I have a problem. The first thing I reach for every morning and the last thing I let go of every night is my mobile phone. I feel like a piece of me is missing if I don’t check in on my Facebook, emails, and my favourite blog sites. So, when I was offered the chance to try out the new Lifestyle Retreat at ESPA at Resorts World Sentosa, I took on the challenge: drop everything – mobile phone, laptop, even internet access *gasp* – and go recharge my own battery.
When we talk about going green, the three Rs, carbon footprints, and even the Incredible Hulk spring to mind. When we talk about going blue, we could only think of incredibly dull Mondays. But it isn’t rocket science; it’s just about conserving the ocean.
Bluub, the newest addition to our Resorts World Sentosa family, went on a quest to find like-minded people to share why loving our oceans is important. He latched on to Biswajit (Bis) Guha and Eileen Toh from the Resort’s Education team, who tell us what going blue is all about and how we’re celebrating World Oceans Day at the S.E.A. Aquarium this June.

The third wave of the coffee movement came along and silently changed the way we drink our coffee. Gone are the days where we would settle for a coffee sachet or pre-refined coffee powder. A discerning palate was developed and it asks nothing less than a barista’s precision and skills to be put to the test. Baristas would now require an impeccable attention to detail, from ensuring the right coffee-to-water ratio to a well-rounded grind in order to brew the perfect cup of coffee.
We’ve amassed a few gift ideas for mum for Mother’s Day. But what about dad’s big day on June 16? They say that there’s no better way to a man’s heart than through his tummy, so one fool-proof way to make dad happy this Father’s Day is to stuff him with food glorious food. Here’s a sneak peek of what your family can chow on when you visit on Father’s Day weekend at Resorts World Sentosa.
Pasqualino Barbasso, 38, began his career working in his family’s pizzeria in a small town in Sicily, Italy, where he still works to this day when not travelling. Crowned world champion pizza acrobat in 2001 and 2002, the talented pizzaiolo now regularly travels the globe entertaining crowds with his theatrical, dough-spinning stunts and offering masterclasses in creating the very best Italian pizza.
Powerful strikes upon the drum. Thunderous roars battling the stubborn waves of the sea. Blood pumping adrenaline. These are just about the sights and sounds of Singapore’s Dragon Boat Festival, also known as the Dumpling Festival. And while most of us don’t have the physique and ability to steer these boats, we most certainly have the superhuman ability to stomach these Ba Zhang – many of them, if we can.
Feng Shui Inn has heeded the call of our tummies and created savoury, aromatic dumplings for this festive season, only from 28 May to 12 June.
We bite into three and give you a sneak preview.

There is one universal truth: no one escapes the clutches of the Weary Wednesday Monster. Midweek blues are painful for that stranded feeling – you’re tired from Monday and Tuesday, but the weekend is Thursday and Friday away. I decided that I needed a perk-me-up comfort meal, one that will keep my spirits uplifted for the rest of the week.
I popped by good ol’ Palio and gave myself a little treat.
It’s Wednesday, 5pm, and the week seemed to have stretched impossibly long. We reckon a good way to break the seemingly unending marathon of work commitments would be to indulge in a good ol’ Tuscan dinner. Better yet, if you eat at Palio on 29 May at the RWS Carrot Cause, your money doesn’t even go to the restaurant – EVERYTHING will be donated to the charity of your choosing.
Here’re 3 ways to make the night even more enjoyable.
