Time flies and it is already March. While there is still one more week to the March school holidays, there are plenty of things you can do to unwind while having fun.

Here are five things to do this weekend (Mar 5-7):

1. Say hello to Hello Kitty

The annual Sakura event by Gardens by the Bay is back with Sakura Featuring Hello Kitty at the Flower Dome.

Walk through the traditional Japanese torii gate and snap insta-worthy shots with the fan-favourite Sanrio character. You can also marvel at the Sakura floral display which will feature Japanese red-crowned, cherry blossoms and peach blossoms.

The exhibition will be open from 9am to 9pm. Admission charges to the Flower Dome applies. Singapore resident adult tickets are priced at $12 for one conservatory and $20 for two.

2. Drink some alcoholic bubble tea

With alcoholic bubble tea being the latest food trend, popular bubble tea chain Signature by KOI has jumped on the bandwagon with the launch of Rum & Raisin Earl Grey ($9.60) and VSOP Ruby ($14.90).

3. Get some new reads

Local sustainable bookstore Thryft will be holding a book fair over the weekend (Mar 6-7) and bookworms will be pleased to know that there are over 2,000 titles to choose from.
