Non-Surgical Beauty Enhancements   Let’s face it. Us girls will always try to find problems with our bodies one way or another. We’re either unhappy with how we look, or how we don’t have enough of what other girls have. Some women even go to the extent of going under the knife for elaborate cosmetic surgeries in efforts to achieve their desired look.  While I believe everyone should learn to appreciate and love their body for what it is, it won’t hurt to give your body a little bit of an upgrade and polishing up without the need for permanent invasive...

About Manhattan Bar   Picture courtesy of the Regent Hotel. Manhattan Bar is a glamorous cocktail establishment nestled within the premises of Regent Singapore. Priding itself on using only the finest artisanal spirits and craft bartending, its unfettered opulence draws the upscale crowd by the droves.  When its massive doors closed behind me, I felt as if I had been transported almost a century back in time to the Jazz Age of Gatsby’s era. Surrounded by exquisite decor imbued with the glitzy glamour of the Roaring Twenties, I half expected to see the swish of a Flapper’s fringed dress disappear round...

About Renaza    “When was the last time you went for a facial?” is a question I dread answering.  On the day I visited Renaza, my last facial was an entire year ago in January 2014. Yes, I’m a skincare slob and no, I can’t remember the last time I shaped my brows. Stop judging me right now.  As facials have always been a DIY affair for me, I was thrilled to be visiting Renaza - a one-stop wellness spa with services that pamper you from head to toe. All 8 centres in Singapore boast of world class technology and treatments,...

About TAO Seafood Asia   Think of ancient Chinese folklore, and what inadvertently draws to mind is the image of Nian. The legendary beast lived beneath the sea and preyed on unsuspecting children around the Lunar New Year. Does that strike fear in your heart? Probably not, since we now associate CNY with feasting on our beloved ba kwa and kueh bangkit rather than these elusive predatory monsters. Enter Tao Tie, a greedy beast with an insatiable appetite that eats everything in sight. Helmed by father-son duo Chef Lee Tong Kuon and Adrian Lee, TAO Seafood Asia draws inspiration from this...

About Catching Breath   Photographs courtesy of Andrew West Photography Catching Breath is a stunning work of contemporary art pulled off using a traditional medium - tapestry. While I personally am not very familiar with tapestry, this aptly named piece took my breath away. It features a veiled man looking outwards intently, and the viewer has the choice of whether or not to unveil him to reveal its hidden beauty. I find it difficult to appreciate contemporary art sometimes, especially when it looks like a 3-year-old jumped into a pot of paint and decided to roll on a canvas. But that's...

My Trip At Gardens by the Bay   My first visit to Gardens by the Bay was a rather weak attempt to show off Singapore to a friend who was visiting from New Zealand. Let’s just say I wasn’t the best person for the job. But my second visit to the Gardens the other day was infinitely better with the addition of an element essential to any experience - great customer service provided by our guide.   Clarence, Our Guide For The Day   Clarence Chua is Senior Manager with the Visitor Services team at Gardens by the Bay. He is...

Cheap Food In Orchard Road    Noble quests have always faced skepticism.  Prior to my hunt for meals below $10 in Orchard Road, I surveyed my friends. Some looked at me as if I had just suggested we pool our savings to buy a unicorn. “Siao ah, this is Singapore babe”, they reminded me. One guy suggested McDonald’s. Oh, pure and utter audacity.  Remember the days when Chicken Rice was $1? Me neither, but my parents would. Contrary to popular belief and common Singapore complaints, it’s possible to dine in Orchard Road without burning a hole in your pocket. Here are...

About LPG Endermospa   Me before treatment The first of its kind in Singapore, LPG Endermospa is a spa treatment dedicated to LPG’s patented treatments and products. LPG technology is used by J. Lo, Cameron Diaz and Shu Qi, among other celebrities, as a non-invasive alternative to looking their best on the red carpet.  LPG started when founder Louis-Paul had a car accident which left him in need of physical therapy. After undergoing numerous massage sessions, he realized that due to the human factor, there will always be inconsistencies, leading to unreliable results. He then created a machine that could mimic the...
