East Meets West At Birdfolks, Where American Fried Chicken Is Served With Kopi

There has been a recent spate of Korean-style fried chicken restaurants opening in Singapore. From 4Fingers to Chir Chir, sometimes all we want is just to have good ol’ American-style fried chicken.

Crispy, juicy, and greasy. That’s the way fried chicken should be, unclouded by a myriad of gimmicky flavours.

At Birdfolks, that is what they are serving – good ol’ American-style fried chicken.

[caption id="attachment_30504" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit:[/caption]

Leave It To The Birdfolks To Serve Good Fried Chicken

Located at 1 West Coast Drive, their Signature Chicken Rice Box ($9.90) includes edamame, sweet corn, cherry tomatoes, their house recipe boneless fried chicken and comes topped with a sous vide egg!

[caption id="attachment_30458" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit:[/caption]

The best part is you get to choose from 4 different flavours of rice!

Choose from Original, Cilantro Lime, Tomato Oregano, and the recommended Garlic Butter rice.

Someone get me a tissue. Now. I need to stop drooling!

If you’re looking for a more traditional chicken meal, try the Thigh & Drum ($12.90) which includes 2 pieces of their signature American-styled brined fried chicken, served with fries.

What makes their fried chicken special is that the chicken is brined in a blend of seasonings before frying. This allows the chicken to retain its juiciness, ensuring satisfaction with each bite.

[caption id="attachment_30501" align="aligncenter" width="1080"] Image Credit:[/caption]

Another popular item on the menu is the Wasabi Mayo Chicken Sandwich ($12.90).

Chopped fried chicken is tossed in wasabi mayo before being sandwiched in dark rye sourdough (because white bread and burger buns are mainstream) with julienned carrots and corn kernels for crunch.

[caption id="attachment_30502" align="alignnone" width="1080"] Image Credit: @the_xw[/caption]

The cafe doesn’t serve up much in terms of drinks. Diners can choose from canned drinks ($2.80), honey lime tea ($2.60 for hot, $3.20 for iced), chocolate ($2.60 for hot, $3.20 for cold), kopi or teh. The choice of drink is clear. Teh is the weh (way) to go.

This quaint fried chicken joint currently seats 30 people and the food is really satisfying. We recommend that you pop by if you’re in the area!

The Average Singaporean Lifestyle Automatically Ages Your Hair – Here’s How

Many of us are familiar with the term ‘skin age’, but did you know there is also such a thing as ‘hair age’?

Like our skin and the various parts of our body, our hair ages too. With age, it grows thin, turns grey, gets dry and brittle, and can lose its shine – these are all signs of ageing when it comes to the hair on our heads.

Maybe you’re touching your hair, wondering if you’re a 20-something with 30-year-old hair. Don’t worry, you’re not alone. In fact, many Singaporeans actually have hair older than they are! That’s simply because there are many factors about the average Singaporean’s lifestyle that can age your hair.

If you’re curious about what some of these factors are, here are 3 things you had no idea are ageing your crowning glory:

1. Sun Damage

[caption id="attachment_28910" align="alignnone" width="1429"] Image Credit: Vitalitas Portal[/caption]

Most of us Singaporeans are well familiar with how much sunshine this littler red dot sees (Read: LOTS of sun).

By being out in the sun for a long time, we subject our hair to UVA and UVB rays, which damages the outer covering of our hair strands (the ‘cuticle’), resulting in a dry, dull and brittle mane.

The next time you foresee yourself spending hours under the hot sun, try sporting a cap, or moisturise your tresses with oils, conditioners and treatments to keep them looking youthful and healthy!

2. Over-shampooing

[caption id="attachment_28911" align="alignnone" width="648"] Image Credit: Image Credit: Awards TrichoKare has won[/caption]

The brand has won multiple beauty awards, including the Singapore Women’s Weekly Hair Awards 2017 (Best Volumising Treatment For Thinning Hair), Elle Beauty Treat List 2017 (Best Treatment For Hair Loss), Daily Vanity (Top 10 Trusted Hair Treatment Centre 2017), Her World Spa Awards 2016 and Harper’s Bazaar Hair Awards 2016. It also counts celebrities like Xiaxue, Jaynesh and Anand among its clients!

[caption id="attachment_28914" align="alignnone" width="1343"] TrichoKare counts celebrities like Xiaxue, Jaynesh and Anand among its clients.[/caption]

Whether you find out your hair is 5, 10, or 20 years older than you, TrichoKare’s got your hair needs covered with its new anti-ageing hair treatment.

Their Advanced Age Defying Hair Treatment helps to fight signs of ageing hair. It is specially developed to help both men and women counteract age-related changes in the density and diameter of their hair.

[caption id="attachment_28916" align="alignnone" width="663"] Signs of ageing hair[/caption]

The treatment features the new Oxyjet Technology – a needleless jet infusion of oxygen and nutrients used to penetrate deeply into the scalp. It helps to detox the scalp, reactivate up to 80% of dormant hair follicles, accelerate cell regeneration to stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss.

