Sponsoring a Child: What it really entails

When I first got to know about child sponsorship in 2012, the charitable cause was a really abstract idea to me. I didn't know of anyone who had sponsored a child and wondered if the money contributed would really go towards improving the life of my sponsored child. It was a great privilege to be able to work with World Vision Singapore earlier this year as part of Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information's study programme. We visited several parts of Lijiang, Yunnan in China to gather news and strategically communicate that information at an exhibition. Child sponsorship is something I hold dearly, and unlike a one-off donation, it takes great commitment.

An evening with SYNC Korean Tapas Bar: FIRST Korean Tapas Bar in town

What happens when an interior designer immerses himself in the F&B scene? A dynamic fusion concept bursts forth from his creative mind! Riding on the Korean wave, Brian and his wife set their eyes on the Serangoon Gardens neighbourhood — a quaint and cosy suburban enclave. The exclusivity of SYNC Korean Tapas Bar lies in the fact that it is the first and only Korean tapas concept in town! They have brought Consultant Chef Edwin Lau and Head Chef Calista Ong on board — both of them have extensive experience and interest in utopian cuisine. At SYNC's media tasting event, I had the opportunity to experience first-hand their unique gastronomy, and was duly impressed and charmed. Read till the end to find out about their ongoing promotion!

ZALORA Fashion Sale: Huge discounts await!

Are you looking for stylish clothes that don't burn a hole in your pocket? I was recently introduced to ZALORA Singapore's special price page that features items for sale at huge discounts. I have always been skeptical of massive discounts, believing quality and design to be compromised at such sales. With ZALORA's stringent quality control, however, I have NEVER been so wrong! I bought a CELIO T-shirt and was really impressed that the colours were highly accurate and as bright as those below. 
CELIO shirt from ZALORA— S$6.50
The T-shirt was not only comfortable but also extremely well-fitting! The ZALORA special price page has an almost infinite number of fashion apparel, bags, footwear and accessories. I scrolled through the pages for more than two hours without reaching the end! ZALORA strives to be as detailed as possible when describing the items, so you can REALLY expect to get what you see on the model and in the description.

I took 6 cab rides with Uber in 2 Days — and here's how you should use it

Did you miss the FREE cab ride promotion that was on yesterday? Some of my friends complained that they did not know how to use the mobile app and missed this awesome deal! Among all the ridesharing applications out there, I must say Uber is one of the most efficient and user-friendly! The 2 free taxi ride promotion (up to S$35.00 ea) was definitely a huge success as each cabby told me he received a constant stream of bookings throughout the day. Although this promo is over, readers who sign up with the promo code 'shermaineL' get S$10.00 OFF their first ride! Read on for more details!
