Yipee, it’s the weekend once again! 

This weekend, there are lots to do for foodies, and getting ready for the upcoming Deepavali festival. 

Here are five things to do this weekend (Oct 22-24): 

1. Busk in the Deepavali mood



While the annual Deepavali light-up started back in September, it isn’t too late to head down to Little India to busk in the festivities. 

Highlights include the main decorative piece, ‘Gopuram’,  which will be used to welcome the joyous celebration of Lights (Nov 4). Besides the lights, there are also food trails, treasure hunts and fun competitions that you can take part in with your family and friends. 

Check out the event calendar and find out more information here.

2. Eat Biryani



In other Diwali festivities, take part in a Biryani Fiesta where you get to savour biryani made by 30 restaurants in Little India at promotional prices. 

This weekend’s offerings include the Tandoori Chicken Biryani by Amber Restaurant,  Arabic Mandi Biryani by Marmari’s and the Tulasi Wow! Claypot Biryani by Thulasi (Veg). 

The fiesta will last until Nov 21. Find out more here

3. Visit IKEA



IKEA is celebrating the 15th anniversary of their Tampines outlet over the weekend, so it’s probably a good time to head down to either of their three stalls for some treats! 

For the food side, you can try IKEA’s new blue donut (S$2.50 for four pieces) and 15 plant balls with soup (S$8), which we’re sure will pack a punch! 

Meanwhile, you can also get up to 15 per cent off selected furniture like bed frames, work desks and chairs, as well as 50 per cent off other selected products.

4. Try a Mie Goreng ‘Cake’



The Mie Goreng “Cake” seems to be the latest food trend that has arrived at our shores. Instead of the usual flour cakes,  home-based bakery Nyonya Pantry Sg’s speciality is in their Mie Goreng Indonesian Style “Cake”. 

The item comprises noodles alongside Indonesian spices, fishcakes, red-shelled boiled eggs, and vegetables. You can choose either the small (S$36) size or  large (S$53), which can feed three and six people respectively. Additionally, you can add on S$12 for six prawns. 

Orders can only be made via WhatsApp at 97831074.

5. Shop at Don Don Donki



Easties, rejoice! There will be another Don Don Donki outlet in the East, this time at Tampines 1 Shopping Mall. Opening this weekend on Oct 22, it will be the Japanese chain’s 11th outlet in Singapore. 

Popular food must-buys include the Mega Beef Bowl, Jonetsu Kakaku Assorted Soup and Yamaya Frozen Mentaiko. You can also get drinks like the Suntory Horoyoi Shochu and Suntory Whiskey Chita. 

Alternatively, if you’re there to stock up on beauty products, be sure to get the Tsubuporori Memoto Onwakan Eye Cream and Jonetsu Kakaku Facial Treatment Mask!
