For Your Approval, Please

Taking its name from the hated catchphrase you'll find in work-related emails to the bosses, this exhibition highlights the various identities most of us have to wrangle with, be it at home or in the office. Local artist nicfoo’s exhibit features his self-coined 'storygraphs': the superimposition of one photo over another, which is then attached to a piece of original music by Clarence Chung.

River Hongbao

Gather the whole brood for this one – the iconic Chinese New Year event returns for its 30th edition with a nine-day festival. Apart from spectacular lantern displays, visitors can look forward to a performance of Journey to the West by the Song and Dance Theatre in Nanjing City, a showcase of traditional Chinese handicrafts, food stalls with local and regional delicacies, getai and xinyao shows, as well as an amusement park, which is home to arcade and carnival games, 3D animatronic dinosaur rides and more. On top of that, a pyrotechnic and fireworks display takes place nightly at 9pm (except for Chinese New Year's Eve, when it will take place at midnight).

Super Bowl 50 Live

Bro-down in style at Hombre Cantina as you feast your eyes on the 2016 Super Bowl 50. It's a live screening, so if you're a true blue American football fan, you know where to be. Nosh on non-menu items like chilaquiles (fried corn tortillas) or beef menudo, both of which come with a beer or margarita for $25. There's also a lucky draw (each set meal ordered counts as one entry) to win a free bottle of Tres Generacions tequila and discounts on your next visit.

5 of the best photography spots

Kampong Buangkok Photo: GRPS It’s a far trek out, but it’s well worth the effort for a good picture. Chickens scratch in the muddy shade of jackfruit and banana trees in this traditional village of wooden houses. But go soon: the clock is ticking as watchful developers turn their eyes to Singapore’s last remaining kampong. From Buangkok or Hougang MRT, take a taxi to Lorong Buangkok, along Gerald Drive Little India Photo: Singapore Tourism Board Colourful street-life scenes can be captured any day of the week in this lively part of town, but Sunday is when the area really pulses with with activity. For the best shots, head to Buffalo Road and Campbell Lane, where bright rows of jasmine garlands hang next to heady spices and clay oil lamps. Little India MRT Punggol Beach Calling all nature photographers! With its L-shaped jetty and moss-covered rocks peeping out from the blanket of sand at low-tide this undeveloped shore is one of the few places where you can see fishermen casting nets and setting crab cages. From Punggol MRT, take a taxi or bus 82 to the end of Punggol Rd Chinatown Photo: Singapore Tourism Board Look past the ‘doll’s house’ renovations of the major tourist streets and you’ll find signs of old-style Singapore – a Taoiststyle deity-statue maker at work in Mohamed Ali Lane, barbers sharpening razors in side alleys near Thian Hock Keng Temple, and seniors playing checkers of comparing songbirds next to Sago Lane. Chinatown MRT Esplanade Bas
