I would like to try to do more on ground charity work and do something to give back to a society that prides in its meritocracy which often overlooks the less fortunate and able.

Charmaine Ho, Executive Editor

I’m really bad with above-surface-level water sports so this is the year I conquer surfing (and fall flat on my face, trying)!

Windy Aulia, Senior Fashion Editor

Blame it on my Leo’s pack mentality, but never have I watched a movie in the cinema by myself; something to try for the new year.

Exercise is the bane of my existence, but of late it’s hard to ignore my increasing waistline (goodbye metabolism!) so I guess it’s time for me to hit the running tracks…

Gracia Phang, Fashion Stylist

Something new I’d like to try in 2018 is: Skydive!

Dana Koh, Lifestyle Editor

Boxing or Muay Thai. I’ve always been a fan of combat sports, but have only tried high-energy martial arts-inspired fitness classes so far. It’s time to make contact.

One new thing I’d like to try this year is to learn the art of cooking Nyonya cuisine! Maybe I’ll start small with something easy like achar.

・・・ ‘I tell tales of Singapore through food’ And indeed, Chef Damian of Folklore is a master storyteller like none other – sharing chapters of Singapore’s history through his food. Each traditional dish is meticulously prepared from scratch, bringing back to life, the heritage of Singapore cuisine through his century-old family recipes. Each dish is a snapshot of Singapore’s society and food culture, reflecting the various races and their traditions – through food that graced his elaborate family dinners, made lovingly by his paternal grandpa, maternal grandma, his mother, and now himself. These are tales that not only fuel your soul, but also your stomach.

My new thing to try this year is core training. The classes at Surfset Fitness Singapore incorporates core-training exercises with the use of surfboards so it makes training for a lean and strong physique look super fun!

This year I’m definitely getting into crystals and stones!

Happy 2018! I hope it has been an empowering time for you as you step into this next phase of life. Last year was a wild ride, full of challenges and overwhelming growth. I spent much of 2017 in severe chronic pain, fighting to keep my head above the water of pain-induced depression. It was difficult to feel myself slow down when it came to being able to create and pursue ALL the things my mind envisioned – my body just was not in the same place as my energetic mind. My stubborn Taurus bull self did NOT want to listen, but it was a clear message for me to shift my focus to healing body and soul, which I truly believe led me to the path I need to be on. It expanded my horizons in a very big way. I am so grateful for the love and support I’ve received in the past 2 years of running Amarisland, even through the times I needed to slow down. 2018 is going to be an enormous year for all of us and I am so excited to share all the incredible things I have been sowing for the good of all, for the past year. It is always my intention to provide you with a magical, authentic, and healing experience and we are gonna take it to the next level this year. May you always know your worth and shine your bright light on every year, not just this one. 💜 With love, Amaris 💜🌈🔮🌈💜

I’ve always wanted to try pilates because everyone who does it look like the ultimate #fitspo. The machines look intimidating but I’m thinking 2018 is the year to bite the bullet!
