We’ve all been there, whether we’re the ones bringing someone out for a date or the one who is being taken out. Expectations are aplenty but with a little bit of thought and effort, you can make your other half happy by just knowing what they like, or kicking things up a notch with a fancy surprise.
Here we have a list of activities that will suit every budget from the pricier side to the cheapest.
1. A special movie experience that includes gourmet food at TGV Indulge
If there’s a movie that you and your partner have been waiting for, this is the time to give them a royalty-like service that includes freshly served food by chefs. On top of that, you also get a luxurious time in the movies thanks to extra servicers (that you cannot get in normal cinemas) like recliner seats and even toilet seat warmers. Seriously, this is a must-try if you haven’t already. Movie dates are not as cliché as it seems anymore.

2. Enjoy the city view at Troika Sky Dining
The term “sky dining” is self-explanatory, and it’s also incredibly common among the romantics who don’t mind spending a little more on something. For what you spend on, it’s truly worth the price since you get to experience not only fine dining, but also a view that you will always remember. Take your pick from the choices available: Coppersmith, Fuego, Cantaloupe, Strato, and Claret. There’s something for every couple, so go for what you know you and your loved one will love.

3. Dining In The Dark is sure to tickle your fancy
Self-proclaimed foodies, this is for you. We know how eating out can seem repetitive sometimes, especially when all you do is devour dishes with your partner, but it doesn’t have to be that way. What you get at Dining In The Dark is truly a food experience like no other, because you get a taste of what life is like for the blind. Besides, it’s fun to make full use of your other senses and figure out what is served in front of you without sight, but taste. Because that’s what eating is all about right?

4. Stay active and get a glimpse of nature in the city at the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve
Even though it’s smack in the middle of the city, you still get need to pack your insect repellent and trusty trainers for a quick walk among lush greenery. You no longer need drive out just for a hike, so this is a great alternative if you are (a) not very active but want to get a bit of action or (b) you just want to occupy a weekend with your partner by doing something that helps you two bond emotionally and physically – beyond the bedroom of course.

No art knowledge is required to enjoy art, which is why art galleries and photography exhibitions are so fun. Minut Init – deemed as not just an underground art gallery but a “Art Social” space – is where it’s at when it comes to music, budding artists, designers and creative. Attend some of their events with your partner in crime to see what it’s all about, and perhaps leave together with brighter ideas. A trip to Minut Init is the perfect date place to be inspired.
