It’s the first weekend since COVID-19 measures were eased!
With the easing of COVID-19 measures earlier this week, we are back to being able to gather in groups of 5 (and dining out!), which means more fun this weekend!
Here are five things to do this weekend (Aug 13 to 15):
This August, in the Spirit of National Day, there are seven iconic buildings in the Bras Basah Bugis (BBB) precinct that will be illuminated in red and white, our national colours.
These include the Central Fire Station, National Museum of Singapore and National Design Centre. The buildings will be illuminated from 7.30pm to 12am every night until Aug 31.
If you’re still feeling the National Day mood, then you can head down to the National Museum of Singapore for a free nostalgic experience.
Named Home, Truly: Growing Up with Singapore, 1950s to the Present, the exhibition is open to the public for free until Oct 3.
It features six exhibition spaces including “Open Doors”, “Coming Home” and “Laying the Foundations”. It aims to revisit the moments in the past and present Singapore that has shaped our national identity through photographs and artefacts.
The exhibition opens daily from 10am to 7pm.
Popular local merchant Kunhai, which specialises in Chinese food and snacks, has opened a flagship store in People’s Park Complex.
It sells food items ranging from dry snacks to beverages and even frozen food. Some of their best sellers include the Xiang Piao Piao Meco fruit tea (S$1.75), the Wei Long spicy mala Konjac jelly snack (S$4.85) and the Jin Zai dried beancurd (S$6.50).
The shop is located at People’s Park Complex, 1 Park Road #01-83, Singapore 059108, and opens daily from 9.30am to 10.30pm.
You order a cup of bubble tea, you wait in line and then get served by a ‘bear’.
Yup, that’s exactly what happens to customers at bubble tea shop, BJ Milkytea. The staff will serve customers while donning a bear-like furry glove that’s either black, brown or white, through a literal hole in the wall. What an experience!
Some drinks highlights of the store include Lucky Bear and Fruity Party Tea. The shop is located at Tanjong Pagar Plaza, #01-07, Singapore 082001, and opens daily from 11am to 7pm.
Esplanade is screening a series of performances in the month of August, to celebrate the things that make the nation uniquely Singapore.
The free virtual programme is a live music extravaganza. This weekend, performances from JQ x Zul, KEAT and Joy Alexis will be streamed.
