The sweet, sweet lineup
In typical HoneyTalks fashion, we’ve carefully curated a lineup of individuals with insightful journeys to share. Expect to see Winnie Ong of Young Hungry Free, an enterprising spirit who founded this fashion commerce at just 19; Amy Bell of The Meat Club, who juggles being a mother of two and managing this online butcher specialising in quality cuts; and Daniel O’Connor of Ice Cream Sundays, a fun-lover who takes charge of organising this popular party series.
Meet our speakers:
Winnie Ong, founder and creative director of Young Hungry Free
Winnie was just 19 when she decided to try her hand at running her own online fashion store, created out of a desire to provide something new to the blogshopping market. Since then, Young Hungry Free has grown from a small blogshop by a resourceful teen, to one of the leading ecommerce sites that countless locals get their latest buys from. Through the years, we’ve seen the brand put out different collections that range from the subtly edgy to the feminine and demure – and we can’t wait to see what else YHF has up their sleeve.
Amy Bell, co-founder of The Meat Club
Who would’ve thought this former lawyer would dip her toes in the meat supplying business? But life works in unexpected ways, and this mother of two had a passion for ensuring that everyone in Singapore had access to good quality yet affordable products. And so The Meat Club was born, sourcing proteins from Australia and sending them to local households through the brand’s ‘click and forget’ delivery model, providing premium cuts to your doorstep without the hassle (which, by the way, is life-changing for anyone who wants to save time on grocery shopping).
Daniel O’Connor, co-founder and lead organiser of Ice Cream Sundays
We all know Ice Cream Sundays as being synonymous with laid-back exploits with booze, ice cream, and funky basslines. But did you know that this local party collective originally began as a non-profit project? A desire to unlock unique outdoor spaces led Daniel and his friends to build this community. 24 iterations and three years later, the crew has taken over a series of iconic outdoor venues around Singapore, including the National Gallery, Gillman Barracks, DECK, Golden Mile Tower and, most recently, Haw Par Villa. Beyond music, ICS has also evolved into a collaborative platform to showcase the talents of Singapore-based creatives.
Wine, bites, and a meaningful night
Join us at The Hive’s newest and largest location at Carpenter Street – we’re talking five floors of work desks, meeting rooms, and office suites!

You’ll be welcomed with a glass of red or white, courtesy of the wine-loving crew from Vinomofo. Feeling peckish? We’ve also invited the good folk from Well Dressed Salad Bar & Cafe to bring out a spread of undeniably tasty meatless creations.
