We’re still reeling from the recent news that one of our favourite bubble tea brands has undergone a major revamp, complete with a Hokkien name and, well, a new signature (and partially savoury) drink that sounds a bit of a head-scratcher. But we’ll spare you the details.

Apart from rushing out to buy our last few precious cups of bubble tea, we’re planning to spend this weekend getting ready and planning our outfits for the 2017 Sentebale Royal Salute Polo Cup, which takes place on 5 June (Monday). This year’s edition is particularly noteworthy, because Britain’s Prince Harry will be present to play a charity match. We have to admit we’re pretty excited to see him in person, even if he’s already off the market and our Cinderella-type fantasies will never come to fruition.

Even if you aren’t attending the match, there’s still plenty to do this weekend. We suggest stopping some of Singapore’s finest Greek restaurants, sampling the new Veuve Clicquot Extra Brut Extra Old, and stocking up your dresser with Chanel’s Fall/ Winter 2017 beauty products.