The key ingredients the hair care specialist uses to counteract ageing hair is:

Emu Oil

  • Boost the diameter and thickness of each hair
  • Reactivate 80% of dormant hair follicles

Gingko Biloba extract

  • Counteract signs of scalp ageing
  • Boost collagen to increase new hair growth

Beauty Blogger, Rae was sent down to TrichoKare to find out more about the treatment. She took the Advanced Tricho Hair Test conducted by the certified Trichologist. How old was her hair? It was revealed that her hair was 41 years old – a good 7 years older than she is!

[caption id="attachment_28918" align="alignnone" width="720"] Before[/caption]


[caption id="attachment_28920" align="alignnone" width="640"] After[/caption]


“After my session with Trichokare, my scalp feels healthier and visibly cleaner than I have ever felt before. With a customised hair treatment, the solution really identifies the root of my problem. In the before scan, you can see the sebum buildup and dry flakes. These were completely removed, I was impressed by the results! I’ve since observed less flakes and reduced hair fall even after 2 weeks. The session with Trichokare definitely taught me on better haircare techniques, what should and should not be done.” – Rae

After just 1 month of treatment, TrichoKare’s customers saw visible changes including a reduction of premature grey hair as well as an increase in hair growth.

NUS Opening 140 Modules To Alumni Sounds Good, But Not If You Read Closely

Yesterday, the National University of Singapore (NUS) announced that it will be opening 140 courses to its alumni over the next three years. This comes as part of its efforts to promote lifelong learning.

When something sounds too good to be true, it often is. Before you get excited and start making plans with all your ex-uni mates from NUS, here are some things you should know about the courses being made available to you.

1. It will only be free for one year

Don’t be misled by the headlines. While alumni can attend for free for the first year (August 2017 – July 2018) of this three-year offering, the subsequent two years will not come at completely zero cost.

While the $3,000 to $3,500 per module course fee will be waived, a student service fee of $261.85 will be charged per semester.

2. NUS Alumni can only take a maximum of 2 modules over the 3-year period

Before you get excited thinking about going back to school, you should know that you can only take a maximum of 2 modules. Not per semester, not per year, but for the entire 3-year period. You are also limited to taking only one module per semester.

3. Modules you are eligible for heavily depends on your degree/major

Most of the modules offered are at the post-graduate level, with entry pre-requisites including Bachelor of Engineering/Science/etc., or the stricter Bachelor with a specified major. More lenient pre-requisites include Bachelor degree relating to a particular are of study (e.g computing), with only a handful of courses available with zero pre-requisites.

[caption id="attachment_26095" align="alignnone" width="1077"] Part of the list of modules offered for Semester 1, AY2017/2018[/caption]

Being a Psychology major who studied in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, who also took a couple of business modules, I can see from a quick glance that I am only eligible for a total of 15 unique modules out of 140, spread over the 2 semesters—most of which are offered by the School of Business.

These modules include Project Management, Decision Analytics Using Spreadsheets, Legal Environment of Business. From the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, which offers courses with no pre-requisites, I am also eligible to take Social Entrepreneurship and Value-Focused Negotiation.

4. Representation of Arts and Social Sciences courses limited

For those who studied at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences like I did, you’ll be disappointed to know that only 2 modules are offered by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences during AY2017/2018: Prescribed Texts In Literature and Seminar in Chinese Pragmatics. To attend, you must have an NUS Honours degree (2nd Class and above) or equivalent, or a good Bachelors degree.

Before you get excited thinking about returning to your alma mater and giving your uni experience a do-over, taking modules you missed out on or learning things you didn’t get the chance to back when you were in school, these are some things you may have missed that are worth taking note of.

As far as these courses are concerned, it’s not about learning for the sake of learning or to expose yourself to different things—it’s much more about deepening your knowledge in your existing field.

What If We Told You, You’ve Been Choosing Your Christmas Gifts Wrong All Along?

Let’s be honest, while we Singaporeans love Christmas (the lights, the food, the endless parties and get-togethers!), picking out the perfect gifts for family and friends can be pretty tough.

Chances are, after hours of searching and walking up and down Orchard Road, you would have settled for the typical gift sets, hampers and bags of sweet treats to give out to family, friends and colleagues (don’t even try to deny it)!

5 Apartments In Singapore That Are Role Models ‘Cos They’re So Green

Today, there are more than 1 million public housing flats in 23 towns with over 80% living in HDB flats. With a focus on eco green living, other “vertical villages” like high-rise and high-density private condominiums and apartments are on the rise as well.

But, are these ‘green’ apartments merely just buildings with expensive solar panels and high technology mechanisms?

Well, we debunk this myth by introducing 5 high rise apartments that are role models because they’ve successfully incorporated eco green living in Singapore.

You’d totally want to live in a home like that.

1. The Topiary

Located at the west of Sengkang New Town along Fernvale Lane, The Topiary Fernvale EC is the first Executive Condominium launched in Sengkang.

