Life

A little bit of food, a little bit of literature, a little bit of everyday fashion, a little bit of shopping, a little bit of love; it all comes together to form a rather sizeable… lump. It’s difficult to fully define what this vertical covers, but it encompasses everything that makes life enjoyable – anything that shines a light on your day belongs right here in Life.

Spartan Downtown Challenge 2018: The Finish Line is Yours For The Taking

The name “Spartan” alone carries a legacy commonly associated with fearsome, disciplined warriors, soon becoming synonymous with endurance, strength, and the pursuit of physical greatness.

To this day, the Spartan name is still being used with near superhuman feats, and this time, it has arrived in town for brave local Spartans to conquer.

Street Superior Festival 2018: Everything You Need to Live Your Hypebeast Life

Ever been to a derelict power station on a hot and humid day to look at some sneakers? Yes, those sneakers that “cosmopolitan” Singapore youth dream about on a silver platter? Neither have I. Take my hand as I retell my meandering experience into a world of subcultures at Street Superior 2018. Despite the far-flung locale, I have to admit that the elaborate space-making lent itself well to a feeling almost akin to walking into the wrong classroom or jumping down into the rabbit hole. Think grungy London back alleys and joggers in Nike windbreakers – you know you like that…

The Mystery of Shirkers

To call Shirkers a mystery would be an understatement. The documentary, now out on Netflix, explores the story behind Sandi Tan’s 1992 would-be film of the same name. Together with her best friends and teacher from film class, they embarked on a two-month long adventure to make Singapore’s first surrealist indie road movie about a serial killer. Just when shooting was over, however, their teacher, Georges Cardona, vanished with the footage. He left no reason for his disappearance and no trace of the film the friends had poured so much into. The film answers the questions raised by the disappearance…

“Ruin Me” is A Slasher Film That Is Mediocre at Best

At first glance, Ruin Me looks set to be a decent horror flick with the interesting premise of a girl being brought into a camping trip that doubles as a haunted house, and has to make it out alive when things go awry. And of course, what could go wrong eventually went wrong. This is the debut feature film for director Preston DeFrancis and honestly, it isn’t perfect. But that’s fine, and there are certainly positive points about the film. For now, however, let’s not sugarcoat things. The film stars Marcienne Dywer in the leading role as Alex, a non-horror…
