No sweat – we’ve got a bunch of great deals this October to help you with that.

It’s by the same folk behind I’m Kim Junior and I’m Kim Korean BBQ, so if its sister restaurants are anything to go by, you can expect a well-marinated paradise of meat and seafood, along with some pre-cooked side dishes.

Self-maintenance isn’t cheap, especially when you have to go for regular touch-ups for your beauty treatments each month. Stay glam without letting your wallet suffer with the following brow, lash, and nail promotions from Limmy’s:

  • Classic Gel Mani & Gel Pedi at $58 (U.P. $116)

Image credit: @limmyssg

What’s awesome about this beauty parlour is that they don’t thin down your nails before a coat of gelish, to ensure minimal damage. They also adopt a strand-by-strand technique instead of applying lash extensions in clusters, even though the former is more time consuming and requires more skill. Clearly, their clients’ wellbeing is top priority.

Image credit: @fraeulein_nicci

It’s easy to overlook the other desserts at Ikea when most of us are fixated on their signature Almond Cakes, but the Princess Cake is worth a try too. Each of these pretty pink marzipan confections are now going at $3 (U.P. $3.50). It’s a small discount, but you can use the 50 cents saved to try the new Soy Ice Cream.

14. $0.10 bubble tea at Kung Fu Tea (U.P. $4.30)

Image credit: @thesmartlocalsg

Bubble tea is love, bubble tea is life, and bubble tea ain’t cheap especially if you’re going to drink it every other day. But instead of forking out the usual $4.30 for Kung Fu Tea’s 38 Milk King – with pearls and yummy jelly cubes – you’ll only have to pay 10 cents on 6 October at their Hougang outlet. Arrive early, because it goes without saying that there’ll be a long queue.
