Apple Set to Unveil Gold iPhone

Gold iPhone

Only couple of weeks to go before the big event from Apple and the rumour mill is yet again busy churning out news of a new colour for the next-generation iPhone. Recent news of Apple getting all fun and colourful is not really much of a secret anymore. With the iOS 7 and then the colourful budget iPhone, adding yet another colour to its already colourful palette is not much of an issue.

According to AllThingsD, “after years of offering the iPhone in either black and white, will soon offer it in a gold tone, as well. Apple-news siteiMore was first to break the news last Friday, its story corroborated in short order byTechCrunch on Sunday, along with 9to5Mac.”

When iPhone was first launched back in 2007, it only came with one colour, Silver Black. Then iPhone 3G was introduced with a variation of white instead of the standard black. Since then, the rest of the iPhone versions came in either black or white. The only phone I know that comes in gold is a Vertu. Why the new color option now? Gold tones are among the easiest colors to anodize, so technologically it’s an easy option to offer and it’s becoming a more sought-after colour option in China market.

‘Siu Yoke’ Roast Pork at Wong Mei Kee, Pudu [Non-Halal]

Dato preparing the dishes


Restoran Wong Mei Kei or also known as Wong Kee in Pudu is well-known for its succulent and crispy ‘Siu Yoke’ or roast pork – good enough to whet your appetite. Located at the corner shop along Jalan Nyonya in Pudu, somewhere behind Shaw Parade, Restoran Wong Mei Kee has got a reputation for serving the best ‘Siu Yoke’and amazingly keeping their customers waiting patiently. They only begin serving from 12.30pm onwards.

Wall of Fame?

I call it ‘Dato Siu Yoke’ because the owner who prepares the dishes is or supposedly to be a Dato, according to the photo on the restaurant wall. The main attraction to Wong Mei Kee is definitely not the ‘Dato’ but rather the chunky and succulent roast pork they served there.  Even though many foodies claimed that this is the best Siu Yoke in KL, I begged to differ because I’ve tasted much better Siu Yoke than this. However, if you’re talking about the best Siu Yoke within that area of Kuala Lumpur, then I would agree.


Chunky and succulent Siu Yoke

The Siu Yoke has got the right proportion of fats, juicy meat and crispy skin but I feel that it’s a bit way too chunky. Some may like it a lot but I prefer mine with a little less chunky, then it’ll be less fatty.

BBQ Honey-glazed Char Siu

The ‘Char Siu’ or BBQ honey-glazed pork is nice but nothing much to shout about. It shows too when most customers rather wait for the Siu Yoke than to have the Char Siu there. Although there are some customers who go for roast chicken rice, I can also tell that it’s not exactly their best seller.

Lunch at Wong Mei Kee is never cheap, even for a single-portion dish. A normal single-portion Siu Yoke rice will cost you RM12. There were five of us for lunch and we ordered Siu Yoke and Char Siu for five person. We payed RM98 for lunch with iced Chinese tea for all five or us. Although the meal was great but the price can be quite a talking point after lunch. So, unless you’re ready to pay for it, go easy on the Siu Yoke, okay.
