Issue 9 -"Chomp!"
Sashi Cheliah is the winner of MasterChef Australia 2018, and he was born and bred in Singapore. He joins a small but growing list of Asians who have won prestigious cooking competitions. Food is of great interest to many, be it to cook it or simply to consume it.
With the trend of keeping fit, some have put themselves on various diets ranging from vegan diets to the more carnivorous paleo diets. There is now fresh interest in organic food too, food that is touted to be more natural and healthier alternative, albeit often more expensive. On the other end of the spectrum, some scientists have begun making artificial food in an effort to help preserve limited resources, such as the lab-grown ‘beef’ burger. We cannot stop talking about food, can we?
Issue 10 -"Media Mania"
YouTube did not start out thinking it would be a platform for budding celebrities, but it certainly has proven to be just that. A number of celebrities such as singers Justin Bieber and Souja Boy, and YouTube sensation PewDiePie and popular travel vlogger Nuseir Yassin (or Nas) found stardom through this media. Do YouTubers then have a responsibility towards its viewers, to be positive influencers?
Popular media also strongly influences the culture of a society, such as the impact of Hollywood, and more recently, K-pop. Perceptions of what is beauty and what is appropriate behaviour are often dictated by such trends. Popular media certainly has a part to play in globalisation, opening up the world and minds.
Issue 11 - "Walking With The Wild"
Hedgehogs, hissing cockroaches, geckos. This is not just a list of animals, but a list of some of the exotic pets living in Singapore’s HDB flats.
Animals have always fascinated humans, whether we strive to care for them, dominate them, make money out of them or simply eat them. From hunting and illegal trading to parading of animals and abuse for Man’s selfish pleasure, animals, including those that should rule the jungle, seem to be at our mercy. Man’s irresponsible actions such as polluting the water and poaching may also cause more animals to face extinction. How do we strive to conserve and care for animals so that they continue to be part of our planet?
