Stop everything you’re doing now and listen up, ’cause this piece of news is gonna blast your Monday blues away — Shake Shack and A&W are debuting/returning to our shores next year at Jewel Changi Airport.

Yep, looks like 2019 will be a great year to ditch your diet, with the debut of the famous American burger joint and the return of everyone’s favorite nostalgic fast food chain with its iconic root beer float and curly fries.

The Straits Times first announced the news yesterday about Jewel Changi Airport, which is slated to open in 2019. A seven-story structure brimming with lush greenery, it will connect to Terminal 1 and feature over 280 shops, including familiar brands like Jumbo Seafood and Shaw Theatres.

The launch of this new airport addition in itself is pretty exciting, making the world’s best airport even better — if that’s possible — but really, we know y’all are gonna be flocking over to the East for a taste of Shake Shack’s burgers and shakes, followed by ice cream and waffles for dessert at A&W.

Not much else has been revealed, so watch this space for updates.
