Former national sailor Thomas Leow wanted the photo shoot for his son's upcoming wedding to be memorable.

So two Sundays ago, the 60-year-old managing director took his son Norvin, a 28-year-old civil servant, and his future daughter-in-law to the Southern Islands on his yacht.

10 tips for a delicious steamboat meal


1. Double-dip half-eaten food into shared dipping sauces, unless you’re sure your dining companions are
cool with it.

Tired of hostels but too budget for hotels? Try “poshtels”!

After luxury, budget and short-term rental apartments, there’s another type of accommodation that’s squeezing its way into the hotel market: enter, the “poshtel”.

We love @mchlzb's OOTD


We think @mchlzb’s slouchy chic outfit will work perfect for a Monday at the office, no? Plus, we approve of how she sneaked culottes into the mix – a refreshing alternative to a pencil skirt.

We love @blackivory's OOTD

There's a good reason why a print dress is your next go-to wardrobe item, after that little black dress. It adds such spunk to your look, with little effort at all! @blackivory keeps hers interesting by adding metallic accents to her look; just look at how she matches her Bao Bao Issey Miyake bag with those sleek heels and belt. 

We love @nurulali's OOTD

We just love how @nurulali has put together a look that's so polished and chic. Props to her for wearing a floral top from Singapore fashion brand Raoul too (local pride!) and how she'd paired it so elegantly with a drop-peplum skirt and those sprightly chunky heels. It's office-appropriate and not the least bit boring either. 

We love @ymegz's OOTD

Statement accessories can so easily change your look of the day, as shown by @ymegz. We like how she pairs monochrome with shoes and accessories in such matchy and fun warm tones; extra style points to her for the cute cloche hat in mustard too!
