Alexa, play “Let It Snow”, ‘cos things are getting chilly over here…
Brr, it’s cold in… Singapore? Don’t hold off your mulled wine just yet, you read that right. Enjoying the snow in our tropical city may seem as unattainable as our diet plan for Christmas but it’s actually possible. These spots may not have actual powdery white snow like the kind you’ll find at a ski resort, but they’re still frosty enough for you to whip out your thinnest winter wear.
