The weekends are upon us yet again and it’s a perfect opportunity to take a break from the daily grind of work and study!
If you have no plans yet, fret not, because we’ve got you covered.
Here are five things to do this weekend (Jul 9 to 11):
After nine months of upgrading works, Haw Par Villa finally reopened earlier this month.
Some of the upgrades include restored sculptures and a new projection mapping at the main entrance. There will also be enhanced lighting at night.
Haw Par Villa opens daily from 9am to 10pm, with the last entry at 9:30pm.
The final season of multi-sensory trail Rainforest Lumina is taking place at the Singapore Zoo now.
There will be over 10 multi-sensory zones, with many interactive storytelling elements. Highlights include a digital thunderstorm as well as a laser and projection display.
An adult and youth ticket costs S$18, while children and senior citizens pay S$14. Rainforest Lumina is located at the Singapore Zoo, 80 Mandai Lake Road Singapore 729826.
It opens on Thursdays to Sundays, Public Holidays and Eve of Public Holidays from 7.15pm to 12am. More information can be found here.
Fast food chain Burger King launched the latest item on their menu on Jul 5 – the Ultimate Kakiage burger, where its buns are replaced with kakiage, a fried vegetable patty.
The burger is available in stores islandwide or via the BK app under the ‘Limited Time’ category.
A Kakiage burger value meal would cost S$12.90, while an upsized meal costs S$13.50.
If the vegetable burger is not something you fancy, then you will be pleased to know that Burger King is bringing back its Rendang burger from next week!
After closing last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sentosa’s Adventure Cove Waterpark (ACW) finally reopened its doors earlier this year.
Highlights of the waterpark include the Riptide Rocket, Whirlpool Washout and Adventure River. As part of its reopening promotion, Singapore residents can get tickets at a discounted price, which ranges from $20 to $38.
Visitors are advised to maintain safe distancing at all times and can only remove their masks while queueing for and during rides. You can purchase your ticket online here.
This year’s National Day Parade (NDP) theme song was released last week, along with news of a physical parade at the Marina Bay floating platform.
Titled ‘The Road Ahead’, the song pays tribute to the adversity Singapore has faced throughout its history and the current COVID-19 pandemic.
In the music video, there is a combination of live-action and animated scenes, starring local singers Sezairi Sezali, Shye-Anne Brown, Linying, and Shabir.
