You know what is one way to really impress your guests and make them happy at your wedding?
TO HAVE A LLAOLLAO BOOTH, OF COURSE!
We did it and it proved to be among the most talked about highlights of our recently concluded wedding celebrations. Llaollao Catering is the newest arm of the very popular Spanish froyo brand, and it is an idea that is nothing short of refreshing. Our guests agreed that arriving early for the cocktail reception was well worth it.

It is no secret that Dishoom is our favourite Indian restaurant in London. Sexy and charming, Dishoom should be on everyone’s bucket list when visiting London. No other Indian restaurants come close.
While there are many other great Indian restaurants in London, Dishoom is the one you should visit if you only have time for one.
Queues are part of the restaurants’ characteristics, and during peak hours, be prepared to wait up to an hour for a table. And we are telling you go queue anyway, because hell yeah, a meal there is better than ten other Indian meals elsewhere.
Mitzo’s Weekend Dim Sum Brunch is probably one of the best deals in town, and one that everyone must try at least once! Dining in a sexy and intimate setting over free flow delicacies sounds like the perfect way to spend the weekend, no?

The Weekend Brunch is all about indulging in the finest at Mitzo. Love their signature Char Siew? Yes, you will have that free flow.
And in this revamped menu, everyone gets to pick one bamboo clam dish, one live lobster dish and an abalone dish each! That pretty much already pays for the S$68++ per person for brunch. How value-for-money!

While most people are preoccupied with their current and upcoming overseas travel plans, there are some who might be stuck in town – lack of annual leave, not enough days for a trip etc. And that’s completely alright, because Singapore itself has heaps of exciting events going on.

One of the best news we’ve received this month is knowing that United Airlines has launched its inaugural nonstop flight from Singapore to San Francisco on 03 June 2016. The Golden Gate City is now only 15 hours and 30 minutes away, and yes, it is a non-stop flight! Man, are we so done with transits!
United Airlines is the first airline to offer direct non-stop routes between these two metropoles. It is also currently the only aviation company offering a direct flight service between Singapore and the United States.
Previously, travellers would have to transit in Tokyo or Hong Kong and board a connecting flight to get to San Francisco. Thankfully, that hassle is no longer necessary.
London is the amazing British city where people from all walks of life move over to to call that place home. Being one of the finest in the world, London is a dream destination with so much to offer.

Thai Tantric at Orchard Towers is our all-time favourite Thai eatery in Singapore. There, we’ve said it. Thai Tantric is not the most fancy restaurant, nor is it a place where we would recommend for a date night.
But what makes this no-frills eatery a place you can return to regularly is its authentic Thai food at super reasonable prices. And that is precisely why it remains popular all these years.
Thinking of a great place to dine at can be quite a dilemma, especially if you want to have the whole trifecta – good food, great ambience and some delicious wine. Your steaks and burgers just ain’t complete without a good glass of red. And if dinner is a seafood dish or some hearty pasta, a glass of white is necessary to complete the experience.
Now, what if we told you that you can get a free bottle of wine with a minimum spend of only S$100 on a la carte food items, before GST at over 40 restaurants island wide? Yes, a whole bottle of either red or white wine on the house!
Also, there is absolutely no catch to it – just make sure you use your Citi Card when you pay! Here are 8 of the many Restaurants in Singapore to Dine in Style With A Free Bottle of Wine.
