Annex A: Singapore creative talents featured in Crazy Rich Singapore Week
Chef Malcolm Lee
As chef-owner of the world's only Michelin-starred Peranakan restaurant, Malcolm is constantly looking for ways to both preserve and innovate the flavours of his youth. As a child, he grew up with the smell of spices from his grandmother's traditional Peranakan dishes wafting through his doorway.
When Malcolm realised that life chained to a desk wasn't for him, he turned his lifelong passion for food into a career in the kitchen. Being the first Singaporean recipient of the Miele Guide Culinary Scholarship and graduated from At-Sunrice Global Chef Academy, he worked his way from humble line cook to his current role as chef-owner of Peranakan restaurant Candlenut.
Mixologist Peter Chua
Peter Chua is a creative, experienced and award-winning craft bartender who is known for his speed, hospitality and smile.
He is the Head Barman of Junior, a high concept bar-within-a-bar with a rotating theme that changes several times a year. Peter brings his personal experiences, knowledge and travel inspirations to the programming of each concept, translating this into a unique guest experience.
Peter also has multiple accolades under his belt - he was an Asia-Pacific finalist for the prestigious Diplomatico Rum Tournament, nominated as Singapore's Best Bartender in City Nomads' Readers' Choice Awards in 2015, and one of the Top 6 in the annual Diageo Reserve World Class global finals in 2014.
DJ KoFlow (Wayne Liu)
Singapore's KoFlow (Wayne Liu) is an artist in every sense of the word. Having started off in the world of turntablism, KoFlow has evolved beyond that title into one of Asia's most respected performers.
The 2003 Singapore DMC champion and World DMC finalist has performed with international artists such as Ghostface Killah and Raekwon of the Wu-Tang Clan, NAS, Mariah Carey and Kanye West.
A familiar face in the corporate circuit, KoFlow has collaborated and performed for notable brands like Jaguar, Audi, Adidas, Nike, OBEY, Oakley, MTV, Redbull, Tiger Beer, and Chivas.
He has also performed at festivals and showcases globally. They include Ultra Music Festival, Neon Lights and ZoukOut (Singapore), SXSW (Texas), CMJ Music Marathon (New York), A3C Music Festival & Conference (Atlanta) and Canadian Music Week (Toronto).
Contemporary Artist Jahan Loh
Born in 1976, Jahan Loh is Singapore's leading Pop artist and one of Asia's most successful street artists. His oeuvre revolves around street art and pop iconography and has exhibited internationally in New York, Melbourne, Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Over the last decade, Jahan had successful collaborations with major lifestyle brands in China, Singapore and Taiwan, such as Vans, CASIO, G-SHOCK, Adidas and Puma. In 2016, he completed two site-specific murals for the new Zouk Club at Clarke Quay. Recently, Subcrew presented "STASH x Jahan Outside-In" at Yo'hood, Shanghai – China's premier streetwear fair, where Jahan collaborated with popular New York street legend STASH for a live showcase.
Influenced by graffiti artists from the 1970s and 1980s in New York, coupled with a deep immersion in the international phenomenon of Hollywood sci-fi, comic books and Asian manga and anime culture, Jahan has truly brought Singapore Pop art into the international limelight.

Mixologist Peter Chua's Special Drinks Menu
Kopi Ol' Fashioned
This cocktail was inspired by our little island's unique take on a breakfast staple; coffee. Compared to 3rd Wave coffee where the beans are simply roasted, Kopi O beans are coated with sugar and margarine prior to roasting resulting in a coffee that is sweeter and slightly savory.
Roses Are Pink
Air Bandung or Sirup Bandung lends its flavors to this childhood inspired cocktail. Consisting of evaporated/condensed milk, Bandung syrup (rose flavored syrup), and water, Air Bandung (pronounced ai-yeh bun-dong) is a floral, sweet, creamy and refreshing drink.
A deceptively plain looking leaf that packs a unique nutty and fragrant flavor, the Pandan leaf is extensively used in Singapore and the rest of South East Asia. Its flavors and attributes have garnered multiple uses from being used in cuisines to a natural pest repellent.
Artist Jahan Loh's artwork on display
GARDEN CITY, 2018
By Jahan Loh, Singapore
Garden City is a site-specific mural that showcases iconic landmarks of Singapore, overlaid with text written in Singapore's four national languages – English, Mandarin, Malay and Tamil. Jahan has specifically chosen two colors – White and Blue to mimic traditional Chinese porcelain, where the juxtaposition of colors represents the diversity of cultures and the fusion of tradition and modernity which is unique to Singapore.
DJ KoFlow's set
For three nights only between Aug 9 and 11, DJ KoFlow will be playing at The Highlight Room.
Beyond being a DJ behind the decks in a club, KoFlow is unafraid of pushing the boundaries and is now synonymous with large-scale collaborative performances. From the 80-piece Metropolitan Festival Orchestra to the 70-strong Samba bateria percussion group, KoFlow has made an indelible mark as a turntable instrumentalist.
