Five things to do this weekend (May 13-16)
Time to unwind!
It’s another long break once again!
Some of you might want to truly savour the Vesak Day public holiday on Monday (May 16), considering that the next public holiday is more than a month away.
Here are five things to do this weekend (May 13 to 16):
1. Engage with larger-than-life art installations at the local parks
Reconnect with nature through As You Were, a new commissioned series by National Arts Council (NAC) that features five interactive artworks situated at Bishan-AMK Park, Jurong Lake Gardens, and Punggol Waterway Park, reflecting seven artists’ imaginations of an endemic world.
From whispering secrets through a larger-than-life paper cup telephone to reliving childhood memories at a seesaw-inspired work, these works will encourage you to communicate and play as we step out of the pandemic.
As You Were is on from now till Oct 30. For more information, click here.
2. Check out OKB’s film photography exhibition
In celebration of the 120th anniversary of the 120 medium format in film photography, OKB, a local photography collective, is hosting the 120X120 exhibition, showcasing 120 photos collated from passionate photographers across the globe during an international open call that OKB hosted back in February.
The exhibition will run from May 14 to 16 at The Glass Hut, 195 Pearl’s Hill Terrace, #01-39A, Singapore 168976 and will open from 1pm to 9.30pm (last admission is at 9pm).
Admission to the exhibition is $5. However, there are other free events in the area such as a retro market and a film prints exchange.
3. Catch a Singapore short at The Projector
Out of movies to watch? Why not head down to The Projector to catch critically acclaimed European films and Singapore shorts as part of the 31st European Film Festival (EUFF)!
Running from May 12 to 26, the festival presents films from three local schools – Lasalle College of the Arts Singapore, Nanyang Technological University, as well as Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
Standard tickets cost $15 while concession tickets for students, senior citizens, and domestic workers cost $13.

4. Help a fur friend
The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) and FairPrice have partnered up to organise an online donation drive for the pets from now till May 31.
If you’d like to help a fur friend, you can choose from seven bundles that comprise a variety of pet supplies such as food and cleaning materials.
The cost of the bundles range between $9.95 and $100.
The donation can be done here.
5. Try the new Jjang! Jjang! burger from McDonald’s
Can’t decide what to have for lunch? Just head down to your nearest McDonald’s and get your hands on its latest menu – the Jjang! Jjang! Burger.
According to our writer, it puts the McSpicy to shame.
You can get the limited-time Korean burger with either a beef or chicken patty at $7.20 for a la carte or $9.20 for a set meal.
