It seems like it was only yesterday when we counted down to 2023. Now we’re already at the half-way mark of the year. Welcome to June. Not only are there a whole bunch of new activities in Singapore this month, it’s also school’s out for the kiddos.

To help you make good use of your time, here are 9 new things to do in June 2023 that’ll make sure your holidays are well-spent. 

1. Visit an IG-worthy Italian exhibit at Rose Romance at GBTB

Valentines’ Day may be over, but love’s still in the air. From 2nd June to 16th July, look forward to Rose Romance at Gardens by the Bay. Experience the feels at displays that are inspired by the region of Puglia in Southern Italy. If you think that sounds familiar, it’s because it’s one of the top wedding places in the world. 

If you’re an anti-romantic, don’t worry, this is an IG-worthy photo op surrounded by pretty red roses and trulli flowers – something for the ‘Gram, ain’t we right?

Find pieces for as low as $1 at Huanspace Thrift Event, happening on 18th June. Prepare yourself for a variety of unique styles such as vintage outfits that cater to all sizes. 

However, if you’re on the opposite end of the spectrum and find your wardrobe overflowing with pieces, simply drop off your pre-loved pieces at Huanspace and they’ll put it on their racks for 8 weeks for a new owner to adopt them.
