In less than two weeks time, we will be ushering in Lunar New Year with our friends, family and loved ones over reunion dinner and festive snacks. Not to forget, Valentine’s Day is about a month away and Sentosa has put together a series of exciting festivities, auspicious promotions, and fun activities from 21 January to 26 February, themed Love in Springtime (爱在春季).

However, this year was said to be better, scarier and my friends decided to take advantage of the SAFRA card discount at $40.60 (usual $48) for a night of horror fun in Laddaland.
I enjoy how shapes, colours, music and sound invigorate my thoughts and feelings. Through sight and hearing, we can experience various aspects of art beyond our imagination. One evening, I decided to take a break from everything and visit ArtScience Museum and it happened to be the night of ArtScience Late which takes place once a…
No, Little Apple <> isn’t an imitation to Apple’s iPhone 6.
It is an addictive song which has been making its rounds over the internet and got many people across China, singing and dancing! It all began when two creative individuals Xiao Yang and Wang Taili, better known as the Chopstick Brothers, came together and recorded this song to promote their latest film which was released in July. Later did they know, their hit song titled “Little Apple” <> became such a widespread phenomenon that caused everyone to film parodies of it. Even the Chinese military is using in in a recruitment video!
It was the first edition of Pedestrian Night on Orchard Road yesterday whereby a short stretch of the busy shopping belt of Singapore was closed from 6pm to 11pm with free activities for the public to participate and be entertained.
