Singapore, 22 August 2014 – Effective 3rd September 2014, Iliyas Ong will oversee the brand direction and day to day editorial management for the Time Out operation in Singapore. Taking the reins from current Editor, Berwin Song, Ong will bring a wealth of creative expertise and publishing experience to the team. Mongoose Publishing welcomes veteran journalist Ong to the company as it further looks to grow the Time Out brand in the Singapore market.

“I am thrilled to be coming on board as Editor of Time Out Singapore and am honored to be a part of such a respected, world renowned brand,” commented Ong.

Launched in March 2007, Time Out Singapore’s website and monthly magazine quickly established themselves as the island’s leading guide to food and drink, shopping and style, and arts and entertainment for English-speaking residents in Singapore.

Nearly a million views a month are registered on, making it a definitive resource for arts, events and entertainment. A vibrant social media following has further kept the brand at the forefront of the conversation about what to do and see in Singapore.

Mongoose Publishing, the current “Media Publishing Company of the Year 2014” as recognized by MPAS, publishes both Esquire Singapore and Time Out Singapore, two titles familiar to Singaporeans for their high quality, independent editorial and world-class design.

Russell Channon, Managing Director for Mongoose Publishing, said, “We are very excited to have Iliyas onboard our team of a-list journalists. The Time Out brand demands an authoritative voice and personality at the forefront and we are confident that Iliyas is just that person.”
