Foo Fighters live in Singapore, Bangkok and South Korea

The week started off with a bang, when renowned rock band Foo Fighters announced that they have added Singapore, Thailand and South Korea to their ongoing world tour, after their shows in Osaka and Tokyo, Japan for the Summer Sonic Festival.

After the cancellation of their Singapore concert five years ago, (the announcement was made one week before the concert, stating that it was due to a medical condition of a key band member), fans on this side of the world can once again rejoice with the newly announced venues. Those in Malaysia are especially thrilled in planning for the concert, as they can hit up either one of the concerts in the neighbouring countries.

Tate Wade Bokeh timepiece collection

If you have always had heart for horlogerie, but hadn’t the expenses to cover it, this Kickstarter project might just be the timepiece you have been waiting for. Tate Wade prides itself with the Swiss automatic ETA 2824 movement, one of the most popular movements used by the most luxury Swiss watches, but without the hefty price tag these timepieces carry.

The debut Bokeh collection is available in three styles – stainless steel, Black PVD and Gun metal PVD, all of which carries a dial that is inspired by the lenses of a camera, and a patented crown that is at an unconventional 4 o’clock position.

X-Men: The Gifted series trailer

Although this upcoming X-Men TV series looks nothing like its predecessor, Legion, in terms of aesthetics, (in fact, it looks more like a YA television show The CW network has been churning out), we are looking forward to see what The Gifted has to offer, especially with Bryan Singer on the director’s chair. The series revolves around two families, who went on the run from the government when they found out that their children have mutant abilities. The Gifted will hit FOX some time in September.
