It is getting more and more expensive to travel these days. Since Singapore (or most cities for that matter) already has an array of international flavours that are available, let your palate roam around and get a taste of different cuisines in just one weekend.
A pseudo-globe-trotting adventure where you can just transit at any destination you want. Here’s how we let our palates hop on such fun, cheap and sweet ramble!
