September holiday deals


Recent months may have turned our sense of work-life or school-life balance upside down. Was there even a June holiday? Where did that go?

But the good news is that the September holiday (5th-13th September 2020) have arrived – a first semblance of an actual term break in a while. For young families and students, here are some of the best September holiday deals to fill up the week with some extra fun while saving money: 


1. Free custard buns for students at Tim Ho Wan

Most of us have dined at the Michelin-starred cha chaan teng Tim Ho Wan. You might have noticed that they have almost everything you’d anticipate at a dim sum restaurant – except for those delectable, oozing, IG-worthy custard buns

That’s about to change, with the restaurant chain kicking off the school holidays with a complimentary 3-piece custard bun dish for students. Steamed and fried versions are both available in this exclusive preview, limited to 100 buns per day per outlet – students just need to flash their student passes at any of their outlets to get it.

Promotion period: Until 13th September 2020

September Holiday Deals - OverEasy

“There’s no such thing as a free meal” doesn’t apply at OverEasy. 

The restaurant at One Fullerton looks like an American diner straight out of the 60s, complete with checkered floor tiles, vintage furniture and retro cinema signs near the counter. But stellar ambience aside, it’s offering yet another reason for young families to visit this period: with every adult main course ordered, kids under 12 get to dine for free

Complimentary dishes include fun-sized versions of their signatures like Momma’s Chicken & Waffles and The OverEasy Cheeseburger. View OverEasy’s menu here.
