USE­FUL STUFF

The Peak (Singapore) - - Editor’s Note -

Ever cu­ri­ous about how road war­riors cope with the stresses of fre­quent travel, I asked this month’s cover per­son­al­i­ties, Ter­ence and Nel­son Loh, for their in­put. On av­er­age, the cousins who helm Novena Global Life­care Group touch down in three cities a week, cov­er­ing Asia and Europe. What they both agree on is that they use fa­cial masks on fl ights – the only pas­sen­gers in the cabin to do so. Ter­ence used to care about be­ing judged, slap­ping on the mask only dur­ing take- off and land­ing when fel­low pas­sen­gers were belted in – but now good skin takes prece­dent. And why not? Bet­ter to im­press a lot, than not make one iota of dif­fer­ence to a hand­ful.

As far as tips go, this one ranks up there with mois­tur­is­ing your feet and cladding them in plane socks for the du­ra­tion of the fl ight. I’ve never done it my­self, but like books on a shelf, it’s com­fort­ing to know such ad­vice is there, col­lected, cu­rated and ready to use.

In this vein, let this is­sue be your cache of use­ful in­for­ma­tion and hacks to take you through the year. In ad­di­tion to sourc­ing James Bond-like mul­ti­func­tional tools, we’ve asked ex­perts in the fields of fash­ion, food and drink, fit­ness and cy­ber­se­cu­rity to weigh in on best prac­tices.

De­pend­ing on your source of in­for­ma­tion, adopt­ing a habit takes any­where from 21 days to eight months. Af­ter speak­ing to data-pro­tec­tion spe­cial­ist Ser­guei Beloussov, I know my res­o­lu­tion for the year, and it’s as sim­ple as al­low­ing au­to­matic up­dates to my se­cu­rity soft­ware. Some­times, it takes an ex­pert to drill in com­mon sense.
