We are into the last weekend of October which means that Halloween is here! Other than that yearly horror fix, there are also plenty of new openings this week that you can have fun at.

 

Here are five things to do this weekend (Oct 29-31): 

1. Visit a ghost town

The recently opened Museum of Ice Cream will be transformed into a ‘haunted town’ this weekend where guests are invited to come dressed in their best Halloween costumes. 

 

Other than 14 “magical” installations, there will also be ice cream flavours like butterfly “boo”-pea potong, red velvet soft serve and toasted marshmallow ice cream sandwich.

 

Ticket prices start at S$38 and you can purchase them here.

2. Go to “hell”

As part of Haw Par Villa’s reopening plans, the brand new Hell’s Museum will open officially this weekend, just in time for Halloween!

The air-conditioned exhibit, which is 3,800sqm, will explore death and the afterlife is viewed and interpreted across religions, cultures, and the ages. The museum also serves as a prelude to the famed Ten Courts of Hell.

The museum opens daily from 9am to 10pm (closed on Mondays). Ticket prices start at S$18 for adults above 13 and you can get them here.

P/S: The museum does not encourage children under nine to visit, due to the subjects explored.

3. Drink some bubble tea

Dont Yell At Me is the latest Taiwan bubble tea brand to open its doors on our sunny shores.

 

With 380 outlets worldwide, fans will definitely be pleased to know that popular drinks like the Winter Melon Chrysanthemum Tea and Osmanthus Thé Au Lait will be on the menu here too.

 

Located at Orchard Central (#02-24), the store will take on a minimalistic cafe concept. Find out more information here: https://en.dontyellatme.com/

Northshore Plaza, a new mall in Punggol will open its doors this weekend! Promising a “waterfront shopping experience”, the mall is the first sea-front neighbourhood centre to be built in an HDB estate. You can access the mall directly from Samudera LRT station.

 

Notable tenants include well-loved American fast-food chain A&W (opening in 2022), Japanese retail store Daiso as well as a Giant supermarket. 

5. Design your own skateboard

Another major tenant at Northshore Plaza is sporting goods store Decathlon, with a grand two-storey outlet.

 

To celebrate the opening, Decathlon will be hosting complimentary skateboards and helmets design classes over the weekend.  The classes will be taught by Mural Lingo, a technology and arts studio.

 

All you have to do is bring your own skateboard or helmet and you’ll come out of the session with a near gear to show off!
