editor’s letter

Wow, there’s so much in store as February springs upon us. With the Lunar New Year falling mid-month, The Weekly is here to get you ready and feeling fab in less time, and with less stress. We’ve got easy, stylish home-organising startegies (page 120) to get your space all ready for guests. And do you really need that dress hanging in your closet for the past three years? Fashion stylist Aaron Kok tells you what to dump (or donate), keep, or invest in to look chic this year (page 66). I like what self-care educator Eleanor Brownn says, “Clutter is not just physical stuff. It’s old ideas, toxic relationships and bad habits – anything that does not support your better self.” How true! Make this your best year yet by dumping old…

in full bloom

Fresh from her honeymoon to Europe, where she and fellow actor husband Jeremy Chan traversed Italy, Spain and Portugal, Jesseca Liu wistfully recalls how she misses the beauty and architecture of the Mediterranean. “Europe is so romantic,” she muses during our cover shoot at Mita Kelder Photography’s sprawling home studio, in between sips of bird’s nest soup from her flask. “I loved Florence best; just walking through the cobbled streets is so enjoyable and relaxing.” It was also in Florence that a bird unexpectedly pooped on Jeremy’s head, just as they were contemplating whether to enter a restaurant. “It was so funny because a huge flock of birds flew by suddenly, and before we knew it, there were bird droppings on Jeremy’s head,” Jesseca recalls with a chuckle. “Of course I had to…
