Go Labor-less this Labor Day Weekend! - Dine

May Day, May Day! Labor Day is here! With its origins in wanting to allow hard workers who put in long hours to enjoy a well-deserved rest, this holiday is the perfect excuse for us to pamper and rejuvenate ourselves. And have we got the perfect lineup in store for you!

Since we’re lucky enough to be blessed with two long weekends in a row, we’ve decided to extend our popular stay-cation series for another installment on the best of what you can do without leaving the shores of Singapore.

Here are some more ideas for the long weekend. Enjoy!

Dining (and hands-on)

Die-hard foodies and self-professed gourmands alike have been waiting for this period to arrive—the World Gourmet Summit 15th Crystal Anniversary is now in full swing! For those of you with a packed work schedule, take advantage of the long weekend to go crazy on all that the WGS has to offer.

In particular, don’t miss the highly-popular Culinary Experience at Miele sessions involving the cuisines of chef Manish Mehrota (Apr 28, Thur, $348+), whose signature classic contemporary Indian cuisine is truly unforgettable, as well as that of chef Dietmar Sawyer (Apr 29, Fri, $$388+), who specializes in incorporating exotic flavors and ingredients to stunning results in his creations.

Hankering to get up close and personal? Experience a memorable hands-on session with one of the world’s most passionate champions for organic farming and award-winning chef Anthony Worrell(Apr 28, Thur, $68+). For yet more of the festival’s highlights during its two-week run, check out our recommendations on the festival’s highlights to determine which sessions you shouldn’t miss out on.
