We find plenty to celebrate about Singapore in our pages each month, but to wish our Little Red Dot another happy birthday this month (we’re one year away from the big 5-0!), we’ve decided to find out what you love about this place – turn to page 14 for a selection of people we quizzed on the streets about their favourite SG things.
We’ll also continue the conversation online throughout this month – follow us on Facebook or Twitter, look out for our #welovesg hashtag, and feel free to add in what you love about Singapore as well. For starters, we’ve got a number of local things to love in this issue alone, from some amazing SG-inspired artwork at several galleries around town (in particular, don’t miss the shows at Artistry, Chan Hampe and Opera galleries; see pages 12 and 60) to an interview with mod Sin pioneer chef Willin Low, who just relaunched his flagship restaurant Wild Rocket. We’ve also rounded up a selection of cool new stuff from our favourite local designers and rated some of the most notable National Day songs of years past – not to mention our top reasons to save Zouk.
Among other things to celebrate, we’re also proud to announce that the Time Out brand has picked up another award for International Consumer Brand of the Year (the fourth time in five years) at the PPA Awards in London (the Oscars of the magazine world). As always, thanks for supporting the Time Out brand around the world – we couldn’t have done it without you!
