If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise: If you can dream – and not make dreams your master; If you can think – and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the…

By Jenifer Yeo When two out of three of life’s greatest joys can be fulfilled in a single destination, it is no wonder South Australia has been the pulsating polestar of such delights. Fringed by its untouched wilderness and the legendary outback, to stunning, pristine coastline, it is perhaps its world-class food and wine that keeps discerning jet-setters coming back for more. Cruise the skies to Adelaide from Singapore. From Adelaide, you could choose the quick 45- to 50-minute domestic flight to Port Lincoln or take on the 7-hour highway to culinary heaven via National Highway A1 and Lincoln Hwy/B100. 1 The Fresh Fish Place Where better to start your journey than at the Eyre Peninsula’s seafood frontier. Sourcing ocean fare from the local fishers scattered around Eyre Peninsula’s vast coastline, this is South…

editor’s note

When America struggled with racial acceptance in 1964, the Peranakans in Singapore were patting themselves on the back for garnering an eclectic mix of friends to run around with. A people of a certain race with the language of another, it was a shining example of successful integration. Another instance would be those of mixed race. I myself am the product of such, when the perfect storm merged the bloodlines of the Arabs, Indonesians and Eurasians… all Singaporeans by the time they passed. Being a third generation Singaporean, and one who had represented Singapore in various Asian sporting events for over a decade, it was extremely comforting to produce this edition. Within, every page celebrates the history and heritage of what it is to be truly Singaporean. This includes the…

mysteries of the deep… revealed

Experience the journey, as the mysteries lurking in the deep are revealed, with perfectly preserved and extremely rare animals in crystalline detail. Odd and mesmeric, these breathtaking specimens will be accompanied by 67 images of captivating sea fauna and ethereal bioluminescent creatures, some photographed for the very first time. The images selected for the exhibition attest not only to the diversity of ocean life below 4,000 metres, but also to the technically demanding challenge of conducting research at these depths. The objective of The Deep is very clear and is two-fold: First, I wanted to share my fascination with the deep sea with everyone, not just my friends and family, and I wanted to show the animals themselves, as many as possible, because I realised that nothing replaces that contact with…

Dear Editor, After reading ASIAN Geographic No 110 Issue 2/2015, I have been inspired to start exploring the spices and herbs that come from this wonderfully rich continent. I cannot believe how almost every amazing taste that a spice has brought to my mouth comes from Asia.
