This week in Singapore, it’s hard to compete with the excitement and national pride that’s come with Joseph Schooling’s victory at the Olympics. Nevertheless, there’s lots to look forward to as we hail a new incoming restaurant, savour some interesting wines and test-drive something other than a car. Check out what’s been hot on the site this week all here.

Dining

We all love a good piece of fried chicken, and now we can expect another famous brand to hit our shores, albeit not until next year. In town for the recent Epicurean Market at Marina Bay Sands, the guys behind Yardbird Southern Table and Bar told us what to expect when they open next year. Basically, lots of fried – waffles, chicken and everything else. We’re hungry already.

Finger lickin’ good (better, in fact).

Drinks

Wines can have a personality of their own, and this was something we found out more about thanks to Penfolds Winemaking Ambassador Patrick Dowling who had a few interesting stories to share about these five wines in the Penfolds compendium.

There’s more than grapes behind these wines.

Beauty

We love a good lipstick…but can they last throughout the day? We tested out Chanel’s new Lip Ink for a day, putting it through its paces through a few meals, drinks and work. See what went down over the course of this colourful experiment.

Steak and lipstick? Sure.

Travel

We love a hotel that knows how to treat you good but these five hotels offering up ultra-luxe experiences really take the cake. All part of the Preferred Hotels and Resorts Legend Collection, these five hotels located around the world from Mexico to Thailand are pretty impressive when it comes to offering up a new way to live it luxe.
