The WeekendGoWhere team help you to suss out what's good at The Dim Sum Place! Halal-certified and affordable, this place is sure to bring you on a gastronomic adventure.  Source: The Dim Sum Place Brought to you by the team that started The Ramen Stall (literally opposite of them), this new venture brings you Cantonese staples with a local twist. Think vermicelli roll with rendang (Cantonese and Javanese? Say what?) However, we must say that the team was looking for classic dim sum dishes so here's what we got.

You will want to refer to these credible travel review platforms before your next trip!

We have all been there: you've booked your trip. You're excited... but also anxious. What can you expect? What can you do there? Do the locals speak English? What do you eat? What are the dangers to look out for? With the existence of travel review platforms and forums, there's no reason for you not to do your research and have a peace of mind wherever you are going! Travel Community It's a no-brainer for any traveller. There are so many online travel communities out there, a well-known one being TripAdvisor. TripAdvisor gives you real and genuine reviews from travellers who have stayed at or visited any countries you can think of!

Some reviews even give you some tips and tricks, so be sure

Winner of the National Day quiz on 2 August 2017

Last Wednesday, we held a giveaway in conjunction with National Day. We asked you: Here are the correct answers to the questions: 1️⃣ There are 10 public holidays in Singapore! They are New Year's Day, Chinese New Year, Good Friday, Labour Day, Vesak Day, Hari Raya Puasa, National Day, Hari Raya Haji, Deepavali and Christmas Day. Apparently, many of the answers we received forgot National Day as one of our public holidays 😂 ️2️⃣️ Vanda Miss Joaquim (an Orchid) was cross-bred by Agnes Joaqium, an Armenian avid gardener and horticulturist who resided in Singapore in the late 1800s. Agnes Joaquim spearheaded the cut-flower industry. The orchid made its maiden public appearance in Singapore at the annual Flower Show in April 1899 and won Joaquim the first prize for the rarest orchid. 3️⃣️ Marina Square was previously known for the long flight of stairs that has now been demolished. Still remember those days you'd sit there and watch the fireworks durin

Ways you might not have thought about on how to save money for your next trip

Wake up. Get ready. Get to work. Coffee. Start work. Go back home. We're pretty sure many of you are stuck with this mundane routine every day especially when you are stuck at a desk-bound job. It's a no-wonder why Singaporeans are the most frequent travelers — we find every possible reason to get away! To help you out, here are some of the ways (that you might not have thought about) on how to save money for your trips.

To make it easier, save the bigger denominations, like $1s and 50¢s when you find them in your wallet into a piggy bank. We promise that if you keep it up, you'll save at least $300 within a week!
