Introducing PisangFan III

Finally in the midst of all exams, I have the chance of writing this long awaited article of Introducing PisangFan III. So, people have to be curious what we have gone through in doing this ventures... Now for some bad publicity...

This is our first few batch of PisangFan, the one that we thought we want to launch into the market. Perhaps our customers may have to thank whoever that we have decided not to do so. I remembered we were so excited after this batch, and we thought it would work... But dun ask me what happened after the cool down...

And the process when we prepare the final PisangFan...

Here's a scene on how we prepared the stresuels, but although the focus has been the three lovely ladies of the team, I think you get the idea.

A 'slice' of stresuel uncut....

The place for the pilot test, and the venue where the venture is going to be set up after the Arts canteen is being completed.

Overall, I would say in short, banana is presented in a different way in the end. A…

Introducing PisangFan II

Now now, how could I forget? It seems that after all these ranting about PisangFan, you still dun know who are the visionaries who have brought you PisangFan!!! Here are they:

Top up, we have the PisangFan logo, beautifully and wonderfully designed by ZW for this wonderful venture. Next up, we have all the pioneers who have started PisangFan, me inclusive. But maybe the rest of the 5 you are not that familiar with. Top from left are me, Julia and Zameer. Bottom from left are Ashleigh, Hongtao and Debbie. So these are the people who have brought you PisangFan. We are just humble students from NUS, who just wanna present banana in a different way to the market.

Overall, I would say, this PisangFan venture has been a greatly successful and fruitful one. I can just imagine that when the 6 of us came together in the first place, we had no idea what we had wanted to do, until (maybe a revelation from God) the idea of PisangFan just struck us. The original PisangFan had been a different one, a…

Introducing PisangFan

Bananas. How many ways you can eat a banana? First, cut the banana from the stock, then peel off the skin, then eat it. But is there any other ways you can eat it, prepare your banana so that you enjoy a whole new experience in eating bananas. So, what can you really do with a banana? So what do you think of this:

Or this:

So this is banana? Well, these are what PisangFan has come out with, new ways and ideas to present bananas to the world. The world eats banana, but it doesn't mean that we have to keep eating banana the same way. This presents a difference from PisangFan.

So what are all these? The first picture on top shows you the flagship product of PisangFan, literally named PisangFan. It is actually bite-sized fried bananas, ie nugget sized pisang goreng. But what is special is that due to a secret recipe, the crispiness of the PisangFan is able to be maintained hours after it's been cooled. Of course, from my personal experience, the best way to eat and enjoy PisangFan i…


We rode into town the other day,
Just me and my daddy.
He said I?d finally reached the age
And I could ride next to him on a horse
That of course was not quite as wide
We heard a crowd of people shouting,
And so we stopped to find out why.
There was that man that my dad said he loved
But today there was fear in his eyes.

So I said, Daddy why are they screaming?
Why are the faces of some of them beaming?
Why is he dressed in that bright purple robe?
I'll bet that crown hurts him more than he shows.
Daddy, please, can't you do something?
He looks as though he's gonna cry.
You said he was stronger than all of those guys.
Daddy please tell me why,
Why does everyone want him to die??

Later that day the sky grew cloudy
And Daddy said I should go inside.
Somehow he knew things could get stormy.
Boy, was he right! But I could not keep from wonderin?
If there was something he had to hide
So after he left I had to find out.
I was not afraid of getting lost.
So I followed the crow…

When faith breaks the limit

When faith breaks the limit...

A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. So many gathered that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them. Some men came, bringing to him a paralytic, carried by four of them. Since they could not get him to Jesus because of the crowd, they made an opening in the roof above Jesus and, after digging through it, lowered the mat the paralyzed man was lying on. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, "Son, your sins are forgiven."
- Mark 2:1-5

When he came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, "Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean."
Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!" Immediately he was cured of his leprosy.
- Matthew 8:1-3

When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, askin…

Freedom writer

Everyone has their own stories. Some may be sad, some may be depressing, some may be cheery, some may be happy. But beneath every story lies a search, a search for freedom, a search for an understanding soul. Beneath these little fragile hearts, lies a search for the greatest of all greatest stories. You may be the richest, you may be the most successful person, you may be the most forgotten person in your class, you may be the most bullied person in your school, you may be the only one in your clique without a handphone... no matter who you are, the heart inside, is ever searching for this freedom.

The greatest story, ever told to me, is not a search for freedom. At least for the main character of the story. This story told of a search for my freedom. This story told of a search for your freedom, if you are reading. This story is told to mankind of the search for his freedom. This story is in fact the story of freedom. This story... is the story of Jesus Christ.

I dun know about you,…
