Your Chinese New Year Survival Guide

The Singapore Women's Weekly wants you to have a stress-less Chinese New Year. This special website issue will provide you with solutions, tips and advice to keep you on top of all the festivities


The Chinese New Year is less than a month away – and if you’re like me, you’re probably panicking. So, to help you (and myself), we’ve come up with a special “website issue”, see it as your personal survival guide, where all your Chinese New Year needs and questions will be met.

Still haven’t bought new clothes? And really haven’t got the time to scour the aisles for that perfect outfit? We’ve got you covered with up-to-date, great-value options to look fab when the Year of the Pig trots in. And we’ve also got the makeup essentials to get your face ready in minutes (so you have time for the gazilion other things you’ve got to do).

Much of CNY revolves round the dining table. If it’s your turn to host reunion dinner, or you’re thinking of cooking a special dish for that potluck gathering, you won’t want to miss our delicious tried and tested recipes. I especially love Michelin Star-chef Malcom Lee’s Chap Chye and Ayam Buah Keluak recipes – they are as close to my Grandma’s as I’ve ever tasted!

But before that, you’ll want to get your home in order, so don’t miss all our storage tips and sprincgcleaning hacks to help you declutter and detox.

All you need to do is bookmark this page, and you’ll be getting fresh daily content right through to the Lunar New Year. 

We’re here for and with you,
Barbara Koh, Editor-in-Chief
