Things To Do This Weekend In Singapore (5th – 7th April)

In a blink of an eye, and we’re in the second quarter of 2019! This weekend’s pretty chill, but you’d want to take it slow as a lot is going on next week with many highly anticipated openings. Before that, you can try walking from one end of Singapore to the other in the new Coast-to-Coast Trail, pick up some 90s retro shirts at a vintage flash sale, or get inspired at the annual Singapore Ink Show.

1. Walk/ bike/ skate from Jurong Lake Gardens To Coney Island on the 36km Coast-to-Coast Trail

If you’ve ever wanted to walk from one end of Singapore to the other, it’s now possible with the new 36km Coast-to-Coast Trail which links Jurong Lake Gardens and Coney Island Park. It’ll just take you slightly over 6 hours as you make your way through Bukit Batok Nature Park, Singapore Botanic Gardens and the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park as the Coast-to-Coast Trail links parks and nature areas through dedicated paths. Eventually you’ll be able to walk one round around Singapore as there are plans to link the entire island in one gigantic loop route.

View the Coast-to-Coast Trail guide here or download the C2C app from App Store or GooglePlay for an AR-interactive walking experience.

2. The Kumar Show

Combining drag and comedy as he conquers the stage, television and film, Kumar has made a name for himself as one of the leading drag comedians in Singapore. We’ll never get enough of Kumar, who’s back for a month of laughter at Canvas this April as he shimmies his way through lip-synching sets with go-go boys and poke fun at racial and LGBTQ issues in that quirky way of his. Kumar will always be one of the more prominent voices in Singapore regardless of race, gender and sexual orientation, but due to sensitive topics only those 18 and above are allowed to attend his shows.

Date: Every Tuesday and Saturday through April
Address: Canvas, 20 Upper Circular Rd, #B1-01/06 The Riverwalk, Singapore 058416
Tickets: from $25, now available online

Brands like Nike and adidas logo tees that are no longer in circulation can be found here, as well as pop culture tees where iconic shows like F.R.I.E.N.D.S and The Flintstones take the center. You might even score some bootleg 90s crew shirts – the campy shirts are so obviously fake that they somehow look cool.
