VISIT | Hell’s Museum

Your parents probably made a point to make a family outing to Haw Par Villa in bid to keep your cheekiness at bay at some point in your childhood. This weekend, it’s once again time to step into the realm of death but this time for your own pure enjoyment. Hell’s Museum is Haw Par Villa’s new experiential exhibition, where you can discover how different religions, cultures, and the ages in Asia perceive death. It’s an immersive exhibition featuring specially commissioned videos that shed light on rituals and ceremonies for the dead amongst other topics. And if you’ve remained confused for years after you first saw Haw Par Villa’s infamous 10 Courts of Hell, you can now discover how concepts behind the graphic representations of sins and punishments in the afterlife evolved.

RENEW | Balanced Living

If you’ve been experiencing skin irritation or bloatedness recently, perhaps it’s time to pay some attention to your gut. After all, a healthy gut contributes to a strong immune system, healthy heart, effective digestion, and may even help prevent some cancers and autoimmune diseases. So let’s dedicate the weekend to some self-care and getting our health back on track. Local wellness centre, Balanced Living, is launching a 10-day gut healing makeover designed to authentically kickstart your health journey, starting from inside-out. You’ll get to better understand your gut and overall health, and have a specially curated 6-day Gut Makeover Meal Plan delivered to your doorstep amongst other things. It won’t be an easy journey but you’ll have the support of Balanced Living’s leading healthcare practitioner, Toni, to guide you along.
