This Halloween, escape the horrors by stepping onboard a real sailing ship from a bygone era – the Royal Albatross for a mystery cruise departing Resorts World Sentosa at 7.30pm. In the first event of its kind in Singapore, this 2.5 hour cruise promises to be full of fun ( and a few frightening ) surprises, so come along in your best Halloween outfits for an outrageous costume party ( theme: pirates ) on the high seas!

Encircled in a shroud of mist, secured by creaky ropes attached to the jetty, there is the silhouette of an old pirate ship. The neon haze and the smoke-filled decks of this olden 4-masted schooner, transport you back in time to the swashbuckling age of the 17th century when imprisoned sailors would be chained below deck awaiting unsuspecting passengers. No fear nowadays, the holds have been converted into colourful energetic bars serving the Captain’s favourite concoctions such Sleepy Hollow, Dead Man’s Chest and Cauldron Brew!

Bone Setter Chris Leong to Fix Frozen Shoulder ( 跌打CLM式骨正馆 )

singapore lifestyle blogger reviews chris leong tit tar
Bone setting is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, widely popular in Asia to cure the disbalance of the skeleton, muscles and joints. Patients go to a Bone Setter for fractures, dislocations or musculoskeletal injuries in general.

Being in the 50s and going through the menopause phase is no joke as my health seemed to have taken a toll overnight. After a recent surgery to remove a Ganglion Cyst in March, I have been down with shoulder pain for some months now. Did X-rays, Ultrasound and even Bone Density Test but results were all good. I have also tried Shockwave Therapy, Radio Frequency, Acupuncture, Tui Na etc, but nothing seemed to help. Then I stumbled upon Bone Setter Chris Leong of CL Method Tit Tar ( 跌打CLM式骨正馆 ), a prominent figure in Facebook with numerous viral videos showing his bone setting treatments.

bone setting experience with chris leong tit tar
I found out about Master Chris Leong’s Tit Tar Tour, and managed to secure a slot to see him. This post is about my bone setting experience with Master Chris to treat what he had diagnosed as a Frozen Shoulder ( 肩周炎 ), with videos of my “ adventure “.

Adhesive Capsulitis in medical term, Frozen Shoulder is also commonly known as 五十肩, literally translating to Fifty-Year-Old Shoulder, because this condition tends to happen to people around the age of 50. Having a frozen shoulder can be a painful experience, but bone setting is definitely not for the faint-hearted, so fasten your seat-belt as I bring you through my Bone Setting Experience with Chris Leong Method Tit Tar!

Purple Sage Elevates Catering Service With New Concepts

purple sage catering service apple yuzu appetizer
Purple Sage today elevated Singapore’s food service by bringing the ‘farm to plate’ concept into catering as it unveiled its new logo at a showcase event. While consumers today are particular about the freshness of the ingredients used in the cooking, feasting with all the senses is as important as the dishes and setting looking Instagrammable. Clients seek solutions beyond traditional dining experiences. Bearing these in mind, Purple Sage introduced new concepts such as “The Secret Garden”. The team of chefs literally handpicked live ingredients such as varieties of cress such as Cress Coriander and Cress Red Veined Sorrel at the cooking stations. Non-GMO chicken and fresh fish from sustainable sources are combined with food technology to present all-sensory and well-presented holistic gastronomic dishes a la minute (to order).

Mr Alan Tan, Co-Owner and Managing Director of Purple Sage, said: “More and more consumers, particularly millennials, want to know where their food products come from. We have brought the farm to plate concept in a sustainable way into the catering service so as to stay ahead in the industry while supporting local farmers.”

In buffets, it can be observed that there is much wastage especially leftover food that has to be discarded. Purple Sage has come up with a solution by doing away with chafing dish sets. It replaced disposable ware with crockery made of ‘opeh’ (leaves of the Betal Nut Palm).
