The annual Sundown Festival was back on the 16 November 2013 at Marina Promenade for the fifth time, and this year’s edition of Sundown Festival is a truly Asian music festival for all Asian lovers . The Sundown Festival showcased a mixture of rock and pop Asian music acts hailing from 8 different countries.

MasterChef Australia Season 5 brings those who have passion and talents from their kitchen at home to the MasterChef kitchen. And now, MasterChef Australia Season 5 is showing on Lifetime Channel on Starhub CH514. I was invited by Lifetime Channel to meet up Amina El Shafei, one of the most-liked contestants in MasterChef Australia Season 4.

Her parents brought the old family recipes and techniques to the table. At 17, Amina decided to honor her Muslim faith by wearing the…
