Earth Day at Science Centre Singapore
Let the kids channel their inner Greta Thunberg this Earth Day at Science Centre Singapore where a myriad of complimentary eco-friendly activities awaits. Spread across various exhibitions, these exciting programmes include completing a photo trail to receive a limited-edition token (while stocks last) and a bonus activity at the EcoGarden to receive an engraved seed. And if you've got extra shopping bags at home, you can donate them at the centre as part of its centre-wide green initiative.
We're usually weary of what we see on Instagram. More often than not, good looking pictures don't make for good tasting plates. But shots of Korio's cheesy sandwiches loaded with various other toppings and doughnuts glazed in various shades of pink, white and brown caught our attention. And its close proximity to the Time Out Singapore office, we decided to give this Instagram pleaser a try. Korio's tiny space within Far East Square is pretty bare. It probably fits about five people at a time and there are no seats available. A glass case of doughnuts tempts us as we read the letterboard menu outlining the daily specials: Tuna Melt ($12) on Mondays, Grilled Halloumi ($13) on Tuesdays, Peking Duck Sammy ($14) on Wednesdays, Vegan Sammy ($13) on Thursdays and Pulled Porkless ($11) on Fridays. The signature Grilled Cheese ($9) and the Breakfast Sammy ($9) are available throughout the week, although the latter tends to sell out by lunchtime. We managed to get out hands on a tasty grilled halloumi sandwich on Tuesday, which comes generously packed with rocket leaves and tangy roasted cherry tomatoes and caramalised onions between two greased up slices of sesame sourdough. The combination worked seamlessly, with a little bit of sweet, sour and spicy with each bite. We also enjoyed the Grilled Cheese ($9) oozing with cheddar and American cheese over whole-wheat slices of sourdough. We appreciated the sweetness the onions provided but thought it could use a touch of heat to balance o
Smoke and Mirrors
In skyscraper-dense Singapore, rooftop bars are no rarity, But Smoke and Mirrors stands out with its storied location (perched atop the former City Hall building; the current National Gallery), and stunning panoramic views of the city’s skyline. The menu combines spirits and magical illusions – and makes use of equipment like a rotary evaporator to redistil and create unexpected flavours in its cocktails. It’s hard to go wrong when choosing from The Real Art of Drinking section. The signature menu features libations inspired by various artworks and iconic spaces By The Padang ($25) reimagines the national monument to create a rum-based drink mixed with apple brandy and spices; while Bananas in a Glass ($26) takes inspiration from a work by local artist Georgette Chen, Bananas in a Basket, to create a tropical tipple that highlights an in-house barrel-aged canna-infused cognac.
Tanjong Beach Club
It's been years since Tanjong Beach Club – affectionately known as TBC – first replaced Sentosa’s beloved pop-up bar The Shack. Since then, TBC has proven itself a worthy successor with its laid-back vibe, buxom crowd and refined plates. Inspired by coastal cuisine from around the world, dishes include the miso baked hamachi collar, tuna cracker, grain salad with octopus, and hokkaido scallop ceviche. Cool down with drinks like the Malayan mai tai (TBC's local spin on the classic drink!) and Copabanana – guarantee to quench your thirst after a day spent flaunting – or checking out – that bikini bod.
Launched by Michaela Anchan in 2014, Woolf Works is the only co-working space dedicated to women – a concept birthed during Anchan’s years as a stay-home mum, when her frustration with working alone at home led to her dream of owning a space where she could work and interact with other women. Monthly access starts from $200 for a part-time desk which you can use one day a week, and peaks at $600 for a permanent sit/stand desk that’s attached to a storage trolley. Besides providing facilities to support business women, Woolf Works hosts classes on an almost daily basis. These are curated based on members' interests and include topics such as photography, pilates, parenting and marketing.

Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum
Visit your favourite specimens and exhibits again when it reopens on July 16. The museum will open from Thursdays to Sundays, from 10am to 5pm. A dinosaur fossil, a sperm whale skeleton, the only specimen of the largest species of turtle ever recorded, and an Asian Brown Flycatcher specimen collected by the famed British naturalist Alfred Wallace himself – these are just some of the highlights you’ll see at the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum. The gallery is perfect for anyone interested in wildlife – but not the legwork it involves. Fifteen thematic zones display specimens that run the gamut of plants, fungi, mammals, dinosaurs and more. Surrounding the museum are four gardens such as the Phylogenetic garden, which charts the evolution of plants and habitats. The other gardens – themed after mangroves, swamps and dryland forests – feature plants that are unique to these habitats. Bonus: entry to the gardens is free.
