Warung Babi Guling in Bali, Ubud

Having visited Bali for a few times, I’ve never tried the famous dish in Bali that all my friends told me not to miss. During my trip to Bali this year, I finally got to try it and here’s my review about this dish that most tourist go ga ga over. I didn’t really do any research beforehand on which is the best restaurant to go for Babi Guling, so we just randomly passed by this restaurant that served Babi Guling in Ubud and with a pretty decent crowd in there, we decided to try this out. There’s actually quite a few option to choose from but to try the most common and authentic Babi Guling, we ordered the set which basically comes with everything. Before that, some ice cold coconut to relieve the heat. The avocado is so good that I decided to order one for myself as well. It didn’t take long for our food to be served. The first impression I had was, Nasi Padang. It looks exceptionally delicious and I can’t …

World’s First Air Purifier with Built-In Mosquito Catcher Launched in Singapore by SHARP

SHARP, Asia’s leading air purifier brand, launched the world’s first air purifier, the FP-FM40E-B, with a built-in mosquito catcher which is suitable for all households and is developed with the intention of providing families peace of mind and added protection against mosquitoes throughout the year. The device’s built-in mosquito catcher utilises a 5-step process that eliminates mosquitoes without the use of harsh chemicals. Firstly, the FP-FM40E-B is currently only available in black, as research has shown that mosquitoes are attracted to dark colours. An LED UV light then lures mosquitoes into its narrow air inlet, followed by a powerful suction technology which draws the mosquitoes in, finally trapping them onto a three-layer adhesive sheet which eventually kills them. Each layer of the adhesive sheet is disposable and lasts approximately one month. It is able to reduce the prevalence of viruses, allergens and microbes as it is designed to remove particulates as small as 2.5 microns (PM2.5). Of particular relevance to users in the region is the FP-FM40E-B’s “haze mode” function, designed to effectively filter air …
