Weekends are all about having fun!
As we approach the end of August, Singapore’s economy is slowly reopening too which means that there are more fun things to spend your weekends doing!
Here are five things to do this weekend (Aug 27 to Aug 29):
The annual Singapore Food Festival (SFF) is back this weekend (Aug 27) for its 28th run. Taking place in a hybrid format, the theme for this year is “Savour Singapore in Every Bite”.
The festival has four components – live masterclasses, virtual food experiences, SFF food merchandise and partner events and workshops. Highlights include an Ang Ku Kueh marking workshop and a docu-feature of innovative business Kok Fah Farm.
SFF will run until Sep 12 and you can find out more information here.
The Singapore Art Museum’s newest exhibition focuses on a unique topic – gift-giving (and how an ordinary object can be a symbol of connection).
It will feature artworks by local artists such as Salleh Japar and Tang Da Wu, alongside notable international artists like Joseph Beuys and Holly Zausner. The exhibition will be displayed at the National Gallery Singapore’s The Ngee Ann Kongsi Concourse Gallery from Aug 20 to Nov 7.

This one’s for all the durian lovers out there!
A new local card game by Singapore-based board game publisher Origame, was released on Aug 21. Aptly named ‘Durian Dash’, the family-friendly game consists of over 100 playing cards and allows up to six players.
Each round, players will need to visit different plantations to collect their favourite durians to win the game. This includes Mao Shan Wang, Golden Phoenix and Black Pearl.
Durian Dash is priced at S$20 and you can purchase the game here.
With a decrease in physical exhibitions and events due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Singapore EXPO has undergone a rejuvenation.
The halls have now been repurposed for recreational spaces and there are now 20 badminton courts and 2 pickleball courts in the facility. You can book the courts by calling 6252 0777, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aside from badminton courts, Singapore EXPO will also house Singapore’s largest purpose-built go-kart circuit by KF1.
Local bookstore Popular opened its first pop-up store on Aug 14 and it features exclusive products and deals which can’t be found in the usual Popular stores.
Located at Parkway Parade, the store promises exciting promotions and events until mid-2022.
As part of the opening special, customers will receive a S$5 discount voucher with any purchase made at the pop-up store until Sep 3.
