TEXT ELISA CHIA & STEPHANIE YEO SPOTLIGHT Cleanser #goals Cleansing your face thoroughly can be a tedious process, so we’re loving Drunk Elephant’s new Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser with Bamboo Booster (110g). Slather it on dry skin to melt all your makeup, sunscreen and grime, then add water to turn it into a milk that rinses clean. It’s gentle enough to use around the eye, yet strong enough to remove water- resistant formulations. Slaai comes with a 3g Bamboo Booster that you can use once or twice weekly as an exfoliant, too. Buy it at $48 from or at Sephora Ion Orchard. A taste of home If you’re near Great World City, pop by the new Ho Fook Hei Soy Sauce Chicken outlet for comfort food in a casual setting. This new brand by the Joyden Seafood folks serves signature Cantonese dishes, such as its specialty rose wine soy sauce chicken ($19/half or $35/whole), which is brined overnight, then poached in home-aged soya sauce and a special blend of herbs and spices. Other must-haves the YP team likes: the excellent red grouper fish fillet congee ($9.80) and honey-glazed black barbeque pork belly ($13). Find it at #01-141 Great World City. Visit .
