7 Ladies’ Night Deals In SG You & Your Gal Pals Need to Know

We have a love-hate relationship with Wednesdays. With it being the third day of the week, Hump Day starts from hours 6AM to 6PM and turns into Ladies Night when the Sun goes out.

For those who are unfamiliar with the concept of Ladies Night, it is a night where women get special deals just to be present at a venue. This can range from free entry to discounts to lucky draws at bars and clubs where Ladies Night is observed.

While Ladies Night typically happens on a Wednesday, some watering holes do organise it on other days of the week instead, like kyō which hosts it on Thursdays instead. Without further ado, here’s our list!



Whether you’re a rooftop bar connoisseur or a first-timer to skyline parties, we strongly advise taking the elevator all the way up to the 61st floor where 1-Altitude is located.

Deal: Ladies enjoy free entry into 1-Altitude all night long, along with $10 Martinis available as well.

Open four nights every week, dance club kyo is a little different from its peers with its Ladies Night being held on a Thursday instead of a Wednesday. But you can be sure to still have a good time letting your hair down and moving your feet to the music.

Deal: Ladies will get to enjoy free entry into kyo on Thursday nights, and receive free vodka cranberry from 10PM to 2AM.

Gem Bar


On the surface, Gem Bar may seem totally normal. Just another watering hole on Ann Siang Hill. But once you look a little deeper, you’ll find that it is notoriously cheeky, i.e. the perfect place for you ladies to spend an evening at. Its Ladies Night, which is held on Thursdays, is affectionately dubbed G-Spot Ladies Night. Why? Just look over at its menu and you’ll see suggestive drink names that will leave you giggling in your seat.

If you love Japanese culture, from the traditional to the mainstream to the sub-genres, then don’t miss out on 6828 8377

Cloth Koinobori


Do you know that in Japan, the carp is a symbol of courage, strength and success? According to one Japanese legend, the carp, which swims upwards, is thought to become a dragon as it beats the oncoming current. In the past, and now kept as a tradition, the families of the Samurai warriors would fly koinobori — carp streamers — as a way of honouring their children who are on the battlefield.

In this workshop, you will learn to make koinobori — carp streamers — and design it with stamps and paint. This event will take place on the 21st of May 2016 at 4 PM, and will last for an hour and 30 minutes. No advance registration is needed.

For example, you can use it to create belts and friendship bands, if you are interested.

This workshop will take place on the 22nd of May 2016 at 3 PM and 5.30 PM. Each session will last for an hour and 30 minutes. No advance registration is needed.

Created more than 150 years ago, at the end of the Edo era, Kuruma Ningyo is a style of puppetry that is considered a National Intangible Folk Custom Cultural Asset of Japan. Plus, before each show, the performers put on a sanbaso, a dance meant to bring luck, success and good bounty to its audience!

7 Novel Ideas For An Unforgettable 21st Birthday Party!

There are two kinds of people in this world when it comes to planning a 21st birthday bash: those who choose to organise the party at some relatively known hotel in town, equipped with photo booths, banners and cute props, or those who exercise a little more caution and creativity.

If you want your party to be truly memorable, check out these unconventional suggestions! There’s definitely something for everyone, no matter your budget.

1. Yacht it out


Cosy up, because nothing screams “fabulous” quite as loud as a birthday party on a yacht. No matter how big or small your party group is, there’s bound to be a yacht or boat in the right size for you. Just don’t forget your shades!

Pro-tip? Always be sure to book with a reputable operator or broker, instead of going for the cheapest. They will be helping you every step of the way, especially when something goes wrong. An example would be Marina at Keppel Bay or and +65 6571 0000 for more details.

4. Blast to the past with McDonald’s


Say goodbye to your childhood and hello to being an adult (and taxes) with a McDonald’s party! Not only are adults welcome to have their parties at our favourite fast food restaurant, they will also receive all the same branded surprise presents as their younger counterparts. However, do note that there is a minimum booking of 15 guests required.

