Middleton International School (MIS) is opening a third campus MIS West Coast in February 2022 to offer more families access to high-quality international education without breaking the bank.
Part of the EtonHouse International Education Group, Middleton started its first campus in Upper Bukit Timah in 2017 in response to the strong demand for affordable international schools among expatriate parents. In May 2018, it opened its second campus in Tampines to offer a through train pathway for families from early years to high school. Both campuses soon reached full capacity and currently have a waitlist at most levels. The Middleton brand has also expanded into Vietnam, Indonesia and China.
The third campus, Middleton West Coast, is conveniently located next to Haw Par Villa MRT station. Occupying three levels at 20 Harbour Drive, this new campus has a capacity of more than 500 students, catering to learners from Nursery 2 to Grade 5 (3 to 11 years). Fees are below $20,000 a year, excluding GST, which is far lesser than the S$2,500 average monthly fee at international schools in Singapore.
For thousands of years, we’ve questioned the meaning of life, death, and the afterlife. This year, Haw Par Villa aims to enlighten generations of Singaporeans on the meaning of death and the dying culture that surrounds it.
With the newly opened Hell’s Museum, Singapore’s longest-running cultural theme park has been transformed into a realm where death and the afterlife meet. The Museum’s experiential exhibition aims to educate visitors with engaging and comparative insights on how death and the afterlife are viewed and interpreted across different religions, cultures and the ages. Bringing together our blended identities as Asians, Hell’s Museum also provides a window to understanding how the various cultures, religions and philosophical concepts are interconnected and how much they have in common.

At Sushi Ichizuke, embark on a gastronomic voyage through time set in a space where tradition meets modernity as one journey through the intricate curing techniques, precise knife skills and the seemingly-simple artform of Edo-style sushi-making that Head Chef Ryoichi Nakatani refined over the last 20 years in a highly energized and musically-driven environment.
Originating in the 1880s of Edo (old Tokyo), this sushi style encompasses characteristics which remained true to its tradition and roots. Edo-style sushi involves a form of curing the fish while keeping its raw texture, or introducing a cooking element to ensure preservation of the fish before serving.

Timber Actually has a new store at The Grandstand which supplies wood – mostly from Singapore trees - to residents and wood enthusiasts in Singapore. Yes, you read that right!
Their customers are hobbyists, DIY-ers, wood workers, wood enthusiasts, homeowners, restaurants, cafes and many more. What all of them have in common is that they want to be part of the whole ecosystem: processing and using as much as they possibly can from local trees.
You will have noticed that there are loads of trees here in Singapore. What you probably do not realize is that along Singapore's roads are many trees (including African Mahogany) that are sourced to make premium furniture-grade wood. Local trees are often felled to make way for urban development as well as to keep us safe where they pose a risk to the community. Timber Actually is licenced to gather these fallen logs and bring them to their yard for processing.
Logs are first cut into regular plank sizes and then dried out within Timber Actually's in-house kiln in order to reduce the moisture content of the wood. Kiln drying is a standard practice in wood production mills and serves to efficiently bring the green lumber moisture levels down to "workable" levels. Excess moisture in the wood can cause major issues including warping and twisting.
Once the wood is dried, Timber Actually it can be customized into bespoke pieces for carpenters, DIY-ers, home-based woodworkers and homeowners.
The logs are put through several processes before they are ready to be transformed. The logs will be cut to regular plank sizes. After which, they will be subjected to drying inside Timber Actually's in-house kiln. This is to reduce the moisture content of the wood.

