Work in the CBD? Use Waitrr to Beat Long Lines and Save More Money!

I love working in the Central Business District (CBD) of Singapore - the food options are limitless (there's something for everyone and at every price point)! However, one of the things that drive me crazy is the long lines during lunch. Seriously, walking up to any restaurant or stall between 12:00PM and 1:30PM is painful. Thanks to a friend, I have recently discovered Waitrr which allows me to pre-order my food, make payment via the app and then pick it up at the location without having to queue. If you have not tried the app before, using my referral code 'MAR94817' will give you S$3 off your first order!

The Four Seasons Hotel Singapore is home to one of the most impressive Chinese restaurants in Singapore and this is also where you will find the first L'Occitane Spa in Singapore. What is more important to take note however is that this luxurious property has only just recently completed a massive renovation of rooms and suites to reflect a brand new colour palette that is inspired and influenced by the nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
