Singaporeans love discounts more than anything, so in our true national spirit, here are the best promotions rounded up for August 2018.

When tea kiosks sell their drinks at an average of $4 to $5 these days, I often have to think twice before treating myself. But that won’t be the case with Oh Cha Cha’s National Day promotion - where any purchase of Matcha Latte Tofu Tea, Jinfeng Tea with Fresh Fruit, Milk Chocolate Tofu Tea, or Tie Guan Yin Tofu Tea will let you enjoy one of the following at just $1:

  • Peach Milk Tea
  • Jin Xuan Tofu Tea
  • Milk Green Tea
  • Red Milk Tea

This is almost akin to a 1-for-1 deal, so grab a buddy and enjoy your beverages together!

Good quality sashimi, as we all know, doesn’t come cheap. But you don’t have to be “eating grass” for the rest of the month after indulging in Tsukiji Sushi Takewaka’s Assorted Special Maguro Sushi - ‘cause it’s currently going at a very affordable $32 (U.P. $64)

You’ll be getting a decadent platter of 7 pieces of sushi (4 types), with negitoro maki thrown into the mix. The tuna used is flown in from Japan so you can expect it to be top-grade and uber fresh.
