About Jing Hua Dim Sum has been around for a long time, and so has this eatery. Jing Hua started out in Neil Road 25 years ago, and opened their second branch in Bugis in 2013. While the Neil Road outlet has kept to its traditional roots, the Bugis outlet’s décor is a fusion of modern and olden days. They're known not only for their authentic dim sum, but also their reasonable prices. We recently went to try a variety of their dishes at their Bugis outlet. The Food At Jing Hua Steamed Vegetarian Dumplings First...Last modified on

About AMOY I've heard good things about the latest Far East Hospitality hotel, AMOY, but never imagined they would amass such positive reviews in such a short period of time. With a TripAdvisor rank of #2 out of the 293 hotels in Singapore - they are officially the hottest boutique hotel in the country. A meteoric rise in TripAdvisor Singapore rankings like this has never been seen before, so we were stoked to see what all the hype was about. Like most small boutique hotels, the 37-room AMOY doesn't have a swanky swimming pool or a gym that tries too...Last modified on
About Ramen Champion With the sheer number of ramen shops mushrooming up across the island, it’s not difficult to realise that Singaporeans love their ramen. After all, a piping hot bowl of noodles is always comforting on a cold, rainy day.

But lesser known to the majority of us is the launch of Ramen Champion’s latest Shabu Shabu Ramen concept at its Great World City outlet. Being a huge fan of shabu...

About Madame Tussauds You know the saying “Fake it till you make it”. Well, I am faking to myself that I actually got to be in the same room as Barack Obama, and got to stroke Johnny Depp’s hair.

About Watsons Watsons’ iconic Green-White-Red storefront is a sight I remember since young. As a student, I would see Watsons when I hung out at Takashimaya after school. Today, I see Watsons as I make my way home daily. Since its inception in Singapore in 1988, Watsons has been one of most popular personal care brands in Singapore for its wide variety of products, ranging from beauty accessories to toiletries and health supplements. In addition to the sheer variety of products, Watsons has, in recent years, upped its healthcare platform with its 38 strategically located in-store pharmacies, offering a wider...Last modified on

Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert Hold your horses if you think this musical centres around a lady named Priscilla, and that she lives like royalty in the desert. Well, that’s what I thought when I first saw the title of this musical. Thanks to my overzealous desire to discover what lies behind that title, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, I learned from the internet that it tells of the struggles faced by a community often discriminated by the masses in society: the LGBTQ community. Through media such as musicals and plays, alternative voices can finally be heard. With secrets spilled...

About kyō Cecil Street on a Saturday afternoon is quieter than you’d imagine. The quiet before the storm, a tourist would be forgiven for thinking that nothing interesting could happen here on a weekend. They couldn’t be more wrong. kyō is situated on 133 Cecil Street, its wooden entrance breaking the monotony of the banks and consultancy firms flanking it. Without velvet ropes and a team of security and club staff working the doors, I almost got lost trying to locate the place even though I’ve been here before. That’s the story of a typical nightspot: when daylight shines, the...Last modified on
