Thecrazydonny’s Guide to Melbourne!

Australia is a country (and continent) popular with Singaporeans and Malaysians, be it to go on holiday, study or live in. A prime example would be the city, Melbourne. Melbourne has been voted by the Economist Intelligence Unit as the most livable city for the 7th year in a row, and it houses prestigious Universities like the University of Melbourne and RMIT.

But today, I am not going to do that, maybe on another occasion… What I want to discuss about in this article is whether a Michelin Star guide will do more harm than good for Singapore…

Starbucks Coffee Seminar Review

Many people across Singapore drink coffee on a daily basis, that’s a fact… But, a vast majority of them make their coffee at home, rather than buying a cup at a coffeehouse like Starbucks or just a simple coffee shop. But, so few for them truly know how to brew ground coffee, it is truly an art to get all the aspects right (I am not referring to those people just emptying a packet of powdered coffee into a cup, that’s not brewing).
