Golden Rice was developed by the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), headquartered in Laguna, south of Manila, to help curb vitamin A deficiency in developing nations. It is named for the yellow color of the grain. Pilot planting began in the Philippines in 2013, overseen by the Department of Agriculture and its attached agency, the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice). When formal biosafety approval was granted last July, the agriculture department said Golden Rice was a landmark for nutrition in the country, with planting expected in some provinces during the 2022 wet cropping season. Around 1 in 5 children from the poorest communities in the Philippines suffer from vitamin A deficiency, according to IRRI. Golden Rice is also undergoing a final review by regulators in Bangladesh. Vitamin A keeps the skin and eyes healthy, and a deficiency can cause problems such as difficulty seeing in dim light. But the move by the Philippines has drawn a wave of criticism amid festering global worries over the safety of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. "Golden Rice will poison our lands," said Melanie Guavez, a rice farmer from Camarines Sur, the southeastern tip of Luzon, where Manila is located, who also leads anti-GMO alliance SIKWAL-GMO. Her home province was the site of pilot planting back in 2013. In August that year, Guavez and hundreds of other farmers uprooted the crops in protest before the harvest could be evaluated by authorities. "The government doesn't inform any of us about the negative effects that Golden Rice can have on our lands and livelihood," said Guavez. "They try to trick us with Band-Aid solutions and half-truths. They say that they'll help us with our pesticides, seeds, etc, but they are trying to get rid of traditional planting methods." Dr. Rey Ordonio, Golden Rice project leader at PhilRice, told Nikkei Asia that "we are simply providing Golden Rice as another inbred variety that farmers can choose to plant. Golden Rice has been developed for humanitarian purposes and we deliberately developed it as an inbred just like conventional rice varieties to ensure it will be affordable and accessible to farmers and consumers." Such purebred rice varieties still represent most of the genetic variety of rice commonly grown in the Philippines. Ordonio assured consumers that Golden Rice is completely safe. He based that on a 2016 report from the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine in the U.S., which surveyed almost 900 studies and publications attesting that genetically modified crops are not dangerous. Golden Rice seedlings are planted at a laboratory south of Manila in 2013. © Reuters Guavez said that growing Golden Rice requires an overreliance on pesticides and herbicides that ordinary farmers cannot afford. She said the whole initiative will plunge farmers into debt. In order to pay off their mounting loans, she fears that indebted farmers will sell their land to big corporations that hover like vultures over anyone willing to let go of their property. Guavez fears that over time, the Bicol region's agricultural areas will be more vulnerable to corporate takeovers. "Big business will benefit from this, not us," she said. "We are trying to protect our local seeds and our lands. Why do we need something cooked up in a laboratory? The government should support local initiatives instead." Giovanni Tapang is the dean of the University of the Philippines College of Science and the chairman of Advocates of Science and Technology for the People (AGHAM). He took aim at the biotech industry. "Farm inputs are under the development and control of agrochemical multinationals. The claims of the agricultural biotech industry that only their products are needed to feed the world ignore the realities that the majority of our farmers are in. Land is concentrated in the hands of a few landlord families, while most farmers are landless or lack land to sustain their families." Cathy Estavillo, of Amihan, a national organization of farm laborers and a member of the Stop Golden Rice Coalition, also pointed the finger at multinational companies. She says the introduction of Golden Rice in the country means the Philippine government has strengthened its adherence to neoliberal globalization, which does not bode well for farmers. Moreover, she said, conglomerates have backed GMO rice development for years in a bid to benefit from their production and markets. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has donated millions of dollars over the years to IRRI for rice research. The tech billionaire is also a frequent donor to foundations set up by the agrochemical giant Syngenta. Some of his business startups also have partnerships with the company. Syngenta, along with several other corporations, owns a patented license to the technology needed for Golden Rice. Estavillo claims the entire premise of addressing vitamin A deficiency is a smoke screen thrown up by corporate proponents who want to make money off a new product. Estavillo added that even the underlying premise of Golden Rice is flawed. "You would need to eat around 4 kilos of Golden Rice to meet daily vitamin A requirements. Why not subsidize the production and delivery of other local vegetables instead? The reason is, GMO crops are a cash cow and the Philippine government is brokering this deal to those who stand to profit." She was citing a study made by Madeleine Love, an Australia-based independent researcher who claimed that 4 kg of Golden Rice and one carrot have about the same vitamin A content. However, Ordonio insists the project fits perfectly with lifestyles in the country. "Rice is a staple food among Filipinos. It is already a good source of carbohydrates but lacks other nutrients. It is important to note that Golden Rice is intended to be a complementary source of beta carotene in the diet." Beta carotene is converted to vitamin A in the body. But Estavillo believes Golden Rice won't be a hit in the Filipino market. She witnessed handouts of free Golden Rice samples from the government back in 2015 and said children were put off by the yellowish color. Amihan is currently working with congressional lawmakers and officials in several provinces to impose a resolution or injunction against the cultivation of Golden Rice. Meanwhile, farmer Guavez wants the state to support local and organic farming methods and workers. "Since the pilot testing in 2013, there has been no consistent help from the Department of Agriculture for Golden Rice. It's a scam designed to rid us of our lands and work. We have fended for ourselves for as long as we can remember and even with this implementation of a new strain, we will continue to do the same." She said farmer groups from her region are planning a protest caravan, filing into vehicles to hold demonstrations in other provinces and calling for the uprooting of Golden Rice crops.
