Republik aims for cool, casual vibe...and no fish

Just as we'd fully recovered from bidding farewell to the sharks and decadence at the M1NT club in Hollywood Road, we were invited to check out its new incarnation.

This week wee test: powder blush

Blush can be used to change your look. Appear slimmer by applying it from the apples of the cheeks diagonally to the outer corner of the eyes. For a cutesy look, apply circles to the cheeks. Pink shades work well with fair skin, while orangy tones suit darker skin.

New lease on life

JUST BECAUSE YOU rent doesn't mean you have to put up with a tacky 'you can tell I don't own this' interior. How far you decide to go in renovating will probably depend on how long you intend to stay.

The stranger in the mirror

Chapter 1

Curb these peeping Toms

A NUMBER of people have written to these columns, complaining about the malpractices of taxi drivers. The one that concerns me the most is the use of mirrors by some cabbies.

The normal rear-view mirror is installed in the middle at the front of the car, so the driver can see the traffic out of his rear window.
