You can try some Singapore-flavoured ice cream or bite into the ultimate cheesy burger this weekend.
We’re nearing the start of a new month in May and thankfully, we have the Labour Day long weekend to get an extra dose of fun and rest.
Here are five things to do this weekend (Apr 30-May 2):
Starting this weekend, Gardens by the Bay will be holding a glass sculpture exhibition that is set to run until Aug 1.
Dale Chihuly: Glass in Bloom will feature 25 large-scale installations and over 80 pedestal sculptures and two-dimensional works by renowned American glass artist, Dale Chihuly.
The exhibition will be held at the Flower Dome, Cloud Forest, Gallery, Outdoor Gardens and Gallery at Bayfront Pavilion.
The exhibition is open from 9am to 9pm on Monday to Friday, and 9am to 10pm on the weekends and public holidays. You can get your tickets to the exhibition here.
Singapore’s very own Museum of Ice Cream (MOIC) will only be opening in August. But starting this weekend, you can already get a preview of the full experience at MOIC’s free pop-up retail showcase.
Held at Design Orchard, the exclusive pop-up will feature a Lifeguard Hut and waffle-cone palm trees setup.
You can also check out MOIC-themed products from Kydra Activewear, The Ice Cream & Cookie Co, Artisan Sense and Brewlander.
The pop-up retail showcase will take place from Apr 30 to May 27 and is located at 250 Orchard Road, Singapore 238905. The pop-up will open from 10.30am to 8pm daily.
The highly anticipated movie, Precious Is The Night, starring Singaporean model-influencer Chuando Tan will be exclusively released at Cathay Cineplexes theatres from Apr 29.
Set in the 1960s, Precious Is The Night is a murder mystery thriller that is triggered by the death of a lady from a mysterious wealthy family
Co-produced by Singapore’s mm2 Entertainment and Taiwan’s Pure Films, this movie also stars local artistes Tay Ping Hui, Xiang Yun and her real-life daughter Chen Yixin, as well as Taiwanese actresses Nayeli and Chang Tzu-lei.

McDonald’s Singapore has launched its latest menu special, including a brand new Pizza McShaker Fries (from $3.50).
If you are more adventurous, you can try the new Chick ‘N’ Cheese burger (from $6.40), which is made up of a cheesy mozzarella patty, a crispy chicken patty and a sweet tomato chilli jam between two sesame buns.
The popular Ha! Chicken Drumlets (from $2.40 for 2 pieces) will also be making a return to the menu and will be a part of the Happy Sharing Box D (from $7.85).
If you are looking for a fun retail therapy experience, then you can head down to the newest IKEA Jurong outlet that opened on Apr 29.
The outlet will go cashless with 22 check-out counters across its three floors. There will also be one-stop kiosks in the store for a seamless shopping experience.
One of the highlights in its restaurant includes the Click and Collect service where you can order your food before reaching the restaurant. There is also an interactive digital wall where customers can ‘paint’ by waving their hands or legs.
