About PARKROYAL on Pickering   Being Chinatown residents, we've watched the development of PARKROYAL on Pickering with curious eyes - from its construction to its opening in 2012. From below, greeneries from their lush 15,000m² sky-gardens dangle over, wrapping the hotel in its beautiful landscaping. It's as if the hotel was built in a gigantic garden, complete with larger than life bird-cages. We've always wanted to have a staycation here to see what it was like on the inside. Designed by internationally acclaimed local architectural firm WOHA, the theme that runs through this 367-room hotel is that of wellness, renewal and...

About Waiting For Godot   I have long had a love-hate relationship with Samuel Beckett’s play, Waiting For Godot. I first encountered it in university, and felt the immense agony that washed over me as I watched an adaptation of the production — a play that showed that life was tedious and meaningless isn't terribly uplifting. And yet, I was utterly charmed by Beckett’s eloquence — with few words, he articulates the pains of existing, the effort to get through the day as it wore on, and the fatigue of putting on an act of being when there really is nothing...

About Waiting For Godot   Image Credits: ABA Productions Written by Samuel Beckett, Waiting For Godot has been hailed as one of the most important English language plays in the 20th century. This Irish production, now in Singapore for only the second time, stars two tramps who get up to hijinks while waiting for Godot. Intellectuals will love this play, but be warned - fans of Michael Bay-esque productions will find it an uncomfortable two hours. This production stars Neill Fleming as Vladimir, Patrick O’Donnel as Estragon, Paul Kealyn as Pozzo, and Nick Devlin as Lucky. We managed to snag an interview with Peter Reid,...

Beautiful HDB Toilets   An average person spends one and a half years of thier life in the loo. If that’s not incentive enough to make it as comfortable and gorgeous as you can, I don’t know what is. Most people believe that staying in HDB flats means you wouldn’t spend extra time in the toilet - it’s simply too cramped in there! And even if you start a remodelling project, a functional toilet takes priority over a pretty one. Toilets all look the same anyway, right? Wrong. Here are 16 HDB toilets with beautiful thrones you wouldn't mind occupying for...

Most Famous Singapore Urban Legends   All of us know Singapore as the bustling metropolis we live in. However, despite being the practical Singaporeans that we are, local urban legends still linger in our minds. Whether or not we have heard of them before, these urban legends have the potential to send shivers down our spines. Remember those old wives’ tales that our parents told to scare us from doing dangerous things? Well, that’s just one type of urban legend. Then, there are the dubious ones that are spread by word-of-mouth. Today, in an age where our lives revolve around the...

About Hungry Heroes   One can only imagine how much food Batman eats. Fighting crime burns more than a few calories, and his butler must be kept busy preparing his meals every night. We might not fight crime like Batman, but we get hungry too after a day in school or at work! Occupying a two-storey shophouse off Little India is Singapore’s equivalent of The Justice League HQ. Walking in, you'll be greeted by your favourite superheroes, all encased in glass boxes on one wall of the restaurant. The opposite wall houses posters and artworks. The impressive assembly of superhero collectibles...

About Regent Singapore    Christmas season is just around the corner and with so many options, it's not always easy to decide where to dine during the festive season. We had the privilege of checking out what Regent Singapore has in store for diners this holiday season, at their swanky Presidential Suite recently. I was doing little somersaults in my head when I saw the spread of festive treats prepared by the talented chefs from Regent Singapore's F&B outlets - Basilico, DolcettobyBasilico, TeaLounge and Manhattan.  Some of the offerings we had are available for takeaway - Dolcetto by Basilico has a "Party-to-Go" menu -...

Learning To Make Pineapple Tarts    I eat a few pineapple tarts during Chinese New Year, but I know many who conquer them with a YOLO attitude because pineapple tarts are sweet, sinful, and oh-so-divine.  So I was looking forward for my first ever hands-on experience in a baking class with my colleague Amanda, learning the art of making pineapple tarts at the SCS Creative Pineapple Tart Baking Workshop held at Chantilly Culinary Studio. The pineapple tarts that you buy off the shelves are a bit too commonplace and we attempted to switch thing up. Do not underestimate the importance of butter in pineapple...
