From retro skating to watching Korean arts performances, the coming weeking is full of activities to enjoy. 

Here are five things you can do this weekend (May 12-14):

1. Disco dance and skate at Secret Sunrise Singapore’s Afternoon Retro Roller

Take a trip back to the 80s with an afternoon of dancing and skating at Hi Roller Indoor Skating Rink on May 13.

Organised by Hi Roller and global dance and meditation community Secret Sunrise, the Afternoon Retro Roller is an “old school roller disco” event that lets dancers as well as inline and roller skaters groove to the hits of way back when.
