    BottlesXO, Wine and Beer to your Door, When Needed

    I once had a dinner party. It was just a few friends, six of us in total. Since I don’t really drink, I had a couple of bottles of wine in the back and thought nothing of it. Each invited duo arrived with their own bottle of wine so...
  • Alexiares & Ani

    Alexiares & Ani, Skincare and the Source of Eternal Youth

    I’ve done my rounds with skincare and beauty brands over the years. A follower of trends and a tryer of anything beautifully marketed and packaged. Years ago, I would pour hundreds of dollars into buying product. SK-II, Clarins, Shu Uemura, even a sample pot of La Prairie made it...
  • Shake Your Wellness Bar

    What does Engineering, Mr Olympia and Shake Your Wellness Bar have in Common?

    For me, it now seems “normal” in Singapore to find that the most unlikely, disparate connections have something in common. In this case, it is newly opened Shake Your Wellness Bar in the CBD (Ground Level 1, Republic Plaza, Raffles Place). The latest venture by Luca Prandi, Italian-born entrepreneur, opened in March and is a...
  • Tekkie Help

    Helping You Fix Up Your Tech Issues – Tekkie Help

    I have a husband, The Vegetarian, who is quite a technical person. Ever since I’ve known him, he’s been tinkering with this device or pulling apart that computer. Every tech issue in our house has been fixed by him. A page of computer code intrigues him as much as coffee intrigues me! (Check...
  • Red Brush Art Tanjong Beach

    Red Brush Art, a Journey of Hobby to Business

    Could this be a match made in heaven? So many business owners I’ve talked to have bemoaned the fact that they had started their enterprise because of a passion. They absolutely loved what they were doing.  Unfortunately, the day-to-day running of the business became such a big part of their endeavors...
  • Pollen Executive Chef Steve Allen

    Chef Talk: Steve Allen about Pollen

    I’ll admit that I was a little bit starstruck when I walked into Pollen to interview Chef Steve Allen. Near the end of last year, Chef Steve took over the kitchens at Pollen, Singapore’s iconic and beautiful fine dining restaurant and bistro housed in the Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay....
  • The Hangar Singapore

    Café Interviews: The Hangar for Good Times and Great Coffee

    It has been a few years now since I started frequenting The Hangar on Arab Street. Read our original review here. Yes, it is still one of my favourites, a café that I will go out of my way to visit. The food is fab, the coffee is awesome, it is...

    How to Have the Best Toys Without the Clutter

    When we moved from Australia to Singapore, the clan back at home inherited a huge range of toys, baby items and playthings. We had plenty to leave behind, much of which had been the favourite toy for about a month before something else became a favourite… Why did we buy...
  • Chef Talk: Stephan Zoisl about Chef’s Table

    There are chefs and then there are chefs that amaze. For me, Chef Stephan Zoisl is one of those chefs that amaze. I remember the first time I went to Chef’s Table. They had only just opened their doors and I was treated to an eight-course dinner that was...
