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...

About The Escape Hunt Experience   The Escape Hunt Experience is not your typical activity - particularly if you’re a claustrophobe. Being stuck in an enclosed area with one hour to find a way out would have been nobody’s idea of fun. That is, till an enterprising Singaporean experienced it in Bangkok and loved it so much that he brought it over to our sunny shores. The Escape Hunt Experience opened in May 2014, and a clue to what makes it different from the competition is in its name. The décor, the tea they serve, and the outfits the gamemasters don...

About Bioskin   I admit I’ve been negligent where skincare is concerned. I don’t have a skincare regime and I barely even moisturize. Needless to say I needed some urgent skin rejuvenation before I started looking older than my actual age.  I had already heard about Bioskin - the skincare and wellness centre that everyone seemed to be raving about. Bioskin was also voted as the Top 1 Brand in the facial centre category in the Influential Brands Survey 2014. I checked out their website and if even Zoe Tay was willing to endorse their services I’m sure their reputation must...

Bus Trips   Some of my fondest memories from childhood involved taking bus trips with my family to Genting Highlands. The waking up early to getting to Golden Mile Complex to catch the bus before dawn had broken. The sleep we had to catch up on while on the rocky road. The amazing time we had at Genting. Granted, I didn't enjoy the waking up early part, but the bus rides with family added more character to the trip than if we had taken a drive up. I'm older now, and those bus rides with my family seemed a lifetime ago,...

10 Types of Singaporean Guys You Will Date   Image Credits: Smithankyou Picture this: you meet your girlfriends for lunch and the inevitable topic of their significant others comes about. In the midst of all the stories, you realise you already predicted these behaviours ages ago in a total “I told you so” moment. Be it good or bad, Singaporean guys tend to create their own stereotypes. We explored 10 possible male personas that we felt typified the kind of guys us girls encounter today. Sure, not all from the male species necessarily fit into these molds but I’m sure some...