After five years of calling its cosy corner “meating spot” on Amoy Street home, Singapore’s foremost Argentinian steakhouse boCHINche by local lifestyle collective Spa Esprit Group has moved out of one Chinatown dining enclave to claim its stake in another - this time along the popular Club Street stretch. The new location boasts a larger dining hall decked out with a fresh look inspired by tribal design, an open kitchen and grill that flanks the entire length of the restaurant, and a refreshed menu designed by head chef Fabrice Mergalet to bring the age- old steakhouse experience to the modern age.
With a bigger location comes bolder ambitions as boCHINche continues to elevate the steakhouse experience in its new home. Ingredients, from trusted staples to regional specialties, are sourced seasonally from around the world to ensure the best products all year long. Modern cooking techniques such as sous vide, lacto fermentation, and infusions allow the kitchen to develop new dishes with unexpected ingredient and flavour combinations that draw inspiration from culinary traditions beyond Latin America, and across the world. Beyond its prized steaks, lighter, brighter flavours and more varied protein options have been introduced to widen its appeal. One thing remains unchanged since day one - steaks are cooked using traditional grilling techniques over charcoal fire to achieve a lightly charred crust and smoky aroma that best highlights the natural flavours of the beef.
Easily spot the restaurant on 27 Club Street with its textured facade cladded in panels of rustic recycled wood pieces. Step into the space and immediately notice the difference as tribal design-inspired interiors exude an undeniable masculine elegance, contrasted with quirky, fun elements throughout. A nod to soviet modernism design, clean, elegant lines of wood panelling, marble surfaces, and brass fittings are further accentuated with warm lighting in the 66-seater restaurant designed by the group’s creative director Jerry Sparks.
“boCHINche has been like that trusted old friend that never lets you down through the years. We’ve grown beyond just being that Argentinian restaurant or a traditional steakhouse - and have truly carved out a unique identity in Singapore’s dining scene that I believe will stand the test of time, and flourish even into even bigger and bolder possibilities from this point on,” shares Cynthia Chua, founder and Chairman of Spa Esprit Group.
Pre-meal nibbles come in inspired morsels packed full of flavours. Crispy Argentinian Spring Rolls (S$14) are filled with tender, richly flavoured chopped pig ears, cut with an aromatic mix of jalapeño, piquillo, scallion, and coriander. A trio of hand-cut beef, chicken and sweet corn Empanadas (S$5 each) continue to be boCHINche’s signature crowd-pleasers, with the addition of a new flavour that elevates the quintessential ham and cheese pairing with rich provolone cheese, smoked ham, sweet confit onions and pimento.
While meats are the main event at boCHINche, a new selection of standout starters offer bright respite for those seeking a lighter touch for their meals. A plump, milky ball of artisanal Italian Burrata (S$29) is paired with a medley of fermented tomatoes that cut through each creamy spoonful with refreshing fizzy pops on the palate, dotted with avocado mousse and edible orange cosmos. Quail (S$28) offers more than just a beautifully charcoal grilled bird with earthy flavours of salt-crusted roasted beetroot, crunchy roasted hazelnuts and tangy berries brought together with a rich buttermilk sauce. A classic Spanish risotto-style Bomba Arroz Verde (S$27) is topped with grilled Argentinian prawns, while raw scallop bites are folded throughout the rice and glazed with a stock made using seafood trimmings, resulting in a satisfying, creamy consistency while still remaining blissfully dairy-free.
From the famous wood and charcoal grill, a combination of cherry, apple and jarrah wood lends an irresistible flavour to a proud selection of carefully selected, grass-fed beef imported directly from Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, USA and Japan. While Argentinian beef remains the heart and soul of boCHINche, a renewed emphasis has been placed on the brand being an authority on high quality cuts of beef from around the world. A dry-aging fridge allows beef to be dry- aged in-house—typically for 35 to 38 days—using traditional methods, with an added coating of beef tallow that helps enhance the aging process while introducing new dimensions of flavours.
A thoughtful, 50-odd-strong-label wine list completes the steakhouse experience, with 10 labels available by glass and carafe. Designed around the philosophy of pairing wines and cuisine of the same origin, the list features 30 Argentinian labels—mainly from the key region of Mendoza—ranging from the quaffable to the bold and robust. The list is split between a selection of natural wines sourced from Drunken Farmer, while the rest remain conventional for their big, robust flavours that are best enjoyed with aged meats cooked over charcoal fire.

