If the key to her heart is through her stomach, a four-course candlelit dinner at the Ku De Ta Restaurant, should make her one very happy woman. Located atop Marina Bay Sands at Level 57, indulge in the succulent dishes such as shredded Alaskan Crab, Hokkaido Scallop Tempura and Grilled Australian Lamb Rack whipped up by Executive Chef Frederic Faucheux. Coupled with the stunning views from the city below, we’re sure it’ll be an experience she’ll never forget. The seasonal dinner is available from February 7 to 16, 2014. From $168++ per person, with a minimum of two and a maximum of 11 guests. Ku De Ta Restaurant is located at Sands Skypark Hotel Lobby Tower 3. Contact 6688-7688 for reservations and enquiries.

Paris, je t’aime

A moment in time

Watches are a thoughtful gift if your future husband or wife has plenty of calendar obligations, or are simply sticklers for punctuality. Besides, it is said that giving your future partner a watch symbolises the amount of time you hope to spend together. While Karl Lagerfeld x Tokidoki’s Spring 2014 collection looks slightly less romantic, we think it’s perfect for fashion aficionados and all-round fans of the Kaiser. The collection is available at Watch Station International stores, including The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, #B2-93/94. Find more information at www.karl.com.
