There are many popular and interesting Singapore events to fill up your weekends in the new year, such as Toddler Art Workshops at 8Q SAM, the Jay Chou Concert on 6 January and Singapore Art Week 2018 – a twelve-day celebration of the visual arts in venues across Singapore from 12 to 28 January. In the first month of the year you can also join in the fun and interactive family activities at the SG Cares Carnival on 13 January or immerse yourself in the Pokémon universe with your fellow Pokémon enthusiasts at Pokémon Run Carnival on 27 January.
New dieting plan for the new year notwithstanding, the weekend is a time to take a break and enjoy good food. You may even stick to a healthy diet and have a very nice meal because in Singapore there are diverse options for nutritious and well-balanced meals. Here is The Ordinary Patrons’ (TOP) round-up of Where to Eat this Weekend in Singapore for January 2018, with health-conscious patrons in mind.