For more information, look up McDonald’s Birthday Parties FAQ!

5. Wheels up with Singapore Flyer


For a fancy price of S$1,500 per private capsule, which will complete one rotation in half an hour, you can invite up to 28 people to a swift yet sweet birthday party with quite a view to boot! Each booking provides express boarding privileges, access to a personal event planner, four small, detachable benches, and serving tables for food and beverages.

For more information, visit Singapore Flyer’s website 7. Video game champions


If you’re a fan of video games and the thrill they bring every time you take down the enemy in a first-person shooter game or when Mario finally rescues the princess, then you don’t want to miss out on this! Games include music and rhythm, multiplayer, and sports titles from Just Dance on the Kinect to Fifa to Raving Rabbids.

6 Best Places In The West For Alcohol For Your Friday Chill Night

“West side, best side” — that’s the mantra of all Westies (as opposed to their rivals who live in the East of Singapore who love to chant “East side, beast side…”).

Although those who do not live in ‘The West’ generally reckon it to be the land of IMM and perpetual construction projects, with some even joking that it’s basically a different country altogether, we’re here to prove that there are great bars and pubs in the West region of Singapore to get your drink from.

For reference, we’ve only selected watering holes that are a short distance away from any MRT Station between Pioneer and Queenstown on the East-West Line. This can either be a 20-min walk, 10-min bus ride, or 5-min drive, pending traffic conditions.

P.S. We have excluded drinking spots in Holland Village because, let’s face it, that’s already every Westsider’s go-to liquor place. So… let the hunt begin!

1. Idle 


Idle is most famous for its signature ‘Liquid Buffet’ that provides unlimited alcohol (note: gin, vodka, rum whisky, bourbon and beer) at just $25 for women and $30 for men. While it opens Monday to Saturday 5 PM to 12 AM, according to its staff, its outlet at the International Business Park can get quite packed during weekends so we do advise making reservations ahead of time.

Tel: +65 9233 7533
Opening Hours: Monday to Saturday, 5 PM – 11 PM

2. Alibabar Dining Cafe Bar


Located in Alexandra Central Mall, just next to everyone’s favourite Swedish furniture store IKEA and four-star hotel Park Alexandra Hotel, Alibabar Dining Cafe Bar is a great place to spend your weeknight chilling out with friends and a couple of beers. We strongly advise going for the outdoor seating if it’s available, and ordering yourself a neat juicy burger to go along with your drink. Bonus points if you can spot this German pale lager with quite the profanity for its name.

Address: Alexandra Central Mall #01-15, 321 Alexandra Road, Singapore 159971
Tel: +65 62502633

Everything For Free? Introducing SG’s Really Really Free Market!

Most people applaud those who have the bravery and heart to hoard as little as possible. That’s why there are books on minimalism, theories on only keeping things that matter, and documentary-slash-interventions on doing away with things you don’t need.

There’s also a certain joy and liberation you get from cleaning, not to mention, the extra space in the house, especially if you’re living in a small apartment.

At least that’s how my friends and I felt when we attended the 41st Singapore Really Really Free Market organised by local social enterprise Post-Museum. The event, which was hosted at art gallery DECK in central-Singapore, celebrates a more sustainable way of living, and sharing what we have.

IMG_0989 IMG_1005 IMG_0992IMG_0994

This went beyond material goods like clothes, toys, and books. You could also get a tarot card reading for free if you were interested. You could learn to hoola-hoop with strangers if you were feeling a little sporty. Or listen to someone tell a story. For a minute, people forgot about their wallets, the malls, and the tiresome art of negotiating. 


My loot from the free market included a book featuring the twenty arrondissements of Paris (pictured below), which is a charming find for any francophile, a golden bikini top that will go superbly with a trip to Siloso Beach, and a button-down shirt that looks as good as new. What a score!


Best of all, everyone is welcomed. From young children who grabbed secondhand plush toys to couples picking out roller blades and books to the older folks picking out designer clothing. Just don’t forget sunscreen and an open mind.


