WHILE some industries are seeing a gradual recovery as Singapore regains some sense of normalcy during Phase 2, things are far from rosy for commercial art galleries which have seen business plummet by as much as 90 per cent. In tomorrow's BTLifestyle, we look at how art galleries are bracing for the worst as art-buying dwindles in tandem with poor economic sentiment.

On the lighter side, we check out the handiwork of an enthusiastic Dad, who doesn't so much as build dollhouses for his little daughters but designs the entire family home around them. Think bubblegum pink hues and lots of playspace in this whimsical apartment. And with Zoom meetings the new norm, women - and men - are paying more attention to skincare than make-up to achieve glowing, natural skin. Before you succumb to the deluge of products out there, beauty veterans clear up some myths about skincare.

On the food front, take a vicarious trip to Portugal at Tuga, a new eatery that specialises in the country's wine and cuisine.
