1. For A Gorgeous, New Experience: Necessary Provisions

This new kid on the block is one surprising little hidden gem. Tucked away in the depths of Upper Bukit Timah, Necessary Provisions is everything you’d want from a cafe. Surreal lighting, dark walls, streaming sunlight, plants, gorgeous bakes, killer iced espresso and milk, and beer on tap. It’s worth the trek.

2. For A Happening Arts Scene: Artistry

Artistry is known for being a happening hotspot for arts events. It’s where budding artists share their work, and aspiring artistes take the stage at night. This is probably the only cafe you could get service from a “cute angmoh” ;) Remember to give him a pat on the back for his passion to support the local arts scene, and of course, for serving gorgeous cups of coffee.

3. For All Things Coffee: Chye Seng Huat Hardware

While quickly becoming a coffee institution, CSHH still manages to be a cosy space. The gorgeously modified industrial-chic interior of this old hardwarestore provides the perfect setting for enjoying a good cup of coffee. If you’refeeling adventurous, give their galvanized ale a try- literally coffee beer. It’s strangely good!

I am not someone who likes to brag because climbing brings nothing to humanity,
People have enough stuff, but they don’t have enough meaning.

Being believable isn’t just convincing people you can win, it’s convincing them that they want you to win.
You don’t want to skip over a great opportunity because you’re afraid to do something different.
What top mistakes do road runners make when they start trail running? Jeff: The first mistake is that their stride length is too long. Because of trail hazards like rocks, sticks, holes, uneven surfaces that change from step to step, a runner gains more stability by shortening the stride and having the foot land underneath their center of mass. The natural stride of a road runner has been embedded in the subconscious brain and they often maintain this stride when venturing onto the trails. This can result in more ankle injuries, less stability, and more falls. The second mistake is that runners bounce too much while trail running. By staying low to the ground while still clearing debris, trail runners have better control over foot movement. Road runners tend to bounce a bit higher and are often surprised by foot instability as they land. Finally, many runners go too fast on the downhills. Roads offer a smooth surface with few irregularities and road runners tend to run faster because of gravity and momentum. This speed on the trails doesn’t allow for careful placement of the feet around rocks and other obstacles.
Very often we don’t go elsewhere because we are looking for another person. We go elsewhere because we are looking for another self. It isn’t so much that we want to leave the person we are with as we want to leave the person we have become.
