Just when we thought Changi Airport couldn’t get any cooler, its brand new, super futuristic Terminal 4 will be opening later this year (with a special open house for the public from 7 to 20 August — all 200,000 tickets have already sold out!). At a special media sneak peek, we were wowed by features like its Peranakan-inspired Heritage Zone, beautiful modern art, thousands of living plants and trees, and in particular its cute housekeeping robots! T4 will differ from Changi’s other terminals with its centralised pre-board security and FAST (Fast-and-Seamless-Travel) features where travellers can manage their own check-in, baggage tagging, immigration, and even boarding, all thanks to state-of-the-art facial recognition software that will set the standard for the world’s airports in the years to come!

Featuring the new Fall/Winter collection that ranges from deep, warm muted tones to vibrant metallics and glitter, all in the their hypoallergenic and 100% biodegradable plastic — this may be one shopping trip you need to make pronto, mama!
