    YOSHIYUKI IS NOW YOSHI Kaiseki Yoshiyuki at the basement of Forum The Shopping Mall is now called simply Yoshi. The fine-dining kaiseki restaurant has also become less formal, with a brighter entrance and a simpler menu. 온라인바카라 Lunch has donburi menus from $58, but there are also three eight-course set menus for lunch and dinner - the maguro menu ($158), the wagyu beef menu ($178) and the uni menu ($188) - with sake pairings at extra cost. Except for the main course, the sets are similar with appetisers, soup, sashimi, chawanmushi and desserts. I tried the wagyu menu and, though not as lavish as the previous kaiseki meals I had eaten at Yoshiyuki, it was substantial enough. And the starters and sashimi were just as refined.   The wagyu was served in the shiizakana course - a clear broth with vegetables, tofu and thin slices of the beef. The rice course, which was supposed to be a wagyu beef don, was swapped to sakura ebi on rice instead because the tiny shrimps were in season. 카지노사이트 I would have preferred more beef, but the shrimps were good, too. WHERE: Yoshi, 583 Orchard Road, B1-39 Forum The Shopping Mall MRT: Orchard OPEN: Noon to 2pm, 7pm to 10pm. Closed on Sundays

    The boxing match between YouTubers KSI and Logan Paul on Saturday (Aug 25) was set to be, at least according to the hype, " the biggest event in internet history ". But in the end, it may have all been the prequel to another event, as the main fight ended in a draw in front of 20,000 people at the Manchester Arena. 온라인바카라 Online, the fight was watched by millions, both on the official pay-per-view YouTube channel, and on bootleg livestreams on other platforms. Neither of the men are professional boxers, having earned their fame for the videos they post on YouTube. KSI, real name Olajide William "JJ" Olatunji, has more than 19 million subscribers. He initially shot to internet fame with videos of him playing Fifa video games. Logan Paul was one of the breakout stars from Vine, a now defunct social media app on which users posted humorous six-second videos. Each comes with his share of controversies. In January, 23-year-old Paul posted a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim , while KSI, 25, was accused of making sexist comments in his earlier videos . Both apologised in the aftermath of each case. Appropriately enough, the boxing event too was contentious. The British Boxing Board of Control put out a statement ahead of the match distancing itself from the event: "Neithe r individual is licensed by the BBBBofC and the BBBofC does not participate in such events." 바카라사이트주소    Among the fans who made it to the arena were 22-year-olds Luke Robinson and Laura Busby, both from Scunthorpe. "I've never been to a boxing match before, but we're massive KSI fans, so we thought we'd come," said Busby. "It's a really big deal for KSI," said Robinson. "It's not just a boxing match - it's personal." The encounter in the ring seemed to be important to Paul too. Referring to the uproar over the incident in January, he thanked KSI and said: "You saved my career." The match had all the trappings of a professional boxing event, from the dramatic walkouts to the trash talk. Renowned ring announcer Michael Buffer even announced the main card with his trademark: "Let's get ready to rrrrrumble!" This is the second time two YouTubers have fought in a white-collar match, in a phenomenon that aims to monetise online feuds between internet celebrities. Over the last few months, KSI and Paul have been curating the drama of their feud through social media. Adding to the soap opera, their brothers, Jake and Deji, also fought on the undercard, with Jae emerging victorious. 카지노사이트 But after six evenly fought rounds, the judges scored a draw - meaning the drama will be extended to a rematch already scheduled for February. Interviewed after the fight, KSI said: "Let's do that again, that was fun. Holy shit." Paul, too, seemed to have enjoyed the experience: "I think it's what the people want. Let's give them a motherf***ing rematch! … I feel like I won that fight, but it doesn't matter. What happened happened. The rematch is going to be f***ing crazy." It's unclear exactly how much money the participants will make, but between livestreams, ticket sales, merchandise and the promise of a repeat next year, it's likely to be a small fortune.