For craft beers, pool, darts, foosball, table tennis and beer pong under one roof, head to Hopheads. The bottles on offer from entry level raspberry soda-like Wittekerke Rose ($12) and owl-logo Hitachino Nest ($12), to the extremely hoppy Ninkasi Tricerahops Double IPA ($15), and wine drinker-favoured Rocheforts ($19). A revolving selection of brews pour out of the two draft taps, including a hoppy Stone Go To IPA ($12/375ml) and Anderson Valley Leeber Paw Pils ($12/375ml) on our visit. The team knows enough to recommend a beer and one of the deli-standard salads ($12.90), burgers ($17.90), tapas ($7.90-$17.90) and sharing plates ($34-$45). The craft beer hype may continue to grow, and HopHeads is a welcome addition, helped by its easy ambience and tasty brews.
Helmed by Scottish chef Seumas Smith of Michelin-starred restaurants Lords of the Manor and Dinner by Heston, Moosehead serves up Mediterranean cuisine with Asian influences, such as a refreshingly light burrata ($21) accompanied with house-pickled zucchini spheres and a Thai basil and curry leaf pesto. For mains, you can't miss the inka-grilled Australian lamb chops ($42) covered in a savoury Korean chilli flakes spice rub, perfectly complemented with a spoonful of romesco sauce.The spotlight for desserts goes to the banana ice cream ($10) made with inka-roasted bananas, sitting atop a coffee cookie crumble and served with a generous amount of salted caramel foam that ties everything together.
Nicholas Teo, previously sous chef, has taken over as head chef of :pluck from Brandon Teo, who still has a stake in the restaurant. 'Singapore Asian Fusion' is the name of the game with chef Teo offering new treats like tom yum cereal salmon ($15), buttery grilled squid ($15) and spicy grilled beef ribeye ($16). These are served with your choice of bee hoon or rice during lunch but plated in larger sharing portions during dinner.
7Cycle is a small boutique gym that specialises in indoor cycling and kettlebell training, ensuring that you get an all-round workout in both stamina and strength. But 7Bootcamp is more than just spinning to loud music while lifting hand weights. This strength and conditioning class requires you to get off your bike and do bodyweight, plyometric and functional training exercises – they vary according to the day’s trainer – such as TRX rows and kettlebell deadlifts in 30-second intervals. Technique and form are of utmost importance, classes are capped at six people for the trainer to make corrections and give personal feedback to each participant. One thing we love about 7Cycle: everyone is provided a heart-rate monitor to wear during the session, so you won’t be able to get away with slacking off or overexerting.
Four zero-proof alternatives to try from the largest alcohol-free online bottle shop in Singapore
Take your pick from Singapore’s largest alcohol-free online bottle shop. Staying sober need not be limiting; Free Spirit stocks up a wide array of healthier, zero-proof alternatives – from beer, bubbly, and many more. Sip on craft brews from Untld and Lucky Saint, raise a toast with Noughty chardonnay, or stock the home bar with spirits from Seedlip and Lyre’s. Overwhelmed? Then browse its selection of curated packs; tried-and-tested combinations of sample packs and starter kits to help kickstart a guilt-free evening. There will certainly be something for everyone. Photograph: Noughtyaf/ Facebook Noughty Alcohol-free Sparkling Chardonnay ($40) Ring in the end of 2021 with some bubbly. This wholesome libation from Noughty comes with all the fizzy sweetness, but none of the naughty side effects. Organic, vegan chardonnay has been de-alcoholised, and each pour comes with just half the regular sugar content (just 2.9g of sugar per 100ml, and under 14 calories per glass). Photograph: Lucky Saint Beer/ Facebook Lucky Saint Lager ($4.50) Where else can you find a beer that contains the same amount of alcohol as a banana? At only 0.5 percent ABV, you can quaff down bottles of this without having to worry about getting a hangover. Nor need you fret over compromised taste; Lucky Saint Lager boasts a refreshingly crisp and citrus-like finish.

