Weekend fun

Text: Jean Chua


Phase 3's been introduced — and so, more and more of our favourite eateriesbars, 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, dine in front of a virtual cascading waterfall in a Japanese bar, get your dose of cute and fluffy at the world's first Molang-themed pop-up cafe, and enjoy a musical experience at Wild Rice's newest production.

Chinese New Year is well and done, but if you find yourself still reeling from withdrawal symptoms (especially since, you know, work has resumed), Wild Rice has a theatre production to reignite the festive spirit in your souls. A family-friendly show, Wild Rice's latest musical The Amazing Celestial Race tells the fascinating tale of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals in their quest to emerge as champion in the legendary zodiac race. With songs, dance and witty humour, this musical comedy will leave you feeling lighthearted by the end of it, regardless of your age.

Available till 21 March at Funan Wild Rice Theatre. Find out more here.

If you didn't get enough me-time last weekend, (we get it, CNY festivities can be quite overwhelming) then relax and unwind as you get your cultural fix at the Asian Civilisation Musuem's Faith Beauty Love Hope – Our Stories, Your ACM exhibition, an introspective exhibition of special stories from the heart and imagination of staff and supporters of the museum. Gain insight about the artwork as you hop on a musuem tour that will reveal personal stories about the ACM community that spotlight the diverse network of passionate individuals behind the museum.

DINE I Taki Izayaka Bar

Yes, you can now go to Japan without having to leave Singapore. Cue Taki Izakaya Bar, an indoor dining establishment that will actually teleport you to the land of the rising sun thanks to its hyper-realistic virtual scenery. You'll also be able to enjoy your sushi against the whimsical backdrop of majestic torii gates that lead up a fantastical make-believe mountain, which will literally have you feeling like you're back in Japan among the iconic shrines in Kyoto.

It's a time of trepidation and uncertainty for us all, thus it's imperative that we get our dose of cute and fluffy to stay sane. Thankfully for us, we no longer have to travel to far-flung lands to lift our spirits — Kumoya will be launching the world's first Molang pop-up cafe in Bugis. The interior of the cafe is decorated with Molang, a cutesy cartoon bunny character, and follows a pastel theme. Have a cutesy tea party as you sink your teeth into colourful IG-worthy desserts and confectionery that will bring you on a massive sugar high.

Not forgetting, of course, that the car ride will also be accompanied by an audio tour that will shed greater insights behind each artwork.
