3 ways to savour food without calories

Eat with your eyes.

1. Catch a cooking-themed production at Resorts World Sentosa

In a first for Resorts World Sentosa, the group collaborates with South Korean director Choi Chul Ki (of NANTA, BEAT and JUMP fame) on CHEF: Bibimbap vs Chilli Crab, its mid-year theatrical production, which follows two cooking whizzes who compete by whipping up a variety of international cuisine. A local adaptation of BIBAP, which premiered in 2009, this action–comedy musical entertains without scripted dialogue. Throw in precise beatboxing, comedy routines and breathtaking breakdancing, and you’ve got yourself a food fest that you won’t feel guilty for indulging in — you might even lose a few hundred grammes laughing so much that you work out your core.
