What's on in Singapore this week

Damien Rice

Turn down the lights – the Irish spinner of slow-burning yarns, Damien Rice, returns to Singapore to headline his own show after storming the Neon Lights festival stage last year. His soulful, stripped-down tracks need no introduction, but we’re hoping he belts out the hits from his latest album, My Favourite Faded Fantasy.

Sport and fitness

Zespri SunGold KiwiFest

This Sunday, instead of snoozing in bed, swing by Zespri SunGold KiwiFest for a workout, music by DJ Shellsuit and Take Two, and a picnic in the city. Start your day with a Vinyasa-style yoga class by MC Swtlkr, then move on to a POP Pilates workout by famed YouTube fitness instructor and Zespri Kiwi mascot, Cassey Ho of Blogilates. And keep your energetic little ones at bay with the colouring wall and lawn games, or just let them run amok in the play area. This event is held at Empress Lawn, next to Asian Civilisations Museum.

Aviva Superfundae

Mark the (play)date: Aviva Superfundae promises 30 activities spread over five zones – think a Ninja Quest inflatable obstacle course, a Mega Candy Cannon that blasts gummies, and squiggly cars and skate scooters. And just for the adults, there’s also a ‘beer dash’, which we can only hope is exactly what it says on the tin.

Things to do

Pink Dot

Draw a dot in your calendar for June 4, and make it pink while you’re at it. The annual Pink Dot rally rolls around again to ‘support the freedom to love’, covering Hong Lim Park in cheerful shades of this year’s Pantone Colour of the Year (rose quartz, if you were wondering). For this year’s edition, the organisers are taking the event back to its activist roots. Besides speeches by prominent members of the LGBT tribe, booths manned by support groups, and a concert featuring local talents like ShiGGa Shay and Charlie Lim, there are placards circulating around the park on which attendees are encouraged to pen their thoughts on what it means to be present at the gathering. Because instead of the usual top-down photo of the great, big – and literal – pink dot shot just after sunset, the organisers hope to portray these placards in one sweeping vista. So catch a volunteer and grab a marker to scribble down your support.

Kids

Manatee Madness

If your kid is seven and above, bring them down to River Safari for a chance to be up close and personal with their manatees. See how the slow marine mammals undergo medical training, prepare food for them and learn about their diet and behaviour with on-site manatee caretakers. Don’t forget to take photos with the manatee mascot, and take part in the specially-prepared craft activities. Every three children aged seven to 14 must be accompanied by one adult. Online registration required. Each group takes a maximum of 30 people.

Mikkeller Running Club Singapore #1

Despite the national obsession with jogging, we're not particularly fond of tightening our trainers to go on an evening amble – well, unless there's the promise of a cold pint waiting at the end of the slog. With the launch of Mikkeller Bar's Running Club here in Singapore, we've now run out of excuses. To become a lifetime member of this run-and-chug crew, buy a t-shirt ($25) and join marathoner and craft beer drinker Desiree Koh at the start of the 3-kilometre run (it's at the Prinsep Street bar). Sprinters and stragglers alike get a free glass of a house brew for completing the course. Not a bad way to kick off an evening of more beer chugging, we think.
