So that you can save money for your HDB flat.
Dating can be ridiculously expensive in Singapore, we know. We can barely think of saving up for our next date, let alone for our marriage. So how do we survive whilst seeing someone?
Here is your ultimate cheat sheet to dating on a budget.
If you’re low on cash but want to surprise your date with flowers, fret not! You don’t have to spend $40 on a bouquet of flowers from a florist. Just head to Cold Storage. At just $4.90, you can get yourself about five stalks of lilies. For around $7.90, you can even get a bunch of roses!
Just remember to replace the plastic sheet with nice wrapping paper, and you’re good to go!
Disclaimer: I wouldn’t recommend doing for your first date, or more than once a year because chances are, your date already knows where it’s from but is still appreciative of the flowers.
If you do it on your first date, I am pretty sure you don’t have to spend money on flowers again, seeing how you won’t have a second one.
Yes, there is a way for you to bring your partner on a movie date without paying $14 to $24 for a pair of movie tickets.
MovieMob provides free outdoor movie screenings at various locations in Singapore. Hosted once a month, be sure to reserve your slot early! You can cosy up with your partner as you watch movies over a picnic and a bottle of wine.
Well, the other alternative is using the money you’d pay for a pair of tickers to sign up for Netflix. Costing only $10.98, you’d be guaranteed a month’s worth of cuddly date nights at home, where you can Netflix and chill.
Looking for a nice getaway with your partner, but can’t afford to splurge on popular staycation venues like Lloyd’s Inn or Studio M? Actually, you can get a nice and cozy staycation by getting a private room in a hostel for two!
While people generally think of hostels as shady or disgusting, we beg to differ. Most hostels are quite decent and worth every cent you pay.
Guys, if you’re low on cash but you want to bring your date somewhere that serves good food in a decent atmosphere, here is your saving grace. Saizeriya serves Italian and Western cuisine at affordable prices.
The meals are priced around $5 or less, and glasses of wine go for $4 each! If you fork out about $8, you can even get escargots.
Another alternative is Astons, which serves decent portions of Western food. For around $10 or less, you can get chicken chop or chicken cutlet, which includes sides likes macaroni and cheese and potato wedges.
Dating in Singapore can be expensive, but with the right tips and tricks, you’ll be able to survive being in a relationship and not go bankrupt!