It is equipped with full Condo facilities including aerobic/yoga rooms, hydrotherapy beds and even an onsen!


Designed by DP Architects, The Topiary was built with sustainable materials, and its building configuration and site orientation promotes natural ventilation and daylighting.

[caption id="attachment_16067" align="alignnone" width="1800"]Image Credit: Kheng Leong Image Credit: Kheng Leong[/caption]

Not only can residents enjoy the common sky terraces outdoors, but they can also enjoy energy-efficient air-conditioners indoors that all units come with!

The Topiary
Address: 11 Fernvale Lane

2. Punggol Waterway Ridges

We all know Punggol is increasingly popular with many up and coming developments. But what we may not know is that many of these developments promote sustainable living.

One of these is Punggol Waterway Ridges, which was recently awarded the HDB Design Award in September and is due for completion this December.

[caption id="attachment_16260" align="alignnone" width="1000"]punggol-waterway-ridges-2 Image Credit: HDB[/caption]

Located along Edgefield Plains and on the northern bank of the Waterfront town, residents can enjoy waterfront living while conserving water!

3. SkyTerrace @ Dawson

Located in Dawson Estate in the Alexandra area, this project has ecologically conscious technologies like drip irrigation, rainwater harvesting, bio-retention basins and solar energy systems.

[caption id="attachment_17260" align="alignnone" width="1600"]Image Credit: SCDA Architects Image Credit: SCDA Architects[/caption]

At SkyTerrace @ Dawson, there are five towers ranging from 40 to 43 storeys and elevated gardens with lush greenery.

These link through bridges, allowing residents to enjoy the natural environment and enjoy interaction with fellow residents.

Sky Terrace @ Dawson
Address: 89 Dawson Road

4. Casa Clementi

Landscaping in public housing has definitely reached a whole new level.

Casa Clementi in Clementi Avenue 1 has an award-winning landscaped deck that links ten blocks in the estate.

[caption id="attachment_16264" align="alignnone" width="1280"]Image Credit: Greenroofs Image Credit: Greenroofs[/caption]

Not only is the green roof multi-functional with paved open plazas, but there are also children’s play stations and perimeter pathways.


These pathways can double as a 660m jogging track. They serve many purposes – as a water irrigation system, and also to conceal the carpark.

Residents can unwind in this gardenscape after a long day and enjoy the feel of what may otherwise be mistaken as a private condominium!

Casa Clementi
Address: Clementi Ave 1

5. NTU North Hill Residential Hill

Who would have thought that a residential hall in a school could be so popular?

Not only are these NTU’s residential halls the first public high-rises in Singapore to use a “Lego-style” construction method, but they are also one of the newest eco-friendly high-rise buildings.

[caption id="attachment_17261" align="alignnone" width="1444"]Image Credit: Straits Times Image Credit: Straits Times[/caption]

There are sustainable features such as energy-saving lighting and solar-powered systems. One of the green features is that all rooms in the residential halls have special “Low-E” glazed windows. These windows reflect heat using a special coating.

NTU North Hill Residential Hall
Address: 50 Nanyang Walk

Singapore has definitely upped its green game in the recent years.

The next time you’re looking for a new home, you may want to consider if it is eco-friendly!

Not only did this local singer start a Milo craze which resulted in milo trucks making an appearance at Plaza Singapura, he also gave this popular local dish a special shoutout, BAK CHOR MEE!

Bak Chor Mee is the quintessential comfort food, not only can you find it in every other coffeeshop, you can have it in so many different ways! Here at DSG, we’re always on the hunt for the best foods and that (of course) includes Bak Chor Mee. Here are the top 6 places where you (and Nathan Hartono) can satisfy those Bak Chor Mee cravings!

1. Hill Street Tai Hwa Pork Noodle

Don’t be fooled into thinking this Bak Chor Mee spot has no queue, they have a queue number system so be prepared to wait up to an hour for a bowl here. Dishes at Macpherson Minced Meat Noodles are prepared individually and are crafted with springy noodles and stripes of braised pork belly and crispy lard. While the dish is amazing on its own get it with soup on the side, the rich pork broth is the perfect compliment to this popular local dish.

7 Best Places For Team Sports: Grab Them Buddies & Get Some Exercise!

Ask any kid what their favourite lesson in school is, and the answer will no doubt be, “PE lesson!”

The days of school and PE lessons were undoubtedly one of the fondest times of our lives.

I’m sure we all remember how much fun we had bonding and competing with our classmates and teammates in a wide array of team sports and activities.

Wanna relive those days? Grab a few buddies and experience that same sense of camaraderie and team spirit again!


Many of us enjoyed playing basketball because of how inclusionary yet intense it was. Regardless of skill level, people could participate in some shape or form, all while having some good competitive fun.

A crowd favourite back in good old PE class, we had tons of fun regardless of the conditions, be it makeshift goalposts or dingy patches of uneven grass.

By the end of each kick-about, we’d be in tatters – run-ragged and bronzed almost beyond recognition, but it was all worth it.
