About Pan Pacific Singapore   Pan Pacific Singapore is the perfect example of why you should ‘never judge a book by its cover’. The hotel looks unassuming from the outside, perhaps even a little too ordinary. But that will change the moment you step into their lobby. Their dazzling atrium features pod-shaped lantern seats surrounded by a reflection pool which allows hotel guests to dine or lounge in private. We were here recently to check out Pan Pacific's SG50 staycation package, which starts at SGD 258 ++ - a remarkable price for a 5 star hotel. It's even priced lower than...

The Humble Tripod   A tripod is one of the most useful accessories in any photographer's arsenal of gadgets. What an irony then that most of us hate bringing our tripods on our vacations. There are many reasons for photographers thinking of tripods as irritations: they are cumbersome, take too much time to pack and set up, and takes up far too much space in our luggages.  I hope to share in my this article six situations where tripods are absolutely in the quest to shoot the perfect picture. Rediscover and appreciate the humble tripod and hopefully learn to love it again.   1. To...

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...
