step out of your comfort zone

I find this anonymous quote really funny yet true: “‘I wish I had never gone travelling.’ Said no one ever!” Indeed, travel broadens one’s horizons and the voyage of discovery opens up our hearts and minds as we experience new cultures. While some perceive travelling as a way to show off on their social feed, let’s not forget how it has made your life richer, not so much in monetary gains but rather, in life experiences—no money could ever buy that. With February being our travel issue, our cover stars Teo Yi Ping and Bella Kuan encapsulate the topic rather well, as avid travellers and great friends who have been through a lot together—experiencing “the good, the bad, the ugly”. They won’t say anything more about it, but it does rouse…

Ckay Liow This talented hairstylist showcased his flair while styling our two gorgeous cover stars’ hair. If you could fix one world problem, what would it be? I’d put an end to plastic pollution, as it is currently a major contributor to the problems faced by our oceans and marine life. In one word, what do you live for? Gratitude!

the continuation of a legacy

From 2018 to 2019, four influential figures in architecture, music, dance and literature have each chosen a student for a year of creative collaboration and an exchange of knowledge; where Sir David Adjaye (architecture), Zakir Hussain (music), Crystal Pite (dance) and Colm Toíbín (literature) have worked with Mariam Kamara, Marcus Gilmore, Khoudia Touré and Colin Barrett respectively. Conceived in 2002, this 17-year-old programme supports the pursuit of excellence, quality and performance—values that resound with the watchmaking company’s own. And from this year onwards, the Rolex Arts Initiative will address disciplines in alternating periods, where the 2020-2021 programme would involve film, theatre, visual arts and a variable eighth mentorship that will take place in other fields of the arts and is multidisciplinary. Moreover, the programme schedule is designed to naturally evolve…

rumour mill

SCENE STEALER A young socialite was caught smuggling some of the leftover doorgifts during a bridal shower. Sneakily hiding her bounty underneath her jacket, only the waiters present noticed her petty thievery. She therefore successfully made a quick exit before anyone stopped her. STICKY FINGERS At a recent award show, one of the executive staff members of a five-star hotel was seen stashing away a piece of stemware for personal use, with the hosts turning a blind eye. Kleptomaniac much? ‘GONE GIRL’ An esteemed name in the circle of the elite has a couple of skeletons in her closet: she’s not who she says she is. Having married thrice and twice divorced, this influencer has allegedly wiped off any trace of her past from all of her social media handles, beginning a ‘clean slate’, if…

When Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir was in Pakistan for the first time, she had a tough time looking for credible information to make the right preparations. This made her realise that travel too is a gendered domain.

Launched in 2017, ZafigoX is an event made up of inspiring as well as informative talks, comprising in-depth panellists plus exclusive workshops, all aimed to encourage and empower more women to explore the world with confidence and courage. We speak to her to find out more about the platforms. How does the team keep the subject of travel fresh and relevant? For the Zafigo website, there is no shortage of stories…
