sure beats the crunch of fresh vegetables during lunchtime.

SWAG's Ceasar Chicken Wrap
My fave is the Ceasar Chicken Wrap.  At S$10.50 an order (of which I will almost always order a soup of the day side, too, making my total bill a high of S$13.50), it's something my budget can't allow everyday (my lunchtime fare would usually be something from home or some good old hawker staple costing me S$5.00 or less).  But on days when I'm feeling especially wanting a health kick, I sacrifice the moolah for this one enjoyable healthy lunchtime treat.

FAB FIND: Daiso Japan's Strong Cyanoacrylate Adhesive

It is my belief (well, in my opinion anyway) that every home should always have some type of strong glue in their arsenal of repair tools.  They are absolutely fantastic pieces of equipment.  Doesn't cost too much and is useful for simple repairs.

But the gripe I have with most super glue brands is how watery it is.  Using it on paper is a chore (what with the paper absorbing the glue and all).  Worse off, it tends to run everywhere (because of its texture)!

Now 3M's Super Glue Gel (blogged about it before) is not as runny and is much more effective in spot binding pieces.  But for a cheaper (but still effective) alternative, I use Daiso Japan's Strong Cyanoacrylate Adhesive.

FAB FIND: Kokuyo's Harinacs (The Staple-free Stapler‎)

Ok.  I know the title may be a bit confusing.  But allow me to explain.

Stapler's use (staple) wires to stick paper together.  A life saver for adults, but staple wire and kids make a really bad combo.  Enter Kokuyo's Harinacs - the staple-free stapler‎.
