The Cheat Sheet: Omakase restaurants, wallpaper designers, and wine bars for Mother’s Day

This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and if you still haven’t made your reservations for brunch with mum, it’s time to do so, pronto. While our appreciation for our mums ought to be an everyday affair, May 14 is that one special occasion where we get an excuse to kick things up a notch and go all out in pampering our queens. If you need some gift ideas, we’ve rounded up several guides to beauty products, tech gadgets, watches and even spa packages to consider.

You can also bond with mum over an excellent movie or two at the Europe Union Film Festival in Singapore, which launches today at the National Gallery Singapore. There are 27 films to pick from, including Electricity (2014), Problemski Hotel (2015) and Life is a Trumpet (2015). Round off your celebrations on a good note by taking mum to a classy wine bar right after, where you both can unwind over drinks and great conversation.

Apart from spending time with mum this weekend, we’ve got a few other ideas that will keep you well occupied, such as visiting some of Singapore’s best omakase restaurants, decorating your living spaces with beautiful wallpapers, and trying out Sulwhasoo’s new First Care Activating Sheet Mask. Read on to find out more.
