We’ve got a truly jam-packed issue this month for you. In addition to our holiday-themed features – which includes a guide to the coolest gifts available around town, a special on Christmas beauty sets and local online shopping sites (all with free shipping within Singapore), an advent calendar of good deeds for every day of the month, activities to get tots into the holiday spirit, round-ups of the best private dining rooms for planning a holiday party (or any special get-together throughout the year) and cocktail punch bowls for sharing among friends. And there’s New Year’s Eve as well – see our lists of countdown events and parties on that night, plus some options around Asia if you’re looking to get out of town.
Aside from all that, you can find out about the year’s most notable food trends, the new Downtown Line opening this month and an exhilarating group-bonding activity that’s fast becoming all the rage around town. Of course, we haven’t forgotten about ZoukOut – and we’ve also got interviews with The Hobbit’s Martin Freeman, Alien and Blade Runner director Ridley Scott, zoology-obsessed local artist Robert Zhao Renhui, Singapore’s only clinical sexologist Dr Martha Lee... just pick any page and go from there!
