Five things to do this weekend (Apr 29-May 3)
Cheers to the four-day long weekend ahead!
With a four-day long weekend just around the corner, there’s more time for you to unwind.
For the muslims, there is plenty of time to get ready for the festive period!
Here are five things to do this weekend (Apr 29 to May 3):
1. Check out SGABF 2022
Head down to the Singapore Art Museum at Tanjong Pagar Distripark to check out this year’s Singapore Art Book Fair (SGABF), a multi-day event celebrating contemporary art books and zines by local and international creatives.
Set to run from Apr 29 to May 1, a total of 93 exhibitors will be showcasing their books and prints, some of which will be available for purchase.
SGABF will be held at 39 Keppel Road, Singapore 08906 and will open from 12pm to 8pm.
2. Take Insta-worthy pictures at MHC’S light installation
Need a good place to snap some pictures of your Raya outfit? Why not try the Malay Heritage Centre (MHC)!
MHC is hosting an outdoor light installation titled Rainbow Connection II which features a total of 500 suspended solar light modules, co-created by local artist Lee Yun Qin and underserved communities.
Resembling lanterns in the sky, the picturesque installation will surely make for an Insta-worthy backdrop.
The installation will be on display from Apr 29 to May 29, from Tuesdays to Sundays, from 10am to 9pm.
MHC is located at 85 Sultan Gate, Singapore 198501.
3. View artworks at ION Art Gallery
Show your support for women artists by checking out the Gorgeous Transformation Art Exhibition 2022 at ION Art Gallery.
The 57 artworks, which will be exhibited from Apr 30 to May 8, will honour the unconditional love and care that mothers show to their children and families as well as the sacrifices of all frontline workers amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ION Art gallery is located on Level 4 of ION Orchard and is open from 10am to 10pm.
4. Visit Malaysia for a short getaway
Since we have such a long weekend ahead, why not take a breather and make a short trip to Malaysia?
As Malaysia lifts most of its COVID-19 restrictions from May 1, entering and getting around will be much more convenient for travellers.
Some relaxations include the scrapping of the MySejahtera app and the removal of pre-departure and on arrival testing protocols.
5. Catch some Hari Raya-themed films on Netflix
If you’re planning on staying home this weekend for Raya celebrations, a good way to bond with your friends and family this festive season is to watch movies.
Some Hari Raya-themed comedy films you can catch include Syif Malam Raya, Raya Tak Jadi, Anak Bulan, I Know What You Did Last Raya, and Hantu Kak Limah.
These movies will surely give you a good laugh!
