The Cheat Sheet: New restaurants, Boracay resorts, and all-white sneakers

The past week has been an interesting one, to say the least. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’d probably be aware of (and have been following) news of a certain family feud that has been dominating recent headlines. It seems the dust has settled for now, but we can’t help but wonder what will happen next.

Other high-profile developments around the world, albeit a little less dramatic, include the ongoing Wimbledon tennis championships, the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany this weekend, and — for diehard fans of Korean drama series Descendants of the Sun, the announcement that the popular show’s main characters have taken their onscreen romance to the real world, and are set to tie the knot. Everyone loves a happy ending, right?

With the weekend upon us, our current top priority is planning what to do, and where to go. If you’re feeling uninspired, this week’s The Cheat Sheet has a line-up of activities to help you out. Swing by some of Singapore’s newly opened restaurants, plan your next Boracay getaway, and learn all about Ao Yun‘s new 2014 vintage — which is produced in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains. And in the spirit of Wimbledon, why not treat yourself to a super chic pair of new white sneakers?
