Yes, we’ve literally got a bag full of great stuff this issue. Since we’re in the middle of the Great Singapore Sale shopping season, we’ve decided to throw our own shopping ‘bag’ into the mix (having been inspired by the various 3D art museums opening around town) with some retail suggestions. If you happen to be out at a heartland mall looking for something out of the ordinary, be sure to check out some of the hidden gems we’ve uncovered – there’s plenty more to Singapore’s malls than just international brands or cheesy fashion trends. We’ve also got a round-up of a few multi-concept stores, which integrate cafés, hair salons and more into the experience.
Plus, there’s a slew of new restaurant and bar openings listed this month – pop by the five-starred Sugarhall, as well as Teppei’s latest yakitori joint (if you can get a seat). And to top it all off, we’ve rated a selection of churros from restaurants around town.
Aside from that, there are plenty of interesting stories to keep you occupied in the meantime, including a list of some of the 60-plus islands that comprise Singapore, some lesser-known facts about homegrown Mandopop queen Stefanie Sun and an introduction to Marvel’s latest superhero group, the Guardians of the Galaxy.
