Tim Ho Wan @ Chatswood
2067, 1 Railway St, Chatswood NSW 2067
Much hyped, Tim Ho Wan in Sydney is a not entirely faithful reproduction of the Hong Kong franchise. We had a whole variety of things – on the plus side, their famed pork buns had a great texture with that flaky crumb on the outside; on the downside, the glutenous rice was way too mushy. Other yum cha staples were good but otherwise unremarkable; there is better yum cha to be found in Sydney.

She covers things that are problematic with the portrayal of Asians in the media, and her personal experience of that.

Tasty, well-presented dishes that generally draws from south-east Asian flavours – the soft shell crab in the dry curry was particularly succulent. On the whole though, it suffers a little from a flaw often seen in modern takes of Asian food – heavy-handedness, the balance of flavours a little askew.

In 2005, Google bought a tiny mobile software company named Android, and almost nobody in the technology industry saw its potential — not even Eric Schmidt, Google's chairman and then chief executive. “One day Larry and Sergey bought Android, and I didn't even notice,” Mr. Schmidt told reporters ...

TL;DR Suggestion is that engineering work that is societally useful is more attractive.

RIP +Dan Fredinburg
Today we lost one of the great ones far too soon. Dan was a true adventurer at heart and died doing what he loved. He did as much as anyone I know to bring the amazing far-off reaches of the planet to all of us. The world feels a little less exciting now without him in it.

 I was always inspired by his optimism, passion, love for exploring, and commitment to make the world a better place. My conversations and brainstorms with Dan were some of the most fun ones I've had at Google. You won't meet many people like him.

I got to know Dan when I worked with him on the Google Street View Trekker program. If you've explored our Street View panoramas of the world's highest peaks, you can say "Thanks Dan". #thanksdan

Next time you're enjoying the great outdoors, gazing upon the infinite expanse of mountains and valleys and the impossible beauty of Mother Nature, please think of Dan.

To Dan's family, my thoughts are with you. He was an excellent human being and the world is truly better because of him. Thank you.

Friendly, competent service, at a good price, and with a good turnaround time.

It's exciting that the people behind Mamak are branching out into other Malaysian dishes, and the choices on the menu got me pretty excited. The good: the Ipoh hor fun had a deliciously intense prawn flavour and I found myself reaching for more. The less good: the texture of the shredded meat in the assam laksa wasn't quite right, and there's better char kuey teow to be found elsewhere. Overall, still looking forward to trying their other dishes.

The chicken is really just an excuse to eat more of that delicious garlic sauce. The chicken itself was a little on the dry side but the skin was well barbecued. Chips were good, but note: a large serving is really quite large!
