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, meet life-sized dinosaurs, listen to local indie music, or catch a German flick.

EXPLORE | Changi Airport Connector

Spend your weekend with more than 20 life-sized dinosaur models at the newly opened Changi Airport Connector. A 3.5km cycling and jogging path joining East Coast Park to Changi Airport, the new link serves as another recreational option for the weekend. Besides cycling from East Coast Park and back, you can also explore Jurassic Mile — the largest permanent outdoor dinosaur park in Singapore — or dine at the Hub & Spoke Café, where the glasshouse decor and picture-worthy food makes for a perfect shot to post on the 'gram.

Changi Airport Connector opened on 12 October. For more information on the connector, click here.

MUSIC | *Scape Music Day Out

Scope out the local indie music scene with *Scape Music Day Out. The annual music event returns this year with a virtual twist to adhere to social distancing measures. Organised by Scape, the programme for this year includes a music showcase, an exhibition, music conferences and more. The stellar line-up includes up-and-coming musicians Rene; indie-synthpop duo Whirring; rock band Approaching Aphelion, and more.

Happening on 16 to 18 October. For more information on the programmes, click here.

FILM | German Film Festival 2020

Celebrate the German Film Festival this year with an array of contemporary German films. Organised by the Goethe-Institut Singapore since 1978, the German Film Festival in Singapore has partnered with indie cinema The Projector for its 24th edition. Catch limited screenings of German contemporary drama films at the cinema, or watch other selective film options from the comfort of your own home.

From 15 October to 1 November. Click here to purchase tickets.

HORROR | ArtScience Late at Home with Fauxe

Spooky season continues with ArtScience Museum's special horror edition of ArtScience Late At Home with local artist and musician, Fauxe. The virtual event sees the local multi-hyphenate instrumentalist, alongside collaborator sp8cefish, showcasing a hair-raising transmutation of cinema into music. A livestream Q&A will also take place with Fauxe answering burning questions regarding his approach and methods to this presentation.

Happening on 15 October. For more information, click here.

WATCH | da:ns festival

The annual da:ns festival has gone online this year, with a series of enthralling performances and workshops. 2020's rendition of the festival sees various virtual programmes, including on-screen performances and backstage reveals. Free basic dance classes, ranging from Balinese to Bollywood dancing, are also on the programme. For those advanced in ballet or contemporary dance, a creative 10-day workshop centred around award-winning British choreographer Wayne McGregor's Living Archive will be held virtually as well.
