RESTAURANT Restaurants are growing in popularity, not just for couples who want to avoid the ever-rising prices of hotel banquets, but also for those who want something different for their weddings. With restaurants, you get to choose from a range of cuisines and themed decorations, from the elegant and understated to loud and exotic. One thing to take note is some restaurants might not host weddings very often, so you might need to be a little more hands-on in communicating your needs and ensuring that the necessary equipment and arrangements are prepared by the staff. According to the same MoneySmart article, restaurants in Singapore may charge between $501 to $1,099 for a wedding banquet. ALTERNATIVE VENUES Anything that isn't a hotel or restaurant qualifies as an alternative venue. This can be country clubs, community centres, chalets, void decks, outdoor gardens, a yacht, or any space that you can think of. The good thing about using alternative venues is that it will likely be a … [Read more...] about Here’s how much you need for a wedding in Singapore

Cha-Cha: For federal or selfish politics? President Rody Duterte’s selection of two Speakers was not only to end squabbling among his political pals. It is seen also to seal Congress’ rewrite of the Constitution to his liking. No permanent friends in politics, only permanent interests. Duterte wants federalized government. For some allies, federalism equals participative democracy equals progress. The second half of his term is his last chance for a shift. The House of Reps supermajority easily can hand him the three-fourths vote required to alter the 1987 Charter. But congressmen have vested interests. They will go federal only under certain conditions. That’s tested. The past House rushed in late 2018 a charter for selfish ends and, only incidentally, a federal switch. Shamelessly deleted were present term limits and political-dynasty ban. Inserted was a legislative power to bloat self-allocations; lessened was the number of Supreme … [Read more...] about Cha-Cha: For federal or selfish politics?
Pressure off as Osaka hopes for better Wimbledon fortune (Agence France-Presse) - June 27, 2019 - 9:28am LONDON – With the burden of being world number one lifted, Naomi Osaka will set her sights on Wimbledon, buoyed by the support of Roger Federer and praying for a decent draw this year. The 21-year-old Japanese star saw her hopes of a third consecutive Grand Slam title end in a dispiriting third round exit at Roland Garros. She admitted that loss to Katerina Siniakova, ranked 42 at the time, was "the best thing that could have happened" for a player so uncomfortable in the spotlight. Since then, she has lost her top ranking and will head into Wimbledon next week seeded at number two. Osaka could not be more thrilled. "During my entire clay season, it kind of mattered and it showed because I was kind of stressed out the entire time," she said when asked about the intense scrutiny which came with being the world's top … [Read more...] about Pressure off as Osaka hopes for better Wimbledon fortune

Many factors could benefit our sleep quality. But apart from a mattress, lights and sheets, pillows are often underestimated. Sleeping with the wrong pillow may lead to neck and back pain in the morning. CNet reported that to find the perfect and fitting pillow, it is important to know your sleeping position. If you sleep on your stomach, opt for a thin pillow or even none at all. Since this posture stresses your lower back, the National Sleep Foundation recommends sleeping on the side and using a comfortable body pillow. All side sleepers should use a firm pillow with an extra-wide gusset as it adds thickness. This way, the distance between shoulder and ear is filled and provides support for head and neck. A pillow between the knees can also be used for better spine alignment.
