April zipped by way faster than we thought it did and in a blink of an eye, it’s going to be May soon.
If you think that May is a month that has nothing exciting for you to look forward to, well, there is a whole line-up of events and activities that we know will pique your interest. This includes Peroni Sunset Cinema, AIA Glow Festival and the famous Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar.
May is also the month for music lovers with exciting upcoming performances by popular artists such as Mayday Parade, Troye Sivan and Jason Mraz. If you love a good musical, you can also look forward to watching The Phantom of the Opera live at Marina Bay Sands.
Are you excited already?
Humans have been consuming milk for thousands of years and it has become a very important part of our diet. As compared to sugary and carbonated drinks, milk is loaded with calcium and minerals which are beneficial for our health.
We consume milk on a daily basis—from pairing it with cereals to adding it into our cake recipes. Even mum constantly reminds us to finish a glass of milk before bedtime when we were younger.
If you have always wondered about the health benefits of drinking milk at night, here are 7 Reasons Why You Should Drink Milk Before You Sleep. READ ON

From air-popped popcorn to strawberry-banana smoothie, here is our guide to 10 guilt-free supper ideas that are under 150 calories each. Now you know what to eat when you are unable to ignore that growling tummy.
Singapore has no shortage of scenic places to take a stroll through whether for your health or plainly just to get out of the house. There are a plethora of gorgeous spots here to immerse yourself in nature, exercise, chill with your loved ones or just have some alone time.
But Singapore, contrary to what the media portrays, is far more than just Gardens By The Bay. One of the more picturesque ones out of the lot is the iconic Henderson Waves. The bridge stands 36 metres above Henderson Road and is Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge, providing people with a spectacular view of Keppel Harbour.
A food market serving Singapore-style street food in New York? This is exactly what author/TV personality star Anthony Bourdain – known for his book Kitchen Confidential, Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations – is working on next.
He has signed a deal to open his first large-scale food market in Manhattan, which will reflect his passion for international street food.
Anthony Bourdain confirmed the project: “I am indeed working on this project—carefully assembling a dream list of chefs, operators, street food and hawker legends from around the world—in hopes of bringing them together in one New York City space. As the greatest city in the world, I’ve long felt that we should have the kind of delicious, diverse food centers that Singapore (for instance) enjoys. And, in fact, it is my hope that an important component of this project will be representatives of Straits hawker masters. My likes are pretty well known: dai pai dong in Hong Kong, Boqueria in Spain, hawker centers in Singapore, street tostadas in Ensenada. To the extent that I can help bring those things home to New York, along with a truly interesting collection of home grown innovators, I will be very, very pleased. If nothing else, I hope to soon be able to enjoy a really good Chicken Rice in NYC.”
While surprising, it is actually little wonder this is happening because Anthony Bourdain is known to be a big fan of Singapore local food. This is great news for us as more people will get to taste our popular local food. This might just pave the way for more Singapore restauranteurs and chefs to expand and venture to the United States.
New York City, watch out for Singapore street food!
Traveling is part of our job at Ladyironchef, and our lodging changes from one hotel to another. Many times, we check in to luxurious rooms and suites – big beds with pressed sheets, clean and vacuumed floors, a mini bar full of drinks and snacks… and sometimes, we take for granted all that are put in place nicely for our experience.
Have you ever wondered what goes behind the scenes? How are your rooms cleaned? How does the hotel facilitate the numerous check-ins and check-outs daily? Sometimes, we would stop and talk with housekeeping staff when we bump into them along the corridors, but all that we could learn and understand from such transient conversations are but superficial information.
This month, we had the privilege to attend a tour behind the scenes of Sheraton Towers, and learned in-depth the various backend procedures and systems. And because it was such an educational and enriching tour, we would like to share some insights with you.

I have been having shoulder and neck problems for a few years, but I did not seek help as I brushed it off, thinking it was just a trivial issue. Earlier in February this year, I started going to Orchard Health Clinic to consult Dr Martin John. Dr Martin specialises in osteopathy and uses techniques such as soft tissue massage, osteopathic manipulation, joint articulation and muscle energy.
I am currently undergoing a regimed programme to treat my problems, and with his expertise, my condition is improving slowly but surely. Dedicated treatments twice a week and constant reminders from the expert on how to take care of myself, this experience has been so beneficial, and I will be documenting my journey for sharing purposes as I continue to get my condition treated.
I truly believe that Dr Martin is the person to go to if you have any neck, back or joints problems. Orchard Health Clinic is located at #07-22 Park Mall, and you can email them at [email protected] or give them a call at +65 6336 9577.
