When told that a career in the Arts isn’t viable, Jasmine Sokko was not deterred. Instead, it spurred her to want to break the mold. “Sokko is made up of all the anger, sadness, loneliness and pressure of the society in the initial stage,” she says of her moniker. After hopping between different musical projects, she discovered electronic production – and became fascinated by the infinite nature of the medium, where she could layer her vocals with every possible sound. A Maverick of lyf through and through, she harnesses her creativity by being unapologetically weird and true to herself. If given the freedom to do anything, she’d want to make music from Mars – but for now, she hopes to keep creating more music and art that pushes boundaries. ⠀

Brandon Chong (@branstands) is the founder of his own contemporary studio, @instiinctstudios. It all started when the former competitive dancesport dancer fell in love with the practice at a hot yoga class – and he hasn’t looked back. His passion took him to India, where he went for official yoga teacher training. Since then, he’s taught yoga in various yoga communities in Singapore like Lululemon, Manduka, and Every Second Counts.
To Brandon, his job doesn’t ever feel like a job as he’s always connecting with lovely people, friends, and students alike. When things get hectic, he finds time in between meetings to have a swim or do some boxing – “work hard, play hard” is something he believes in. A true Maverick of lyf, he aims to do everything with love from his heart and always remember his core values. #inspiration#maverick#freedom#yoga#igsg#livelyf
Nestled amongst the rolling mountains of Northern Thailand is Lanna Doi Modt, an off-the-grid Muay Thai hill camp run by Andy Thomson, a former gym owner in Scotland. Both Thai and foreign fighters make the long trek up the hill to enjoy nature and Muay Thai, sans the distractions of city life. Now that's devotion.

Is this the real life, or is this just fantasy? Feel like you're on the set of a sci-fi movie at the newly completed #MOCAPE in Shenzhen, China. A surreal vision inside and out, the complex merges two independent institutions: The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), and the Planning Exhibition (PE), which is an exhibition venue. Whether or not you're an architecture buff, this seven-storey work of art is worth a visit.⠀

There are many different ways of telling stories, and Teresa Lim a.k.a @teeteeheehee tells hers with thread, paint, and lots of whimsy and colour. She's known for her beautiful embroidery, but her creations extend to the cutest empowering projects like this barf bag illustration series. Just brilliant.
