With the digital world taking over modern society, the comfort of book browsing is becoming a lost past time. Here’s our pick of bookstore cafes in Sydney to cosy up and spend a few hours lost between rows and rows of paperbacks, and if you get hungry you’ll be able to grab a tasty bite too.
As a food lover’s heaven, Singapore is home to many global cuisines. If you’re new to Singapore, you may be overwhelmed by the number of restaurants, cafes and stalls selling you all kinds of snacks and meals. I’ve had local friends ask me for recommendations regarding Indian cuisine, and I’ve always been happy to give them my pick of places.
Indian cuisine is more than just dosas, pratas, samosas and curry. Indian cuisine can be broken down into several sub-groups depending on geographical location (North Indian, South Indian, Andhra, Mumbai, and so on), and you can find something that fits your needs depending on the occasion and how much you’re willing to spend.
When you were little, a part of every day was always dedicated to arts and crafts. Macramé, painting, Play Doh sculptures, bracelet making, and every other fun activity prep teachers can think of. We here at Posse think it’s supremely unfair that just because we’re “grown ups” with “jobs” and “responsibilities” we don’t get to play with feathers and a glue gun. Therefore, we’ve found the best places to get covered in glitter in New York. Don’t worry, you won’t need super glue and an Etsy account.
In Singapore, human activity continues far into the night: whether it’s a few friends out for a late night catchup, or people looking to wind down after a full day’s events, supper has become an indelible part of the Singaporean culture and lifestyle. Typically used to describe any meal or gathering after dinner, it usually falls anytime between the timeframe of 9 PM to even 2 AM. With a vibrant food culture being one of Singapore’s trademarks, and eating affectionately dubbed an unofficial national pastime, one would reckon we take this 4th meal of the day seriously – and rightly so.
The thing is, there are many places open for supper all across the island, and how is one to choose? Well, let this entry introduce some of the tastiest, heartiest places in Singapore which open till late, zeroing in on good ol’ local hawker fare and concentrating mostly along the northeast area of Singapore. Bonus – they are totally affordable too. Prepare to linger a little longer with your buddies.
Have you ever wished you could be in a billion places at once; spending the morning in a small country town, only to taste the delights of India by lunchtime and be draped in the mystery of the Buddhist spirituality all by 10 PM; travel the world without ever having to board a plane, or shell out cash for that suitcase that just won’t stop breaking? This is the dream, isn’t it? Well, Chester can offer you a slice of that dream, the experience of several countries, all in one charming little town.
Melbourne has an iconic coffee culture and for those of us who are aficionados out there, it’s not all just about the bean, but for the experience and sense of familiarity and comfort it brings to us in the morning, or any time of day for that matter. The smell, smoothness of the crema, silkiness and texture of the milk, are all things which Melbournians dedicate their time and passion to. There is a sense of pride and an art form connected to making a quality espresso, long black, cappuccino, latte, long and short macchiato etc.
