Hotel Indigo Singapore Katong is one of Singapore’s Peranakan-themed hotels. Filled with old-school fixtures and splashes of bright colours, this hotel would make any Peranakan feel right at home. Infusing Singapore culture and history into its hotel, Hotel Indigo has its walls decked out with drawings of old school Singapore.

What’s a better way to spend the weekend than to catchup on some R&R!? Kimberley Yong, one of our ambassadors, spent her weekend doing just that! She got a chance to laze by Hotel Indigo’s infinity pool which offers breathtaking views!

If you’re looking for a little R&R without breaking the bank or if you’re looking to spend a weekend time-travelling to Singapore’s yesteryear Hotel Indigo is the place to be!

Against The Current brought the house down when they performed their debut album, In Our Bones, at SCAPE* Ground Theatre 2 weeks ago (8 Sept)! If you’re loved the musical stylings of Paramore and Hey Monday, Against The Current might just be your new favourite band. Formed by  Chrissy Costanza,Dan Gow and Will Ferri, Agains The Current adds their own unique twist to the genre of pop, punk and rock!

3 of our ambassadors; Vanessa Ho, Anissa Tan and Dacia Kee were all there to catch Against The Current LIVE! Sadly, if you missed out on this spectacular performance, you’re pretty much stuck to listening to them on Spotify. But don’t let that get you down! They’re coming back to SCAPE* pretty soon!
