Meanwhile, at Gain City Ang Mo Kio, BTO customers get 15 per cent off all Igloohome smart locks that allow property owners to grant access to visitors remotely using time-sensitive codes and Bluetooth keys.

For properties without Wi-Fi, the locks work offline through cryptography and synchronisation.

The secret behind the perfect pineapple tart is the butter.

Shopping guide

Using butter from SCS and two other brands to make the tarts with the same recipe, a blindtaste test was conducted at various public spaces involving 300 participants - of which 65 per cent felt that the best tarts were made using SCS' butter.

Produced and made in Australia, all of SCS' velvety butter is made from the milk of grassfed cows and contains no artificial colouring, additives, preservatives or hormones.
