When will my reflections show, who I am inside?
There’s no better way to teach your daughters about female empowerment, with the classic tale that many of us grew up with.
Women were expected to prepare for marriage and only men were believed to be capable of serving the Imperial Army. Yet when Mulan’s father was required to serve, she defied those norms and masqueraded as a man, to take the place of her ailing father. Against all odds, Mulan stayed true to herself, remained determined, fearless, and emerged as one of the greatest warriors.

As reported in Yahoo news, the teaser trailer of the live-action Mulan nabbed more than 175 million views globally in its first 24 hours. If you haven’t watched the trailer, check it out below:
Move over, Jurassic Park. We’ve got the Changi Jurassic Mile.
Jurassic Mile is Singapore’s newest and largest permanent outdoor display of life-sized dinosaurs. More than 20 different pre-historic creatures from nine different species stretch over 1-kilometre of the cycling and jogging path.
