Best Ulu Restaurants In Singapore   In a country that is becoming increasingly populated by the day, we are always caught up in the hustle and bustle, fighting crowds and enduring long queues just for a simple meal. It's hard to find a quiet place to have some privacy, or just to engage in some decent conversation with friends or a loved one. Sometimes, it’s good to take time off and go on a short drive outside the city, exploring quieter areas. It also doesn’t hurt to surprise your partner with a a bit of romance once in a while. But...

Every November, the city gets a great deal of epicurean dreamers heading down to Margaret River for the annual Gourmet Escape.

The Most Fun Science Class At Science Centre   The Science Centre has been around for 37 years. I recently went back to the Science Centre after eons, with Jensen and his two daughters. It’s a nice surprise to know that the Science Centre is still flourishing, with new exhibitions popping up every few months. The Science Centre is all about creating a learning environment that focuses on engaging the five senses. Spending a day at the Science Centre is an excellent bonding activity for parents and their children, which is an effective way to get the kids to pry away...

Types Of Singaporean Couples   You've met your significant other and you never thought love could feel so good.

Everything that your partner does is right and you want to show off this flawless being to the universe. Hey, no one said it was a bad thing (or is it?).  Just like people, romance varies. We all have different ways of expressing our affection to our partners. There is no right or wrong way to say "I love you" but admittedly, we all...

Smallest Homes In The World   It's not the size of the house - it's the way you live in it. The smallest 3-room HDB flat has a floor area of 60 square meters, or approximately 645 square feet. Our Social Studies classes have taught us how land-scarce Singapore is, and how we need to utilise our limited spaces well. We have already compiled a list of ways to maximise the space in your house, but the houses in this list make us look like utter novices. The following homes are way smaller than your average HDB flat but are still extremely...

Visit Hokkaido   Mount Iou - "Naked Mountain" in local Ainu lingo. It's an active volcano 510m tall. At the lower regions, crevices spew sulphur crystals. It smells like a huge group of people passing wind at the same time here. Initiated by the Hokkaido Tourism Board in 2012, this "Visit Hokkaido" tourism drive aims to acquaint more Singaporeans with the charm of Hokkaido. In its first year, local travel agencies were invited to visit Hokkaido. On the second, professors from selected local schools were invited. For this year's event (held 23rd Nov to 28th Nov 2014), the Hokkaido Tourism Board...

About The Prawn Star   The Prawn Star is a new restaurant at Duxton Hill, opened on 21st November 2014. It sits among the other trendy eateries, watering holes, and concept stores that populate Duxton Hill. Setting foot in the store, your first thought would be that Prawn Star has an identity crisis -  despite their Caucasian servers, they do seafood tze char, but with Vietnamese and other Asian influences.  But Prawn Star is based off a typical Melbournian dining experience, with a focus on fresh seafood and enhanced natural flavours - their Asian elements are inspired by immigrants. Prawn Star doesn't...

Discovering Pulau Ubin With MND   If you asked me about Pulau Ubin a few weeks ago, I’d probably have nothing much to say. After all, my memories of the island were strictly limited to my OBS experience back when I was in secondary school where I had to rough it out for a week. Needless to say, Pulau Ubin wasn’t really my thing. But that was before I stepped foot onto this island again a few weekends ago. It was like stepping into a part of Singapore where time has stood still and life was much simpler. Little did we...

About Changi Recommends' Wifi Router   One of the many headaches I encounter when travelling overseas is having to figure out a way to stay connected. Sure, local SIM cards exist, and in the case of countries like Australia require complicated sign-up processes. If you’re a frequent traveller, you understand too well the hassle of keeping multiple SIM cards on hand for use in different countries. I only wish I had heard of Changi Recommends’ new Global Wifi Router earlier. Available at all terminals, these Wifi devices are easily accessible and convenient for any traveller. To connect, all you have to...

About Okinawa, Japan   I've never been to Japan, so when the Okinawa prefecture invited us to visit, I replied with a resounding yes! We spent five fun-filled days in Okinawa, coming back happy, well-fed, and inspired to keep travelling and seeing more of the world.  Okinawa isn't as popular a tourist destination as Tokyo or Kyoto, so for those who don't know much about it, Okinawa lies at the southern part of Japan, which comprises hundreds of the Ryukyu Islands in a chain. Its capital is Naha City and the culture and people here are different from the mainland but...

About Daniel Wellington   Watches are intimately personal - the one I wear was given to me by my mother as a birthday present almost a decade ago. It stopped working 2 years ago due to a fault, and the manufacturer had difficulties bringing in replacement parts because it's an old model. Still, it remains on my wrist, telling the correct time only twice a day. It is old, chipped, and broken, but it means more to me than most other watches. You could have a watch story to tell too, or may even be looking to write your first one....

The Best Truffle Dishes in Singapore   It’s truffle season! These rare mushrooms are one of the most expensive foods in the world. In fact, Hong Kong billionaire and father of Macau’s gambling industry, Stanley Ho, reportedly spent $330,000 on 1kg of white truffle in 2010. That’s almost $330 per shaving! Thankfully, you don’t have to be a billionaire to enjoy the explosion of flavour truffles bring to your palate. It’s earthy, aromatic taste goes well with almost everything and more Singaporean restaurants are starting to incorporate truffles into their menus. Like the special pigs that forage for truffles in Italy,...

After all, there is something to celebrate - the success of the #SaveZouk campaign. As regular partygoers know, there was a scare this year when Zouk announced that its lease was expiring at the end of the year.