With record numbers of first-time bullion buyers, family offices, hedge funds and HNWIs increasing their diversification into this asset class, IPM Group and Auctus Metal Portfolios are positioned to assist individuals, corporate and institutional investors to embrace the critical significance of maintaining a diversified investment portfolio, including an exposure to physical precious metals.
Established in 2014, Indigo Precious Metals Group is a trusted precious metals investment specialist, founded and run by leading metals expert, former investment banker and acclaimed financial analyst David J Mitchell, serving a wide international client base from offices in Singapore, Malaysia and the UK.
Founding Partner, David Mitchell shared, "Every asset class has its day in the sun. The global macroeconomic landscape is pointing towards a substantial revaluation of precious metals, driven by a myriad of dynamic factors.
“Exposure to traditional asset classes at this time, including stocks and property is becoming increasingly risky, as a growing acceptance of their extreme overvaluation becomes widespread. Current valuations are simply unsustainable in the longer term. There is a clear and ongoing shift occurring, with increasing global wealth capital flows moving into more defensive and undervalued asset classes. Investors are now demanding the inclusion of physical precious metals within their diversified portfolios.
“We are in the early days of a clearly-defined super-cycle in commodities. Precious metals represent the pointy end of the spear in terms of leading the way forwards in commodity asset appreciation. Expanding our headcount and securing a sizable ground floor retail space in the heart of Singapore's CBD will ensure that we are well equipped to meet this growing demand,” he added.
The new IPM Group retail bullion store features safe, discreet, and easy access to several dynamic bullion showcases and displays as well as well-appointed, private meeting rooms for prospective clients who seek bullion investment advice from their team of bullion experts and advisors. Monitors featuring live spot metal prices adorn the walls and provide investors with real time bullion market information including performance charts, forecasts, and research reports.
As a leading bullion dealer in Singapore since 2014, IPM Group has developed a loyal client base in trading precious metals and a reputation for consistently offering highly competitive premiums across the market. IPM Group offers an extensive selection of internationally recognised brands of investment grade bullion including Gold, Silver, Platinum, Palladium and Rhodium.

The newly revamped Changi Chapel & Museum (CCM) features new content and artefacts presented in an intimate and engaging format to tell the story of the prisoners of war and civilians interned in Changi prison camp during the Japanese Occupation. As part of the revamp, the National Museum of Singapore which manages CCM has been collecting stories and personal objects from families of former internees that emphasise their personal experiences. The museum’s narrative is centred on remembrance and reflection, encouraging visitors to contemplate both the hardships that the internees underwent, as well as their courage and resilience in the face of difficulties.
This chapel is modelled after St George’s Church, one of the numerous churches built by the prisoners of war (POWs) in Changi during their internment. It was started by Reverend Eric Cordingly, who presided over it for the rest of the war. The furnishings for the church were painstakingly handcrafted or scavenged by the POWs.
As the POWs were moved across Singapore and Thailand, St George’s Church moved with them. A second version of the church was built at Kanchanaburi when POWs were sent to work on the Thai-Burma Railway, and two more versions were rebuilt at Changi Gaol by the returning POWs. In all of its iterations, the church continued to provide hope and comfort to the men who attended its services.

For its introduction to Singapore, the opening menu is set to feature a selection of bakes which include all manner of donuts, croissants and the cruffins that put them on the global map. In their commitment to staying true to the brand’s DNA and experience from end to end, pastry chefs from the original flagship are specifically flown in from the USA to guide their local counterparts in everything across pastry crafting techniques, recipe development and operation protocols. All handcrafted with a reference to traditional baking techniques, the hallmark of what makes Mr Holmes Bakehouse stand out is their modern playfulness and embracing stance toward creativity.

