Picnic In The Park

A timeless date idea, picnics in the park are great for couples who intend to spend a relaxing Valentine’s Day with just a small sum. You can choose to make homemade snacks or opt to purchase finger food from food kiosks. Try some kimbap  if you feel like having some Korean food, or have some kebabs if you’re craving for Mediterranean cuisine. Once you’ve got your food covered, don’t forget to bring a picnic mat and some ornaments to give your date that romantic touch.


Cook Boxes from Emporium Shokuhin

If your cooking skills are not up to par, don’t worry, you won’t have to turn to instant noodles. Emporium Shokuhin has a series of cook boxes which makes cooking easy for everyone. If your date enjoys Japanese cuisine, you can opt for the Tonkotsu Ramen Cook box. Should your date prefer something more western, they have roasted chicken leg and baked salmon as well! Each cook box comes with a cooking guide to guide you along. Priced from $15 – $50, each cook box serves up to 2 pax, so you won’t have to break the bank on a Valentine’s Day dinner!
