A MOVEABLE FEAST

The pandemic has hit the F&B sector hard. Yet, in the past two years, Singapore has also seen the birth of some of our most spectacular restaurants that drive across the point that we aren't just a global food city, but an excellent one.

And, of course, their interiors are stunning, making them destinations to see and be seen at, and compel one to get all dressed up - even if it's for a table of one. So now, who's ready to eat?

“Thanks, I rented it! Why fashion rental is hotter than Balenciaga

Backstage after one of the London fashion week shows, I complimented the editor of a glossy magazine on the trouser suit she was wearing. She thanked me, and added - raising her voice a notch, glancing around - "It's rented, actually.” Then she said that my dress was very pretty, too.
