For those who are lamenting about how the upcoming Valentine’s Day is a harsh Single-Awareness-Day (“SAD”), it is time to face reality.
There is nothing wrong with being single, and in fact, there are many blessings that you can enjoy as a single person. For instance, you can regularly avoid burning a hole in your pocket (especially during special occasions), and you have the freedom to pursue whatever you want!
This year, instead of wondering why your Prince Charming has not swept you off your feet, we have some light-hearted suggestions. These are 8 Ways to Survive Valentine’s Day If You Are Single, which will not only allow you to understand the love between people, the love for others, but most importantly, love for yourself.
Valentine’s Day may be just another day to you but your partner may not think so. Surprise your partner with a little something this February 14!
Both Park Hotel Alexandra and Grand Park Orchard have staycation deals and romantic dinner offers that you can surprise your loved ones with. So, Valentine’s Day 2017 need not be a lavish affair if you know where to pick up the right deal. You are welcome.
Valentine’s Day is coming and if you are always looking for ways to break your usual dating routine(s) with your partner, we might just have the answer for you. Truth to be told, it can be easier than you think. Whenever you see a fun activity that your friends shared on their social media, or from a drama serial, or anything at all – note them down on your mobile phone.
Another easy method is just to recall the things you used to love to do (before life caught up on you). Was it singing karaoke with your buddies? Having a friendly match of snooker? Or simply staying at home playing board games? Revisit them.
There are so many possibilities and even more ways to keep the love alive. Here, we share with you some Valentine’s Day Date Ideas – 9 Fun Activities & Thrilling Things to Do in Singapore.
A romantic dinner, live band belting out love ballads, friendly staff taking polaroid photos for precious keepsake – this was our Valentine’s Day dinner at O’Coffee Club.
Many people know O’Coffee Club as a popular cafe chain where they can hang out with friends over drinks and food. But what many people do not know is that O’Coffee Club is also a place to go for special occasions. We celebrated Valentine’s Day at O’Coffee Club’s first outlet in Holland Village, and the night marks another chapter in our journey.

They say if you fall in love with the right person, everyday is Valentine’s Day. True that, and while we need no excuse to be romantic, Valentine’s Day has been around forever and the day will be exceptionally sweeter with lots of love in the air.
Valentine’s Day need not be all about chocolates and diamonds. Wine & Dine is the most popular indulgence with the love of your life, but there are many other interesting ways to spend the day. Whatever it is, pick an activity that both of you enjoy, and just forget the world.
Here are 10 things to do on Valentine’s Day with your other half.
For many, Valentine’s Day is a dreadful day as restaurants mark up their prices ridiculously. However, it is still possible to have fun celebrating Valentine’s Day – with your partner, your family, or a group of friends – if you know where to go.
Here’s my guide to Valentine’s Day Dinner in Singapore 2013.
With twenty branches around the island, O’Coffee Club is one of the most recognised cafe chains in Singapore. For Valentine’s Day this year, O’Coffee Club has specially created a 5-course Epicurean dinner at their first outlet in Holland Village. There will be live band playing while you enjoy a scrumptious dinner.
As this is a one-time special with an exclusive menu only available at Holland Village’s outlet for this Valentine’s Day, seats are limited. I will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with my partner there, and if you are thinking of where to go for a romantic dinner, why not join us on that special night?
Besides the 5-course Epicurean Dinner on Valentine’s Day, O’Coffee Club has also lined up many treats for us in the month of February.
Macarons lovers will be thrilled to know that the new creations include ‘Muddy Mud Pie Macaroon’, which is inspired by their famous ‘Muddy Mud Pie’ dessert and ‘CNY Pineapple Macaroon’. If you are looking for a Chinese New Year gift, O’Coffee Club’s ‘Haute Collection Pineapple Tarts’ ($6.80++ per box of 8) is the perfect thing to buy besides the usual mandarin oranges when you go visiting in the CNY. Also, their February’s high tea set ($8.50/pax) is one of the most affordable afternoon tea sets in town.
That is the start of my tantalizing adventure with O’Coffee Club. Remember to sign up for the event, and we shall have a ball of a time celebrating Valentine’s Day at O’Coffee Club together.
My friends always ask me for suggestions of gift ideas for their boyfriends. Since Valentine’s Day is just next week, I thought it would be fun to share some ideas on presents to get for guys.
Contrary to popular belief, getting presents for men is not that difficult; you just need to know what his hobbies are. Guys love gadgets, or at least, most guys do. Just go along that line and you’ll be fine. If not, you can always bring him to go shopping for a wardrobe overhaul. (Just make sure you promise not to walk into the female section.)
Here’s a list of Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Men.
With Valentine’s Day just two weeks away, the question on everyone’s mind: where to go for a romantic date?
Since Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, I’d suggest celebrating it the weekend before, or a few days after. Unless both of you have violent objections and insist on celebrating it on the actual day, it really doesn’t make sense to pay so much just because it is February fourteenth.
As such, this post is mainly on romantic restaurants in Singapore which I think are worth trying; you can also use it as a guide for other special occasions. (I’m not including the details of Valentine’s Day set menus. If you want to find out more, please call the respective restaurant to check their Valentine’s Day promotions.)

Saint Valentine’s is a strange little thing, it comes and leaves in a hurry, but memories will always stay behind. Even though it is a day where retailers, florists and restaurateurs rejoice – I believe in Valentine’s day. The idea behind it (less the commercialise plots), is very sacred; Valentine’s is all about you and me.
Have you decided on a romantic restaurant for your Valentine’s Day Dinner?
Epicurious, located on the banks of Robertson Quay, has been in operations for close to 6 years now. The restaurant is the brainchild of the duo owners, Helena and Sharon. The concept for the restaurant is like a neighbour joint, serving casual food where you can chill out and enjoy a meal without any qualms.
Bistro One Zero Three sounds quite interesting right? Being the inquisitive me, i was naturally attracted to the name, and hence the visit to the place. Located at Pasir Panjang, its not a place where you’ll imagine a restaurant like Bistro One Zero Three will be situated. Nevertheless, the ‘ulu’ place makes it fun to go to, as though like we are on a food-hunting trait.
Initially we thought it was near the Haw Par Villa area, so we started looking for it there, but then how wrong we were, Bistro One Zero Three is at the other end of Pasir Panjang Road, quite near to PSA Building. If you are going there by train, i suggest stopping at HarbourFront and take a bus there, its only a couple of bus-stops away from HarbourFront.
