The best places to get a bespoke suit in Singapore

Every man has fantasies of suiting up like Don Draper or Harvey Specter, conducting a business lunch and, come sundown, downing a shot of fine whisky. But you won’t get that special fit from an off-the-rack suit. No, you’ll want to head to a bespoke tailor. A good suit is an investment – if you take care of it (and your waistline), it can last 10 to 20 years. Before you visit a tailor, be mindful of three key points: shape, fit and fabric. And be patient. Expect at least 20 measurements to be taken and two to four fittings. It can take up to 50 hours of manual work – which translates to weeks or months before you hang the final product in the wardrobe. But it’ll be worth it, trust us.

Boulder Movement My arms are sore and my thighs are quivering. Yet I can’t let go. Not unless I want to free fall three metres or so on to the, admittedly, cushy crash pad below – but I’m too chicken to do that. I’m two-thirds through a bouldering problem in Boulder Movement ($30/single entry, $148/month) and, despite the aches, I can already see the appeal of this sport. Bouldering is very much like indoor rock climbing, except the former is stripped down to its raw essentials – there are no ropes and harnesses involved. All you need is a good pair of climbing shoes, a bag of chalk, some fundamental techniques and a whole lot of guts to take on a bouldering problem (the path a climber has to take in order to complete the climb). Conveniently located in the CBD, Boulder Movement is the newest entry into the burgeoning climbing gym scene in Singapore. Founded by climbing enthusiasts Jansen Ko, Lwee Jia Wei and Joe Fu, the gym positions itself as a beginner-friendly bouldering-only facility with over 30 metres of wall, lengthwise. The walls are no higher than four metres –which sounds short, but trust me, it’s certainly high enough to experience the thrill of climbing without any safety gears. Bouldering problems are categorised by different climbing abilities: white tags BM1-6 are for beginners, blue tags BM6-16 for intermediates and red tags BM17-25 are for the advanced – a section of the wall is refreshed every two weeks so you’ll never get bored. First-timers can join

The best HIIT gyms in Singapore

For those who dislike spending hours in the gym, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is the way to go – you work hard for a set amount of time with minimal rest which raises your metabolic rate for up to 48 hours. Yes, this means you’ll be burning fat even when you’re lounging in front of the TV later. Here are five boutique gyms to get your heart rate up faster than you can say HIIT.
