Five things to do this weekend (March 18-20)
End the March Holidays with a bang!
The March Holidays are coming to a close, but that does not mean there’s no reason for you to go out and have some fun.
Round up the week with these exciting activities! Here are five things to do this weekend (March 18-20):
1. Take pictures with a giant lollipop
Located at Changi Airport’s T3 Departure Hall lies the largest Chupa Chups lollipop display in Singapore. Wrapped with a 14m-by-14m wrapper for a strawberry-flavoured look, you can now snap exciting pictures with this four-metre tall Chupa Chups lollipop!
There are also other Chupa Chups-themed installations such as a playground, carousel and a garden. To top it off, there is also a pop-up retail store available for visitors to explore from now until May 3.
2. Visit HarbourFront Centre
From now till the end of March, HarbourFront Centre will be turned into an origami world! There will be many larger-than-life origami-themed installations in an Enchanted Origami Garden including a Neon Butterfly Origami Wall and Glow-in-the-Dark Garden.
What’s more, the mall is offering 1-for-1 deals at many stores such as Shi Li Fang, Tuckshop and Linen Gallery!
3. Say goodbye to Madagascar
As you’ll probably have heard by now, the Madagascar Zone at Universal Studios Singapore will be closing permanently on Mar 27. So, it’d be timely to spend this weekend participating in its farewell celebrations that include float parades and meet-and-greets.
It will also be one of the last few chances to ride the Madagascar: A Crate Adventure water ride and King Julien’s Beach Party-Go-Round carousel.
Well, at least we get to look forward to the brand new Minion Land and Super Nintendo World that will be opening within the next few years.
4. Explore a new heritage trail
There is a new heritage trail at Sentosa where you can explore three thematic routes stringing together 30 historic sites in Singapore.
For example, the Kampongs and Barracks route takes you back to the 1600s, while the 4km-long Forts route explores some remaining wartime remnants of World War II, such as the recently gazetted Fort Siloso. Otherwise, if you’re more interested in recent history, then the Memories of Sentosa route is for you!

5. Eat some Pepper Lunch rice burgers
Yes, Pepper Lunch burgers are now a thing!
Available as a takeaway option at the basement of 313@somerset is Pepper Lunch’s new kiosk in the mall that launched earlier this week (Mar 15). Unlike its regular dine-in stores famous for their sizzling hotplates, the kiosk offers new rice burgers and bowls.
You can choose from U.S. Beef (S$6.80), Chicken (S$6.50), Salmon (S$7.50) and Beef Hamburg (S$7.50). The Pepper Rice Burgers consist of a seasoned protein of your choice, lettuce and mayonnaise, rounded off by seasoned rice patties.
