Kusu Island, Singapore

4 must see Singapore Islands

Have you ever thought of basking in the crystal clear blue waters without catching a flight?

Well if you ask me how it is possible in Singapore, then I would like to list down 4 unmissable Singapore islands that are worth the exploration.

The Southern islands of Singapore are the lesser known islands, but their beaches are exotic and resonate well with the tropical vibes and offer much more you can think of.

#St. Johns Island

St. Johns Island which is easily accessible by the Island cruise, Singapore.  It is located approximately 6.5 km to the south of the main island of Singapore

A regular ferry service, provided by Singapore Island Cruise, serves Kusu and St John’s Island on a fixed schedule from Marina South Pier.

“Get back to nature, Singapore doesn’t have any natural beaches, so these islands are the perfect gateway to those weekend breaks”.

Book your next Island break here:


The Lazarus island is linked to St. Johns Island by a little-paved bridge, when there are high tides this paved way sinks underneath the water. The Southern islands are untouched commercially, so it’s highly recommended to carry your own food and drinks. From Lazarus island, you can walk to another island which is Palau Seringat to explore a relatively more unexplored island in this region.

The beaches give the feel as if you’re on the Indonesian islands.

#Kusu Island

The legend behind the island says that a magical tortoise turned itself into an island to save two shipwrecked sailors – a Malay and a Chinese.

At the top of the rugged hillock on Kusu Island stands three kramats (holy shrines of Malay saints) to commemorate a pious man (Syed Abdul Rahman), his mother (Nenek Ghalib) and sister (Puteri Fatimah) who lived in the 19th century.

“Travel tip: Book your own private yacht and venture into these untouched islands”.

#Palau Ubin

Pulau Ubin is an island off eastern Singapore and often considered the last ‘kampung’ (village) in Singapore. This island takes you back to the 1960’s era.

Located just 15 mins away by a short boat ride from the mainland, offers the flora and fauna of a rich marine life.

“Exploration Tip: Hire a bicycle for SGD2  to explore the otherwise huge island, perfect for a day trip, rustic roads under swaying coconut palms”.

#Sisters Island

Friday Dress Code | Style Check’17

Friday Dress Code

Guide to Casual Friday Dress Code:

Thank God it’s Friday!

Indeed the 9-5 schedule looks bearable when it comes to Friday, so what’s your Winter Friday Dress Code? If you have always been a  denim person then probably you’re running out of ideas for the Friday look! People are eschewing casual wardrobes and dressing more stylishly on the last working day of the week.

When Friday comes around the dress standards are more relaxed and you can experiment with the casual and the corporate looks.

If you ask me, I prefer to keep the denim away from my work wardrobe and prefer to exploit them over the weekends.


So, here it is my guide to a Winter Friday Dressing:

Friday Dress Code

A long sleeved bodycon dress, which I styled in different ways is my Friday staple outfit. I love dresses and probably this made me experiment this executive style look.

This smart casual allows me to look comfortable keeping in mind the Weekend mood. Friday’s are the most relaxed days of the week before I think what I am grabbing for breakfast, I wouldn’t like to hunt around my wardrobe thinking what to wear.

Looking effortlessly dressed this Long Sleeved Bodycon dress from Cotton On keep up with my style quotient.

“Dressing tip: Style a dress of your choice with a contrast scarf or the Humble Denim Jacket, not to forget to pair it with a pair of Boots or shoes of similar colour”

I love to add a pop of colour to my Corporate look, hence the red lipstick does the needful, accessories are a great way to add colours to your overall look too!

Experimenting with different looks on a Friday makes you look less boring among your office colleagues, well everyone loves to see well-dressed people around them. That’s the 1st thing everyone notices even before you utter a word to anyone.

” Dressing tip: Always wear whatever you’re comfortable in, don’t be afraid to infuse a bit of your personality in whatever you wear or flaunt”

So, whats your favourite Friday Dress code?
