Wilkie Edge has always been known as “that Kaplan building” but behind its scholastic facade lies a wealth of F&B options, IG-worthy spots and even a dojang. As part a challenge for Teenage Gorgeous You! 2017, we sent our finalists there to find out the fun things one can get up to there. These are what they came up with.
Had a long day of studying? Head to Wilkie Edge for a pampering session! As Vivien (@veeeyeo) found out, Wilkie Edge is well-equipped for students to do exactly that, with a nail parlor, hair salon and even a traditional massage place to boot! Now you know where to go the next time you’re in need of some TLC.
Eat Hipster Food
Mango floral jelly, kebab platters and cold pressed juice? There’s no doubt Kaplan students are kept well-fed with Wilkie Edge’s many food options. You don’t even have to step out of the building! Don (@donnygao) snagged a spot at Happy Tummy, a cafe that offers both healthy food and sinful fare, and had a whale of a time snapping shots and chowing down.
Work Out, Taekwondo-style
If you’re tired of heading to the gym for a run-of-the-mill workout, kick your exercise routine into high gear at Hyun Taekwondo Academy. Not only will you get to learn super cool self-defense skills, you’ll also get to do so while looking super fly! Check out Tyler (@tylomere) getting all pumped outside the dojang – needless to say, you’ll have a fun time there! PS: the academy offers a free trial session for first-timers so go sign up to get a feel of what’s in store!
Print Tumblr-Worthy Stuff
Students usually head to the printing stores only when they have course materials or assignments to submit, but not Derrick (@drrickjl). We’re pretty impressed with the aesthetically pleasing photo collage that he made at AMAZINE, the friendly printing shop at Wilkie Edge.
Take IG-Approved Shots
You’d be surprised at how many Instagrammable nooks and crannies there are at Wilkie Edge. Check out the different OOTD spots that Jessica (@jessicatanx), Chloe (@chhloe_)and Joyce (@jwanting) came up with. And for those architectural/interior design enthusiasts, just take a look at Amyn’s (@amynosaurus) shots of Kaplan decor. #Instaworthymaximum
Getting In Touch With Nature
Another little known fact about Wilkie Edge: it has 14 sky terraces – three of which you can chill at! Incidentally also a really cool place to take pictures at, these picturesque sky gardens are a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
