February has arrived and love is in the air. For those with a resident bae by your side, Valentine’s Day is full of expectations for both parties. Doesn’t matter if you’re that hipster couple who frowns upon the holiday – we all secretly love it. But this may also mean spending a truckload on a romantic meal to complete the whole experience.

Beating the V-Day crowd is hard but the worst part is having to part with your ‘hard-earned’ ang pao money when it comes to settling the bill. When you’re stuck in a dilemma between pleasing bae and saving money, a solution is always welcome. So fret not, for we’re here to offer it with 10 eateries that offer massive discounts this February with your DBS/POSB card: 


1. Arteastiq

For those curious about its unique name, Arteastiq is a portmanteau (fancy term for word rojak) of art and tea. Mainly because this boutique house is insta-famous for their gourmet high tea sets and art jam studio for those wanting to put their creativity to work.
