A pulp fiction film screening and afterparty, along with a prom night-themed party

It’s time for the weekends again, after an exhausting (albeit short) work week. This round, hit up themed parties, indulge in boozy brunches and catch riveting performances—all before the dreaded five-day work week returns.

HEALTH
Here’s an exercise routine we can get with. Shake Farm will be hosting a Wine & Yoga class which will allow you to sip on organic wine while practicing yoga. In this class, experience wine tasting, while at the same time achieve your balance and some zen. Aug 16

COMEDY
Instead of visiting Canvas to club, head there for a night of comedy—Fuzz Night #5. It’ll be hosted by the very hilarious Fakkah Fuzz, so you’re guaranteed to hurt your sides LOL-ing. Aug 16

PARTY
British-Norwegian producer Alan Walker will finally arrive in Singapore to bring his global hits such as “Faded” and “Alone”, to the much-lauded Marquee Singapore. While online tickets have been sold out, one can still head to the world-famous nightclub early to get tickets at the door. Aug 16

PARTY
Celebrate the arrival of the next full moon with a party at Intermission bar at The Projector. Max Planck will be spinning vinyls and dishing out jams from genres like old school 90s techno, electro and trance. Find treats at the bar, as well as cider, wine and beers. Entry is free. Aug 16

PARTY
Take it to Zouk’s dance floor once again on Friday night, as 100% Bulletproof presents Ghetto with Big M will see the behemoth nightclub transformed into a hardstyle space. DJ Ghetto and Big M will be bringing you hip hop hits, so you know it’ll be one hell of a party. Aug 16

PARTY
International, big name music producers Yeti Out and Nosaj Thing will be making appearances for the debut of No Standing Only Dancing, presented by event organisers Collective Minds and Kampong Boogie. As its name suggests, expect plenty of groovy beats that’ll have you dancing all-night long. Aug 16

FILM/PARTY
Hold off on watching the latest Quentin Taratino movie and instead, indulge in the film that defined an era at Taranti-yes: Pulp Fiction. To wholly embrace the screening of the iconic movie Pulp Fiction, The Projector will be hosting a night of milkshakes and Royale McCheeses, complete with an afterparty that offers a costume competition and dance-off. Need we say more? Aug 17

PERFORMANCE
Arguably the most well-known dance company locally, the Singapore Dance Theatre will be putting up yet another dreamy and sophisticated dance performance, at Masterpiece in Motion 2019. The line-up includes the iconic American Balanchine piece Serenade, as well as the late Ballet dancer and choreographer Choo-San Goh’s Fives. Aug 16-17

THEATRE
Back by popular demand, mark your calendars for some mid-August cultural fun from local theatre group How Drama. The production of Fat Kids Are Harder To Kidnap X is mainly inspired by current affairs and trending topics, so this re-staging of their 10th anniversary show will definitely bring up issues such as the HDB rulings, Oxley saga, crispy rendang and more. While the cast will attempt to perform 31 plays within the hour, the audience will get to decide the order. Extra points for the interactive factor. Aug 16-18

MARKET
Meet up with your Carousell dealers—sans the embarrassing MRT gantry waiting game—at Carouselland 2019, to be held at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre. Themed “Small Dreams, Big Possibilities”, the virtual marketplace will once again take physical form and entice with an extensive list of over 300 vendors manning booths offering various knick-knacks in honour of everyday aspirations. Aug 16-18

EXERCISE

WORKSHOP
Enhance your urban garden with helpful tips and tricks from local farmer experts. Encompassing topics such as fertiliser applications and plant propagation techniques, Nurturing and Growing Your Urban Garden by Mercure Singapore on Stevens will allow intermediate home gardeners to learn ways to sustain their own farm. Also, get to take home a pot of stem cutting, a bag of soil generator and garden journal to track your urban gardening journey. Aug 17

WORKSHOP
Don’t let poor doodling skills hold you back. At Creative Food Journaling (New Edition) Workshop with Caryne Chua, learn basic watercolour techniques, how to sketch your favourite foods and grasp the basic foundation of drawing and painting so you can easily journal your meals. A food and dessert journaling (plus brush calligraphy) expert, Caryne Chua will guide you through the entire art process. And to top it all off, free-flow drinks are provided. Aug 17

Quick, bust out your old prom night dresses and suits; we hope you can still fit into them. Aug 17

PHOTOGRAPHY
If you’ve got a good ol’ (but still usable) film camera and a hankering for shooting films, take it to Deck, for a film photography workshop initiated by the art space and House of Photography. There, experience and learn to develop your own black-and-white negatives besides shooting a roll of film. House of Photography will provide a roll of B&W film, but participants are welcome to bring their own. Aug 17

MUSIC
If you missed your chance to catch The Jazz Djogets at Neon Lights last year, here’s your chance to hear them live. Known as a Singapore based all-star power-kampong septet, the band plays dishes out groovy tunes that’ll have you swaying to the beat all-night long. For just a $10 cover charge, you’ll get to enter Choice Cuts Goods + Coffee, to hear their obscure collection as well as their new song, "Do You Like It?". Aug 18

MUSIC
