Things To Do This Weekend In Singapore (3rd – 5th May)

We’re loving how this month starts off with a holiday! Which means that we’ve only got to wait for two more days before its the weekend again, and this May starts off pretty exciting with the opening of the flashy Coco Club and Gucci Osteria. Foodies will love to check out the RWS Street Eats or the Geylang Serai Bazaar, or get snappy at the super Instagrammable 22 Stories.
1. Geylang Serai Bazaar 2019

The annual Hari Raya Bazaar is back this weekend, and will be running for the next month. Crowds flock to the stalls lining the streets around the Wisma Geylang Serai area to break fast with the various mouth-watering eats and shop decorative items like traditional clothes and rugs. And in case your intention to go is just for the ‘gram, this year’s bazaar will have a heavier focus on traditional Malay food and lesser ‘hipster’ food stalls. But all stalls will be Halal, and you can expect offerings like lobster rolls and a White Rabbit bucket drink.
Date: 3 May – 5 June 2019
Address: area around Wisma Geylang Serai

Korean and Middle Eastern fusion food stand has opened its first outlet in Singapore right smack in the middle of the CBD. The tongue-in-cheek store sells middle-eastern flat breads called pide, but with a Korean twist, with fillings like beef bulgogi, beef and cheddar, garlic relish chicken, hummus, soft-shell prawns, and mushroom balls. Their pocket breads will also taste slightly different from a traditional pide as the bread is more spongy and pillowy.