It comprises three display houses – The Sembcorp Cool House, Tan Hoon Siang Mist House, Yuen Peng McNeice Bromeliad Collection, as well as the surrounding outdoor display areas that showcase lowland forest and stream habitats, and a Secret Ravine that emulates habitats that can be found in deep, narrow valleys of tropical mountains. The Sembcorp Cool House in particular, features the largest collection of high elevation montane orchids in Asia.

The display will also showcase various art forms, from original watercolours and ink drawings to prints and printing blocks.

His report led to the demarcation of the first forest reserves in Singapore in 1884, in order to prevent the ecology and climate from further deteriorating.
Complementing the Forest Discovery Centre is the OCBC Arboretum, which is a first-of-its-kind high-tech arboretum in Southeast Asia. Opened in October 2019, the arboretum plays an important role in the Gardens’ conservation work, housing and displaying the Gardens’ growing collection of rare dipterocarps.

Yoga Movement pushes boundaries with its new design-centric flagship studio on Handy Road. Sitting at the intersection of culture, fitness, food and music, there’s no such thing as resting on your laurels for this almost-decade young company.
The studio channels YM’s signature good vibes, warmth of service and sense of community that loyal members know and love, all across a massive 6,000 sqft space. The new flagship studio ups the ante with stunning, spacious interiors featuring 7-metre-high ceilings, finishings of warm wood and splashes of terrazzo. Fans and neighbours will love YM’s new coffee bar and the chillout patio overlooking the bustle of Orchard Road for post-yoga hangs.
The studio offers the seven signature YM class types as well as Pop Up classes, YM’s version of themed classes. All of these classes are multi-levelled, catering to Newbies and seasoned practitioners alike. Those just starting out can join Basics to get acquainted with foundational yoga postures, while those wanting to work up a sweat can opt for the more dynamic Power Flow or one of the Hot classes. With over 80 classes weekly, the Orchard Flagship studio expects to see over 1,600 people flowing in their practice rooms and grabbing a cuppa at the Yoga Movement coffee bar week in, week out.
Intentional design is the starting point of all YM studios. The Orchard Flagship Studio is the ultimate reflection of how the brand has grown, as well as the space it holds in the lives of over 100,000 YM members. Created almost as an antithesis to the tranquility of the traditional yoga studio, the YM space exudes a sense of vibrance, comfort and warm intimacy. Think of it like your best friend’s tastefully designed apartment — drop in at any time, enjoy the stunning décor, and be welcomed with open arms.
YM members (affectionately known as YM FAM) can enjoy their classes in one of the studio’s three airy practice rooms — two with Hip Hop-inspired names as an ode to the brand’s identity that’s rooted in culture and music; and one that’s solely dedicated to the brand’s Teacher Training arm, YMTT200. Members can expect striking features such ascustom-designed wallpaper from local brand, Layer Play, as well as floor to ceiling windows. A long hallway adorned with a luscious tropical print takes members to the spacious changing room facilities, which include huge bathrooms you can run laps in, and a total of 11 luxurious showers for women and men. Other aesthetic details include Yoga Movement’s dreamy terrazzo walls and rustic terracotta brick tiles.
Following the success of the Grounded by Common Man Coffee Roasters concept at Yoga Movement’s Robertson Quay location, the brand is getting their own foot in the local coffee scene. Yoga Movement’s first-ever coffee bar created by the YM FAM, for the YM FAM makes up an integral part of the new studio. They are supported by long-time partner Common Man Coffee Roasters, continuing Yoga Movement’s ongoing collaboration with local culinary heroes to provide quality brews and fuel for the day — best enjoyed on their breezy patio overlooking the bustle of Orchard Road.
Alicia Pan is the co-founder of Yoga Movement, a yoga teacher with over 500 hours of training under her belt, and a former singer-songwriter. When YM opened its doors in 2012, Alicia had small aspirations: to deliver yoga to the people in a small-scale boutique studio. The demand quickly exceeded their first studio’s capacity and Yoga Movement swiftly grew into an iconic fitness-lifestyle brand with over 100,000 yoga enthusiasts clocking a whopping 25,000 visits a month, and six studio concepts under their belt to date — including their brand new Orchard Flagship Studio.

