Five things to do this weekend (Sept 10-12)
Here’s five activities to treat yourself with this weekend.
This weekend is all basking in the mood for the upcoming Mid-Autumn festival which takes place later in the month. But if mooncakes and lanterns are not your thing, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered too!
Here are five things to do this weekend (Sep 10 to Sep 12):
1. Celebrate Mid-Autumn
The light-up for the Chinatown Mid-Autumn Festival took place earlier this week, with 900 lanterns flooding the streets of Chinatown between Eu Tong Sen Street and North Bridge Road.
Along with mooncakes and jade rabbits lanterns, you can also check out the towering 12m-tall centrepiece depicting the Chinese goddess of the moon.
If you prefer staying home, there is also a virtual heritage trial that you can take part in, which will highlight the landmarks and cultural aspects of the precinct. Find out more here.
2. Try a mala mooncake
Bored of the same ol’ mooncake flavours? Then you’ll be happy to know that Peach Garden has released its first-ever Premium Mala Paste with Assorted Nuts (Beetroot-flavoured Skin) Mooncake!
Priced at S$71.69 for four pieces, these mooncakes have the right balance of spiciness and fragrance. You can also check out other flavours such as the Premium Jackfruit Paste with Melon Seeds and Healthy White Lotus Paste with Ginger (Reduced Sugar) (S$69.55 for four pieces).
You can purchase it here.
3. Visit Halloween Horror Night
Yes! The well-loved scare festival Halloween Horror Night returns this year after it was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Held at the Universal Studios Singapore (USS), this year’s event will take place in the form of an exhibition featuring spooky props and behind-the-scenes of past years festivals. The event will run until Nov 7, alongside USS’ Trick or Thrills event where you can meet various popular characters from Despicable Me and Sesame Street.
Make your reservation online here.
4. Eat some eggs
Eggslut, a popular Los Angeles restaurant, has opened its first outlet in Southeast Asia right here in Singapore.
Located at Scotts Square, it offers up an egg-dominated menu, comprising six core signature sandwiches. This includes a ‘Bacon, Egg & Cheese Sandwich’, an ‘Egg Salad Sandwich’, as well as a ‘Cheeseburger’.
Eggslut is located at #01-12, Scotts Square, 6 Scotts Road, Singapore 228209. It opens daily from 8am-10pm.
5. Watch Shang-Chi
Marvel’s latest film ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ dropped in cinemas earlier this month and it is shaping up to be quite the blockbuster. The show tells the story of Shang-Chi, a martial arts master, who has to confront his past after he gets entangled in a web of the mysterious Ten Rings organisation.
‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ is directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, with Simu Liu, Awkwafina, Meng’er Zhang, Fala Chen and Michelle Yeoh starring as its main cast.
