Celebrate Singapore’s birthday with these bargains


We can’t wait to snatch up the bargains this SG53 has brought us and look forward to years of deals to come. Maybe in 47 years, we’ll get that ever elusive 100% off #AGirlCanDream 😉

But beyond our national pastime of scouting out good deals, there’s also an annual routine that’s close to our hearts: the National Day Parade. Whether we’re live at the parade, or watching it unfold proudly at home, one thing’s for sure – it gives us all the feels

So let us wear our red and white with pride when we recite the pledge and sing the National Anthem as a nation during this NDP 2018. With the island-wide celebrations leading up to this moment, all we can say is, have a wonderful 53th Birthday Singapore.
