Specialising in niche soy candles, Sally's Room carries a total of 11 comforting scents like peach, jasmine, lavender, and lime coconut. These are available in 180g sizes ($35), in gorgeous holders that you can customise – choose your preferred style of jar holder, scent label, and candle lid colour. Sally's Room has also branched out into diffusers and room sprays, and you can even buy materials to make your own soy candle. But if you prefer guidance, attend one of its candle-making classes and learn to make coffee candles, pressed flower candles, or even gel wax and palm wax candles (intermediate).
The imposing building at 195 Pearl's Hill Terrace used to be the upper barracks of a police station. What was once the centre of surveillance and control (over the crime-ridden alleys of Chinatown), is now a hub of freedom and creativity. There's something poetic about that.
In sanitised and 'straight' Singapore, places like 195 Pearl's Hill Terrace are true gems, and one can easily spend a whole day there exploring the many unique creative workshops and studios, or even the occasional fair. This week, we urge you to clear some time in your calendar to check out something off our list of the best things to do in Pearl's Hill.
