Our latest mission to up your Instagram game brought us to the Joo Chiat neighbourhood where we uncovered colourful shophouses, a vertical playground, creative murals, and architecture.
Nailing an Instagram-worthy photo can be a tricky thing but always keep an eye out for even the most unlikely of places. Remember, don’t just do this for the gram. Have fun and explore all the ways you can frame your shots because that creative challenge is a huge reason why avid photographers can keep revisiting the same ol’ place.
Find your own ways up the ante but here’s our guide to how you can start!
You’ve got your luggage packed for your staycation and you’re ready for that well-deserved break. Trouble is, you’ve got to drop your fur-kid off with a dog sitter or at a pet hotel while you’re away.
Sometimes, that means more than just a hassle to the start of your holiday. There’s separation anxiety and that nagging worry about whether the doggo’s getting as good a treatment as you would give.
To help, here’s our list of dog-friendly hotels so your little BFF can join you for breakfast-in-bed and get a getaway too. Go ahead. It’s time to pamper yourself with your furry friend by your side.
Don & Tori is a modern Japanese restaurant that sets the bar pretty high for dons, makis, and yakimono (grilled or pan-fried) items as long as you’re not a purist. It’s a serene enclave in the Central Business District that joins the heavyweights on Tras Street.
A quiet lunch crowd trickled in when they opened soon after noon into the comfortable fusion vibes of old meets new, East meets West.
Their live sushi bar will entertain you as you watch your orders being assembled and made. There’s almost something for everyone, vegetarians and non. It’s hard to say which dishes make up the highlights of this place because every one we tried were show stoppers in terms of both presentation and taste.
The Shilin-inspired Night Market opens to the public for two weekends (from 19 to 21 April & 26 to 28 April 2019) at [email protected], Singapore Turf Club.
This Taiwanese-themed street festival is held at a 200 000 ft² space with over 300 stalls and different vendors segmented into four zones: Eat, Shop, Play, Fun. Despite there being enough nosh, fashion, lifestyle and design goods to see, the event was generally underwhelming.
Brought to you by Invade Industry who also hosted Artbox Singapore and other flea markets in Singapore, you would expect the event to be better organised. The queue at most of the stalls are between 30 to 90 minutes. And there’s a long snaking line just to enter Shilin-inspired Night Market.
Just to be clear, the Shilin Singapore is a Shilin-inspired Night Market concept and not the actual Shilin Night Market from Taiwan.
With this week’s preview of Jewel Changi Airport, the hottest topic in local news and in conversations overheard in the commute to and fro from work has now reached fever pitch. Jewel is slated to officially open in just six more days on Wednesday, 17 April 2019.
Within Jewel’s distinctive dome-shaped facade of glass and steel is a 10-storey mega complex that houses 280 retails and food and beverage outlets. The beautifully designed structure, which combines a marketplace with an urban park, encapsulates Singapore as a garden city. It is directly connected to the Arrival Hall of Terminal 1 in Changi Airport and linked to Terminals 2 and 3 via air-conditioned link bridges.
Before you begin your countdown, let us add to your excitement with sneak peeks of what is to come. We included everything from attractions to explore, dining options for comfort eating, and all the retail therapy from shiny new shops that you can get.
