Best deals in Singapore for September 2018


It’s September, and we know what that means: cue that now-stale joke about being woken up only when the month ends, a la Green Day. Ha ha, very funny. But those keeping their eyes peeled will be the ones having the last laugh, because there are a couple of great money-saving promos you’ll want to snag before the month zooms by - from $8 Bath and Body Works fragrances to free pancake batter at DIY pancake joint Slappy Cakes


1. Up to 80% off branded shoes at Star 360’s warehouse sale

Having a comfortable pair of kicks is important because inadequate support and bad cutting will give you foot problems and nasty blisters. If your go-to shoes are falling apart, save your soles with some spanking new ones at Star 360’s warehouse sale. Up for grabs will be trendy sneakers from brands like Adidas, Birkenstock, Dr Martens, and more at up to 80% off.

Fancy a mountainous feast? Fujisoba is now offering their 6-course Mount Fuji Icy Hot Pot Party Set at $49.80 per person, down from $65. An ice hotpot might sound like an oxymoron, but how this works is that the seafood and chicken broth is frozen into ice overnight for optimum freshness - and later on heated up into a bubbling broth, revealing ingredients like snow crab and shrimp beneath.

But that’s just the tip of the iceberg - pun unintended. Other courses in your meal will include an appetiser set with soba, sashimi, and shredded yam, as well as Matcha Warabi Mochi with Caramel Sauce as your dessert.
