15 Local Instagram Accounts You Should Be Following

20 May 2016 by Teenage

Building up your social media platforms isn’t as simple nowadays thanks to how saturated the ‘social media influencer’ market is – it kinda seems like everyone’s (trying to be) an influencer. But to us at Teenage, there is actually a difference between a true blue social media influencer and someone who simply posts content online. This person has to be truly influential – you’d want to use the products they’ve used, eat the food they recommended, travel to destinations they’ve been to, and even buy their entire outfit. Here are 15 Singaporean influencers that embody just that, and more. 

#1 The Food Photographer

Trust us, taking a good food photo takes great effort and skill. If you want to venture into food photography and need inspiration on styling your food shots, check out our Teenage Gorgeous You (TGY) 2015 winner, Goh Liang Yu’s Instagram feed! From ice-cream to waffles to even laksa, his gorgeously styled photos are sure to give you tons of creative ideas. Warning: do not visit his feed on an empty stomach. 

#2 The #Foodporn Creator 

The go-to feed for yummy self-made bentos and confectionaries, Shirley aka Little Miss Bento has captured tummies worldwide with her adorable creations. Even cooking noobs like us were tempted into trying our hand at making one of her bentos! Needless to say, we failed miserably. 

#2 Fashion-Everything

A style chameleon who’s unafraid of experimenting with eclectic prints, textures, and bright colourswe dare say that Yoyo Cao is one of Singapore’s most fashionable ladies. And her Instafeed is just proof of that.

A familiar face on many of our favourite local webstores, Francesca Tan has a way of making us want to purchase all of her outfits. If Yoyo’s outfits are too high-level for you, we think Francesca’s comfy yet stylish outfits are your best bet. 

#3 Beauty Addict

Guan Min’s Instagram feed is basically food for the #BeautyAddict’s soul. She features a plethora of the latest must-purchase skincare and cosmetic products, plus gorgeous makeup looks that inspire us to be more adventurous with our face paint. 

#4 The Guilty Pleasures 


We hate to admit this, but there are some Instagrammers we follow simply because they’re really, really pretty. Nicole Changmin and Ding Xuan are our top two favourites and they kinda fall into both categories too. But it’s not all shallow adoration – we’re constantly inspired to stop being lazy and start putting our best faces forward! #TheStruggleIsReal

#5 The Photographer

As a professional photographer, Fiona’s photos are on a different level of aesthetics altogether. Each of her snaps – whether it’s of her work, travels, or every day life – are captured in stunning imagery that offers viewers a sliver of that very moment when the shutter clicked. 

#6 The Creative

In the photography equivalent of “One man’s rubbish is another man’s gold”, Yafiq Yusman transforms otherwise mundane views into interestingly artistic shots. Check out his shots of Singapore Polytechnic, the Textile Centre and Marina Bay Singapore and prepare to be amazed. 

#7 The Travellers

Andrea Chong and Cristabel Chua’s Instagram content covers far more than just travelling, but we find that theirs are the best at giving us glimpses of far-flung destinations in all their picturesque glory. And it doesn’t hurt that they’re gorgeously dressed while at it too. 

#8 Too Cool For School

 Effortlessly fashionable and spunky to boot, Chloe Choo and Linda Hao are the epitome of the elusive Instagram It Girl. Not only do we want to shop their entire wardrobes, we kinda want to try their daring styles – yes, even Chloe’s dreadlocked look. 

#9 The #Fitspo

Sandra Riley Tang isn’t just 1/4 of The Sam Willows – she also co-owns The Yoga Co., a popular yoga studio at Pahang Street. The biggest thing we enjoy about her feed, apart from the bite-sized glimpses we get of her life, is most probably how active this girl gets. One moment she’s doing impossible yoga moves, the next she’s doing Brazillian Jiu-jitsu – all while looking absolutely fab. Scrolling through her Instagram feed on lazy days helps get us up and moving. And now, you will too. 

#10 The Singaporean Lifestyle

Movie of the Week: X-Men: Apocalypse

18 May 2016 by Venetia Sng

 First was Batman v Superman, then came Captain America: Civil War and now X-Men: Apocalypse? This year can’t get any better already. Read on to find out more about the character Apocalypse – if you don’t read the comic – before you catch the movie! No spoilers, promise.

Since the dawn of civilisation, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

Here are 3 things you need to know about the mutant Apocalypse before heading down to the cinemas this week.

X-Men-Apocalypse

#1 Apocalypse was born 5,000 years ago in Aqaba (a coastal city in Jordan) abandoned by his biological parents. He was rescued by a group of scavengers known as The Sandstormers and he lives by their credo of “survival of the fittest.”

X-Men-Apocalypse-Four-Horsemen-2016

#2 The Four Horsemen that Apocalypse recruits in this film are Storm (Famine), Magneto (War), Archangel (Death), and Psylocke (Pestilence). Out of the four, Archangel is the only member of this group that is a Horseman in the comics.

#3 Both Tom Hardy and Idris Elba were considered for the part of Apocalypse. We can totally picture the both of them as Apocalypse!

X-Men: Apocalypse will be hitting the screens 19 May!

5 Things You Need To Know About Charlie Puth

10 May 2016 by Venetia Sng

You may know him as the singer behind the vocals ‘See You Again’ featured in Furious 7 and ‘Marvin Gaye’ featuring Megan Trainor, but there is more than meets the eye for this Berklee graduate! Here are 5 things you need to know about Charlie Puth.

#1 He was a YouTuber discovered by Ellen DeGeneres

His cover of Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ with Emily Luther gained a lot of attention, so much that Ellen DeGeneres wanted both of them on her show! When the Ellen team called him up, he thought that it was a prank and hung up on them, thrice! But everything went well in the end, he appeared on the show and even signed to her label, eleveneleven.

#2 A dog attack almost killed him

He got his permanent scar on his eyebrow from a dog attack which almost died from. So no, he didn’t shave his brows to seem cool. He is cool without trying.

#3 He’s a producer too

He wrote, co-produced, and was featured on a song with Wiz Khalifa, ‘See You Again’, a tribute to the late Paul Walker, included in the Furious 7 soundtrack. He also worked on several albums of other artists. He co-wrote and produced the ‘Broke’ and ‘Pull Up’ for Jason Derulo’s album Everything Is 4, and produced “Working Class Heroes (Work)” on CeeLo Green’s album Heart Blanche. Is he talented or what?

#4 He’s not dating Selena Gomez or Megan Trainor

He has worked with Megan for his debut single ‘Marvin Gaye’ and Selena for a track in his debut album ‘We Don’t Talk Anymore’. Despite all rumours, he’s just really good friends with both Selena and Megan. 

#5 He will be performing in Singapore
