K.Cook Korean BBQ Buffet @ Orchard Central


K.Cook Korean BBQ Buffet is where we had dinner while bidding farewell to our colleague Boon Kiat, who came in similarly as a GRDP trainee with most of us, went through the highs and lows with us.

Located at the 7th level of Orchard Central, the dining experience is further enhanced with a rather scenic view of skyscrapers at an altitude, since we all know the experience won't be pleasant having dined at a Korean BBQ buffet restaurant. XD

Having noticed most of the waiters idling made me wonder if they were overstaffing, so I gave them some tasks to do, like asking them to help taking photos of us. LOL...


The entrance at Level 7


They got a huge screen showing some Korean shows with Korean idol groups whom I have no idea who they are, singing songs that I have no idea what they are.

Don't you think their colorful chairs are very harmonious?


The indoor, catered to couples



Try their crispy Korean pancakes and honeyed chicken wings




Free flow of drinks



Girls, tie your hair up before they get super oily











The Centrepoint, located at the northeast of the restaurant


Orchard Gateway @ Emerald, located the the northwest of the restaurant




All the best Boon Kiat! (he's the one on the left who looks like Andy Lau)

Kung Fu Panda - Oogway Ascends (Erhu & Keyboard Cover)


It's been around two and a half years since I last did covers with erhu, and all my erhu covers involve clones of myself because I have to be my own instrumental accompaniment.

If you've seen one of The Piano Guys' covers, Kung Fu Piano: Cello Ascends, well that's the cover I did, based on the the original arrangement and key of the original soundtrack from Kung Fu Panda, and it's named Oogway Ascends.

I actually recorded this cover before PSY - Daddy in December 2015. I've been wanting to do this for quite long owing to the similarity and suitability in terms of instrumental arrangement that I could come out with.

It took me so long to edit because I was busy editing the other cover and minding my own stuffs as well. While attempting to upload it to YouTube before 2015 ended, I failed, and you know what, a few days after the end of 2015, I learnt that Kung Fu Panda 3 is gonna be screened soon, such a coincidence, like some blessings in disguise where I can align my sharing of this cover with the anticipation of the movie release. :)

I hope you enjoy this cover, I had like 14 retakes for the erhu part.
