It’s finally Friday, and we can’t wait to get our weekend started with lots of great music (and festival grub) at tomorrow’s St Jerome’s Laneway Festival, and peruse impressive works of contemporary art at the ongoing Singapore Contemporary. If music and art don’t quite strike your fancy, and you’d rather spend your time lounging at home, The Cheat Sheet has got you covered with some stories worth reading.

This week, find out all about the history of Louis Vuitton‘s monogram, the newly-resurrected Jaguar XKSS, and which restaurants to hold your Chinese New Year reunion dinner at. Don’t forget to make your reservations soon.
