Great CNY Promos

With the feasting and festivity of CNY comes the ringing of the cash register (and the wheezing gasps of your empty wallet) as we travel and basically have a good time with friends and family.

Free Ice Cream Toppings

If you need something to cool you down after visiting relatives in this baking hot weather (or taking too much XO chili sauce), Llao Llao is giving away free toppings for takeaway packs: Medium pack ->1 free topping, Large pack -> 2 free toppings. Valid from now till 11 Feb 2017.

Clothes Discounts

Needing to get that obligatory, new red shirt/dress you’ll probably only ever wear once anyway? Fashion shop Zalora is offering a 15% discount this month on its range of clothes, footwear and accessories for a minimum expenditure of $120. Promo code: BRANDNEW


Sometimes when we’re on our last nerve and just need some “me time” away from family, a trip to the cinema to watch people blown up/eaten by monsters/hunted by aliens, can do us some good. For CNY, GV offers up escapism (with comedies like Moana and Kungfu Yoga) plus a rooster plushie (gongxi, ni) to go with a large popcorn and coke at $13.80


Alternatively if your family has driven you to drink, here are some really affordable deals courtesy of Brewerkz – starting with $1 wings (yes, just $1):
