Neon Lights Festival 2019 review: No Halsey, No Problem

All those joyless souls lamenting the cancellation of Halsey’s set must have eaten their words after the two-day Neon Lights Festival has come to an end. Despite invariably being plagued by wet weather and technical difficulties, the enthusiasm for a weekend of indie music and dancing appears to be at an all-time high. Neon Lights kicked up quite a bit of controversy a few days before the festival when it was announced that the second-day headliner, Halsey, would no longer be performing due to “unforeseen circumstances” without giving further details. Halsey was also scheduled to perform at Hong Kong’s Clockenflap…

NUANSA 2019 Lukisan Jati: Of artistic pursuits, validation, and The Boschbrand

You may have heard of the phrase “starving artist”, but what is the reality for artists who are pursuing their dreams? NUANSA’s annual musical production, Lukisan Jati (translated as ‘Portrait of Self’), explores the coming-of-age story of two painters on their journey to self-discovery. One of the two protagonists is none other than Raden Saleh, the 19-century painter who was given a scholarship to study art abroad – just like present-day Elsa, the other protagonist who earned an art scholarship in Singapore.

Down, dirty, and fun guaranteed at Splat Paint House in Singapore

Dressed in white coveralls and protective covers for my shoes, it felt like I was about to embark on an important mission.  At the nondescript, 630 square metres pop-up art studio at MOX @ Katong Point, patrons are promised a safe space to unleash their creativity and make a mess out of the space – in the name of art. This ingenious concept is introduced to its founder, Andrea Lim, who was inspired by a friend when she was studying in Portland, Oregon. “I was doing exactly the same thing in Portland, but in my friend’s spare room,” she said.…

DANAMIC’s Top 10 Kpop Bops of 2018

In the year of 2018, Korean producers and artists alike have proven one universal truth: that one does not need to understand the Korean language to enjoy K-pop. Pushing every musical boundary that ever existed, the music has easily won us over with its catchy tunes and addictive lyrics. With a wide range of genres such as hip-hop, synth-pop, R&B, and EDM, 2018 has seen both emerging Korean artists and veterans achieve commercial success through a mash-up of genres to create these upbeat bops that are hard to miss. To celebrate a year of ground-breaking musical accomplishments and reinvention like…

Crowds were streaming in even before the official opening of the Singapore Festival. With the wide-eyed curiosity of a child, Yangonites were seen crowding around photo opportunities and excitedly…

How to Choose the Right Window Blinds for Your Home

I have never thought much about window treatments for my home until I had to plan for my renovation a few months ago. In fact, window treatments are the most underrated part of home renovations, and I’m sure I’m not alone in this. What most of us do not know, is this: window treatments – such as blinds, curtains, and shades – are more than just dressing for your window. With the right consideration and planning, these treatments are functional and essential in privacy control, and filtering natural light (and sounds!) for your homes. Based on the style of your…

Concert Review: PVRIS Made Singaporeans Happy and Fortunate Souls

Playing for the very first time in Singapore and at an intimate setting at Hard Rock Cafe at Cuscaden, I didn’t think I was ready for a night full of surprises and pure blithe. Upon receiving my complimentary choice of Cola as I entered the concert venue, I was glad that arriving 30 minutes before the expected starting time did not obstruct my view of the stage. By the time PVRIS came on stage, the crowd was expectantly raring to go with screams of exhilaration; comprised of teenagers and young adults, it is hardly surprising of the demographics of PVRIS’…
