LUO JINGMEI After earning her Master of Architecture degree at the National University of Singapore, Luo Jingmei was mentored at Ipli Architects, before a love of the written word inspired her foray into the publishing world.

The circuit-breaker period has inspired many of us to get our hands covered in dough, whipping up pastries and other baked treats to keep busy. If you’ve had enough of baking banana breads and brownies, it’s time to give this citrus olive oil cake recipe a try.
