Recipes for Cheese Lovers   If you're like me and enjoy grocery shopping even though your pantry's already fully stocked, chances are you would have seen Perfect Italiano's range of cheeses in the supermarkets. Personally I prefer cheeses with milder tastes, especially those hot, toasty and melted ones fresh from the oven. I love the versatility of cheeses which have the potential to amp up any dish. In this recipe guide I'll show you two super simple cheese dishes anyone can attempt. We hope these recipes will be helpful even for our readers who have not baked before! Go get your...

I'm talking about celebrating traditional cultural events and festivals such as Oshogatsu (Japan New Year, 1 Jan), Hinamatsuri (Doll Festival, 3 Feb),...

Even without this student deal, the menu is still wallet friendly and that's why we've included Hot Tomato in our list of 18 most delicious meals in Singapore under $15.   Here's...

15 Singaporean Fashionistas To Follow on Instagram   Instagram is my ultimate guilty pleasure. Except that I don't feel guilty about it. Honestly, whoever created Instagram really knew what they were doing and if their goal was to halt productivity forever, they succeeded. I know some people (Me.) who check their Instagram feed every couple of minutes. Like when they should be studying. Or sleeping. Or breathing.  My favourite thing about Instagram has to be that its a great place to get inspired. Be it places to visit, the latest food craze or my personal favourite - fashion inspiration. And no one...

About Mouth Restaurant    We weren't expecting much when we visited Mouth Restaurant. In fact, we were more curious to check out one of the Amex 30licious $30 Deals that were going on - Mouth Restaurant was one of their participating outlets. Mouth Restaurants always seemed a bit too "cheena" looking to us and that's probably why we never walked in before, although we've seen them around plenty.  What would they know about contemporary taste buds right? Oh how wrong we were. With beginnings that can be traced back to the 80′s in Hong Kong, we learnt that Mouth Restaurant has been serving...
