I had a whole row of seats to myself too. I watched A Million Ways to Die in the West by Seth MacFarlane, and found a million ways to die of boredom from that movie.

  • See What Show: Fury

    mrbrown
    21 Oct 2014 | 12:16 am
    Fury was a fierce WWII movie. Epic tank battles, killing Nazis, gritty underdogs what's not to like? The middle was a bit draggy though. The movie is no Inglourious Basterds, even both movies have Brad Pitt in it. Fury takes itself very seriously and sometimes, that drags the pace down. We get it. War is terrible. People die. Body parts have to be cleaned off the inside of tanks. When Fury gets to the fighting parts, it is clobbering time. And even it's even more entertaining when you know that the Americans are using peashooter M4A3E8 Sherman tanks against vastly superior German Tiger tanks.

    After that, we were then introduced to the Aquarist. The Aquarists are knowledge masters when it comes to marine animals and their food, and one of the highlights of our visit was to watch how the Aquarists feed the rays. Contrary to our expectations, they did not have to dive in to feed them. We were brought to a place which overlooked the enormous gallery in the middle of the S.E.A. Aquarium. To commence feeding, three Aquarists hit the surface of the water with a pail tied to a long pole, to attract the attention of the rays. Once the rays respond, they will load each pail with just the…

This list shows the number of complaints filed against retailers located in People’s Park Complex and Sim Lim Square in particular. This initiative was launched in 2013.

One particular shop in Sim Lim Square, Mobile Air Pte Ltd, has been featured in the news these past two weeks, but for the wrong reasons.

    Documenting your travels is not a new concept. It is a way to remember your travels and the memories you associate with the places that you visited. Most of us would take tons of photos. Some would keep a travel journal or a travel blog. Others would rather video the trip and even turn it into a mini movie. But surely that’s not all there is to it. What if you want to document your travels with a little bit more flair than just posing with a famous landmark in the background?

  • 3 Healthy Salad Recipes // And Why You Shouldn’t Eat Them

    militza
    29 Oct 2014 | 1:43 am
    If you like salad recipes, I have three great ones for you below! But first, I’d like to share a story about the reasons you shouldn’t eat them.  I’ve been learning about wellness for years now – and I’ve experienced both the good side and the bad side. When I first grew more conscious about what I ate, my food journey was one of self-empowerment and positivity. But over time, it somehow became more about fear and judgement.  It wasn’t immediately obvious to me, but there came a point where I felt that I was eating – what other people ate…
  • Happy, Healthy & Homemade Granola Recipe

    What’s your favorite part of cooking? We often say things like  – I love food, I love cooking – but it’s interesting to think about which part of the process really excites you… I think it’s important to understand the reasons why you do things.  Why bake your own granola when you can buy it? Why spend an afternoon making bread? Sure, we can say because it’s healthy – but I think that only scratches the surface. If you dig deeper,  you may find really interesting parts of yourself. Maybe you’re sensory and love the smells…
  • Silky Oat Bath Tea // Recipe + Giveaway

    Today I’m sharing the very recipe that kickstarted my journey into a life of creating more and consuming less. It’s funny that it’s such a simple recipe – but it carries a big story for me. In 2010, my youngest was born. At the time,  I was detoxifying my home after learning that a trusted brand of baby products I’d used on my firstborn was full of strange chemicals which, had I known, I could never imagine putting on her skin… I started looking to natural options – but I soon realised that it wasn’t going to be easy to make…

    At the recent Simplify Home Workshop, I taught my top 5 recipes to make homecare products, using everyday kitchen ingredients. They’re super effective recipes and a great way to simplify and detoxify the home! And when it comes buying homecare products – it’s so important to know what you’re bringing into your home. One brand that I feel good about is Ecover, and when I asked them to partner in this workshop – they were happy to join in! I taught students how to use Ecover’s dish soap – not only to clean the dishes, but also for multi-purpose…
  • A Breakfast Trick to Make The Best Eggs!

    You’ve got perfectly cooked eggs and beautiful crispy hash-browns, all in one pan. Key word: one-pan! Serve this up for a weekend breakfast – your family will think you’re some of kind of genius! I’ve been making single serving portions in my mini pans, but I have a sneaking suspicion that you could do a larger batch of hash-brown, and crack in a few eggs to make one big serving. PS – I’m considering trying this recipe with sweet potato… what do you think? Either way, it’s so easy – so delicious – give it a try!
