Singapore is getting busier than ever. The number of things that you can see, eat, do and learn here seem to be growing, and growing and growing! Let no one ever say there’s nothing to do. Actually, some very hard working people work relentlessly (often behind the scenes) to make this such a buzzing city. And they are nice enough to send me a sneak peek every now & then. Ahem! Now, wouldn’t it be a waste to keep all these fabulous knowledge to myself? So, I am going to choose some these at random & share. Keep watching this space for more!

Finally, the Young must Learn! (while we relax)
Conference for JC Students & Graduates: Education consultancy Crimson Education and tuition centre School of Thought are joining forces to host the Real Life Conference to provide 15 to 19 year old students from Singapore with a different narrative: there’s more to life than chasing academic excellence.
The conference consists of talks and workshops that explore themes such as using their privilege as a force for good, dealing with failure and fostering innovation. The full day event on 19 January 2019 will bring together young leaders from all walks of life to help students discover their passions and determine their own higher education and possible career paths.
Held at the School of Thought Auditorium, registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis and priced at SGD 20 (half-day) and SGD 30 (full-day) for students at http://bit.ly/RealLifeConference.
