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.

Visiting art exhibitions has been put on hold, despite our vaccination rate — so let’s shift the focus on local emerging artists, instead. This art exhibition housed at Objectifs features the creative endeavours of four artists who aiming to explore spirituality, home, body, and ecology.  Workshops such as cyanotype printing and floral arrangement will also be made available to guests at $60 and $50 respectively.

EAT | TOSCANA Wine Dinner

Two things that the Italians know how to do superbly: pasta and wine. Italian restaurant Zafferano is offering a one-night Tuscan wine pairing dinner menu that highlights some of the best Tuscan wines along with a four-course meal for $148 a pop. The dishes include a variety of canapes, truffle pecorino raviolis, roasted venison loin, and more. Sit back, sip wine, and eat your hearts out.

WATCH | Forever Young

What happens when you put a bunch of retired actors together in the same nursing home? One zany musical, that’s what. Forever Young by Sing’theatre is a Swiss play that has been adapted for a Singaporean context that brings camp and comedy into topics such as dementia and ageing. The cast includes director Hossan Leong, Karen Tan, and Gurmit Singh, so be ready for lots of singing, dancing and laughing.

EXHIBITION | About Routes, Not Roots

Singapore is considered one of the youngest countries in the world, but our heritage is more than just the number of years since our independence. With the use of machine-learning technology by DASSAD, photographer Lim Kwong Ling uses video art comprising his work and the works of other artists such as Dave Lim, Adar Ng, and Woong Soak Teng that depict globalisation and how hard labour made Singapore what it is today.

Fancy a Wipeout-style challenge? Check out HydroDash at Sentosa’s Palawan Beach. Every participant has two hours on the inflatable water park to run, jump, and slide around hysterically while burning many calories because it is much harder than it looks. Don’t worry, the course is safe, especially with the life jackets provided. Just remember to wear contacts because glasses are not allowed for safety reasons.
