Read More Influential Brand Stories by TSL


We recently went behind the scenes with the most influential brands in Singapore. Our mission was simple - to find out the secrets behind their success. We sent our journalists to the front-lines of retail shops and into the steaming kitchens of their restaurants and they came back with 18 original stories.

We found out what it was like to be a Gong Cha Girl for a day. We learned 10 lessons from the tirelessly hard-working Old Chang Kee aunties. We discovered Din Tai Fung's secret recipe to the perfect xiaolongbao. We even tailed a Zalora delivery man for a day to see how they carried out their deliveries so fast. Our team worked hard to produce these stories and we're now really proud to share them with you. It's time to discover something raw and personal - a different perspective from the brands you all know.

To read their stories, click on the logos below!
