Welcome to the new normal. That is, if you’re vaccinated. Now that dining out and heading to the gym is permissable, it’s safe to say that there’s plenty of exciting stuff coming up. To spice up your weekend, we’ve gathered some things that you can do both online or offline. This week, sign up for a virtual sports festival; shop for traditional fashion pieces; and more.


When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping. Retail therapy may not be scientifically proven to soothe the nerves but it sure does make us happy. COMO Shambhala – a holistic wellness retreat – is hosting a pop-up event from 17 to 26 Sep at The Pantry, located at Dempsey Hill, with an assortment of self-care and wellness products on sale. The event will also feature outdoor yoga and pilates classes that will have us working up a sweat while reaching inner peace.

Move aside Broadway, the circus is in town. La Clique Singapore is a live performance show taking place at the Marina Bay Sands expo where circus acts meet comedy, cabaret, and music. Be prepared to witness daring acts involving fire, aerial gymnastics, and more up close, especially with the tight-knit seating layout. The show has existed for about 15 years, moving from city to city such as Sydney, London, and New York where countless theatres were sold out – is there anything left to say?

SPORTS | The Ireland Funds Remote Global 5k 2021

Marathons and charity runs have been missing from our lives since the start of the pandemic and we kind of miss it because it makes for great motivation to get us on our feet. This year, The Ireland Fund is partnering up with the Special Olympics Singapore to host this five-kilometre fitness event and raise funds for our Olympians who need financial support for training purposes. Be it running, swimming, or walking and donating, the choice is ours.

EAT | Kele Mooncakes

Mid-Autumn Festival is right around the corner, 20 Sep, making this weekend the last opportunity to get our hands on mooncakes before the celebration begins. Local confectionary Kele, which is known for its pineapple tarts during the Chinese New Year period, has a spread of traditional and snowskin mooncakes – the latter consist of unique flavour combinations such as avocado macadamia, sudachi caramel, and pink guava ume. The brand has partnered up with urban gardening specialist The Plant Story to conduct workshops where we can turn the empty mooncake boxes into a little garden.

SHOP | Programmed Activities

Hosted by North East Social Club, this day market event will feature a myriad of shopping options such as clothing, records, art, posters, zines, et cetera, by underground artists that deserve more attention. The one-day event will take place on 18 Sep at Projector X: Riverside, time to mark our calendars and save the date.
