Hear what some Influencers have to say about their personal experience below:
Starting your day off by gulping down a glass of milk might seem like a quick and nutritious start to your day.
Milk drinking is something I believe many of us get used to from childhood, and many carry well into adulthood. And we all know the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, whether it is consuming a balanced diet or engaging in physical activities.
Celebrating more than 80 years of delivering wholesome nutrition, MAGNOLIA continues its legacy of sharing the pure goodness of milk with the new MAGNOLIA Plus Lo-Fat Hi-Cal UHT Milk with Oats.
Touted as the most important meal of the day, breakfast nurtures the body with the right nutrients for a healthy boost of energy to kick-start the day. Whether young or old, the body needs to refuel with breakfast after a good night’s sleep. Consumption of breakfast has diverse benefits – not only does a balanced and delicious breakfast perk up the senses, breakfast intake has been observed to help with weight management and to reduce the risk of stroke!
A classic staple at breakfasts all over the world is oats with milk, appreciated as a delicious dose of double hearty goodness. Rich in dietary fibres, minerals and vitamins, oats have long been associated with many health benefits. Oats are also a wonderful source of betaglucan, which is a form of a soluble dietary fibre. Strongly linked to reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases3, beta-glucan contributes to a decrease in blood pressureand it is recognised to have cholesterol-lowering properties, helping to care for the heart. Regular intake of oat is also connected to improvements in gut health, and aids satiety control by satisfying hunger due to its high fibre content.
Over the decades, MAGNOLIA has been an essential breakfast companion for many generations, delivering the nutrition needed to start every day right and earning its reputation as a trusted household name. Now, the new MAGNOLIA Plus Lo-Fat Hi-Cal UHT Milk with Oats makes it even easier and more convenient to drink up much-needed nutrients and minerals every morning! Available in multipacks of six, MAGNOLIA Plus Lo-Fat Hi-Cal UHT Milk with Oats is the only UHT milk offering the pure goodness of oats and beta-glucan in Singapore. With a delicious blend of nutrient-dense milk and wholesome oats, MAGNOLIA Plus Lo-Fat Hi-Cal UHT Milk with Oats is higher in calcium and lower in saturated fat than regular milk. Furthermore, the new variant carries the Healthier Choice Symbol (HCS) by Health Promotion Board (HPB), and it is also certified halal.
From July 2018, consumers will be able to enjoy their morning boost with multipacks of six 230ml MAGNOLIA Plus Lo-Fat Hi-Cal UHT Milk with Oats, available at the Recommended Selling Price (RSP) of S$4.70 at leading supermarkets and hypermarkets.

If you are seeking a night out with friends for a talk, and enjoy a cocktail in a comfortable environment, check out Elixir Bar, a Bespoke cocktail bar in a multi-concept F&B space in the heart of Orchard.
Helming Elixir Bar as its head mixologist is Vladyslav Buzko, a 24-year-old Ukrainian who relocated to Singapore less than a year ago. Since 2016, Vlad has participated in competitions such as the Marie Brizard UAE Cocktail Championship, Monin Cup 2016 UAE and Chivas Master 2017, emerging as one of the final contenders in all three competitions.
We had a chat with the handsome mixologist behind the bar’s alchemy-inspired cocktails, and find out a little bit more about what goes behind the scene and what are some of the plans he have for Elixir Bar menu.
What inspired you to be a bartender?
I started as a waiter in my 1st year in University. That’s when I started noticing and admiring the passion that bartenders put in their work to make it so enjoyable and fun. Also, my experience as a cook isn’t as fun as I realised that I enjoy communicating with the guests and yet I was unable to do so when I’m working in the kitchen. Eventually, I decided to join the bar-school and started working as a bartender at the age of 19 years old.
What have you learned along the way?
Oh! I’ve learnt plenty in my career. Mostly about different types of liquors, providing great services and also a bit of insight into the psychology of people.
Most interestingly, I get to speak to the guest and understand the story of his/her life.
Where have you worked before? Who are your mentors?
Apart from my working experience in Ukraine, I’ve worked at Doha St. Regis 5 star hotel in Qatar. I then move to Dubai and worked in Four Seasons DIFC as a member of their preopening team. My one and only mentor was Mario Farulla, Italian mixologist. He has a great sense of humour and service standard.
