At any one point of time, you're likely to find a member of the Buro 24/7 Singapore editorial team travelling in the name of work. Whether it's editor-in-chief Norman Tan and fashion editor Dora Aljoofri reporting live from Paris Fashion Week, or lifestyle editor Denise Kok embarking on a whistle-stop tour through Italy, the team's constantly on the go. Naturally, we don't leave the country without packing our travel essentials with us. To venture into a foreign land is to open yourself to uncertainty, but amidst all the chaos, we return to a few constants that always rise to the occasion. With the launch of Club21Global.com, stocking up on our travel essentials has never been easier. Below, our top picks from the site.
Renée Batchelor | Beauty editor (@renee_buro247)
Why: "For frequent travellers, a passport case is a necessary shield for your precious document. I love this one from Mulberry as it's sleek and simple, but the cognac colour and natural pebbled leather looks like it can take a good beating — a must for any frequent-use item. Other details that work for me: The convenient button closure, and slots for credit cards and different currency notes. A passport case that can double as a mini wallet when you're out and about is a bonus."
Adibah Isa | Culture editor (@adibah.isa)
Her pick: Louis Vuitton Travel Book: Edinburgh
Why: "I love Louis Vuitton's alternative take on a travel guide book. Not only will it make an excellent coffee table accessory at home, it's a good read to leaf through when I'm back home and in the mood to reminisce. That is, if I ever go to Edinburgh one day. Land of sexy Scottish accents, here I come!"
Norman Tan | Editor-in-chief (@musingmutley)
His pick: Master & Dynamic MW60 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones
Why: "Lambskin for that oh-so-soft leather touch, wireless for unbridled movement, and over ear design to block out all the haters. By haters I really just mean the hecklers at work who just don't get why I wear trench coats on rainy Singapore days. P.S. Headphones also looks great with said trench coat."
Andrea Sim | Fashion writer (@andreasimjz)
Her pick: Papaw Ointment
Why: "Small enough that it practically takes up zero space in a dopp kit, it's one of those things you'll kick yourself for not bringing when travelling — just like I did during #BuroInBali after getting bitten by the beach. As one of the team members had the good sense to bring it along, itchiness and redness from the insect bites dissipated minutes after application. Lifesaver."
Denise Kok | Lifestyle editor (@denise.kok)
Her pick: Como Shambhala Invigorate Travel Candle
Why: "Lighting up this candle takes me straight back to my time at COMO The Treasury, where bath time meant a good, languid soak in bath salts scented with geranium, eucalyptus, lavander, and peppermint. It's COMO Hotels & Resorts' olfactory calling card like no other, and this soy wax-based travel candle is perfect for turning any sterile hotel room into a spa-like cocoon. For some reason, this potent scent cocktail seems to help with taking the edge off jet lag, too."
