Future Music Festival
is on another level. Their Sydney edition played for over 40,000 music lovers before moving on to another four cities in Australia. Singapore is thanking their lucky stars to see the same collective coming them March 13 & 14th. No need to travel any further than Changi Exhibition Centre
this time we can plan to have sun, food, drinks, sick beats, and wicked sets designed to give you, the festival goer, a chance to party on another level. The vibe is ecstatic. Expect to scream and laugh while grooving to tunes you love with both mates and strangers in unison. We are all fans of the experience in the end of the day.

The famous “Heavenly Bed” has turned 15 and to celebrate we stayed for 2 days-1 night at The Westin in Asia Square Tower 2. Our guest experience allowed us to partake in the six pillars of well-being that includes “sleep well“, “eat well“, “move well“, “work well“, “play well“, “feel well“. Each well-being attribute has multiple qualities incorporated to allow guests to leave with an uplifted attitude. A process that begins on entry and inevitably crosses over from one facet to the other. For example, to sleep well, the secret is not just in the Heavenly Bed. The bed did feel like sleeping on clouds; however, leading up a personalised pillow was placed on our bed, a white tea scent candle to light, and a REM monitor to track your sleeping pattern. The bed is also ideally situated within the room so that the bathroom, entrance, and closet are separate from the bedroom giving us a homely feeling. Below are images from my stay on January 18, 2015. I had a wonderful stay and am looking forward to my next visit.
I took a sunset Strala Relax yoga class by the pool and bumped into some friends, so we shared a mat and took a few photos. During our Heavenly Body massage treatment I meditated on “gratitude” as this staycation helped me appreciate all the wonderful things in life.
For the last 10 New year holidays at least I have chosen to travel to hotter climates opting in for surf and sand to coats and snow. To ring in 2015; however, my parter Henry and I chose to stay in the UK and take a road trip to the extreme southwestern peninsula of England to the area of Cornwall. On a 35 degree day in Singapore I packed sensible winter coats, boots, heattech under shirts, leggings, long socks, wooly hats, you name it. Below is my list of favourite items for winter weather.
Must have amenities for winter weather:
1. Face Oil
Instead of buying a heavy cream to combat inevitably dry skin maintain you skin’s lipid barrier by applying a face oil after splashing or washing face with water. Oil will hold that extra water on the skin and help the skin to rebalance itself faster. I used La Prairie Cellular Swiss Ice Crystal Dry Oil for this trip, but I am also a huge fan of Neils Yard Remedy Face Balm.
2. Hair Oil
Your hair might not get immediately dry and split in just a few days, but a longer trip will leave your hair malnourished. Unless you want to dish out and find a salon to get a treatment opt in for a daily care and use an after shower hair serum that is not oily like Kao Essential Hair Serum. Or, if you want to be able to moisturise in the shower, a leave in treatment at the top of my list is Aveda Daily Hair Repair.
3. HeatTech Layer
For those of you who are not used to colder weather, Heattech will save your life. Uniqlo is affordable because, let’s face it, you have no idea where and when you will be using it again. An essential is the scoop neck 3/4 sleeve and long sleeve T-shirt. If your coat is not warm enough, buy a light down to to go underneath.
On top of all your packing you have somehow got to fit boots into your bag. Be sensible and bring a pair of black track sole boots that go with anything, are light weight, and have an inner faux wool lining. In Singapore it’s easiest to purchase from Charles and Keith extensive and reasonable winter boots selection. No heels! Your warm feet will thank you for it.
5. The Wellington Boot
Windy, rainy, and cold are not terms familiar to sunbathers. Affectionately known as Wellies these all terrain mud, sea, and sand boots will keep your feet comfy and dry during your all weather winter walks. The most famous brand the Hunter boot are trendy; however, weighing in at around 1kg per boot, they too heavy for trekking. I would recommend going to any mountain shop and getting a pair of simple black wellies. I found mine in Mountain Warehouse for only 15£ or around 30 SGD.
