The 5ingaporean Weekender: 5 Things to do this weekend (25 – 27 March 2016)

It is towards the end of March now and with Easter weekend coming up, it seems that there is definitely no places that you will find uninteresting to hand out at this weekend. Everywhere is having Easter celebrations, being it be just down below your block where the grassroots leaders organised Easter block party for the children, or at the shopping malls where there are shows and promotion going on, or (and the most obvious of all) the church where churchgoers will head there for some Good Friday and Easter sermon and then to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.

But, well, nevertheless, for those of you who are looking for events that are ‘un-Easter’, like I do, here are 5 events that you can head to and enjoy the last week of March.

1. Gain for knowledge on how to take care of your pets at Pet Expo 2016

There is a Pet Expo that will be going on at Singapore Expo Hall 7 from today till Sunday. Being marketed as Singapore’s ‘Largest Pet-ducational Fair’, it is definitely a must-go if you are a pet owner, or if you are considering to adopt a pet in the future.

There will be a series of informative seminars, educational workshops and entertaining contests and competition that will help you learn more about your pets needs.

Ohya, and guess what? If your pet is feeling lonely, you can bring him/her to ‘The Pawfect Match: Season 2‘. Organised by AVA, this is to help your pets to get a perfect match. Basically, speed dating for your pets. Well, you’ll never know that you might also find yourself a good match there too if you are interested in the owner of the pet that your pet is being match with.

Call that a Double-Date.

Event: Yoglo @ ilight Marina Bay

Date: 26 March, 2016
Time: 7PM – 10PM
Venue: The Float @ Marina Bay
Here’s one thing that’s part of my bucket list: to exercise or do yoga by the Marina Bay. It’s like the best place to keep your mind relax with some yoga. As a frequent to the Marina Bay area (didn’t you realised that most of the to-dos that I’ve recommended are all around that area HAHAHA), I really like the sea breeze that will make you feel cool during the night. And while looking at the beautiful buildings around that area, you really appreciate the work that everyone has put in to bring Singapore to become a successful city-state.
For those of you who want to do yoga, high-intensity workout and sightseeing and enjoy the sea breeze, Yoglo @ ilight Marina Bay is definitely for you. HIIT session will kick start from 7pm to 7.30pm while Yoga will start from 8pm – 9pm. Shed some calories and keep your mind at ease, there’s not many chances where you will get to attend an event that will cater to both your physical health and your mental health!
