With more than 1,000 partners in the fitness, beauty and wellness industries in Singapore Kfit is an all-in-one platform for those who want to stay fit but lack the time to look for specific studios or locations that meet their needs.
Fitness services available on Kfit include access to gyms, fitness classes such as yoga or crossfit, and sports activities like rock climbing, bicycle rental and laser tag. You can also book beauty services like hair treatments, eyebrow embroidery or facials, and make spa, massage or foot reflexology appointments.
Select your preferred timing, date, type of service and location, and the site will churn out a list of options that meet your criteria, indicating the price and duration of each session, as well as how many slots are left for that given timing.
Each service or class comes with a short description and a list of the available amenities – shower facilities and lockers, for example. There is also a user rating system so you can see how popular it is.
Install the accompanying mobile app, available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store, so you make your reservations on the go.

PHOTOGRAPH: Patchy Factory
Kids grow up way too quickly. Before you know it, they’ve outgrown all their baby clothes. A patchwork memory blanket is a great way to repurpose all the old fabric and turn it into a unique and personalised memento, but most of us don’t have the time to make one for our precious little ones.
Patchy Factory does the work for you. Simply mail them about 30 items of clothing and they’ll stitch together a standard sized patchwork blanket (170cm by 125cm) for $168, complemented with their own fabrics. Unused clothing will be mailed back to you. Alternatively, you can arrange to drop the clothing off at the owners’ home. Just e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
