Myths about blogging in Singapore    Many things come to mind when you hear the word "blogger". I hear 2 pieces of criticism often: A blogger shouldn't be classified a blogger just because he/she owns a blog People consider themselves models because they pose in front of cameras, and photographers because they own DSLRs I'm not sure how people define "blogger" nowadays.

About Salt Grill & Sky Bar   The cuisine at Salt Grill is quintessentially Australian with bursts of Asian influence that appeal even to the fussiest eater. Owner Luke Mangan heads several award winning restaurants in the region, including the chef’s hat restaurant glass brasserie in Sydney. Having lived in Sydney for four years and hearing so much about the glass brasserie, I was excited to finally have the opportunity to try the food for myself and check out their newly renovated interior and spring menu. Perched at the top of ION Orchard, the restaurant's new makeover boasts a private dining area on...

It becomes clear Marina Square has taken great care in selecting its tenants, because you will not find large chain restaurants in this wing. I recently brought my date to the Prosecco buffet brunch (SGD$40++ per pax) at Nuvo, a new promising restaurant tucked at the very end of the wing. Access to the restaurant is also possible via the scenic boardwalk along building. Nuvo prides itself as a contemporary Italian-Japanese fusion restaurant. Helmed by Chef Mark Richards of...

It's right in the city   M2 Academy, located in the heart of Orchard, is bucking the trend.

About Brainy Moves   When I was first told about Brainy Moves, I was intrigued. It seemed to be some sort of physical movement class meant to help improve brain functions. There were testimonials from parents that said that just after 8 sessions, a P5 boy's test scores improved and even his teacher was surprised and asked how did he do it without knowing about his Brainy Moves sessions. Reading about it was already interesting enough, so I jumped at the opportunity to try a session ourselves. When we got to the Brainy Moves studio, the kids had been napping in the car on the way over....
