Tatlergrams Of The Week: Epic Year-End Vacations

Close Up

January 2, 2018 | BY Jessica Liew

If you’re back at work and nursing some holiday blues, take a break with these snapshots of high society year-end travels to inspire your next travel destination of 2018.

You can always rely on the who’s who of society for a dose of wanderlust all year round, but more so during the New Year holidays. Some vacations are perpetually from Christmas to the New Year: Like Dato’ Seri Farah Khan gallivanting from Havana to Texas, and Juvene Goh and Marcus Teo ticking off sunny Victoria for the snowy peaks of Hokkaido.

The winter season meant ski-slope selfies were aplenty: Ken Lim and Hubert Whoi, Morvin Tan and Tunku Myra Madihah took advantage of the pristine powdery slopes. Warmer climes beckoned to Jenn Low, Michelle Yeoh and Stephanie Chai for a sunny countdown. All in all, these ‘grams look just about the right way to ring in 2018!
