We’re kicking off SG53 with a bang!

It seems like just yesterday that we were celebrating SG53, but we’re now halfway through another great year. 2018 has been a special one, starting with the revival of the 1987 NDP classic ‘We Are Singapore’ by local singer-songwriter Charlie Lim – which garnered heaps of praise from fellow Singaporeans. But Charlie isn’t the only one doing our little red dot proud; we’ve got other influential personalities who also deserve just as much recognition.

In this edition, we shine the spotlight on people who are putting Singapore on the map in ways never before imagined – from local acts making their mark abroad, to young designers leading the fashion scene, to unsung millennial heroes who have been making a difference.

Of course, not forgetting the fun stuff. The upcoming months are filled with plenty of cool gigs like Sam Smith and Paramore, as well as mega fests like HallyuPopFest and F1. But what we’re most excited for is our cover stars SEVENTEEN’s IDEAL CUT concert in September, so we packed in loads of OT13 content for your reading pleasure. Oh, and did we mention there are four posters inside too?

Happy August, everyone!

Whether you’re a curious hobbyist or an unstoppable science geek, you’ll want to secure a spot at the first-of-its-kind Future Food euglena workshop held at the Singapore Science Centre. Just in time for the March holidays, this one-day event allows you to explore the fascinating world of euglena. Ready to play mad scientist?

Here, you get to see, feel and taste euglena – a single-celled micro-organism that might just help to save the planet. Despite being only 0.05mm in length (it’s thinner than a strand of hair!), this wonder microalga packs a punch; it exhibits both plant- and animal-like characteristics, which means it has the ability to move around and reproduce rapidly with water and light for sustenance. Plus, it contains a whopping 59 different vitamins, minerals and amino acids, making it a potent element in superfoods, cosmetics and possibly jet fuel in the future.

But the future ain’t too far away, as you can now learn more about euglena at this upcoming workshop. To ensure that you get the best experience, you’ll be assisted by top-notch Japanese researchers so rest assured you’ll be in good hands. Be sure to sign up ASAP as spots are limited!

Relive The Final Showdown Of NYP Groove! 2018

29 Jan 2018 by Teenage

The Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) Open House was bustling with various activities, but the NYP Groove! 2018 Finals was definitely the highlight that stole the show on 6 January 2018. It was an intense battle to the finish as a total of 15 talented dance crews from the Secondary School and ITE categories tore up the stage with their fiercest choreographies.

 

A post shared by Nanyang Polytechnic (@nanyangpoly) on

Drawing a massive crowd of cheering spectators, the atmosphere was explosive as all eyes were on the finalists to see which team would eventually emerge victorious as the overall champions. Dressed to impress in their streetwear finest and rocking killer makeup, each team brought plenty of swag to the stage – jaw-dropping formations, foot-stomping moves, epic hair whips and all. A couple of teams even went the extra mile of incorporating special props into their choreography, but we gotta give kudos to ITE category finalist K-East for cleverly plugging NYP midway through the routine. Way to leave an impression!
