Coconuts Singapore Lifestyle

In an uptight, conservative-ish country like ours, Singaporeans need to master the art of letting loose. You know, unleashing the our wild side, breaking free of restrictions and generally just having a good time. The scales of our work-life balance may be skewered way towards the daily grind, but when we get the opportunity to revel, boy oh boy, do we paint the town red. In this section, we highlight what’s hip, what’s happening and what’s the latest buzz when it comes to nightlife, music, shopping, showbiz and more right here in our Little Red Dot. If you’re constantly suffering from the Monday blues, we’ll give you a start-of-the-week boost with plenty of cool things to do throughout the week. Don’t just leave the fun times for the weekend – unwind after a long day at work with groovy tunes by local musicians, dizzying beats by DJs, or even a bout of retail therapy. Orchard Road may be getting a reputation as a boring shopping stretch, but we’re here to tell you there’s more to life than buying up the same old mass-produced brands as everyone else on the island. What we love most is highlighting homegrown talent (because everyone should #supportlocal). If you haven’t uncovered the hidden gems in Singapore, you’re definitely in for a treat. We’ve got cool fashion labels designing funky streetwear, charismatic musicians venturing beyond mainstream pop, and an after-hours scene that will keep you endlessly entertained. In other words, bookmark this section to give yourself a better education in Singaporean sophistication, culture, and lifestyle.
