New KrisFlyer Experiences: Dining packages and Esports meet & greet

Dine at Osteria BBR and Kausmo, enjoy a private meal with Chez Kai and Little Social, or meet Esports personality Caps with the latest KrisFlyer Experiences.

Singapore Airlines has launched a new set of KrisFlyer Experiences featuring dining packages at Osteria BBR and Kausmo, private dining experiences with Chez Kai and Little Social, as well as a virtual meet & greet with an Esports personality, because why not. 

Dining experience start from 24,000 miles per couple, while the meet & greet will set you back 16,000 miles per registration. 

What are KrisFlyer Experiences?

KrisFlyer Experiences launched in January 2020, allowing members to redeem their KrisFlyer miles for money-can’t-buy experiences. Past experiences have included F1 Sky Suites, a chartered Points Plane to Langkawi, and a KrisFlyer cruise-to-nowhere.

KrisFlyer Experiences can be redeemed for the member or his/her friends and family. They are non-refundable once redeemed.

Derived from the word “Cosmos” – a system of thought, Kausmo by the Les Amis Group promotes thoughtful living by challenging food norms that bring about unnecessary wastage. They utilise aesthetically filtered fruits and vegetables that could be oddly-shaped, oddly-sized, overstocked or overripe.

They also champion underrated cuts of meat, seafood from small farming communities in regional waters, as well as forgotten edible weeds and flowers.

Chez Kai, a former private dining venue helmed by a Singaporean chef, is the first restaurant in Singapore to serve up Franco-Chinese cuisine. Started in April 2022, the restaurant made its home in a heritage shophouse set in the edge of Geylang.

At the helm of the kitchen is Chef Yeo Kai Siang who trained in Le Cordon Bleu Paris and has cut his teeth in Michelin establishments such as Les Climats in France and L’Enclume in the United Kingdom.

Private home dining by Danial & Dennes, brings the best of Peranakan produce to the table at Little Social. The menu showcases authentic home cooked Peranakan flavours in a stylish and theatrical setting.

Little Social offers a spectacular yet homely, welcoming experience. Be transported into the world of extravagance as you savour and enjoy this social and intimate dining experience.

All experiences are non-refundable once redeemed, and members can redeem as many of each item as they wish, subject to availability. Members will need to contact the vendor to make reservations. 

Is it worth it?

It’s not easy to do a comparison for Osteria BBR, because their usual brunch model is an a la carte menu with a S$68++ top-up for a 90-minute free flow of prosecco, versus the KrisFlyer Experiences set menu with a 120-minute free flow of prosecco. 

But if we take the others as a point of reference, here’s the nett price for 2 person meal at the featured restaurants:

  • Chez Kai: S$391.60
  • Little Social: S$250
  • Kausmo (including kombucha tasting): S$294.26

This gives you a value of:

  • Chez Kai: 1.4 cents per mile
  • Little Social: 1.04 cents per mile
  • Kausmo: 0.92 cents per mile

Chez Kai aside, the valuation is well below what I’d be willing to accept– particularly since these aren’t exclusive “money can’t buy” experiences.

Meet & Greet with Caps12 Nov, 8 p.m16,000 miles
KrisFlyer presents an exclusive opportunity for you to seek inspiration on how you can up your gaming skills in this hour-long virtual meet and greet session with Danish League of Legends esports player Caps from G2 Esports. Get insights on Caps’s professional playing career, and possibility gain some valuable in-game tips from one of the best in the world and take the time to ask all your burning esports questions

For 16,000 miles, KrisFlyer members can redeem a 1-hour virtual meet & greet session with Caps. 

Caps? I hear you say. Why, I’m unfamiliar with that name. Was he a Nobel Laureate, perchance?

Not quite. Caps is a member of the G2 Esports team, playing an obscure and not-at-all-well-known game called League of Legends. Participants can look forward to a riveting agenda including: 

    • Introduction
    • Fireside Chat between Caps and Joakim Gomez
    • Sharing session by Caps
    • Q&A Session & Closing Remarks

Is it worth it?

No. We all know the one true Esport is Kane’s Wrath.

Conclusion

The latest batch of KrisFlyer Experiences doesn’t quite hit the highs of the recent Points Plane and Singapore F1 Sky Suites Packages, but I suppose they’ll have their takers nonetheless. 

As a reminder, Singapore Airlines is extending any expiring miles until at least January 2023, which means you don’t need to spend them just yet. It’s tough to redeem long-haul award flights for the rest of 2022, but if you’re willing to book one year out, then making plans for late 2023 isn’t the worst idea either.
