Following a sold out inaugural edition in 2010, Whisky Live returns for seconds in Singapore with another cast of the world’s best whiskies. Organized by purveyors of fine spirits La Maison du Whisky, and held at the swanky One On The Bund, Whisky Live is a celebration of the “Water of Life” and everything it inspires.

Haruki Murakami is that rare author who has achieved both acclaim and popularity within his lifetime. He’s most certainly at the top of the heap, or above and beyond it, when it comes to authors you must read in order to be taken seriously by literary types. For those who don’t read, yet want to carry the clout that comes with knowing Murakami, this is your moment. It’s 1967, and a young college student, Watanabe (Kenichi Matsuyama), leaves Kobe for Tokyo after his best friend’s suicide.

We all remember, with varying degrees of horror, the day we discovered that Santa Claus didn’t exist. Hop may help the Easter Bunny cement its place on that same list of traumatic realizations that come with the end of childhood, but it certainly offers a bit of fun.
