TV Series Review: Siren (Blue Ant Entertainment, Ch 473, unifi TV)

Move aside vampires and wolves, make way for mermaids. Or rather, a new supernatural TV series features a bisexual, polyamorous mermaid - and it is pretty addictive.

Throw in a mysterious government body, a couple of sympathetic humans and one murderous mermaid searching for her captured sisters and you get a captivating TV series. Produced by Freeform, Siren follows the story of Ryn, played by Eline Powell, a dangerous and alluring mermaid who mysteriously appears in the small fishing village of Bristol Cove and starts making her mark. The mysterious visitor catches the eye of local marine biologist Ben Pownall, whose interest on the strange woman arouses suspicion from fellow marine biologist, Maddie Bishop.

Roasted Duck at BBQ Kong Meng Restaurant, Cheras

It has been so long since I've done a food post simply because there are just too many food blogs out there that are more substantial than mine. But for this restaurant, I am making an exemption because it was just that good.

I came across BBQ Kong Meng restaurant purely by chance. We had just gone on a shopping spree at Jalan Jalan Japan in the nearby 1 Shamelin Mall and were famished for lunch by the time we were done. I consulted TripAdvisor on the nearest decent eatery to our location and immediately drove to Taman Maju Jaya, just five minutes away.

GE14 - Negaraku Malaysia

When I was in primary school, we had to write a short letter to our then-Prime Minister, Dr. Mahathir on the back of a hand-drawn Jalur Gemilang. My teacher told us that our letters would be delivered to the Prime Minister himself. I remember wishing for peace and prosperity. Back then, I looked up to Mahathir. After all, he was the man who put Malaysia on the map.

I knew not of Barisan National or the opposition party back then. I was always taught to be pro-government. It wasn't until I was in university that I was taught to question our government. I was lucky to have had lecturers who taught us to read in between the lines and to really study and observe our media. Things weren't all flowers and daisies with our government and in fact, were deteriorating for the worst. I studied at Taylor's University College in partnership with University Sains Malaysia for a degree that was phrased out simply because students only wanted foreign degrees rather than local ones. Such is the mindset that had planted itself in our nation. That foreign is better. All because our government is slowly but surely driving our country into the ground.
