What makes a man? Philips asked both men and women

DId they give the same answers?

In today’s time, what defines masculinity? To celebrate the launch of the new Philips Shaver S9000 Prestige, Philips commissioned a survey that attempts to answer this question. Singapore answered.

The differences in opinion between the sexes aren’t too far off. Women prioritize being a good parent, having emotional intelligence, and being kind as defining factors of masculinity. According to men, being supportive to others, being a good parent, and having emotional intelligence are traits they value.


According to the survey in collaboration with YouGov with 1,025 respondents composed of 502 guys and 523 girls, 49 percent of men still feel pressured to act in a masculine manner and traditional views of men as providers still prevail. Singaporeans are shown to be more progressive, though, in that they are more accepting of women who earn more than men.

One big bottom line, though, is that Singaporeans still look at physical appearance as a strong indicator of masculinity. Philips’ Jinseok Chang makes the connection between this data on healthy perceptions of masculinity and Philips’ new Shaver S9000 Prestige: “Empowered consumers have not only become a significant driver of our growth, but also the inspirational force driving our product innovations.”

The new Philips Shaver S9000 Prestige is a luxurious grooming device which features wireless charging, three different shave modes, and “the world’s closest electric shave with uncompromised skin comfort.” It retails for SG$ 599.

Global Sources: Content Creator Essentials

We found the must-have portable lighting setup for creators

Here at Global Sources we’ve been on the lookout for products that you might be interested in either buying or selling, but in the process we found gadgets, equipment, and accessories that we like. As traveling creators, we’re still in the process of figuring out how to have a more efficient and effective mobile studio that we can carry with us wherever.

Telesin’s egg-shaped charging cases are perfect for our Sony a7s batteries — they’re colourful and handy. They also double as memory card readers and holders. We also found portable LED lights from Number King that makes setting up fuss-free. It has a built-in battery but is slim and small enough to fit in a backpack’s laptop compartment.


With all the traveling we do, taking care of one’s skin is downgraded to the bottom of priorities. An easy solution is a portable humidifier from Remax Life — it’s as small as a pen, and just needs a bottle of water to work its magic.

Last but not the least: a solar-powered backpack that’s surprisingly designed well and is stylish! Having a lot of compartments and extra room is always a plus for creators for our tools and knicknacks.
