Spend the summer holidays at Robot Kitty

Speaking of embracing your inner kidult, the interactive, science-and-engineering themed Robot Kitty Singapore exhibit will delight Hello Kitty fans of all ages. Purchase a Robot K gaming device figurine at the event entryway to use during the exhibit’s arcade games – trust us, they’re not as simple as they look. Once you accumulate enough “koins”, you can redeem parts and accessories to dress up your figurine. Even if you’re not keen on gaming or on dropping an additional $38 for a Robot K device, there are plenty of life-sized figurines and photo spots for snapping the perfect selfie with childhood favourites like Keroppi, My Melody, and more of Hello Kitty’s Sanrio pals.

Visit Robot Kitty Singapore at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, Hall 403, between 11 and 21 June, 10am to 8pm. Tickets range from $14-$28 before GST.

Beat the humidity with Triumph

The only thing worse than an uncomfortable bra is an uncomfortable bra soaked with sweat. If you’re tired of feeling unsexy (not to mention at little damp) in your otherwise cute lingerie, check out Triumph’s new Light Fascination collection, a summer range that uses light, breathable fabrics without compromising support. For something a little more sensual, with a touch of historical Europe, try Essence by Triumph’s silky new collection.

Available in all Triumph boutiques & counters at major departmental stores and at sg.triumph.com
