It's been quite a while since Phase 2 was 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, indulge in local dishes with a view, support a meaningful cause dedicated to our neighbourhood cats, and catch a bold palette of theatre films.

INSPIRE & SHOP | #VWithPurpose: Cat Mama Shop

The last couple of months — from the uncertainty of the virus to our time in isolation — have certainly put things in perspective for us. Especially when it comes to what matters most. To kick off Volkswagen's month-long newest campaign #VWPurpose, is Cat Welfare Society. In a specially designed Touran, inspired by a couple of four-legged furry friends of course, this installation at their showroom will be like no other. It is where you'll also find a pop-up store selling kitty-themed merch and cat care items. All proceeds will go to Cat Welfare Society's efforts to help neighbouring cats.

Happening from now till 1 October, head on to Singapore's first ever online mooncake fair to explore an array of mooncake options from reputable brands.

Watch | Singular Screens

A Singapore International Festival of Arts (SIFA) programme, Singular Screens celebrates the bold brilliance and captivating spirit of filmmakers around the world. Exclusively curated by Asian Film Archive (AFA), the theatre screenings will feature seven individualistic and thought-provoking films that have been flying under-the-radar. As there is a limit capacity due to social distancing measures, it's best to grab your advance tickets online now —some of the films are already sold out!

ART | An Exercise of Meaning in a Glitch Season

The National Gallery Singapore and Singapore Art Museum has launched an initiative together as a response by the arts community to the global pandemic. A contemporary art exhibition that is part of the initiative by the two local museums, An Exercise of Meaning in a Glitch Season seeks to construct a common sentiment and spotlight local art vocalisation that is reflective of global undercurrents due to the pandemic.
