3673  Image Zone / Amazing, Breathtaking, Cute, etc. / Infinity Pool at Marina Bay Sands Hotel : Singapore on: July 13, 2010, 07:03:31 PM
New hotel in Singapore ... Marina Bay Sands

Don't go off the VERY deep end... Infinity pool 55 STOREYS above ground opens in Singapore in dazzling new £4bn resort
If you fancy a dip in this pool, you'll need a head for heights - it's 55 storeys up.

But swimming to the edge won't be quite as risky as it looks. While the water in the infinity pool seems to end in a sheer drop, it actually spills into a catchment area where it is pumped back into the main pool. At three times the length of an Olympic pool and 650ft up, it is the largest outdoor pool in the world at that height.

It features in the impressive, boat-shaped 'SkyPark' perched atop the three towers that make up the world's most expensive hotel, the £4billion Marina Bay Sands development in Singapore .

Picture 3.

The view over the side: An artist's impression shows the Skypark that tops the Marina Bay Sands hotel towers, including the infinity pool .

The hotel, which has 2,560 rooms costing from £350 a night, was officially opened yesterday with a concert by Diana Ross.

The Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi , estimated to have cost £2billion when it opened in 2004, was previously the world's most expensive hotel.

But with its indoor canal, opulent art, casino, outdoor plaza, convention centre, theatre, crystal pavilion and museum shaped like a lotus flower, the Marina Bay Sands has taken its crown

3674  The Lounge / The Astro Section / What's your boss's sign? on: July 12, 2010, 12:52:39 PM
What's your boss's sign?

Breaking News - Bosses are human too! Bosses across the world have protested and would like their employees to know they're human and have personalities too - the Boss Personality!

Ok, bad joke! But how do you figure out what your boss wants from you? You can actually tell a lot from their zodiac signs. If your boss is

1. Aries

They are hard-working and expect the same from you. They do not encourage gossip and expect quick results. Self-motivation impresses them.

2. Taurus

They expect employees to be disciplined and very professional. They expect perfection. They may however be wary of new ideas and don't like being told what to do!

3. Gemini

They enjoy flexibility and expect super-quick results. Sudden changes of plans are normal!

4. Cancer 

They are shy and so may appear unapproachable. But they're actually friendly, patient with staff and appreciate compliments from employees.

5. Leo

They love being flattered so pile on the maska! They expect loyalty, hard work and want employees to work as long and as hard as them. If you can put up with their overbearing nature, expect a generous boss!

6. Virgo

They're intelligent and value intelligent staff. They expect an organised, businesslike, regulated work environment.

7. Libra

They like being liked and so will always encourage your ideas and feedback. However, they always expect good manners, irrespective of how close you are.

8. Scorpio

They demand hardworking, perfectionist employees and put a lot of pressure on employees. Don't expect to get too close to this boss.

9. Sagittarius

They are enthusiastic and like their employees to have a cheerful and happy attitude at work.

10. Capricorn

They like rules and like you to stick to them. They don't appreciate over-friendliness and will probably prefer it if you dress conservatively.

11. Aquarius

They are unpredictable and can interrupt one assignment, to give you something else to do. They do not usually openly compliment. They are unorthodox and do not care about your personal life.

12. Pisces

They are sympathetic and appreciate loyalty and a sense of duty in employees. While they may not be dependable, they depend on you to get the work done.

3675  The Lounge / The Astro Section / Cyber dating and sun signs! on: July 12, 2010, 12:39:24 PM

Cyber dating and sun signs!

If you are single, you will know how difficult it is to meet new people. Thatís why cyber dating is such a rage! Itís so anonymous; you donít have to worry about the perfect outfit for a first date, initial awkwardness, the uneasiness of first-time sex etc, etc, etc! With the internet, itís all so comfortable but itís risky too.

Youíve probably heard this before but most of the time people lie on their online dating profiles! You canít blame them given the lot of unscrupulous people who steal personal details for a variety of reasons. So what do you do if you think a potential online date isnít forthcoming with his details? Check his sun sign!

Certain sun signs are good for you while others can be your worst enemies. With astrology, a guyís sun sign can reveal how good he will be at online dating and may be even a long distance relationship!

Aries - Heís super impatient but utterly loving! Donít let this guy go as heís great in bed and dating, but wonít commit to you unless you relocate somewhere closer to him.

Taurus - They hate online dating and cyber sex is a strict no-no.

Gemini Ė The Gemini guy is really adaptable and committed, but with a short attention span! If you donít catch their attention while dating online theyíll get bored. The same goes for cyber sex!

Cancer Ė Cancerian men love online dating and if they get into a long-distance relationship, they will stay totally committed to you.

Leo - Leos love Internet dating and long distance relationships with lots of cyber sex. So be ready for some steamy online action if you want to take things forward with him.

Virgo Ė Virgos are adventurous and loving. They are relentless when it comes to making moves. Of course, they will try any trick in the book to have lots of naughty cyber sex.

Libra - Libras will relocate to be near you and are great to have a relationship with online.

Scorpio - Scorpios want love and they will try anything to do just that. Beware though. They can be a little obsessive too. So you might just land up with a stalker if you are not careful.

Sagittarius Ė As a rule, they take time to fall in love. So imagine when they have so many choices in the cyber world. Itís just going to take him longer than ever to commit.

Capricorn Ė They are serious people who want a serious relationship. But they do not have too much patience. So if you are not sure about relocating to where he is, you can forget the relationship altogether.

