Five things to do this weekend (Feb 18-20)
This weekend is filled with all sorts of new and exciting exhibitions.
The March Holidays might still be a few weeks away but there are already plenty of places to visit to appreciate and learn more about; from history and science, to photography and anime!
Here are five things to do this weekend (Feb 18-20):
1. Visit Fort Siloso
Fort Siloso in Sentosa has been officially gazetted as a National Monument!
And what better day to commemorate it than on Total Defence Day (Feb 15) a few days back.
So take this weekend to visit Singapore’s best preserved fort since the 19th century and learn more on how Singapore fell to the Japanese 80 years ago.
The seven hectare gazette boundary comprises 11 structures, including three tunnel complexes, four gun emplacements and several key defensive structures. Find out more here.
2. Attack the titans
Japanese manga series Attack On Titan (AOT) has been making waves in Singapore, with its final season released on Netflix recently.
To ride on the wave, the Singapore ArtScience Museum is holding Attack On Titan: The Exhibition from Feb 19. The exhibition will feature over 180 artworks by Hajime Isayama, the creator of AOT. There will also be new artwork that has not been displayed anywhere else in the world.
Ticket prices start from S$14 and you can get them here.

3. Support young photographers
Thirteen young photographers have prepared a visual interpretation of their idea of ‘home’ after a month-long mentorship program in Dec 2021. Their photos are now part of an exhibition held at Objectifs for the Shooting Home Youth Awards (SHYA) programme which will run until Mar 6.
The programme is a platform for youths ranging between 15 to 23 years old to develop their photography skills and exhibit their work publicly.
The exhibition will be held at 155 Middle Road from 12pm to 7pm on Tuesdays to Saturdays, and 12pm to 4pm on Sundays.

4. Explore the Singapore Discovery Centre
After a major revamp over the last two years, the Singapore Discovery Centre has launched its new immersive exhibits gallery: “Sandbox”. It is part of an array of multi-sensory activities with an educational twist to leave participants more learned.
On top of that, there is also a Black Lake Facility: Escape Room that covers two storeys and has 13 different rooms of varying difficulties. You can also take part in a Laser Tag activity or watch a blockbuster film at the iWERKS Theatre.
Ticket prices start from S$8 and you can get them here.
Singapore Discovery Centre is located at 510 Upper Jurong Road, and is open from 12pm to 7pm on weekdays, and 11am to 8pm on the weekends.
5. Eat some sushi-shaped gelato
Yes, you read that right! Sushi-shaped gelato is a thing at Threepointtwo, a cafe located in Outram.
Made to resemble a sushi platter, you can get the sushi-ice cream in a set at S$11.90. It comes with four types of sushi: Salmon (watermelon sorbet and yuzu sorbet), Tamago (mango sorbet and coconut sorbet), Lobster salad gunkan (rose lychee gelato and vanilla gelato wrapped in seaweed) and Tuna inari (pistachio gelato and vanilla gelato wrapped in inari skin).
