Xiao Long Bao – These were the three words that came to mind when we heard that authentic Shanghainese cuisine will be showcased at Resorts World Sentosa’s well-loved Global Gourmet Kitchen series. Award-winning chefs from the legendary Lü Bo Lang restaurant have been specially flown in to prepare authentic creations at Feng Shui Inn™.
For the uninitiated, eating the Xiao Long Bao is an art and requires a certain technique. To truly savour the essence of this Shanghai delicacy, it’s not as simple as putting the soup dumpling in your mouth, chewing and swallowing it.
It would have been a mundane Monday (with abysmally humid weather) but for the anticipation of the start of 11 days of gastronomic pleasures. 6:30 PM at the Maritime Experiential Museum saw the gathering of hosting chefs, guest chefs, and the who’s who of the hosting establishments for an exclusive pre-opening press conference. It was apt that the 16th World Gourmet Summit would kick start at the museum – the sails of the Bao Chuan in the background was a majestic symbol of 16 years of epicurean collaborations, culinary innovation and good taste.
Chocolate fans convene at Resorts World Sentosa this May. Internationally-known chocolate chef Bruno Le Derf, Meilleur Ouvrier de France Chocolatier Confiseur (The Best Craftsman of France Chocolatier) bestowed by the French President in 2007 and currently an Ambassador for Cacao Barry, will be unravelling the secrets of cocoa.
When the menu in a western restaurant begins with a pig’s ear dish, connoisseurs will immediately wonder if it has something to do with the British chef known for his philosophy of “nose to tail” eating. Take a seat at Osia from 24th to 27th April and you’ll experience the culinary pleasures brought to you by one-Michelin starred chef Fergus Henderson.
There’s nothing quite like a pool party, a hedonistic experience which one may not recall much come the morning after – especially when it involves lots of booze. What about free booze? That’s definitely the icing on the cake for the guests who attended last weekend’s Splash! Liquid Buffet at Hard Rock Pool. The RWS Invites event sampler provided a glimpse of what RWS Invites members can enjoy.
We braved unexpected splatters of water, ear-shattering party music and a very huge beach ball to dish some tips on how to have a splashing good time at a pool party.
What’s a pool party without getting yourself wet? Before going to a pool party, remember to pack your coolest beach gears because you’ll never know how things can get more competitive than a catwalk show. Besides, you want your board shorts or bikini to look their best in front of flashing cameras.
Some nutritionists say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We agree. And so did our guests at ‘Breakfast with the Stars’, an RWS Invites event sampler at Universal Studios Singapore®. While getting a taste of what RWS Invites members can enjoy, these guests had an awesome start to their Saturday. And it began with a great breakfast.

While surfing on Youtube, you come across random videos of aspiring musicians. And you click on the play button, thinking it’ll provide you with comic relief like the audition rounds of American Idol. But just that one or two odd times, you end up with your mouth slightly agape, marveling at the singer on the screen with that soothing soulful voice , and wonder why he or she’s not discovered by some major music producer yet.