When the RTS Link opens for service at the end of 2026, it will be a game changer that will significantly improve connectivity between Singapore and Johor Bahru and ease congestion along the Causeway.
The RTS Link Woodlands North Station will be constructed underground at a maximum depth of 28 metres. There will be three stories, with two basement levels and an underground linkway to the CIQ building. The RTS Link Woodlands North Station and CIQ building are approximately 10 times the size of a typical MRT station. These facilities will be adjacent to Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) Woodlands North MRT station and be seamlessly connected via an underground concourse. The tunnels will be connected to the viaduct that crosses the Straits of Johor at a height of 25 metres.

In commitment to its new direction of using scents to heal, soothe and delight one’s mental wellness, homegrown fragrance brand, SIX, has launched a multi-sensorial boutique at 313@Somerset. Designed by local artists Clara Yee and Gerald Leow from In The Wild, the boutique is a representation of Founder, Jason Lee’s vision of creating a sanctuary for customers to take a break from their busy lives.
Covering a space of 550 square feet, the boutique is designed to enhance the customer’s journey through visual, audio and olfactory stimuli. The allure starts from the exterior façade of the boutique enhanced with SIX’s signature ambient scent to pique the interest of passers-by. As they step into the space, elements of the interiors emanate a gentle calming vibe, complemented with a curation of spa- esque music to lull them into a state of bliss. “We invite our guests to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy mall into our sanctuary; to take a breather, unwind and just be – in the moment,” says Jason.
Likening the interiors to that of a cave, Clara Yee, lead designer and Co-Founder of In The Wild, explains the design inspiration: “The space references the contours of a cave through a variety of textures and an earthy calming palette of natural materials. The ideas of wellness and care are displayed with the stucco walls of sandstone pink, pistachio greens and soft, rounded edges. The new SIX boutique is designed to be an intimate respite to soothe the senses.”
Zoned into areas of ‘consciousness’ and ‘memories’, the space is a hybrid of retail and homelike hosting experience, with art objects to discover throughout. Like a personal collection, each item within the space, from the textiles to the floating forms are like responses to memories and reflection. “To achieve harmony and bring positivity into our lives, we sometimes need to tap into our deeper senses. The artworks loosely reference Plato’s Allegory of the Cave, inviting us to be free from relying on just our five senses,” Clara expounds. The accomplished young designer and entrepreneur made waves when she was recognised by Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2016. Clara was also the artistic designer behind Singapore Tourism Board’s Singapore: Inside Out, an international multi-disciplinary showcase of Singaporean talents in the fields of design, music, literature, food and performing arts.
Since its inception in July 2016, SIX has been making strides within the scenting industry with an expanding collection of fine fragrances, DIY scent kits, and a home scenting range. From a humble collection of three scents (123 Tribeca, 1724 Puka and 27 ̊F Biei), SIX now boasts two product lines. They include the SIX home scenting collection of diffusers, nebulizers and pure essential oils, two additional scents (Eclat and 2065 UJONG), as well as a DIY scent kit.
On the commercial end, SIX has been undertaking ambient scenting, creating bespoke labels and conducting scenting workshops for luxury brand names such as Piaget, Lexus and Ritz Carlton. In 2019, SIX established its first standalone boutique at the newly revamped Funan Mall and was commissioned for its ambient scenting. The same year, the SIX product line was included in Singapore Airline’s Kris Shop catalogue. SIX was also commissioned by our national carrier to create a bespoke scent that was used on perfume tags boxed inside purchases. Later that year, SIX collaborated with Eu Yan Sang to create the world’s first Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perfume, using traditional herbs.
In 2020, SIX launched its second standalone boutique at Bugis Junction. In view of the work-from-home phenomenon following the Covid-19 outbreak, SIX created the uplifting, Awakening home diffusers, where ten percent of sales proceeds were donated to the Courage Fund by Community Chest. SIX also launched a new line of essential oils and disinfectant sprays. In November 2020, SIX partnered with the Singapore Association for Mental Health (SAMH) to raise awareness on mental health issues, with the creation of the Hikaru collection. Ten dollars from each product sold, with a total targeted amount of S$10,000, will be donated to the association in support of its ongoing efforts to help individuals with mental health issues.

