Russell Peters

Russell Peters

Catch funnyman Russell Peters in the flesh as he returns to Singapore with all-new material. The Canadian stand-up comedian last toured in Asia in 2015 and 2016 to sold-out houses and took time off to film Almost Famous for Netflix and a yet-to-air series The Indian Detective – but he’s back and ready to leave you in stitches in this one-night-only show.

Sunset Beerga

Combine the mindfulness of yoga with the (guilty) pleasure of guzzling ice-cold bottles of beer at the lush pastures of Chijmes. Follow Broc & Bells SweatMaster Brandon Chong – founder of Yoga Instiinct and ambassador of Lululemon and Manduka – as he guides you through his unique rendition of yoga that combines movement alongside alignment in asanas. After the session, mingle with fellow like-minded participants as you let loose and soak in the good vibes. Just be sure to bring along some form of identification because you'd understandably have to be at least 18 years of age to take part in this spirited event.

Adventures in Grimmsneyland
Theatre

Adventures in Grimmsneyland

Forget a true love’s kiss, happy endings and all that jazz. In Andsoforth’s latest pop-up theatrical dining series aptly named Adventures in Grimmsneyland (no, not Disneyland), fall into the wicked and raunchy side of the fairytale world where your princesses and princes are maybe not who they seem. Step through Mirror Mirror and roleplay as villagers, farmers or bystanders as you embark on a whimsical adventure. While you watch the story unfold, appetising dishes inspired by each fairytale are whipped up and served. And of course, in true Andsoforth fashion, the event’s location a secret so you’d wanna sign up to get all the deets.

Wildlife Parks' CNY Celebrations
Things to do

Wildlife Parks' CNY Celebrations

From electrifying LED dragon dances to animals prying festive treats from fire crackers, Singapore’s 4 wildlife parks – Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari, River Safari, and Singapore Zoo – proffer a refreshing way to usher in the Lunar New Year with the myriad of engaging activities that they have in store. Snap photos with the auspicious God of Fortune mascots that will grace all four parks with their presence or embark on a Zoo-diac trail to see what the Year of the Dog has in store for you. After working up an appetite, savour specially curated festive delicacies like mandarin orange cheese tarts and almond and peach cakes.

Best hotels with hourly rates

We all know it can be hard to get some privacy at home, particularly if you've got helicopter parents who insist on open doors whenever your significant other is around. Even behind closed doors, you might have a squeaky mattress that gives you away, or perhaps you just want a change of scenery. Whatever the reason (we're not judging), your neighbourhood Hotel 81 or Fragrance Hotel is the place to go if you need a room for a few hours without burning a hole in your wallet. And with nearly 44 branches combined, there is indeed one in almost every neighbourhood in Singapore (though, of course, you'll find the largest concentration of them around Geylang). Here we check in to a few branches to see how they stack up.

Singapore’s best parks for picnics

After spending many a sweaty hour trekking around various parks, here's our list of the best spots to picnic at in Singapore. These places don't require you to travel to the middle of nowhere, they're scenic, they have some shade and decent patches of grass, and most importantly, they're located near the toilets (but not too near).
