Impress your date

If you're looking for something cute and romantic to do with your date, I would suggest exploring Singapore's first local gin distillery!

Together with your other half, you can taste locally sourced ingredients, as well as learn the processes of distillation, from mixing to bottling.

Get to know ingredients like juniper berries – the primary botanical used in gin production and the signature note on both the nose and on the palate.

After the tour, savour four different Tanglin Gin expressions, followed by a bespoke gin and tonic cocktail. If the flavours appeal to you, purchase a Tanglin Gin bottle to enjoy at home at reduced cellar door rates.

Besides that, you'll also get to learn a brief history of gin and what makes this botanical spirit so popular and prep your tastebuds for a tasting flight of gin with stories behind each unique gin expression!

Fun time with family

March school holiday is here and if you're thinking of bringing your kids or niece/nephew out for some quality time, here are some of my recommendations.

Spot intertidal animals

What better way to pique the little ones' curiosity than embracing nature?

When the tide goes out, the intertidal animals come out to play! For a small window of time on just a few days a month, the lowest tide of the day or night exposes the exciting intertidal zone.

Find burrowing animals like sand bubbler crabs, ghost crabs and other wildlife including sea stars, sand dollars and button snails on the beach.

Spot the tiniest hermit crabs, watch how a sea cucumber breathes, follow a sea star searching for food, and learn about the fun facts of many more unique marine creatures living in this special habitat.

Prepare to be surprised and amazed. Suitable for everyone from kids to adults, and groups of friends to nature seekers! For more information, head here.

Discover Clementi Forest

If you're a nature lover, hiking Clementi Forest is a must to do.

Hike through the dense botanical landscape of Clementi Forest on an adventure to explore the abandoned Jurong Railway Line. Opened in 1965, the Jurong Railway ran 19 km from the Bukit Timah Railway Station to Shipyard Road, near present-day Jurong Island.

Be a tourist

Why not bring them to the Peranakan shophouse!

The Katong Antique House may be a small museum, but it is indeed a charming potpourri of Peranakan heritage.

Located in a two-storey shophouse in Katong, this private museum is a treasure trove of artifacts, costumes, and furniture that gives visitors unique insights into the Peranakan way of life, history, and culture.

Visitors get to experience daily life as a Peranakan with traditional costumes and snacks - from batik sarongs and beaded slippers to pineapples tarts and sweets
