HmletLife, renting apartments with a personal touch

One of the things that drew me to journalism was hearing and sharing people's stories. I've managed to find a way back to doing that with Hmlet... the stories have been touching, hilarious, and barf-worthy adorable.

This latest series I'm working on together with photographer Adam Tun-Aung, is a photo series about the "Humans of Hmlet." I am producing the Hmlet videos as well while I interview our members about their personal tales.

One trend I've noticed is their appreciation for the personal touch.  There was a distinct appreciation for folks like Zenos Schmickrath (co-founder) and Debbie Ang (sales) who gave apartment renting and sales a personal touch with their genuine concern. Hmlet has led to real friendships between our units. Here's a candid shot we did at the end of one of our shoots tonight at The Sail, where three of our members wanted to say something to Zenos after meeting each other through Hmlet...

Live Cooking Demo by Victoria Cheng: #Knorrthentic Farmer's Pop-Up

So, I did a live cooking demo at VivoCity last Saturday! Knorr challenged us to create a Mod-Sin recipe (Mod-Sin: Modern Singaporean, local food with a twist)... I hadn't tested out my recipe yet, so I was a bit nervous going in! 
Thanks to everyone who dropped by Knorrthentic Farmer's Market Pop-Up and gave me the thumbs up for the final dish.

I presented a Hainanese Pork Chop Pot Pie. Recipe will be up soon. Super fun cooking our own recipes live with Chef Shen Tan, Sharon Lam (Delishar: One woman's kitchen adventure), Chun Rong (@XLBCR), Joey Lee, and Diana Gale.

Detox Retreats: W Singapore at Sentosa Cove

We went to preview a weekend detox retreat at W Sentosa Cove! Starting with welcome cocktails on a catamaran, we had a buffet dinner with Seafood from the Heart, followed by more cocktails at Woo Bar's TGIF³ party. We bunked in suites, and woke up bright in the AM for Strala Yoga (Tara Stiles was around too!) and massages by the poolside. The weekend ended with a healthy but generous breakfast at W's Extreme WOW Suite; their presidential suite.

Seafood from the HeartTGIF³ and the Strala Yoga session are W Sentosa staples. As for the welcome cocktail on the catamaran and breakfast at their Extreme WOW Suite, W Sentosa is able to create catered packages for those who are interested.
