The brand was born of a simple need, the solution to a frustrating problem: build a case that can withstand the rigors of rough travel. Today, that aluminum case, created nearly 70 years ago is the prototype for style, sophistication and uniqueness.
The company manufactures hard-wearing travel cases and briefcases, mainly of aluminium. It was originally a metal fabrication company called Zierold Company, which in 1946 changed its name to Zero Corporation.
Erle P. Halliburton, the founder of Halliburton, had commissioned the aluminium case in 1938 from aircraft engineers because other luggage could not endure the rough travel through Texas oil fields in a pickup truck. In addition to being more durable than a leather or cloth case due to its rigidity, the aluminium case seals tightly against dust and water.
The aluminium cases have appeared in over 200 Hollywood movies and television shows, often as a MacGuffin, and in professional wrestling, most notably used by Steve McMichael and Irwin R. Schyster.
In addition to aluminium, Zero Halliburton cases are available in polycarbonate and texalium.

Ito-Kacho, a new-corner to Singapore's gastronomic scene, might very well show us how it is done when it comes to serving high quality beef.
A subsidiary of a large Japanese corporation known as Sumikin Bussan, Ito-Kacho was first established in 2009 in Japan with the sole intention of providing you an opportunity to taste top grade barbecued beef at a more affordable cost. They import their stock of Wagyu cattle solely from an island called Kyushu.
As one of the first Yakiniku (barbecue) restaurants in Japan to use chilled instead of frozen meat, Ito-Kacho gives your taste buds an entirely new experience when it comes to beef. Due to the temperature at which the beef is stored at, its marbling is retained and thereby gives a better overall consistency.
Their extensive menu includes premium cuts such as Wagyu-Sasami (Flank Steak) and Toku-Jo-Bara (Short Rib) which are guaranteed to melt in your mouth, whilst the unusual offering of Wagyu tongue (Cow's tongue) is available if you are curious enough to venture into a more unfamiliar territory.
The interior design of the restaurant is a sleek, classy combination of black and brown wood. This coupled with warm and inviting lighting, provides you with a cosy feeling. If you are worried about the accompanying smell of smoke and barbecue, rest assured, the convection system built into the barbecue pit sucks out any air that rises above the cooking food.

This quintessential Parisian pâtisserie and salon du thé has its flagship store at 30 Penhas Road, Lavender, a second outlet at Mandarin Gallery and a third outlet at The Scarlet Hotel which is situated very close yet nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The patisserie is paying homage to Marie Antoinette, the last queen of France who was so often revered for her fine taste and her lavishly indulgent love for an excess of meticulously crafted pastries. Antoinette sets the benchmark for the pastry and dessert scene in Singapore, but with her takes of French classic desserts.
Antoinette’s repertoire of French classics will tempt everyone. The Religiuese of Caramel is a visually stunning tower of choux puffs filled with the most luscious caramel cream accentuated by touch of fleur de sel, crowned with caramel glaze and delicate butter cream trimmings. The Savarin, a grand classic in the French pastry context, consist of a baba pastry delicately infused citrus rum syrup and finished with a rosette of vanilla crème Chantilly. Finally the melt-in-the-mouth milk chocolate mousse perfumed with the aromas of earl grey tea encases a chocolate biscuit, raspberry coulis and an earl grey tea crumble. At the viennoiserie shelf you’ll find a selection of the most buttery and flaky pastries you can get warmed up. A special mention has to be for the kouglof; a yeasted bread-like cake with the aromas of orange blossom water specked with nuggets of moist raisins and toasted almond flakes. This is a traditional Alsatian specialty that is lovingly baked in a glazed earthenware mould giving it its distinctive shape of a crown, a favourite of Maire Antoinette.
On the menu one will find classic French offerings such as Boeuf Bourguignon, a slow braised wagyu brisket in red wine served with garlic mash and seasonal vegetables and a traditional country pate,pan fried and served with cornichon, petit salad, two mustards and warm baguette. Or how about some authentic French crepes served with a wide range of generous fillings both savoury and sweet.
You will be sure to find yourself lured into a welcoming lounge fit for royalty with refined plush upholstery, panelled walls, antique lighting and a cosy fireplace. Definitely a treat well deserved.
