We visit the Raffles Hotel Singapore and learn about their two-years restoration and the refreshed recipe for the Singapore Sling, their iconic gin-based cocktail that still draws in the big crowds a century on from its creation by bartender Ngiam Tong Boon in 1915.  We talk with local microdistillery Compendium about their amazing gins, Rojak Gin and Chendol Gin, which capture the flavours of Singapore in a bottle. And we discuss artistry with one of Singapore’s most beloved entertainers, Hossan Leong  
The Rule of Three Exists in Everything: think of comedy, photography, showbusiness. It also applies in the world of coffee, which has experienced what is accepted as The Three Waves. In Singapore, the Three Rules come with a twist: Kopi.  We talk with 5 artisanal coffee cafes - Nylon Coffee Roasters, PPP Coffee, Two Degrees North Coffee Company, Mavrx Coffee Bar and Coffee Break at Amoy Street. We discuss the beans, the brew and the business of delivering coffee with a focus on traceability, farm, process, roasting and latte foam. Grab a cup of Joe and go on w journey with us to experience the world of caffeine, Singapore-style!

“The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” is a pangram, a sentence with all 26 letters of the alphabet. Font sellers love this sentence since it showcases all 26 letters in one go. This is a podcast, so how things look don’t matter as much as how things sound, and we became curious about the Singapore accent for English. We got some of the best voice talents to read that sentence out loud – one phrase, 20 voices.  In this episode, we use the monomyth template, commonly known as “A Hero’s Journey” Act 1 – I Get No Respect: Singapore English in the mid-90s was a local use-only accent for English Act 2 – The Mentor: we sit down with Assoc Prof Tan Ying Ying, who works on Linguistics and Multilingual Studies at Nanyang Technological University and talk about the wonderfully unique accent here in Singapore.  Act 3 – Nativeness: Lim Yu Beng helps us hear the subtle differences in the range of local Singaporean accents Act 4 – The Prodigal Son. Or Bastard Son: we go Singlish, with Naomi Yeo demonstrating the local hybrid of English with Malay, Indian and Chinese Dialects Act 5 – The Triumphant Return: Singapore undergoes a huge makeover, which turns Singapore English into a regional superstar. Robert Gaxiola, a superstar creative director who has worked on pan-Asian campaigns talks accents for Pan-Asian campaigns This is a fun one!
