With the theme “Guilty Pleasures”, the event aims to challenge festival-goers to reconsider what they know as literary content and explore unexpected ways of storytelling. Highlights include a hybrid tour ‘Singapore Crimes: A Tour’ and programmes for the little ones too. 

Festival Passes start from S$20 and you can get your tickets here.

If you thought you’ve tried the craziest of ice cream flavours, think again. Bee Cheng Hiang has introduced their new – you guessed it – Bak Kwa flavoured ice cream. 

Featuring vanilla ice cream mixed with smoky bak kwa, the ice cream has an interesting texture and milky taste. It is sold at S$10.25 for a twin-pack at NTUC Fairprice, Sheng Siong supermarkets, and selected Bee Cheng Hiang outlets.