  5. Ubi Soup Kitchen Seeks Help To Pack 9,000 Meals A Day, Volunteers & Rice Needed source: https://mustsharenews.com/soup-kitchen-willing-hearts/ Soup Kitchen Needs Volunteers To Pack 9,000 Meals A Day, Up From 6,500 Before Pandemic Beyond lost jobs and lower salaries, the Covid-19 pandemic has sadly left more Singaporeans struggling to fulfil basic needs like food. Thankfully, organisations like soup kitchens are around to help, offering regular meals to those in need. One such soup kitchen is Willing Hearts, which has been working hard to cater to their beneficiaries’ needs through this difficult period. In a Facebook post today (5 Oct), they shared that they’ve had to provide roughly 2,500 more meals daily since the outbreak, and hence need more help. Appealing to the public’s goodwill, they’re asking for anyone who’s willing and able to contribute in their own ways. Soup kitchen prepared more meals during pandemic According to their Facebook post, Willing Hearts prepared about 6,500 meals daily before the Covid-19 pandemic. However, this number rose over the course of the pandemic. The number has now increased to about 9,000 meals daily, which is an estimated increase of 2,500 meals. As a result, the demand for food supplies has also risen, with Willing Hearts using between to 900-1,000kg of rice every day. Soup kitchen appeals for volunteers and donations With the number of meals produced for the needy, it is no surprise that more volunteers are needed. According to their Facebook post, the soup kitchen says that they are especially shorthanded during their weekday 5am slots. Understandably, many Singaporeans may not be awake so early in the morning, especially with work or school starting in a few hours. However, one could consider giving up their morning run once a week to help out at Willing Hearts. Apply as a volunteer or make donations online Those interested in volunteering their time to prepare and pack food can sign up via this link. You can choose a date that you’d like to volunteer on and indicate that you’re coming. Drivers can also lend their vehicles to a charitable cause by helping out with food deliveries around Singapore. Kind souls who’d like to donate items or funds can do so via this link, where one can find a list of recommended items to donate. More information about volunteer roles and dress code can be found at Willing Hearts’ website. Volunteering your mornings for a good cause Operating a soup kitchen is no easy task. According to their Facebook page, Willing Hearts operates all year long, distributing food to 40 locations islandwide. With the Covid-19 pandemic, this task has become harder. Their beneficiaries include the elderly, disabled, low-income families and children with single parents. If you have the time, do volunteer to help out these vulnerable groups with this soup kitchen. This year has truly shown the best and worst of humanity. But let’s be one of those who offer a helping hand or guiding light to others in these dark times, and give them hope for the path ahead.

  13. All the food lovers out there, kindly share your favourite roast duck rice. My favourite is the Lau Phuay Chay roast duck at Alexandra Village. The roast duck is good; Roast duck is crispy and not too oily. Roast meat is nicely done and some burn ends add to the cripsy texture. Their signature is their thick and aromatic gravy topping with every plate of rice.