    The story: Four-year-old Kun (Moka Kamishiraishi) is jealous when his baby sister Mirai arrives and monopolises their parents' attention. Then he meets a grown-up schoolgirl Mirai (Haru Kuroki), who calls him "big brother" and asks him not to bully her. Kun also meets a mysterious former prince, his mother as a child and his grandfather as a young man. He learns about the past and gets a glimpse of the future. 카지노사이트 Japan's Mamoru Hosoda is the director, and sometimes writer, of several lauded anime hits. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006) features a time-travelling schoolgirl; Wolf Children (2012) is about a mother raising her two half-human half-wolf children; and The Boy And The Beast (2015) dwells on the relationship between a powerful beast and his human disciple. At first, Mirai seems to be a departure from his previous fare as it is very much rooted in everyday life. Kun's mother goes back to work after having Mirai and his architect father tries to balance working from home with taking care of the household.   Hosoda has an eye for realistic details, from the sombre expression on baby Mirai's face to the way Kun sleeps (there's a reason why yoga has a Child's Pose). Thematically though, the film-maker is back on familiar ground as he explores what it means to be family. The point of view is a fresh one and the gentle family drama is a non-condescending and non-cutesy examination of a toddler's emotional life. The fantasy element so prevalent in his past works is not completely absent; after all, the Japanese title is Mirai No Mirai, which means Mirai Of The Future. Keeping away the ceremonial dolls properly and promptly after Hinamatsuri, or Girls' Day, becomes an entire adventure that involves Kun, future Mirai and the mysterious prince. 인터넷카지노 But the fantasy has been given a twist, one that is perfectly tailored for the young protagonist here. Is what we are seeing merely imaginative play on Kun's part? Or is there more to his flights of fancy since he is unlikely to know of his mother's and grandfather's pasts in such detail? The question is not definitively answered but what matters is that Hosoda delves into the sometimes chaotic world of a four-year-old with care and respect.

    Shoppers in Mexico City's Argentina Market got an unexpected dose of culture last Saturday (Aug 25) when they were treated to Spanish composer Pablo Sorozabal's opera La Tabernera Del Puerto. 안전놀이터 The impromptu performance by a troupe of four singers was part of a programme called Opera En El Mercado, which aims to take classical music to everyday places, the Associated Press (AP) reported. From June to November, performers will pop up to sing in many of the city's 300 food halls and 195 metro stations. Last Saturday's performers, clad in T-shirts and aprons, included music therapist Lydia Rendon, who told AP: "This is where our humanity connects - the food, the smells, the flavours - and it's even better with music." Another member of the troupe is also a market vendor. Mr Franciso Pedraza, 50, who sells shoes near the Basilica Of Guadalupe, serenaded the crowd with his strong tenor voice. Trained in opera from age 16 to 30, Mr Pedraza auditioned to join the roving opera troupe when it was doing a sound check at his market in June.   He told AP: "The voice is an instrument that you have to exercise continuously to always maintain the same range." 온라인카지노 Mr Juan Carlos Diaz, coordinator of the community cultural action programme for Mexico's national fine arts institute, said he is planning more impromptu operas next year. The programme is reminiscent of last month's effort by a Mexican theatre company, Ardentia, to bring cheer to frustrated drivers on Mexico City's congested roads. Tutu-clad dancers, twirling and twisting with their chins held high, presented 58-second shows - the duration of a traffic light - on the streets of the city. The performances ranged from ballet classics like Swan Lake and The Nutcracker to Michael Jackson's Rock With Me, reverberating from a boombox plugged into an iPod.

    British performer and choreographer Lindsay Kemp died suddenly last Friday (Aug 24) in Livorno, a port city in Italy's Tuscany. He was 80. 온라인카지노 The artist was known for his brilliant and subversive performances, as well as for being a mentor to famed English singer Kate Bush and the late acclaimed star David Bowie, the Guardian reported on Sunday. David Haughton, a close friend and collaborator of Kemp's for 45 years, told BBC News that Kemp had been working up until his sudden death, and called the death "a huge shock". "But if it had to happen, this was the best way. He was in a very good period - he had been working and dancing. He had no illness, he was with friends," he said. Haughton said that Kemp had reported feeling ill and then was "gone" a minute and a half later.   Some Singaporeans may remember him for his version of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Kallang Theatre more than two decades ago. The rendition shocked audiences here with its avant-garde use of nudity and sex play. A glowing review dated June 25, 1992, in The Straits Times nonetheless called the production "beguiling", and the use of nudity "integral to the spirit of the performance". Kemp, then 54, played the character of Puck, a mischievous and clever sprite in Shakespeare's play. Kemp was born May 3, 1938, near Liverpool, England. He found a passion for dance at an early age, and after watching the Ballet Rambert company perform, went to London to audition at the age of 17. After studying under expressionist dancer Hilde Holger and French mime Marcel Marceau, he formed his own dance company in the 1960s. 바카라사이트 He developed his own distinctively camp style, combining different elements of mime, dance and British punk rock. In 1972, he staged Bowie's famous Ziggy Stardust concerts in London, and then left Britain for Spain and Italy in the late 1970s. Kemp had been rehearsing with students, preparing for a tour of Italy and writing his memoirs before his death. British actor and writer Nicholas Pegg said on Twitter last Saturday that Kemp was "one of life's originals". "An artist to the tips of his fingers, a mentor and inspiration for titans... a prodigiously talented performer, and a truly delightful man."