Aquarius - They love internet dating and are great with internet sex too. But donít worry; you wonít have to rush into anything. Aquarians can be quite patient. They are a great sun sign to date. And they are honest too!

Pisces - Pisceans are fantasy lovers. They are so good at cyber sex that for them it can be addictive! So be a little careful!

Predict menopause, reveals study

A recent study reveals that in the future doctors could use a blood test to predict decades in advance when women will go into menopause. Experts said that the preliminary study will prove to be of great help to women while deciding when they want to have children.
A fertility expert who is not involved in the research told AP, "This is not something we could start rolling out tomorrow, but if it really does work, it could be immensely useful to young women who are making choices about whether to work or have a family."

While the test does not predict when women will lose their fertility -usually about a decade before menopause, but it will help doctors know when women will go into menopause, therefore enabling them to calculate roughly when they will run out of eggs.

Scientists say the test could be especially helpful in identifying women who might go into menopause early and hence could plan childbearing accordingly.

3677  The Lounge / Fashion & Lifestyle / Make-up rules for office on: July 12, 2010, 12:21:23 PM
Make-up rules for office

Anupriya and Naina are twins who have just started working. Anupriya is a copywriter at an advertising agency while Naina is an investment banker.

Because of the nature of their jobs, they step out of the house every day looking completely different. "Naina always wears formal clothes. Jeans are what everybody in my team wears," says Anupriya.

Poonam Vakil, a make-up artist, says dressing right is not enough. You have to make sure your make-up complements your image and office atmosphere. Here's what she suggests:

Casual chica

If you have a back-end job in the media, casual is probably the dress code at office. Some tips that would add some spunk to a casual you:

A media job usually means long hours. Many people in these jobs have dark circles under their eyes. Your make-up should conceal this," says Vakil. After applying moisturiser, use a translucent powder to hide your dark circles, suggests Vakil.

Next comes eyeliner and mascara. "Don't wear too much of this if you don't want to look too dolled up. Use a plain gloss or nude colours on your lips so that you don't look too loud," she says.

Vakil says you don't have to use nail paint if your office atmosphere is casual. "But make sure they are neat. They should not be chipped. Use a buffer to smoothen and shine your nails," she says.

Formal faÁade
Women who meet clients on a regular basis are expected to dress formally in suits or saris to make the right impression. Start with a moisturiser, says Vakil.

Again, make-up should not be too loud but needs to be more defined," she explains. Here's what you do for an impressive formal you:

Vakil recommends a light foundation. "Women who have an oily skin should use a liquid foundation while those with normal or dry skin can use a powder-based foundation," she says.

According to Vakil, your lip and nail colour should also be more obvious. "However, stick to light colours - pinks, browns, or light purples. French manicures look elegant. Avoid any kind of nail art," she says.

The same rules apply to make-up for office parties. "But you can enhance your make-up a little since most parties are in the evening," adds Vakil.

You can slap on some eye shadow and a light blush. A highlighter on your cheekbones, jaw and collarbones will make your face look chiseled," she explains.

Vakil's last piece of advice is that you should always apply moisturiser before your make-up. "This will protect the skin. If you have oily skin, only use a water-based moisturiser. Oil-based moisturisers are only for people with dry skin. Make sure your moisturiser has a minimum SPF of 25," she concludes.

You snooze, you lose

Getting up and out of bed the moment your alarm goes off will definitely make you feel better. Don't groan and moan. There are several very good reasons why you shouldn't hit the snooze button but wake up as soon as your alarm goes off!

Metabolism problem

When you oversleep, your body does not get into its right rhythm. You have kept it starving for a longer period of time and this affects the pace of your metabolism.
Eventually, this makes you a few inches broader.


Oversleeping makes you feel lethargic since your metabolism is still working on the night mode. Your body takes longer to kick start its systems and is unable to function normally. If you really want to sleep a little longer, don't go over thirty minutes.

Loss of productive time

Experts consider early morning hours to be the most productive hours of the day since your mind is fresh. Even if this is not true in your case, you will end up losing a lot of time in the day.

You will have to stay up late or finish things in a hurry.


If you have overslept, you will find it hard to concentrate for a long time unless you start exercising. Again, since your metabolism cannot take off, your brain will feel starved. This will make it difficult for you to shake it into working.


The spinal fluid moves to the brain when you oversleep. This condition, if persists for long can cause severe headaches and even lead to blindness!

Next time you want to hit the snooze button, think of all the harm you are doing to your body.

Amazing but True - A 17-year-old baby!

Mystery of ageing

American scientists are keenly studying the DNA of a 17-year-old girl who still has the body and behaviour of a baby, hoping to gain new insights into the mysteries of ageing. At 16lb in weight and just 30in tall, Brooke Greenberg is still the size of a one-year-old

Defects in the genes?

According to a preliminary study of her DNA, her failure to grow could be linked to defects in the genes that make the rest of humanity grow old. If confirmed, the research could give scientists a fresh understanding of ageing and even suggest new therapies for diseases linked to old age

'Unique opportunity'

"We think that Brooke's condition presents us with a unique opportunity to understand the process of ageing," said Richard Walker, a professor at the University of South Florida School of Medicine, who is leading the research team.

Frozen in time

"We think that she has a mutation in the genes that control her ageing and development so that she appears to have been frozen in time

 Controlling them

"If we can compare her genome to the normal version then we might be able to find those genes and see exactly what they do and how to control them
