Recipes for Cheese Lovers   If you're like me and enjoy grocery shopping even though your pantry's already fully stocked, chances are you would have seen Perfect Italiano's range of cheeses in the supermarkets. Personally I prefer cheeses with milder tastes, especially those hot, toasty and melted ones fresh from the oven. I love the versatility of cheeses which have the potential to amp up any dish. In this recipe guide I'll show you two super simple cheese dishes anyone can attempt. We hope these recipes will be helpful even for our readers who have not baked before! Go get your...

Land of the Rising Sun, in Singapore   Source: ©JNTO - 'Kimono Festival' in Tokamachi in Niigata Prefecture Every year, we plan trips to Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto or Hokkaido, and dream of immersing ourselves in Japanese culture and festivities in the midst of blooming cherry blossoms or pristine white snow-capped mountains. Little do we know, we can actually experience some of Japan right here in Singapore. I'm not simply talking about having a meal over some sushi, sashimi or sake. I'm talking about celebrating traditional cultural events and festivals such as Oshogatsu (Japan New Year, 1 Jan), Hinamatsuri (Doll Festival, 3 Feb),...

About Hot Tomato   When Hot Tomato first started, many locals were pleasantly surprised as they offered a unique concept not found anywhere else in Singapore. People love steak and pasta. So why not have the best of both worlds and have them together? And with a super low price of $9.50 NETT students can get a side of pasta, a main steak and an endless supply of beverage. Even without this student deal, the menu is still wallet friendly and that's why we've included Hot Tomato in our list of 18 most delicious meals in Singapore under $15.   Here's...

15 Singaporean Fashionistas To Follow on Instagram   Instagram is my ultimate guilty pleasure. Except that I don't feel guilty about it. Honestly, whoever created Instagram really knew what they were doing and if their goal was to halt productivity forever, they succeeded. I know some people (Me.) who check their Instagram feed every couple of minutes. Like when they should be studying. Or sleeping. Or breathing.  My favourite thing about Instagram has to be that its a great place to get inspired. Be it places to visit, the latest food craze or my personal favourite - fashion inspiration. And no one...

About Jara Petit Cheesecups   Flavours (from left to right): Lavender, Oreo, Matcha, Banoffee, Strawberry, Lemon, Durian, Original, Blueberry I know what you're thinking - WHAT ARE THESE GORGEOUS BABIES AND WHERE CAN I GET THEM?! Keep calm and breathe. You're looking at the lovely cheesecups from Jara Petit. They're basically miniature cheesecakes baked in a cupcake-like form, making it sooo much easier to consume.

About Mouth Restaurant    We weren't expecting much when we visited Mouth Restaurant. In fact, we were more curious to check out one of the Amex 30licious $30 Deals that were going on - Mouth Restaurant was one of their participating outlets. Mouth Restaurants always seemed a bit too "cheena" looking to us and that's probably why we never walked in before, although we've seen them around plenty.  What would they know about contemporary taste buds right? Oh how wrong we were. With beginnings that can be traced back to the 80′s in Hong Kong, we learnt that Mouth Restaurant has been serving...

Cheapest Buffets in Kuala Lumpur   To me, buffets are the best value option out there. Having a wide array of dishes laid before your eyes, from spaghetti carbonaras to tempuras, rendang chickens to lamb cutlets, grilled tenderloins to baked oysters with cheese topping, and then knowing you get to taste them all. I’m getting hungry just imagining it.  The only downside to buffets? More often than not, the price can be pretty hefty. That is why in this guide, we’ll be exploring buffets that won’t cost a quarter of our monthly salaries. Sounds good? Let's get started!   1. Tai...

GetSetGo - Your One-Stop Online Travel Store   If there's one thing I absolutely hate about travelling, it's packing. I can never bring myself to pack my stuff until the last minute...which is bad, especially if you tend to forget things. Especially if you suddenly find that you're missing half your travel essentials.  If you're a very busy person, you would understand the pain of having to rush down to the nearest mall just to buy your travel essentials. But, if you're too lazy to drag yourself to the shopping centre, fret not! Just do your shopping online. Wait, what? Yup,...

About Ramen Matsuri   When people have a hankering for Ramen, they usually go for the pork variety. One chef, Kenichi Ikehata wants to change this as he launches his new culinary creation, the Sakura Chicken Ramen. After honing his craft for years in the famed Marutama Ramen, he decided to open his own restaurant. The great thing about the Sakura Chicken used here is how the chickens are bred entirely without the use of any antibiotics or growth hormones. Instead they are fed with lactobacillus - a friendly bacteria that naturally combats harmful bacteria so as to enhance your immune system...

Singapura Sakura   Source: Instagram - @ministryofprint I'm sure we've all seen the beautiful pink and white flowers carpeting our roads and fields in the recent weeks. Even if you've been living under a rock, or have been hiding in the comfort of your home to escape from the unrelenting heat, scrolling through your Instagram feed would have informed you of these glorious sightings.  In fact, I double-checked the location to confirm that my friends weren't posting these pictures from Japan, but from Singapore. It really is pretty spectacular. I mean, I had expected this: But what I saw on my screen...
