Smart-watch fans search­ing for an al­ter­na­tive to Ap­ple’s of­fer­ings could check out the Sam­sung Gear Sport, which has fea­tures such as NFC (Near Field Com­mu­ni­ca­tion), a heart rate mon­i­tor and au­to­matic ac­tiv­ity de­tec­tion. The watch is also wa­ter-re­sis­tant to 50m, so swim­mers can wear it to track their work­outs. $POA Mu­sic lovers who feel that the noise­can­celling func­tion in most ear­phones com­pro­mises their over­all sound qual­ity might want to try the 1More Dual Driver Ac­tive Noise Can­celling Light­ning In-Ear Head­phones. More sig­nif­i­cant than its long name is the fact that these ear­phones are tuned by Grammy-win­ning sound en­gi­neer Luca Big­nardi, so they might ac­tu­ally im­press scep­ti­cal au­dio­philes. $279 As an en­thu­si­ast, you want what’s best for your car. To merely have it run­ning smoothly is not enough. You want it to be able to per­form at its peak, no mat­ter what driv­ing con­di­tions you face.

That’s why you need to con­sider Mo­tul lu­bri­cants, which are also used by teams that com­pete in Su­per GT and the World En­durance Cham­pi­onship, an even more gru­elling se­ries that in­cludes the pun­ish­ing 24 Hours of Le Mans race.

Driv­ers who reg­u­larly par­tic­i­pate in track days may be in­ter­ested in Mo­tul’s 300V Power en­gine oils, which are spe­cially for­mu­lated to with­stand rac­ing con­di­tions by con­tin­u­ing to pro­vide max­i­mum oil film re­sis­tance at high tem­per­a­tures.

For reg­u­lar mo­torists, Mo­tul’s 8100 X-cess line pro­vides more than ad­e­quate pro­tec­tion, and is es­pe­cially suited to larger-dis­place­ment en­gines. Mo­tul 8100 X-cess is ap­proved by car­mak­ers such as BMW, Porsche, Re­nault and Volk­swa­gen.

Ev­ery pur­chase of five litres of Mo­tul 8100 X-cess or four litres of Mo­tul 300V comes with a free lim­it­ededi­tion EZ-Link card with a stored value of $16.88. Of­fer valid till De­cem­ber 2017 and while stocks last.

Meat lovers who want to sa­ti­ate their large ap­petites could con­sider or­der­ing the Tom­a­hawk Steak (right) at Hil­ton Ho­tel’s Opus Bar & Grill. Be­fore be­ing char­coal­grilled, the meat is wrapped in bour­bon­soaked cloth and aged in a Hi­malayan salt tile cabi­net for three weeks. Weigh­ing be­tween 1 and 1.2kg, it would be best to bring a buddy with an equally big ap­petite with you. AJ Hack­ett Sen­tosa pro­vides thrill-seek­ers with ac­tiv­i­ties such as bungee jumps and ver­ti­cal sky­walks, but you don’t have to be an adrenalin junkie to avail of their kitchen’s cre­ations, which in­clude a va­ri­ety of sand­wiches and pas­tas (left). As part of Siloso Beach’s Thirsty Thurs­day promo, the es­tab­lish­ment will also have Paulaner Brauhaus brews avail­able, too. Thirsty Thurs­day runs from Oct 5 to Dec 28, 2017.
