In partnership with CapitaLand Mall Asia, CapitaLand, American Express has launched Singapore's only multi-mall loyalty credit card - the American Express CapitaCard. Back by CapitaLand's rewards programme CAPITASTAR, cardholders of CapitaCard will be able to enjoy the highest STAR$ earn rates in the market - these STAR$s can be redeemed for free CapitaVouchers and parking privileges in participating CapitaLand malls.
Earn Rate - 20 STAR$ per S$1 on CapitaCard (up to S$1,200 per month)
You can easily earn 20 STAR$ per S$1 when you spend at any participating CapitaLand mail retailer with your CapitaCard - you do have to scan your receipts using the CAPITASTAR app or any one of the self-service kiosks though. Since you can exchange for a S$5 CapitaVoucher with 5,000 STAR$, this is essentially a 2% rebate on your purchases (since you would have to spend at least S$250 to get a S$5 voucher).
Park for Free at CapitaLand Malls
If you spend at least S$1,200 per month on your CapitaCard, you will enjoy up to three hours of complimentary parking in each one of the participating CapitaLand mall per day. Spend at least S$1,800 per month and you will even get access to the reserved bays for privileged parking.
Welcome Bonus - 50,000 STAR$ (S$50 CapitaVoucher)
Simply get approved and spend at least S$1 to receive a welcome bonus of 20,000 STAR$. If you spend at least S$888 within the first six months, you will receive another bonus of 30,000 STAR$ - total of 50,000 STAR$.
Jade at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore has unveiled a refreshed interior in May 2017 alongside a refocused culinary direction. Following the success of this revitalisation but more importantly, to concentrate on serving quality food and great service, Jade has steered away from the two-seating weekend dim sum buffet menu to introduce the one-seating Gourmet Dim Sum Treasure menus set instead.

I have recently flown on SilkAir from Singapore to Phuket and could not justify paying more than five times more (S$1,300) for a 90-minute flight - the same flight in Economy costs approximately S$240. With that being said, the MI Upgrade is something that people do not talk about often. It is basically a bidding system that allows you to make an offer to SilkAir to upgrade your flight from Economy to Business - if the bid is unsuccessful, you do not pay anything at all and if it is, you pay the amount that you have offered.

Previously known as The Green Market, TGM is Plaza Premium Lounge's only airport lounge in Terminal 2 of the Singapore Changi Airport. TGM is probably one of the best-kept secrets in Changi Airport where airport lounges are concerned - it serves a mixture of Japanese and Korean Cuisine (as well as healthy options) here and it really resembles more of a restaurant than a typical airport lounge. TGM is located on Level 3, next to DFS's Whiskey House in Terminal 2 and it is accessible (and free!) to anyone with a valid Priority Pass Card or Plaza Premium Lounge access - TGM is also open to public and there is a rather extensive a la carte menu (chargeable) to select from.

Publico will consist of the Public Deli (which is now open), a restaurant as well as a bar.
The InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay is the second InterContinental-branded property in Singapore and it is one of the most highly-anticipated luxury hotels to open in Singapore this year.
