This year’s thematic colour is violet, which signifies creativity. Check out different interpretations and contemporary light art installations by local and international artists for a night of wonder.

Enjoy great vibes, music, and food at Gastrobeats 2022, happening from the 3rd to 26 of this month. Munch on chilli crab praffles (that’s prata and waffles combined for you) and asian-fusion fried chicken bowls while tuning in to live performances by a lineup of musicians. This year’s event has something special, too: Culinary Masters, which features innovative fusion and avant-garde takes on street foods by MasterChef personalities.

If you’re in search for a gift for a special someone, or just want to treat yourself to something cool, Public Garden’s the place to be on the 11th and 12th this month.

Madu The Bakery

Farrer Park has a newly-opened brunch spot in its midst, and it’s none other than Madu the Bakery. The cafe features a menu of decadent sweet and savoury bakes, as well as coffee and other drink options, a perfect combo for a lazy weekend afternoon. If you want to take the weekend off and enjoy some great bakes from the comfort of your pillow fort at home, that’s fine too: the bakery offers delivery too, so you can enjoy their signature Umami Mushroom bun, all while never moving a muscle.
