There might not be anything monumental happening this weekend, but there are still a couple of fun things that you can do – especially if you’re a foodie! 

Here are five things to do this weekend (Apr 23-25): 

1. Scream for ice cream

There is a new gelato cafe opening in Yishun this weekend! 

Named No Horse Run, the cafe offers some of the most creative locally-inspired flavours.

Classic flavours such as Cereal Mai Pian, Roasted Black Sesame and Lemongrass Pandan are priced at S$4.20 for a single scoop and S$8.20 for a double scoop. Other menu highlights include the Muah Chee gelato (S$5) and Kebaya Blue (S$6).

 

The gelato can also be paired with a Pandan Gula Melaka Waffle (S$6.50) or Buttermilk Waffle (S$5.50). PHOTO CREDIT: NO HORSE RUN

 

The cafe is located at 160 Yishun Street 11 #01-216 Singapore 760160, and opens from 1pm to 2am from Monday to Thursday; and 12pm to 2am from Friday to Sunday.

2. Try some grilled fish

Local TV hosts Marcus Chin and Kate Pang have joined hands to open a Chinese restaurant this weekend. 

Named Tian Tian You Yu (translated as “there’s fish every day” in English), the restaurant will specialise in Sichuan grilled fish, priced at S$36.80.

You can choose to have the fish grilled, fried, or steamed. On top of that, there are 10 flavours to choose from such as mala, rattan pepper and kimchi. 

Tian Tian You Yu is located at 111 Somerset Road #01-13, Singapore 238164. 

3. Get a new movie experience

In a move similar to Black Mirror‘s “Bandersnatch” episode, movies are starting to get more interactive. 

Starting this weekend, viewers who watch the crime thriller Late Shift will get to choose what they want the characters to do – with seven different conclusions. 

All they need to do is “control” the protagonist via the CltrMovie app.

Tickets are priced from S$13, and are only available at GV Funan, GV Plaza and GV Suntec City.

4. Visit an art gallery

On a hill just opposite VivoCity sits a private 100-year-old colonial bungalow that will be hosting a public art exhibition. 

Titled Idle Clouds Upon Reflection, the exhibition will feature rare calligraphy works of Pan Shou in the form of Chinese calligraphy.

The exhibition will be open from 12pm to 6pm daily until May 2, but take note that it will be closed on April 26. Due to safe distancing measures, you have to register by emailing visit.temenggong@gmail.com.

5. Get some macarons at a cheaper price

Until the end of this week, TWG will be having a special one-for-one promotion on their tea macarons which retail at S$2 per piece.
