The Cheat Sheet: December’s top tables, luxe festive decor, and flying with Japan Airlines

May the fourth passed more than half a year ago, but the Force is definitely strong this weekend with the second installment of J.J. Abrams’ second Star Wars film, The Last Jedi, hitting the big screens across the globe. Throughout the past week, we saw many theories as to what will happen in this year’s skirmish between the Jedi and the Sith, and we can’t wait to see who’s lightsaber reigns supreme.

Elsewhere, fashionistas are busy shopping for all things purple, seeing as Pantone just announced the colour for 2018, Ultra Violet. If you’re looking to incorporate the enigmatic hue into your life with more permanency, there’s always a gallery that will tickle your whimsy with interior inspiration for days.

And to cap off your weekend, head to one of Singapore’s latest clubs, AVRY, for a night of boozing and lounging at the first ever Dom Pérignon VIP Lounge Booth. For more stories you might have missed, keep on scrolling for this week’s edition of The Cheat Sheet.
