GaiGai Events Highlight – Weeknight Dinner Date

To create the perfect ambience for a GaiGai speed-dating dining event, the presence of three key elements are crucial – the environment, food and people!

GAIGAI HOLDS EVENT AT 1 Tyrwhitt Bistro Bar

The world’s favourite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May.

– Edwin Way Teale

GaiGai hosted a Weeknight Dinner Date event at 1 Tyrwhitt Bistro Bar on 31st May 2018, where all participants made new friends over a scrumptious dinner.

After registration, participants were assigned to tables of 4 with a good mix of females and males so as to ensure maximum interaction among participants. Regular rotations were made in between meal courses to assure that every participant had an opportunity for interaction with all participants. As the night progressed, participants started to feel more comfortable, and more hearty laughs and chatter gradually filled the room.

You could almost say that love is in the air!

As the event slowly came to an end, participants submitted slips of papers with names of those they wished to know better. If there were to be a successful match between two participants, GaiGai will personally plan a complimentary second date for just the two of them. Talk about a real-life cupid, how exciting it that!

GaiGai works with a wide range of vendors that are not limited to F&B outlets but also engaging outdoor activities and unique workshops such as dance classes and coffee appreciation.

Be sure to check out our events page to see our upcoming events line ups 😉

We hope to see you there the next time!

3 Unique Dining Places in Singapore That You Can’t Say No To

If there’s one thing Singaporeans are known for, it’s definitely how much our life revolves around food. Come on, don’t deny that we don’t spend a good amount of time every week discussing lunch/dinner options and how many other hawker centres can do that lor mee or nasi lemak better. However, when it comes to choosing a unique and fun location for a date or meeting new people, we have no clue where to go!

Here are three fun ideas if you are looking to meet new people outside of your social circle or if you simply need an inspiration for somewhere to hang!

Let’s get right to it.

Get Caffeinated!

Coffee Appreciation

Well for starters, it’s not a dining idea but don’t you love the aroma of coffee and the wonders it does for you on a Monday morning? Instead of a Sunday brunch date, why not start off the Sunday with a Coffee Appreciation session? Step into a caffeinated world while making new like-minded friends and learn about various brewing techniques, the notes and aroma of coffee beans.

When: 10th June 2018, Sunday
Time: 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Where: Sun Ray Cafe, 79 Brighton Crescent Singapore 559218

Spice Things Up on Quayside Isle

Not to fret if you’re not a fan of coffee, there’s something else here for you. What do you think about a spicy invigorating Thai platter on a Thursday, the first hurrah before the real party starts on Friday night? Escape from the hustle and bustle of city life at Gin Khao Bistro, experience a unique short getaway without having to leave Singapore! Indulge in delectable Thai offerings such as Khao Phat Supparod Talay (Pineapple Fried Rice) or the restaurant’s take on Mango Sticky Rice – Mango Sticky Black Rice!

When: 14th June 2018, Thursday
Time: 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Where: Gin Khao, 31 Ocean Way #01-12 Quayside Isle, Singapore 098375

The Classic Italian

Can’t take spices well? Pasta is the answer to everything! Imagine dining in a trendy, buzzy trattoria (an italian food place that’s less formal than a restaurant but more formal than a bar) that embraces the best traits of a classic Italian restaurant and bar traditions. Expect to feast on the rusticity of classic Italian food, Casarecce Pasta with Roasted Vegetables and Pecorino Cheese or Angus Beef Steak with Red Wine Sauce, while engaging thoughtful conversations with new friends.

When: 7th June 2018, Thursday
Time: 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Where: &Sons, 20 Cross St, Singapore 048422

How to Get Ready for a Date in Just 15 Minutes

Make yourself attractive and seductive in a flash.

When you ask a girl on a date, she will think about it days or hours before. She imagines herself indulging in a nice bath, perhaps wearing a face mask before she puts on her makeup. She wants to look and feel good before the date, so she’ll primp and pamper herself.

Unfortunately, you need at least an hour to do that.

Most of us don’t have the luxury of time before a date. Either work, family, or accidents come in between. We’re lucky to have at least 30 minutes and we start to feel frantic if we have anything less than that.

In this blog, we at Beauty Insider will show you how to get ready for a date in 15 minutes or less. We will teach you how to move fast, to psych yourself up, and to turn into a head-turner!

We don’t have much time, let’s go!

1. Build the Basics!

You can be wearing a really pretty dress, but the first thing one is going to notice about you in a masquerade party is your nails! Remember, you’ll be shaking hands AND holding onto wine glasses. So remember to get your nails done too!

