Waku Ghin Seafood

I tried a 2 Michelin-starred restaurant for the first time – Waku Ghin | 65CityGirl

As a person who lives to eat, I am always on the lookout for food that will blow my mind. Other people have bucket lists for travel, my bucket list is for food – more specifically, ticking off the restaurants on the Michelin list. This year on my birthday I finally got the opportunity to pay a visit to Waku Ghin (newly minted 2-star restaurant … Continue reading I tried a 2 Michelin-starred restaurant for the first time – Waku Ghin | 65CityGirl

Dress up in fabulous designer gowns for less than SGD 200! | 65CityGirl

Have a special occasion to attend and you would love to dress up just for the night in one of those gorgeous designer gowns you see in magazines but not so sure about the hefty price tag?  I have a solution for you!

Rent a designer gown instead of buying one! With quite a number of businesses in Singapore just catering to this specific need, it would be as easy as shopping for your regular dresses. Be it a formal work event, gala dinner, wedding or ROM, these shops have a wide range of designer collections and sizes so that any one can find their ideal dress for any occasion.

I was looking for a ROM dress when I came across this fantastic business model. Since the concept of affordable designer dress rental is not something very common among my friends, I thought sharing about the four businesses I have come across would be useful for other Singaporean women out there looking for THAT special dress.

Keeping to an affordable budget of SGD$200 for a dress (super affordable compared to the rates bridal studios try to charge you for tacky looking gowns), I have taken the liberty to pick out a variety of dresses from their websites to give an idea of what you could get for that very reasonable price:

Cape Sienna Phuket Hotel and Villas

With plenty of insta-worthy lounging areas (various seaside restaurants, poolside bar, and lounge pool) throughout the resort, one actually might not need a private pool after all.  The room may not come with a private pool, but for the price, I think a open-air jacuzzi works too.

Rates start from SGD 84 for a Sea View Studio and SGD 174 for a Honeymoon Suite
