Things To Do This Weekend In Singapore (29th – 31st March)

It’s that time again where the entire world is fading to darkness to raise awareness of global warming. Earth Hour 2019 is happening this weekend, and if you’re looking at moving into a sustainable lifestyle, there are a couple of festivals and events where you can learn more about eco-friendly practices and shop ethical brands.

Other than that, we found a #veryrelatable exhibition about what it’s like to experience burnout and a Flat Iron-inspired steakhouse pop-up.

1. Earth Hour 2019

Becoming a conscious citizen doesn’t happen overnight, but you have to start from somewhere! The world’s environmentally conscious festival is back, and other than the Lights Out hour, the World Wildlife Fund in Singapore is hosting a festival from 29 to 31 March at the Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza to promote sustainable living. Join up-cycling workshops, meditation sessions, and talks on how to convert and tackle food waste, or shop sustainable brands who make an effort to reduce their carbon and environmental impact. Sezairi, Preetipls, Subshaman, Subsonic Eye and more artists will entertain you over on the Earth Hour stage, and it’s all healthy food and yummy bites over at the Food For Nature section, where you can try the latest plant-based Impossible BSK Burger from Bread Street Kitchen.

Don’t forget to join the rest of the world in turning off all your lights and electricity from 8.30-9.30pm on 30 March. You can still get involved as they are still looking for videographers to capture the moment the city powers down.

Date: 29 -30 March 2019
Address: Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza, 2 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018972

4. Feather Blade Pop Up – Inspired by English Steakhouse Flat Iron

Feather blade

Inspired by his time at English steakhouse Flat Iron, Sheen started his own pop-up steakhouse here in Singapore so that everyone can enjoy good steak at a good price. A 200g fillet of steak only costs $21 at Feather Blade, and is slathered in butter and cooked sous vide before being seared for that smoky, charred flavor. The menu only has one main – steak, but there are four different sides and a wider selection of beers, spirits and wines to choose from to go with your meat. The Feather Blade will be setting up shop at Zui Hong Lou temporarily, with plans for a more permanent location in the future.

Date: Every weekend till end April 2019
Address: Zui Hong Lou, 90 Club Street S069458
