Until May 31, with every purchase of a loaf of U Bread ($5.50), customers will receive a complimentary pack of Duke Slice bread worth $4.

A complimentary pack of U Cookies, launched in collaboration with Mdm Ling Bakery, will come with every purchase of issue 804 or 805 of the magazine during the first two weekends of the month at selected newsstands.

Four flavours - green pea, almond, peanut and wholemeal raisin - are available.

From May 7 to 21, the first 50 people who pre-order SG Walker ($22.40, usual price is $28) - a compilation of travel stories by local travel writer Lawrence Chang - online will get them autographed by him.

The books can be collected at the official launch at The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore on May 30.
