Lifestyle
[caption id="attachment_383" align="alignright" width="300"] So what does this selfie say about me?[/caption] As long as there is a fad out there, there’s sure to be someone who will also research it. And so in Singapore, according to the Daily Mail, researchers from  Nanyang Technological University examined selfies and some 600 volunteers who took them. A questionaire to judge “agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism, and openness” was also filled in by the volunteers. (more…)

Nestled at the rear of the Oyster Box hotel, in a luscious garden, the atmosphere even before you enter the Spa itself is tranquil and relaxing. (more…)