  14. Scientists have discovered a simple way to cook rice that dramatically cuts the calories Rice, the lifeblood of so many nations' cuisines, is perhaps the most ubiquitous food in the world. In Asia, where an estimated 90 percent of all rice is consumed, the pillowy grains are part of almost every meal. In the Caribbean, where the starch is often mixed with beans, it's a staple too. Even here in the United States, where people eat a comparatively modest amount of rice, plenty is still consumed. Rice is popular because it's malleable—it pairs well with a lot of different kinds of food—and it's relatively cheap. But like other starch-heavy foods, it has one central flaw: it isn't that good for you. White rice consumption, in particular, has been linked to a higher risk of diabetes. A cup of the cooked grain carries with it roughly 200 calories, most of which comes in the form of starch, which turns into sugar, and often thereafter body fat. But what if there were a simple way to tweak rice ever so slightly to make it much healthier? An undergraduate student at the College of Chemical Sciences in Sri Lanka and his mentor have been tinkering with a new way to cook rice that can reduce its calories by as much as 50 percent and even offer a few other added health benefits. The ingenious method, which at its core is just a simple manipulation of chemistry, involves only a couple easy steps in practice. "What we did is cook the rice as you normally do, but when the water is boiling, before adding the raw rice, we added coconut oil—about 3 percent of the weight of the rice you're going to cook," said Sudhair James, who presented his preliminary research at National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) on Monday. "After it was ready, we let it cool in the refrigerator for about 12 hours. That's it." How does it work? To understand what's going on, you need to understand a bit of food chemistry. Not all starches, as it happens, are created equal. Some, known as digestible starches, take only a little time to digest, are quickly turned into glucose, and then later glycogen. Excess glycogen ends up adding to the size of our guts if we don't expend enough energy to burn it off. Other starches, meanwhile, called resistant starches, take a long time for the body to process, aren't converted into glucose or glycogen because we lack the ability to digest them, and add up to less calories. A growing body of research, however, has shown that it might be possible to change the types of starches found in foods by modifying how they are prepared. At the very least, we know that there are observable changes when certain foods are cooked different ways. Potatoes, for instance, go from having the right kind of starch to the less healthful kind when they are cooked or mashed (sigh, I know). The process of heating and cooling certain vegetables, like peas and sweet potatoes, can also alter the amount of resistant (see: good) starches, according to a 2009 study. And rice, depending on the method of preparation, undergoes observable chemical changes. Most notably, fried rice and pilaf style rice have a greater proportion of resistant starch than the most commonly eaten type, steamed rice, as strange as that might seem. "If you can reduce the digestible starch in something like steamed rice, you can reduce the calories," said Dr. Pushparajah Thavarajah, a professor who is supervising the research. "The impact could be huge." Understanding this, James and Thavarajva tested eight different recipes on 38 different kinds of rice found in Sri Lanka. What they found is that by adding a lipid (coconut oil in this case, because it's widely used in Sri Lanka) ahead of cooking the rice, and then cooling the rice immediately after it was done, they were able to drastically change its composition—and for the better. "The oil interacts with the starch in rice and changes its architecture," said James. "Chilling the rice then helps foster the conversion of starches. The result is a healthier serving, even when you heat it back up." So far they have only measured the chemical outcome of the most effective cooking method for the least healthful of the 38 varieties. But that variety still produced a 10 to 12 percent reduction in calories. "With the better kind, we expect to reduce the calories by as much as 50 to 60 percent," said James.
  15. Hi all ppl, My friend and I is organizing a rice donation drive on our National day, 9th of August 2014. We are doing this purely for charity purpose. Please don't come and disturb arh. Last year i donated and went to help ferrying the rice to 2 old folks home and little that we know that these ah gong and ah ma need our help and company.

The condition of the old folks home i went is not in very good condition and they always base on kind people like us to do donation. Last year i got take some photos. We are looking for participant to volunteer in "ferrying" the rice and donating "moolah" to buy rice. Our target is to have 6 tons of rice. If we got excess cash we will turn them into biscuits. 1 bag of 25kg rice is $30. You can also donate nominal amount. But more is always the merrier. For donation matters, you all can look for Ken (8113 8901) or PM me. On behalf of all ah gong and ah ma, i wanna thank you all first! (: If can, make yourself free on the morning on 9th of Aug, we will go volunteer and help out the needy one! UPDATES as of June 2014: 1 bag of rice is $25. For donations: Look for Towkay Ken @ 50 Serangoon North Ave 4, #01-08, First Centre. Or contact him @ 8113 8901.
  16. Anyone knows any good zhi char stall with good sambal fried rice? IIRC there was a good sambal fried rice in chong pang area kopitiam near Chong Pang Camp. It has since changed a lot of stall owners (since early 2000s) and the original cook who prepared the fried rice is no longer there. Heard it was shifted to other venues. Anyone knows their lost and found?
