The long Chinese New Year (CNY) break is over, but that doesn’t mean the festivity has to end. Enjoy the remnants of CNY at Tigerlily Patisserie — a bakery along Joo Chiat Road — with their limited edition CNY goodies. Traditional CNY snacks are reinvented into intriguing entremets and viennoiserie. Take the iconic pineapple tart for example. Instead of a simple combination of pineapple filling and buttery crust, the Ool-ong Lai Tart ($11) is reformed into a French pastry.

Regardless of how much I love classics, I crave for a little spice every now and then.  Hambaobao serves Asian-inspired burgers at Jalan Besar. You might find its name familiar as it is one of the main attractions at Beauty World Food Centre before it ceased operations in 2019. But it came back stronger than ever, with its own 30-seater air-conditioned space. The Classic Beef Burger ($7.5) had its typical assortment. A nice sear on the patty, a light tang from their homemade tomato sauce, and a melty piece of cheese to tie the elements together. As I mentioned earlier, as much as I love ..read more

Buying a watch for yourself or as a gift can be a nerve-racking task.

Here’s an unconventional dinner spot for Chinese New Year (CNY). Tap Singapore, known for their craft beers, has launched their CNY menu for 2023. Three’s a crowd, but five… If you’re dining in a small group, we recommend the CNY Fortune Set ($298) that is perfect for a group of five. Start the feast with the classic lo hei. The Prosperity Yu Sheng with Abalone could’ve had a larger portion of abalone, but it was a decent plate.  If you’re ordering a la carte instead, this costs $78, while the vegetarian version costs $48.  Next came a sharing platter which comprised roasted pork, sc ..read more

How much does luxury perfume costs? Popular fragrances in 2022, such as Sauvage by DIOR, and No.5 by Chanel average at $150 per bottle. Niche perfume brands can even go up to $300. Unless you already have your signature scent, like Cho Gue-Sung with Le Labo Another 13, then you might want to have a few bottles ready at home. Generally, you’d want at least three scents: an everyday scent, most commonly used for work or school in the day, a night scent for dinner or getting a few drinks, and a special one for special occasions like date night. Not many would want to spend that much on perfumes t ..read more
