Budgeting | Lifestyleby Priyadarshini 18 December 2021
Singaporeans love to discuss the high cost of living, yet we rarely take advantage of the freebies that the country has to offer. We don’t have free healthcare, but we do have the following. Grab as many of these freebies as you can to make life on the island a little less pricey. In this blog, we tell you about popular freebies in Singapore.
Popular Freebies in Singapore
Free Vegetarian and Indian cuisine
Several temples in Singapore, including Thye Hua Kwan Moral Society, Singapore Buddhist Lodge, and Central Sikh Temple, offer free vegetarian lunches to the general public. These facilities are normally intended for the less fortunate, so enjoy the food but try to leave a donation if possible. If you want Indian vegetarian food, Anna Lakshmi offers a Pay-What-You-Wish vegetarian Indian buffet. On weekends, call ahead to make a reservation because it may be crowded. There are also food rescue groups where you can join and be notified when there is surplus food available for distribution.
Children are Provided with Free Food and Lodging
If you are travelling with a family, hotels in Singapore often feature a “kids stay free” policy for children up to the age of 12. However, check for any restrictions in terms of the total number of pax. Of course, even if you aren’t on vacation, you may take advantage of the kids-eat-free policy at many family-friendly eateries. On weekends and holidays, kids eat free for breakfast at Swensen’s. Each adult breakfast set includes one complimentary kid’s breakfast set.
Thyme At Aliwal is another family-friendly restaurant. Here kids aged 3 to 9 get one complimentary dish from the kid’s menu with every adult main entrée, such as pizza or spaghetti.
SIM card with Unlimited Data
Once you’ve figured out where the free Wi-Fi hotspots are and how to rely solely on free Wi-Fi, you’ll be able to get by just fine with a TPG free data SIM card. For the first 12 months, you get 2 GB of data per day, unlimited local calls, and 20 SMSes per month for free.
Sporting events are Provided at No Cost
The government is so keen to get Singaporeans to exercise that the Health Promotion Board’s Sunrise in the City initiative has begun to arrange for free fitness courses. Yoga, pilates, K-pop dancing, and Zumba are among the classes available.
Museums that are Free
In many foreign nations, museums open their doors for free in the evenings once a month or every few months. And zillions of people struggle to get in, resulting in enormous lines. Our local museums not only do not have lines, but they are also free to Singaporeans. So, whenever you have a free weekend, go see the 8,000 Southeast Asian art pieces at the National Galler. Or learn about Singapore’s Labour Movement’s 50-year history at the National Museum.
Water-saving kits are Available for Free
Water Wally, the raindrop-shaped mascot of PUB’s water-saving kits, is most likely the world’s most overlooked cartoon character. Installing water-saving thimbles on your faucets will cut your utility cost. PUB’s water-saving kits include a set of thimbles that allow you to control the flow rates of your taps and showerheads.
Charging Stations that are Free
Customers who are running low on battery power can take advantage of free charging stations. Located in some malls and buildings. Mobile charging stations, for example, can be located near the customer service desk on Level 2 of City Square Mall. Wireless charging pads are also available at the new Funan Mall. There are additional free power points at the City Hall, Orchard, Tanjong Pagar, and Kent Ridge MRT stations.
Parking is Complimentary
How can this list be complete without listing the Singapore locations that provide free parking? Many malls in Singapore, including Zhongshan Mall, Jurong Point, and the Singapore Flyer, offer free lunchtime parking from 12pm to 2pm. In an effort to attract the lunchtime population. If you reach a certain minimum amount, you will be able to enjoy free parking at Alexandra IKEA and Downtown OUE Gallery.
These are few popular freebies in Singapore that you can make use of and budget your lifestyle expense.
