A couple of weeks ago I received an email that excited and intrigued me. The marketing folks promoting Philadelphia Cream Cheese reached out and asked if I would be willing to create a fun, easy […]
So, in the middle of 2014, when I was changing jobs, and was about to sign a contract with one company, an old acquaintance asked me out for coffee. By the end of that coffee, […]
I’d like to take a quick break from writing about food and travel to recommend a bit of musical theatre to anyone staying in (or traveling to) Singapore this holiday season. The Dim Sum Dollies are back, with their first full-length show since 2008. And seeing the show, titled “The History of Singapore Part 2”, is easily one of the best ways to spend your hard earned bucks this festive period. Here’s just a few reasons why I believe that.
Ever since my last trip to Bali, where I spent four idyllic days on the beach at Nusa Dua, I have been constantly thinking about going back. But this time around, I yearned for the lush hills, ravines and lurid green paddy fields of Ubud, which I have fond memories of, from my honeymoon years ago. The therapeutic effects of being enveloped by peace and tranquility was what I desperately needed to dissolve the stress of the daily hustle and bustle of the city.
Okay, so I don’t like to use this site to flog things that often, but as a self-professed shopaholic, I am happy to write about cool products and promotions that I like and that I feel readers might find useful. Earlier this year, I decided to (finally) ditch my first-gen iPad and picked up a Google Nexus 7 (which I love). Part of what prompted me to do so was a great promo deal from StarHub. I got the tablet for almost nothing when I signed up for what I believe is a very reasonable 2-year contract.
Last week, through my day job (yup, I still work — blogging certainly doesn’t pay the bills), I had the enormous pleasure of helping to launch a new social media campaign called #GivingTuesdaySG. And I want every single one of you reading this to join us in this amazing charitable initiative. In a nutshell #GivingTuesdaySG is a social media driven movement to make 3 December 2013 our new national day of giving here in Singapore.
Have you ever been disappointed by a plate of flavourless, badly cooked char kway teow, and know you can make a better version? Or perhaps your mission in life is to cook and preserve Singapore’s hawker food? If you love to cook local fare and have an adventurous heart, you might want to put on an apron and join MediaCorp’s newest reality cooking series, Wok Stars. We think this initiative is a really great one, so I was excited about finding out more about the upcoming program from Lawrence Ng, producer of Wok Stars.
