Get More Out Of Life, Starting This Weekend

Planning ahead means more things to look forward to!


Feel like your days go by in a blur and suddenly a month or two has gone by without you doing anything out of the ordinary? You're not alone. We get so caught up with work and life's responsibilities that when we do have some free time, chances are we've fallen asleep on the couch.

Forward planning is key; embracing it will mean 2016 can be a little more exciting and memorable. This weekend, instead of having yet another moan about things, put some plans into action. Here are some suggestions to consider.

Book your tickets to see Il Divo

Carlos, Urs, David and Sebastian will be heading our way again. The multinational classical-pop group with the model-hot members will be here as part of their Amor & Passion World Tour Singapore 2016, to serenade with sensual Latin love songs. Book your tickets here. 4 April, 8pm, The Star Theatre @ The Star Performing Arts Centre. Tickets at $278, $238, $198, $168, $138, $98 (excluding SISTIC charges). Visit for the latest updates.

Draw up an IKEA shopping list

Get set for the IKEA Swedest Sale from 10 to 27 March! When it comes to kitting out your living space, it’s now or never (until the next sale anyway). We’re told there are hot deals such as   the KULLAR steel vacuum flask going at just $9.90 (U.P. $12.90) and the adorable KAMRATLIG soft toy at just $1.50 (U.P $2.90). And if you’re not already an IKEA FAMILY member, sign up here to be invited to a one-day-only exclusive Sale Preview on 9 March – so you get first dibs and enjoy even better discounts before the hordes arrive.  Visit for more Swede deals.

Sign up for The Music Run™ by AIA

 Let’s get loud, because it’s time to lace up those Nikes and be in good shape for this run-meets-music-festival. Involving key presenting sponsor AIA and partners like LUSH 99.5FM, 987FM, Sentosa and Oakley, it features a 5km running course lined with over 120 speakers pumping out rock, pop, old school, hip hop and dance tracks. You can also expect good food and awesome giveaways, and get your second win at the after-run party complete with DJs, laser lights and fireworks. Gather your favourite girls and register here  and don't forget to vote in your favourite music tracks for the run's playlist too!

Schedule a getaway

Consider Cheval Blanc Randheli in the Maldives, an LVMH resort designed to look like a home by the sea. There, you'll be relaxing at the Cheval Blanc Spa, in exclusive collaboration with Guerlain that's accessible on board a dhoni, the traditional boat of the Maldives. Choose between six massage cabins, two hammams, yoga, pilates and meditation pavilions  and an overflow pool with restaurant. And don't leave without enjoying a luxurious hair treatment at Leonor Greyl Hair Spa. Find out more here