What's trending in Singapore this month
The top things in Singapore people are talking about in May 2018 – served up in bite-sized format. 1. You so atas Last month, a social studies guidebook (not in MOE approved textbook list, we must add) caused quite a bit of a stir with its classification of various socio-economic classes in Singapore, although that didn't stop people from labelling certain actions, albeit in a joking manner, as "high SES" or "low SES". After years of joking that your friend is too atas, you now have a new phrase to add on. 2. #Rendangate When a Malaysian contestant was told by MasterChef UK judge Gregg Wallace that her rendang lacked ‘crisp’ a few weeks ago, a wave of online furor was unleashed across Southeast Asia. But in the face of the heated debate, crispy rendang has now officially become a thing with various local food chains like IKEA serving up renditions of the polarising dish. But if you're looking for the best, look no further than our list of best rendang in Singapore that's definitely not crispy. 3. Move over, Uber It doesn’t matter if you’re Team Uber or a staunch fan of Grab because we no longer have the luxury of choosing between the two. On May 7, the Uber app shuts down its operations in Southeast Asia. And as we bid the ride-hailing service farewell, all we can say is: we’ll miss your promo codes. 4. Legs Benedict Film fans were in for a treat when British star Benedict Cumberbatch stretched his legs in our city in April. He turned up at the Avengers: Infinity War
Meet Singapore’s golden girl Priyageetha Dia
You’ve seen Priyageetha Dia’s golden artworks on Reddit, Stomp, Instagram but have you seen it in person? Now you can – and she doesn’t mind if you only want a selfie with it. By Charlene Fang Priyageetha Dia with Upgraded Charlene Fang Residents of Block 103 Jalan Rajah are a lucky lot. Unlike other HDB blocks in the area, they’ve been “upgraded” twice in a span of a year. First, with a staircase covered in gold foil in 2017 and more recently with 24 gold mylar flags (Absent – Present 2018) hanging from the top floor. Too bad both were removed in a matter of days. Call it a metaphor for how local art is perceived in Singapore: undervalued and misunderstood, an ongoing issue 26-year-old Priyageetha Dia (@pxdix) strives to address with her work. Her latest exhibition Upgraded is a development from the 24 flags that was taken down. Featuring 10 gold mylar film flags emblazoned with distinct red tags (kim zua, 888, vandalism, readymade) inspired by the public’s reaction, the artwork about an artwork is Priya's latest attempt to discuss what constitutes art in Singapore. We spoke with her at Art Porters Gallery to find out more about the show, and how joss paper and the town council ended up helping her cause. Why the word kimzua? That’s actually why my flags were taken down, because [people complained] they look like joss paper aka kimzua. How long did it take for you to create Upgraded? This took me five days. In fact, these flags were bought by the town council as c

52 Weeks of #ExcitingSG: Week 2
Welcome to Time Out Singapore's 52 Weeks of #ExcitingSG – our commitment to showing you the best of what's going on in the city this week. Every Monday, a guest writer who's "in" with the scene shares a recommendation on what to see, eat, do or buy in the city. This week, TOSG's Acting Editor, Nicole-Marie Ng, starts the ball rolling. What are you most excited for this week? Tearing up as Eva Peron belts out Don't Cry For Me Argentina during Evita which officially opens this week at the Mastercard Theatre. This is the first time the iconic Tim Rice and Andre Lloyd Webber musical is showing in Singapore and it features so many songs I love but have never seen acted out on stage. I'm a huge fan of musical theatre and it's exciting to see so many renown Broadway productions make their way to our shores. Pangdemonium's The Father also premieres this week on March 2 – although I booked tickets for next weekend just to space things out a little. I've caught every single Pangdemonium production over the past three years and have not been disappointed by a single one. I bawled during Falling, a play on autism it put on in 2016, and I'm sure The Father, which tackles dementia and family relationships will be just as emotional. The quality of acting, direction and even set design by Pangdemonium raises the standards of what Singapore theatre should be and I'm looking forward to seeing it bring to life more original works by talented local playwrights like Alfian Sa'at and Joel Tan.

The Time Out Singapore team share their favourite memory of 2017
To round off the year, we got the entire Time Out Singapore office to answer this question: ‘What’s your favourite memory of 2017?’ Read on to see what our colleagues had to say and here's to a happy new year to all our readers! “Celebrating my father’s 80th birthday in Italy with three generations of our family. Happy emotions for us all being together in one place before my family jumped on a plane and moved to Singapore to start another chapter in our lives.” – Tim Webb, Managing Director “Travelling to Moscow by train from Latvia! It was a 16-hour ride in a third-class carriage packed with other people who didn’t speak a lick of English but it made me fall in love with rail travel. The destination at the end of the journey (and dining at White Rabbit, one of the World’s 50 Best) was a bonus.” – Nicole-Marie Ng, Acting Editor “Seeing Dua Lipa do her signature moves on stage at Good Vibes in Genting Highlands – she really knows how to work the crowd! Then on day two, I was ankle deep in mud and soaked through at LANY and Kodaline’s sets but it was such a memorable weekend.” – Michelle Ng, Section Editor “I had the rare opportunity to learn how to ice-skate from the folks at Disney on Ice and it was so much fun! It was a gruelling two-hour session but I can do backwards crossovers and forward lunges like a pro now. Easy peasy (not really).” – Sofiana Ramli, Writer “Finally witnessed my best friend tying the knot with her ‘baby’! Grateful to be the maid of honour and had the
