Bonnie Wong is the Director of Marketing and Business Development for Creative Eateries, an F&B leader in Singapore
Born and raised in Lion City, Bonnie says she loves that she can leave her house at any time of day or night, “unaccompanied and unafraid.”
To run from the crowds
On weekends, Bonnie goes for late-morning runs at Lower Peirce Reservoir Park or the above-ground Henderson Waves Bridge (pictured). “They’re very peaceful compared to the more popular parks,” she explains.

Her mane man
She swears by antisplurge Tsubaki’s Extra Moist line. “It’s as good as the salon brands I’ve tried and can be purchased from any Watsons store,” she notes.
