Over-water sprints | SailGP

East Coast Park comes alive on Jan 14 and 15 when Singapore Sail Grand Prix makes its debut in Singapore as part of an eleven-stop global championship. Held at Parkland Green, nine international teams battle it out on hydrofoiling F50 catamarans flying at speeds approaching 100 km/h, just metres from the shoreline.

Teams from Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Great Britain, New Zealand, Spain, Switzerland and the United States will compete for points in six fleet races and one final top-three shootout in the ongoing quest to be crowned overall season winner.

Guests can enjoy a fantastic weekend of racing with ticket options that appeal to every spectator's experience. Options available include private VIP hospitality suites, waterfront access to the race village that includes live commentary and entertainment, cutting-edge, wing-sailed race boats and rare opportunities to interact with SailGP athletes.

Artful interactions | Singapore Art Week

From now on till Jan 15, this 10-day festival will see two significant art fairs taking place at homegrown art platform S.E.A. Focus at Keppel Distripark and the inaugural edition of Art SG at Marina Bay Sands.

Not to be missed is the vibrant Light to Night festival at the Civic District; an Artwalk around Little India and Jo Chiat by Lasalle College of the Arts; as well as the homecoming presentation of Pulp III: A Short Biography of the Banished Book, which was shown at the recent 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia and the Singapore Biennale.

Residents can also explore their connection with the environment as SAW 2023 takes over the island with playful interventions transforming spaces. SAW will also see its first-ever collaboration with the People’s Association to engage with Community Arts and Culture Clubs in five neighbourhoods across Singapore as part of #ArtsInYourNeighbourhood.

Queen of wagyu | Fat Cow

Fans of wagyu will know of the Sandai — the big three wagyus of Japan — Kobe, Ohmi and Matsusaka. Unique on the palates of gourmands everywhere, these three varieties of beef are prized for the depth and finesse of their flavour, intramuscular marbling, and their rarity. Of these, the Matsusaka is one of the rarest for global gastronomes — having been approved by the Japanese authorities for export only recently.

For a limited time only, wagyu connoisseurs will get to savour Matsusaka wagyu at Fat Cow, which will be presenting the “Queen of Wagyu” in a variety of top cuts — ribeye (120g, $198++), ribeye cap (150g, $288++), and striploin (150g, $288++). Lightly dusted with salt and gently grilled on Japanese binchōtan, diners can fully appreciate the beef’s flavour and buttery texture in its purest form.

Fat Cow will also offer the Matsusaka in a donburi ($260++), pairing seared A5 striploin with a careful selection of premium ingredients, like sliced black truffle, caviar, ikura, foie gras, as well as the restaurant’s signature ‘Fat Rice’ to add greater depth, nuances of flavour and texture.

Fat Cow is at #01-01/02 Camden Medical Centre. For reservations, call 6735 0308 or email [email protected]


Whisky house, cocktail bar | Quaich Bar Wanderlust

Do you know where to go for new and exciting tipples? Head to Quaich Bar Wanderlust, founded by the same folks behind the successful speakeasy, The Other Room at Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel and The Other Roof at Ann Siang Hill.

Sequestered at a corner past InterContinental Hotel’s lobby, Wanderlust is fashioned as a retro-luxe globe-trotting lounge where imbibers can escape to corners of the world with its journey of signature cocktails and bar bites inspired by different countries. If you love your dram, there is an extensive collection of at least 100 world whiskies like Bunnahabhain 12 years (Scotland), Tipperary Watershed (Ireland), The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Colheita (England) and Three Ships 10 years (South Africa).

From art deco-styled leather and velvet-clad seats to the gilded cabinets and tasselled chandeliers, the whimsicality of Wanderlust is reinforced by its playful menu and easy-going vibe that seeks to make the enjoyment of whiskies and cocktails approachable to all levels of drinkers. The cocktail list of 19 signatures (all at $25) is primarily centred around familiar flavours of its inspired country while incorporating house infusions, homemade syrups and bar-made bitters, much like its cousin concepts. Contenders include a Korean-BBQ inspired Miyeok Guk with seaweed-washed vodka, makgeolli and drops of sesame oil; a Mojito meets Thai Milk Tea variant; and a Chinese-styled Bourbon Sour variant with prune-infused bourbon, red dates and ginseng syrup - to name a few.