    The annual Yellow Ribbon Prison Run will take place on Sept 9. It has three goals: To create awareness of giving second chances to former convicts, generate acceptance of former convicts in the community, and inspire community action to support the rehabilitation and reintegration of former offenders. 인터넷바카라 According to the Singapore Prison Service last year, the rate of former convicts going back to jail within two years of being released remained stable at 26.5 per cent. This can be attributed to inmates securing gainful and stable employment, strong support from their families and the community, as well as their personal resolve to steer clear of crime, the prison service said. However, in my opinion, reintegrating former convicts remains a complicated and multi-dimensional challenge. The best rehabilitation regime during imprisonment is useless if former convicts find themselves rejected every time, after they are released and are trying to reintegrate into society. 카지노사이트 For example, many people still hold a dim view of former convicts. This is because they are afraid the former convicts will stray from the straight and narrow and go back to their old ways. However, taking such a view is not good for the future growth of Singapore. Former convicts served their time and paid the price for their crimes. I urge all Singaporeans to help more former convicts by giving them a second chance. It is said that no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. A second chance means a lot to former convicts. They will never have the courage to put their mistakes behind them and work on rebuilding their lives if they do not get the chance to do so.

    About 2.5 years ago I started an experiment, could I leave Google. 온라인카지노 I was nervous, finding information is often important to my work; and after more than 10 years I had come to trust the relationship between my search methodology and Google's responses. I had also read so much bad stuff about Bing, starting with its silly name through to only being useful in the USA. First I test switched to Bing on my work desktop. It felt quicker there to be able to repeat the search in Google if I didn't trust the result. Initially I did not like the web results or the news search but what did win me over was image search on Bing. So after image search next I started appreciating the video search interface and then switched my laptop to Bing. It was a gradual mental process and perhaps my methodology shifted but I came to observe that web results did return what I was looking for even if it was not exactly the same sites or order of sites.  Letting go of comparing the order of results was the turning point. It may seem obvious but the actual goal here is finding information, not that a results window looks the same. How often is that your real comparison? 바카라사이트주소 Next I switched my iOS devices over to Bing. but my transfer was not complete as I still defaulted to Google Maps on web. That has also stopped. So has relying on Google for local business information. I like Bing. Where does Google still play? There are rare occasions where I seek a second search opinion when I don't find what I am looking for. I still use Google Maps when I am measuring a distance between two places - once or twice a year. I do view content on YouTube and breaking that I think at this time is a near impossible task. If the content is there and nowhere else.... Of course if I am placing something on the web and want it found I make sure it is known to Google. Also ironically perhaps, at work on Windows I use Chrome, Firefox is too slow. I also do use Chrome on my Mac if I am uploading to YouTube as it has a resume feature not available on Safari. 카지노사이트 Do I Bing it? No I never say that, I search for things and I tell people to "search for it" Oh and... how sweet is Chrome + Bing

    Some say that the rich or richly paid are not likely to be corrupt. Not really. Many drug lords and politicians who have fingers in their national coffers are, as the Chinese saying goes, "snakes that are so avaricious that they even attempt to swallow an elephant". 온라인바카라 The intrinsic value of a Singapore dollar - the value of the plastic and ink that make up the dollar - should be lower than its currency value. But, the intrinsic value of a person is his innate character. It should be higher than the values of his title and his pay. A learned Roman refused to serve his emperor and was reduced to eating porridge, considered a poor man's food. Someone taunted him, saying: "If you know how to serve Caesar you don't have to eat porridge." 카지노사이트주소   He replied: "If you know how to eat porridge, you don't have to serve Caesar." Once, I was surprised that a millionaire was caught for financial corruption. "Didn't he have enough?" I exclaimed. My wife, who overheard me, said: "What do you know? You have never even smelled a million!" Good point. If I already had a million, would I be practising the philosophy of one of my very rich students who once told me: "Sir, you can never have too much money." 바카라사이트주소 A really great man is one who, while serving Caesar, also knows how to eat only rice or even porridge, if necessary. Such integrity is a rarity.