The next Singapore Really Really Free Market will take place on 19 June 2016. For more information, you can hit up their Facebook page!

8 SG Politicians Rocking The Instagram Game Better Than You

If you’re at all surprised that politicians in Singapore can be social media-savvy (despite all the incidents that seem to befall their Facebook accounts), then this list will show you that Instagram isn’t just for 20-somethings with a penchant for #ootd shots.

From photographs of bak chor mee to campaigning on the ground to selfies — and trust us, there are a lot of selfies! – here are the top 10 Singaporean politicians to follow on our favourite photo sharing app.

Lee Hsien Loong / @leehsienloong


Did you think we would start our list with anyone else? Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who was among one of the first politicians to join Instagram, uploads snapshots of his life regularly onto the social media platform with warm captions, allowing followers to engage him through comments. Also, check out his #guesswhere photographs, which often showcase a less mainstream image of Singapore (basically, not MBS!).

Baey Yam Keng / @baeyyamkeng


It’s evident that Instagram’s selfie king, Baey Yam Keng, who is the Parliamentary Secretary, and MCCY MP for Tampines GRC, hasn’t lost his gut instincts for what makes a great shot. From his Instagram page, we can deduce that Baey is a fitness nut who has even got his colleagues to work out with him (we feel for you, Grace Fu and Koh Poh Koon…). Oh, and he’s on Snapchat too!

He Ting Ru / @tingruhe


Dressed in blue most of the time, He Ting Ru, who is the Secretary of Workers’ Party, and ran in the last General Election last September, is definitely one to follow on Instagram. Being a cat lady (her family was reported to have taken in 8 strays), her updates are down-to-earth and extremely personal. You’ll find shots of her lunch, cats, more cats, and what you can basically expect from your next door neighbour who’s super busy but still manages to find time to post updates.

Kevryn Lim / @kevryn_lim


Kevryn Lim’s Instagram page says one thing: badass, although her Instagram bio reads a little pseudo-Machiavellian: “You can’t make people love you, but you can make them fear you!”. She made her debut in last September’s General Election when she ran as a candidate under the National Solidarity Party, and has made quite the impression ever since. Best photographs on her Instagram page include shots of her abs at the gym, skylines of Singapore, and her adorable toddler.

Sylvia Lim / @sylvialim65


Sylvia Lim, a member of Workers’ Party, and a Member of Parliament representing Aljunied GRC, is a regular on Instagram. Her posts, which can get up to hundreds of likes, often offer followers a peek into the heartlands — be it mee suah stalls that come highly recommended or traditional theatre that may not be as popular in today’s day and age. However, what struck us as the most Singaporean shot of the city-state may just be that rooster on a vehicle.

Teo Ser Luck / @teo_serluck


Bak chor kway teow soup? Hell yeah! PAP’s Teo Ser Luck, who is the country’s current Minister of State at the Ministry of Trade and Industry, as well as the mayor of the Northeast District, is no stranger to Instagram, although his posts are quite sporadic. Plus, his hashtags are seriously hilarious, what with “MPsofreepostfoodagain”, “nohorserun” and “talksomuchyouMPorfoodcritic”.

Seah Kian Peng / @seahkianpeng


Seah Kian Peng, a PAP member and the MP representing Marine Parade GRC, isn’t one to shy away from telling his followers about his enthusiasm regarding sports, from rugby to running to football. You will definitely be able to find photographs of him stretching away in between lots and lots of people shots – from residents to family to Cai Shen Ye strutting it during Chinese New Year.

Tan Chuan Jin / @chuanjin1


If you want a little more colour in your life, why not follow Tan Chuan-Jin? The country’s Minister for Social and Family Development has got a rather vibrant Instagram page, featuring beautiful shots of Singapore Airlines’ planes at Changi Airport, foodporn, and flowers. And if you think that’s not enough, guess what… the guy posts photographs of cats and dogs as well. Can’t beat that.

Are there other politicians you think we should have highlighted? Drop us a tip!
