What to do this weekend (1 September – 3 September)
Singapore’s biggest tech show is back! Aside from the plethora of electronics and gadgets available – including exclusive deals on products from brands like Intel and Asus, the fair also has tons of fascinating programmes and activities lined up. Visitors can take a spin on the PLAYSTATION, check out the XYZ Robot or even build a computer from scratch with your own hands! But if you’re there strictly to shop, you can still cash in on the festivities with their lucky dip, which has $500,000 worth of prizes with no minimum spend. You can also trade-in old gadgets and unwanted games for cash vouchers that truly put the good in goodbye.
The Seletar Mall will be gearing up for a month full of fun and adventure at their ‘A Tale of Fun Gone Wild' event. The month-long affair will have a Mini Standard Obstacle Course along with a ninja warrior-inspired course for the young ones, and a week-long Esports festival with the chance to win cash vouchers and prizes. Specially for kids, an overnight camp – A Night in the Mall – seeks to thrill campers with treasure hunts and mini adventures. For those who are more of a fan of shopping, a lifestyle & toys fair by BHG and a baby fair by FairPrice Finest will also be happening.
Renovating or redecorating your home? You might want to check out the My Home Grand Furniture & Reno Expo ending this weekend. The fair has a wide range of exhibitors – including award-winning interior design firms, workshops, exclusive discounts and special renovation packages only available at the show. Select items to create your ideal home from from the myriad of home goods, including furnishings, electronics and homeware available.
Interested in how some of the iconic buildings such as Singapore Sports Hub and Golden Mile Complex came to be? A Common Line | One Global Studio by DP Architects showcases the firm’s work in Singapore, which has played a critical role in shaping the urban landscape that we know today. The exhibition prompts visitors to question the function of architecture and urbanism and how factors such as socio-economic shifts and evolving cultures have transformed our environment. Never-seen-before drawings and models will help present a behind-the-scenes look at buildings like the Esplanade as well as projects out of Singapore.
Held from 4 August to 4 September, this weekend is the last chance to view Hak Tai’s Bow and Brother’s Pool. The exhibition will feature installations such as “Six Horses representing the six principles by Lim Hak Tai for art education” and “Hak tai’s Bow”, which are both inspired by Lim – NAFA’s founding principle. The first half of a double bill exhibition, Hai Tai’s Bow and Brother’s Pool will act as an homage to him and Brother Joseph McNally, two of Singapore’s pioneering art principles.
Date: 4 August – 4 September
