AsiaOne has launched EarthOne , a new section dedicated to environmental issues — because we love the planet and we believe science. Find articles like this there . Living with toddlers is an everyday struggle. A struggle of having your mobile phones, TV remote controls, and random belongings 'stolen' by them, that is. If you have been around toddlers long enough, you'd probably agree that they love what the adults are obsessed with (read: smartphones and remotes) more than actual store-bought toys. To put an end to my woes, I gave my twin nephews their very own handheld device — highly controversial I know, but read on. I also gave the 14-month-olds a switch, a night light, and a (bubble tea) cup full of ping pong balls. In return, they gave me 15 minutes of peace. A pretty good deal, I'd say. Intrigued yet? Here's what I did: I got all of the aforementioned items, found a few recyclable coffee pod boxes, kitchen towel roll, random ribbons and strings from ... » Learn More about I tried making ‘toys’ for my nephews with everyday trash — and I’ll never waste money on store-bought ones again
Most of us would recall the little moments back in elementary school when we proudly presented our mothers with a handcrafted gift for Mother’s Day, often crookedly made out of clay or imperfectly cut out from colored papers, bearing the heartwarming words: “For Mom”. Fast forward to us all grown up – the art of choosing gifts today has become seemingly harder to master, especially when faced with an increasingly wide set of choices. After a particularly challenging year, Filipinos — moms included — are yearning to travel with their family and loved ones amidst the ongoing pandemic. So why not put those long-lost DIY skills to good use and plan a getaway just “For Mom”? We might not be able to drive mom to the family’s favourite resort just yet, but this means more time to plan her next escapade — and Airbnb may have just the right tools to help you discover the perfect vacation spot! This Mother’s Day, Airbnb has curated a collection of Stays and Online Experiences to inspire ... » Learn More about What Mom wants: Gifting made easy with Airbnb wishlists
Mother Nature has done the hard work for us, figuring out how to repair, rejuvenate and thrive in harsh environments. All that’s left for us to do is pack our regimens with her best offerings. Beauty nerds will appreciate this: plant extracts are nothing new, but what scientists are figuring out is that when plants thrive in more natural environments, they deliver more powerful extracts. Using more parts of the plant, like adding stems and leaves to petal extracts, pays dividends too. So while the ingredients may sound familiar, they’re actually able to do more. Traditionally, we’ve looked to plants for protection from the elements (hello, antioxidants) and to help skin calm down (oh hi, lavender). Now plants are a go-to for skin-refining enzymes, natural alternatives to line-smoothers, and exciting new ways to energise exhausted cells. We’re taking the fortitude, resilience and beauty we see in the natural world, and encouraging our complexions to take on these same ... » Learn More about Your ultimate guide to plant-based skincare
Back in 2012, a friend told us of a man who travelled all the way to Penang just to eat the laksa. Now that’s some foodie trip! Some people thought he was insane. We think he’s a man after our own heart. Though we can can’t go beyond our borders just to eat, we can head to the ulu reaches of Singapore to have a meal. We’ve chosen these places for the whole “travel” experience. For Easties who seldom venture westwards past Geylang for a meal, and vice versa, this list is for you. After all, it’s always fun to try out new things, right? 1. Marina Bistro 10 Tuas West Dr, Singapore 638404 We can’t think of any place further west than Raffles Marina , located just a stone’s throw away (if you throw stones like the Winter Soldier) from the Tuas Link MRT station. The bistro here serves “international cuisine” such as Seafood Laksa, Hydrabadi Lamb Biryani or Australian Black Angus Rib-Eye Beef Steak (above, 240g of mouth-watering meaty goodness).

YANGON - Five people killed in an explosion in Myanmar this week, including an ousted lawmaker, had been building a bomb, media controlled by the military junta said on Wednesday (May 5). Since the military seized power and ousted an elected government led by Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi on Feb 1, Myanmar has seen an increasing number of small blasts in cities and towns, some targeting government offices and military facilities. There have been no claims of responsibility. The Global New Light of Myanmar newspaper said security forces had searched the scene of the Monday afternoon blast in the central Bago area and found wire, batteries and a damaged phone and phone parts. The newspaper said the explosion of the "home-made mine" killed four men on the spot including an ousted lawyer maker from Ms Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) party while another man died of his injuries in hospital. A spokesman for the NLD was not available for comment. Ms Suu Kyi, 75, has ... » Learn More about Myanmar state media says 5 killed in blast were building a bomb
Protesters march during a demonstration against the military coup in Hpakant in Myanmar's Kachin state. (AFP PHOTO / KACHINWAVES) Myanmar's National Unity Government, set up by opponents of army rule, said on Wednesday it had formed a "people's defence force" to protect its supporters from military attacks and violence instigated by the junta. Since the military seized power and ousted an elected government led by Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi on Feb 1 there have been daily protests and a surge of violence with security forces killing hundreds of civilians. The National Unity Government said in a statement the new force was a precursor to a Federal Union Army and that it had a responsibility to "make effective reforms in the security sector in order to terminate the 70-year long civil war". It also said it has a responsibility to deal with "the military attacks and violence from state administration council on the people”. The unity government, established last month by an ... » Learn More about Myanmar’s anti-junta unity government says forms defence force
