Certified Halal 😀 

My lunch today at Thien Thien at Kiulap branch

Finally all of us can dine at Thien Thien without any doubts

Yay!! After decades of existence, Thien Thien Restaurant (known for their Chicken Rice), has finally obtained the Halal Certificate under the Halal Certificate and Halal Label Order, 2005. I spoke to the owner earlier during lunch today and he was very appreciative that the Halal Certificate has helped his business to flourish at his Kiulap establishment.

Thien Thien Kiulap has been around for 12 years and the manager said that his branch has broken record sales in the past week or so ever. He shared it was a hardworking process to get the certificate and now with the Halal certificate, it has brought new confidence to the patrons. Judging from the responses from my instagram, Thien Thien Kiulap is bound to be a greater hit among the locals.

Russell Peters rocked 

Three shows in Singapore last week

I never had a chance to meet him in person.

Late post: Wowwwieeee!!! It’s hard to do a review of the comedic Russell Peters. This is the second time I caught him live in Singapore. The first one being in Singapore back in 2012 for his “Notorious” show and this time it’s called “Almost Famous”. I was the only one from the @bruhahahcomedy group that attended the Singapore show. Well, it was hosted during the weeknight so it will be hard for many to fly to Singapore and catch him live.

Was he funny as hell? Of course, the benchmark of Russell Peters is still his “Outsource” gig many, many years ago and it’s never easy to steal that particular thunder of “Be a Real Man” or “Somebody is gonna get hurt real bad”. I saw them tag lines being sold as merchandise at Suntec Convention Centre where his gig is being held. So to answer the question, yes, he was funny that night but wasn’t on his prime as he was before. I have to admit that his Notorious gig two years ago was below par and I was disappointed leaving the Singapore Indoor Stadium that night.

Fast forward to “Almost Famous”, it’s worth the trip actually. Half of his materials were spontaneous as he picked on a couple of victims at the front row. Perhaps the notable one was the two underage kids below their teen years who happened to be catching the show. Peters made the audience laugh in stitches but I kinda feel sorry for the two young boys were made fun of and maybe, just maybe, his father may have regretted bringing his son along.

It was the first time I also heard Peters talked about toilet humour and I thought that was hilarious. He shared his experiences calling an IT consultant and touched a lot on Indian cultures as well.

The security was pretty tight that it was really hard to play with your gadget especially your smartphones. They won’t even give you the chance to play or text or do anything with your phone. I saw a few people from the audience being told off by the muscular built securities and they would shine their flashlights to embarrass him or her before he or she would put away the smartphone. This is to prevent the attendees to take the opportunity to steal a photo or record a video or an audio. I thought that’s a very good rule and also kinda make the audience feel very present during Peters’ show.

Overall, it was a very entertaining evening though I came alone #sioksendiri and I don’t mind another Russell Peters show in the near future. Oh, I also love how @djspinbad played some cool video mixes to warm up the crowd. Verdict: 8/10.


It was a sold out crowd on the 7th of April and my ticket cost SGD 160

Impressed with DJ Spinbad spinning before the show

A very responsive crowd that night