Masaaki's exquisite food creations are made using the finest of ingredients from all over Japan to produce flavours that are natural yet distinct, reflecting the ethos of Japanese culinary principles. Yet with each course, you can experience a fundamental respect of distinctiveness with each act of slicing to plating.
Chef owner, Masaaki Sakashita’s appreciation for fish started at an early age, growing up by the Kamo River in Kyoto, Japan. From his early years fishing, his mother even lamented that he would one day become a sushi chef, for he loved fish. Being the pickiest amongst 3 siblings, Masaaki will even refuse dinner if the food did not taste good, hence started his early relationship with food as a way of life. Masaaki was eager to learn the intricacies of fine Japanese cooking, and formally entered the industry at 18 years old; often arriving hours ahead of his peers such that he could finish his tasks and try his hand at other works.
Masaaki infuses traditional cooking techniques with Chef Masaaki's personal ingenuity to deliver omakase menus with a difference.
The modern contemporary decor with its pink dancing Gucci cranes and the use of room dividers to mimic undulating mountains to a cascading wave of washi sheets suspended high on the ceiling to embody the beauty of Japanese clouds transforms to its intentionally simple decor in the main sushi dining counter.
The sushi counter is made from a 250 year old Hinoki wood, sanded to a soft porous state to provide both a luminous visual from its natural glow the moment one enters the counter dining area and a sweet lemony smell emanating from within.

Offering a completely different experience from its Esplanade branch, the new Barossa Bar & Grill at VivoCity shines the spotlight on dry-aged Australian beef and Josper oven-grilled lamb, poultry and seafood dishes. The Australian-inspired restaurant serves only the highest quality and carefully sourced meats from Australian farms.
Barossa specially curates its selection of Australian beef from four renowned brands. The Bass Strait range showcases 100% grass-fed beef — the cattle are raised on natural rye grasses and clover. Wanderer’s free-range beef offerings come from cattle that roam freely in paddocks and feed on barley. Josdale is an Australian pioneer of 100% grass-fed black angus; its cattle roam the verdant pastures of Gippsland in Victoria and are antibiotic- and hormones-free. Finally, Carrara’s array of multi-award winning wagyu is known for its superb texture and intense flavour, which are derived from first-class genetics and grain-fed for a minimum of 350-400 days. Their cattle is traced from birth to ensure biosecurity and meat safety while providing the best animal welfare.
In addition, the restaurant boasts its own dry-ageing fridge, the Dry Ager®. The bigger cuts such as porterhouse and tomahawk are aged for 50 days while the smaller cuts such as tenderloin and striploin are aged around 25 days. The natural enzymes in the meat break down some of the collagen, resulting in a tenderer texture. During the dry-ageing process, the beef also loses a percentage of its total weight due to water evaporation, which causes the flavour to become more concentrated and intense.
The restaurant overlooks the tranquil water leading to Sentosa Island, making it an ideal address for sedate sessions replete with tête-à-têtes. Perfect for casual gatherings, its special al-fresco menu features tapas from just S$6, cheese platters (from S$28) and pizzas (from S$24). Kick back and relax with offerings such as Japan Sakoshi Bay Oyster ½ Dozen, Chipotle Buffalo Wings, Truffle Fries and Char-grilled Prawns with Spicy Citrus Dressing.
Barossa carries about 10 wine labels from Australia as well as a wide selection of white and red wines from Italy, New Zealand, France and South Africa. Classic cocktails such as mojito, pina colada, amaretto sunrise and tequila sunrise are available here as well.
