The Cheat Sheet: Spanish restaurants, Bentley’s V8 Bentayga Diesel, and the world’s most expensive wine club

For ardent Apple fans in Singapore, 3:01pm today was an extremely important time. It marked the beginning of preorders for the new iPhone X, which will be launched on 3 November. The iPhone X is also the most expensive iPhone ever, with prices starting from $1,648. That’s a lot to fork out for a smartphone, but the gadget does offer an impressive range of functions such as facial recognition, wireless charging, and improved cameras. We can’t wait to try these out ourselves next month.

In other news, the first episode of Stranger Things 2 was officially released today. The hit Netflix series has captivated audiences worldwide with its gripping plot and talented child actors. If you haven’t yet jumped on the bandwagon, we recommend you do so, stat.

If you’ve already preordered your iPhone X and finished watching the highly-anticipated show, scroll through this week’s The Cheat Sheet for more ideas on how to spend the coming weekend.
