This month’s highlights include plenty of electrifying events and scrummy eats!

1. Arteastiq

If boutique tea houses are your thing, you’ll love this dainty yet unique one.

Arteastiq is a teahouse/restaurant/art jam studio tucked away in Mandarin Gallery.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate this beautiful piece of foie gras 😻 This my friends is the best foie gras dish I've had to date and I'm just craving it every day and I wanna go back soon 😭😭 Had this at the famous @arteastiq at Mandarin Gallery as a 3 course meal appetizer 😊 #DiscoverSG

Our ambassadors Cheryl, Diana ,Nicholas, Rachael, Vanessa were treated to a luxurious high tea experience there!

That means a full fancy 3-course meal (normally $48) prepared just for us!

The brunch menu consists of hearty and healthy dishes, while the dinner menu features creative Asian fusion dishes.

For appetisers, the ambassadors had the signature pan seared duck foie gras.

2. Ultra Singapore

Whether or not you got the chance to go to Ultra Singapore, it’s hard to miss the hype that took over all our social media platforms.

We sent a whole bunch of our ambassadors down to join in the fun at the hottest party this year!

Just like last year, the 2-day electronic dance music festival in Singapore was ultra wet, ultra muddy, and ultra amazing!

We partied the day and night away to music by headlining DJs, including Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki, Dash Berlin, Steve Angello, TiΓ«sto, and Don Diablo.

Not to forgot our local acts on the Live stage: homeboy ShiGGa Shay, DJ Duo Rave Republic, and singer-songwriter Jasmine Sokko.

With stunning lights, visuals, sound and special effects, it was easy to stay upbeat and pumped even through the rain.

You know a party is ultra good when it’s hard to go for one set and not have #FOMO from passing up on the others; that’s exactly how we felt about Ultra Singapore’s crazy line-up this year!
