Minutes with Mindy – Insights with Professor Chen-Wishart

We met Professor Chen-Wishart at the lobby of the Eu Tong Sen building. There, she is seated comfortably on one of the lounge chairs, with her backpack and laptop seated on either side of her. We say hello, she says hello – and is very nice (even though we’re kinda late) – and we start the interview....

Our (?) Top 3 Char Kway Teows

When asked about our favourite Singaporean dishes, many rush to mind. Although many dishes could be in the running for our fav, we dare say that the humble, but ~amazing~  char kway teow (“CKT”) is the quintessential Singaporean classic. Here, we have reviewed three of what are arguably the best CKTs in Singapore!

Getting Cozy with the 38th Law Club – Part 2

It seems like Hollywood’s game plan is to simply keep churning out sequels, in some thinly veiled attempt to get us cinemagoers to spend more money on their movie franchises. Of course, that never works since, as we all know, watching it online is a far better alternative. *Justified does not encourage piracy, watch it...

Getting Cozy with the 38th Law Club – Part 1

The NUS Students’ Law Club (affectionately known as the “Law Club”) is a constituent club of NUS Students’ Union and is made up of the law undergraduate, graduate and masters students in NUS. Or at least that is what the page on Justified says. But that was back in 2011, where at least for most...
The Coconut Club Review

The Coconut Club Review

It’s a club, alright. For a start, getting through the doors hinges on specific time slots for entry. Not everyone gets a seat at the coveted indoor tables. Less so if all parties aren’t present. To top it all off, they don’t even take reservations, which probably explains the line which often snakes down to...

 Looking for a way to wind down during the upcoming recess week? Here’s a novel film for your consideration, perhaps to offset any studying-induced frustration! (hur hur)  That aside, Bong Joon-ho’s Okja (2017) was released on Netflix in July this year, with much critical acclaim. As an action-adventure film, it is truly remarkable and one-of-a-kind. Here’s a trailer from Netflix to whet your appetite:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjCebKn4iic  Without giving too much away, the plot...

BTC: Bites To Consider – Reedz Cafe

On the face of it, Reedz, with its classy glass exterior and the calm of a hipster cafe, does not seem like a place one would frequent for bites. However, a quick assessment of the place registered a small, quaint, cozy interior. One can also elect between the air-conditioned indoors segment or the breezy outdoor area...
iO Italian Osteria Review

iO Italian Osteria Review

iO Italian Osteria is more Italian than its name suggests. The rapid flow of Italian in the kitchen followed by the all-too-familiar pop of the cork, enhances the vibe and surrounding atmosphere of the restaurant. Paired against a minimalist interior of glass, stainless steel and whitewashed wood furnishing, there’s also a sense of style that...

BTC: Bites To Consider – eatwhat (Western) @ Summit

If you frequent the Summit, you’ve probably noticed the entrance of a new stall in the recent weeks! I have to admit that on first sight, I was extremely excited. With its self-explanatory name of “eat what is good for you”, it definitely gives off very healthy and wholesome vibes – and you’ll be happy...

BTC: Bites To Consider – Malay Stall @ Summit

When you think of soul food, you think of greasy juicy hamburgers with a side of fries topped off with some chocolate milkshake. But I guess the Malay stall is the closest you can get to soul food here in the Summit.