  17. Nine choke to death on Japanese New Year delicaciesPublished: 4 January 2015 Naked men in loinclothes pound steamed rice into a mochi, rice cake to celebrate the New Year at the Kanda shrine in Tokyo on January 1, 2015. – AFP pic, January 4, 2015. Nine people have choked to death in Japan after eating traditional glutinous "mochi" rice cakes to celebrate the New Year, an official and local media said Sunday. In Tokyo alone, 18 people were sent to hospital due to suffocation after eating the New Year delicacy, and three of them died, a fire department official said. The Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper said the death toll from rice cake accidents reached nine by Friday across the nation and 13 others were in a serious condition. During the New Year period, one of Japan's biggest holidays, families traditionally cook "ozouni" soup and put the sticky rice cakes in the vegetable broth. The fire department is advising people, especially the elderly and infants, to cut mochi into small pieces before eating it. Every year, several Japanese die after choking on rice cakes. – AFP, January 4, 2015. http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/world/article/nine-choke-to-death-on-japanese-new-year-delicacies
  18. http://www.tremeritus.com/2014/03/30/dpm-teo-advertises-1-80-chicken-rice-in-his-grc/ DPM Teo advertises $1.80 chicken rice in his GRC March 30th, 2014 | Author: Editorial A reader sent the following screenshot of DPM Teo’s Facebook post to TRE. DPM Teo was sharing a photo of chicken rice with netizens yesterday (29 Mar), with the following message: lunch only $1.80 at Pasir Ris Blk 446 The photo actually originated from Ng Cher Pheng (https://www.facebook.com/ng.cherpheng). He posted the photo on his own Facebook page and shared it with DPM Teo on Friday (28 Mar): Mr Ng posted it with the message: “Lunch only $1.80 @Blk446“. DPM Teo then added the words, “Pasir Ris” to make the message clearer when he re-posted Mr Ng’s photo on his own Facebook page. Mr Ng turns out to be a grassroots leader for the Pasir Ris West Division [Link]. At the National Day Awards 2010, Mr Ng received the Public Service Star (BBM) as Chairman of Pasir Ris West Citizens’ Consultative Committee [Link]. According to the People’s Association website [Link]: The Citizens’ Consultative Committees (CCCs) are at the apex of all grassroots organisations. A vital bridge between the people and the Government, the CCCs plan and lead major grassroots activities within the constituency, oversee local assistance programmes, and organise major fund-raising projects and national campaigns. A further search on the internet reveals that Mr Ng was in fact a member of the Executive Committee of Singapore Insurance Employees’ Union (SIEU) [Link], which was sued by more than 100 of its members last year for failing to represent their interest: Union members go to court when union fails to represent their interests 141 union members behind court application against their union SIEU is an entity affiliated with NTUC. A number of union members are currently suing their employer NTUC Income, another entity under NTUC (‘FCs take collective legal action against NTUC Income‘). After DPM Teo posted the above photo on his Facebook page [Link], some netizens expressed doubt. One said: MP not same ma we go sure $5 dollar confirm DPM Teo tried to assure the netizens: Come and try it for yourself, like Cher Pheng, our Pasir Ris resident who had his lunch there and posted this up. When DPM Teo starts advertising $1.80 chicken rice in his constituency, the general election must be near. What do you think? Meanwhile, a blogger has reported that the Tampines restaurant which sold nasi padang to MP Baey Yam Keng for an unbelievably cheap $2.50 has closed [Link] and will be replaced by the popular Al Salam Restaurant: Has MP Baey given Al Madina the kiss of death? What do you think?
  19. I know they famous for their fresh sashimi, but mire than the sashimi, I was blown away by their quality of rice, totally yummy, so good I finish off 3 bowls !

  21. Passing of an Era 1 hour ago I have never posted before but on hearing news that the great Lim Seng Lee Duck Rice is closing by June 2013, I have to write something. Warning: Article/Review below may border on being a little emo and over dramatic. If there is a restaurant that encapsulates the story of the makan nation, it has to be Lim's. From a tender age of 5+ (am mid 30s now), I have patronised this far flung restaurant admist stories of motorbike racing along the "99 corners" road (a.k.a Kent Ridge Road). In all my years of patronage, the food there has never disappointed. If you read the other reviews here, the duck meat is really as good as it gets. It is the combination of the duck meat and the hot porridge doused with luscious gravy that have warmed the stomachs and hearts of many Singaporeans. What is even more charming and rustic of Lim's is that the place has never changed, the staff (that friendly uncle who always insist in speaking English and give you a feeling that he is just estimating your bill rather than calculating) are the same, the look is the same, the drinks are the same.. Everything you see, eat and feel there is a page out of the 1960s. There are very few places left in Singapore that has such tradition and remain staunchly "unfranchised". I will be going there very frequently until the very end.
  22. Picture is self explanatory. Not bad huh? I think Singaporeans still got hope after all. By the way, does anyone know where this hawker is at? I will wear No. 4 go look for him
  23. Any avid drinkers here? anyone knows any shops in singapore that sell sake, excluding NTUC or supermarkets.. I've recalled seeing some shops around before, just a handful as I remember it to be but my memory fails me. I can't remember where I've seen them. Anyone knows of good places? Much appreciate.
