When something is really dirty and disgusting, it can be incredibly satisfying to watch it get cleaned and return to its proper state. Brandon Anderson, who helps professional cleaners find clients, recently showed off a video of someone doing just this to a filthy carpet. However, viewers who saw the clip on TikTok were horrified - as they initially just assumed that the carpet was a chic dark grey colour. But as the expert went at the fabric with a steam cleaner, the carpet can be seen to completely transform back to its original shade. And it wasn't meant to be grey at all - it was in fact beige. The carpet had so much dirt and grime in it that it had darkened over time due to lack of care. Thousands of people have watched the clip, mesmerised by the cleaning process. One person replied: "But HOW?!" Another said: "This is why I HATE carpet."

Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal have turned producers for a coming of age story titled, Girls Will Be Girls. The couple who collaborated for Fukrey as actors, will be launching director Shuchi Talati along with their banner Pushing Buttons Studios. Set in an elite boarding school in a small Himalayan hill town, the story is about 16-year-old Mira, whose sexy, rebellious coming-of-age is hijacked by her mother who never got to 'come-of-age'. Mother and daughter grow up together through the course of the script and their fraught, but ultimately loving relationship is the beating heart of the film. Praising the director, Richa called the film "relatable, often cruel but never hopeless or nihilistic". Girls Will Be Girls follows a mother-daughter duo which has been "under-explored in Indian and world cinema," said Richa. "It's honest awkwardness will make you chuckle, not weep. It's full of relatable, lived-in episodes that one finds oddly satisfying - like … [Read more...] about Richa Chadha & Ali Fazal Turn Producers, Announce First Project Girls Will Be Girls
You've probably eaten your share of charcoal-infused croissants, burgers, ice cream and waffles over the years. These black foods were impossible to miss back when almost every hipster cafe, restaurant, ice cream outlet and even fast food chain had a charcoal-dyed food or beverage on the menu - some of which you can still find today. For instance, Treasures By Imperial Treasure still does a charcoal liu sha bao for dim sum - a dark grey bao with gold-painted stripes filled with salted egg yolk lava. The Pipe District's menu has a dark horse too - charcoal fish and chips made with salmon or dory in a deep-fried, pitch-black batter. For dessert, there is the charcoal vanilla soft-serve swirl from The Cold Pantry. Even drinks have turned to the dark side. HIC Juice, which delivers cold-pressed fruit and vegetable juice concoctions, has a coconut water and charcoal drink called cococharcoal. At some cafes, you can order a charcoal latte or charcoal lemonade without getting a … [Read more...] about Charcoal foods are all the rage – but are they bad for you?
It’s a Fancy Vivid Pink diamond. It weighs 18.96 carats. It has a name: The Pink Legacy. And no, that's not in reference to a girlie bar. Although, come to think of it, many of the top-grade, rosy-hued diamonds have somewhat louche monikers: The Pink Promise. The Sweet Josephine. Which makes you wonder if the industry is run by lonesome men. But in all seriousness, the world of coloured diamonds – especially pink diamonds – is big business, and increasingly so. The Pink Legacy is expected to fetch between US$30 million and US$50 million (S$41.3 million to S$68.8 million) at Christie's Magnificent Jewels sale in Geneva next week. READ: The Pink Legacy sells for US$50 million in Geneva And that’s not even broaching the record price. In April 2017, The Pink Star, a massive 59.60-carat rock, sold for US$71.2 million at a Sotheby’s sale in Hong Kong, becoming the most expensive gem to ever be auctioned. In Nov 2017, The Pink Promise sold for a lower absolute price at … [Read more...] about A pink diamond for S$69 million? Here’s why the stone is so valuable
