They Started A Catering Review Site So You Won’t Waste Money On Bad Food, Served 5.8M People So Far

Technology
As of 2016, there are 450 food caterers in Singapore. And in the same year, those 450 caterers generated a very impressive S$915 million turnover. Screenshot from SingStat Impressive, because coming after it was the turnover from fast food outlets – not as surprising due to how they’ve become a staple for poor students, overtiming employees, or those who just love budget-friendly burgers and fried chicken. Of course, fast food typically costs less than catering, explaining the figures, but how often do you personally get to order catered food? Personally, the only time I truly got to know the costs of catering was when I dabbled in HR and events in my first job. For casual events where guests are assumed to not be too fussy, the cost per pax hovers between $10-$20; while grande...

A Year in Review (And a Needed Break)

A Year in Review (And a Needed Break)

Travel
As dawn broke on this year, I was excited for a fresh start. Last year, I dealt with panic attacks and anxiety from taking on too many projects, a breakup that left me heartbroken, and a mini-identity crisis from settling down. But that “greatest worst year of my life” set the stage for a year in which I shifted my priorities and focused on developing routines. On a personal level, this was a solid year. I cut my travels in half. I now love waking up, opening my fridge, and making breakfast. My panic attacks are gone. I read a lot more. I drink less and cook more. I joined a gym. I developed routines. And, while my insomnia is not gone, I’m starting to sleep a lot better. But no year is perfect. I replaced one addiction (traveling) with another (work). On the road, it was easy to fill a d

Arsenal Gentleman’s Weekly Review

Sports

Would I like to interview our new striker Peter O’Bannon, signed with such Arsenalistic drawn-out drama from Prussian Dortmund at his country estate ‘Little Tipperary’, just outside London Colney? You wager I would. So I called for my chauffeur Osborne to bring the 1933 Humber16-60 saloon round to the front of the house and we off we toddled. Mr. O’Bannon has owned the estate since 2010 following the sale of his father, Kneecaps O’Bannon’s scrap metal dealership, and he has spent a number of years and many hundreds of thousands of pounds recreating the Tipperary of his childho

Theatre Review: ‘Picnic’ at Stage Door Players

Breaking News
Shannon McCarren and Blake Burgess (Photos by Todd Fleeman) Stage Door Players is presenting William Inge’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama “Picnic,” running through Feb. 18, directed by Tess Malis Kincaid. There was a time, in the 1950’s, when Inge was almost as revered as Tennessee Williams and Arthur Miller. Ms. Kincaid writes in program notes of the “good old days” and the “wholesome, booming” 50’s. These were the Eisenhower years, you may recall, and life in the heartland (in “Picnic,” Kansas) was often thought of as idyllic. There was, of course, another side to this fantasy: This was also the time when people were building bomb shelters to protect themselves as the reality of the nuclear age set in; and the sexual revolution of the 1960’s was simmering, hiding i
