Let's Talk

Singapore Women's Weekly (Singapore) - - SETTER STYLE - Edi­tor-in-Chief Bar­bara Koh

There’s a quote that goes “Home is where your story be­gins” and it’s true. My old fam­ily home, where I was brought back to as a new­born, and only va­cated a cou­ple of years ago when my Granny passed on, is where my story be­gan. And even now, I find it hard to ven­ture too far from the East. It’s where I feel most com­fort­able: Where I went to school, where my chil­dren go to school, where my favourite food haunts lie, where I hung out with my friends, where I fell in love... As part of our Cel­e­brate Sin­ga­pore is­sue, we de­cided to ask home­grown stars Dick Lee (who’s out with a new movie this month called Won­der Boy), Irene Ang and Belinda Lee about their favourite spots on the Red Dot, and they will­ingly agreed. Se­nior Fea­tures Writer Natalya Molok, who went on a trail with them for “This Is Home, Truly”, page 29, shares, “It showed how proud they were to be from a place that had so much mean­ing and nos­tal­gia, and that shaped them from child­hood into adult­hood.”

It’s hard not to have our hearts swell with pride as we put to­gether this is­sue. We show­case the must-know beauty, fashion and decor brands that are from Sg, and shine the spot­light on tal­ented women, in­clud­ing cover girl Michelle Chong and the nom­i­nees in this year’s Great Women of Our Time Awards. May you be in­spired by all their sto­ries!

Ku­dos to the team for pulling to­gether a spe­cial is­sue to Cel­e­brate Sin­ga­pore. Here they are be­hind the scenes with
