Ideas for a date with your Valentine | The A List

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and love is in the air. But you really don’t need a special day to date or celebrate your partner. If you’re looking for alternatives to an expensive dinner date, The A List has three date ideas for February that might help you impress your muse, without breaking the bank.

Bonus tip from Singaporean poet and photographer Marc Nair, who is married to writer Carolyn Oei: “Bring your date to The Projector. It’s a litmus test. If you’re both not into the same type of movies screened, there’s a chance this won’t work.” Ouch.

The tour is part of #BuySingLit2020, a movement that celebrates stories from Singapore and is supported by the National Arts Council. Details about Uncanny Yishun: A Literary Tour here.
