Things to do this weekend: Aqua Gastronomy, Singapore's first Miffy Store, and more
Phase 3's been introduced — and so, more and more of our favourite eateries, bars, and attractions have opened up their doors to customers. With that being said, bigger events still remain on hold. Not to fret though. This week, go shopping at the first Miffy themed store in Southeast Asia, dine in an underwater bubble pod in SEA Aquarium and contemplate the meaning of life when you visit National Gallery's exhibition.
EXPERIENCE I Aqua Gastronomy at SEA Aquarium
If you recall, there was quite a fanfare when SEA Aquarium first launched Aqua Gastronomy last year, where it gave customers the special opportunity to experience dining "underwater" in a gorgeous well-lit bubble pod. But if you weren't able to enjoy this unique dining experience last year, fret not — for this CNY, Aqua Gastronomy will be returning for its final edition with a new spring menu so you'll get another shot at living out your Little Mermaid dreams. Indulge in a five-course menu featuring exotic seafood and luxury Chinese dishes against the glittering backdrop of the open ocean habit. For max festive vibes, oriental lanterns will also be hung around the pod. But it won't just be your eyes and tastebuds that get to have a feast — it's a multisensory dining experience like no other, so you'll also be listening to a mesmerising ancient tale of an underwater celebratory feast told by the Lady of the Ocean to truly emulate the ambience of being under the sea.
From 14 January to 28 February. Find out more here.

EAT I Luke's Lobster opens at Jewel Changi
East-siders will be able to cut down on transport time (and fares) since they can fulfil their Luke's Lobster cravings at Jewel Changi Airport instead of having to jostle with the crowds at Orchard. The Jewel outlet will also feature a limited edition all-new Truffle Butter Lobster Roll comprising Italian truffles and creamy melted butter available from now till mid-March.
Located at 78 Airport Boulevard, #01-K209, Jewel Changi Airport.
EXHIBIT I Yayoi Kusama: Recent Paintings exhibition
World-famous Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama is back at it again with yet another exhibition featuring none other than... yup you guessed it, dots. After all, she's not dubbed the princess of polka dots for nothing. While her work is conventionally known to feature splatters of bright colours and quirky geometric shapes, her new exhibition at Ota Fine Arts, titled Recent Paintings, is minimalistic, featuring 15 monochrome paintings from the artist's My Eternal Soul series made in 2019-2020, and Clouds (2019), a sculpture installation consisting pieces of mirror-finished stainless steel forms.
Located at Ota Fine Arts, 7 Lock Road, #02-13 from now till 6 March. Find out more here.
