    • Yes 180 load is huge during peak hours and during school dismissal hours for ITE. Used to ride I to school everyday till a few months ago. I never understood why SMRT never deployed DDs for this service, given that even 172 got DDs. There must probably be a reason behind this.

      I would say A24s are more wasteful on 188. This service already has DDs to make It WAB. Shld just use O405Gs if need more HC buses and insufficient DDs. Save the A24s for 858 or feeder like 300, since they belong to KJDEP.

      With 858 getting bendys and proving CGA can be bendy-friendly and deploying bendy on services like 860, I believe LTA will have to seriously consider getting bendys in limited amounts to serve these services.  Anyway, LTA had never said no bendy explicitly. My prediction is that it is always under consideration but can't order till the O405Gs are gone.

      Somemore on 860, Is MP make SMRT deploy bendy. It would have been easier to get a DD from BSEP, but given that a bendy is deployed, there must be a reason. Also its a matter of time before residents start to complain that 1A24 is not enough. Also quite fishy that they got a bendy deployed on 983 alongside their DDs. Don't tell me they couldn't spare one more DD.

      i agree with this...even though 180 dun really have much loadings during AM off peak, the load during peak and even PM off peak is huge. Often buses will be packed to the door upon reaching Jurong Town Hall (twd BP), or even before that during PM peak. I am surprised when i see random A22s doing 180 during PM peak already... 

      It is similar to 243 in a sense that during PM peak, the queue can go very long and the reason why we dun see it full from Boon Lay is that some chose to wait for next bus in order to get a seat...

      MediaCorp has headlined singer-songwriter Adam Lambert as the star in the annual Countdown show, one of the biggest media events of the year featuring artistes and performers locally and overseas – but we understand that there are people who feel their children might turn gay from watching a gay person.


      We believe it is Sun Ho who has more of an "unquenchable thirst to sing better, to live better, to love better, to be better." (After all, we can't imagine why else she'd travel across the world to live for an extended period of time in a luxurious mansion if she wasn't trying to be a better artiste.)


      We call on people to rally for a performer who reminds the “majority of Singaporeans” of wholesome things such as family values, money, booty-shaking, money, some criminal case, money, God, money, church, and, of course, money. You know, "mainstream Singaporean values."

       Something wrong with the moral values of these boliao people who petition for an immoral b;tch .

      Ozaki beef refers to beef from Wagyu cattle raised on a single farm that's owned and managed by Mr. Muneharu Ozaki in Miyazaki Prefecture. He's the only farmer in Japan to use his own name to market his beef.

      Mr. Ozaki began by studying the most advanced techniques relating to beef cattle production at a farm in the USA which holds 17,000 cattle. However, he felt that he personally was unsuited to the mass production methods deployed in "beef cattle producing factories" which fatten cattle quickly and ship them at an early stage. On his return to Japan, he decided to produce beef that he and his family and friends would enjoy eating every day. He duly took over a farm and started by raising 100 cattle; after more than 30 years of effort he was finally satisfied by the flavour of his beef, and named it "Ozaki beef."

      The feed for the cattle is mixed every morning and evening during an extremely labour-intensive process lasting two hours. It comprises 15 kinds of feed, such as grass from the meadow, moist barley mash (a by-product of beer brewing), maize, barley, and so forth, with no preservatives or antibiotics whatsoever. Most Wagyu in Japan are slaughtered at around 28 months, but Mr. Ozaki believes the flavour continues to improve as they mature, so he prefers to slaughter them when they're 28 to 36 months old.

      The mature meat not only possesses a sublime texture, but is flavoursome with a sweetness that emerges as you chew. Its fat melts in the mouth and is easily digested, so you can eat a whole slab of beef without being overwhelmed by its richness.

    • From Kyushu again.




      Miyazaki Beef is 100% purebred Japanese Wagyu from the Miyachiku co-op. The name of the breed of cow that is used by Miyachiku is Kuroge Washu, also known as "Japanese Black". It is one of four Wagyu breeds that exist today, Kuroge being the largest of the four cattle breeds. It was not until September of 2012 that Japanese Wagyu was permitted in the states. The Miyachiku co-op is located in the Miyazaki Prefecture of Japan. A Japanese Prefecture is similar to a state or province. The Miyazaki Prefecture is the 2nd largest producer of Japanese Black cattle, and only the highest quality cattle from this region can be dubbed "Miyazakigyu". In 2007, this class of cow boasted the "Champion Cow" of the "Wagyu Olympics," and the fame is gradually gaining momentum. It’s beautiful color is one of its attractive factors. In official sumo, it is custom to present the champion sumo wrestler with one Miyazaki cow. Miyazaki prefecture is the only region in Japan that raises cattle by their breeds and biological types. For the past 10 years, Miyazaki has produced the highest quality beef in Japan, even higher than Kobe. Miyazaki Wagyu is not Kobe. Kobe beef is a Tajima strain of Wagyu Cattle and produced in the Hyogo Prefecture. 

      The Miyachiku co-op consists of about 400 farmers spread across the Miyazaki Prefecture. The Japanese farms are much different than farms that we are used to in the fact that the average amount of cattle that one farmer will harvest at a time is 4. This allows the farmers to pay attention to detail, take much better care of their animals, and focus on each individual animal's needs. 

      The animals are fed a diet mostly of wheat and corn for an average of 900 days. This is about 8 times longer than most cattle that is consumed in our market. Each individual farmer has their own proprietary feed ratio. The idea of Wagyu being fed beer and massaged by Japanese women is a myth, however the farmers are allowed to feed their animals whatever they deem appropriate. Maybe there is a farm or two out there that practices this technique!

      In a bid to maintain the high standard of the Miyazaki Wagyu, the Japanese authority have restricted the supplies of the prestigious beef to authorized distributors. In Japan, restaurants that are allowed to offer Miyazaki Wagyu on their menus are requested to put up an authorization notice in their store. They also need set up a designated counter to display the meat. To be an authorized distributor is even more rigorous. As you can imagine, we are very proud to be carrying A5 Miyachiku Wagyu here at Rare Edibles. 

      The standards of grading beef consist of Yield Grade and Quality Grade. "A" of "A5" means the yield grade, while "5" shows the quality grade. Moreover, the Japanese beef grading system has 5 quality grades; marbling, meat color and brightness, firmness and texture of meat, color, and the luster and quality of fat. 

      Miyazaki Wagyu is recognized for its cherry red colour, tender texture and great dense meat taste. The snowflake-liked fat is evenly distributed and produces a non-greasy flavour. It begins to dissolve at the temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, melting right in the mouth. At Rare Edibles, we carry only the finest, that is A5 Miyachiku Wagyu straight from Miyazaki.

      Notable Awards

      Miyazaki Wagyu have won various awards from the industry, including the most honoured "National Wagyu Award" by the Wagyu Registry Association in Japan. The award, also known as the "Wagyu's Academy Award", is given to the best cattle once every five years. Each time, more than 400 wagyu from some 30 places of origin would compete in the event which is attended by imperial family members. The beef are judged by their colour, fat distribution, meat fibres and taste. The National Wagyu Award has now gone to Miyazaki Wagyu two consecutive times meaning it has held the reigns for ten years! With its outstanding meat quality and breeding ability, the Miyazaki Wagyu won the "Prime Minister Award" in 2007. They also beat the beef from Kobe and Matsuzaka and became the overall winner - winning seven out of the nine contests - at the event. Miyazaki Wagyu has been called "Japan's Number One Beef" ever since.
