Getting to know Lombok   This was not an easy piece to write. Lombok is like the amazing secret lover you don’t want people to know of. You canoodle, enjoy days of passionate rendezvous and live to tell a couple of close friends about it, but nothing more. You look through your journal, at the scribbles of what you’d seen and done in Lombok, and flick through pictures that obviously did little justice to the actual sights you beheld - sights you hope would stay engraved in your memory and would never ever forget.   I embarked on this four-day trip...

About Hotpants   Hotpants is the quintessential 70s wardrobe must-have, and is the (you guessed it) inspiration for Dick Lee's play of the same name. The sizzling extramarital affairs, underage pregnancy and suicide attempts - you might just want to grab your Hotpants before reading on.  A revival from its initial debut in 1977, this remake of Hotpants has been an incredible walk down memory lane. Reminiscences about the 1970s, filled with cheeky, quirky and spectacularly entertaining characters ensue. The play showcased three completely contrasting families and the similarities the daughters have with their mothers. The story unfolds as the trio goes...

Just a normal night in Joo Chiat?   Female millenials find themselves in a much luckier position than women who came before us. Our generation has witnessed great leaps in opportunities and standards of living for women. We're getting equal pay for equal work - well almost, I do know it isn't exactly champagne popping time either, our daughters have the same access to education as our sons, and let's face it, campaigning for women to enlist in National Service? Utopia really isn't that far away right?  Wrong. My rude but not entirely unexpected awakening came one evening when I had dinner in...

Portable WiFi that travels with you   Staying connected is always a hassle if you’re a frequent traveller. I love travelling but staying contactable and having access to the internet can be so troublesome. After multiple times switching out my SIM card, paying for excess data and trying to understand the myriad plans each country’s telco offers, it got to a point where I decided that surviving without any connectivity was better.  On our recent trips to Indonesia, I was fully prepared to unplug - which isn’t a bad thing because you can fully focus on soaking up new experiences. However,...
