With Singapore now in phase two of the post-circuit breaker period, most retail outlets have resumed business, with dining in at F&B outlets and social gatherings allowed up to five people.

“Definitely look forward to dining out with my family and friends now that it’s safe to do so. This means having our favorite Japanese food and indulging in long conversations in a café over a warm Chai Tea Latte. Oh, and maybe drop by the yoga studio again!”– Christine Lim, PR Senior Account Executive
“After experiencing some serious Zoom fatigue the other day, all I really want to do is to meet my friends physically at a café and talk for hours. I have especially fond memories with various groups of friends at Raffles City’s Tiong Bahru Bakery – that’s our go-to hang out spot because of its central location and chill vibes.” – Curie Roe, PR Senior Account Executive
“I am looking forward to getting back to the beach to play some volleyball with my friends again, and of course dining out at my favorite places! This means satisfying my cravings of Five Guys, Mala, Sushi and Pho!” – Daniella Miller, Talent Associate
“I can’t wait to get back to Ritual gym, Common Man for brunch, and to all my favorite bars and restaurants. The venues have rallied to provide guests in incredible takeaway options, but I am missing the people who make it all happen and their world-class hospitality. I’ve found myself missing the simple things, like sitting outside with a glass of wine, strolling along while sipping my coffee (back in the days where we could be out without a mask), and catching up with my friends. The first thing I’ll do is have an al fresco Aperol Spritz!” – Erin Padilla, CEO & Co-Founder
“I’m really looking forward to seeing my friends and being able to enjoy going out for dinner and drinks. Also, with the beaches opening back up again, we can finally take the pups down for a swim (and a Rosé) at the weekends” – Jen Stewart, PR Senior Account Manager
“I think I’ve participated in enough Zoom cocktail hours to last me a lifetime – I’m so ready to see my friends in real life and enjoy a meal or a drink together! Further into the future, I can’t wait to travel again and be able to see my family back home in the US, but for now I’m looking forward to getting back out and enjoying all Singapore has to offer.” – Jess Slevin, PR Senior Account Director
“Can’t wait to have some Korean BBQ! Our office was previously located near great BBQ places and cooking at home just doesn’t sit right. And chilling in a cafe on a lazy weekend!” – Lydia Lee, HR Associate
“Would love to visit Rumours Beach Club which opened this year in January! With three swimming pools, cabanas, beanbags and authentic Balinese food, this is my definition of a perfect ‘Bali’ retreat since we can’t travel overseas at the moment. I am also looking forward to dining in at Yakiniku Like, barbecuing affordably priced meats on a smokeless grill!” –Thong Weng Tai, PR Account Coordinator
“As a family we cannot wait to be able to visit Tanjong Beach Club, we have missed going early in the morning on the weekends with our dog Wilbur who loves to run and splash in the water while we enjoy a brunch and go for a swim in the sea before it gets too hot for the pup.” – Vicky Jones, Finance Account Executive
