Phase 3 has been introduced – and so more and more of our favorite restaurants, bars and attractions have opened their doors to customers. That being said, the more important events still remain unresolved. Don’t worry though. This week, we’re getting into our art while exercising, celebrating the Thailand Water Festival, and more.
CULTURE | Rewritten: The world before us
Here’s one statement that is sure to make people excited to take photos: There are 14 new Instagram-friendly photo spots to admire, all interspersed along a 22 mile route. And by that we mean a range of thought-provoking art installations that can be seen from Jurong to Punggol – a unique selection of rattan swings and woven hammocks; mind-blowing typography; and neon lighted fixtures that are sure to elicit admiration and appreciation in equal measure. Just be sure to wear comfortable shoes before embarking on this ambitious endeavor.
Located in 8 parks in Singapore from April 14 to June 6.
FUN | Songkran at Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore
Think of it as the equivalent of Thailand’s New Year – an affair that is best commemorated with a range of activities designed by a real Thai golf resort. Dusit Thani Laguna Singapore aims to do this through a workshop that teaches users how to make a traditional Thai dessert at tea time (best viewed as a type of steamed dumpling) as well as incorporating special menu items in their restaurants. Beyond that, the first 50 customers to book a staycation can also walk away with a Songkran-themed box filled with delicious snacks.
Located at 11 Laguna Golf Green, Singapore 488047. The promotion will be available until April 18th.
SHOP | Designer and luxury April: a woman’s wardrobe
We hope these credit cards will be in shape, as the local auction house Hotlotz put on a trunk show featuring a multitude of rare designer bags, clothing and jewelry. Interested parties can bid on items that catch their eye. Tip: Browse the current catalog of Christian Dior, Chanel, and Gucci products online before heading to the physical location to (hopefully!) Pick up your loot. Act quickly, we say.
Located at 120 Lower Delta Road, # 01-15 Cendex Center, Singapore 169208. The auction will last until March 18 at 6pm.
CULTURE | Life in Edo x Russel Wong in Kyoto
For those who don’t know, 2021 marks the 55th anniversary of Singapore-Japan relations. This exposure was supported as a result of this; a showcase that conveys the evolution of Japanese art and culture through two main mediums: woodblock prints and photography – photographed by Singaporean photojournalist Russel Wong. There are two main aspects to this exhibition: one which focuses more on the Edo period in Japan, and the other which delves deeply into “the nature and architecture of Tokyo and Kyoto” today. Japanophiles, come together.
Located at the Asian Civilizations Museum from April 16 to September 19. Find out more here.
EAT | Pop-up Edomae Omakase by Capital Kitchen
Zouk Capital Kitchen’s latest adventure involves a transformation where the iconic nightclub is transformed into an immersive Japanese dining experience. His cuisine: Edomae sushi, where raw fish is marinated and stored for several days before serving. Don’t expect to eat your 12-course meal in a Zen atmosphere, however – the food is served with thrilling hits in the background. In other words, tracks like Blackpink and Eminem depending on the day. Talk about a one-of-a-kind experience, indeed.
Located at 3C River Valley Road, Clarke Quay, # 01-05 – # 02-06, The Cannery, Singapore 179022 from April 13 to April 30.
