If anything, Liang Yu (who’s also our Teenage Gorgeous You! 2015 winner!) has a knack for turning everything he eats into gram-worthy bites. You can count on him to show you the newest cafes and eateries in the hood, as well as the dishes worth ordering when you’re there. Aside from his artistic flair, we love how informative his account is with the names and prices of the food, making it easier for you to set aside a budget before visiting. 

RUBBISH EAT RUBBISH GROW (@rubbisheatrubbishgrow)

Brutally honest to a fault, Rubbish Eat Rubbish Grow (RERG) consists of a group of people who are ardently passionate about food. Unlike most food blogs that are highly-commercialised, RERG chooses to bring in only the most honest food reviews, so if you are looking for a breath of fresh air away from all the sponsored food reviews, this is it. Check out their site for some of the funniest and concise food reviews, but do not be disappointed if you don’t find your favourite restaurant there, because they are seriously selective on what they write about. 

CLARA BEAN (@explodingbelly)

This way, you’ll know when the food doesn’t just look good, it is worth it to try it out yourself too. It is a joy looking at Clara’s profile because she’s not just funny, she’s also terribly #relatable. She has a blog documenting her foodie adventures too.

It’s been barely two weeks since the release of the iPhone X and already the rumour mill is buzzing that Apple will be launching three iPhones in 2018. 

According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose research team has been pretty spot on with their predictions so far, Apple will launch “three new iPhone models in 2H18: 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED models and a 6.1-inch TFT-LCD model, all equipped with a full-screen design and TrueDepth Camera (front 3D sensing), as with iPhone X.” And while two of the iPhone models will be targeting a high-end market, the third will be aiming towards the middle and low-end markets with a predicted price tag of USD$649 to $749. Additionally, the latter could sport a lower-resolution screen and feature facial recognition instead of a fingerprint sensor. 

While we’ll have to wait and see if these rumours are true, here’s what the internet has to say:

13 Nov 2017 by Johanna Teo

Protect your pricey iPhone X with hardy yet stylish casings that’ll fit your every demand.

Apple’s most expensive and most fragile phone to date, the recently released iPhone X boasts a nearly bezel-free, gorgeous edge-to-edge glass construction that most reviewers have guaranteed will shatter at the first drop, which is troublesome (and cost inefficient) to say the least. Luckily, there have been plenty of casing options released that’ll both act as a barrier (to whatever life brings) and keep your pricey iPhone X stylishly pristine while at it. Here are 22 casings that have caught our eye.
