Singapore is in the midst of some trying times, but just because we should avoid heading out doesn’t mean we can’t treat ourselves well.
More and more restaurants are offering island-wide delivery, meaning that you can get favourite meals delivered right to your doorstep and savour them from the comfort of your own home.
