Happy birthday, Cancerians!
Cancer: Those born between June 21 to July 22.
This zodiac sign is symbolised by the crab. In nature, crabs are known for their powerful pinches and tough-to-crack exterior that protect a soft and vulnerable centre. This might explain why you’re known to be strong, extremely protective of your loved ones yet mysterious and sentimental, all at the same time. This month, your birthday serves as a timely reminder for more self-love. So, treat yourself, starting with these six credit card deals.
LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort: 30% off tickets & more
Fun fact: Lego is inspired by the Danish phrase “leg godt”, which translates to “play well”. If you’re a fan of Lego, then LEGOLAND must be your mecca. Although it’s located in Malaysia, it is really a mere 20-minute drive from the Second Link Expressway in Singapore. There’s plenty to explore at the theme park — from iconic landmarks made from Lego, to a 4D show and, of course, rides. Playing well is guaranteed.

Bbounce Studio: 1-for-1 fitness class at S$35 (U.P. S$70)
This may seem counter-intuitive, but one way of self-loving, especially with another year on you, is to have a good workout. When you exercise, endorphins are released. And as you know, endorphins are known to be natural painkillers, they also reduce stress, help you sleep better and leave your body feeling energised. We can’t think of a better way to kick off your birthday month, and make room for cake.
