“Singapore is so hot.”
Yes, we can’t help it. How do our bodies cope with the heat? We perspire and then we whine about our sweat drenched outfits and ruined makeup in the day. So how? Stay indoors, or simply go out at night!
When it is perpetually summer in Singapore, there is no way to escape the heat, but we think we can alleviate your heat stress a little. At the same time, you can still look good and pose for your #ootd or #wiwt, with these 5 cool recommendations.

The highly anticipated man-made marvel has finally opened its doors on 17 April 2019 to the public after 5 years in the making! Home to the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, tens of thousands of trees, plants and shrubs, an indoor mirror maze and playground, a movie theatre and over 250 retail outlets, you can easily spend a day exploring this one-of-a-kind lifestyle hub. Think the airport is only a point of transit? You might want to think again.
JEWEL is even more spectacular at night when the waterfall transforms into a light-and-sound show. Go up to level 5 and take in the sights of the urban indoor forest from on high, or even better, choose to dine underneath the stars.

If you’re still not over your recent Europe trip, head over to Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall (VTCH). Its neoclassical architecture is just what you need to feel like you’re on the other side of the world again.
VTCH comprises two blocks of buildings which were constructed more than 43 years apart, in 1862 and 1905, and joined by a clock tower. As the oldest performing arts venue in Singapore and a national monument gazetted since 1992, it is worth paying a visit to bask in its elegant atmosphere.