What is the most important skill a bartender should have?
I believe that the most important skill that a bartender should have is social skills. It involves being friendly, polite, funny, empathise, communicable and many more..
What's your cocktail-making style in in three words?
The most important factor is to understand what your guests need. Even if u failed once, don’t be discouraged. For example, there is no perfect mojito that can satisfy everyone. Some might find it too sweet while others will find it too sour or lacking of alcohol content. So, I strongly believe in understanding each guest’s feedback and modify the drink to satisfy him/her.
Your cocktails have very creative names. How do you come up with them?
I get the inspiration from the bar name, Elixir bar. Therefore, my menu is based on mythology and magic potion. The link between name and menu is what makes this place special. So, if you feel that you need magical power or potions, come down to Elixir bar.
What trends have you spotted in cocktails?
I think it will be liquid food and we might be having that soon! We are looking to create interesting drinks that are infused with Asian flavours such as Tom Yam or Chicken Rice Mocktails.
What are your plans for Elixir Bar menu?
We have just launched the new Elixir Bar menu and I’m collecting more feedbacks from the guests at the moment. I’m thinking of adding new potions relating to new mythological Gods in my menu.
Where do you head on your night off?
After I finished my work, the only one place waiting for me is my bed.
Na… I’m joking! I’ll usually visit different bars and clubs after work. So, catch me around town!

Acne was my biggest nightmare during my secondary school days. On some days when I woke up, I just do not feel like going to the school with my bad acne on my face (especially when I have them on my nose or above my lips). I felt so uncomfortable and embarrassed about my skin condition.
When I was asked to join in to take photo, I tend to avoid them. I have trouble looking others in the eye, while others completely avoid all social situations. If you felt the same, you are totally not alone.
Now as I grew older, the acne may be gone but leaving behind on my face are the scars and enlarged pores causes by the acne. Sometime when people commented about my “mo-peng” (Hokkien dialect for having a pockmarked face) face, I will feel so sad.
I have tried many products to treat them but none actually gave a good result in shrinking the pores. I even resort in putting those bb cream on my face to make my skin look smoother but I realised it is not a long term solution to it.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to gently stimulate natural collagen growth, improve pores, remove irregular pigmentation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Stimulating collagen production in our skin texture, an even skin tone, and a decrease in pore size. Those with acne scarring will also notice a marked improvement. The laser can be used to rejuvenate many areas on the body, including the face, hands, neck and chest.
Laser can stimulate collagen production in our skin, and as new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are decreased. Additionally, as the laser light penetrates age spots and other pigmentation, these areas are broken apart and absorbed into the skin. Patients report, and studies have also confirmed that laser skin rejuvenation results in a refreshed appearance and smoother skin.
The Tribeam laser used for skin rejuvenation is one of the safest lasers on the market today, and the procedure has very little risk of complications. Patients of all skin types can be safely treated – including those with tanned skin.
How is the procedure like?
I like it as there is no downtime. There is an invisible laser beam which is directed at my face, heating up the deeper layers of the dermis to stimulate collagen production. The Tribeam laser offers a very comfortable treatment and the sensation can be described as a “tingling” feeling.
How long is the treatment session?
One session usually take approximately 45 minutes as there are other treatments involved along with Tribeam such as Cool touch, Shaplight and microderm/ chemical peel depending on the individual skin type. Some patients will experience mild to moderate redness on your face and don't worry as it is normal. But the redness usually fades within an hour after treatment. For the ladies, you can still put on your makeup immediately and resume their daily activities. For me, I don't use any make up and I still continue to go for my work.
How do I feel about the treatment?
I only experience minimal discomfort and the treatment is safe. Doctor Ng Hong Yi is very professional and experienced.
What are the after-care for such treatment?
Doctor advised me to stay away the sun for 1 to 2 weeks after my laser treatment. Yes, do apply sun block everyday.
Waiting for my treatment
Treatment started and that is the machine Dr Ng used on my face.
After treatment, my skin is slightly red but it is not pain at all.
This was taken on the same day 10 minutes after the treatment.
I feel my skin looking good and I feel so much confident! I will definitely visit the clinic again for another session to have better result.
