                                              • High S$800 minimum spend requirement

                                              With 6% rebates on dining and online food delivery, the OCBC 365 Card allows you to maximise your savings when you dine.

                                              These cashbacks include 3% on groceries, transport (like Grab), travel bookings, and even recurring bills. The card has a fee waiver after just S$10,000 annual spend (about S$833/month). Given that the card has a S$800 minimum requirement, this fee waiver will not be difficult to obtain.

                                              Riding the popularity of snow skin mooncakes, Carlton Hotel’s Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant also has an assortment of snow skin mooncakes. Newly introduced by Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant is their Mini Sakura Milk Tea Snowskin.

                                              Carlton Hotel has also been working hard designing its mooncake box. The box is made of sustainable materials in the shape of a trapezium. The box opens from the 2 sides and transforms into a display case.

                                              Start ordering their mooncakes from 25 July here!
