Looking Forward With the end of the year approaching, it’s only natural for many of us to take a moment to pause and reflect; to look back at how the year has been and whether we’ve stuck to the goals we set ourselves. Remember those New Year’s resolutions you were determined to accomplish? Have you managed to achieve them? If you haven’t, what steps have you taken to get closer to those targets? No matter how near or far away you are from achieving what you set out to, it’s important to remind yourself that things take time, and persistence and consistency is what counts in the end. In the case of Anthony Mackie, it took him 20 years of hard work before he ended up being part of one of the biggest cinematic…

Sure, you’ve heard of Tupperware, scrap-booking, wine tasting and spa parties. But it’s not just girls who know how to have fun. Men can have their share of ingenious ways to get together. Just add waxing to that list. Better still, a bachelor Brazilian waxing party for your buddy who’s soon to be married. While it might not sound like an ideal evening out for some, waxing parties are gaining popularity the world over. In Singapore, bachelor waxing is a new Brazilian waxing experience introduced by Thomas D’esthetique, the leading men’s aesthetics, wellness and skincare salon. Its founder, Thomas Tong, has over 20 years of experience as a face and body aromatherapist for men, skilled at hair removal via Brazilian waxing. Thomas D’esthetique provides two waxing services to suit one’s comfort level.…

Maybe. Do you notice your stress rising in an uncomfortable way during interpersonal situations too? Are your friends and family voicing concerns? Anger’s a completely valid human emotion. But it can become a problem when it affects your health or the wellbeing of the people around you. People with chronic anger have an active adrenal system, leading to increased risk for pulmonary issues. So notice your anger. Then pause and breathe. Try “box breathing”: Slowly inhale, holding your breath, then exhale. When your anger is under your control, you can communicate your needs rather than Incredible Hulking through life. My wife thinks my breakfast is weird, and my kids make fun of me.

MY GIRLFRIEND SAID I “GAVE” HER A UTI. IS IT ACTUALLY MY FAULT? – MARK Your fault? No. The fault of the sex you had? Probably. A urinary tract infection is when bacteria (from your own body or someone else’s) gets into your urethra. Docs have even labelled UTIs “honey-moon cystitis” because the main causes include frequent sex – particularly very lubricated sex. For a woman to prevent them, she should pee before and after sex. Be a mensch and remind her not to fall asleep without hitting the loo.…
