Things to do this weekend in Singapore
1. Eat, drink, shop: Kris+ by Singapore Airlines
In case you haven’t heard, Kris+ is the ultimate app for frequent flyers. Not only does it offer the best miles earn rates (up to nine miles / $1 spend) in Singapore, but it also provides exclusive deals and privileges. For those who love to eat out, Kris+ is a game-changer. This app offers the highest miles return rate, stackable with your existing credit card rewards. This makes it much easier to accumulate miles quickly – every dollar you spend gets you closer to redeeming your next flight.
Plus, you get to enjoy privileges and deals when you shop or dine at selected merchants. We’re talking about deals with partners like Alma by Juan Amador, Lime House, Ginett Restaurant & Bar, Challenger, Adidas, Guess and many more. Better yet, its miles rewards have no cap, no minimum spend required and can be stacked with other existing discounts and rewards available within the app. That means you can earn more miles when you dine or shop at one of their 1,500+ partner outlets. You know what to do this weekend – shop, dine or play with the Kris+ app and you’ll be on your way to your next adventure in no time!

We’ll never be able to get over the grandeur of Gardens by the Bay. Being surrounded by lush nature and taking a scenic walk through the area is enough to calm all of our nerves. It’s one of the largest displays of horticulture and garden artistry in Singapore. Which truly adds to our garden city reputation. What we look forward to is the rotating themes within the Flower Dome. This weekend, the dome takes on a Japanese sakura flower display. Inspired by train travel, the Flower Dome is transformed into a lush cherry blossom experience. Be on the lookout for Japanese cultural programmes being held within the dome! This includes a live tea ceremony and performances brought to you by the Japan Creative Centre.

10. Eat & drink: Celebrate the Holi festival at Tiffin Room
We might be talking a lot about International Women’s Day, but we definitely haven’t forgotten about Holi. This Hindu tradition is arguably one of the most popular (and colourful) festivals in Hinduism. It’s to welcome spring and new beginnings. You might even see pictures of people getting doused in colourful powders. For us, the excitement is in the food.
To celebrate Holi, Tiffin Room is presenting a delicious North Indian spread. Start with a welcome drink of thandai, a popular summer beverage in India. It consists of almonds, fennel seeds, black peppercorns, and rose petals. Then you’ve got the food. Savour dishes like tandoori chicken chaat and grilled tandoori black cod to mains like murgh badami korma (chicken with fresh Indian spices) and sarson wala gosht (lamb chops in a mustard and spinach paste). Vegetarian and non-vegetarian options are available, so gather your loved ones for a celebratory feast!
