Valentine’s Day can be a loaded word for many, including yours truly. In all my years of dating, I’ve celebrated it “traditionally” just once with an ex when he bought me chocolates and a sushi dinner date. For the rest of my dating life, I would generally stay in to avoid the reminder that Cupid was a shitty marksman when it came to moi. Last year Cupid gifted me a breakup 4 days before…talk about plot twist!
Well this year, I’m putting Cupid in a chokehold and showing him how it’s done.
I’ve been invited by the great folks at Frankie Wellness for their Valentine Virtual Wellness retreat next week to celebrate this month of love. Frankie is a gamified mental health and wellness app that’s currently in closed beta and aims to enhance emotional well being with the help of immersive wellness journeys that rewards you for consistency.
So what’s a Virtual Wellness Retreat? Over the course of the week, join Frankie alongside a group of experts in sessions that will help you experience emotional clarity, self-love and growth. Whether you’re single or coupled up, there are two versions of the wellness retreat for you to choose from. Check out the agenda below:
Gain greater emotional clarity with our healing and wellbeing experts. Work towards building healthy relationships and falling in love with yourself.
(08/02) Day 1: 1800-Love-Myself – Self-love Workshop
What does it take to really embrace and love yourself for everything that you are? It certainly isn’t loving yourself 24/7. Dig deep and uncover the ugliest part of yourself. Transform this into a source of strength and empowerment. Find out how with our expert – Ambra
(10/02) Day 2: Community Talk Therapy – On Pleasure
With Good Vibes Only and Shy & Curious
Things are about to heat up. It’s time to ignore the stigma and celebrate the importance of self-pleasure. Uncover the ins and outs to achieve the best kind of stimulation.
(12/02) Day 3: Reiki Healing Session
You deserve this time to unwind, relax and find peace within yourself. Hwee is here to help you do that. With her expertise, you’ll find yourself recharged for the night and ready for a good night sleep.
(14/02) Day 4: Bonus Round Valentine Vendetta: Casa Amor

This Valentine’s Day, you don’t have to be alone and stuck in Singapore. Pack your bags and take the VTL (Valentine Travel Lane) with Creative Insurgence and Not.A.Dating.App to Valentine Vendetta Casa Amor. At this Casa Amor, the only advisory is to come with an open mind, travel light and leave any baggage at the door.
