Many people visit gardens for peace and tranquillity as much as for ideas and education; Pear Tree Cottage offers both. The three-quarter-acre garden is on sloping ground around the fine Grade II traditional black and white cottage (not open). During the afternoon you can admire the striking planting – such as hydrangeas and small-flowered clematis – the quirky ornamental details (including a shed good enough to be runner-up as national “Shed of the Year”), and the views out across orchards to Abberley clock tower. Later, as the twilight appears, you can relax, look out for bats or listen for owls while the garden becomes illuminated with subtle lighting and candles.

SINGAPORE — I was informed by a fellow food writer that a significant menu change was afoot at LeVeL33. Apparently, these days, a 'menu change' also refers to an outright interior-ripping, kitchen-remodelling effort that closed the restaurant for a good five weeks. Naturally, I am excited. My last visit here was a good six months ago, and then, the space felt rather, you know, dated. Like the wife of an Indonesian tycoon, still insisting on a massive blowout for a quick visit to Hermès.

SINGAPORE — These individuals get access to the latest beauty launches, cosmetic science breakthroughs and top beauty experts. New beauty products dropped on their laps—every day, and they could, very well, go through a couple years without shopping for beauty stuff.
