    Posted Sep 09th 2007, 12:00am by Sonia Kolesnikov

    ... Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop Some of the events at the Singapore Sun Festival (October 18-30) promise to broaden the horizons of epicureans.

On October 22, top restaurant Au Jardin by Les Amis will host an intimate evening with author Frances Mayes, talking over cocktails ...

    Posted Apr 06th 2004, 12:00am by Sonia Kolesnikov

    ... Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop, SINGAPORE Forget the baby debate that has been covering the pages of the local newspapers on an almost daily basis and threatening to turn you off procreating for the rest of your life (especially the articles about how much it costs to raise a child). The debate on who you should or should not be dating has made for much more entertaining reading, even ...

  3. The X factor

    Posted Apr 12th 2005, 12:00am by Sonia Kolesnikov

    ... Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop, Singapore Singapore is rightly proud of its achievements. It is the second most competitive country, globally, after the US; the second most globalised nation; has the best business environment in the Asia-Pacific region; is the least corrupt in Asia; second in personal safety among the world's top 50 cities- and the list goes on. (In fact, ...

  4. School quandary

    Posted Sep 20th 2005, 12:00am by Sonia Kolesnikov

    ... Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop, SINGAPORE The number of private schools in Singapore has mushroomed in recent years, cashing in on the government's aim to propel the city state as an education hub for the Asian region. Attracting a large number of mainland Chinese, the schools are teaching everything from English language to early childhood education, electronic engineering ...

  5. No naked lunch

    Posted Jun 22nd 2004, 12:00am by Sonia Kolesnikov

    ... Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop To breastfeed or not to breastfeed in public, that is the question. In relatively prudish Singapore, the issue is sparking renewed interest. It began when a breastfeeding mother was recently asked to leave the Esplanade Arts Centre by a security guard, because the other patrons might be put off by it. The Esplanade apologised, putting the incident down ...

  6. Well done

    Posted Apr 25th 2006, 12:00am by Sonia Kolesnikov

    ... Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop It's billed as the Oscar ceremony for Singaporean gastronomy: the World Gourmet Summit Awards of Excellence on Saturday had some of the surprises of the Hollywood original. It even had a few fashion faux pas. For a lunch event where many ladies were wearing elegant cocktail dresses, one winner stood out as she went on stage in a skin-tight, black ...

  7. It all adds up

    Posted Dec 21st 2004, 12:00am by Sonia Kolesnikov

    ... Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop, Singapore Most of the expatriates I meet in Singapore look at me with horror and incredulity when I tell them that I am planning to send my children to local schools. 'But aren't you worried about the strict education system?' they ask. 'Don't you worry they'll all come out of the same mould?'. Beyond the exorbitant ...

  8. Dissatisfied customers

    Posted Oct 11th 2005, 12:00am by Sonia Kolesnikov

    ... Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop Singapore is once again waging war against poor service, particularly in its retail stores. Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong led the call for better service in his National Day Rally speech in August, and since then Singaporeans have been inundated with newspaper articles about best and worst practices. The city-state's consumer-orientation ranking has ...

  9. Sex for all

    Posted Aug 23rd 2005, 12:00am by Sonia Kolesnikov

    ... Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop, Singapore Singaporeans have been getting hot in their bedrooms recently. No, there's nothing wrong with the nation's air conditioning; that's as frigid as ever. But it seems that couples have been persuaded to do their national duty- and the result is a 3 per cent increase in the number of babies born between May and July, compared ...

  10. Wolves at the door

    Posted Nov 09th 2004, 12:00am by Sonia Kolesnikov

    ... Sonia Kolesnikov-Jessop, Singapore It is all too easy to fall into a false sense of security when living in Singapore. With a low crime rate, locals and expats alike think nothing of leaving a bag unattended or hanging loosely on the back of their chair. Bag snatches are almost unheard of, house break-ins are few and far between, and in the first half of the year, police ...
