Welcome to the new normal. That is, if you’re vaccinated. Now that dining out and heading to the gym is permissible, 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 Rangoli & Kolam workshop; immerse in instant noodle goodness; and more.

WATCH | Japanese Film Festival: Female Perspectives 


Screening at The Projector from 8 Oct to 24 Oct, this year’s line-up features four award-winning films – all directed by female filmmakers as they focus on women’s experience and allyship in modern Japan. There’s Naomi Kawase’s take on motherhood in True Mothers; Singapore’s premiere of Ito; class drama, Aristocrats, starring gorgeous model-actress Kiko Mizuhara; as well as Tokyo International Film Festival Audience Winner, Hold Me Back.

EAT | 25 Degrees in Singapore

With the expansion of VTLs to include destinations such as South Korea and Italy, those who can’t wait to travel can indulge in some good ol ‘juicy burgers at 25 Degrees in Singapore for that taste of American goodness. Originating from the Hollywood Roosevelt in Los Angeles, it’s been endorsed by A-list celebrities as their go-to for comfort all-American fare. There’s something for everyone, so if burgers aren’t up your alley, choose from creamy milkshakes, hot dogs, and an all-day breakfast menu as you bask in the old Hollywood ambience.

FUN | Slurping Good

Though you may think there’s nothing quite as enjoyable as a bowl of instant noodles at 2am, this may just take the cake – Slurping Good is Singapore’s first instant noodle themed playground. Gather your supper buddies and head down to Tekka Place where you can settle your weekend IG post at any of their 13 installations. And if you want the world to know just how much of an instant noodle fan you are, you’ll be able to grab some Slurping Good merch while you’re there too!

EXPERIENCE | Tulipmania

With the Netherlands included in one of Singapore’s newest VTLs, you can get an early taste of Holland’s iconic tulip fields right now. After a two year hiatus due to the pandemic, Tulipmania is back at Gardens By The Bay. This year, the display traces the origin of the tulip as a rare wildflower in the wilderness of Central Asia. So, you can take a trip with the Kazakh nomads on migration through the Central Asian steppes, and discover the cultural heritage and architecture of Kazakhstan and their tulip festivals celebrating the wildflower.
