REST AND RELAXATION RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR DOORSTEP.
The weather’s just crazy this July. Beat the heatwave by going on a poolside getaway! You won’t do much better than checking out Amara Sanctuary’s Larkhill Terrace Suites in Sentosa. Our suggestion: Gun for one of its 12 couple suites that have direct access to the 45m infinity edge pool, which also boasts spacious courtyards, an outdoor bathtub and a day bed perfect for lounging. And there’s no real need to leave Sentosa (or the Amara) for meals. Its room service menu is one of the best we’ve had. Top picks? The seafood pasta and garlic mussels. So good!
Rates start from $488++.

Our favourite web-shooting red-and-blue acrobat is back to take over the box office, and this time, Iron Man’s going to be accompanying him as his mentor. This flick focuses on an eager Peter Parker learning the ropes from his role model, Tony Stark, and what it truly means to be a hero. Sure, Tony did give him a super-cool suit (with wings!), but the schoolboy still has a lot of life lessons ahead of him.If there’s one we’ll never forget in any Spidey film, it’s that – say it with us – with great power…
