Best deals in August 2021
Can you really call yourself a Singaporean if you’re not constantly on the lookout for freebies and good lobangs? I know the inner auntie within me is always cheering with glee when I see slashed prices plastered on a store’s display.
While the reintroduced no dining-in policy may have dampened some spirits, here are some of the best August deals to save the day:
1. Yang Guo Fu – 50% off second bowl and 30% off set menu
