1. Try the best cocktails in Singapore

Too many bars, too little time — that’s the gripe of many cocktail lovers. With the Singapore Cocktail Week returning for its second edition from Mar 12 to 19, you’ll be able to enjoy 8 days of unbridled bar hopping for just $38.

Festival-goers will be able to purchase a set of 8 wristbands (one per day), and enjoy access to all Singapore Cocktail Week parties and bar pop-ups, discounts off workshops, brunches and supper clubs, as well as $14 signature cocktails at participating bars.

Chilli Crab croissant _1

2. Tickle your tastebud with a chili crab croissant

Following the success of the salted egg lava croissant, Chef Pang of Antoinette has launched another savoury croissant to titillate our taste buds.

The new chili crab croissant ($7.50) is packed with the well-loved sweet and spicy flavours of the Singaporean dish. It is filled with real crab meat, specially concocted rempah (spice paste) and a house made tomato sauce. We especially loved the contrast of textures from the flaky pastry and the flowing chili crab fillings.

Milo Nutri G PET 190ml Bottle Wrap 6x6

3. Stock up on Milo

If you loved the Milo truck as a kid, here’s your favourite breakfast drink in a grown up version. Milo Nutri G ( $1.20 per bottle; $6.95 for a pack of six) is tailored just for adults, with four different whole grains – oats, brown rice, barley and wheat, incorporated into the beverage.

The result is a chocolatey, smooth and creamy blend that will leave you with enough energy to power through a hectic work day.

4. Explore a secret island

“Mystery Island” by Singapore-based artist Mojoko tells of the secrets of an island; a surreal world where Asian antiquity and heritage, and modern trash culture meet in striking cobalt silkscreen prints.

The artworks are inspired by archaeological treasures, nature and folklore in Southeast Asia. Look out for the piece that carries the title of the exhibition in English, Malay and Chinese. It’s reminiscent of movie posters from Singapore’s cinematic golden age of the 50s and 60s.

5. Marvel at beautiful lights

7. Go on an egg-citing hunt

The entire Sentosa and Harbourfront area is bursting into Easter extravaganzas this March holiday.

On top of a Grand Draw, participants can also stand to win attractive prizes every week, including shopping and dining vouchers, hotel stays, attraction tickets and more.

You can also egg-spect a bundle of colourful and festive Easter activities at SEA Aquarium’s “Ocean Eggsploration”, where kids can participate in the Eggtivity Trail by searching for clues which will lead them to the ten special Easter Eggs.

Over at Universal Studios Singapore, the popular Easter Eggstravaganza returns with a brand new stage show “An unEGGspected Wedding”, scrumptious buffet lunch with Easter characters and an exciting parkwide Easter egg hunt.