GSS lashes

Lastly, remember to do your make-up to perfection! If you are sick of putting on mascara (oh my, don’t remind me of the times I have to remove them after a long day..) or putting on falsies, check out Lash Regrowth here!

All these deals are a few of the many offers in Vaniday’s very special GSS happening from 7th to 9th July! Quick, book these services and prepare yourself for a fun-filled glam night with us on 14th July!

2. Great-Gatsby-Glam it Up!

Remember those prom gowns and glam dresses you bought but have only worn them once? You don’t even remember which box you’ve kept them in! The problem with such beautiful sequin gowns is that we hardly ever get a chance to wear it. We pay a high price for it, but the chances of the material spoiling is actually higher than the chances of us wearing it!

Style Lease, an online platform for you to rent designer gowns and dresses solves this problem. Wait, you may look at the word designer and think expensive! However, there are beautiful dresses for rental for as low as only S$55 for a 4-day rental!

We have selected these Great Gatsby-esque pieces for you!

Gold Glitter Glam

This Sequin High Neck Ruched Side Dress is meant for you to flaunt those legs, ladies! Remember to pair this with high heels! And also, less accessories to neutralise the gold sequin! 😉

If you’re looking to show off your collar bone and a little of your legs, this Eileen Fishtail Sequin Gown by Bariano is the perfect fit! Not to mention, timeless Black and Gold just like what Sam Sparro sang about!

Black Beaded Beauty

If you’re into more conservative pieces, black is the way to go. You can never go wrong with black. Matching of accessories and shoes would be a breeze!

As Great Gatsby as it can get in black! This Sleeveless Beaded V-neck Gown by Adrianna Papell is a safe and smart choice.

At first glance, this Sequined Gown by ABS looks conservative and classy. Just don’t be surprised when you take a look at its back cut-outs! This is a true example of combining conventional cover-ups with cut-out beauty. The straps at the back land just right – at the right places, so it saves you trouble from looking for a reliable pair of nubra! 😉

Shimmer Silver Styles

Its low back would definitely make you stand out in a crowd – especially at a masquerade event! Look at more details on this by Basix Black Label here!

Another more conservative and safe piece, the Embellished Shift Dress by New Look Premium (I know, who knew they had a Premium brand too!) is one safe bet. Pun intended. 😜

Well well, remember Beyoncé during the 2015 Met Gala?  It’s your chance to pull off a mini-Queen B this time during the masquerade party! Sure, it is nowhere as risque as Beyoncé’s piece, but this is a great combination of sophistication and safety! Don’t have to worry about your movements… But wait, it comes with a low back too! Find out more about this piece here!

Didn’t see anything that caught your eye? Click here to head to Style Lease and you can filter through your preferred choice of colours, price range, as well as designers! Before you go, quote GAIGAI15 to get a 15% off your gown reservations during check-out! Happy shopping!


3. Complete Your Cinderella Look!

Okay, if you haven’t heard of Zalora, I don’t know what to say! Seriously, the only issue we ever have (besides whether the seller is trust-worthy or not) when it comes to online shopping is whether the shoes will fit. With Zalora’s hassle-free return & exchange policy, and I repeat, HASSLE-FREE and FREE policy, it just solves this major problem for most of us!

All you gotta do is look through the web as you will, choose your favourite pairs and check out! Wait for them to be delivered to your door step, try them on, and if they don’t fit like it should, simply send them packin’ back into the very bags they came from and drop it off at a Singpost outlet!

The drop-off is literally just droppin’ it off and walkin’ away! You don’t have to fill in complicated forms, make payment according to weight or anything like that! The staff at Singpost would simply collect them and you may continue with your shopping! That is way too easy. On top of that, Zalora is having GSS Sale up to 70% off right now!

Here are some of our favourite picks!

Killer heels are named killer heels for a reason – you strut down the walkway and kill it! I assure you that eyeballs would be following you wherever you go! This black pair would go well with any dress!

Get this pair at S$34.90 here!

This is such a personal favourite. Pair it with jeans, or even a cute summer dress! Get it at S$34.90 here!


GSS pumps

This is such a personal favourite. Pair it with jeans, or even a cute summer dress! Get it at S$34.90 here!

For ladies who don’t do well with elevated heels, you may want to give this a shot. Muted grey colour is one of the trends right now, so are thin ankle straps! Pair this in a formal outfit, think blouse and pants, or even wear them casually with a white maxi dress!

Get this pair at S$29.90 here!

So excited for The Great Gatsby Masquerade Mega Party happening on 14th July! Have you signed up yet?
