Love is in the air this February, but instead of celebrating happy couples, we’re raising a toast to all of you singles out there! Whether you’re newly single or single by choice, Valentine’s Day would make a perfect opportunity for you to round up your untethered pals or take a solo trip to Singapore.

Treat yourself to the very best 

Usually, we spend so much time satisfying others, when we should be really focusing on ourselves. V-Day is all about love in general after all. So, who better to love on this special day than yourself?
