Discovery Awaits Happy New Year! This issue, we introduce you to Renyung Ho. This multi-hyphenate has to be one of the most refreshingly (to borrow a word from the millennial vernacular) “woke” and disarming personalities we have interviewed in a while. The daughter of power couple Ho Kwon Ping and Claire Chiang discusses mindfulness, how she is driving positive transformation in her role at Banyan Tree Holdings, as well as self-awareness, guilt and her own privilege. We feel as proud of this daughter of Singapore as we do one of her sons, Alvin Tan of the National Heritage Board. Fresh from the announcement that our hawker culture has been accepted into Unesco’s Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the man who helped make it happen speak to us about his passion for rediscovering and preserving what’s left of our heritage. Also featured this issue are the very young and dynamic second-generation leaders who are making waves in reviving and pivoting their family-owned heritage businesses. The discovery theme continues with our fashion pages showcasing Cruise 2021 trends and highlights, a stunning jewellery spread on birthstones, a story about the late Parisian jewellery extraordinaire Frédéric Zaavy, an interview with celebrated ballerina Misty Copeland, a feature on swanky properties by the Thames in London, and a report on the latest non-alcoholic spirit fad. We also serve up a proudly patriotic feature on exploring our little island and her best-kept secrets, and possibly spend your SingapoRediscovers vouchers meaningfully.
