These are the most stylish desserts in town, courtesy of Japanese inspired cafe Karafuru Desserts and New York designer Alice and Olivia. The collaboration will see Karafuru’s interior and dessert sets decked out in A+O’s iconic monochrome palette and iconic ‘Stace Face’ image.

3. Fire and sake ramen

4. Tonkotsu Sake Ramen

Don’t underestimate the humble bowl of ramen. At Shin-Sapporo Ramen, you’ll find unusual ramens like the fire and sake ramen.

The former, a creamy and rich pork broth ramen, goes up in flames after boiling hot garlic oil is poured on it — a visual spectacular. The sake ramen, on the other hand, is a vinegar-based dish fragrant with the subtle aroma of sake.

To see

1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens

If you haven’t caught the latest installment of the space opera, now might be a good time since the opening weekend has passed and most people are now busy celebrating Christmas. If you need a little more persuasion to watch it, check out our preview here, or our review here (warning: spoilers).

2. Local designers and their inspirations

Singapore’s design community is growing, and if you’re a fan of some local designers, head on down to Keepers Playtime. Uncover the playful stories behind covetable pieces of work, attend public workshops and catch pop-up exhibitions. Awaken and inspire the inner child in you as you browse a selection of retail merchandise and designs.

3. A fairly true story about a princess

The creators of “Peter Pan, The Never Ending Story” are back with another fairy tale musical — but with a twist. “Cinderella, A Fairly True Story” focuses on Cinderella’s terrible circumstances as told by a reporter. However, as the reporter recounts to the audience Cinderella’s life and ambitions, he rejects any magical interventions and encourages Cinderella to pave her own path.
