You’re in for a treat if you’re born in the month of August, just like our Little Red Dot. For the month of August, you’ll get to dine free as long as you’re accompanied by a paying adult. The attractive promotion allows the diner to pick scrumptious dishes from the ‘Pasta & Risotto’ and ‘Meat & Fish’ section of the menu. Enjoy signature seafood items such as lobster barley risotto, miso lobster, spicy crabmeat pasta and more. To enjoy this promotion, August babies will have to flash their ID upon ordering.

At the manicure booths at Singapore Botanic Gardens and Marina Barrage, look out for quirky 3D nail art designs of Singapore iconic landmarks as Changi Airport, Marina Bay Sands and Merlion. These SG50-inspired designs will be paraded by two models, who will be dressed in a specially designed costume inspired by the Singapore Flag.

The artists from beauty mobile app Vanitee are also offering express gel manicures inspired by Singapore flag colours. The express gel manicure will be complimentary at Singapore Botanic Gardens to commemorate it as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
