The Cheat Sheet: Sake bars, double denim, and Mother’s Day brunches

In case you haven’t heard, Wednesday night saw the announcement of some rather big news: Pop princess Britney Spears is coming to Singapore. The concert is slated to take place on 30 June, and marks the singer’s first gig here in almost two decades — she last performed in 1998 at a closed-door event. Details are still under wraps, but we’re expecting tickets to sell like hot cakes — perhaps even more so than Coldplay’s recent show here.

Another development that got us really excited, was the unveiling of the all-Asian cast for Crazy Rich Asians, the movie adaptation of Kevin Kwan’s best-selling book. The film is centred on the fictional lives of Singapore’s wealthy elite, and features Fresh off the Boat star Constance Wu and travel host Henry Golding in its lead roles. What we’re particularly psyched about, though, is that its cast also includes local actors Fiona Xie, Pierre Png and Tan Kheng Hua. This is a movie we definitely don’t want to miss.

While we all wait in anticipation for Crazy Rich Asians‘ release, as well as keep our eyes peeled for more information about Spears’ concert, here are some ideas on what to do over the long Labour Day weekend. We suggest stopping by some of Singapore’s finest sake bars, experimenting with double denim ensembles, and making your brunch reservations for Mother’s Day. And if you’re contemplating a short getaway, we’ve put together a list to 5 pink sand beaches to visit.
