Here’s a list of things to do this weekend! From a fun ‘daycation’ at the beach to free outdoor yoga and virtual clubbing, we’ve got you covered.
1. High Tea for A Cause @ Pink Hope High Tea
With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many hotels have launched pink-themed high tea sets to bring awareness to the disease and celebrate the stories of survivors. Included on the list are Anti:Dote at Fairmont Singapore, The Golden Circle at Shangri-La Singapore, and 1864 Lobby Lounge at Sofitel City Centre. Diners can expect a wide range of sweet and savoury treats, all in soft shades of pastel pink for a super aesthetic high tea session that helps to advocate for a good cause.
Don’t forget to snap a picture and share it on Instagram with #TimeToEndBreastCancer and #UnitedinHopeSG for maximum impact! For every hashtag, The Estee Lauder Company will donate $5 towards Singapore General Hospital’s Breast Cancer Research.

3. Party At Home with Zouk’s Resident DJs
With the pandemic still looming overhead, clubs have been out of business for quite a while. If you’ve missed the nightlife, here’s a chance for you to reminisce some of those good old times with Zouk’s resident DJs, all without leaving the comforts of your own home! Come Friday and Saturday, DJ Che’Molly and DJ Ferng will be bringing you into another dimension with their hypnotic mixes, all available for free through Zouk’s Youtube live stream. Now’s your chance to party without leaving your bedroom and enjoy some good clubbing beats without having to pay for cover!

4. Find Some Inner Peace with Free Yoga @ Singapore Sports Hub
If you’ve been hard at work and need a breather, Singapore Sports Hub’s got just the right activity for you. As a part of World Mental Health Day, free your mind and escape into a temporary state of zen with some socially distant outdoor yoga led by celebrity practitioners such as Denise Keller and Sarah Wee! No prior experience is required, and there are even workshops that teach you how to make your own scented hand sanitiser and mosquito repellent as part of the event.
The event will take place from 8am to 6.30pm on 10th October. Each yoga session costs $5, while each workshop costs $10. For more information, visit this link. Prior registration is required for admission.

5. Watch a Dreamy Live Poetry Performance
If you’ve been itching to catch a live performance that is actually live and not live-streamed, this multidisciplinary poetry performance by Toy Factory Productions will be a good opportunity to satisfy that inner theatre-buff. Featuring 20 works of poetry from A Dream Under the Southern Borough by Chinese poet Tang Xianzu, the performance will make use of both live and virtual elements to put together a fantasy landscape that tells a dreamy story. The 45-minutes performance will be performed in Mandarin with English subtitles at 3pm and 8pm on 10th October at the Drama Centre Theatre, and will also be available through digital live stream.
Each ticket is priced at $20 for in-venue admission and $10 for streaming. Visit this link for more information.
6. Visit An Online Art Gallery
From 10th October onwards, Thriving Singapore will be showcasing the artworks of 14 visual artists based in Singapore through their virtual exhibition! As a way to bring together the community through creativity in arts and technology, the exhibit will be bringing over 30 artworks in various disciplines such as dance, music, art, and even meditation to viewers. Sounds like a perfect opportunity to appreciate some art and create some cultural awareness, doesn’t it?

7. Check Out A Cool Library Gallery Concept
Have you heard of the Library of Unread Books? For more than a decade, the interactive exhibition and private library has been building up with user-donated unread books, and will now be shown in the form of an art installation at the experimental art space I_S_L_A_N_D_S at Excelsior Shopping Centre. With a collection of 0ver 2000 donated books, the project provides a curious insight into what people choose to buy yet not read. You may even donate a book of your own and receive a life-long membership that allows you to reference books in the library!
Address: 5 Coleman St, Excelsior Shopping Centre, B1-07B Singapore 179805
8. Go On A Beach ‘Day-Cation’ @ Shangri-La Rasa Resorts
If you’ve been looking forward to heading to the beach ever since Phase 2 started, now is the perfect time to do so! Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resorts & Spa has been offering a $95 Daycation Package including a romantic sunset meal, a drink, access to the beachfront and the pool, and unlimited water sports. Are there better ways to unwind after a busy week of work or school than to chill by the beach and watch the sunset with some heavenly barbequed meat and a glass of wine? We think not.
